The Red Sox and Rangers were tied at three heading into the bottom of the ninth. Jonny Gomes led off the ninth with a double to center and then the Rangers intentionally walked Dustin Pedroia in hopes that David Ortiz would hit into a double play. Ortiz had another idea crushing the first pitch he saw for a three-run homer to win the game.
Sean McAdam joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich to discuss the win over the Rangers on Thursday night at Fenway, what the Sox did in the 2013 MLB Draft, Jonny Gomes and this team winning games late.
This season the Red Sox have come from behind and won games late many times this seasons a lot more than they did last season. Is this a good sign for this season moving forward?
After the Sox recorded a 69-93 record in the 2012 season, the they found themselves with the seventh-overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft. The Sox used that pick to get Trey Ball, a left handed pitcher from New Castle High School in Indiana.
What does McAdam think of the 18-year-old left-handed pitcher?
