Sox Beat O’s and Split Series in Rain Shortened Game

The Red Sox have the 11:00am start on Marathon Monday, so players on both teams probably showed up exhausted to the ballpark.  The Sox had Justin Masterson on the mound vs. Wei-Yin Chen for the O’s.  Not only was it an early start, but it was a rainy, windy, cold day out at the park. […]

Sox Lose Second Straight Game Behind Poor Pitching

The Red Sox were sold to us this off season as a potent offense with some question marks about who the ace of the rotation would be.  The Sox offense has shown promise, but it has also shown that the pitching rotation has more questions than answers.  Rick Porcello took the mound this afternoon in […]

Orioles Take Second Game of Series

The Red Sox entered the game having taken the first game of the series and looking for more.  The Sox had Clay Buchholz on the mound who had one of the worst outing of his career in his last start vs. Chris Tillman for the O’s.  The Sox would go down early and then the […]

Red Sox Walk Off in the 9th!

The Red Sox set off a 4 game series with the O’s with Joe Kelly on the mound vs. Ubaldo Jimenez.  Kelly had just come off a spectacular start in New York and hoped to build on that.  Kelly pitched well, but the game ended up in the hands of the bullpen. The game stayed […]

Nats Beat Up Sox on Their Way Outta Town

The Red Sox had already taken the series before the game began this afternoon, but were hoping for their first sweep of the season.  The Sox had Wade Miley on the mound verses Gio Gonzalez for the Nationals.  Miley, who is usually a ground ball pitcher, looked to be in trouble early when a lot […]

Joe Kelly – Big Win

Red Sox hurler Joe Kelly has a reputation as a bit of a flake. Before Game 6 of the 2013 NLCS, he engaged in a “staredown” of Dodger outfielder Scott Van Slyke, with neither man moving for 15 minutes as the ground crew prepared the field. He also wears glasses to better see his catcher’s […]

Koji Gets First Save of the Season in Comeback Win!

The Red Sox took the field again at Fenway against the Nationals and this time had Justin Masterson on the mound verses Stephen Strasburg for the Nats.  Masterson looked pretty good until the 5th inning when everything fell apart for him.  However the Red Sox battled back and capitalized on Nationals errors in the 7th […]

Mookie Betts Is A Superstar in Fenway Opener!

The Red Sox opened up the season at Fenway with a pretty 4-2 record.  The Sox had Rick Porcello on the mound who they hoped would not follow Clay Buchholz’s lead from the night before.  Porcello pitched 8 strong innings and got his first win in a Sox uniform.  The true star of the game […]
