Andover High Schools's Ryan Hanigan had three hits and four RBIs in Boston's come-from-behind 10-9 win over the Astros today. Xander Bogaerts smacked a long three-run HR, and Mookie Betts clouted a game-winning RBI triple in the wacky, error-filled contest. Hanley Ramirez and Josh Rutledge also joined in on the fun—each collecting three hits. Once again, Sean O'Sullivan pitched bad enough to lose—and didn't. He went just 4 1/3, giving up six runs. O'Sullivan was designated for assignment after the win. Boston held a seemingly-safe 8-4 lead, but Houston clawed back to take a 9-8 advantage. Then, this offensive juggernaut (which scored at least ten runs five times in this seven-game homestand) kicked in. Boston is now in a virtual tie for first place in the AL East. On to Kansas City!
