The Sox take the series against the Cubs two to one, and in both wins they put on an offensive show by Rafael Devers and Masataka Yoshida.
Game 1: Red Sox win 8-3
The Red Sox took an early lead in this game, mostly thanks to the work of Rafael Devers and Brayan Bello.
Devers had two home runs in tjree innings, and finished the game three for five. Bello held the Cubs from getting a major amount of runs, and got five strikeouts in six innings.
Justin Turner, Triston Casas, Yu Chang, and Adam Duvall also all went yard in this game.
Game 2: Cubs win 10-4
Still riding the high of the game before, the Sox could not keep up with the Cubs, losing 10-4. James Paxton, the June AL Pitcher of the Month, had a rare bad game, giving up six runs in the third, and having to be pulled out.
Casas had a two-run home run this game, but a sleepy offense did not help him try and overcome the deficit.
Game 3: Red Sox win 11-5
The Red Sox managed to seal the series, winning 11-5. Yoshida had another excellent game, getting six RBI off a grand slam and a two-run triple. This is the second game where he had six RBI.
Kutter Crawford also had a spectacular game, holding the Cubs scoreless for six innings, and striking out nine.
Casas also hit another homer in this game, giving him a home run in three consecutive games.
The Red Sox will finish their road trip in Oakland to play the A’s on July 17.
