Sean McAdam's three takeaways after the Giants' walk-off win set up a World Series meeting with the Royals.
According to Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area, Chili Davis chose the Red Sox over the Yankees and received a three-year deal to become the Sox' new hitting coach.
3yDavid Ortiz's insertion into the lineup didn't ensure that the Red Sox would score runs.
3yThe Red Sox adjusted their lineup for more offense, but their only RBI came from John Lackey, who pitched well in the loss.
3yAdrian Gonzalez will move to right and David Ortiz will move back into the lineup, but this switch won't solve all of the Red Sox' problems.
3yThe pitcher had a June 20 opt-out clause in his minor-league deal with the Red Sox and chose to remain in Pawtucket.
3yIt took Tommy Hottovy eight long years to make his MLB debut, and it was definitely worth the wait. He was just sent back down to the minors, but having tasted the Big Leagues, he wants more.
3yWhile it was nowhere near a masterful performance Tuesday night, Josh Beckett wasn't that bad. Still, a couple of poorly located pitches were enough to make the difference.
3yCliff Lee is the man on Tuesday night, throwing his third straight complete game shutout in the series opener with the Red Sox.
