After Brock Holt struck out against lefty Zach Duke, Jackie Bradley Jr. drew a walk to set up a two-out, full-count, two-run double by Mookie Betts that ended the game in front of a roaring crowd that was on its feet all inning.
“It’s coming down to the final months and we have to play good as a team,” said Bogaerts, whose .485 OPS from July 4 through Monday ranked last in the majors.
But when Rosenthal threw a 91-mph heater low and on the plate in the ninth last night, Bogaerts wanted to see what happened if he turned on it.
The Sox remain 41⁄2 games up in the American League East with an off-day today and the Yanks coming to town tomorrow.
It’s been hard to tell what to make of starter Eduardo Rodriguez since he returned from a month layoff due to another knee dislocation, his third in less than two years.
