The Red Sox secured a much-needed win against Seattle at their home game on Tuesday thanks to the efforts of Durand, Verdugo, and Yoshida. The team had been facing a tough situation, having lost four games in a row and only winning one of their last seven. The odds didn’t seem to be in their favor with Nick Pivetta against Luis Castillo, but the hitters stepped up to the plate.
Pivetta played well for most of the game, but faltered in the fourth run. However, the team managed to tie the game with some impressive hits from Yoshida, Verdugo, and Turner. Triston Casas even hit a home run to bring the score to 4-0 by the end of the first inning.
While Pivetta struggled in the later innings, the bullpen held on strong. The team managed to score two more runs in the eighth inning, making it a comfortable 9-4 victory. Despite the win, the team still has issues to address, but fans were relieved to see a game where the lead never felt like it would shrink.
Overall, the win was an important one for the team. The players will need to continue their strong performance if they hope to turn their losing streak around and start winning more games.
