#RedSox Game Summary (May 10) Multiple Points of Failure

#RedSox Game Summary (May 10) Multiple points of failure. Although the Milwaukee Brewers had a good game, they were aided mightily by Red Sox failings. After a bad 1st inning, Sox starter Kyle Kendrick held his own until the 5th, when it all came unraveled. Brewers scoring efforts are aided mightily by two throwing errors on the part of the usually reliable catcher, Christian Vazquez. And then there was the fact that the Sox left 9 men on base. The fielding seemed a little off as well. The Brewers started the scoring with a walk and series of 3 hits for 2 runs in the 1st. Boston came right back with a Jackie Bradley, Jr. homer in the 2nd, and a double by Vazquez in the 4th; he scored on a Mookie Betts single. Then in the 5th, the wheels came off the wagon as a pair of back-to-back doubles by Keon Braxton and Eric Thames was followed by a series of singles to score 4 runs. In the 6th, Broxton singled, moved to third on a single, and scored when Vazquez made a bad throw to 2nd to thwart a steal attempt. In the 8th, the Sox loaded the bases on a walk and 2 singles, but Vazquez hit into a double play, allowing just 1 run to score. In the 9th, Mookie Betts walked, reached 3rd on a Dustin Pedroia single, and scored on a fielder’s choice. That was it. Game over. In addition to Vazquez, Xander Bogaerts and Dustin Pedroia also doubled, but failed to score. The Sox went 11-for-34, which isn’t bad, but scored just 4 runs. Milwaukee beat Boston, 7-4 in interleague play, at Miller Park. Record: 17-16. Game 33/129.
