Hot-hitting Bogaerts leaves Red Sox-Rays game with injury

Hot-hitting Bogaerts leaves Red Sox-Rays game with injury

After losing Game 1 in St.Petersburg to the Rays, who staged their own devastating six-run eighth that day, it's as if the Red Sox awoke to the reality that they were standing over a barrel of helpless fish.

Going into this season, the Boston Red Sox had an alarming number of question marks lingering over a team that won back-to-back division titles. "It's normal. But not too many people are noticing the other ones that have been caught".

"We can do that", Cora said. "Now he's doing it with power".

Their starters have thrown 22 innings and have only given up four earned runs. He is hitting.368 (14 of 38) this season with two homers and nine RBIs. Rafael Devers also connected.

The win pushed the team to a franchise-best 8-1 to start the season.

"We've been on and off".

"We can do that often. We feel that we're a good offensive team, and it was just a matter of time". The shortstop got hurt while sliding down into the Tampa Bay dugout and will have tests Monday. In six games against divisional opponents, Red Sox starters have an ERA of 1.17 and the bullpen's ERA is 4.58. He retired 20 of 21 batters - and 17 in a row - after giving up two runs in the first. An 8-1 record is nearly to be expected when they play these teams, and though the team could easily be 9-0, 8-1 is not disappointing. "I said it (Saturday), they're playing, they don't really know what's going on. But we're making the routine plays". But I think they might have turned the volume up. He drove in a career-high six runs in Saturday's 10-3 win over the Rays.

"It's frustrating, it's embarrassing", he said.

One point of interest today will be whether CF Kevin Kiermaier is back in the lineup after missing Saturday's game - and staying back at the hotel - due to what the Rays said were "flu-like symptoms".

If there was ever a time to hang their heads, this was it for the Red Sox. Cora also said that it's "most likely" that he'd return to the rotation if things went well. He recorded the first two outs of the sixth inning before leaving with a runner on first. "The last AL team with a sub-1.00 starter ERA through seven games was the 1918 Philadelphia Athletics (0.93)".

Brad Miller drove in a pair of runs and Denard Span was 2-for-4) with an RBI for Tampa Bay, which dropped its seventh straight and hasn't won since a 6-4 victory over Boston in the season opener on March 29.

Boston's pitching staff has given up 2.4 runs per game overall this year as a unit.

Tampa Bay took the lead in the third inning when Rob Refsnyder got aboard via a one-out walk and Matt Duffy followed by reaching on a sacrifice bunt attempt. OF Andrew Benintendi and a few other starters made a decision to hit inside instead. He gave up two runs in the bottom of the ninth and the Red Sox handed Andrew Kittredge his second loss of the young season in the 12th. The Red Sox brought out local 2018 Winter Olympic medal winners for the ceremonial first pitch and had former star David Ortiz join three-time Gold medal Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, of Needham, Mass., for the traditional pregame "Play Ball!"

Rodriguez, who has recovered from offseason knee surgery, is expected to be on a strict limit of between 85 to 90 pitches Sunday, according to Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald.
