#RedSox Game Summary (May 4) A Battle of Unknowns

#RedSox Game Summary (May 4) A battle of unknowns. Tyler Wilson vs. Kyle Kendrick. What? Baltimore’s Wilson pitched in his first major league start tonight, and Boston’s Kendrick has not had a start since 2015. The O’s got the better of this deal. Kendrick held Baltimore to just 1 run in the first 3 innings, and the one run came in the 3rd when Seth Smith singled, advanced to 2nd on another hit, reached 3rd on a force play, then stole home. Meanwhile, the Sox scored 2 in the first on a series of singles by Mookie Betts, Hanley Ramirez, and Xander Bogaerts. In the 3rd, the Sox got back the run at the top of the inning with a solo blast over the Monster by Dustin Pedroia (La Luna!), and they seemed to be cruising. But then came the bottom of the 4th, when Kendrick blew up. After a couple of singles and a walk to load the bases, Seth Smith doubled in 2, and Manny Machado homered to score another 3, and the game was already out of hand. In the 5th, the Orioles put an exclamation point on the thing by a succession of 4 singles that scored 2 more runs. With the pitching staff in a state of flux, just look past this one, Red Sox fans. By the way, some more bad news: Steven Wright is out for the season due to a knee operation. Let’s hope David Price comes back soon, and is his old self. Baltimore beat Boston, 8-3, at Fenway Park. Record: 15-13. Game 28/134.
