Jet Blue Park, Fort Myers, Florida – 3/5/17
Red Sox 11 – Braves 1
A great game for Red Sox pitcher Kyle Kendrick today going 4 innings and only giving up a walk. This is a promising outing for the Sox who’s pitching for 2017 is a giant question mark. Creating a solid bullpen seems to be the focus and these potential cast of pitchers are all fighting for a starring role in the big leagues.
The game was a close contest until the 7th inning where the Red Sox offense exploded and brought in 8 runs. In total the Sox got 11 runs on 12 hits and with the win, brought their spring training record to 4-6. I myself have been feeling better over the last 11 days and hopefully this is a sign of good things to come. Also in the game, the Sox stole a base 3 times (Bradly Jr, Hernandez and Lin) showing they can play some small ball when need be.
The Red Sox play again Monday 3/6/17 at 1:05 PM EST against the Houston Astros at Ball Park of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach Florida. Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale k will take on Astros pitcher Chris Devenski. This will be Chris Sale’s first start of spring training.
The save the Citco Sign petition right now is 10K and climbing. 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!
