It's fair to assume that after striking out four straight Rays on Tuesday night, and picking up the win thanks to an excellent relief appearance that spanned parts of three innings in the contest that clinched the American League Division Series, Craig Breslow picked up some new fans among Red Sox Nation.

But the kids at the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center were already fully aboard the left-hander's bandwagon. Founder of the Strike 3 Foundation, Breslow has made it his mission to raise awareness, support, and funding for pediatric cancer research, becoming a regular visitor to the hospital, and so after he helped pitched the Sox into the AL Championship Series his pals over there wanted to pass along their congratulations. Have a look:

His longtime advocacy for the cause earned him a nomination as this season's Red Sox candidate for Major League Baseball's Roberto Clemente Award -- which went to Boston's Tim Wakefield and David Ortiz in 2010 and 2011, and annually honors the player who best represents baseball on and off the field -- Breslow could potentially collect that award before a World Series game he's playing in. And now it appears as though he's even more inspired to make that happen.
