Kyle Schwarber sounds like a guy who is happy to have landed with the Boston Red Sox.
Schwarber was the Sox’s top trade deadline acquisition, and he’s been all he was billed to be. He’s provided some versatility in the field along with his uber-professional at-bats, while also helping guys like Bobby Dalbec refine their game.
The club was rewarded for all that hard work Sunday, when a win over the Washington Nationals, who traded Schwarber to Boston in July, secured the top wild-card spot for the Red Sox. Boston now will host the New York Yankees on Tuesday night in the American League Wild Card Game.
Schwarber tweeted Sunday night: “The boys man! A bunch of grinders!Fought through adversity! We made it now anything happens! Can’t put in words how happy I am to be apart of this! #LFG @RedSox”
Schwarber figures to bat second and play first base in Tuesday’s game, but that all still is to be determined.
First pitch Tuesday is set for 8:08 p.m. ET on ESPN, but NESN will carry a full hour of pregame and postgame coverage.
