#RedSox Game Summary (August 5) Not So Scary

#RedSox Game Summary (August 5) Not so scary. James Shields was a terror to Red Sox fans when he was a starter for the Tampa Bay Rays a few years ago, but his fastball has lost about 5-6 MPH, and he is no longer a mystery to Boston’s hitters. Shields, starting for the Chicago White Sox, gave up 4 runs on 5 hits including home runs for Andrew Benintendi and Jackie Bradley, Jr., and doubles by Mitch Moreland and Mookie Betts. Boston starter Drew Pomeranz, meanwhile, looked confident, and even though he got into trouble a few times in his 6 1/3rd innings, he surrendered just one run on a homer by Tim Anderson in the 1st inning. He ended up giving up 7 hits and a walk while whiffing 8. Blaine Boyer provided a solid 1 2/3rd innings, and Craig Kimbrel mopped up from there. Although Kimbrel did hit Chicago’s Leury Garcia with a pitch, he subsequently picked him off, and ended the game with 2 punch-outs. Boston beat Chicago, 4-1, at Fenway Park. Record: 62-49. Game 111/51.
