John Farrell Praises Sam Travis, Deven Marrero For Rising To Occasion

Sam Travis and Deven Marrero didn’t have much time to prepare for the Boston Red Sox’s game against the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday.

Both youngsters immediately were placed in the starting lineup after being called up from Triple-A Pawtucket, and they made their starts count. Travis and Marrero combined to go 3-for-7 with two RBIs and three runs scored in Boston’s 8-3 victory.

After the game, Red Sox manager John Farrell praised the rookies for providing the team with a lift, especially considering the unusual circumstances.
