The Red Sox have 11 walk-off wins this season.

Unlike the days when Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz, and the 'big boppers' were getting the clutch hits, the 'lunch-pail crew' have been stepping it up when the lights are the brightest.

With the Sox looking so good, is Ben Cherington getting enough credit? The UNO's Sports Tonight Crew chimed in.

"No. But some of that is by design.  He's a very under the radar guy, he doesn't bring attention to himself, he's not really available that much.  Much less of a rockstar than Theo." said Dan Shaughnessy, "Very quiet, subtle stuff in the offseason.  They didn't go for the big splash, most of it is all working out right now.

"This is on him. He got to have his own manager. He got to have his team, and it's looking good."
