The Red Sox needed a win on Monday, and they got it in dramatic fashion: New acquisition Travis Shaw hit a walk-off grand slam in the 11th inning to claim an 8-4 victory over the Rangers.

With the bases loaded and nobody out in the bottom of the inning, the game was over as soon as the ball left Shaw’s bat — Hunter Renfroe isn’t speedy, but he would have easily scored if Shaw’s deep fly ball was hauled in.

But the extra distance added to the victory.
