It was more of the same for the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night, as they bullied the Colorado Rockies to a score of 10-3. This is Boston's fourth win in a row and the 13th in their past 15 at Fenway Park. Steven Wright threw seven strong innings, allowing three runs (two earned), while striking out seven and walking two batters. Wright continues to pitch like an ace, and now has an ERA of 2.52. Behind Wright, the Red Sox played fantastic defense, most noticeably from Jackie Bradley Jr., who threw out Carlos Gonzalez as he was trying to stretch a hit off the monster into a double.
Offensively, it was business as usual, as the Red Sox were able to push across 10 runs on 13 hits, led by Jackie Bradley Jr., Travis Shaw, Blake Swihart, and Marco Hernandez with multi-hit games. While the Red Sox broke up their 22-game home run streak, which was the longest streak in franchise history, two nights ago, Bogaerts launched a mammoth home run over the monster in the fourth inning, which was his fifth of the year in the hopes of starting a new streak. The Red Sox continue to chase Rockies starters out of the game early, as Bettis after 4.2 innings.
