(Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)Brandon Workman made a big statement in his first big league start. The 24-year-old righty carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning, giving up his bid for immortality and the lead on a two-run home run in that frame. The game droned on until the 11th when the A's walked-off with a 3-2 win—victimizing new Red Sox reliever Matt Thornton. Dustin Pedroia and Brock Holt were the offensive stars, but it just wasn't enough to give Boston its 59th win. The Red Sox will go into the break with just a 2.5 game lead on the surging Tampa Rays—who pose the biggest threat in the second half. Tampa won 17 of their last 21 games before the break—and have the best record in baseball since May 8th.
BEST OF MAXIM
There were no rookie jitters this time around.
Brandon Workman, who provided a mixed bag while pitching in relief during his major league debut in Seattle on Wednesday, was called upon to start Sunday’s series finale in Oakland. The 24-year-old made the most of his opportunity.

It’s here, folks. Don’t blink because you may miss the rest of the season.
The final game before the All-Star Break has arrived and the Boston Red Sox (58-38) look to finish the first portion of the season a high note. They’ve split the first two games with the Oakland Athletics (55-39), taking the first 4-2 and losing the second 3-0. No...

The last time that Brandon Workman took the mound for the Red Sox was during his major league debut on Wednesday. Things didn’t go as planned for Workman, though, as he saw his ERA climb to 13.50 in two innings of work.
The Sox hope that Sunday will go better for him, as he makes his first major league start. He will have his work cut out for him, though, as he will have to keep...
Despite the Red Sox 4-3 extra-inning loss Sunday in Oakland, there was one very encouraging sign. The Sox have something in Brandon Workman.
Workman kept the A's off balance all day and the right-hander took a no-hitter into the seventh inning before an infield hit from Coco Crisp and a home run by third baseman Josh Donaldson cost him the game...
Brandon Workman dazzled Red Sox fans in Oakland for seven innings Sunday. The rookie flirted with a no-hitter and showed just why the Red Sox see him as a piece in their puzzle.
The right-hander gave up just the two runs on two hits while striking out five and walking one in 6 1/3 innings. It was an impressive outing for Workman, who made his major league debut in Seattle on Wednesday...
I can deal with the Red Sox loss from last night, because it came with some indications that Jon Lester might be getting back on track. Lester pitched a quality start, and while he was tagged for the loss, the fact that he made it through 6.1 innings and allowed just three runs gives me hope for the rest of the season.
I suppose it’s appropriate for the final start before...
Brandon Workman was solid for 6.1 innings in his first MLB start for the Boston Red Sox. But it was Josh Donaldson who did all the damage for the Oakland A's in a 3-2 walkoff win in 11 innings on Sunday afternoon at O.co Coliseum in Oakland, CA.

The Red Sox looked to go into the 3 day All Star break on a high note, not as if their entire season hasn't been a high note already, but fell short in extra innings. The Sox enter the break with a 58-39 record, 2.5 games up on Tampa bay in the AL East and the most wins in the Major Leagues. Both pitchers on Sunday pitched well, Workman put...
Brandon Workman and Drake Britton were the two candidates to start Sunday’s game for the Red Sox. Workman ended up getting the nod, but Britton will be in uniform for Boston.
The Red Sox called up Britton from Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday, and they optioned outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. back to Pawtucket. Britton will wear No. 66, and he will be available as Boston closes out a...

(AP Photo/Ben Margot) Yes, Jonny, that was the second straight game lost by the Sox. That was Jonny Gomes arguing with home plate Umpire, Todd Tichenor, that he did call time out in time (which he didn't), before he struck out in the 9th. Gomes was promptly ejected from the game not long after the argument began. It all started to downhill way before that...
2:04 p.m.: The final lineup card of the first half has been posted, and it looks like some regular starters will enjoy an extended All-Star break.
Shane Victorino, Mike Napoli and Jarrod Saltalamacchia are all out of the lineup for the Red Sox on Sunday. Victorino has been banged up of late, and Saltalamacchia will get the day off with the day game after a night game.
If we learned anything from the book and film Moneyball, it’s that the teams that win games are the teams that score runs. The Red Sox didn’t do any scoring last night, held in check by the notorious A. J. Griffin, so they copped a loss.
I’m not gonna dwell too much on it, other than to say despite the loss, Jon Lester put in a decent performance giving up just three runs...
