#RedSox Game Summary (June 13) Worth the Wait

#RedSox Game Summary (June 13) Worth the wait. This was a long, long game, going 12 innings. It was also extremely well played, with some fantastic plays in the field, including a near miraculous Mookie Betts catch as he crashed into the stands, and a double play started by a flip from Dustin Pedroia as he slipped on the rain-soaked infield dirt. David Price got the start, and had a decent game… not quite his dominating self, but looking pretty good. Price went 6 innings, giving up 3 runs on 4 hits and 4 walks. He whiffed 6. Those runs came on a 2 run homer by Aaron Altherr in the 3rd, and in the 6th, which saw a ground-rule double by Tommy Joseph, who scored later on a fielder’s choice. The Sox got single runs in the first, second, and third innings. In the first, they loaded the bases on a single, a double by Xander Bogaerts off Philadelphia starter Ben Lively, and a HBP. Then, with the bases loaded and 1 out, Andrew Benintendi walked to force in a run. Unfortunately, that was all they would get that inning. In the 2nd, Jackie Bradley, Jr. doubled and scored on a Christian Vazquez double. And in the 3rd, Mitch Moreland hit a solo monster smash to center. After the Phillies tied the game, 3-3, in the 6th, a tense battle ensued with hits and great plays, and no runs until the 12th. It was then that Xander Bogaerts walked and Moreland singled, setting up 2 on and 1 out for Benintendi, who hit a base that bounced over the wall in right to score the X-Man and end the game. Maikel Franco also doubled for Philadelphia, and Benintendi doubled for Boston. Boston beat Philadelphia, 4-3 in 12 innings in interleague play, at Fenway Park. Record: 36-28. Game 64/98.
