The right angled player Michael Wacha (7-1, 2.44) he did not come back from the disabled list, who was greatly missed by the Boston Red Sox in the six weeks he was unable to play with the team. The right-hander returned on Sunday Night Baseball with a wonderful performance.
Seven shutout innings, two hits, one walk, a season-high nine strikeouts that led the Red Sox to a 3-0 aggregate win over the New York Yankees in the decider of a three-games series.
At 57-59, manager Alex Cora´s team hopes to climb from the fringes of the American League wild-card race (four and a half games behind) to be firmly in contention. Perhaps this weekend against the rival Yankees represents a revival of momentum for a Boston team that has been struggling since late June.
Ryan Brasier and Garrett Whitlock change Wacha, scoring the save this last, his fourth of the year, with a perfect nice inning. Lost Jameson Taillon (11-3, 3.95) with relief of Jonathan Loaisiga.
