Bullpen Effective in 3-1 Series

Last night, the Sox went down 9-5 to the White Sox, but there was an... interesting moment, when Nick Green (backup shortstop) came in the pitch in the 8th inning, (right) he pitched 2 innings of scoreless relief in Boston's first and only loss of the series as the Sox won it 3-1. In the other 3 games of the series, the bullpen won all of the games, Ramirez, (7-3)Delcarmen, (5-2) and Bard. (1-1)Tonight through Sunday, the Sox play the Jays, and the Yankees play the White Sox. The Sox stand at 73-54 and 6 games behind the Yankees. The Sox are 1.5 games ahead of the Rangers for the top wild card position. Tonight, Beckett goes for a good game, to stop his streak of 2 really bad games, ( the first to Toronto) but if he can brush all that aside and pitch like the ace he is, there shouldn't be a problem!
