Hometown Kid Comes Through
A feel-good game at Fenway tonight, as the Sox pull it out 3-2 in the 10th inning on a walk-off home run from Carlos Pena, the former Northeastern star from Haverhill. Pena launched a rocket about 15 rows up in right field, triggering a much-needed celebration for Sox fans who have been through the wringer over the last couple of weeks. Must have been awfully sweet for Pena, too, who seems like a genuinely nice guy.
