After losing five in a row, the Boston Red Sox bounced back by defeating the Toronto Blue Jays 7-4.
Boston got themselves a four-run lead early after knocking around former Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz. After that, Boston never really looked back.
The Blue Jays tried to come back scoring two runs in the bottom of the fifth on a Cavan Biggio triple and a Vladimir Guerrero Jr. single, but their sloppy play (three errors) prevented that.
With Boston firmly out of the playoff picture sitting at 77-70, there has not been much to take away from these games. Still, some players on the team are accomplishing great feats.
For example, last night shortstop Xander Bogaerts became only the second shortstop in MLB history to hit 30+ home runs and 50+ doubles in a season. Despite how this season went for Boston, there is no denying that Xander Bogaerts has been a very bright spot for the disappointing team.
Tonight, the Sox take on the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Boston will send out lefty Eduardo Rodriguez to take on Phil’s ace Aaron Nola. You can catch the game tonight at 7:05 by watching on NESN or listening to it on 93.7 WEEI FM.
