BOSTON — Luis Castillo struck out 10 over six innings on one-hit ball, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Boston Red Sox 2-1 Tuesday night to win at Fenway Park for the first time since Game 7. of the 1975 World Series.
Joey Votto hit two doubles, hitting the ball off the crest of the wall — one to left field and one to right. Both times, he was very close to the home run.
Cincinnati scored both of its runs on Red Sox errors.
Dominican Rafael Devers had the only hit against his compatriot Castillo (2-2), who gave away three walks and left with a 1-0 lead after six innings.
Michael Wacha (3-1) retired the first 12 batters of the game before Votto hit a two-corner shot. However, the starter retired the next three batters to leave Votto gasping on the trails.
For the Reds, the Dominican Arístides Aquino 3-0. The Mexican Alejo López without an official turn but with one scored.
For the Red Sox, Puerto Rican Kiké Hernández 3-1 with a run scored. The Dominicans Rafael Devers 4-2, Franchy Cordero 3-0. Mexican Alex Verdugo 4-1 with an RBI.
