Xander Bogaerts leaves with ankle injury

Irene MckinneyApr 09, 2018

Bogaerts was removed in the top of seventh inning Sunday against the Rays after sustaining an apparent left ankle injury when he slid into a protective railing near the Tampa Bay dugout, Sean McAdam of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.

The Boston hitters have put up 4.3 runs per outing, including 5.2 per game over their last five. On the other hand, the Red Sox have netted 3.4 units and are 2-4 ATS when facing a right-handed starting pitcher.

Six wins are six wins, no matter how you slice and dice them.

It will be interesting to see how Price pitches against better offenses, but with what he has shown so far this season, Red Sox fans should be happy and confident each time it is Price's turn to pitch. We feel we have a good offensive team. Andrew Kittredge (0-2) took the loss, throwing a pair of scoreless innings before running into trouble in the 12th.

After giving up two runs in the first inning, Porcello retired 20 of 21 batters, including 17 in a row. Carson Smith (1-1) pitched a scoreless inning for the win, and Craig Kimbrel got three outs for his third save.

MILWAUKEE - Ian Happ hit a tiebreaking two-run single during Chicago's four-run ninth. The teams have met five times already this season, with all four Boston victories by one run. Bogaerts was chasing an errant throw from J.D. Martinez that was trickling toward the Rays' dugout. While his power and high strikeout rate has yet to be tempered with patience at the plate and more developed pitch recognition, he was expected to continue climbing the rungs in the Red Sox' farm system and break into the majors sometime within the next two years. Expect the Red Sox to provide an update on Bogaerts' condition after the game.

Pitchers that got their throwing in were bundled up in right field.

Then the bottom of the eighth unfolded late Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park, and those of the chilled 31,979 in the stands who bothered to stick around were treated to the latest example of what looks like a Red Sox revival in 2018.

The Rays are just 1-7 SU and have gone 5-2 against the spread (ATS).

Robertson pitched 1 2/3 flawless innings and began his fifth appearance with runners at second and third after Adam Warren allowed a double down the right-field line to Trey Mancini.

In Saturday's victory - Boston's seventh in a row, Rick Porcello became the first Red Sox starter to allow more than one run in a start.
