Boston Red Sox Win 10 of their last 11, Marwin Gonzalez Hits Go-Ahead Home Run and Gets Ride in Laundry Cart


The Red Sox keep finding ways to comeback from behind to win.  The latest example was on Saturday when Boston came back to beat the White Sox, 7-4.

Marwin Gonzalez was the hero with a home run to break the tie giving Boston it’s 10th win in 11 games.  At 10-4, the Red Sox own the best record in the American League and second-best in all of baseball behind the Dodgers. 

In the eighth inning of Saturday’s game, Gonzalez hit a solo home run off White Sox reliever Cody Heuer.  Following the home run, Gonzalez got to ride in the home run cart in the dugout. 

The home run laundry cart is becoming a symbol of unity for Boston this season.  The cart, spawned from an idea from Christian Arroyo, Kevin Plawecki and coach Jason Varitek. 

The former World Series champion catcher saw the cart in the dugout one series and wondered why it was there.  The Red Sox decided to take Christian Vazquez for a spin and it caught on.

Gonzalez got his turn in the home run cart and Boston has found something to have fun with at home.  

“I was just trying to have a good at-bat and get a good pitch to hit,” Gonzalez said.  “I’m trying to get on base for my teammates behind me, try to create a rally.”

Following the win, manager Alex Cora said, “Baseball is fun again.  Baseball is fun in Fenway.  I don’t know how many people we had in there, but it was loud.”

Boston debuted their new Nike City Connect jerseys on Saturday.  The blue and yellow themed threads were designed to pay tribute to the Boston Marathon. 

Besides the big home run from Gonzalez,  Andre Bogaerts went 4-for-5 bringing his average to .412 this season.

Every member of the Red Sox roster has contributed to a win this season.  “It was a total team effort,” Cora said.

The Red Sox wins are becoming contagious and a different teammate has contributed in some way this season.  “Every time you win, you have the confidence and everybody's positive,” Gonzalez said.  “Things are easier when you're winning. It's easy to go out there and get things done when everybody's on the same page and everybody's positive.”
