Time for a Correia Change

Ron Gardenhire may find himself Gardenfired if he keeps on telling his pitchers to pitch to David Ortiz. The designated hitter had another two-home run evening, putting him in sole possession of third place in career home runs in a Red Sox uniform. He is 68 home runs behind Carl Yazstremski and 137 fewer than Ted Williams. I wonder where his statue will be placed?

Kevin Correia was pummeled by the Red Sox lineup for five runs over four innings. The relief corps surrendered another four runs. Michael Tonkin in particular had a rough time in the ninth. With the bases loaded and two down A.J. Pierzynski laced the ball the left field line and drove in two runs.

It was nice to have those two additional runs with Edward Mujica finishing off the frame. Mujica allowed Trevor Plouffe to homer into the left-center seats. But the five-run lead proved to great to overcome.

The Bruins also couldn’t overcome the Canadiens’ early lead. They fell short 3-1 in the series finale. They just didn’t have the Game 7 magic that powered them through their 2011 playoff run.
