In a stunning upset, words mean things.
The Sox jumped out to a lead and Nick Pivetta turned in a historic relief appearance in an easy win.
Alex Verdugo and James Paxton come up big for Boston’s fifth straight win.
The 10th inning was a disaster after James Paxton’s strong start and several good chances gone bad, and then the rain hit and went on for long enough for everyone to watch the NBA season end.. and only then did the Sox finally lose.
If you ignore the bad stuff, the Red Sox can do no wrong!
The Sox fell, again, to the Rays and AL Cy Young favorite Shane McClanahan.
