Found August 03, 2013 on NESN.com:
Brandon Workman more or less pitched well enough to win in his first two big league starts, but Tuesday, the third time was the charm for the Red Sox rookie. Workman pitched six innings, yielded just one run on six hits and struck out nine batters to earn his first career major-league win in the Red Sox’ 8-2 win over the Mariners on Tuesday night at Fenway Park, earning him Amica Pitcher of the Week honors. It was a welcome result for Workman, who had pitched well in his first two starts. On July 14, he took a no-hitter into the seventh inning against Oakland before giving up a pair of runs and the lead. On July 22, he followed it up with another solid outing, pitching six innings and only surrendering two runs, but he didn’t receive any run support in a 3-0 loss to the Rays. Now, with the recent acquisition of Jake Peavy, it’s up in the air when — and if — Workman will start again, as he’s been moved to the bullpen.

The defining Red Sox series of 2013

Your browser does not support iframes. One random baseball game in August cannot tell the whole story of a baseball team and its season, no matter the circumstances. There is a reason that baseball is played in series format, as each set of two, three, four and sometimes even five games is how teams build the stories of their season as the push to play in October lives on. Even a...
