#RedSox Game Summary (May 13) Shelter From the Storm

#RedSox Game Summary (May 13) Shelter from the storm. The Red Sox moved this game from its original 7:10 pm start time to 1:10 pm in order to avoid an impending severe storm that’s expected to pound the region tonight with buckets of rain. Chris Sale also provided some shelter for the Sox with another strong performance that avoided a possible skid (the Sox had lost 3 of the prior 4 games). Mookie Betts also provided much needed firepower, going 2-for-4 with a double and home run. Sales’s only real mistakes rendered the only two hits registered against him, both of which were, unfortunately, homers. The first was a solo job by the Rays’ Logan Morrison in the 2nd, and the other was a 2 run shot by Kevin Kiermaier in the 5th. The Sox started their scoring with a 2 run bomb by Betts in the 3rd off Tampa Bay starter Blake Snell. Then in the 5th, after Kiermaier’s dinger had allowed the Rays to retake the lead, Sandy Leon waked, and Jackie Bradley, Jr. (2-for-3), Deven Marrero, and Betts doubled in succession to drive in 3 runs. Dustin Pedroia turned to a little small ball, moving Betts from 2nd to 3rd with a sacrifice bunt, and Xander Bogaerts drove in Betts with a fielder’s choice. The bullpen came on strong, as Joe Kelly held in the 8th, and Craig Kimberly dispatched the Rays in order in the 9th; 2 by way of the K. Lookin’ good; now if they can just keep it up. Boston beat Tampa Bay, 6-3, at Fenway Park. Record: 19-17. Game 36/126.
