The Boston Red Sox finally did it. With a 6-4 comeback win against the first-place Tampa Bay Rays, Boston snapped its three-game losing streak. The victory pushes the defending World Series champs to 7-13 on the season.
This game followed the 2019 blueprint early, with the Rays getting out to a 2-0 lead heading into the 5th inning. A two-run blast by Christian Vazquez, who astonishingly has already hit four homeruns this year, put the Sox ahead in the third. Boston managed to tag on another in the 6th, but the Rays tied them up in the bottom frame with two runs of its own.
The 8th inning is where the real magic happened. Mookie Betts and Mitch Moreland hit back-to-back moonshots to lead the team to its eventual victory.
On the pitching side, Eduardo Rodriguez delivered a very Eduardo Rodriguez-esque performance. He pitched 5 and 1/3 innings of 3 earned run baseball (4 runs total). Additionally, he punched out six and walked one.
The bullpen followed his outing with mastery. Barnes and Brasier provided, yet again, a shutdown 8th/9th inning combination.
The Boston Red Sox will take on the Tampa Bay Rays at 6:10 p.m. eastern for Game Two of the series. Rick Porcello will square off against Charlie Morton.
