Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored Tuesday versus the Cardinals.
Remarkably, it was Bogaerts' first RBI in his last 19 games and just his third so far in the second half. He had entered the night in a 1-for-17 skid at the dish. Bogaerts' cold streak has meant a move down to the No. 6 spot in the Red Sox' lineup, although he could earn a trip back up in the order with more nights like Tuesday. Aug 15 - 10:20 PM
