Poor Pitching Results in Red Sox Loss to the A’s 7-0 Monday Night
Last year, the Boston Red Sox ran away from their competition going 17-2 in their 1st 19 games. Fast forward to 2019 and the Boston Red Sox are 1-4 after another poor pitching performance, this time from David Price. The Red Sox lost to Oakland 7-0
Price went 6 innings, and allowed 5 hits, but 3 of them were homers. He gave up 4 runs, while striking out 9 and walking 2. Tyler Thornburg pitched a scoreless 7th inning but Heath Hembree gave up 3 runs, 2 of which were earned on 4 hits in the 8th inning. 1 of those hits was a home run. Red Sox pitching has allowed 15 homers in 5 games.
The Red Sox bats were quiet Monday night into Tuesday, as they only had 4 hits. Xander Bogaerts who just signed a 6 year $120 million extension was 2-3 with a double.
The Red Sox are in last place in the AL East, 3.0 games behind Tampa Bay. The Red Sox and A's will play the 2nd game of the 4 game series Tuesday night. Chris Sale 0-1 will take the mound for the Red Sox. The pregame starts at 9:05 and first pitch at 10:07 on AM 1370 WDEA.
