Boston Red Sox Win In Texas Behind Offensive Powerhouse With The Bottom Half Of The Order Teeing Off

The Boston Red Sox offense has been dialing up the heat the last couple of weeks and their fourth of July game was a prime example of that. They defeated the Texas Rangers 11-4 and move their record to 49-35 on the season.

Red Sox hitters had 19 hits on the night driving in 11 runs. The offense itself was bottom heavy with the top of the lineup not pulling their weight.

Mookie Betts went 0-for-6, Dustin Pedroia went 1-for-5, and Xander Bogaerts went 0-for-5. That is 1-2-3 in the Boston Red Sox order.

The bottom half, on the other hand, was electric. Andrew Benintendi went 5-for-5 with 6 RBIs and two home runs and was the clear MVP on the night. But even with Benintendi’s big night, there were players around him who also had great performances.

Jackie Bradley Jr. went 3-for-5 with a home run, Christian Vazquez went 3-for-5, and Tzu-Wei Lin went 3-for-4.

Boston sent David Price to the mound on the Fourth of July and he delivered. Price threw 6 innings giving up 6 hits, zero runs, 2 walks, and 9 strikeouts.

After Price, Red Sox manager John Farrell used Blaine Boyer out of the bullpen. Boyer pitched 2 innings giving up 3 runs on 3 hits. But he struck out 6 batters which were all the outs recorded by Boston during his time on the mound. The 3 runs he gave up came via a Mike Napoli 3-run-shot so Red Sox fans can’t even be mad about that.

Robby Scott was called upon to pitch the bottom of the ninth and gave up a solo home run and a walk before getting the Red Sox out of the game.

Next up for the Boston Red Sox is a Wednesday game with Doug Fister on the mound against Andrew Cashner.
