#RedSox Game Summary (May 9) At Least Someone Showed Up for Work Today

#RedSox Game Summary (May 9) Well, at least someone showed up for work today. Mookie Betts went 4-for-4 with a walk. He started the game with a solo home run, and also knocked 2 doubles in the game. The problem for the Sox was that the Brewers were able to totally overwhelm Boston starter Drew Pomeranz in the first inning, and kept the pressure on for the whole game. In the bottom of the 1st, Eric Thames slammed a 2 run dinger. After a Ryan Braun double, and another hit, Keon Braxton homered, driving in 3 more runs. In the 4th, Keon Braxton singled, stole 2nd, and advanced to 3rd on a bad throw from catcher Sandy Leon. He then scored on a single by Orlando Arcia. In the 5th, a series of RBI doubles by Mookie Betts, Dustin Pedroia, and Andrew Benintendi made the score 6-4, and gave Sox fans hope. But in the 6th, a RBI single by Arcia and a 2 RBI double by Nick Franklin gave the Brewers all three runs back. In the 7th, a 2 RBI triple by Braxton closed the door on any chance of a Boston comeback. A disappointing performance for Pomeranz and the bullpen; let’s put it behind us. Milwaukee beat Boston, 11-7 in interleague play, at Miller Park. Record: 17-15. Game 32/130.
