#Red Sox Game Summary (May 24) The Wild Ones

#RedSox Game Summary (May 24) The Wild Ones. Between wild pitches and errors, the Rangers gave the Red Sox plenty of opportunities to reach base and score, and they took full advantage of it. Our old friend Mike Napoli committed two of the three errors in the game, but also hit a home run for Texas. The Sox scored first in the 3rd, when Deven Marrero singled off Texas starter Martin Perez, stole 2nd, and scored on a Mookie Betts hit. The Rangers came back in the 4th to tie the score when Delino DeShields walked, took second on a Sandy Leon passed ball, reached 3rd on a fielder’s choice, and scored on a sac fly. In the 5th came Napoli’s home run, followed by a Ryan Rua double. Rua scored on a Joey Gallo hit. It all blew up in the 7th, beginning when the Sox hit a series of singles that resulted in a run. One of those singles was by Sam Travis; his second major league hit (his first came in the 5th). With two on, Josh Rutledge hit safely, and due to a throwing error by Shin-Soo Choo, Sam Travis scored. A Sam Dyson wild pitch allowed another run, and a Dustin Pedroia single drove in 2 more runs. After Xander Bogaerts doubled, Dyson intentionally walked Hanley Ramirez to load the bases, then walked Chris Young, to force in another Boston run. An Andrew Benintendi sac fly delivered Boston’s 7th run of the inning. Texas scored one more in the 8th when DeShields doubled and scored on a Choo single. Boston responded when Mitch Moreland singled, reached 2nd on a wild pitch, and scored on a Mookie Betts single. The Sox went 12-for-33 in the game, scoring 9 runs. Chris Sale had a pretty good start, but not one of his best, going 7 1/3rd innings with 4 runs on 6 hits and a walk, while notching 6 whiffs. Texas had 3 errors and 3 wild pitches. Boston had one error when Christian Vazquez muffed a pop foul. The Red Sox have now won 3 in a row for the first time since April 18, and have an official winning streak going. Woo-hoo! Boston beat Texas, 9-4, at Fenway Park. Record: 24-21. Game 45/117.
