The Red Sox were the underdogs heading into Tuesday’s Wild Card Game at Fenway, despite hosting the game, and they needed to play pretty much perfectly to win. Their execution was just that: Perfect. (Dan Shaughnessy; Boston Globe)

Fenway was absolutely electric for this game as well, and we really got to feel the pulse of the postseason again for the first time in a couple of years. (Jeff Passan; ESPN)

We got a great moment at Fenway before this game even started, as Jerry Remy came out after missing much of the season dealing with health issues, throwing the first pitch. (Jake Levin; NBC Sports Boston)
