It’s game 2 at The Cell with the Orioles and Carlos Rodon has the office keys, Tim Anderson back in the line up after that day off with the bruised hand.
Carlos first pitch is a ball. Carlos needs to get his control better, too many balls. Gets his first strikeout, need more of that today. I like Carlos but he needs control work.
Tyler Saladino misses the catch and it’s a double to open Baltimore’s hitting.
Timmy opens with a double, Melky said, “if Timmy can do that , so can I” another double and Timmy is home for a 1 to 0 Sox lead
The 1st 2 Baltimore batters reached base, after that, Carlos has shut them down.
Tyler goes YARD for a 2 to 0 Sox lead, Timmy with a walk, Adam Eaton with a 2 out single
2 out Double for Baltimore and it’s a 2 to 1 Sox lead.
Omar Narvaez walks to open the Sox part of the 5th
Top of 6th and Timmy with a rare error, Carlos in trouble and its a 2 all ball game. Melky with a single to left, to open the home half of the inning.
Carlos has flipped the office keys to Jacob Turner to open the 7th inning, Jacob gets 2 outs and leaves the office keys with Robin for Nate Jones
Justin (J.B Shuck in to run) finally on base with a lead off single, Todd Frazier with a single of his own. Avi with a single to load the pond, Play under review and J.B is home for a 3 to 2 Sox lead
Adam Eaton takes the first pitch of the bottom of the 8th inning YARD over the right fence for a 4 to 2 Sox lead. Jose was hit by a pitch, J.B when you bunt , it works better when you bun the ball down, not up.
David Robertson with the keys to hopefully lock up for the night, Robbie gets a breather by getting the double play for the night and this game is ova.
Final Score is Sox – 4 and Orioles – 2
