The Red Sox got out to early 3 run lead and the Angels unfortunately lost their starting pitcher Garrett Richards to a freak knee injury, however the Sox were still unable to capitalize and lost another game to the Angels.  The wheels came off big time for Buchholz in the 5th inning and the Sox were never able to recover.

Sox Lose Yet Another One Run Game

I am pretty sure the Red Sox are never going to win another game, ever.  It sure feels like that sometimes, doesn’t it?  The Red Sox were up against Jered Weaver of the Angels and were able to battle back to the tie the game, but Koji Uehara had one of his rare hiccups and allowed the go ahead run in the top of the 9th.  Rookie starter Allen Webster held his own against Weaver...

Sox Lose Series Opener With the Angels

The Red Sox headed into a 4 game series with the Angels who are in the middle of a division race with the A’s, so it seems like the Halos have a lot more to be playing for than the Red Sox. The Sox could help out their former teammates Lester, Gomes, Crisp, Lowrie, Reddick, Moss and Punto if they took a few games from the Angels, but it seems like they were unable to get that accomplished...

Kelly Struggles in His Fenway Debut

Joe Kelly got to face two National League teams after being traded to the Red Sox, but yesterday was his first time pitching in a Sox uniform at Fenway Park and against an AL team.  Kelly didn’t shine in his debut and had one of the worst pitching performances of his career.  This time David Ortiz wasn’t able to hit homeruns to bring the Sox back from this and the Sox tied...

Papi Homers Twice in Win Over Astros

The Red Sox came off an extra innings loss the night before and had rookie pitcher Rubby De La Rosa on the mound.  De La Rosa struggled through his outing and wasn’t able to make it to the 5th inning, but the Sox offense lead by David Ortiz took care of bringing the win for the home team. De La Rosa gave up 2 early runs in the 1st inning to immediately put the offense in a hole...

Astros Grab A Game at Fenway In Extra Innings

The Red Sox have owned the Astros at the friendly confines of Fenway, but that would come to a halt last night when the Astros finally won a game, even if it did take them 10 innings.  The Red Sox didn’t have much of a chance against the curse that is Ben Affleck’s birthday.  The Sox have not won a game on Affleck’s birthday since Good Will Hunting came out back in the day...

John Farrell – Okay for Now

For the second time in three seasons, the Red Sox seem headed for a last-place finish. However, the circumstances are hardly the same. The 2012 group was managed by Bobby Valentine, who seemed totally unable to deal with the situation. He fought with players and coaches. His media relations were poor. His pitching coach was fired after three months. Dugout cameras seemed to show...

Sox Beat Astros When Astros Break Out in the 6th!

The Red Sox came back to Fenway to begin an 11 game homestand last night.  The Sox were facing off against the Houston Astros with Allen Webster on the mound.  Webster got the team down early, but the bats would have his back and he’d end up getting his 3rd win of the season. Webster didn’t have his sharpest start in a Sox uniform, but he was able to keep the Sox in the game...

Sox Complete Mini Sweep of Reds!

The Red Sox had a 2 game mini series with the Reds before heading home for an 11 game homestand and hoped to bring their winning streak to 3 games.  The Sox had rookie Anthony Ranaudo on the mound vs. Mike Leake for the Reds.  Ranaudo struggled throughout his outing including giving up a homer to the opposing pitcher Mike Leake, but he was able to hold on and be in line for the...

Cespedes Homers Again to Bring Sox The Win!

The Red Sox headed into Cincinnati and had Joe Kelly on the mound for the 2nd time since he was traded to the Sox.  Kelly had some control issues early on and put the team in a hole, but he was able to settle down and keep the team in the game long enough for Cespedes’ big bat to turn the whole game around. The Reds got two quick runs in the 1st inning when Kelly walked two batters...

Cespedes Hits His First HomeRun With Sox in Win!

The Red Sox came into the rubber game of the series just hours after finishing their marathon 19 inning game.  The Sox had Rubby De La Rosa on the mound and hoped he could bring them a win and the series.  Daniel Butler would be making his major league debut at catcher and would be behind the dish as De La Rosa pitched well enough to save the bullpen and bring the team the win...

In A 19 Inning Marathon, Sox Walk Away With A Loss

The Red Sox had Clay Buchholz on the mound and hoped he would have a rebound start from his horrible outing last time verses the Yankees.  Clay struggled in the first, but then really settled down along the stretch.  The Red Sox offense went from almost being no hit, to having the lead and then heading into a marathon extra innings outing.  The Sox would come up short when Albert...

Who is the Stopper?

Now that Jon Lester and John Lackey are gone, the question arises- who is the Red Sox stopper? The answer is easy- they don’t have one. At the beginning of this season, the rotation consisted of Lackey, Lester, Jake Peavy, Felix Doubront and Clay Buchholz. Combined, these five hurlers had chalked up 482 major league wins. At present, the starters are Buchholz, Allen Webster, Joe...

Sox 99 – July Pitching Woes

The Red Sox late July struggles continued, as they saw their wild card lead, once 7 1/2 games, totally disappear. The Florida Marlins, Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tigers, hardly the class of their divisions, took 5 of 8. Florida, whose 34-58 mark was the poorest in the majors, invaded Fenway on the 18th and gave Boston all they could handle before falling 11-9. The Sox survived...
