Grand Slam Walk-Off! Red Sox Win 6-2 [VIDEO]
The Boston Red Sox won their major league leading 67th game of the season, as Xander Bogaerts hit a grand slam walk-off home run and the Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday afternoon 6-2
Bogaert's 4th career grand slam marked the Red Sox's first walk-off grand slam since Rico Brogna did it on August 14, 2000 and was the Red Sox's 9th grand slam in the 2018 season, their most since hitting 9 in 2013.
Bogaerts finished 2-5 with a double and grand slam.
Eduardo Rodriguez was pitching brilliantly, but was forced to leave the game in the 6th inning, after spraining his right ankle in a collision at 1st base. He ended up allowing 4 hits, and striking out 5. The Sox are now 16-3 in Rodriguez's starts this year.
Mookie Betts was 3-4 with a walk. JD Martinez was 1-4 with a homer, his major league leading 29th.
The Boston Red Sox are now 4 games ahead of the New York Yankees, pending the Yankees game against Cleveland on Saturday night.
The Red Sox will play their final game prior to the All-Star break on Sunday against the Blue Jays. Brian Johnson is expected to come off the disabled list to start for the Red Sox with the pregame starting at 12:20 and 1st pitch at 1:05 on AM 1370 WDEA.
