Rich Hill (pictured) threw a two-hit, complete-game shutout and David Ortiz drove in three runs as the Red Sox clubbed the Orioles 7-0 Friday night at Fenway Park.
Hill struck out ten for the third consecutive game and became the first Red Sox pitcher to throw a shutout since Clay Buchholz in August 2014. He walked just one and lowered his ERA to 1.17. Hill faced 30 batters and threw first-pitch strikes to 25 of them.
Mookie Betts saved the shutout with an amazing catch against the bullpen wall in right field for the final out of the game.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
