Huston Street pitching for the Angels.Betts took the first two pitches for strikes in his ninth-inning at-bat, so Boston was one strike away from a three-run defeat when they rallied!
Jackie Bradley walked.
Aaron Hill singled to center, Bradley to second.
Ryan Hanigan struck out swinging.
Brock Holt struck out swinging.
Mookie Betts singled to right center, Bradley scored, Hill to third.
Dustin Pedroia homered to center, Hill, Betts and Pedroia scored.
Xander Bogaerts homered to left center, Bogaerts scored.
Jose Alvarez relieved Street.
David Ortiz flied out to left.
Brad Ziegler allowed a one-out single in the bottom of the ninth, but got a game-ending double play on the next batter.
The Red Sox have won only three of their last 10 games, but they are a mere 1.5 games behind the Orioles. (They would play in the Wild Card game if the season ended today.)
Maybe today's victory can kick off a long hot streak. On to Seattle!
