Sox Pitching Gets Pummeled Around in Loss to Brewers

The Red Sox headed into Milwaukee for an interleague series with the Brewers.  It was a nice time to see Travis Shaw again.  The Sox had Drew Pomeranz on the mound vs. Wily Peralta for the Brewers.   Pomeranz was coming off a couple strong outings, but he wouldn’t be able to say the same last night.  Pomeranz didn’t make it to the 5th inning and the Brewers scored 6 runs off of him.   The Sox bats started a comeback, but the Brewers bats got all over the bullpen as well.

The Sox struck first when Mookie Betts hit a solo homer to start the game.   That joy was short lived as the Brewers tagged Pomeranz with 5 runs in the bottom of the inning.  Thames hit a 2 run homer to take the lead and then added a few more with  an RBI single from Travis Shaw and a 2 run homer from Broxton.  Sox 1-5.  Pomeranz settled down until the bottom of the 4th when he gave up an RBI single to Arcia.  Sox 1-6.   The Sox started to battle back in the top of the 5th when they scored 3 runs in the inning.  Betts and Pedroia both hit RBI doubles to chase Peralta from the game.  Sox 3-6.  The Sox got an additional run against the Brewers’ pen when Benintendi hit an RBI double.  Sox 4-6.

Fernando Abad came out and pitched a scoreless 5th inning before handing the ball over to Heath Hembree.  Hembree found himself in some trouble when he gave up an RBI single to Arcia and then a 2 run RBI double to Franklin.  Sox 4-9.  The Sox got one of those runs back in the top of the 7th when Benintendi hit an RBI single to score Bogaerts.  Sox 5-9.  The Brewers ended up scoring two in the bottom of the 7th when Broxton hit a 2 run RBI triple against Ben Taylor.  Sox 5-11.   The Sox returned the favor when they scored two runs in the top of the 8th.   Mookie Betts hit an RBI double to score both Rutledge and Marrero.  Sox 7-11.  Joe Kelly finished off the game by pitching the 8th, however the Brewers easily coasted to victory.
