Wade Miley was born in 1986. In true Millennial spirit Miley ripped into authority figure John Farrell after he was pulled from the game. Miley lasted four innings with nine hits (three of them home runs) and five earned runs. “But I didn’t walk anyone and I struck out three!” yelled Miley as he stalked Farrell in the dugout.
Dennis Eckersley was not impressed by Miley’s behavior.
On the positive side David Ortiz clouted a solo homer in the eighth inning. Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-4 with two runs batted in. If these two ailing bats recover perhaps the season can be salvaged. It wasn’t enough for the Red Sox to avoid a series sweep against a divisional rival. Maybe get a few more Red Sox batters sippin’.
Off the field Tonya Carpenter, the fan who was critically injured by a shattered bat at Fenway, was upgraded to “good” condition.
