Jackie Bradley Jr. has been struggling at the plate and there have been calls to pull him from the starting lineup. Last night in the 11th inning in Baltimore, the Red Sox centerfielder took away what looked like a sure game winning home run off the bat of Trey Mancini! It was ridiculous! At least for one day, Sox fans were still happy he was in centerfield.
Oh, BTW, Andrew Benintendi hit a home run in the top of the 12th inning and the Red Sox went on to a 2-1 win at Camden Yards. Wouldn’t have happened without JBJ’s heroics!
