FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Biggest man on campus after Tuesday's double-header against Northeastern and Boston College?
That would be Northeastern right-hander Aaron Civale, a sophomore from East Windsor, Conn., who struck out David Ortiz and Hanley Ramirez in succession in the first, then struck out Mike Napoli and Xander Bogaerts in the second.
“He didn’t back away from the names in the box or the name on the jersey," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. “He had a good late cutter, attacked the strike zone. From a sheer baseball standpoint, it was good to see."
