Drew Pomeranz wasn’t at his best Friday night, but the Boston Red Sox left-hander did enough to earn his ninth victory of the season.
Pomeranz battled through six innings, allowing two runs on six hits while walking five batters in the Red Sox’s 8-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. Luckily for Boston’s starter, he received a stellar defensive effort behind him, including two huge double plays.
After the game, Pomeranz praised the Sox’s defense for getting him out of a couple of jams en route to the victory.
Hear what else Pomeranz had to say in the video above from “Red Sox Final,” presented by Plainridge Park Casino.
