The Red Sox offense was the big story in Saturday’s Game Two win, most notably with the two early grand slams, but perhaps the biggest story in terms of the series was the respective pitching performances.

Kiké Hernández didn’t join the grand slam barrage, but he contributed a homer of his own as he stays red-hot. (Alexandra Francisco; NESN)

That experience in October and proven ability to perform on this stage is yet another reason the Hernández signing is a clear win. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald)
