I get what you are saying, but they also could easily be 1-4.
As everyone else is saying, today's win was really significant. They basically traded out the win they needed yesterday for the game they should have lost on paper today.
It doesn't seem like game 6 of a 162 game season should be a big game tomorrow, but I feel like it's really important. Win and you are 4-2, have won two straight series and two straight games, and leave town in first place with momentum. Lose and you are 3-3 and feeling like you left wins on the table before you go play the best team in the National League.
The Sox ace needs to do tomorrow what the Mariners ace couldn't today.
