Blake Swihart was the hero in One night he was not even in the starting lineup.
The Red Sox Catcher came as a pinch-hit during the tenth innings, but it was the 13th when he counted his flattery by throwing a principle-double on the right midfield to give Boston a 2-1 win give walk-off victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night at Fenway Park.
It was a bumpy season for Swihart, who did not see much playing time at the beginning of the campaign.
"Everyone knew what was going on early (with Swihart) It was hard to play him," said Sox manager Alex Cora after the game, as seen on NESN's postgame coverage. "We had three catchers and it's difficult to play three catchers in the league."
Cora realized he thought the 26-year-old had "tried too hard" when he had the chance to play, but after Christian Vazquez had broken with a broken little finger, Swihart got a second chance.
"There's no more panic, he's progressing in the counts, he beats good clubs, I think his swing is back to what it was in spring training," said Cora, "he's exploiting it, I'm glad me very much for him. "
It was a rare, quiet night for many of the Red Sox felons, with Mookie Betts, Andrew Benintendi, J.D. Martinez, Mitch Moreland, and Xander Bogaerts, all of them without flare. But the reason for the order was big for Boston, which makes up all seven goals of the team.
"We find ways (to win)," said Cora. "Here's a lot of preparation, we've done a good job in a tight match."
Here are some more notes from the Monday Red Sox Phillies game:
– During Cora's press conference, Boston infield acquired Ian Kinsler from the Los Angeles Angels.
"We think he makes us a better ball club," said baseball team president Dave Dombrowski, as seen on the NESN postgame coverage.
– David Price was outstanding and only gave up a run over eight innings while he stroked five. He was saddled with the non-appearance, but it was encouraging for the Southpaw to go deep into the game.
His next launch will be Sunday night against the New York Yankees.
– Swihart's Walk-Off snatched a Team 0-for-15 series with runners in the standings of players except Martinez.
– Boston is 24-6 in the last 30 games.
