The Boston Red Sox improved to 8-11 on the season with a 7-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday night. Watch above for highlights from the game.
Xander Bogaerts went 4-for-4 with an RBI in the win. He improved his batting average to .397, which entering Thursday is the best mark in the American League. Rafael Devers went 2-for-4 with an RBI of his own, while J.D. Martinez went 2-for-5 and drove in a run.
Red Sox starter Michael Wacha delivered his best outing of the season, allowing just one run over six innings while striking out five. Four different relievers combined to pitch four shutout innings to seal the victory.
The Red Sox had lost four in a row and six out of seven prior to Wednesday’s win. They are just 4-8 against AL East teams to start the 2022 season.
Up Next: The Sox have one more game in Toronto on Thursday. They could get a boost in the coming days just based on their opponent: they get the last-place Baltimore Orioles for three games at Camden Yards, starting Friday.
