Week 7

Red Sox 10, Phillies 4
Sunday, June 22 @ Highspire

Keith Humes had a big day for the Red Sox at the plate, on the mound, and in the field.

At bat, Humes knocked a single and a double, stole a base, and hustled in from second base to score a run on a sharp hit to the outfield.

In the field, he scooped up a hit to rightfield and fired a one-hopper to the plate to cut down a runner trying to score.

On the mound, he struck out 8 batters in 4 innings of relief work to keep the Phillies in check through the middle portion of the game.

Curt LaCoe went 3 for 3 to lead the Sox offense, and John Lindholm blasted a long triple to right and laid down a nice sacrifice bunt to move up two runners.

Both teams botched some easy plays in the field, but the Sox compensated with a handful of gems that shut down rallies by the Phillies. Kirk Strous threw out two runners at second base from his station in leftfield. Lance Strous nailed a runner stealing second. Tim Wendel took Humes' throw on a bouncer back to the mound and turned it into a double play. Bill Miller made a couple of nice plays at third base late in the game.

Matt LaBuda grabs a grounder up the middle and fires to Curt LaCoe for the out.

Keith Humes strikes out one of the Phillies with a good fastball.
