It took extra innings for one of the most power laden offenses in the Majors, the Boston Red Sox to complete a comeback in game one of a two game series. The rubber game begins tonight at 9:15 pm.
Xander Bogaerts slammed a tie-breaking two run single off of closer Santiago Casilla. Bogaerts also had single RBI.
“He gives himself an opportunity to cover the whole plate against a lot of pitchers,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said of Bogaerts. “He’s going to put the bat on the ball.”
The Giants were without their Three P’s, Pagen (DL List), Pence (DL List) and Posey (scratch), directly leading to their four losses in the past six games. Posey will most likely miss tonight’s game as well.
