The Boston Red Sox extended their winning streak to four games Friday night thanks to a walk-off home run off the bat of Mitch Moreland. But lost in the dramatic contest was the strong performance of Boston’s starter.
Eduardo Rodriguez didn’t have his best stuff, but he battled through six innings and limited the Chicago White Sox to just two runs on four hits to help the Red Sox earn the 3-2 win. The left-hander grew stronger as the game progressed, but a steep pitch count forced him out of the game.
After the walk-off win, Rodriguez explained how he needs to work on his put-away pitch, as it would help limit his pitch count and allow him to go deeper into ball games.
