Another game, another win for this Red Sox team. Winning feels pretty dang good. Make that seven straight wins for this team. They’re on a roll.

The game started off just like it has in most games – a Mookie Betts lead off home run. The offense couldn’t get anything going after the Betts home run for a while.

Eduardo Rodriguez was on the mound for the Sox, and he was dealing most of the game. The starting rotation continues to dominate. Rodriguez only allowed two runs on three hits last night.

The offense was able to score a run in the fourth inning after J.D. Martinez hit an RBI double. Rafael Devers would then knock in J.D. on an RBI single.

The Red Sox didn’t score again until the sixth inning. This is when Andrew Benintendi hit his first home run of the year. The Red Sox offense was then able to get a couple of hits to score a couple of runs giving them a 5-2 lead.

The Red Sox bullpen was able to hold onto the lead the rest of the game. The bullpen was able to escape a few jams without giving up any damage.

The Red Sox were able to score once more in the eighth and two more in the ninth. The Red Sox ended up beating the Angels 8-2, completing the sweep against one of the hottest teams in baseball. The team showed a lot of good signs in this series. This Red Sox team continues to impress. Let’s hope they can finish off the west coast trip with another series sweep. The Red Sox are set to play the Oakland A’s tonight. Drew Pomeranz is scheduled to make his 2018 debut in tonight’s game.  Let’s hope he can continue the stellar starting pitching.

 

Final Score: Red Sox 8, Angels 2
