Astros Best Red Sox At Fenway

Jonathan Grant | June 10th, 2021

In a battle between two teams that could be a factor come the postseason, perhaps even against one another, the Houston Astros came out on top over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on Wednesday night. Having fallen 2-0 down in the first inning, Jake Odorizzi recovered on the mound and got help from his offense. Jose Altuve tied the game in the third with a solo homer as part of a four-run frame that put them up for good.

Bleacher Report

Odorizzi, who went on to pitch five innings and get his first win since 2019, only surrendered one more run is taking a bow. Alex Bregman finished the game 3-4 with two RBI’s, one of which came in the eighth to pad their lead, making it 8-3. Myles Straw also had a strong showing, producing two RBI’s on a 2-4 night. The win gives the Astros a 35-26 record, putting them a game off Oakland in the AL West. Boston’s loss, a second in a row, dropped them to 37-25, 1.5 games behind Tampa Bay in the AL East.
