Who’s up today: Oliver di Risi Pena 16, of Rochester, N.Y., scores the deciding run in a walkoff win for Lindos Suenos, a team of American teenagers, against a Dominican team at the Red Sox Academy in El Toro de Guerra, Dominican Republic, July 26, 2013.

Risi Pena: “We were down, 9-4, in the bottom of the [last] inning when we rallied. On this play, I was on second base and somebody hit a line drive to right field and I scored from second base and that was the winning run. I knew I was going to score. I looked back at the ball and I knew it was opposite field and I could score. The coach waved me in and I just kept running and running. It was amazing. I can’t describe it. It was a different feeling then I’ve ever had before because I’ve never been in a walkoff before. It was really cool, a great feeling. I knew they were going to start going on top of me. That felt great. Kids from the US and kids from the Dominican Republic. To be a part of the Red Sox organization with Lindos Suenos felt great. It means beautiful dreams, and that’s what I’m going to have tonight.”
