A flash of ‘flair for the dramatic’

Red Sox win, but the Rockies’ first baseman steals the show
Todd Helton got a lot of love from the Coors Field faithful in his final home game Wednesday night against the Boston Red Sox in Denver. He rewarded them with a show of his own, too. Helton homered, doubled and drove in three runs. “Certain players have a flair for the dramatic, and seemingly that was one (Wednesday night),” Red Sox manager John Farrell said.
“I hoped I would go out and play well,” said Todd Helton, who’s retiring after 17 years with the Colorado Rockies. “But there was so much going on before the game. My expectations weren’t that high. ... To be able to go out and play and be productive, that means a lot to me.”
