Pedey And Pom Pace Red Sox To 5-1 Win Over Blue Jays

Drew Pomeranz just keeps on pitching well—and well above expectations. The lefty went 6.2 innings last night giving up just three hits and one un-earned run in a 5-1 Boston victory. It was his 10th win of the 2017 season.  On the offensive side, Dustin Pedroia continued his Jumpin' July—going 2-3 with a walk and knocking in three runs. Chris Young continued to shine in the DH role—going 2-4 and Mookie Betts scored two of Boston's five runs. Deven Marrero delivered a two-run single early to help set the tone for the night. Pomeranz was not fully sharp, but he wriggled out of several jams with double-play balls and guile. The Boston win—coupled with losses by both Tampa and The Pinstriped Posers—stretched the Red Sox division lead to three full games.
