Valentine on final game of the season at Fenway

Bobby Valentine talked with the media after the Red Sox dropped their home finale to the Rays, 4-2.
Valentine looked at Jon Lester's start and how his bullpen fared Wednesday.
I said before the game he was on the bottom of his tank but he pitched great, he said. Who would have thunk it would be Carlos Pena against left-handers that beat us but I guess thats the way this seasons been going. He made really good pitches the whole night. The 2-1 pitch to Pena might have been in the sweet spot but he grounds out to second on the pitch a lot too. Gave us six innings, four hits, with a little more offense we might have been able to get him a win.
