What’s even more satisfying than hitting five home runs and humiliating the Mariners is the fact that the Red Sox were down 5-1 at one point yet they didn’t just roll over and play possum.
Allen Webster absolutely sucked, allowing seven runs in 2.1 innings but it didnt matter. David Ortiz, Mike Napoli, Shane Victorino all hit home runs and Dustin Pedroia hit two. The Red Sox violated the Mariners. Ortiz went 4 for 5 and Jackie Bradley Jr hit his Major League home run of his career.
The Red Sox now have 55 wins on the season which is the most of any team in Major League Baseball. And to think, just yesterday I was talking people off of the Tobin Bridge.
