RED SOX MANAGER JOHN FARRELL:

On how the team performed tonight…

“We were victimized by the homerun tonight. The three run home run by Seager is a cutter that [Peavy] was trying to get
off the plate. He caught some of the plate and [Seager] is a good pull hitter and it ends up down and in, in his power
zone. I thought once again we created numerous opportunities and yet the four-run 5
th
inning is a hole we don’t come
back from.”

On Jake Peavy not showing ‘his best stuff’…

“It’s been mistakes on the plate that he hasn’t been afforded the opportunity to get by with them. He’s been I think better
in terms of not issuing walks tonight. But when he’s made mistakes on the plate that’s when he’s paid for them.”

On not the team’s inability to afford to give up multi-run innings

“Anytime you give up multi-run innings or a big inning, regardless of the stretch you’re in offensively, you’re challenging
yourself to come back from. You know the [Mariners] went to their bullpen early and they mixed and matched and they
got some advantage matches up tonight to kind of thwart any sort of opportunities we might have had. But the early
deficit has been trouble form us to come back from.
