Another inning, another homer seems to be the mantra for Boston so far Thursday, as they’ve added their fourth bomb in the fourth inning to take a 6-0 lead over the Rangers.
Again, the homer came with a baserunner—this time Carl Crawford, who again had his toe-tap going at the plate, lining a single right back up the middle to lead off the inning. And again it was the first inning that got Alexi Ogando in trouble, this time delivered to Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Again the pitch was outside, and again it was knocked out to left field for a bomb. It’s just getting to be repetitive at this point.
Andrew Miller “bounced back” from his most difficult inning of the night with another easy one in the fourth. Striking out Josh Hamilton for the second time in a row to start things, Miller sat the side down in order to hold the Rangers scoreless.
