The Red Sox have closed games by committee so far this season, and Boston turned to Josh Smith on Thursday night to continue that trend.
Smith previously had never recorded a save during his big league career, but the 31-year-old closed the door in Boston’s comeback win over the Texas Rangers at Fenway Park. The right-hander said his adrenaline was on another level in the ninth, and added that he enjoyed the experience.
For everything Smith said, check out the “Red Sox First Pitch” video above, presented by Mens Wearhouse.
