#RedSox Game Summary (May 26) Taking the fifth. Eduardo Rodriguez had another fine start, the Sox played excellently in the field despite persistent light rain, and were aided by key hits, and a wild pitch and passed ball as they beat the Seattle Mariners to win their fifth game in a row. The Sox scored first in the 2nd when Hanley Ramirez doubled, and scored on a fielder’s choice. Jackie Bradley, Jr. also doubled in the inning. The Sox got 2 insurance runs in the 6th when Josh Rutledge singled, advanced to 2nd on a walk, and to 3rd on a fielder’s choice, then scored on a wild pitch by Seattle starter Yovani Gallardo. JBJ, who had walked and reached 3rd on the same wild pitch, scored on a passed ball by Mariners’ catcher Mike Zunino. The Boston pitching staff combined for a shutout. Rodriguez went 6 innings, giving up no runs on 5 hits and 3 walks, with 4 whiffs. The only extra base hit for Seattle was a double by Jean Segura in the 3rd. Heath Hembree, Matt Barnes, and of course, Craig Kimbrel combined to shut down Seattle the rest of the way. We have a hot streak going on. Boston beat Seattle, 3-0, at Fenway Park. Record: 26-21.
