Boston Beats Cincy in 5-4 win

Boston beats Cincy, in a series where it was either a blowout or a 1 run game. The Sox and Reds gave us a truly incredible series, it was nice to see the Red Sox drive up their season total in wins to 91. Even though the rest of the games for the season don’t matter by the least. Now onto last nights game, Doug Fister got the nod for the Sox and Jackson Stephens got the start for the Reds.


Scoring Summary

Boston edged out Cincy yesterday by a score of 5-4. Rafael Devers and Mookie Betts had the majority of the production for the Sox. In what seemed like it was going to be a one-sided affair. The Reds got the scoring started on a Scooter Gennett double to left field scoring Zack Cozart making the score 1-1. The game went scoreless until the 5th inning. When Red Sox rookie sensation, Rafael Devers homered tying the game, while also being his 10th on the year. In only 195 at-bats and appearing in just 51 games has made a huge impact on this Sox lineup.


The Sox lead, however, didn’t last very long, for the following half inning. Reds starting pitcher, Jackson Stephens singled to center field making the score 2-1. Fister wasn’t able to stop the bleeding for the next batter, Billy Hamilton tripled on a line drive scoring Stephens. The last run on the night for the Reds came in the 7th. With Cozart batting a pickoff throw to first to catch Billy Hamilton, seemed to be going well. Until a bad throw by Dustin Pedroia allowing Hamilton to score because no one was covering the plate.


The 8th came around and with Mookie Betts up to bat, he lined a hard hit ball to center scoring both Christian Vazquez, Xander Bogaerts and Andrew Benintendi tying the score at 4 apiece. Then the rookie sensation Devers came to the plate and hit a slow bouncer in which Devers was able to beat it out. Then, with some heads-up base running, Mookie Betts raced home giving the Sox a  5-4 lead. In which they were able to hold on and secure the victory, and that is how Boston beat Cincy.
