The Boston Red Sox (10-9) look to win three straight games for the second time this season against the Atlanta Braves (4-15) in the second game of the home-and-home series that continues in Boston on Wednesday. Coming off of last night's shutout, Boston looks to David Price (2-0, 7.06) to get a win against Matt Wisler (0-1, 3.10).
Clay Buchholz spun a scoreless gem into the seventh inning, but usually reliable Koji Uehara and Craig Kimbrel blew the final game of the Toronto Blue Jays (7-7) and the Boston Red Sox (6-6) fell 4-3 in the annual morning Patriots Day game.
Well this wasn't predictable at all. After only starting one of the first seven games and getting six at-bats (0-for-6, 4 K's), Pablo Sandoval has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder strain.
The Boston Red Sox (3-3) will look to take game two of a three games series against the undefeated Baltimore Orioles (6-0) after falling 9-7 on Monday in the home opener courtesy of bad outings from David Price and Craig Kimbrel.
The Boston Red Sox (3-2) were unable to complete a road sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays (3-4) as an offense that was so potent in the first four games (28 runs) was stifled by Marco Estrada in a shutout.
The Boston Red Sox (3-1) go for a series road sweep over the Toronto Blue Jays (2-4) at the Rogers Centre looking to have a 4-1 road trip before heading home for the home opener on Monday at 2:05 vs. the Baltimore Orioles.
With Opening Day Take 2 on deck for 1:10 pm in Cleveland, here are a look at pregame notes for the first game of the season.
With the 2016 season just around the corner, the CLNS Radio Red Sox Beat Team gives their predictions of what to expect from the team, with over/under, an x-factor, a breakout player, three bold predictions and where the team will finish this year.
Boston Red Sox top pitching prospect Michael Kopech broke his right hand in an altercation with a teammate and showed up with a cast on his throwing hand to camp on Tuesday.
In a year where most people are looking at Hanley Ramirez, Pablo Sandoval, David Ortiz, David Price and Craig Kimbrel as the keys to the season, I am forging deeper into the team and watching for little-known and seldom talked-about reliever Carson Smith as my player to watch for in 2016.
