Red Sox Game 18 Recap: Jeopardy

Highest WPA: BRRRRRRRRRRRRRROCK Holt, .208 (1-3, 3B, RBI)
Lowest WPA: David Ross, -.089 (0-3, 2 K, LOB)

This game was in jeopardy a number of times, with Felix Doubront laboring off the bat and then somehow being allowed to face JJ Hardy with the bases loaded in a tied game in the sixth. Then, just when the Sox finally took a two-run lead into the ninth and seemed ready to coast to victory, Koji Uehara decided to walk the leadoff man and inject just a bit of tension into the proceedings.

But that’s not why I chose this title. No, it’s much more literal than that: I spent most of this game watching Jeopardy! with my mother. We’re a few weeks behind–the last game we saw was the second game of the cute champion who looks like a cross between Emily Deschanel and Alexandra Daddario–but we blow through five or six episodes in a sitting, so we never fall *too* far back. It seemed like a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than watching a Felix Doubront start. I have no regrets.

Anyway, it seems like this was an entertaining game. David Ross got thrown at, Brock Holt did a thing, and Taz and Koji were kind enough to remind us that not every reliever the Red Sox have is a dumpster fire. Tomorrow the Sox are the Sunday night game; if it doesn’t look good early, look for the recap to be called “Once Upon A Time.”
