#RedSox Game Summary (September 10) No Spark

#RedSox Game Summary (September 10) No spark. With both Dustin Pedroia and Eduardo Núñez out of the lineup, these Red Sox seemed to lack the juice they needed to get going. They scored just 1 run against Tampa Bay starter Alex Cobb, and that came in the 2nd inning, when Mitch Moreland walked, reached 2nd on a fielder’s choice, and scored on a single by Christian Vázquez. All in all, the Sox went 5-for-30 with 3 walks in the game. They only Boston batter with multiple hits was Vázquez, who is making his case for a lucrative contract at the end of the year. Meanwhile, Boston starter Rick Porcello was managing the game pretty well until the 5th, when he surrendered a double to Brad Miller and singles to Wilson Ramos, Kevin Kiermaier, and Evan Longoria for 2 runs. In the 6th, Sox reliever Brandon Workman gave up a solo bomb to Ramos, and in the 8th, the Rays’ Lucas Duda homered off Robby Scott. Duda also had a double in the game. Now they get a day off to consider how to approach the stretch drive, before getting into it with the lowly Oakland A’s. Tampa Bay beat Boston, 4-1, at Fenway Park. Record: 81-62. Game 143/19.
