Red Sox Drop Nationals, 14-7
Behind the bravura of left fielder Clint Frazier, the Boston Red Sox topped the Washington Nationals by the score of 14-7. Frazier went 2-4 with a home run, a double, and a walk. He scored 3 runs and drove in 2 for the Red Sox. Boston has 3 straight wins, Washington 3 straight losses.

Boston used the bat of Javier Baez to get the win. The shortstop hammered a grand slam home run in the top of the fourth inning to put the Red Sox ahead, 8-3. It was his lone hit in 5 at-bats, but it did its damage.

"We swung the bats good throughout the lineup," said Boston skipper Chris L.
