Red Sox Bounce Back with Strong Pitching Performance

By on May 13, 2015



redsoxWade Miley versus Sonny Gray did not look like a good matchup for the Red Sox on Wednesday afternoon. The Oakland A’s ace, Gray had been 4-0 entering the day. While he was on the losing end today, his 7 innings pitched, three hits, one earned run, and nine strikeouts, still has him atop the American League pitching leaders.

Miley, on the other hand, as well as the rest of his rotation mates, entered today’s contest with the worst ERA in all of baseball.

Sometimes, you pitch well and just can’t get a W. Gray actually lowered his ERA to 1.65 in the loss.

A wild pitch and two singles in the second inning proved to be enough for the Red Sox on this day. An error in the eighth inning led to the second Boston run.

Junichi Tazawa worked a perfect inning-and-a-third before handing it over to Koji Uehara. With the win, Boston took two-out-of-three from Oakland and will now head to Seattle for a four-game series at Safeco Field.

Oakland now has the second lowest win total in the American League, 13.
