Boston drew 10 walks on the night in their highest-scoring game since putting up 22 runs against the Seattle Mariners in August of 2015. J.D. Martinez did drive in two runs on the night and became the first player to reach 100 RBI this season. He now has 101 on the year.
Mookie Betts also had a big night after hitting for the cycle in Thursday's loss against the Toronto Blue Jays, going 3-for-4 with two walks and three RBI. With the Yankees' loss to the Rangers, the Red Sox now hold a nine-game lead for first place in the AL East. Boston has now won 11 of 13 overall, and scored at least 19 runs on the road for the first time since 1994.
Nathan Eovaldi struggled for the first time since coming over from the Tampa Bay Rays, as he gave up eight runs on 10 hits over 2.2 innings. Only four of those runs were earned, this after throwing 15 scoreless innings in his first two starts with the team. Drew Pomeranz earned his second win, and first since moving to the bullpen, as it was his first relief appearance since 2016. Miguel Castro took his seventh loss for the O's, as he walked three of the five batters he faced.
Baltimore dropped to 2-11 against the Red Sox this season, despite getting home runs from Chris Davis, Tim Beckham, and Mark Trumbo. These two teams will play a doubleheader on Saturday, before the series finale on Sunday afternoon.
