Ortiz And Mookie Go 'Yard' As Sox Smite Evil Ones, 4-3

(AP Photo)Jean Machi has to be sent to his room without supper—and without any more opportunities to blow saves. He almost blew another one last night, but Boston hung on for a 4-3 win over The Bronx Embalmers. The Red Sox offense was defined by two home runs—a two-run blast by Mookie Betts (his 13th on the year) and the 495th career HR (a solo shot) by David Ortiz. Jackie Bradley...

Red Sox Notes: Jean Machi Nearly Blows Save Again In Boston’s 4-3 Win

BOSTON — The Boston Red Sox took the first game of their series against the New York Yankees on Monday, but it nearly didn’t happen that way. The contest was an exciting one through eight innings. The Red Sox and Yankees traded leads. David Ortiz hit his 495th career homer, a solo shot, in the fourth inning after Mookie Betts hit a two-run jack in the third. It was close,...

Red Sox Edge Yankees 4-3 In Machi Meltdown

Crisis averted. Jean Machi got through a rough ninth inning in his ninth inning debut, Eduardo Rodriguez gutted through five innings, and the bats did just enough to pull out a 4-3 win over the Yankees.

Red Sox Notes: Joe Kelly Solid Again; Jean Machi Gives Boston Scare

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but the Boston Red Sox bullpen almost blew it Monday night. Joe Kelly enjoyed another good start for the Red Sox, this time in their series opener against the Chicago White Sox. The right-hander was able to get himself out of a couple jams and ended the night with just two earned runs on five hits with four strikeouts and one walk. Kelly...

Closer Report, Week 19: From DFA to Closer?

Are the Red Sox grasping at proverbial straws here?  I mean, let's go to the waiver wire in real life... Grab a reliever, Jean Machi, that has three career saves, and let's say we'll think about him being the closer for our team.  It sounds weird and crazy, but then you look at the Sawx record (it's the worst in the AL by the way), and realize maybe it's not such a far fetched...

Jean Machi- Bullpen Help- Part 2

Machi, a 33-year old from Venezuela, certainly has been around. He has pitched in 6 organizations and 25 teams since 2002. He became a reliever in 06 and bounced around a bit. He finally established himself as a closer and setup man with the AAA Fresno Grizzlies in the San Francisco Giants system. He was called up to the Giants last year and continued his success as a reliever, going...

WATCH: Pirates ran themselves into embarrassing double play

This is just awful. The Pirates had a chance to blow their game with the Giants wide open in the sixth inning after Jean Machi walked Chris Stewart to load the bases with one out. And then…disaster. Travis Snider, who was on second base at the time of the walk, inexplicably began to trot down to third base. Machi noticed, and alertly threw to shortstop Brandon Crawford, who got...

San Francisco Giants: Trade deadline thoughts

Coming into the season the San Francisco Giants bullpen was seen as one of the strengths of the team. It started off that way. However, during the Giants recent downhill tumble the bullpen has become not quite unreliable but certainly isn’t what it was the first two months of the season. What happened to the Giants bullpen? Also, what else is going on with the team as the trade...

San Francisco Giants: why Jean Machi has been the most surprising

Many of general manager Brian Sabean’s offseason acquisitions were deemed questionable. The aging Tim Hudson and the oft-injured Michael Morse were brought in and greeted with much uncertainty from fans. However, their resurgence this season along with the bounce back seasons of players such as Angel Pagan and Jeremy Affeldt has allowed for a spirited debate over who has been the...
