Red Sox Go 'Triple Yard', Smite The Evil Ones, 5-3
The Red Sox kicked off the second-half in style—clouting three home runs in a 5-3 win over The Bronx Embalmers. Andover High School's Ryan Hanigan got the scoring started with a solo shot to left—followed by matching two-run shots by Travis Shaw and Xander Bogaerts. Bogie's round-tripper was a Matrix-Like swat of a high inside fastball that showed off his quick hands. Steven Wright stymied The Pinstriped Posers with a wickedly moving knuckler—going six innings and yielding three earned runs. The Sox bullpen (Brad Ziegler, Robby Ross, Jr., Koji Uehara) got nine outs to seal the victory. Boston stayed two games behind the victorious Orioles.
