E-Rod Shines, Mookie & JBJ Slug, Red Sox Win, 6-3

Mookie Goes Yard
Eduardo Rodriguez is on a run—delivering another "quality start" that makes you think he might become the top-line starter the Orioles though he would be. Last night, E-Rod went six solid innings, giving up just three runs on five hits and striking out five in the 6-3 win. The offense was supplied mostly by Mookie Betts (lead-off HR, 2 RBIs) and Jackie Bradley, Jr. (2-3, HR)—along with Dustin Pedroia (key go-ahead RBI). The on-again/off-again bullpen did its job—going three innings an giving up just one hit. Craig Kimbrel continued his ninth-inning dominance with an 8-pitch save. This was a solid win on the road against a surging NL team—a great way to start the road trip.
