Xander Bogaerts' RBI single into shallow right field in the bottom of the 9th inning drove in Mike Napoli as the Red Sox notched their first walk-off win of the 2015 season beating the Orioles 3-2 at Fenway Park.

The Orioles took a 2-0 lead with single runs in the 4th and 5th innings off Red Sox starter Joe Kelly. Boston tied the game in the bottom of the 5th on Ryan Hanigan's (pictured) 2-run homer, his first in a Red Sox uniform.
Koji Uehara got the win in relief with a 1-2-3 9th inning featuring a pair of strikeouts. Kelly went 5.2 innings allowing both Baltimore runs on 4 hits and a pair of walks while striking out 3.
Baltimore starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez no-hit the Red Sox through 3.2 innings before being thrown out of the game for drilling Boston 3rd baseman Pablo Sandoval with a pitch deemed to be too close to Sandoval's head.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
