#Red Sox Game Summary (May 6) Boom! Boom! Boom!

#RedSox Game Summary (May 6) Boom! Boom! Boom! Red Sox bats finally exploded for a hailstorm of runs today against the Twins. The fun came in the 2nd inning, starting with a solo blast by Chris Young, and just rolled on from there. Before the inning was over, the Sox had 6 more hits, including doubles by Dustin Pedroia, Andrew Benintendi, and Mitch Moreland, and a walk, for a total of 8 runs, and all coming with 2 out. Interestingly enough, because of an error, all but Young’s homer were unearned by Twins starter Nick Tepesch. Young hit his second dinger of the game in the 5th. The Sox picked up another run in the 7th on a succession of singles, and Sandy Leon added one more solo four-bagger in the 9th, just for emphasis. Minnesota score one run on a Robbie Grossman homer off Sox starter Rick Porcello off one of his few mistakes in the game. Rick finished with just the 1 run over 7 innings on 7 hits and no walks, with 6 Ks. Xander Bogaerts also doubled in the game, off our old friend Craig Breslow. Maybe this is the spark they need to have more confidence at the plate. Boston beat Minnesota, 11-1, at Target Field. Record: 16-14. Game 30/132.
