Josh Beckett's 'Disappointing Duel' Results in Unfair Outcome After Dominant Performance (Video)

Josh Beckett pitched great on Wednesday night. The Orioles didn't care. Beckett was a hard-luck loser after spinning a gem through eight innings against the O's, but Baltimore was able to string together a few hits and scratch across enough runs to spoil his night. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is still giving Beckett our "Disappointing Duel" award after this one...

Josh Beckett's Continued Dominance Solidifying Role as Ace of Red Sox Staff

Josh Beckett threw just 92 pitches in eight innings of work on Wednesday night and wanted more. The success-starved starter has been searching for a win in each of his last four starts, but once again came up empty against the Orioles. The 32-year-old allowed just two runs and five hits over eight innings of outstanding work, turning in his eighth quality start in 11 chances this...

Sox fall back to .500 in 2-1 loss to Orioles

The Red Sox couldn't get anything going on offense, wasting a superb start by Josh Beckett and falling to the AL East-leading Orioles 2-1.  Beckett went eight strong, throwing just 92 pitches in the effort. He scattered five hits, walked one, and struck out five. For all the hulabaloo over him in the offseason, Josh's ERA is now just a touch over four, and he looks like...

Red Sox Must Find Way to Regain Momentum That Propelled Them Over .500 in May

Things looked bleak for the Red Sox on May 10 after Josh Beckett was knocked around Fenway Park. Not only was the disastrous start part of the whole golf outing fisasco, it also dropped Boston to a season-high seven games under .500. From there, though, the Sox got red-hot, going 14-5 to end the month, capping off a 15-14 record for the month that had them two games over .500 heading...

Chen outduels Beckett, Baltimore edges Boston again

BOSTON -- Whether it's a slugfest or pitcher's duel, Baltimore seems to have a decided edge over Boston. The Orioles improved to 5-0 in Fenway Park this season with a 2-1 victory over the Red Sox on Wednesday night, getting seven solid innings from starter Wei-Yin Chen the lights-out save from closer Jim Johnson. Baltimore finished with just five hits, but three of them...

David Ortiz Knows Offense Has a Job to Do After Mustering Little to Back Josh Beckett

The Red Sox offense knows that the outcome of Wednesday night's 2-1 loss to the Orioles could have been different. Granted, you have to tip your cap to Orioles' starter Wei-Yin Chen -- who gave up just 7 hits, no walks and one run over 7 innings -- but it feels like Josh Beckett outdueled his Orioles counterpart. Beckett, who himself gave up just five hits in eight innings...

Orioles Defeat Red Sox Again... Have The Tables Turned?

They are 32-24 and lead the division by ½ a game over the New York Yankees. The Orioles, as well know have struggled over the past few weeks; however, maybe the Boston Red Sox are the elixir for Baltimore’s issues. They have won seven straight against...

Red Sox News & Notes - 6/7

Back to .500 for the Boston Red Sox after their third straight loss last night. Gone are the days when you can look at the schedule and say well 18 games against the Baltimore Orioles means about 12-15 wins. So far in 2012, the Orioles have owned the Red Sox and the worst part about it is the fact that the local nine hasn't beaten them at home yet. On any other night, an...

Sox Fall Back to .500

The offense struggled once again Wednesday night, managing only one run on seven hits.   For the first time in over a week, the Boston Red Sox have fallen back to .500 thanks to a three-game losing streak in their finale against the Toronto Blue Jays and their first two of the series against the Baltimore Orioles.  The Sox more recently spoiled a fine start from Josh Beckett,...

Who Will Be This Week's Amica Pitcher of the Week?

After a quick road-trip up to Toronto, the Red Sox return to Fenway Park on Tuesday night to take on the second-place Baltimore Orioles. Jon Lester, Josh Beckett and Clay Buccholz are all slated to take the mound during the series, and the Sox will need solid outings from all three to string together some wins and claw their way toward the top of the American League East. Lester...

Orioles 2, Red Sox 1

Orioles take over the lead in AL East

Baltimore manager Buck Showalter decided it was time to let Wei-Yin Chen handle things on his own a little more. The rookie left-hander passed the test. Chen scattered seven hits over seven innings and the Orioles set a franchise record with their seventh straight victory in Boston, beating the Red Sox 2-1 on Wednesday night. Chen's most important inning was the seventh, when...
