Red Sox Game 16 Recap: The One Where Ross Was Awesome

Highest WPA: David Ross, .368 (1-2, 2B, 2 BB, RBI)
Lowest WPA: Dustin Pedroia, -.202 (0-4, GIDP)

Can we make Friends jokes a thing for David Ross, the same way we’ve made Not Another Teen Movie jokes a thing for Jake Peavy? Probably not, if for no other reason than that I’ve never actually seen Friends, and I rather doubt that Sportspun has, either. Oh well.

Anyway, David Ross had a really good game. His big hit came in the ninth inning, driving in the eventual game-winning run. That run was moved into scoring position by a pinch-hit single from Mike Carp. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say that David Ross and Mike Carp were both good at baseball, and that perhaps they should play more often. It’s a radical thought, I know.

On the other side of the ball, Jon Lester was awesome. The White Sox’ offense isn’t the most fearsome in the game, but eight innings, nine strikeouts and no walks is a damn good line against any team. It’s going to be really sad to watch him pitch for someone else next year.
