BREAKING: Sox Display Actual Offense, Beat Cubs, 5-4

The rumors were true—the 2017 Carmine Hose can actually hit the baseball. Not only that, they scored runs in the first inning—five to be exact. That tally proved to be just enough as the Red Sox outlasted the World Series Champions, 5-4. After falling behind 1-0 on a mammoth Kris Bryant HR (watched from the stands by his Medford-born Dad), Andrew Benintendi tied it with his own solo balst—igniting the five-run uprising. Drew Pomeranz was just good enough to keep things relatively in check—going six solid innings and giving up just two earned runs. The bullpen effort was a bit shaky, but proved just good enough, as Craig Kimbrel struck out the side again in the 9th for his eighth save. Multiple hit games were put in by: Hanley Ramirez, Dustin Pedroia, Christian Vazquez and Marco Hernandez.
