That call for a miracle? It seems to have been ignored. Through the first two innings, things have gone about as well as the eighth inning did Wednesday.
But for Marco Scutaro, the Sox might have found themselves blown out in the first. But the shortstop’s terrific catch over his shoulder and a long-ranging play nearly behind third base helped keep the Jays off the board following a leadoff double.
More strong defensive play at short couldn’t save Miller again in the second, however. With three straight hits to lead off the the frame, the Jays took a quick 1-0 lead, and then had J.P. Arencibia hook a low breaking ball up and out of the park to left field to build the lead to 4-0.
This is gonna be a long one…
