Wright (pictured) pitched into the seventh inning to get the win, evening his 2017 record at 1-1. He allowed three runs (one earned) on nine hits and a walk while striking out three.
The bullpen again performed well with Robbie Ross Jr., Ben Taylor, Heath Hembree and Craig Kimbrel combining for three scoreless innings (although Taylor did allow an inherited runner to score in the seventh). Kimbrel struck out the side in the ninth to convert his 25th consecutive save opportunity, and his third in as many days.
Benintendi paced the Red Sox offense with three hits. Betts had two hits and has now gone 123 plate appearances without striking out.

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).
