You probably turned the game off when David Price left with one out in the top of the second inning.

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."
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.

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).
