Boston, Massachusetts (PRWEB) June 05, 2013
On June 4, 2013, the Boston Red Sox routed the Texas Rangers in a 17-5 win. The Red Sox hit for a cycle in one inning and continued to play better than they have all season. Jackie Bradley Jr. hit his first career home run and finished the game with three RBI’s. The rest of the team made other records left and right for hits in runs in their tremendous win. Four players total hit home runs for Boston, including Mike Carp, Stephen Drew, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. The team had at least one run in every inning from innings one through seven, and hit for a cycle as a team in the second. While the Sox had 8 doubles, they finished with nineteen hits total.
It was a great day for pitcher Ryan Dempster, who had not won a game in a month. After the team racked up some runs, he had a lot of breathing room and was able to relax. It was then that he tried to get some quick outs.
Veteran David Ortiz had three RBI’s. He had a double in the first inning that led in one run, then two runs after hitting a triple during the second. Ortiz also scored on a sacrifice when he tagged up on third and made his way to home plate.
The Texans used six pitchers in the scoring outburst by Boston, but none could stop them, except for one. In the eighth inning, outfielder David Murphy made his first career pitching appearance, and stopped the Red Sox from scoring again. http://sports.yahoo.com/news/red-sox-score-season-best-024246690--mlb.html
