2. Good Start, Poor Finish for Plutko
Indians starter Adam Plutko was in trouble it seemed like all day, but was able to work out of a few jams until finally it caught up with him in the 5th inning.
He allowed two runners in the first, one in the third, and two in the fourth before finally falling apart in the 5th, allowing a double, single and walk before the flood gates opened for the Sox to push six across by the time the inning was over.
The final linescore for Plutko read 4.1 innings, 5 runs, 5 hits, 5 walks and 4 K’s. With a dangerous team like the Red Sox, allowing runners on with free passes is a recipe for disaster, and in the 5th his outing all came crumbling down.
Plutko falls to 4-4 with a 5.09 ERA on the season.
