Red Sox Beat Twins 9-4
The Boston Red Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 9-4 on Wednesday, June 19th. The Red Sox are now 12-1 in their last 13 games on "getaway days" and ended the road trip with a 5-1 record. The Red Sox are off on Thursday, June 20th, and have played 33 games in 34 days from May 17th thru June 19th.
Wednesday night Eduardo Rodriguez went 7 innings, on a night when the bullpen was depleted after Tuesday night's 17 inning game. He allowed 4 runs, and 8 hits while striking out 9 and walking 3. With the win, he improves to 8-4 on the season. Matt Barnes pitched the 8th and Marcus Walden the 9th innings.
Mookie Betts, Rafael Devers, Eduardo Nunez, and Michael Chavis all had 2 hits, as Boston banged out 12 hits on the night. Bogaerts and Benintendi each had a double while Mookie Betts hit his 2nd triple of the season.
Of concern was the fact that Rafael Devers left the game with hamstring tightness. He's considered day-to-day.
Prior to the game, the Red Sox put Hector Velazquez back on the 10 day injured list with a low back strain, just a day after he was restored to the active roster. They recalled Josh Smith to take his place.
The Red Sox will open a 6 game homestand against the Blue Jays and White Sox before being off on June 27th and 28th and then will play the Yankees in London on June 29th and 30th.
