#RedSox Game Summary (June 30)

#RedSox Game (June 30) A walk in the park. This game was riddled with walks. The Sox had a bunch of walks (14 altogether), and underproduced given those walks, but got the runs when it really mattered. This game lasted 11 innings, and Boston made the last one count big time. Doug Fister started out roughly, giving up a 2 run homer to Toronto’s Justin Smoak in the first inning, but settled down after that. He blanked the Toronto Blue Jays for the next 4 innings, to finish with 5 innings pitched, giving up 3 runs on 4 hits and 3 walks with 5 Ks. Meanwhile, the Sox came back gradually. In the 5th, Dustin Pedrioa had 2 RBI double off Toronto starter Marco Estrada to get Boston close. In the following inning, Jackie Bradley, Jr. doubled, and scored on a Deven Marrero single to tie the score. Andrew Benintendi doubled in another run to put Boston in the lead, 4-3. In the bottom of the inning, Heath Hembree came on in relief and promptly gave up a solo bomb to Troy Tulowitzki, once again tying the score. The Sox had many opportunities to score, thanks in part to a plethora of walks issued by Toronto pitching, but were unable to capitalize. On we went, into extra innings. Finally, in the 11th, a string of 4 hits, including a double by Hanley Ramirez, resulted in 3 runs, and the Blue Jays were sunk. Boston beat Toronto, 7-4 in 11 innings, at the Rogers Centre. Record: 45-35. Game 80/82.
