The Red Sox were firing on all cylinders yesterday afternoon. 28-year-old spot-starter Ryan Weber came up from triple-A to throw 6 innings of one run baseball, only allowing three Jays to reach while he was on the mound.
On the offensive side, Boston was able to get 15 hits off of Toronto pitching. The Blue Jays do not have the greatest pitching in the world, but tallying 15 hits is no walk in the park.
It was a team win for Boston, but the most encouraging sign from the team yesterday was the fact that both Jackie Bradley Jr. and Steve Pearce appeared to show life at the plate. The two slumping hitters combined to go 5 for 9 with 3 RBI’s, all of which came courtesy of a 3-run moonshot by Pearce in the 9th inning.
Next up for Boston is a visit to Houston as they take on the Astros. After losing two of three to Houston at Fenway Park, the Sox will look to bounce back and win the series this time at Minute Maid Park. First pitch of game one is scheduled at 8:10 pm in Hosuton. It will be a matchup of left-handers as Astro Wade Miley takes on Red Sox ace Chris Sale. You can catch the matchup by watching on NESN, or listening to it on 93.7 WEEI FM.
