GET YA BROOMS READY!! SWEEP SWEEP IN EXTRAS
Two innings of a pitchers duel, Price lost the zone a bit allowing two baserunners to start the third. Battling back by striking out the next two but he does allow them to score when he lost the battle to Robertson allowing a double. Getting one of those back in the fourth when MItchy four bags lifted off sending a BULLET into the right field bleachers!
The sixth inning was very interesting as Glasnow got benny out to start the inning, but he allows an 0-2 single to Mookie, and got pulled. Glasnow was only at 76 pitches, as to the interesting move. The Rays brought in Kolareck for one batter who walked Pearce pinch hitting for Pearce, and then JD walked when Chaz Roe came into the game. With the bases juiced, Bogaerts lined a first pitch fastball into right center for 2 RBI and the lead! 3-2 Red Sox! Chavis grounded into a double play to end the threat though.
The Rays did tie up the ball game on a Pham dinger in the eighth which sends this game to extras. Nothing in the tenth but in the eleventh Devers hit a blooper to center field, and Chavis walked which prompted JBJ to drop down (a rather impressive) bunt moving both up a base. Vazquez then hits a ball to deep center for the sac fly scoring the winning run!
Final Score: 4-3 RED SOX
- SWEEP getting back to only 5 games back of first place, and 2.5 games back of the Yankees!
- Great outing for Price: 5 IP, 10 Ks and only allowed those two runs on the Robertson double
- After exiting the game early on Saturday with back spasms, Mitch Moreland launched his 7th home run of year last night, clearly feeling better
- Barnes with another homer allowed which forced the need to go to 11 innings for the win
