#RedSox Game Summary (May 11) Sure Betts

#RedSox Game Summary (May 11) Sure Betts. Mookie Betts accounted for all four Red Sox runs today, carrying a team that has struggled offensively with Hanley Ramirez on the DL. He led off the game with a double off Milwaukee starter Jimmy Nelson, moved to 2nd on a Dustin Pedroia sacrifice bunt, and scored on a fielding error by Brewers’ first baseman Jesus Aguilar. Although the Sox threatened in a few situations (they left 9 on base and went 2-for-9 with runners in scoring position, including on a double by Pedey in the 8th), they did not score again until the 9th, when Mookie launched a 3 run no-doubter into the left field stands. Eduardo Rodriguez had a good game, though he got a no-decision after the Brewers tied the score at 1 off a double by Jonathan Villar in the 6th. Eduardo went 6 innings, giving up 1 run on 3 hits and no walks, with 5 Ks. The only other extra base hit he allowed was to Keon Broxton in the 1st. Our old friend Travis Shaw also knocked a double off Joe Kelly in the 7th. Craig Kimbrel polished off the Brewers with a series of 5 consecutive strikeouts to pick up the win. Mookie had an excellent series, going 7-for-11 in the 3 games. Boston beat Milwaukee, 4-1 in interleague play, at Miller Park. Record: 18-16. Game 34/128.
