The blown save was not the low-point of the outing for Joel Hanrahan. Two batters after he permitted a game-tying solo homer to Brian Dozier, the once-again closer for the Red Sox (thrust back into the role he’d lost to Andrew Bailey) issued a walk to Josh Willingham. In the middle of that at-bat, he “felt a little pull, like my forearm went a little bit with the ball.”
At the time, he though it was minor, something with which he could continue pitching. It wasn’t.
