Ryan Lavarnway Says Weight Hasn’t Been Lifted Off Red Sox’ Shoulders Yet, Ready to Do What It Takes to Earn Playoff Berth


Ryan Lavarnway made his first start behind the plate on Tuesday night in Baltimore. Yet he treated the big game as if he was a seasoned veteran.

Lavarnway blasted two home runs to help lead the Sox to an 8-7 victory and keep them deadlocked atop the AL wild-card race with the Tampa Bay Rays. The two bombs were the first of his career, and he drove in four RBIs in total.

After the game, Lavarnway spoke with NESN's Heidi Watney about his at-bats, as well as a crucial defensive play he made late in the game on what looked like a swinging bunt. He also talked about how important it is for the Sox to come out and keep fighting on Thursday night in the season finale.
