Former Wildcat Bobby Dalbec stays hot with the Boston Red Sox

TAMPA BAY, FL – Former Wildcat Bobby Dalbec stays hot, homering in his fifth-straight game as the Boston Red Sox win 4-3 over the Tampa Rays.

It has been nearly two weeks since former Wildcat Bobby Dalbec was called up by the Boston Red Sox, and boy he has been a great fit since then.

As you may recall, Bobby first appeared with Boston back on August 30, playing against the defending World Series Champions, the Washington Nationals.

In the Red Sox’s 9-5 win that day, Bobby went an astounding 2-4 from the plate with two RBI’s and a homerun. However, the production has slowed down for him since then.

With the Red Sox returning to action again last night, Boston took on the Division Leading Tampa Rays in Florida, and once again, it was another successful day for Bobby!

Mike Kickham got the start for the Red Sox in this one, as he finished his day pitching four innings, surrendering two runs on three hits. But it was reliever Ryan Weber that would pick up the win in this one.

However, once again stealing the day was Dalbec.

Despite going just 1-4 from the plate, the one hit proved important for Bobby and the Sox, as Dalbec homered for the fifth-straight game.

Coming in the top of the fifth inning, Bobby took a 1-0 changeup from Josh Fleming that he blasted to right field to give the Red Sox the 3-2 lead.

While Boston would go on to win 4-3 against Tampa, again it was Bobby that stole the show as he homered for his fifth-straight game, tying the rookie record!

Now batting .250 on the season, Dalbec has six homeruns with nine RBI’s in 10 games. And for a team that sits in last place in their division at 16-29, Bobby has been one of the few bright spots on this squad.

In case you needed to see those homeruns again, here you go!

At Zona Zealots, we’re proud of Bobby and look forward to continuing to watch him in Boston! As always, Bear Down, Arizona!
