What Alex Cora Believes Was ‘Play Of The Game’ In Red Sox’s Win Over Tigers

There was a myriad of highlights for the Boston Red Sox in their 9-1 win over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday at Comerica Park, but one stood out for manager Alex Cora.

Aside from Chris Sale’s dominance and Jackie Bradley Jr.’s three-run home run, Cora identified Xander Bogaerts stretching a single into a double in the second inning as “the play of the game.” Bogaerts’ two-bagger ignited an offensive outburst for the Red Sox, who have won four of their last five and 14 of their last 16.

To hear from Cora, as well as JBJ, check out the video above from “NESN Sports Today,” presented by People’s United Bank.
