The Red Sox offensive was pretty excited on the seventh inning Wednesday night.
With six singles, four doubles and a triple, Boston dropped an 11-spot in Marlins in seventh on the way to a 14-6 pounding of Miami at Fenway Park.
Boston played all night from behind and could not quite catch Miami until the bats woke up, allowing the Sox to complete the short two-game set.
David Price only took three innings before leaving the game with a left wrist bruise after drilling in the wrist with a comebacker. The Bullpen took over the next six innings, gave up three earned runs and stroked three.
With the victory, the Red Sox improved to 92-41
Here's how everything collapsed:
GAME IN ONE WORD
And many of them. The Red Sox pushed only three over the plate through the first six innings until 11 of them came in that explosive seventh.
ON THE PUSH
– Price gave up runs in two of the three innings he hit and knocked out three.
The Marlins took a 1-0 lead in the second minute after Derek Dietrich jumped on an 85 mph turn and was sent into the deep right field.
Miami expanded its leadership for the third year when J.T. Realmuto smashed an RBI double-to-center field, then scored the next on a Starlin Castro single bat to make it 3-1.
Price rose from the inning, but at the expense of itself. Austin Dean drilled a liner directly into the pitcher and hit him in the wrist. Price completed that first, but was removed from the game.
– Hector Velazquez came in clean and finished neat fourth, but got into trouble in the fifth race after Castro drove an RBI single in Miami's fourth round to give the team a run of two runs.
After leaving the sixth inning unscathed, his night ended on the seventh with a walk and a single.
– Tyler Thornburg relieves Velazquez and gives an RBI single to Realmuto, who leads the Finns 5: 3. The run was charged Velazquez.
– Ryan Brasier gave Dean a home run on the eighth round.
– Drew Pomeranz eliminated the ninth and collected a strikeout.
IN THE BATTER'S BOX
– Eduardo Nunez tied the game by one in the second inning and won a 12-pitch at-bat by leading a solo home run over the Green Monster.
– Down 3: 1 in the third, Mookie Betts, who has been in a minor crisis of late, sent an absolute rocket into the Green Monster and finished his 17-game round trip drought.
– The Red Sox were thrown back in the sixth round after Back-to-Back went to bed and Andrew Benintendi paved the way for J.D. Martinez had leveled to raise the middle to 4: 3.
– Boston were the runners-up after two minutes when Nunez scored the seventh goal with a double before Ian Kinsler scored a double with Wall-Ball. Blake Swihart, who scored with a pinch of punch for Sandy Leon, went to the left and brought the Sox in the middle, before Jackie Bradley Jr. cracked the game with an RBI double to five.
Betts then gave Boston a lead when he hit the third doubles in the innings and drove into Swihart and Bradley. The damage came again and again, as Brock Holt, who made his first flattery at night as a pinch-hitter, rammed a stand-up triple down to the right and drove for the Red Sox in the eighth run.
Xander Bogaerts played the fun with an RBI single for the 9-5 mark before Nunez, for the second time in the inning, single and gave Boston double-digit runs. Kinsler followed suit with his own RBI single. Swihart drove two more as he tripled in his second at-bat of the stanza for a 13-5 lead.
The hits continued as Bradley drove a single in his second run of the innings. The frame was finally ended after Benintendi had fused into a double, but the damage was because Boston had a run of 11.
– Betts and Nunez lead to Boston with three goals.
– Holt, Kinsler, Swihart and Bradley had two hits while Martinez and Bogaerts each had one.
– Leon, Steve Pearce and Benintendi have become hitless.
