Maybe having Jerry Remy back in the NESN broadcast booth is working as a good luck charm for the Red Sox. On Friday night Boston hitters plated 9 runs against Tampa Bay and Drew Pomeranz picked up his 15th win of the season. On Saturday the Sox sent ace pitcher Chris Sale to the mound to face the Rays. Over Sale’s last 5 games against Tampa he has posted a 4-1 with a 2.75 ERA striking out 56 hitters. With the bats hitting the peak of one their oh-so-common roller coaster rides this season, it may be Sale who needs them than the other way around. Although coming into the game 15-5 & posting a 2.85 ERA, Sale is just 2-3 in his last 7 starts owning an un-Sale-like ERA of 4.57.
FINAL SCORE: RED SOX 9 -- TAMPA BAY 0
