RED SOX MANAGER JOHN FARRELL:
On tonight’s pitching:
“Joe Kelly came out tonight and didn’t overthrow the baseball. He was down in the strike zone…he used a good mix of
his secondary stuff to keep guys off-stride…a lot of efficient innings and he was able to get into the seventh fairly easily.”
On Victorino’s catch:
“Victorino made just an incredible acrobatic catch to double off a runner…he finds a way to put the glove up in the right
spot. That’s the difference in the ball game at that point, otherwise [the Mariners] are probably scoring the go-ahead run.”
