“We don’t have a lot of size, we manufacture [runs],” Turner said.
Stillman made sure to stop the Braves during his 2 2/3 innings. He struck out four before giving way to Bill Crosson in the sixth.
By then, the Red Sox were on their way, one step closer for Rob Stillman to claim his second TOC as a coach.
In the fifth, Capoccia, a left-handed batter, went the other way to left-center field for his seventh homer of the year, giving the Red Sox a 3-0 lead.
“That was my favorite pitch right there,” said Capoccia, who went two for three with two runs batted in and an intentional walk.
Levi made it, 4-0, in the sixth. He singled to right, bringing home the speedy Jeremy Beltz from second.
This is where Rob Stillman might have done things differently with Capoccia waiting for his chance to bat.
“I should’ve held that last runner at third then we would’ve had the bases loaded and then they couldn’t have really walked in a run,” he said. “Maybe I should think better as a coach. I’m just trying to squeeze another run.
“You’ve got to have faith in your whole lineup, not just one guy.”
