Andrew Benintendi Let’s Bat Fly as the Red Sox Beat the Yankees
Drew Pomeranz took the mound today [Saturday] and was dominating. He gave up 2 runs early on and had a tough 4th inning. Yet even with these rough patches, he pushed through it.
His 4th Inning was most impressive. He loaded the bases and it didn’t look good. I mean seriously, the bases were loaded with no outs against the Yankees. It looked like they would tee off against him. But you know what? He made it work.
Pomeranz pitched the rest of the inning flawlessly, he got the outs and left the Yankees with a goose egg on the scoreboard on the inning. That’s one way to do it!
Pomeranz ended up getting the win with good hitting behind him. He went 6.2 Innings 3 Runs 7 Hits 2 BB and 5 Ks. He just got fired up and made his pitches strong. He is now [12 – 4] on the Season, which is well pretty good. I mean his numbers are remarkable for the Red Sox!
The real story of the day was Andrew Benintendi, who hit a 3-run homer in the 3rd Inning as well as in the 5th Inning. He had 6 RBIs on the day. Have a game will yah!
His bomb to right field came in the 3rd after back-to-back walks and an error. He just knocked it out like he was playing Tee Ball. It was a big deal at the time. But what happened in the 5th was pivotal.
Christian Vasquez was up at the plate and he works on a walk, off of Yankees Pitcher Luis Severino. He made him work hard and fouled off several pitches. Vasquez pretty much chased him out of the game. Benintendi would go up to bat again and again hit a 3-run bomb to right field.
It was like Christmas or something! Like a newly opened gift, it was that kind of hit and that kind of game for the Red Sox.
Devers and Mookie Betts both had a 2 RBI game and were part of the Run Parade. The Sox would go on to Win the Game [10-5] making up for their blunder loss last night. The Red Sox are now 4.5 Games up on the Yankees and are above .500 on the road.
Sale will be pitching for the Sox as they face the Yankees tomorrow. Look to see him pitch well as he is the best Pitcher in Baseball right now with Cy Young aspirations.
