8 a.m. ET: The Red Sox’ offense sputtered again on Tuesday, and Boston lost its second straight game against the White Sox. Clay Buchholz will now be asked to fend off a sweep while trying to end the Red Sox’ nine-game road trip on a positive note.
Boston is 5-3 on its current trip, but it’d be hard to get too fired up about the overall results if it ends with a three-game sweep in the Windy City. The Sox were riding high after taking care of business in...

AROUND THE WEB
Clay Buchholz was not pleased with how he started Wednesday night’s game, allowing a hit and two walks in the first inning. He was very satisfied with the outcome, though, as the right-hander surrendered just one run on five hits over seven frames en route to picking up his team-leading seventh win of the season.
Buchholz has been lights out for the Red Sox all season. With the...
Most of the damage done by the Chicago White Sox against Red Sox pitching this series has come with two outs. In fact, all of it had come with two outs entering Wednesday night’s game.
Clay Buchholz has done a good job of avoiding those two-out runs through the early portions of the game, but anything’s possible as the night goes on. For now, NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is hoping...
The Red Sox have not had a very fun trip to Chicago, as the White Sox are on the verge of a sweep on Wednesday night. Clay Buchholz will be on the mound in hopes of preventing that, and Boston would certainly hope for him to be capable.
Once again, the Red Sox find themselves in need of a “stopper” to prevent a longer losing streak, and instead of turning to Jon Lester as they...
The 2013 campaign is huge for Boston Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury. Unfortunately for the former MVP candidate, it hasn't gone so well so far. There has been talk of whether or not the Red Sox should ink the center fielder to a long-term deal, but as of yet sides haven't discussed a contract extension, according to Rob Bradford of WEEI.com.
After coming off a tough...
Clay Buchholz figures a slump will come his way at some point so he'll enjoy this run while it lasts.
Buchholz pitched five-hit ball over seven innings to improve to 7-0, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Chicago White Sox 6-2 Wednesday night to avoid a three-game sweep.
David Ortiz delivered a two-run single in the first off Hector Santiago (1-3) and stole third for the first...
One game doesn’t make a season, and in most cases, one game doesn’t turn a season around. When you’re facing the pressure that Jacoby Ellsbury is facing, though, you take what you can get.
Ellsbury went 2-for-3 with two singles, two walks and a run scored in the Red Sox’ 6-2 win over the White Sox on Wednesday. It was Ellsbury’s first multi-hit game since May 4, and the...
Clay Buchholz and Jon Lester have effectively anchored an inconsistent starting rotation in an overall strong season for the Boston Red Sox. On Wednesday night, Buchholz continued his stellar season with a strong start, helping the Red Sox in a 6-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox.Buchholz worked seven strong innings, surrendering just one run on five hits, while striking out four...
Jacoby Ellsbury, near MVP in 2011 and owner of an injury plagued campaign in 2012, may be getting dropped out of the leadoff spot shortly in the Red Sox lineup.
Manager, John Farrell, indicated Ellsbury may lose claim of being the leadoff hitter if he didn’t turn around his rough start to 2013, which won’t help negotiations in Free Agency as Ellsbury’s contract is set to expire...
Baseball is a funny game.
While other sports have demanding schedules that can span over a long period of months, there’s not much that can measure up to the day-in, day-out grind of baseball. It can be difficult to stay focused 162 games each and every time, but it’s something that best in the game can learn to adapt to.
That’s not just about ballplayers, though. Everyone...

Sometimes all it takes is 1 game to break a guy out of a slump. Last night coould end up being that game for Jacoby Ellsbury. At least, I hope ot is. And I think I speak I speak for Red Sox Nation when I say that. Ellsbury, I think, would also like for that to be the case, especially seeing as he'll be a free agent at the end of the season. The hitting coaches...

After a rough 1st inning, Clay Buchholz settled down and threw seven strong innings. He got support from his offense in David Ortiz and Daniel Nava, who both had two RBIs, in a 6-2 win over the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field on the south side of Chicago.
It seems like a miracle.The Red Sox pitchers who completely lost focus somewhere before the infamous 2011 September collapse are not only back on track, but are pitching better than ever. Jon Lester is 6-1. Clay Buchholz is 6-0. Sure, there are some kinks that still need to be worked out, but Red Sox pitching is leagues ahead of where it was last...
This may have been a game that the Red Sox needed to salvage, but salvage did they ever. What started as a slow offensive output turned into a convincing win, their sixth win in their last eight. They are now an even .500 in the month of May, holding a striking position in the American League East.
Here are the four bases:
