Sox Remain Unbeaten at Home with 6-4 Win Over Rays

Red Sox

On a gorgeous Sunday afternoon at Fenway, the Red Sox continued to roll over their division enemies by winning their third straight with a 6-4victory over Tampa Bay. With some help from the bullpen, Felix Doubront picked up his first win of the season after going 5.0 innings.

Doubront Lasts Long Enough

Just like his previous start, Doubront went 5.0 innings. This time around, he allowed 4 ER on 9 H with 7 K’s. Home plate umpire, Brian Gorman, was very tough on his calls today as Doubront repeatedly peppered the outside of the strikezone with fastballs to little avail. Nevertheless, Doubront was effective enough and gave the Sox offense a chance to win the game.

Cody Ross Blasts Another, Mike Aviles Flashes Power

RF Cody Ross homered for the 2nd straight game (his only hit) and drove in three. Mike Aviles looked good in the leadoff spot and added his first homer of the season in the 7th which gave Boston some insurance and a 6-4 lead. David Ortiz led all hitters with a 3-4 day.

Bullpen

After Doubront’s exit, the bullpen shut the door for 4.0 stellar innings. Scott Atchison, Vicente Padilla, Franklin Morales and Alfredo Aceves didn’t allow a run over their four innings and gave up just four hits and recorded four strikeouts. Aceves worked a perfect 9th inning for his 2nd save of the season.

What’s On Tap

Tomorrow is Marathon Monday in Boston and that brings the Patriot’s Day morning game to Fenway. Daniel Bard will get the start against James Shields at 11:05 am.
