Red Sox Game 7 Recap: Charity begins at home

 M O O K I E

Highest WPA: Mookie Betts, .270 (2-4, HR, 2 R, 4 RBI, BB, 2 SB on one play)
Lowest WPA: Dustin Pedroia, -.026 (1-3, BB, RBI, 3 LOB)

After a humbling loss to a very unremarkable Yankee squad, the Red Sox could not have had their return to Fenway go much smoother than this. The Nationals are a World Series favorite thanks to that rotation, but Jordan Zimmermann really didn’t have it today – and his defense did him no favors.

Because scorekeeping is dumb, only one National error shows up in the official line, but with something approaching competent fielding this could have been a competitive game. Instead, the Sox had a home opener that seemed a guaranteed victory almost from the get-go. When even Sandy Leon is contributing at the plate, you know you’ve had a good day.

Oh, and making that good day better? Koji Uehara is active again, and Tommy Layne is in AAA where he belongs.
