Sox Pound 16 Hits, Beat Twins 8-1 [VIDEO]
Xander Bogaerts led the Red Sox 16-hit attack with a 3-run homer, four total hits and four RBI in an 8-1 win Friday night over the Minnesota Twins.
While the Sox pounded out the hits, knuckleballer Steven Wright did his thing - 7.1 innings, no earned runs and an ERA that drops to 2.09.
Dustin Pedroia had three hits. Jackie Bradley Jr. had two hits and two RBI.
The Sox are 35-25 and with the Orioles loss Friday night, the Sox climb back within one game of first place in the AL East.
