#RedSox Game Summary (April 17) Comeback Kids

#RedSox Game Summary (April 17) Comeback kids. Once again, the Red Sox came back from behind to win. This time, Steven Wright struggled in the first inning, giving up 2 runs on a series of three consecutive singles and two fielder’s choices. He settled down after that, holding the Rays at bay until the 7th, when Tim Beckham’s single meant the end of his day. Beckham later advanced to third on a Corey Dickerson double and scored on a single to make Wright’s third earned run. The Sox started the scoring early with a series of singles off Tampa Bay starter Blake Snell. They did their real damage in the 2nd with 2 out to overcome a 2-1 deficit. First, Sandy Leon singled. Then, Marco Hernandez reached on an error, and Dustin Pedroia walked. Andrew Benintendi came up with the bases loaded and did what he does; laced a single to center scoring two runs (Hernandez just barely beat the tag). Mookie Betts drove in the 4th and winning run with another single. Betts also doubled in the 3rd. The Rays also notched doubles by Derek Norris, Brad Miller, Rickie Weeks, Jr., and Corey Dickerson, but did not score those times. Boston beat Tampa Bay, 4-3, at Fenway Park. Record: 8-5. Game 13/149.

    I think it has been 123 at bats since Mookie struck out. Pretty amazing!
