Sox Take Advantage Of Brave Blunder In Win

Juan Uribe is usually a pretty solid all-round third baseman. Last night, however, Uribe's dropped foul popup gave new life to a big Red Sox inning in a 5-2 Boston victory. Clay Buchholz pitched seven solid innings—giving up just two (unearned) runs for his fourth win of the year. Buchholz lowered his ERA to 3.87. The offense was keyed by Brock Holt (2 hits), Mookie Betts (2 hits and an RBI), Xander Bogaerts (RBI) and Alejandro DeAza (2 hits and an RBI). Boston ended up splitting the silly four game home-and-home set with the Bravos. Now on to Kansas City to face the 2015 American League All-Star Team.
