#RedSox Game Summary (July 16, game 2) The Tough Get Going

#RedSox Game Summary (July 16, game 2) The tough get going. Vince Lombardi’s famous quote (Google it) is most applicable in reviewing this game. Mookie Betts, Dustin Pedroia, and Jackie Bradley, Jr. really showed their mettle in this one. JBJ’s jaw-dropping contribution was a home run stealing grab of Aaron Judge’s fly in the 8th as it was sailing over the angled pipe in the center field triangle. Only a perfectly timed jump and catch would to the job, and JBJ did it. Yankee starter Masahiro Tanaka was sharp as usual, but did surrender a single to Christian Vazquez in the 3rd inning, and Vazquez scored on a 2 run bomb by Mookie Betts that sailed over the Monster to Lansdowne Street. In the 6th, more clutch hitting came when Mookie singled and scored on a hit by Pedroia. David Price had an exceptional game, pitching 8 scoreless innings, giving up 7 hits and no walks with 8 Ks. The one extra-base hit he surrendered was a double by Garrett Cooper in the 5th. Craig Kimbrel did give up a double to Didi Gregorius, and walk in the 9th, but kept the Yanks from scoring. Boston beat New York, 3-0, at Fenway Park. Record: 52-41. Game 93/69.
