Jake Peavy battled for the Red Sox on the mound, but every potential Red Sox rally had been stifled, either due to an unorthodox double play and a lack of hitting with runners in scoring position.

Yet John Farrell went to the bench in the top of the seventh, tapping Jonny Gomes to hit for the struggling Jarrod Saltalamacchia before making the much-debated move to insert Xander Bogaerts into the lineup for Stephen Drew.

Bogaerts, who hadn’t dug in to a batter’s box in a game since Sept. 29, calmly worked a walk against Jake McGee.

The rookie’s patience led to the Red Sox’ first runs of the game, and the two runs on the board were all they would need for the win.

Now, the Red Sox get to hang out for a few days and wait to find out who will be heading to Fenway Park on Saturday night for Game 1 of the ALCS "
