Boston Red Sox Photos: Wednesday, August 16, 2017 vs. St. Louis Cardinals.

Wow, another crazy one last night! Mookie Betts came through to give the Red Sox their ninth walk-off win of the season. It’s been fun to document the late inning excitement this team has provided all season. Here is a gallery from the end, as well as a few from the 1967 Boston Red Sox 50th anniversary reunion.

It’s nice to be back at it at Fenway Park after a few weeks of shooting out of the country, and it was even nicer to be welcomed back with an exciting walk-off win to shoot. After giving up a two run lead in the ninth inning, the Sox bounced right back and got it done in the tenth, giving them their second straight walk-off, third this home stand, and eighth this season.

Let’s hope we can keep it going!

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.
