#RedSox Game Summary (August 6) The Boys Are Back.

#RedSox Game Summary (August 6) The boys are back. And they brought their big bats with them. Ever since the arrival of Rafael Devers and Eduardo Núñez, these Red Sox have been looking like the Bosox of old, swinging the big bats and hitting those homers. Núñez contributed his dinger in the first inning off White Sox starter Mike Pelfry, and Chris Young, who went 3-for-4 in the game, got two: one in the first, and the other, a 3 run job in the 5th; plus he doubled in Andrew Benintendi in the 3rd. Sandy Leon also doubled in the game, and scored on Young’s second bomb. Doug Fister struggled in the second inning on the mound for Boston, giving up 4 hits, including a double to Tyler Saladino, for 3 runs. But he settled down after that, giving up a total of 8 hits and no walks over 6 1/3rd innings, while punching out 7. The bullpen finished things from there, and Craig Kimbrel, with his 27th save an a 1.51 ERA, is entering the rare air for a closer. The Sox are riding the crest of a 6 game winning streak and after a day off, head for St. Petersburg to face the Tampa Bay Rays. Boston beat Chicago, 6-3, at Fenway Park. Record: 63-49. Game 112/50.
