Adam Belue

Adam Belue

My name is Adam Belue, I'm from Fall River, MA, and I'm a sports fanatic.  I'll watch and write about just about any and every sport, even the fringe ones that aren't really sports like bowling, poker, and ultimate frisbee.  I'm a huge Green Bay Packers fan, and a self-proclaimed New England Patriots hater (and proud of it!)... which makes my job in a sporting goods store quite interesting.  I'm a big fan of the other local teams (Bruins, Red Sox, and Celtics), along with the Alabama Crimson Tide and college football as a whole.  I may be a bit obsessed (or a lot obsessed) with Taylor Swift, and I've seen her in concert four times so far... some of the best times I've had by the way her concerts are quite the experience!  I'm also a huge tennis fan, and have played the sport for a good majority of my life.  I wish more people watched and appreciated tennis.  I'm currently a part of the Boston Bruins and Boston Red Sox Beat Team on CLNS Radio, and post a weekly fantasy football and college football column during the season.  

Doug Fister tossed a quality start, pitching into the seventh inning in his Red Sox debut, but his offense failed to support him in a 4-2 loss on Sunday afternoon.  Angels' pitching allowed just two solo homers to earn a series win over the Sox, who scored just five runs combined in their last two games.

Here are the pregame news and notes, along with starting lineups, for today's matinee contest between the Boston Red Sox and the Kansas City Royals, along with updates on the injuries to Hanley Ramirez, Dustin Pedroia, and Eduardo Rodriguez.

Rick Porcello continued to struggle in the month of June, allowing seven runs on ten hits in Boston's 7-1 loss to Houston on Saturday night.  Chris Young had the only extra-base hit of the night for the Red Sox, as his third homer of the year was Boston's only offense.

A late home run by Mookie Betts, combined with a solid start from Drew Pomeranz and another scoreless outing from the Sox' bullpen, gave Boston a 2-1 win over the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park on Friday night.

Hector Velazquez earned his first MLB victory in relief of starter Brian Johnson, while Mookie Betts hit two homers to push the Red Sox to their third straight victory over the Phillies.  Velazquez and the Sox' bullpen tossed 5.2 scoreless innings after Johnson left the game in the third with a shoulder injury.

Justin Upton's grand slam in the fifth inning broke the game wide open, as the Tigers prevented the Red Sox from sweeping their three-game set on Sunday night.  Drew Pomeranz allowed six runs in 4.1 innings, which could have been even worse if not for some outstanding defense by Xander Bogaerts during the early stages of the contest.

Although everyone is still talking about what David Price did after Wednesday's 8-0 loss, what was even more disgraceful was the lineup that John Farrell started in a game that could have put the Red Sox back in first place in the AL East.

The PawSox continued their climb back to .500 last week, as they continued their season-long winning streak before alternating wins and losses to end the week.  Bryce Brentz led the way offensively, with Ryan Court pushing his average close to the .300 mark with several multi-hit games.  Hector Velazquez earned another win, with Brandon Workman and the rest of the PawSox bullpen impressing last weekend.

David Price pitched into the eighth inning, allowing just a single run while striking out seven in Boston's 5-2 win over the Orioles on Saturday night at Camden Yards.  Hanley Ramirez hit a two-run homer and had an RBI double for Boston, who earned their first win of the four-game series in Baltimore.  Craig Kimbrel was shaky in the ninth, as he allowed his first run in over a month before locking down the victory.

Rick Porcello gets the nod on Friday night for the Boston Red Sox, as they look to bounce back from last night's loss to the Baltimore Orioles.  The Sox will be missing last night's starter Eduardo Rodriguez for at least 10 days, as he was placed on the DL earlier today.  Craig Kimbrel is also in the news, as he was honored for his remarkable month of May.  That news plus lineups for both teams are ahead in the Pregame Notes!
