Ortiz Homer Lifts Red Sox Past Tigers

Ortiz Homer Lifts Red Sox Past Tigers

Duane Burleson/Getty Images(DETROIT, Mich.) — David Ortiz launched a three-run home run to right field in the top of the ninth as the Boston Red Sox came from behind to defeat the Detroit Tigers 5-3 on Sunday night. The win snapped a five game losing streak for Boston (28-34), and was the team’s first win against Detroit (33-26) this season.
The Red Sox took the initial lead on a Dustin Pedroia sacrifice fly in the third before Detroit answered with runs in the third and fourth innings. Victor Martinez doubled home Miguel Cabrera to give the Tigers a 2-1 advantage in the fourth. 
Both starting pitchers were able to keep their team in the game as it approached the late innings. Detroit’s Anibal Sanchez went six innings before turning things over to the bullpen while John Lackey (7-4) tossed eight frames allowing just two earned runs.
After Mike Napoli homered in his return from the disabled list to tie things up, Eugenio Suarez laced his second RBI single of the night to left to give Detroit a 3-2 lead after eight innings. Boston had a chance to take the lead in the seventh when Brock Holt tripled to begin the inning, however Phil Coke was able to reitre the side, including inducing a deep flyout off the bat of Ortiz.
Joba Chamberlain (1-3) pitched the ninth in favor of struggling closer Joe Nathan, who threw 32 pitches the previous night. Holt again started the rally with a leadoff single before Pedroia worked a one out walk. Then, with Napoli looming on-deck, Ortiz blasted his 14th homer of the year, giving Boston the lead. Koji Uehara threw a perfect bottom of the ninth to earn his 12th save of the season.

Four Red Sox Ejected in Walk-Off Win

Four Red Sox Ejected in Walk-Off Win

Winslow Townson/Getty Images(BOSTON, Mass.) — A.J. Pierzynski hit a walk-off triple in the bottom of the tenth inning as the Boston Red Sox rallied to beat Tampa Bay, 4-3, on Friday night. The game included four ejections, all against the Red Sox (25-29), and a pair of benches clearing scuffles.
It all began in the bottom of the first inning when David Price plunked David Ortiz on the first pitch. That prompted warnings to be issued to be both teams and for Boston manager John Farrell to be ejected. Price later hit Mike Carp in the forth, clearing the dugouts for the first time. When Price did not get tossed for hitting his second batter of the game, bench coach and interim manager Torey Lovullo expressed his displeasure by throwing his hat to the ground.
Red Sox starter Brandon Workman retaliated by throwing behind Tampa Bay’s (23-32) Evan Longoria in the sixth. Both Workman and then-manager Brian Butterfield to also be ejected, making hitting coach Greg Colbrunn the fourth skipper of the day.
“When we have four people ejected and also have three people hit by pitches, and they have none, that’s a hard one to figure out,” said Farrell.
Boston would get the last laugh though. Trailing 2-0 in the fifth, Ortiz laced an RBI single to left before Xander Bogaerts doubled home the tying run in the seventh. It would remain scoreless until the tenth when Jonny Gomes walked ahead of Pierzynski’s game-winning hit. It was the Red Sox fifth straight win after losing 10 in a row.

Ortiz Held Out of Starting Lineup Due to Sore Right Calf

Ortiz Held Out of Starting Lineup Due to Sore Right Calf

Scott Cunningham/Getty Images(BOSTON) — Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz was scratched from the team’s starting lineup Thursday against the Atlanta Braves due to right calf soreness.
                                                                         

Ortiz did enter the game in the eighth inning as a pinch-hitter and was intentionally walked, but then was replaced by a pinch-runner.
                                                                                            The 38-year-old Ortiz has been dealing with calf issues throughout the season and he missed last Saturday’s game due to his calf.
                                                                                                                                       

“After two full days at first base (in Atlanta) and another at DH last night, it was best to hold him out tonight,” Red Sox skipper John Farrell said. “This is precautionary, just want to not put him at risk any further.”
Ortiz is hitting .270, with 12 home runs, 30 RBIs and a .372 on-base percentage this season.

Red Sox Place Pitcher Clay Buchholz on the DL

Red Sox Place Pitcher Clay Buchholz on the DL

Jim Rogash/Getty Images(BOSTON) — Clay Buchholz’ rough 2014 season has taken another turn as the team has placed him on the 15-day disabled list with a  hyper-extended left knee.
Buchholz suffered the injury in his last start against the Atlanta Braves on Monday, but he has also been ineffective this season.
After a bullpen session on Wednesday, the team felt it was best to shut him down.
“When he got into the bullpen, probably the 18- or 20-pitch mark, there was some feeling of some instability,” manager John Farrell said. “Can’t say that it’s structural, but when he tried to get increased intensity and get some finish to pitches, there was a sensation that was being felt, and we shut him down at that time.”
The 29-year-old Buchholz is off to the worst start of his career in 2014. In 10 starts, Buchholz is 2-4 with a 7.02 ERA with a 1.98 WHIP.
He’s spent his entire eight-year career with the Red Sox.

