Red Sox Body-Slam Astros to Split Series

In the first two games of their four game set the Sox were outscored by the Astros 16-7. In the back end of the series the Sox out slugged the Stros 24-6. In the last ten innings of this quartet Boston put up 20 Houston managed 1 run

Wylyer Abreu hit his first big league home run and went 4-5 with 4 RBI on the day, Connor Wong had four hits as did Alex Verdugo who started the 17-1 afternoon with a lead off home run. Every starting sox player who stepped to the dish yesterday had a hit, five players had multi hit games and five had multi RBI afternoons. Take this lineup and bottle it Alex Cora. Bottle it. On the day the Sox had 24 hits, they went 10 for 22 with runners in scoring position. Bottle It.

Brayan Bello picked up his own gauntlet and pitched one of his best games of the season, and shockingly it was a matinée. Bello's day night splits have been polar opposites before yesterday afternoon, by the light of the silver moon Bello has pitched to a 9-3 record and a 2.63 ERA, But under the burning summer sun he is just 1-4 6.09 ERA. Thursday afternoon Bello went 7 innings, struck out 4 and walked just 1 batter on the day. was the roof closed ? ( maniacal chuckle. )

Yes, a dream day was had by all involved. Now let's wake up. The last I checked the sox are still 3.5 back for the LAST wildcard spot in the AL. This is what .500 ball clubs do. Win two , lose two, Lose a series - win a series - tie a series. Boston is 6-4 in their last ten and needed an extra inning to be above .500 in those ten. So my advice to you all is this. Channel your inner Adam Pellerin kids , Enjoy the little things in 2023. Enjoy the little things.
