Today was the final game of the season at Fenway Park. The Red Sox got the 2-0 win. Henry Owens pitched 7.2 great innings, with only 3 hits, no earned runs, 1 walk and 5 strikeouts.
The first run was scored in the 1st inning. Mookie struck out, but Brock Holt walked. Bogaerts then singled. But he decided to go to second and he lost his chance. However, he advanced Holt to third. Then, with David Ortiz up, there was a wild pitch and Holt slid home on a close play!!!! It was a great base running move for Holt! He slid he just ahead of the throw.
The second run came in the bottom of the 3rd, when Blake Swihart hit a leadoff solo shot. The rest of the game was quiet, and only five more hits were hit by Boston. The Orioles were held to six, only four after the dinger. I got to enjoy today’s game from a top level luxury box. The Pats also won today, 51-17. See my full post game recap on the Pats coming soon.
