Seems Crisp beat Morel’s throw to 1st for the 3rd out in the 9th. Could Morel have tagged third base before the runner got there instead of throwing at 1st? Look at the video and judge for yourself. Seems very close to me. In any case, as J.J. says, Sergio must get his breaking stuff in the strikezone.

Pitch classifications provided by the Gameday Algorithm and may be inaccurate. Pitch Type LWTS correspond to how many runs were likely to score on a particular pitch based on average run expectancy when each pitch was thrown and what happened as a result. Negative scores indicate more effective pitches.

Time to Plate is the time, in seconds, that it takes an average pitch of this type to reach the plate. This is strongly correlated with velocity, but also factors in movement.

Now if the other slackers wake up…

Well, the slackers in the offense scored 2. Now, it’s the slackers in the bullpen…

Game ovah! Sox win! Sox win!

And it’s Canonyero, not Grand Canyon Hawk.

Lillibridge!

8th inning, Sox up 3-2. 1 on, Coco Crisp hits one to the fence. Brent Lillibridge is tracking it. Ball goes over the fence. And then:
