For the final game of the 2021 minor-league season, Worcester did what we were all hoping the Red Sox would do. They jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, and ended up with a blowout. (Though half of the runs were in the ninth.) They went with a well-rounded attack to end the season, with 16 hits coming for the whole team, none of which left the yard. In fact, no one even had multiple extra-base hits. That said, it was nice to see a three-hit day for Duran to bring things full circle in a way. Meanwhile, the pitching was also a story more of the overall effort than anyone in particular. Seabold was able to keep runs off the board, though the performance seems to have been more bend-but-don’t-break than anything else. But the four relievers were great, and that was enough. What a way to end the year.
Player of the Day: Jack López
