Ross will keep catching duties for Game 6

BOSTON -- For a while this postseason, it was a daily decision for manager John Farrell of who to play behind the plate: Jarrod Saltalamacchia or David Ross.

However, Ross has clearly emerged as the hot hand, and Game 6 will mark his third consecutive start.

"He's had some key hits," said first baseman Mike Napoli. "We're all excited for him. We're glad he's doing it. Hopefully he keeps doing it."

The Red Sox are 3-0 in this World Series in games that Ross has started.

"First of all, David has given us a spark offensively out of the position, and that's not to be disrespectful to Salty in any way," said Farrell. "We've had to try to jump-start a couple of different positions from an offensive standpoint. And at the same time, David has done a great job with running the game from a game-calling perspective. And so that's the thrust of him being back behind the plate tomorrow."
