#RedSox Game Summary (July 26) Another Day at the Office

#RedSox Game Summary (July 26) Another day at the office. This is how it is with Chris Sale. Show up, punch the clock, blow away a bunch of guys, take the win, punch out. This time, he threw 7 scoreless innings while giving up just 3 hits and one walk, and punching out 11. Blaine Boyer took over in the 8th, but when he got into trouble with 1 out and 2 on in the 9th, John Farrell looked to closer Craig Kimbrel to finish off the Mariners, which he did. Seattle starter Andrew Moore struggled against the Sox, giving up at least one run in each of 3 innings. In the 2nd, Hanley Ramirez walked, reached 3rd on a Jackie Bradley, Jr. double, and scored on a sac fly by Mitch Moreland. In the 3rd, newly promoted 3rd baseman Rafael Devers got his first major league hit, and it was a doozy! A massive solo shot to center. In the 4th, JBJ got his second double of the game, and scored when Sandy Leon sent a dinger over the right field fence. Mariners Jean Segura and Guillermo Heredia both doubled off Sale in the game, but did not score. This was a critical win for the Sox, who have had a rough road trip, winning just 2 out of 6. Devers looked good today, going 2-for-4, including his big fly, but he may find himself back in Pawtucket when newly acquired 3B Eduardo Nuñez joins the team. We shall see. Boston beat Seattle, 4-0, at Safeco Field. Record: 56-47. Game 103/59.
