Mookie Defense Helps Sox Win Again [VIDEO]
Make it 10 wins in the last 12 games for the Red Sox. And, make it a 7-2 roadtrip so far for the the Sox. A tight 2-1 win over Tampa Bay last night with big contributions from Mookie Betts and Clay Buchholz.
Betts gunned down Kevin Kiermaier trying to stretch a double into a triple with a brilliant throw from rightfield for perhaps the game's biggest play.
Buchholz pitched a solid 6.1 innings, striking out a season high nine.
And, the bullpen combo of Robbie Ross, Brad Ziegler and Craig Kimbrel did its job.
The Sox offense managed just five hits but it all adds up to another win. Now 71-54, the Sox are still tied with Toronto for the lead in the AL East.
