Already facing elimination down 0-2 to the hot Houston Astros, Boston survives game 3 and looks to tie up the series up going into tomorrow’s game. One that has a very early start time, first pitch is set at 12:00 PM. Porcello gets the start for the Sox tomorrow. While going for the Houston Astros is the right handed veteran, Charlie Morton. It is hard to say which pitcher has then edge in game 4. Most would say Porcello, because of the Cy Young win last season. However, he posted a 4.65 ERA while going a sad 11-17 in the regular season. So, it seems to be a toss up between the two pitchers.


Red Sox Scoring Frenzy

After being down 3-1 for a couple innings in this game, it felt like it was Boston’s turn to do the high scoring. They ended up scoring a total of 10 runs on 15 hits. This is a really good sign going forward, as they face elimination yet again tomorrow. The Sox started the scoring in the 2nd inning when Sandy Leon hit a single to left field that scored Mitch Moreland and moved Ramirez to 3rd and Devers to 2nd. Trailing 3-1 going into the 3rd, Hanley Ramirez riped a line drive single over the head of the left fielder that scored Mitch Moreland from 2nd.

The Sox grabbed the lead on the next batter, when Rafeal Devers gave the Sox the lead with a monster smash to right center field. The blast gave the Red Sox a 4-3 lead and they never looked back. The game then went scoreless until the 7th inning when the Sox broke the game wide open with a 6 run rally.

The scoring started when Hanley Ramirez hit a sharp ground ball, scoring Andrew Benentendi and Mookie Betts. Ramirez’ RBI gave the Red Sox a 6-3 lead, but they weren’t done scoring. The kid, Rafeal Devers, hit a soft fly ball to left field that barely found the outfield grass. Devers’ hit scored Mitch Moreland and extended the lead to 7-3.  The final runs for the Sox came on a 3-run home run by Jackie Bradey Jr., that made the score 10-3.  The Sox will look to tie up the series tomorrow, behind the arm of Rick Porcello. If not, the Sox had a great season, that should make them very proud.
