 Red Sox need to find a way to win inside domed stadium
posted 8 years ago

ST. PETERSBURG -- Back under the white roof and the quirky catwalks, the Red Sox have another chance to figure out Tropicana Field. This time, the reward for doing so could be a trip to the World Series. There was a time -- as in almost every year before this season -- that the Red Sox, backed by thousands of New England transplants or vacationers in the stands, used to manhandle the Rays in the Trop. But this year, the Rays handled the Red Sox to the tune of eight wins in nine games. It wasn't until September -- after six losses in a row -- that Boston finally found a way to win at Tropicana Field. In other words, with the Rays holding the "dome-field advantage" in this American League Championship Series, the Red Sox must figure out a way to win a road game or two. What can Boston do to reverse its woes in St. Petersburg? "I think just stop their momentum," said Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia. "When they get something going, their crowd gets involved and this place gets loud. You can't hear, you can't communicate defensively. We've got to find a way to stop their momentum. I think both teams feed off their crowd. Their crowd has been awesome all year. You can't hear anything, they've got those cowbells going on." But the Red Sox have no time for cowbell distractions. They need to defy the unfavorable elements and find a way to win.
