Clay Buchholz struggled again after being spotted an early lead and the Boston Red Sox (25-17) fell 4-2 to the Cleveland Indians (22-17) on Friday night at Fenway Park. Corey Kluber turned in a dominant start despite giving up runs in the first two innings, and the Sox offense never got back on track.
The red-hot Boston Red Sox (22-14) were cooled off tonight by both the rain and the Houston Astros (15-22). Steven Wright gave up a four run lead and could not get out of the fifth inning. Houston out hit Boston 13 to 11 and scored six unanswered runs at one point to end the home team’s winning streak.
If the weather cooperates, the Boston Red Sox (22-13) and the Houston Astros (14-22) will play game two of their series tonight at Fenway Park. The BoSox offense has put up 51 runs over the past four games, and they look to continue their hot streak to greet Astros starter Lance McCullers properly in his 2016 debut. Here is a look at the starting lineups, pregame notes, and daily links for May 13, 2016.
The Boston Red Sox (18-13) had the right stuff tonight as they cracked four home runs and got a complete game gem from their starter Steven Wright. New York Yankees (11-18) starter Luis Severino pitched pretty well himself, but his several mistakes ended up leading directly to Boston runs. The Red Sox capitalized and defeated their New York rivals on Sunday Night Baseball for the second time in the span of a week.
Despite amassing 13 hits, the Boston Red Sox (17-12) offense could only score twice tonight and fell a run short to the New York Yankees (10-17). Starters Rick Porcello and Michael Pineda matched each other until the seventh inning when Aaron Hicks hit the decisive homer. Boston’s ninth inning rally was cut short by poor umpiring and an inability to get the big hit.
The rivalry is renewed for the 2016 season as the New York Yankees (8-12) come to Fenway Park for a weekend series against the Boston Red Sox (12-10). Lefty Henry Owens will look to have a better second outing after lasting only 3.1 innings in his season debut. The Yanks counter by sending their ace, Masahiro Tanaka, to the mound. First pitch is at 7:10 PM. Here is a look at the starting lineups, injury updates, and pre-game notes for April 29, 2016.
For the second straight night, Jackie Bradley Jr. was the offensive hero. Through six innings, the Boston Red Sox (10-9) and the Atlanta Braves (4-15) only had three hits apiece. Rick Porcello and Julio Teheran both pitched stellar starts, but a lone homer by the Sox centerfielder provided just enough scoring to give Boston a 1-0 victory.
The Boston Red Sox (8-9) aim to win the series from the Houston Astros (6-12) tonight on Sunday Night Baseball. Lefty Henry Owens makes his 2016 debut for the Sox following three strong starts in Pawtucket. Xander Bogaerts returns to the lineup after missing yesterday’s contest due to wrist soreness. Here is a look at the starting lineups and pregame notes for April 24, 2016.
The Boston Red Sox (7-8) visit the Houston Astros (5-11) tonight at 8:10 PM to begin a five-game road trip. The first homestand of the year was a disappointment, as the BoSox went 4-6 after losing a slugfest yesterday. A change of scenery could be a good thing, with Red Sox hitters looking to continue their success against Houston pitching. Boston will also have a new arm in the bullpen for this contest. Here is a look at the starting lineups and pregame notes for April 22, 2016.
The Boston Red Sox (6-4) defeated the Toronto Blue Jays (5-7) for the fourth time in five games this season thanks in part to a three-run blast by Xander Bogaerts. David Price limited the visitors to two runs over seven innings and struck out nine.
