Red Sox Game 10 recap: Firm yet supple TIGHT EMBRACE

Highest WPA: Xander Bogaerts, .259 (2-4, R, RBI, walkoff)
Lowest WPA: Daniel Nava, -.076 (0-1, sacrifice bunt that technically hurt even though it worked out)

Is there a story to this game? Joe Kelly pitched well, until he didn’t. Ubaldo Jimenez pitched well, until he got himself tossed. Ryan Hanigan hit a homer, which is nice. Nobody else really did anything. Buck Showalter even went to his closer, eventually, and got punished for it. Because the universe is cruel, I guess.

But hey, if we’re going to benefit from the universe cruelly punishing managers making good tactical decisions, I’m totally on board with that. The Red Sox are now 7-3 despite having approximately one and a half good starting pitchers, so that’s nice. Unfortunately, Clay Buchholz is pitching tomorrow.
