Red Sox wait — again — to find out next opponent
BOSTON (AP) — Shane Victorino was hit by one pitch in the right arm and another in the ribs. That brought the total to four in four playoff games for the Red Sox outfielder who was plunked more than anyone else in the AL in the regular season.
“Any way to get on base,” said Victorino, who also beat out an infield single to drive in the go-ahead run on Tuesday night in Boston’s 3-1, AL division series-clinching victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.
“Do I want to get hit? No. But whatever it takes,” said Victorino, who combined with leadoff hitter Jacoby Ellsbury to reach base a combined five times in the game. “Teams that win World Series, when the No. 1 and 2 guys are getting on, doing what they need to do, that’s how you do it. ... Whatever it takes to get on base.”
