Beantown Beating: Braves Rough Loss In Boston
The Braves didn’t look so hot in their final interleague game of 2012.
The Red Sox were hunting for blood! So was Cody Ross, hitting a 3-run bomb in the bottom of the 4th, then if that wasn’t good enough, Adrian Gonzalez hits a bomb of his own! Back to back homers, to make the score 4-0!
The Bravos answered back with 3 runs in the top of the 5th, on an Eric Hinske triple to send home Jason Heyward and Andrelton Simmons. The very next play, on Aaron Cook’s error, Eric Hinske was able to come home. That made the score 4-3.
You just can’t keep Jason Heyward of the basepaths! He homered to left, to chip away at the Red Sox lead, in the top of the 6th inning, making the score 7-4!
In his final at-bat as a member of the Red Sox, Kevin “Youk” Youkilis triples to right to send home Adrian Gonzalez in the bottom of the 7th. During the game, Youkilis was traded to the Chicago White Sox.
After the 7th inning, no one else crossed the plate, and the Braves were shut down by the final score of 9-4.
