John Farrell Calls 11th Walk Off ‘Magical’

BOSTON — After the Boston Red Sox mounted their 11th walk-off win of the 2013 season Thursday night at Fenway Park, manager John Farrell had a simple way to describe the team’s improbable 8-7 triumph over the Seattle Mariners.

“In a word — magical,” Farrell said.

Trailing 7-2 in the bottom of the ninth inning, the Red Sox scored six runs on six hits and two walks while sending 10 batters to the plate. Daniel Nava provided the game-winning hit en route to the club’s third straight win and second walk-off in less than 24 hours.
