After a series against the Astros that was marked by sluggish offense, the bats came alive in today’s game versus the Blue Jays. It was an electrifying 12-2 victory, which saw four Boston hitters go deep. David Price notched the victory in his return from the injured list.
On the last note, Price pitched five innings of two-run baseball. However, the runs did not count against the left-hander because they were predicated on a Michael Chavis error. He also struck out four and walked none. Price exited with just 67 pitches.
The offense was the other MVP in this one. They tagged starter Edwin Jackson for six runs. In total, they tallied 16 hits with each member of the lineup getting at least one.
The aforementioned homers came off the bats of Michael Chavis, Jackie Bradley Jr. (!), Rafael Devers and Xander Bogaerts. Chavis’ marks his 9th long ball of the season, which has come in just 26 games. Meanwhile, JBJ hit his first homerun of the 2019 season. Like everyone else, I’m ready for a JBJ hot streak to start.
The Boston Red Sox take on the Toronto Blue Jays at 7:07 p.m. eastern time Tuesday for Game Two. Eduardo Rodriguez will get the start, and the team will likely face rookie-phenom Vladimir Guerrero Jr. for the first time.
