Red Sox vs. Indians
First things first, the Sox need to win Game 5. With Beckett on the hill against Indians ace C.C. Sabathia -- who gave up 8 runs in Game 1 -- things are already looking up for the Sox. Beckett will need to pitch deep into the game to give a breather to the bullpen, which has pitched 15 innings over the last three games and has surrendered 11 runs in the series.
