The Boston Red Sox are an enigma, baby. But every time you can turn Lucas Giolito into the White Sox bullpen with a shot to steal a win, you can check that off your list as being very impressive. Marco Hernandez found himself up with the bases loaded in a tie game in the ninth at Fenway, and he chipped one into the perfect spot in the hole to end this one.
The Sox continue to glide right alongside a Wild Card spot. It's not where they envisioned being, but there's a ton of time left on the clock.
And besides, plenty of great things have been accomplished starting in that one-gamer.
