#RedSox Game Summary (September 30) Champagne time. The Boston Red Sox are the American League Eastern Division champions for 2017. They got there with a lot of gritty come from behind wins, and wins in extra innings. In this game, Drew Pomeranz had an excellent start, pitching 6+ innings, giving up 1 Astro run on 3 hits and 2 walks with one strikeout. He gave up no extra base hits in the game. Houston scored 2 runs in the 7th on a series of 4 singles, the first by José Altuve off Porcello, and the others off Carson Smith. Brian McCann hit line drive past the Pesky Pole for an addition run on his solo dinger off Craig Kimbrel, but by then it hardly mattered. David Price also had a strong inning, which was really great to see. Houston starter Lance McCullers, Jr. kept the Sox scoreless until the 4th, when a pair of walks turned into runs on a single by Hanley Ramírez and a double by Rafael Devers. In the 5th, Xander Bogaerts doubled and scored on a single by Andrew Benintendi. Mookie Betts then singled, and both Benny and Mookie advanced on a double steal. They were driven in by Mitch Moreland’s double. After the Astros scored 2 in the top of the 7th, the Red Sox got one back on a blast that cleared the Monster by Mookie. At that point, everyone pretty much knew how this one would turn out. Boston beat Houston, 6-3, at Fenway Park. Record: 93-68. Game 161/1.
