Red Sox Trail Red Hot Yankees

The Red Sox are off to a 5-7 start and trailing the red hot Yankees by four games. Marty Barrett, one of the bright spots for the Red Sox, will miss at least one week with a bad back.

Baylor Lifts Red Sox to 5-2 Triumph

April 20, 1986

Chicago White Sox (4-8)000000110260
Boston Red Sox (5-7)00010400X5130

Don Baylor helped his team muscle past the Chicago White Sox, 5-2. In the game, the Boston first baseman was 3-3 with a home run, a double, and a walk. He drove in 3 runs and scored once.

Jeff Sellers earned the win for Boston. He lasted 8 innings, allowing 2 earned runs on 6 hits, while striking out 2. With the win, he raised his record to 1-0. Bob Stanley got the save, the 2nd for him this season. Baylor had an important at-bat with a runner on 1st in the bottom of the sixth, when he hit a 2-run home run. The Red Sox went on to win.

 Baylor called the win the result of "everyone being in sync." The White Sox fall to 4-8 and continue their tough start to the 1986 season.
