Nathan Eovaldi was an absolute force for the Boston Red Sox during the World Series.
The right-hander tossed 97 pitches in relief during the Red Sox’s Game 3, 18-inning marathon loss, and appeared in relief in both Games 1 and 2. He even told manager Alex Cora he was ready to go for Games 4 and 5 if the team needed him.
The Red Sox got by without Eovaldi in Game 5 thanks to some solid pitching from David Price and Chris Sale to help Boston earn its fourth World Series title since 2004.
After the game, Eovaldi caught up with NESN’s Guerin Austin to talk about winning it all and how it felt to have his teammates be inspired by his performances. To hear from Eovaldi, check out the “Red Sox Final” video above, presented by Rodenhiser Heating & Cooling.
