Sox 99 – Surprising Start

Quieting some of their naysayers, the Sox broke from the gate with 5 straight wins for the first time since 1946. After sweeping the Royals in KC, they took a pair in Tampa Bay before finally dropping one. Number 4 starter Mark Portugal continued the mound domination, going 6 1/3 innings of shutout ball in a 4-1 win. Brian Daubach doubled in his first Sox at bat, then tripled in...

Power Shortage

After 9 games, it is obvious the Red Sox have a shortage of power. They are 8th in the AL in slugging percentage, 9th in runs scored, 8th in doubles (even with the benefit of the Wall), and have yet to hit a triple. They have left many runners in scoring position (17 for 79) and Tuesday hit into five double plays in a loss to Texas. There are few true power men on the roster....

Sox 99 – KC Sweep

As the Townies went to Kaufmann Stadium to open the 99 season, question marks filled the air. In a piece entitled “Time at last for the Sox to show their stuff”, Dan Shaughnessy continued his criticism of the front office while admitting that a few wins would blunt the negative predictions. “In the last three years, ” he wrote, “Mike Greenwell, Jose Canseco, Roger Clemens...

Pedroia Headed Back to Boston to Get Wrist Evaluated

Last year Dustin Pedroia played through a thumb injury that would have put most players on the sidelines, so when he was scratched from Sunday’s lineup and sent back to Boston to meet with the team doctors, it is of course concerning.  It was reported that Pedroia has been suffering with wrist soreness since he injured it trying to complete a double play in the home opener against...

Sox Fall to Yanks and Lose Series in the Bronx

The Red Sox needed to win the game last night in order to at least split the series.  The Sox had lefty Felix Doubront on the mound who had one of his worst starts his last time out vs. Ivan Nova of the Yankees.  Doubront pitched better than he did the last time out, but still looked pretty hittable early on.  The biggest news of the game was either Pedey being out of the lineup...

The Red Sox took on the Yankees yesterday afternoon and hoped to be able to take an advantage in the series.  The Sox had Lackey on the mound who has pitched dominantly so far this season.  Lackey wouldn’t be able to continue that trend and got knocked around a little bit by the Yanks offense.

Lester Gets First Win As Sox Top Yanks

The Red Sox haven’t given Jon Lester much run support in the 2014 season even though he has pitched well in each outing so far.  Last night it seemed like Lester might suffer the same fate, but in the 6th inning the bats finally had Lester’s back for him to get his first win. Lester continued to pitch like the ace he is this season.  Lester was up against CC Sabathia and it...

Sox Fall to Yanks in Series Opener

The Red Sox came into the Bronx to face the Yankees and Jacoby Ellsbury in pinstripes for the first time.  Clay Buchholz was on the mound and he hoped to have a better outing than his first start where he was pummeled by the Brewers.  Buchholz pitched better, but still had shaky moments that allowed the Yanks to get on the board and run away with the win. For the first few innings...

Papi Blast Away and Brings the Win For the Sox

The Sox needed the win this afternoon in order to salvage the series before heading out of town to the Bronx.  The Sox had Jake Peavy on the mound vs. Robbie Ross for the Rangers.  Peavy would once again pitch well, but the game would come down to the late innings and Papi’s clutch bat to bring the win to the Sox. Much of the game was a very low scoring game.  Both starting...

Doubront Struggles as Sox Fall to Rangers

Last night the Sox had Felix Doubront on the mound, but not for long.  Doubront struggled and didn’t last through the 3rd inning.  The Sox got down early and while they battled back, it would be too little too late and they’d fall to the Rangers. Doubront pitched two scoreless innings to start the game, but the 3rd inning would be his undoing.  Dubi gave up a leadoff HR to...

Sox Beat Rangers for First Fenway Win

The Red Sox were just swept by the Brewers and hoped having John Lackey on the mound would be just what they would need to get their first win at Fenway in 2014.  Lackey continued his stellar pitching and the bats were able to keep the home team in front on the scoreboard last night. The Red Sox got their first run in 2nd inning when Jackie Bradley Jr hit an RBI single to score...

Sox Swept Away By Brewers in First Home Series

The Red Sox haven’t had the homecoming they had hoped for with the Brewers sweeping the series.  The Sox had problems both with pitching and scoring runs.  Yesterday it was ace Lester on the mound and once again he didn’t get any run support from the bats as he collected his 2nd loss of the season. Lester gave up his first runs in the 2nd inning when he gave up an RBI single...
