If things had gone a little differently last Winter, Jon Lester would have been in Kansas City and Wil Myers would have been in Boston. On Friday afternoon, Boston was the last place Myers wanted to be after he committed one of the strangest faux pas in post-season history. With the Red Sox trailing 2-0, Myers called for a deep David Ortiz fly, then, inexplicably, gave up on it as it bounced over his head. Jonny Gomes then laced a fly ball off the Green Monster to plate the tying runs, and the hounds had been released. After the 32-pitch fourth inning, Boston led 5-2. They went on to lacerate Rays pitching for seven more runs in a 12-2 Game One rout. Boston had multiple hit games from Shane Victorino (3 hits, 2 RBIs), Jacoby Ellsbury (2 hits, 1 RBI), Dustin Pedroia (2-5, including the lead-off single in the big fourth), and Jarrod Saltalamacchia (2-4, 3 RBIs). Lester stepped it up big time on the mound, going 7 2/3 solid innings—giving up just three hits (two of which were solo HRs) and striking out seven. So, one of the "invincible" Rays pitchers has been vinced. Game Two tomorrow at 5:30 PM at Fenway.
