Game 71: Sox can't play catchup,lose 6-3
Jon Lester continues to slip, his ERA continues to rise, and his team continues to lose when he pitches. You really can't say he pitched horribly, striking out 8 and walking none, but he only mustered five innings and gave up nine hits in over 100 pitches. Boston bats looked dead until the seventh inning, but by then, they were down five and did not look strong enough to make a poignant comeback. Baltimore took three out of four games from the Red Sox and looked like the stronger team. The Orioles can flat out hit, and do not have a weakness on their offense. Here are today's four at bats that changed the game:
1)Happy 100! After an Adam Jones double to score a run, Chris Davis came up to bat. Usually, pitchers fear the homerun hitter, but Lester has never given up a hit to Davis, so why fear the hitter? Well, maybe Lester should have. Davis took a low 3-1 pitch over the right field fence to put the O's up 3-0 and give him th...
BEST OF MAXIM
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
There was no getting around that Lester has now gone six straight starts without a win. Or that he allowed five extra-base hits, including a two-run homer to right by Chris Davis which keyed a three-run third...

Jon Lester lost his 4th straight, as the Orioles win the 4-game series with the 6-3 victory over the Sox.
Things were going great for the first 2 1/2, and by great, I mean it was tied 0-0. Chris Davis hit a 2-run homer off of Lester in the 3rd as part of a 3-run inning and the O's added another 2 in the fifth. The Red Sox could not fight...
Looking at Jon Lester’s numbers now, it’s hard to believe that he looked unbeatable, along with Clay Buchholz, at the beginning of the season. With Buchholz possibly headed for the disabled list, Lester’s recent slump could end up being a huge problem for the Red Sox.
The Sox are no strangers to Lester’s shakiness from previous seasons, but...
(Mitchell Layton/Getty Images)Jon Lester continued his long slide from dominance to doghouse with five more uninspired innings in a 6-3 Red Sox loss. There was a time when the feathered ones from Camden could not touch Lester, now he's just another lefty. Lester threw 106 pitches, gave up nine hits and five runs—and coughed up a monster 2-run HR to Chris Davis. Behind 5-0,...
A lot has happened since May 15.
The Bruins defeated both the Rangers and Penguins en route to a Stanley Cup berth, the Patriots signed Tim Tebow and the Celtics reportedly could face life without Doc Rivers. The Red Sox, meanwhile, have continued rolling for the most part, although something that hasn’t happened since that date should have them a bit concerned.
May 15 marks the...

The Red Sox rotation is spread thin. Our ace, Clay Bucholz has been banged up and Jon Lester has been winless in 5 starts. There's still a lot of baseball left to play, but Red Sox Nation is starting to get worried. We need more consistency from our starting rotation. But I for one was encouraged by Ryan Dempster's quality start last night. He...
11:05 a.m.: Dustin Pedroia will finally get a day off. He has started every game this season, but John Farrell has decided to give his All-Star second baseman some rest in the series finale.
The Red Sox’ lineup is rather interesting with Pedroia out. Jose Iglesias will start at second base, and he’ll bat second — it’s his first time starting in either capacity.
Tweet The Baltimore Orioles began a three-game series with the Detroit Tigers Monday, meaning two of the American League’s most feared hitters this year would be on display at Comerica Park. Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera entered play leading the AL in batting average (.352), tied for second in home runs (18), and first [...]
Chris Davis homered while Chris Tillman outdueled Ryan Dempster to help the Baltimore Orioles to a 2-0 win over the Boston Red Sox on Friday night at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

After winning yesterday, the Boston Red Sox look to salvage a split this afternoon in the finale of a four-game set with the Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
First pitch is scheduled for 1:35 p.m. The game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Orioles television market, you can catch the game on MASN. And if you can'...

Congratulations to Detroit Tiger’s Torii Hunter and Baltimore Oriole’s Chris Davis as they both hit a personal milestones with the bat today. Torii who is in his 16th season connected on a two run shot over the left field wall for his 300th career home run in the first inning against Minnesota Twins pitcher, P.J Walters. The home run gave the...
Chris Davis has been playing out of his mind. In a different sort of way, Ike Davis was playing out of his mind, too, before getting demoted. If you already knew those things, you might not need to read the rest of this post. But things do get a little more complex.
We’re to the point, now, where a lot of players have amassed fairly significant sample sizes of regular-season data...
There's still more than half a season left to play, so there's no reason for the Baltimore Orioles to become overly excited about their current situation.
Then again, what harm is there in enjoying the moment?
Chris Tillman took a two-hitter into the seventh inning, Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 22nd home run and the Orioles blanked the Boston Red Sox 2-0 Friday...
With a 5-4 win at Camden Yards on Saturday, the Boston Red Sox managed to end their five-game losing streak in Baltimore and extend their slim lead over the Orioles for first place in the American League East to 2.5 games. Despite the loss however, Baltimore has won 13 of their last 18 games against the Red Sox and have proven that they

The Red Sox-Yankees rivalry has stood for over one hundred years at this point, and the Red Sox-Rays rivalry has been clearing benches for a little over ten years. But the Red Sox-Orioles rivalry is fairly new to the AL East.
The Baltimore Orioles were the basement dwellers of the AL East for what feels like...
