Postgame interview with J.D. Drew
Red Sox outfielder talks about his late inning heroics
I guess obviously just kinda go through that last at bat.J.D. DREW: Fastball in. The rest of the pitches were change ups, some pretty good ones. Got in a situation where we pinch ran for Papi and put Coco out there, and I was just trying to square the ball up, get it out there and with his speed he would have been able to score. Got down two strikes and put the barrel to the ball and it was a change up he left it in and squared it up nice enough to get it out of the park so it worked out well. You've faced him three times before that. Anything that you learned during those at bats that helped you out tonight? J.D. DREW: No, I don't think so. I remember facing him once and walking. I think maybe even on four pitches. So that didn't do me a whole lot of good, so just in that situation realizing that he was going to mix his pitches and trying to see the ball well. I'm working on minimal at bats in six weeks and still trying to grind out and get pitches in the zone and see what happened.
