ALCS Game 4: Red Sox @ Twins

Red Sox 5, Twins 10

For the first time in this series the hometown fans had something to cheer about. Hurst got shelled again, this time the victim of Kirby Puckett’s grand slam in the 4th inning. Gene Larkin added a two-run double in the 6th off Sellers to extend the Twins lead to 10-1. With the huge lead, Kelly removed Viola for Atherton. He became uneasy about his decision as Atherton proceeded to give up four runs, thanks in part to a three-run blast by Ellis Burks in the 8th. Not taking any chances, Berenguer and Reardon got the last three outs to seal the victory.

With a 3-1 lead in the series, the Twins will try to wrap things up tomorrow in front of their home fans.
