Found August 04, 2013 on One is the Loneliest Number:

Brandon McCarthy was sharp early on, but the Diamondbacks failed to score in Sunday’s 4-0 loss in Boston, capping off a series loss after a very promising win in the opener. McCarthy had good stuff early on in his return from the disabled list. A high pitch count doomed him and he left the game after 4.1 innings, giving up two runs and striking out five.

Peavy makes strong first impression

The Guru Contributing Writer New Red Sox starter Jake Peavy was impressive in his Boston debut Saturday night. When Peavy wasn’t muttering to himself on the mound, he was mowing down Diamondbacks.

Boston Acquires Jake Peavy

The trade deadline of 2013 ended up being a dud, but the night before could prove instrumental to the fortunes of this Red Sox team.

Shortstop Jose Iglesias moves on to the Detroit Tigers, with Detroit outfielder...

Strong pitching helps Boston Red Sox in series win over Arizona

  If late inning heroics weren’t enough for the Boston Red Sox earlier in the week against the Seattle Mariners, the team followed up that series with quality series win against the Arizona Diamondbacks over the weekend.

Doubront, Red Sox shut down D-Backs, 4-0

Diamondbacks leadoff man AJ Pollack walked back to the visitor's dugout flummoxed. Felix Doubront had pin-pointed a changeup at the bottom of the strike zone that Pollack didn't like but it didn't matter.

2013 Red Sox: Seems like old times again

The Guru Contributing Writer Yogi Berra famously said, “It’s like déjà vu, all over again.” This 2013 Boston Red Sox team seems to have a lot of 2004 in them. Rather than a group of so-called “idiots”, it’s a bunch of Bunyanesque ballplayers providing the walk-off magic. Time to fear the beard. Player wise only one Red Sock remains from that 2004 curse killing World...

Red Sox power their way past D-Backs, 5-2
