Cody Ross had to know it was coming, and all things considered, he probably still didn't mind.
In hindsight, however, Ross learned a thing or two about what the celebration for a walk-off home run feels like, especially when Nick Punto is involved.
Ross continued his torrid hitting on Thursday night when he delivered a three-run walk-off home run to give the Red Sox a 3-1 win over the White Sox.
Upon reaching home plate, his Red Sox teammates were waiting to inflict some pain. The celebration got a little crazy, with Powerade flying and "The Shredder" doing what he does best.
See the video below to hear Ross explain it all.
