ONWARD VASQUEZ SOLDIERS – 50 2017 WALKOFF HRS

The way the Red Sox and Indians were battling last night it was hard to believe that either of these two teams were heading to the postseason, but one or both look like they are headed that way. In a see-saw game that gave true meaning to term “last licks,” Boston prevailed when Christian Vazquez hit a two-run 9th inning walk off homer.
