Our hopes were brought way up before the All-Star break after the Red Sox rattled off 6 wins in a row. Not going to lie, I thought they had turned it around. So far, I have been wrong.
The Red Sox lost to a struggling Angels team again Sunday, 3-2.
Runs were scarce and the scoring didn’t start until the fourth inning when Simmons launched a solo homer to put the Angels up 1-0.
The Red Sox would answer in the fifth after a two out RBI single from Deven Marrero which would tie the game up at 1 a piece.
In the very next inning the Red Sox would finally take the lead after Hanley absolutely CRUSHED a ball 434 ft. That shot put Boston up 2-1. Unfortunately, that wouldn’t last long.
Trout came up in the bottom of the sixth and did Trout things as he went yard to tie it up at 2.
In the seventh, the Angels gained the lead after Valbuena homered and that made the score, 3-2. That would inevitably be the final score of this one after the Red Sox proved once again incapable of scoring runs.
Frustrations must be building for Porcello after another decent outing with absolutely no run support. Yes, it wasn’t the best performance, but it was definitely good enough to win a game.
The Red Sox offense was capable of coming up with 2 runs and scoring only 3 on Saturday. The inconsistency with this offense is still very well among us. But some recent news may fix this.
Dave Dombrowski has announced that Rafael Devers will be called up to the Red Sox from Triple-A. He’s definitely capable enough with the bat to potentially make a difference, but there is some worry with his glove. It definitely could use work and may not be major league ready, but after all, he is young and it can be improved. He will get a start on Tuesday says Dombrowski.
I feel like I say this a lot but, hopefully the Red Sox can turn it around and become more consistent. Boston is still in first.
