Game 147 - Sox vs. Athletics (W 3-2)

So, let me get this straight: They intentionally walk Papi to load the bases and then they hit Manny with a pitch? Did we actually win a game that ended in this way? Doesn’t this seem like just the sort of game that we would lose a couple of years ago?

I know that doesn’t mean much, and that our lead in the East is still just a paltry 1.5 games, but I like the idea that every once in a while we’re coming out on top in some of these ridiculous situations.
