A couple of other notes: Conor Gillapsie's game winning homer was his 11th home run this year. The only MLB rookies with more homers? Evan Gattis with 15, Jedd Gyorko with 14 and Yasiel Puig with 12. Gillaspie's offensive numbers are very comparable to those of Nolan Arenado of Colorado although, to be fair, Arenado might already be the best defensive 3B in baseball. Gillaspie is a good fielder but not as good as Arenado.
And Jake Petricka got the win. It is good to see the Sox turning the page and moving forward.
