Kalish happy to help Sox with pinch-hit in 10th

Ryan Kalish wasn't in the starting lineup, but he played a huge role in the comeback win.

Kalish pinch-hit for Brent Lillibridge in the top of the 10th and blasted a double to right. From there, he took third on a Dustin Pedroia's single and scored on David Ortiz's sacrifice fly.

"I can't be more happy to be a part of this win," said Kalish. "Obviously, they were playing us tight and there weren't a lot of runs scored in this series. It was just huge to help out."

As a young player, Kalish doesn't have a lot of pinch-hitting experience, but he likes the challenge those situations present.

"I don't really mind it," he said. "It's just another (situation) where you can show your value, your use. You go up there and just try to have something happen. You just keep it light. There's pressure, but then again, there's really none because you haven't been in the game the whole time. You're just up there trying to put a good swing on something.

"I kind of find it fun."

Matched against Brandon League, Kalish was trying to "stay aggressive, see a good pitch early -- because they're trying to get ahead. They're going to put something over the plate and I was just ready for it."

Red Sox outfield "Win, Dance, Repeat" celebration finds its way on MLB the Show 17

Mooke Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr. and a mix of Andrew Benintendi, Brock Holt, Blake Swihart and Chris Young brought postgame celebrations to a new level last season.

Most Sox fans are familiar with the outfield victory "Win, Dance, Repeat" where the trio would dance and pretend to photograph the game's best player between them. The celebration ended with a pose at first, but as seen the MLB the Show 17's freshly released trailer, a few more wrinkes were added in.

In fact, here's a taste of the celebrations and what else to expect from Playstation's 2017 MLB game:

Report: Red Sox DH target Beltran agrees to 1-year deal with Astros

Report: Red Sox DH target Beltran agrees to 1-year deal with Astros

Carlos Beltran, the 39-year-old switch hitter who was a potential target of the Red Sox as a DH, agreed to a free-agent deal with the Houston Astros, ESPN's Buster Olney reported.

FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal reports that it's a one-year, $16 million deal. 

Beltran played for the Astros in 2004. He was dealt from the New York Yankees to the Texas Rangers at the July 31 trading deadline last season. He totaled 35 homers, 101 RBI and hit .295 in 2016. 

The Red Sox, looking to fill the void left by David Ortiz's retirement, will be looking for a DH at the Winter Meetings that begin next week. One possibility is the return of Mike Napoli, who played for the A.L. champion Cleveland Indians last season.
