Big Papi Cranks Big HR, Sox Win [VIDEO]
David Oritz blasted home run #27 in the sixth inning and two batters later Jackie Bradley Jr. followed with a solo shot. It all spelled a 3-2 for the Red Sox in Cleveland.
The Monday matinee was a makeup game from way back on April 7th when it was too cold and snowy to play.
Drew Pomeranz got his first win in a Sox uniform, going 7.2 innings and giving up just two runs on five hits and two walks. He struck out six.
Craig Kimbrel picked up his 20th save, stranding the tying and winning runs on base in the the ninth inning.
The Sox are 65-52 and take a four game winning streak to Baltimore. They play the Orioles Tuesday and Wednesday nights with the pregame starting at 6:20 and 1st pitch at 7:05 on AM 1370 WDEA.
