Red Sox manager John Farrell joins Gary Tanguay and Jessica Moran on "Uno Sports Tonight" and discusses what John Lackey said to him to keep himself in Game 6.

He kept saying "This is my guy. This is my guy," when Farrell approached him with Matt Holliday at the plate in the seventh inning of Game 6.

"Oh, he was saying more than that," Farrell said.

It was actually catcher David Ross that convinced Farrell to keep Lackey in for one more batter. Lackey walked Holliday before Farrell returned to pull him.

"Once Ross said 'We got this guy,'" Farrell said. "Then I said, 'OK, I'll get out of here.'"
