Rays Pound Red Sox 10-5

The Tampa Bay Rays doubled up the Boston Red Sox Friday night, April 14th, beating the Red Sox 10-5. The loss dropped the Red Sox to .500 on the season with a 5-5 record.

Rick Porcello, the reigning Cy Young Award winner just didn’t have it Friday night. He lasted only 4.1 innings allowing 8 hits, but 4 of those hits were homers. He struck out 5, walking 2 and gave up 8 runs all earned. He had finished 5.0 inning in his previous 43 straight starts for the Red Sox, the 3rd longest streak for a Red Sox pitcher since 1920, but that came to a crashing halt Friday.

Mookie Betts was 4-5 with a double for the Red Sox. Dustin Pedroia was 2-4 with a ground rule double for the Red Sox. He has reached base for the 10th straight game to begin the season.  Xander Bogaerts was 3-4 with a walk. Friday night was his 3rd straight multi0hit night. Andrew Benintendi was 2-4 with a double. He, like Pedroia, has reached base in each of the Red Sox’s first 10 games.

The Boston Red Sox will send Chris Sale to the mound on Jackie Robinson Day. All of Major League Baseball will be wearing number 42 to honor the Hall of Famer. The pregame on Saturday starts at 3:20 with the 1st pitch at 4:05 on AM 1370 WDEA.
