Ryan Dempster wasn’t able to pick up the win on Saturday night in the Red Sox’ matchup against the Minnesota Twins because he was pulled before the requisite five innings. The Sox went on the best the Twins 11-5, but Dempster struggled in the first three innings.
The right-hander is 0-1 in his last two starts with a 10.24 ERA — much different from how he performed in his first seven starts. Dempster said his biggest struggle on Saturday night was consistency.
Check out the video above to hear what else Dempster had to say, or check it out on NESN’s YouTube channel.

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.
Lackey earned the win, his first since April 28, improving to 2-4, lowering his ERA from 4.05 to 3.31. “The record doesn’t indicate or reflect how well he’s pitched,” manager John Farrell said. “Now...
Shane Victorino and Vance Worley didn’t just share a clubhouse in Philadelphia. They shared an addition.
Don’t worry, though. It’s a healthy addiction, all things considered, and it’s one that each big leaguer battles with today. Worley, who now pitches for the Twins after three seasons with the Phillies, and Victorino both have a strong passion for shoes.
“He’s a big...

David Ortiz continues to slug and he certainly let his former team experience just that on Saturday night. Ortiz would account for half of the 12 runs scored by Boston in its 12-5 victory over the Minnesota Twins.
Beginning in the first-inning, Ortiz launched a one out, three-run home run to right field off of Scott Diamond, scoring Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia to give the...
Dustin Pedroia’s hustle and grit have been on display since Day 1. But his effort this season provides a perfect snap shot of the 2013 Red Sox.
Pedroia’s .335 average, .423 on-base percentage, 27 runs, 25 walks and 1.6 offensive wins above replacement are all tops on the Red Sox. He entered Friday’s game hitting .500 (16-for-32) over the course of an eight-game hit streak,...
Only Mike Napoli, Dustin Pedroia and Jacoby Ellsbury have played in all 41 games this year for the Red Sox, but manager John Farrell will give his first baseman a break when the team opens a three-game set in Minnesota.
Napoli was one of the most productive hitters in all of baseball in the month of April, but he has struggled at the plate in recent games. Though he fell a triple...
After coming a poor 2-5 homestand, the Boston Red Sox started this week on the right track by taking two out of three from the Tampa Bay Rays and by Friday are only one home behind the New York Yankees for first place in the AL East. The Red Sox lost three out of four from the Minnesota Twins at Fenway Park last week and will face at Target Field for a three game series this weekend...
The Red Sox look to continue their positive momentum and pick up their fourth straight win on Saturday night against the Minnesota Twins.
The Sox are banged up in a number of ways with Shane Victorino with a back injury and short stop Stephen Drew out after also sustaining a back injury Friday night in Boston’s extra-inning win over the Twins. Pedro Ciricao gets the starting...
Dustin Pedroia may just be the epitome of who the Red Sox are. It may not always be perfect or pretty, but they get the job done. And they both certainly exemplified that during Friday’s 3-2 extra innings win over the Minnesota Twins.
Pedroia has been getting criticism for not being a power hitter so far this season, as he has only one home run...
Back-to-back last at-bat wins have helped get the Boston Red Sox on a roll. The Sox (25-17) look to extend this mini streak to four games tonight, as they play game two of their series against the Minnesota Twins (18-20). It will be Ryan Dempster (2-4, 3.75 ERA) pitching for the Red Sox against the Twins’ Scott Diamond (3-3. 4.08 ERA).
David Ortiz had three hits, including two home runs and six RBIs to help power the Boston Red Sox past the Minnesota Twins 12-5 at Target Field in Minneapolis, MN on Saturday night.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. If you live in the Red Sox television market you can catch the game on NESN. If you live in the Twins television market, you can catch the...
It was a good start to the nine-game road trip for the Boston Red Sox (24-17), who took two of three at Tampa Bay and open up a three-game weekend series in Minnesota tonight. The Sox lost three of four at home to the Twins (18-19) last week and will look to avoid losing the season series by sweeping this series at Target Field. Red Sox Nation has...
5:40 p.m.: Shane Victorino and outfield walls just aren’t getting along lately.
Victorino crashed into the right-field wall at Tropicana Field on Thursday, just four days after he experienced a violent collision with the right-field wall at Fenway Park. Victorino’s back, which he had problems with earlier this season, started to tighten up a bit after Thursday’s collision,...
