One WP, One More Sox Win [VIDEO]
A wild pitch never looked so good as it did last night in the 11th inning. With Mitch Moreland at the bat and Jackie Bradley Jr. at third base, Baltimore pitcher Brad Brach threw a pitch in the dirt, getting away from the catcher. In comes JBJ to score the only run of the game and the Red Sox came away with the 1-0 win.
24 hours after the two teams combined for 18 runs, neither team could do anything on offense on Tuesday night. The extra inning win ties a Boston franchise record (15) set in 1943. The Sox are 15-3 in extra innings games.
The three game lead over New York stands as the Yankees win too. The Sox are a season-best 23 games over 500 at 87-64.
11 games remain on the schedule and the magic number to clinch the AL East is 9. Chris Sale pitches in the series finale in Baltimore tonight. The pregame starts at 6:25 with the 1st pitch at 7:10 on AM 1370 WDEA.
