The Red Sox were two outs away from losing their sixth straight game...then I guess David Ortiz decided he wasnt fucking around anymore.
He launched a three run home run off Joba Chamberlain in the top of the ninth and gave the Red Sox the lead. Then, Koji Uehara came in for the bottom of the ninth and was perfect...again.
John Lackey pitched his balls off, going eight innings, striking out five, only walking one and allowing two runs. Mike Napoli went 3 for 4 with a home run in his return from the DL and Brock Holt went 4 for 5 in the leadoff spot.
John Farrell reportedly had a team meeting before the game and apparently it worked. Im not going to save my spot for the parade yet, but last night showed me that this team has balls. And they are playing like they give a shit. That's all Im asking for right now.
