Positive news for the Sox…Andrew Benintendi goes 3 for 3 with his 5th home run and is now hitting .341. Must be time to ship him off, right front office?
Ryan Mountcastle continues to rake. Today he goes 3 for 4 with his 7th jack and is now batting .330. The Orioles clip the Angels’ wings 9-5. Future first ballot hall of famer, Albert Pujols, hits his 660th career home run to tie Willie Mays for 5th on the all-time list.
