Even though the Red Sox dropped the first game of their final series of the season to the New York Yankees 11-6, there was one bright spot for Boston on the night.
In the bottom of the sixth inning, Steve Pearce uncorked a grand slam off J.A. Happ into the Green Monster seats to make it 8-4 in favor of New York. Pearce has fared well against Happ in his career, as the grand slam marked the sixth round-tripper the infielder has hit off the pitcher.
Pearce talked after the game about his success against the left-hander, noting it’s always a battle between the two. To hear Pearce’s comments, check out the “NESN Sports Today” video above, presented by People’s United Bank.
