RED SOX ROOKIE SPOILS HAMILTON'S HOMECOMING


May 29,2015

Red Sox rookie starter EDUARDO RODRIGUEZ made his major league debut in Texas last night, which also happened to be the first home game for JOSH HAMILTON in his return to the Rangers.

The home crowd gave Hamilton several long ovations and he responded well, going 2 for 4 with 2 doubles and an RBI.

But the rookie was baffling, going 7 2/3 scoreless innings and leaving the game with a 5-0 lead. Rodriguez struck out seven allowing only three hits and two walks. The Red Sox hope he can perform at this level and give them the good problem of having six starters in the Major Leagues.

The Red Sox held on to win the game 5-1.
