It's only appropriate
- That the same day Alex Cora turned 43, it is the same day the 2018 Red Sox clinched the AL East Pennant.
It was also 5 years ago today that the unthinkable occurred. With the 2013 Red Sox down 2-1. Jonny Gomes came to bat to lead off the inning against future Cy Young winner Max Scherzer. He got a big hit off the top of the LF wall leading off with a double. Following a Bogaerts walk and a Steven Drew strikeout, Jacoby Ellsbury grounded to SS where Jose Iglesias bobbled the baseball loading the bases. What happened next? The game clinching hit.
"That's hit well, into the corner. It is GONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE a grand slam!"
"GRAND SLAM!!! SHANE VICTORINO WITH THE GRAND SLAM AND THE RED SOX HAVE THE LEAD"
As a Bostonian, with the occurrence of the bombings in April. It was the greatest moment I have ever witnessed in a Post Season as a baseball fan.
