Thames hits 13th HR, Brewers outslug Red Sox in 11-7 win

Boston Red Sox's Hector Velazquez pitches during a spring training game against the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday

The first two games in Milwaukee didn't have that make-or-break feel to them for the Red Sox. His shot to deep right-center set the tone for the Brewers. He knocked home Christian Vazquez who doubled (his fifth of the season) to left field with one out.

Milwaukee Brewers third baseman, and former Red Sox, Travis Shaw joined Rob Bradford to discuss his current lot in life, along with his true feelings about how things transpired in 2016 with the Sox.

Jackie Bradley Jr. homered for the Red Sox, while Vazquez was one of four Boston hitters with two hits. Hitting's becoming easier _ I'm not saying it's easy _ but it's definitely becoming easier than what it was.

Knuckleballer Steven Wright underwent successful left knee surgery Wednesday and will miss the remainder of the 2017 season, leaving a gaping hole at the back end of the Red Sox' rotation.

Boston's offense made right-hander Chase Anderson work, tagging him for nine hits and a walk in 4 2/3 innings but could only score two against him and finished the game 2-for-16 with nine stranded. The 28 year old would, however, have to be put on the 40-man roster in order to make just one or two starts.

Boston's Mookie Betts hit belted a leadoff home run in the first inning to give the Red Sox a 1-0 lead, but that would quickly go away.

Peralta worked 4 1/3 innings, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks with four strikeouts. The 2012 AL Cy Young Award victor will be limited to about 75 pitches.

Manager John Farrell said he might rearrange the rotation with a day off coming up Monday and his bullpen overworked of late. Guerra has been sideline since getting hurt on opening day.

Since then, Broxton has bounced back significantly and added another strong Performance Tuesday night, driving in a career-high four runs and finishing a double short of the cycle to lead the Brewers to an 11-7 victory over the Boston Red Sox at Miller Park.

Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts doubled off the base of the wall down the line in left in the first to extend his hitting streak to 13 games. The one caveat for right now would be that Broxton was batting 7th in last night's game, and has seen the most starts at that position in the lineup to begin the season.
