Red Sox brought the tying run to the plate in the bottom of the 9th last night in David Ortiz. But the big man K’d, and Napoli followed with a DP grounder to 3rd. That’s the way it’s gone for the Red Sox recently.
Yet only 3.5 back and with the offense and defense looking to improve when Drew is through his personal spring training. Drew had 2 extra-inning walkoff hits last season, and several key 9th inning hits.
In the meantime, Buchholz tangles with Hutchison. The Blue Jays lead the league in extra-base hits. Given Buch’s spotty 2014…this could get ugly fast. Here’s hoping for better results than the recent past have provided. Comment away.
