Rare feat by Red Sox at The Jake

The Red Sox collected 20 hits on Wednesday, a feat which isn’t too uncommon. However, all 20 hits came from just eight players, who each had at least two (Carl Crawford led the way with four).

It’s just the second time in Jacobs Field history that at least eight players from a visiting team had at least two hits apiece.

The other pounding came at the hands of the Brewers on June 14, 2001. Of the eight players that night, four were former Indians – (Richie Sexson, Jeromy Burnitz, Jose Hernandez, Tyler Houston) and another (Ronnie Belliard) would later join the Tribe. Charles Nagy received the brunt of the beatdown that day, allowing 10 hits and six runs in 5 innings of work.
