Mike Carp, Burke Badenhop Combine For Awkward Out In Red Sox Win (Video)

Mike Carp and Burke Badenhop showed why these Boston Red Sox are worth watching even when the score is one-sided. Carp and Badenhop combined for a very unique out in the seventh inning of the Red Sox’s 8-3 win over the Houston Astros in Friday’s series opener at Minute Maid Park. Both players got dirty on the play, which ultimately retired Matt Dominguez for the final out of...

Burke Badenhop Gaining More Trust During Impressive Streak With Red Sox

BOSTON — Burke Badenhop leaned on a vacuum cleaner as he answered questions from reporters Monday following the Red Sox’s 1-0 win over the Minnesota Twins at Fenway Park. It was simply by chance that the cleaning apparatus was located where it was, but the sight was extremely fitting given the workmanlike season the veteran right-hander has had to this point. Badenhop, who has...

During Wednesday night's Red Sox - Twins game, Boston reliever Burke Badenhop made a pretty nifty grab of a bouncer to the mound only to follow it up with an off-balance throw past second base. On the same play, after comically turtling-up on the mound, Badenhop's attempt to stand up turned into an even funnier stumble to the plate.No one seemed more entertained at the trip and...

Sox Rally Comes Up Short; Fall To Rangers, 10-7

(Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images)It all started with Felix Doubront and Burke Badenhop. Both Red Sox pitchers were astonishingly ineffective last night—allowing the Texas Rangers to build an 8-0 lead after three and one-half innings—before the Pink Hats could find their seats and guzzle their first $8.50 watered-down beer. With a furious late rally, Boston closed the gap, but...

Sox Agree To One-Year Deal With Badenhop

The Red Sox avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.15 million non-guaranteed contract with Burke Badenhop (not to be confused with Boris Badenof). Last November, Boston sent 20-year old LHP Luis Ortega to Milwaukee for the right-handed reliever—who had great success against righties in 2013 (holding them to a .229 average).
