If the Red Sox could put up a bit more of a fight at the plate against Kevin Gausman this time? That'd be just fine. Honestly, don't even need to win! With a four game lead in the East, it's going to take a lot worse than a loss against Gausman to take the shine off the old rose.
Of course, it would be great if they did win, but I don't know that anyone should really be expecting it. Just...make it a little more interesting, and a little less depressing, so that win or lose, it'll be nice and easy to move on to tomorrow.
(Also just win Red Sox c'mon you can do it)
