Red Sox Win 8th in a Row Beat Phillies 7-4 Saturday
Don't look now but the Boston Red Sox haven't lost in the month of May, and won their 8th game in a row Saturday night, beating the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4.
Boston's bats blasted 10 hits and Corey Kluber went 5.0 innings to pick up his 2nd win of the season. Kluber (2-4) allowed 7 hits and 3 runs, striking out 1. He didn't walk a batter.
Matt Schreiber, Brennan Bernadino, Josh Winskowski and Kenley Jansen combined to hold the Phillies to just 3 hits and 1 run (charged to Bernadino) in 4 innings. They struck out 3, but more importantly didn't walk a batter.
Jansen picked up the save, his 8th of the season, and career save number 399!
Masataka Yoshida had a planned day-off, and his hitting streak is still alive at 15 games.
Down in Worcester, James Paxton completed his minor league rehab start and will travel with the big-league team, and be activated at some point in the coming days.
