Koji Uehara is relieved after ALCS Game 5 saveKoji Uehara retired the final five Detroit batters to clinch Boston’s 4-3 win in Game 5 of the American League Championship. It was the third time this postseason that Uehara had to work 1+ innings and closing out the Tigers was especially important because the top of the Tigers’ lineup was looming. So many emotions. So much relief. Someone needed to hold Koji Uehara. Hold him tight and never let go. Thank you, David Ross.