Red Sox Beat Braves, Snap Skid

Red Sox Beat Braves, Snap Skid

Scott Cunningham/Getty Images(ATLANTA, Ga.) — David Ortiz hadn’t homered since May 14 and was hitting just .118 with no runs batted in in his last 10 games. Coincidentally, the Boston Red Sox had not won since May 14 and lost their previous 10 contests.
In the top of the sixth inning, trailing 6-3 at Atlanta, and with two runners on base, Ortiz launched a three-run homer to left center that tied the ballgame. He later drove in the go-ahead run on a sacrifice fly in the seventh as the Red Sox (21-29) defeated the Braves, 8-6, to snap their longest skid in two decades.
“It’s been too long since we last shook hands following a win,” said Boston manager John Farrell. The Red Sox were in danger of tying the record for most consecutive losses by a defending World Series champion. The 1998 Florida Marlins dropped 11 in a row twice during their 1997 title defense. Boston had not lost 10 straight since the 1994 season.
An optimistic start for the Red Sox saw Jackie Bradley, Jr. drive in Grady Sizemore for the games first run in the third. However, starting pitcher Clay Buchholz walked a career high eight batters and did not make it out of the fourth inning. The Braves (28-22) scored three runs in both the third and fourth innings to chase the righty.
“It seems to be snowballing on me right now,” said Buchholz who allowed six runs on four hits before being lifted in the fourth without recording an out.
Boston rallied though, beginning with a two-run single by Dustin Pedroia in the sixth, which immediately preceeded Ortiz’s game-tying blast off Atlanta’s Ervin Santana. There was a near 90-minute rain delay before the inning was finally ended.
The Red Sox bats, and bullpen, finally came through when Ortiz lifted a fly ball to deep right field in the seventh that put Boston ahead, 7-6. A.J. Pierzynski then singled home another run while the bullpen held Atlanta off the boards for the final five innings.
Ian Thomas (1-2) was saddled with the loss after giving up the two runs in the seventh, while Edward Mujica (2-1) got the win for Boston. Koji Uehara earned his 10th save of the season, getting Andrelton Simmons to ground into a game-ending double play in the ninth.

Rays Hand Red Sox 9th Straight Loss, 6-5 in 15 Innings

iStockphoto(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) — The Tampa Bay Rays (22-28) outlasted the Boston Red Sox (20-28) in 15 innings on Saturday, 6-5, sending the defending champions to their ninth straight defeat.
Rays pinch-runner Cole Figueroa scored the winning run from second base after Red Sox reliever Andrew Miller (1-4) threw the ball into centerfield while attempting to start a double play.
Boston jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead in the top of the first inning with catcher A.J. Pierzynski leading the way with a three-run home run off of Rays starter David Price. Tampa Bay tied the game at 5-5 in the fifth on a two-run double by Rays outfielder Brandon Guyer.
Rays left-handed pitcher Cesar Ramos (2-3) picked up the win in relief, tossing three scoreless innings.

Red Sox Place Victorino on DL

Hannah Foslien/Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) — Boston Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a strained right hamstring.
The 33-year-old Victorino injured the hamstring after running out a bunt in the ninth inning Friday night.
Victorino has already missed 22 games this season due to the hamstring, which was injured in the team’s last spring training game.
The 11-season major league veteran has played in 21 games for the Red Sox this season hitting .242 with one home run, 10 runs scored and 10 RBIs.
Boston recalled outfielder Daniel Nava from Triple-A Pawtucket to take Victorino’s place.
Nava started the season in Boston but hit .149 in 17 games before being demoted.

Red Sox will Start Stephen Drew Out in Class A

Red Sox will Start Stephen Drew Out in Class A

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) — The Boston Red Sox are eager to get newly-signed shortstop Stephen Drew into their lineup, but they’ll start him out in Class A Greenville Drive as he gets into game shape.
Drew signed with the team earlier this week because he coudln’t find a team willing to take on the draft compensation or his high salary, so now he’s back with the Red Sox.
The Red Sox plan for now is to start Drew for two games at shortstop, and DH for another. Once they see how he performs, they’ll promote him to Doulbe-A Portland or Triple-A Pawtucket.
Known primarily for his work with a glove, the 31-year-old Drew had a nice offensive season in 2013 for the Red Sox. In 124 games, Drew batted .253 with 13 home runs and also drove in 67 runs.
The Red Sox will take help any way they can get it. After winning the World Series last season, the team has struggled to regain their championship form.
Through 47 games, the team is fourth in the AL East a 20-27.
