#Red Sox Game Summary (August 20) This One’s For You, Jerry

#RedSox Game Summary (August 20) This one’s for you, Jerry. Today was Jerry Remy Day, honoring 30 years of color commentary in the booth for the Boston Red Sox by the beloved former Red Sox 2nd baseman, and the team seemed especially energized by the event. Rick Porcello had a solid start, going 6 innings against New York while giving up just 1 run on 3 hits and 3 walks, with 4 punch-outs. The one run was a solo line drive shot over the short right field corner near the Pesky Pole by Brett Gardner. That proved to be the only Yankee run, as Brian Workman, Addison Reed, and Craig Kimbrel blanked the Yanks in successive innings to complete Porcello’s solid win. The Sox started the scoring in the bottom of the 2nd, with 3 successive hits including a 2 RBI triple by Jackie Bradley, Jr. In the 6th, Mitch Moreland singled, reached 2nd on a wild pitch and 3rd on a fielder’s choice, scoring on a single by JBJ. In the 8th, after Xander Bogaerts walked, back-to-back doubles by Mitch Moreland and Sandy Leon plated 2 more runs. Chase Headley also doubled for the Yankees, and Hanley Ramirez for the Sox. An all-around solid win against a very good Yankees team, which may help give them some momentum going into their series with the redoubtable Cleveland Indians. Boston beat New York, 5-1, at Fenway Park. Record: 71-52. Game 123/39.
