Rodriguez gives honest take on his poor Game 1 start for Red Sox originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Boston Red Sox turned to Eduardo Rodriguez to start Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night, and he couldn’t even get out of the second inning.

Rodriguez last just five outs. He gave up two hits, two earned runs and walked two batters (with one strikeout) over 1 2/3 innings.

The Rays fed off the momentum of their hot start to the game en route to a 5-0 victory in the series opener.

Rodriguez gave an honest assessment of his lackluster performance while speaking to reporters after the loss, via Christopher Smith of MassLive.

The Red Sox will send another veteran left-hander to the mound Friday night with Chris Sale starting Game 2 at Tropicana Field. 

It will be Sale’s first postseason appearance since he recorded the final out of the 2018 World Series as the Red Sox defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5.
