Red Sox Win In a Walk-Off 3-2
The Boston Red Sox have won 4 games in a row thanks to a Mitch Moreland walk-off home run in the bottom of the 11th inning on Friday, August 4th, giving the Red Sox a 3-2 win over the Chicago White Sox. It was John Farrell's 400th win as a Red Sox manager.
Moreland had come in as a replacement for Hanley Ramirez who started the game at 1st base and then left because of oblique muscle soreness.
Eduardo Nunez continued to hit for the Red Sox going 2-5 with a game tying home run in the 6th inning. It was his 7th homer of the season and 3rd with the Red Sox.
Rafael Devers was 1-4 singling to lead off the 5th inning. That hit extended his hitting streak to 8 games and his on-base streak to 9 games, so he's reached base in every game he's played in!
Eduardo Rodriguez threw 6 innings , allowing 4 hits, and 2 runs. He struck out 5 and walked 2.
Heath Hembree pitched the 11th inning picking up the win. He's now 2-3 on the season.
With the New York Yankees loss to Cleveland, the Red Sox are now 3.0 games ahead, in 1st place.
The Red Sox and White Sox will play Saturday night in the 3rd game of the 4 game series. Drew Pomeranz is scheduled to pitch for Boston with the pregame starting at 6:25 and 1st pitch at 7:10 on AM 1370 WDEA.
