Benintendi Blast Keys Sox Win [VIDEO]
One throwing error led to five Red Sox runs in the 6th inning and that was more than enough for Clay Buchholz and company. A 5-1 win over the Orioles reduces the magic number to clinch down to six.
In that 6th inning with Baltimore ahead 1-0, Chris Davis made a throwing error at first base leading to two Sox runs.
One pitch later, rookie Andrew Benintendi ripped a 3-run home run. Just like that it was 5-1 Sox.
Clay Buchholz pitched seven innings of one run, three hit ball. The bullpen did the rest.
The Sox have won seven in a row and 10 out of 13, all against the AL East.
With a record of 88-64, the Sox are a season-high 24 games over .500 and with Toronto losing in extra innings the magic number to clinch is down to six.
The Boston Red Sox play the Baltimore Orioles in the final game of the 4 game series on Thursday night with the pregame starting at 6:20 PM and 1st pitch at 7:05 on AM 1370 WDEA.
