Marlins Come Back in Extras, Pass By Red Sox

The Miami Marlins came back in the 10th inning to win 5-4 over the Boston Red Sox.  Dee Gordon tripled and Justin Bour singled him in after Martin Prado was intentionally walked.

The Red Sox had a 4-0 lead starting in the 3rd.  JBJ tripled, and Mookie singled him in.  Mookie Betts went 1-3 in his first game back.  Then JBJ singled in the 5th, and Mookie Betts reached on an error to knock Bradley Jr. in.  2-0.  Wright had sacrificed JBJ to second before it.  In the 6th, Bogaerts and Bigf Papi singled on, and Rusney Castillo knocked in two more runs, tripling.

But Wright plus the bullpen blew it.  J. T. Realmuto singled, then Ichiro walked, sending him to second.  Then Dee Gordon singled him in.  4-1.  Ichiro also scored.  4-2.  Dietrich walked, Bour walked, and Cole Gillespie singled to load the bases in the 7th.  Ichiro hit a sac fly.  4-3.  In the 9th, Realmuto and Ichiro singled, and Adeiny Hechavarria hit a sac fly to knock in the game tying run.  Then in the 10th, Gordon did his thing and the Marlins won 5-4.  The bullpen had a big blow against the Marlins in the last five innings.  Wright should’ve pitched till like, the 7th.  The red Sox later lost the second game in the series, annoyingly getting swept.  Meanwhile, Big Papi had 5 dingers on the 8 game road trip, getting him to 491, 9 short of 500.  Which will happen first, the Sox winning 60 games this season, or Papi hitting his 500th dinger?
