This one got away early. Jake Peavy, who performed so well in the ALDS clinching game, was not able to repeat in ALCS Game 4 and the result was a series tied at 2-2. Peavy—after a 1-2-3 first inning—got wild and woolly in the second. He walked three and was almost out of the inning with just one run, but Dustin Pedroia could not turn a tailor-made double play. After that, the deluge. Five runs later, Boston's night was pretty much done in the eventual 7-3 loss. Game 5 is tonight featuring Jon Lester against Anibal Sanchez. Hold onto your hats—except for the pink ones.
