#RedSox Game Summary (May 12) A contest of sloppiness. This game featured both fielding blunders, and critical errors on both sides. Rick Porcello had a fair start, but it was ruined by a couple of errors that gave Tampa Bay an ultimately insurmountable advantage. In the 4th inning, the Rays’ Evan Longoria reached on a throwing error by Josh Rutledge, and ultimately scored on a 2 RBI single by Tim Beckham with 2 out, so both runs were unearned. In the 5th, Derek Norris singled and Corey Dickerson drove him in with a double. Then Dickerson scored on Evan Longoria’s 2 RBI homer. In the 7th, the Sox came back on a Chris Young double off Rays starter Alex Cobb, and after Mitch Moreland walked and Rutledge singled to drive in Young, Sandy Leon drove in Moreland and Rutledge with another double. He then scored an a throwing error by Tampa Bay’s Brad Miller that allowed Jackie Bradley, Jr. to reach base. The Sox were almost there, but despite getting 2 on with nobody out in the 8th, they failed to score. The Sox ended up with 2 errors in the game, and despite Tampa Bay’s 3 errors, they prevailed. Tampa Bay beat Boston, 5-4, at Fenway Park. Record: 18-17. Game 35/127.
