"That was incredible," closer Luke Gregerson said. "He's been doing stuff like that all year. We've brought him in a lot of key situations with guys on base and he either gets out of it or limits the damage, which he did tonight with the bases loaded. At Fenway, fans are screaming, and sometimes you can get a little rattled, and I thought he did a great job of limiting the runners crossing the plate."
Harris struck out Mike Napoli for the first out before Alejandro De Aza plated the tying run on a fielder's choice grounder corralled behind second base by shortstop Carlos Correa. He got Ryan Hanigan to ground out to end the inning for his eighth scoreless outing in his last nine games.
"It could have gotten ugly that inning," manager A.J. Hinch said. "Harris did a good job of controlling damage. It's another situation where he put him in, it's going to take a Houdini act to get out of it."
