Monday night at Fenway Park, Toronto Blue Jays wrestled the Red Sox. Red Sox went ahead with a 10-8 victory over Blue Jays. Michael Chavis understood what Toronto starter Trent Thornton was following.
He laid off a 2-and-2–seamer above the zone to work the count full. Then Thornton went ahead with another high heater, and Davis did what he had to do. Chavis, the rookie, fouled the ball straight back. By doing so, he won a pitch to hit.
Afterward, Thornton turned loose a 93-mile-per-hour heater in the young infielder. Chavis destroyed it by launching his first career slam 421 feet to center. This allowed the Red Sox to play even tighter to earn a 10-8 victory over the Blue Jays.
The Red Sox continued with their habit of ambushing opposing starters. By doing so, they were able to claim one first-inning run in eleven of their 14 contests. Andrew Benintendi gave Red Sox a 1-0 advantage when he lines a bases-loaded single to the right. This set stage for Chavis blast to put Red Sox up 5-0.
Even the Red 5-0 lead seemed venerable; Red Sox starter allowed two runs in the top of the second on a Billy McKinney homer into the home bullpen on a 90mph. When the Jays fought their way to 5-4, the Red Sox then delivered another five runs in the third making the game more open.
Freddy Galvis drove two runs, which narrowed the gap to 10-8. In the end, Red Sox claimed a victory over the Blue Jays. The Red Sox are excellent once again.
