The Red Sox had success against Sabathia and Fausto Carmona in Games 1 and 2 because they stayed patient at the plate. They worked five walks against each starter, and each was gone before the end of the fifth inning (sound familiar?). The Sox would be wise to take the same approach against them the second time around. Sabathia pitches in Game 5 and Carmona in Game 6.
