Junichi Tazawa pitched terribly in the 10th inning of Friday's win over the Mets, walking four and allowing one run in 2/3 of an inning.
Tazawa came on with the Red Sox holding a 6-3 lead in the 10th inning, then proceeded to almost blow that advantage. The strangest bit of his appearance is that he picked up the first two outs relatively easily. Then, things became considerably less easy, as Tazawa walked four straight batters to force in a run. Craig Breslow had to come out of the pen to relieve the closer in mid-inning, something that's rarely seen. We'll see if the Sox opt to continue sticking with him in this role, but Friday's appearance could not have been encouraging. Tazawa's now the owner of a 3.79 ERA. Aug 29 - 12:09 AM
