Could A Lucky Bounce Raise Red Sox From Doldrums — Mitch's Sports Report

The Arizona Diamondbacks celebrate after defeating the Boston Red Sox in a baseball game Saturday

"It's tough to keep coming up with adjectives for Ramon's throwing but it's one of a kind". Jackie Bradley Jr and Mookie Betts admitted the should have been caught. That's the bottomline. Like I said, I take pride in that stuff: details. "He's pretty much thrown everybody out". He's picked up right where he left off from past year.

The Red Sox, of course, knocked off the Los Angeles Dodgers in October to capture their fourth title since 2004.

"The three plays were bang-bang plays, but that one right there can't happen and he knows it". He came up to me, and how great of a player he is, he makes mistakes. "He came up to me and was like, 'That's my fault'".

Why would anyone challenge Laureano?

It was a solid win for Boston, but they will definitely need the starting pitching to step up so they can find ways to win games early and not need to mount a comeback every time on the diamond. "The guy's got a cannon and he's laser accurate". The NY Mets are now 5-1 after beating the Miami Marlins 6-4 behind 14 strike-outs from ace Jacob deGrom, who wasn't satisfied dominating the Marlins from the mound and added a towering home run to help his own cause in the win.

Not only will the Red Sox be celebrating their latest World Series trophy, but they will likely also have some Lombardi Trophies in the house. The following inning, Piscotty's ground rule double brought in another two runs, giving him five RBI's for the day on the way to a four hit performance. Martinez connected for his third home run in the third, making it 3-0. Josh Phegley led off with a double, Marcus Semien walked, and Stephen Piscotty homered to deep center to tie the game.

The head coach is nearly always the fall guy whenever things go wrong even stuff out of their control like injuries. Warriors superstar Kevin Durant had a simple answer for his team's massive first-quarter lead against the Lakers.

"It's a bad decision and he knows it", Cora said. "But last year was last year. We have to play better, that's the bottom line".

Trivino finished the sixth inning, Joakim Soria worked the seventh and Liam Hendricks finished it off in the eighth and ninth.

Following the game, the A's hit the road for a ten game road trip. By the end of the game they'd struck out a total of 18 times, which sets an unwanted franchise record for most strikeouts in a 9-inning game. The good news? Steve Pearce has been activated from the disabled list in place of Sam Travis ahead of today's game. Manager Bob Melvin said the move was precautionary. Utilityman Chad Pinder took Chapman's spot at third.

Here is the A's lineup for Thursday's series finale, with star third baseman Matt Chapman getting the day off.

Red Sox: RHP Rick Porcello (0-1, 13.50 ERA) will start Friday's series opener in Arizona.
