#RedSox Game Summary (July 17) Rocky Return

#RedSox Game Summary (July 17) Rocky return. Eduardo Rodríguez returned to the Red Sox rotation today, and was greeted rudely with a series of Toronto hits that led to 3 runs. In the 1st, a single by Russell Martin and a walk led to a 2 RBI double by Kendrys Morales that put the Sox in a 2 run hole. That hole deepened when Steve Pearce hit a solo bomb to left. Jays starter Marcus Stroman was pretty effective against the Red Sox, keeping Boston off the scoreboard for 6 innings. But in the 7th, Andrew Benintendi doubled, and Jackie Bradley, Jr. reached on an error by Stroman, setting up a 1st and 3rd situation, which became bases loaded when Christian Vazquez walked. Benny then scored on a Brock Holt sac fly, and Mookie Betts drove in JBJ with a single. A Dustin Pedroia double tied the score, though Mookie ran through Brian Butterfield’s stop sign to end the inning. Still, the score was tied. In the 8th, however, the sometimes inconsistent Heath Hembree walked the leadoff man (Justin Smoaks) and allowed singles to Morales and Pearce for Toronto’s 4th run. The Sox hitters could not respond. Kevin Pillar also doubled for the Jays, but did not score. So, Rodgríguez got a no-decision, and Hembree took the loss. Toronto beat Boston, 4-3, at Fenway Park. Record: 52-42. Game 94/68.
