#RedSox Game Summary (May 1) Mentally Absent

#RedSox Game Summary (May 1) Mentally absent. Today, the Red Sox committed 4 errors in one game. Four. Heath Hembree, Andrew Benintendi, and Marco Hernandez (twice) on on today’s roll of shame. Not only that, but a Sox rally in the 8th was undermined when Hanley Ramirez hit what he was sure was a double, and beat a path to 2nd base, not noticing that Benintendi was there. Andrew, who had vacated that base and then attenpted to return to it, was out. A bone-headed moment. Another fairly decent start for Rick Porcello was ruined in the 8th when, with Hembree pitching, two successive errors following a walk provided the Orioles a run, and left 2 on base who shouldn’t have been. Both scored; one on a Mark Trumbo single, the other on a sac fly. The other Baltimore runs came when Caleb Joseph doubled in a run in the 5th, and Manny Machado slammed a solo dinger to left in the 6th. Orioles starter Dylan Bundy kept the Sox off the scoreboard until the 8th inning, when he surrendered a double to Marco Hernandez, and two successive hits for Boston’s first run of the game. The Sox got their second run off Hanley’s messed up hit. For Baltimore, Trumbo also doubled, and for Boston, Xander Bogaerts did as well. Baltimore beat Boston, 5-2, at Fenway Park. Record: 13-12. Game 25/137.
