Guerrero led Major League Baseball to the Homers, with five of them appearing in Monday’s games. He helped his team lead the MLS Eastern Conference with a 6-4 record.
In the first game of this three-game series, Yossi Kikuchi and Nathan Evaldi are expected to be the first shooters. Kikuchi (0-1) certainly didn’t experience the expected baptism in the Guys’ costume. He gave up three runs, including two he’s earned, five hits, two runs in three runs and a third last Tuesday, when the New York Yankees won 4-0.
Evaldi (1-0), for his part, will be in his third game this season. He boasts a 4.50 ERA, having hit 13 in 10 runs.
absent are coming
This series between the two teams is the first of two groups in a very short time. Starting next Monday, they’ll meet four times on Canadian soil, where the Red Sox’s line-up could be very different.
Indeed, bowler Tanner Hook indicated on Sunday that he would not accompany the team to Canada because he has not been vaccinated against COVID-19 and that the Canadian government is requiring proof of appropriate vaccination to enter the country.
However, he’s not the only Sox player who hasn’t been vaccinated. When a reporter asked manager Alex Cora if the other athletes could stay in Boston, he simply answered “yes” without explanation.
Additionally, recipient Kevin Blauecki — who was vaccinated — has contracted COVID-19, as have two team members. He is unlikely to be able to cross the border, as the deadline to do so after a positive result is 10 days, according to the government’s website.
The Red Sox was also playing a morning game due to the Boston Marathon on Monday. They were beaten 8-3 by the Minnesota Twins at Fenway Park.
Rich Hill (0-1) allowed four runs in four rounds and two-thirds, and his team never recovered.
Kyle Garlick and Jorge Polanco were his tormentors, both blasting the running crawlers twice in the first and third rounds, respectively. Cristian Vazquez was the only Red Sox player who extended his arms during this duel.
On the hill, Dylan Bundy (2-0) had a good walk. The Twins player only allowed one run in five strokes of the safe and outlasted six opponents in the gauntlet in five and three rounds.
