#RedSox Game Summary (June 10) Guaranteed Satisfaction Sale

#RedSox Game Summary (June 10) Guaranteed satisfaction Sale. Boston’s sluggers had Chris Sale’s back today, as Chris was good, but not great, giving up 3 runs over 7 innings on 9 hits, while whiffing 7 and walking no one. The Detroit runs came on 2 singles and a Nicholas Castellanos double in the 5th for one, and another scoring on a fielder’s choice. In the 6th, Justin Uptown doubled and scored on a Mike Mahtook single. Our old friend Julio Igelsias also doubled off Sale. The Red Sox started the scoring when a series of singles and a walk by Tiger starter Justin Verlander set up a bases loaded situation for Dustin Pedroia, whose sac fly scored one run, and Mitch Moreland’s single drove in another. In the 5th, after Mookie Betts walked and Xander Bogaerts doubled, Verlander intentionally walked Mitch Moreland to bring Andrew Benintendi to the plate with the bases loaded. He did his job, launching a fly to center allowing Pedey to tag up and score, giving Boston the lead, 3-2. The Sox did their job of wearing Verlander down, and he finally sat after the 5th with a pitch count of 108. Now into the Tiger bullpen, the Sox hitters could really go to work. In the 7th, with the score tied, 3-3, Pedey and the X-Man singled, and Moreland drove them both in with a double. Moreland reached third on a wild pitch by Detroit reliever Warwick Saupold, and scored on a Josh Rutledge single. 6-3. In the 8th, Armenia Leon came on for Detroit, and walked Mookie before giving up a single to Pedey and a double to the X-Man for another run. 7-3. Leon then intentionally walked Moreland, and Benintendi’s subsequent single scored 2 more. 9-3. JBJ then singled to load the bases, and Leon walked Rutledge to force in another run. 10-3. Finally, Sandy Leon hit a sac fly. 11-3. Blaine Boyer came on for Boston in this non-save situation and closed things out. Boston beat Detroit, 11-3, at Fenway Park. Record: 34-27. Game 61/101.
