Sox and Baltimore in their Final Game at Rate Field

I am learning to expect the unexpected when I wake up to check the Sox scores and today was no different.

David Holmberg was tossed the keys by Ricky Renteria for the final game of the series.

It was all quiet on the pond until the 4th inning when Matt Davidson opened the scoring with a solo shot to left. This was the 4th game that Matt has hit a home run in. Sox 1 and Baltimore 0

Top of the 5th and Baltimore tied up the score at 1 all.

The Sox did the major damage in the bottom of the 6th when, with Davidson and Sanchez already on the pond, Melky’s single to center got the boys home for a 3 to 1 Sox lead. Kevan Smith with a bunt single, Melky on 1st and Anderson walked to fill the pond. Jose Abreu would walk to keep the pond full and extend the Sox lead to 4 to 1. Leury Garcia with a sac fly to center brings Melky home for a 5 to 1 Sox lead.

Baltimore would add 1 in the top of the ninth but David Robertson would lock up the office for a 5 to 2 Sox win.

Pack your travel bag as the Sox are back on the road, first stop in Toronto and then to Minnesota.

After the day’s events the Sox hold at 6 games out of first.
