The Sox head to Baltimore on a high note

Already down 6-1, the 2019 Red Sox have done little this year to make anyone think that this one wasn't over.

7.2 scoreless innings of relief and five home runs later, Boston pulled off an improbable 7-6 win over the Texas Rangers, earning a split of their four-game series.

The turning point, believe it or not, came on Jackie Bradley Jr.'s three-run home run in the bottom of the second inning that brought the Sox to within two runs at 6-4. After the game, Xander Bogaerts (who homered himself) said of JBJ's blast, "I think at that point we were feeling good about ourselves."

In addition to Bradley and Bogaerts (pictured), J.D. Martinez, Rafael Devers and Michael Chavis all went deep with Bogaerts's solo shot in the bottom of the seventh being the difference.

So the Red Sox open a three-game weekend series against the Orioles with a modest two-game winning streak and a little momentum. Eduardo Rodriguez will take the mound Friday night looking to improve on his 6-4 record.
