Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Strikes out 12

Rodriguez struck out 12 batters over 6.2 innings Saturday against the Phillies, allowing just a single run on four hits and a walk.

Rodriguez was completely dominant through six frames, allowing just a pair of two-out singles. Manager Alex Cora made a possibly ill-advised decision to let the starter hit with two outs and the bases loaded and just a one-run lead in the seventh inning, though, as Rodriguez went on to walk in the game-tying run in the bottom half of the frame before being pulled with two outs. Despite failing to record the win, it was a dominant start for the lefty, who's now allowed no more than one run in five of his last six starts.
