That is how you play catcher.
A night after Francisco Cervelli drew attention for the wrong reasons, Jason Varitek was in full classy mode while he doubled, homered and drove in three runs to guarantee the Red Sox first place in the AL East for a little while longer.
The Captain's excuse-me double in the sixth inning tied the game and his monster of a home run in the eighth sealed the deal as the Red Sox out-slugged the Yankees 9-5.
Jacoby Ellsbury and David Ortiz also homered, but that's not what we're focusing on after this one.
NESN Nation's Fitzy is fired up with 'Tek showing some pop and for that he's awarding Varitek the "All Class, No Clap" player of the game award. You didn't see any showboating from the captain after this one. Just a man going about his business.
