Closer and ALCS MVP Koji Uehara didn’t have to throw too many pitches last night. He had tossed his third pitch of the night when Jon Jay hit the infamous ground ball to Dustin Pedroia, starting the chain of events that led to the walk-off obstruction call. As a result, Red Sox manager John Farrell said he is willing to use Uehara for more than three outs in Game 4 if the need arises, per Alex Speier on Twitter.
Uehara last pitched more than one inning in Game 5 of the ALCS against the Tigers. During the regular season, he did it nine times, allowing a run in just one of those nine appearances.
