Red Sox beat Brewers 2-1 in series finale, avoid sweep

The Boston Red Sox entered Sunday with a chance to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers, and they did just that, earning a 2-1 win.

Boston’s pitching continues to be outstanding, as Tanner Houck went six innings, giving up just one run and striking out seven. The bullpen followed with three scoreless innings, one each from Chris Martin, Justin Slaten and Kenley Jansen (who earned his ninth save).

Offensively, the Red Sox weren’t doing a whole lot. The team, as a whole, recorded eight hits, but they also struck out nine times.

Boston’s two runs came in the form of a sacrifice fly from Rafael Devers (1-for-2) and an RBI single by Jarren Duran (1-for-4).

Wilyer Abreu (3-for-4) and Ceddanne Rafaela (2-for-3) also had solid days at the plate.

The Red Sox are now 27-26 on the year and 11-15 at Fenway Park. With the series concluding, they’ll take on the Baltimore Orioles for three games at Camden Yards.
