The Red Sox crazy-ass 7th inning stretch last night – walk, single, wild pitch, infield hit – pulled Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy’s chestnuts out of an open fire.
As the hardreading staff previously noted, Shaughnessy wrote off the Tampa Bay Rays after Game 2 of the ALDS. The Rays promptly won Game 3, and led Game 4 after six.
But then . . .
Jacoby Ellsbury scored the go-ahead run in the 7th inning of Game 4 of the ALDS.
Bring on the . . . whoever.
And Shaughnessy lives to write another day.
Your lament goes here.
