Jackie Robinson Day At Fenway
Dustin Pedroia slides home with the winning run in the bottom of the 9th as the Sox beat Tampa Bay 3-2 on Patriots Day at Fenway Park. It was the second walk off win in three games for the Red Sox.
After Andrew Bailey allowed TB to score a run in the top of the 9th to tie the game 2-2, Pedroia worked a walk. Then Mike Napoli hit one off the green monster and Pedroia scored all the way from first base. Sox win 3-2 and are now 8-4 on the young season.
Starter Ryan Dempster was great. He gave up one run and two hits over seven innings. Dempster struck out 10 Rays hitters and walked just two.
Now the Sox head to Cleveland for three games starting Tuesday night. The Indians are managed by former Sox skipper Terry Francona.
