#RedSox Game Summary (June 9) Heavy Hitting Heroes

#RedSox Game Summary (June 9) Heaving hitting heroes. Boston’s heavy hitters, Mookie Betts (2-for-3), Mitch Moreland (3-for-4), Xander Bogaerts (2-for-4), and Jackie Bradley, Jr. (2-for-4) came up big tonight to overcome a 1 run deficit and top the Detroit Tigers. Red Sox rookie Brian Johnson started this game, and was greeted with a rough first inning, as Nicholas Costellanos hit a solo bomb. Then, Johnson surrendered 3 successive singles to yield another score. The Tigers notched another in the 4th as Mikie Mahtook hit another solo blast. After Johnson gave up a 1 out single to our old friend Victor Martinez in the 5th, Heath Hembree came on in relief, having thrown 105 pitches in just 4 1/3rd innings. The bullpen took it from there, as Red Sox batters tried to find a solution for Detroit pitching. In the bottom of the 4th, Mitch Moreland found the simplest solution: a solo dinger off Tiger starter Jordan Zimmermann. Later in the inning, Andrew Benintendi singled, and scored on a hit by JBJ. The score remained 3-2 until the bottom of the 8th, when Bogaerts singled and scored on a Moreland hit. Then, JBJ hit a 2 run bomb to right. Craig Kimbrel came on in the 9th and, well, that was that. Moreland and Betts also doubled for the Red Sox. Boston beat Detroit, 5-3, at Fenway Park. Record: 33-27. Game 60/102.
