Red Sox Win the “Hitter’s Duel”

Over 30 hits, over 20 runs, and almost anything else other then a pitcher’s duel. Dustin Pedroia went 4 for 5 with multiple doubles. This game increased Pedroia’s hitting streak to 23 games, and in that span, he is hitting over .390. The Royals struck first with an RBI double that was eventually followed by a saccrifice fly out. The Red Sox came right back. A-Gon got the opportunity to hit an RBI sac fly to left field. The little mouse would hit his second triple of the season, and Big Papi would drive him in on a double. The Royals would get in two more with a bases loaded ground-rule double. The Red Sox would eventually come back like they always do. The Sox took the lead in the following sequence:

Marco Scutaro doubles, A-Gon walks, Dustin Pedroia hits an RBI double, and Big Papi hit a 2 run double.

However, Miller would not be able to keep the lead. He gave up a 2 run home run and a solo shot in his last inning of work— the 4th inning. After giving up a double, Aceves got out of the inning. The Red Sox got another run on a bases loaded walk. V-tek would get the third out of the inning however, thus ending the threat. In the next inning, the Red Sox’s bats exploded. The first 8 batters reached base. Josh Reddick and Jacoby Ellsbury both hit singles. The Red Sox would catch a huge break on Drew Sutton’s sacrifice bunt. The second baseman made a costly error, allowing Ellsbury and Reddick to score with Sutton on third. After Marco Scutaro walked, A-Gon drove in Sutton with an RBI single. Pedroia also hit a single, thus loading up the bases. David Ortiz would hit a 2 run single, and the final run of the inning came on a sacrifice fly hit by Josh Reddick bringing in Pedroia from third base. The Red Sox got their last run on V-tek’s solo home run. The Royals got two more runs in the game on 2 RBI singles. The Red Sox won the game by the final score of 13-9 for their 63rd win of the season.
