#RedSox Game Summary (April 16) Easter Hit Parade

#RedSox Game Summary (April 16) Easter hit parade. The Red Sox celebrated the day with a series of timely hits, and despite being behind for most of the game ended up on top. They notched 17 hits altogether, with Andrew Benintendi going 3-for-5 with two doubles, Mookie Betts going 3-for-4, also with a double, Christian Vazquez also going 3-for-4 with a double, and everyone else in the starting lineup getting at least one hit except for Dustin Pedroia. Even Pablo Sandoval got in on the action, and his hit was a home run. This was a rough day for Tampa Bay starter Alex Cobb, who gave up 4 runs over 5 innings, and for Danny Farquhar, who was charged with 2 runs over just 1 1/3rd inning for the loss. Drew Pomeranz struggled in the first inning, walking two and giving up a triple to Brad Miller for a quick 2 runs. He seemed to settle down somewhat after that, but did give up a solo jack to Corey Dickerson in the 4th. After another one-run dinger by Tim Beckham in the 5th, followed by a single, he was done for the day. Joe Kelly came on to calm things down, and got the win. This was another outstanding day for the Boston bullpen. The winning run came in the 7th on singles by Benintendi and Betts, followed by a walk to Hanley and a Mitch Moreland single that drove in 2. Unfortunately, Hanley drew up just past second clutching his leg, and had to leave the game with a strained hamstring. Let’s hope it’s not too serious. Boston beat Tampa Bay, 7-5, at Fenway Park. Record: 7-5. Game 12/150.
