#RedSox Game Summary (July 14) Walk Off Walk

#RedSox Game Summary (July 14) Walk off walk. This was a tight game, and with Aroldis Chapman coming on in the 9th for New York, and a 1 run deficit, it looked bad for the Olde Towne Team, but patience and a key error made the difference. This was a solid start for Drew Pomeranz until the 5th. The Sox were leading 3-1 at that point, but a leadoff double by Chase Headley, followed by a Brett Gardner single and 3 run bomb by Gary Sanchez put the Sox in a 4-3 hole. The other Yankee run came in the 3rd, when Headley singled and scored after 2 more singles by Ronald Torreyes and Sanchez. Boston’s runs came in the 3rd, when Hanley Ramirez hit a 2 run blast to center, and in the 4th, when Boston loaded the bases off Yankees starter Jordan Montgomery on a walk, a Christian Vázquez single, and and error by 2nd baseman Ronald Torreyes, setting up an RBI single by Dustin Pedroia for the 3rd Red Sox run. The Sox were trailing in the bottom of the 9th when Chapman allowed an infield single to Mookie Betts and another to Pedroia. Xander Bogaerts reached on a second error by Torreyes, allowing Mookie to tie the game. Then, Chapman intentionally walked Hanley Ramirez to load the bases for Andrew Benintendi. But Chapman could not find a way to get Benny out, and walked in the winning run. By the way, the Sox designated Pablo Sandoval for assignment today. Just as well. Boston beat New York, 5-4, at Fenway Park. Record: 51-39. Game 90/72.
