Jake Diekman the hero the Red Sox needed in win

The Red Sox found a hero on Sunday night, and it made the entire weekend worth it.

Jake Diekman, a 35-year-old lefty who might’ve been an under-the-radar signing during spring training, was the star of the show.

It was like pulling teeth watching the Sox figure out how their roster is going to work this weekend. They have a weird platoon in right field.

They’re trying to figure out how many outs they can get from their starting pitchers.

And  it looks like they have no idea what they’re doing with their bullpen.

But on Sunday, manager Alex Cora found a way to make it all work. And with the heart of

the Yankees’ lineup due up in the ninth, he found the hero he needed.
