MINNEAPOLIS – About eight hours before leaving Target Field, Alex Cora offered a remarkable commentary on his team.
"It's just, the vibration is different," the Red Sox manager said at a preliminary media meeting. "Now I will tell you this. No more search. You feel it. You come every day to the ball and you feel last year. We found ways to defeat the teams. we were looking for mechanics and swings and everything else. Now it's different. Now it's just a matter of uniting everything. "
Then, after a 5-hour, 45-minute, 17-inch loss for the Gemini, Cora was asked if this overall vibration was distorted. (For more information on the loss of Sox 4-3, click here.) "No, No. In the other case, in fact," he said, when asked about any change in attitudes. "We've been in this situation ̵
It was not a game 3 at the Dodger stadium. There were good but no performances by Nathan Eovalde. It was also one inning and 95 minutes shorter than that of the Los Angeles World Series victory. But what he had to do was talk more about the 75th season's game. Here's what this baseball will do.
So, because of the brevity (because we can not use some brevity after some of these games in the end), let's mention this baby …
– David Price only five inning, giving up four strikes while throwing 73 flights. After the game, Cora assumed that this was the plan to protect the left. Price would not have put the entire plan on the shoulders of his manager, saying that the abridged exit was his case, "It was a collective decision," Price said. "It was not for Alex. It was not him. "Cora started his discovery by apologizing to the Judge's crew. The Sox manager came out to argue in the 17th inning that Eddie Rosario of the twins had come out of the dough box when he rounded up. The argument moved immediately after the game, with numerous Red Sox members shouting as domestic judges Jeremie Rehak with colleagues Jim Reynolds, Stu Scheurwater and Mark Wegner as they left the field.
"Before I start, I want to apologize to the judges," said Cora, "It's obvious that emotions take on the role." When you look at the replay, Eddie does not get out of the dough box, they've done a remarkable job for how long it is. one of those hard to swallow

– The star of the game was undoubtedly Max Kepler of Minnesota.Outfield wins the game with a single, loaded base.That happened after he tied the game in the eighth and the 13th inning, the last one was a product of lead
As for the Red Sox pitchers who were Kepler's victims:
Brandon Workman dropped eighth thanks partly to the pair of walks, allowing the twins to finish after Raphael Devers gave the visitors the lead in the seventh, and the silver trim was that Workman shined the speed that was not visible throughout the season, touching 95 million kilometers on his last night when he first got this speed this year.
Hector Velasquez's first dough was Kepler. The result was the solo homer that broke the Mookie Betts explosion earlier in the 13th. Velasquez jumped to give four innings in three strokes before succumbing to the trauma of his back as he warmed up to the 17th.
Brian Johnson was summoned to make the last shot, with Marcus Wolden the only one who did not show up, The exit did not go well, and the left-handers gave up three strokes.
"I was good, so I went there," said Johnson, who had to start on Friday. "I told AC, I told LeVangie, I feel physically well and I managed to get there and apparently I could not do the job."
– Red Sox wasted a lot of opportunities, but no one was as painful as what happened in the 17th. After Andrew Benintendi's unanimity, the outsider came third with no one, thanks to the stolen base and error. All this happens with J. D. Martinez. But, unfortunately, for the Red Sox, it was not Martinez's night, with the designated striker succumbing to one of his five shots. He was followed by landings from Devers and Xander Bogaerts, ending the threat of whimpering.
– Despite the hiccups of Workman, Velazquez and Johnson, the overall job of Red Sox's title was positive. After Pryce came out, Mike Shavarin, Ryan Broser, Matt Barnes and Colton Brewer, with Josh Taylor, who turned a pair of flawless frames, led the inexperienced inning. , "What DT did today, two innings facing left-handers and right-wingers, and Brewer and Shawn, there's always something positive about these games, we can give it to everyone this way." We did an extraordinary job, only one of those we did not finish the job, but there were a lot of positive results in today's statistics. "
The defensive point of the night was obvious, and it would be Jackie Bradley's Jr.
