After batting through the order in the first, the Sox went down 1-2-3 on 12 pitches in the second inning as Pineda adjusted well. It speaks to the all-encompassing nature of Boston’s transformation over the past two months, one culminating Tuesday in their first five-game winning streak of the entire season. “We’re all very proud of that”.
After their chat, Lovullo posed for a photo with the president that was taken by new Red Sox general manager Mike Hazen. He could clinch the wild card as he prepares to start the play-in game on Tuesday, October 6, that still is most likely going to be played in the Bronx. Their record is now 77-80. For a team that was 52-66 on August. 17, that would be quite an accomplishment. “The last couple of weeks, that’s something that we’ve been talking about”. “I think we need to get him out there. That’s our little goal in here”. “I adjusted after the first inning and threw the ball well”. The teams scored 10 runs on nine hits, seven of them for extra bases. “Offense came out swinging the bats great against a really tough pitcher who has been throwing the ball well in Pineda and being able to pitch deep in the game with that run support, especially after what happened in the first inning was, kind of took a lot of pride in that”.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Asdrubal Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning to lift Tampa Bay to a win over Miami at Tropicana Field. They had a man on in the second, two on in the fourth (as mentioned above), and one on in the seventh, but brought no more runs home.
Porcello was proud of how well he recovered.
“He made a few really good adjustments, started to work a changeup in the mix and a curveball when he needed it”, Boston interim manager Torey Lovullo said.
In seven starts since coming off the disabled list, Porcello is 4-3 with a 3.22 earned run average. He has struck out a batter per inning, with five punchouts to every walk in that time.
Relax, so says their leader. After Pedroia flied out, Bogaerts picked up his 193rd hit of the season on an infield single to third to load the bags. He drove in Boston’s final runs when he connected off reliever Bryan Mitchell in the eighth. He is 0-2 with a 5.60 ERA in three starts against New York this season. “I don’t know if those balls I hit are home runs anywhere else”. Carlos Beltran hit an RBI double, and Dustin Ackley had a two-run homer. He had the same workout clothes that I did, he just had 15 security guards that were watching his workout.
