Video: Stephen Drew's game-winning homer

Thomas Campbell-USA TODAY Sports

The Red Sox were down in the top of the ninth, but Stephen Drew fixed that with one swing.

Saying Stephen Drew has been on fire for the Red Sox since Jose Iglesias was traded does not do his performance justice. He's hit .464/.579/.714 since July 31, with a pair of homers, nine walks, and seven runs batted in. One of those homers, and three of the RBI, came in one swing against the Astros on Wednesday night to put the Red Sox up 7-5 in the ninth inning:

Drew hit it off of former Red Sox farmhand Josh Fields, whom the Astros selected from Boston in this past off-season's Rule 5 draft. The Red Sox have plenty of relief options around even without Fields, and hey, now they have a game-winning hit off of him to boot. Funny how things just happen to work out like that sometimes, despite 2012's protestations that no, things never work out like that sometimes.

This bomb wrapped up the season series for Boston against Houston, with the Sox taking six of the seven contests. If you're looking for more than that, you're just greedy.
