What a day! On a rare mid-week daytime game, the Boston Red Sox completed a series sweep of the Minnesota Twins, winning a nail biter in vintage walk-off fashion. 

After a 0-0 game was broken up by a Minnesota home run in the tenth inning, the Sox responded with back to back home runs by David Ortiz and Mike Napoli to tie and then win the game. It was the first time the Red Sox had won in walk-off fashion on back to back home runs since June 14, 1999. 

A great game for photos, and a solid end to a successful homestand overall. 

I’m off from baseball for a few weeks, as I’m headed across the pond! More to come soon.
