To say the Boston Red Sox were scuffling at home would be a slight understatement. But lest we forget it’s April and not September. A win on Wednesday would be a nice way to kick off a road trip that starts in the Bronx on Thursday night.
David Ortiz would make sure though that the Red Sox left with a smile on their face and W in their pocket.
A review of his three-run home run around Pesky Pole was upheld and that was the difference in the 4-2 win over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday at Fenway Park.
Jake Peavy started this one and picked up a no decision after allowing a run on three hits and four walks while striking out eight in 6.2 innings. Despite allowing a run in the top of the 8th, Andrew Miller picked up his first win of the season and Koji Uehara earned his second save of 2014.
