Not wanting to use any more pitchers in a blowout loss to the Yankees last night, the Red Sox called on first baseman/outfielder Mike Carp to work the final inning. And it wasn’t pretty.
Carp threw just 15 of his 38 pitches for strikes and walked five batters, although he did induce a 6-4-3 double play off the bat of Brian McCann and ended up allowing only one run in the first pitching appearance of his career.
He threw about half fastballs and half knuckleballs, and MLB.com has the video:
Carp averaged 82 miles per hour with his fastball and also threw 18 knuckleballs at an average of 68 miles per hour.
