Grounder to SS, 6-4-3 double play ends the inning. Sale getting it together after being rocked in the first. Equally importantly, not too many pitches used up in that inning either

Is anything in the world more annoyingly poor than the BT Sport adverts with Frank Lumpolard?

Mookie Betts watches the 2nd pitch of his at bat fly to the back stop as the top of the 4th gets going

Betts runs the count full and extends the at bat with a couple of fouls balls before lacing a line drive up the LF line for a double

Moreland up next. Runner in scoring position, nobody out and he bloops one to shallow LF. Betts scuttles over to 3rd.

Runners on the corners, no outs and Dustin Pedroia at the plate.

Chance of a double play, given the lack of speed from Moreland. It would concede the tying run, but it would be the ideal play

Pop up stays in play and McCann catches it in front of the dug out in foul territory for the first out.

Rafael Devers takes a mighty hack at his first pitch.

...and at his second...a high 96mph fastball. 0-2
