No big postgame wrap-up today. We’ll leave you tonight with his quote from Victor Martinez:
“If the season was April, OK, we were done. But it’s six months. It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. I’ve seen a lot of teams look great for a few months and then what happens? But we stayed patient, we kept grinding it.”
Sox on May 2: 11-14
Sox on June 19: 42-28
It’s hard to believe this team was 8.5 games out on May 23.
Thanks to everybody for reading today. Have a great night and we’ll be back at it tomorrow. Clay Buchholz vs. Hiroki Kuroda at 8 p.m.
