ST. LOUIS - One of the abiding strengths of the Boston Red Sox this entire season has been their ability to turn the page.

If ever there was a page that needed turning, an event that required selective amnesia, it was the chaotic ninth inning of Saturday night’s 5-4 defeat in Game 3 of the World Series, a game that will forever be identified by the words “obstruction walkoff.”

“It’s been a characteristic of this team from Day One,” said Red Sox manager John Farrell. “There’s a reason why this team has never lost more than three games consecutively all season long. These players have the ability to bring their focus to the ballpark, no matter what happened the previous day.”
