Allen Webster Defines Victory; Sox Win, 4-2

The last time Allen Webster was given a 3-0 lead, he blew it. Last night, he almost did, but hung on to get the win in a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels Of Anaheim, Orange County, California, United States of America, Western Hemisphere, Earth, Milky Way, Universe. Mike Napoli homered and Yoenis Cespedes had a two-run double to pace the offense. Jackie Bradley, Jr.—inserted late for defense—made John Farrell look like a genius, making two spectacular catches to help save the win. Could it be that we are witnessing the maturation of two pitchers that might form the core of next year's staff in Webster and Joe Kelly—with the off-season addition of one or two veteran starters? We shall see.
