#RedSox Game Summary (September 14) Benny Ball

#RedSox Game Summary (September 14) Benny Ball. Andrew Benintendi had an outstanding game today, going 3-for-4 with a double to drive in 3 runs and score one himself, as the Sox took this one away from the A’s in the late innings. Drew Pomeranz started for the Red Sox, going 6 innings while giving up 1 run on 5 hits and 3 walks and whiffing 5. The one run came in the 5th inning when Matt Chapman walked, reached 3rd on a Mark Canha double, and scored on a sac fly by Josh Phegley. Christian Vazquez answered that score with a solo bomb off Oakland starter Daniel Gossett. The A’s got another in the 8th when Ryan Healy homered off Joe Kelly. But the Sox attack was relentless. In the 6th, Dustin Pedroia and Benny Baseball hit back-to-back doubles to plate one run, and end Gossett’s day. Mitch Moreland hit the 3rd Boston double of the inning off reliever Ryan Dull to drive in the 3rd Red Sox run. In the 7th, Rafael Devers doubled off Sam Moll and reached 3rd on a fielder’s choice. That play resulted in an error by Matt Chapman that allowed the batter, Brock Holt, to reach 2nd. On came Stantiago Casilla, who hit Xander Bogaerts to load the bases for Pedey, whose sac fly scored one run. Then a line drive single off the bat of Benintendi plated 2 more. Way to bounce back, boys. Boston beat Oakland, 6-2, at Fenway Park. Record: 83-63. Game 146/16.
