Jet Blue Park, Fort Myers, Florida – 3/2/17
Red Sox 19 – Rays 2
Holly hell, what happen down in Florida yesterday. I guess the Red Sox must of been reading my blog about their lack of scoring runs. The boys of Red scored 19 runs off 20 hits. Home-runs by Bradly (2) Ramirez, Brentz, Selsky. The Sox knocked Rays pitcher De Leon out of the game in the 1st inning.
The Sox pitching started to settle down as well. Solid start by Rodriguez going 2 innings and giving up no hits and got striking out 2. The entire pitching group used yesterday only gave up 2 runs off of 7 hits. The Sox actually played yesterday like a team the has their payroll. If they can do this consistently they will be in good shape. I’m not even talking 19 runs, just steady hitting and pitching, that’s all i ask for!
The Red Sox play again Friday 3/3/17 at 1:05 PM EST against the Atlanta Braves at Champions Stadium in Disney World. Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello will take on Braves pitcher Julio Teheran. This will be Porcello’s first start of the preseason. The Red Sox do not play the Braves in the regular season this year.
Also to end this post, I know I talked about it yesterday but the Citco sign needs out help. Rumor has it that the rent for the Citco sign will go up to over 2 million a year. This is tragic to any Red Sox fan who has grown to associate Fenway Park and baseball with the giant flashing red gas station brand sign at Kenmore square. I ask all fans of baseball to please go to https://www.change.org/p/help-protect-a-boston-icon and take a second to sign and Save The Citco Sign!
