News Report: The Red Sox were unsure if their top player would be able to start against the Orioles due to his illness…

The Red Sox were sceptical that a sick Brayan Bello would be able to start Tuesday’s game against the Orioles.

Red Sox had doubts Brayan Bello would be able to make his start vs. O's -

Manager Alex Cora stated, “He really wasn’t feeling great.” And we thought at one point last night (Monday) that he wasn’t going to throw. But he felt better, for some reason.

Boston defeated Baltimore 8-3 at Camden Yards thanks to Bello’s five and a half innings of relief work that yielded three runs, five hits, two walks, and seven strikeouts.

Cora said that “he was feeling sick throughout the day.” We then sent him to the hotel, where he struggled to get by. It was encouraging to see someone simply go out there and pitch like that. That baseball club is excellent—really excellent. However, on any given night, his stuff may pull out the finest lineups. He wasn’t giving up today.

Bello claimed that even before the Red Sox came to Baltimore, he was feeling “a little sick.”

“But that wasn’t going to stop me from giving it my all today,” Bello remarked via Daveson Pérez, his translator.

29 pitches were thrown by Bello in the first inning. After leading Adley Rutschman 0–2 in the count, he gave up two singles, one double, a walk, and a hit by pitch.

However, over the course of the next three innings, the 25-year-old righty held the O’s scoreless while giving up only two base runners (a walk and a single). In the second and third innings, he struck out the first two batters and the side.

Bello remarked, “I think my body wasn’t really all that warmed up in that first inning.” “But I was able to do what I do after we got past that.”

In the sixth, Bello gave up a single and a hit by pitch to the first two batters who reached, and manager Alex Cora replaced him with reliever Brennan Bernardino.

After loading the bases by walking the first batter he faced, Bernardino set to work.

Austin Hays was struck out by Bernardino on a foul tip, which was the first out. For the second out of the game, he got Jorge Mateo to ground into a force-out at home. The southpaw then managed to escape without giving up a run by striking out 2023 AL Rookie of the Year Gunnar Henderson on three pitches. Boston was still ahead 4-3.

Bello stated, “I was yelling at him from the dugout the entire time because he was doing such a great job.” “I had to give him a hug and a kiss because of the amazing work he did out there.”
