Another game with the Red Sox putting up double digits in hits and runs...another good performance by Steven Wright...more hits for Jackie Bradley Jr. and Xander Bogaerts.... The only surprise was that the Sox didn't have a lead after the first inning.

Wright (pictured) went seven innings to even his record at 4-4. Two of the three runs against him were earned on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven. In nine starts this year, Wright has pitched into the seventh inning in six of them.
Trailing 2-0 going into the bottom of the fourth inning, Bogarts homered to cut the lead in half. Travis Shaw tied the game with an RBI single and Blake Swihart drove home two more with a triple.
The Red Sox on three runs in both the fifth and eighth innings to win their fourth straight game and seventh out of their last ten.
JBJ had a pair of his to extend his hitting streak to 29 straight games. Bogaerts' home run in the fourth pushed his hitting streak to 18 straight games.

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 (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
