#RedSox Game Summary (May 25) Undampened Spirits

#RedSox Game Summary (May 25) Undampened spirits. It was a cold and misty, drizzly night, but that did not get the Red Sox down, as they took advantage of timely hitting, aggressive base running, and a very good start by Drew Pomeranz to overcome the Texas Rangers for their fourth straight win. Once again, Boston scored early, when Xander Bogaerts singled off Texas starter Nick Martinez, stole 2nd, and scored on a single by Andrew Benintendi, who advanced to 2nd on a subsequent walk and scored on a Mitch Moreland single. Dustin Pedroia led off the 3rd with a walk and Xander brought him home with a 2 run dinger off the top of the Green Monster. In the 8th, Christian Vazquez doubled and came home on a 2 run blast by Mookie Betts. Pomeranz had a fine start, with his only real blemish being a solo bomb by Elvis Andrus in the 4th. In the 6th, he walked Delino DeShields and after DeShields stole 2nd, allowed a single for the second Texas score. Drew finished with 6 innings pitched giving up 2 runs on 4 hits and a walk, while punching out 11. A very good game. An oddity came in the 9th when Craig Kimbrel accomplished a rare 4 strikeout immaculate inning. Four strikeouts, you say? Yes, the first came when Nomar Mazara, with 2 strikes, swung on a wild pitch and reach first safely. It was to no avail, as Craig whiffed the next 3. One note of concern: Pedroia left the game in the 6th with a sore knee. Let’s hope it’s nothing serious. Can you feel the acceleration? I can. It was a clean sweep as Boston beat Texas, 6-2, at Fenway Park. Record: 25-21. Game 46/116.
