Game 85 recap: Sweet victory

These may be the only three hits Pedro Ciriaco records all year.

Highest WPA: Pedro Ciriaco, .415
Lowest WPA: Jarrod Saltalamacchia, -.181

Uh, wow. When the top of the first started with two Gomez errors, a bunt single to Gomez, and a three-run homer, I was less than optimistic about the team’s chances of victory. But then Doubront settled in and, eventually, the offense was able to break through. They couldn’t have done it without the help of four Yankee errors and some generous BABIP, but the point is that they did it, and now all of a sudden Jon Lester is starting tomorrow and it’s possible to head into the break with a split of what looked like a sure sweep just four hours ago.
