Red Sox: Watch Travis Shaw hit a walk-off grand slam against the Rangers (Video)

Just after closer Matt Barnes blew the save against the lowly Texas Rangers, recent acquisition Travis Shaw more than made up for it with a walk-off grand slam in the tenth.

Barnes was unable to secure the save, marking yet another tough performance in the month of August for a player the Red Sox rely on quite a bit.

Yet, one Chaim Bloom mistake (Barnes’ extension) was redeemed by a success story in Shaw, who was claimed off waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers just a few days ago.

It’s a win against the lowly Rangers, but the Red Sox will take it. It’s been a brutal stretch for Boston as they try to hold on to the second American League Wild Card spot, fighting off the Oakland Athletics.

Red Sox: Will Alex Cora make a change at closer?

Barnes’ August ERA suggests a change could be coming — or at the very least a break from such a strenuous role as the team flirts with other options.

The likes of Adam Ottavino, Garrett Whitlock and Hirokazu Sawamura are the ideal next man up in the bullpen if Cora opts to go that route. If not, he’ll be asking Barnes to solve his issues in the middle of a pennant race.
