The Red Sox win a wild one thanks partially to a clutch hit from Michael Chavis in his first MLB plate appearance."That big inning came in the second after they went down in order in the first. This second inning was also where the impact of Timmons was most felt Joe Blanton Jersey , too, because Rays starter Charlie Morton was getting squeezed on some good pitches, and the frustration clearly kept building as the inning went on. The rally started, though, with the first two batters when J.D. Martinez poked a single through the middle and Xander Bogaerts drew a walk. Jackie Bradley Jr. would draw a one-out walk as well, and that would load the bases. Eventually, Len came up with two outs and the bases still full in a big spot, and Morton lost a pitch and hit the Red Sox catcher in the foot. That scored a run, and as we’d learn was more important, it kept the inning going. Andrew Benintendi came up next, and he got a first-pitch fastball up and away and he drove it just over the wall in left-center field for a grand slam. The Rays did challenge for fan interference, but the call stood and just like that it was a 5-0 lead for the Red Sox.The offense didn’t get much going after that, though, leaving things open for the Rays to chip away if Boston’s pitching allowed. Porcello, as mentioned, did a solid job of preventing that by allowing just the two, and heading into the bottom of the seventh it was all on the bullpen now. Hembree was back out there for that inning after getting the final out in the sixth. Things did not start well when Kevin Kiermaier gave Tampa their third triple of the game to start off the frame. After getting a big pop up , Hembree’s night was over and Bobby Poyner came on in relief. He did not do well. The lefty walked the first batter he saw before giving up yet another triple, this one plating two and cutting the Red Sox lead down to one. That brought on Marcus Walden in a big spot with a runner on third, one out and a one-run game. He got a big strikeout against the first batter he saw, and then struck out the next guy to to escape the jam. It was a huge, huge outing for the righty.Kim Klement-USA TODAY SportsIn the eighth, the Red Sox were looking to get some of those runs back and extend their lead back out beyond one. They got off to a good start, too, when Steve Pearce — who came in for Mitch Moreland after the latter left the game with back spasms — got to second on a botched fly ball by the Rays defense and Martinez followed that up with a walk. That brought Bogaerts to the plate, and he ripped a line drive up the middle. Unfortunately, Lowe made a tremendous leaping play, knocking the ball down and getting the double play. The second out at first was likely only possible because Bogaerts took a second to break out of the box. In the end, the Red Sox would get out of the inning without allowing the run.That brought Matt Barnes into the game for the bottom half of the inning, and the righty has been phenomenal for the Red Sox all year. He got into trouble here, though, throwing Yandy Diaz a fastball up and away. It really wasn’t a terrible pitch, as it was above the zone, but Diaz was ready for it. The Rays third baseman muscled it out the other way over the fence , and just like that we had a tie game. The righty came back and struck out each of the next three batters he saw to keep the game tied.We went into the top of the ninth and Bradley started things off with a bloop single. After Tzu-Wei Lin struck out on a fouled off bunt attempt, Michael Chavis stepped up to the plate to make his major-league debut in a tie game in the ninth against Jose Alvarado. Welcome to the bigs, kid. He got down to two strikes, but then he ripped a double out over Kiermaier’s head in center field, putting two in scoring position with one out for Benintendi. He hit a fly ball out to right-center field that was an out but deep enough to get Bradley home and Chavis to third. More importantly, it gave the Red Sox a 6-5 lead.Now, it was just up to Ryan Brasier to hold on and protect the one-run lead in the ninth. He gave up a single to the first batter he faced before getting two outs after that. However, with two outs Tommy Pham smoked a base hit back up the middle, and the tying run was in scoring position with the winning run at first for Willy Adames. Adames wouldn’t have a chance, though. Christian Vzquez, who came in after Chavis pinch hit fo Le贸n, had a play on with Pearce and they back-picked Pham at first base to end the game. Unbelievable way to end a baseball game.Somehow, some way, the Red Sox have a chance to finish off a sweep if they can get another win on Sunday. They’ll send David Price to the mound in that one to take on the red-hot Tyler Glasnow.

Apparently, a Noah Syndergaard vs. Homer Bailey pitching matchup qualifies as a lot — and perhaps it should — as the dueling arms have an ERA difference of 2.88.Monday Sharp Report: Pros Betting Mariners-Rangers and Astros-GiantsRead nowNew York Yankees (-191) at Chicago White Sox8:10 p.m. ETThree out of every four tickets on this game have been placed on the Yankees, making them tonight’s second-most popular side. They’ve also drawn 88% of dollars and have moved a hair from -190 to -191.Why the public loves the Yanks: The Yankees just dropped four straight to the Red Sox in Boston, and bettors are under the assumption that there’s no way they won’t turn it around against the Sox of the other color variety. While the Yanks have been busy losing, the White Sox have quietly won four in a row, which — to a public bettor — is all the more reason to expect things to turn around tonight.Chicago Cubs (-190) at Kansas City Royals8:15 p.m. ETThe Cubs are tonight’s most popular bet by a good amount. They’ve attracted 84% of bettors, but since those account for 77% of dollars Chicago has fallen from -200 to -190.Why the public loves Chicago: Kansas City’s win percentage is hovering just over .300 at this point, so they likely won’t be getting a public majority backing more than a couple times down the stretch this season. It certainly won’t be happening against the top team in the National League playing behind Cole Hamels, who threw five shutout innings with nine strikeouts in his first start with Chicago.
