TIME TO CONSIDER...: Who Becomes the Sox third and fourth starters in postseason?
1) David Ortiz
Ortiz's three-run homer in the seventh was the difference in this one. It was his sixth homer in his last nine games in this ballpark.
2) Eduardo Rodriguez
There's something about facing his former team that gets Rodriguez to pitch at his best. He didn't allow a hit until the fifth and allowed just two runs on four hits over 6 1/3 innings.
3) Jackie Bradley Jr.
After an August slump, Bradley is mashing again, with a solo homer and a single last night, giving him a .328/.395/.594 slash line since Aug. 31.
