Alfredo Aceves shut down the Baltimore Orioles for 2 2/3 innings on Friday night. Unfortunately, the Orioles ‘pen matched him blow-for-blow and ultimately outlasted the Sox en route to a 6-4, 13-inning win.
Aceves showed off every pitch he could throw in a dominant outing, but the O’s were able to withstand the ferocious attack and force across a couple of runs late, after he had departed the game.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette was blown away with what Aceves did in this game — just like the Orioles batters — so he’s awarding him our “Bullpen Battle” award despite the Red Sox losing. Who’s your player of the game? Vote in the poll below and leave your thoughts on the game in the comments.
