Red Sox notebook: Alex Cora happy with J.D. Martinez in cleanup spot

Red Sox notebook: Alex Cora happy with J.D. Martinez in cleanup spot

It looks like Alex Cora has settled on a spot in the order for J.D. Martinez.Yesterday was the 18th consecutive game in which Martinez was hitting cleanup. He had previously hit out of the No. 3-hole for 30 straight games, and had been going back and forth between the two before that.“I think I made the move (to fourth) right before the Yankee series (in early August),” Cora said before the 5-4 loss to Cleveland. “And Mitch (Moreland) has gotten a lot of opportunities with men in scoring position and J.D., too. At the same time, J.D. has gotten a lot of at-bats with nobody on base and...

Red Sox 4, Indians 5: Porcello gives up key homers, offense leaves runners on base

Red Sox 4, Indians 5: Porcello gives up key homers, offense leaves runners on base

A great game but a tough loss. This was a frustrating game, as it trended in the wrong direction more and more as the game went on. Early on, it was all Red Sox and everything was looking good. The offense was making Corey Kluber work and doing damage on him, jumping out to an early 3-0 lead. On the other side, Rick Porcello was cruising through the early parts of the game. Kluber settled in, though, and Porcello started to leave some pitches over the plate. Just like that, the script was flipped and Boston dropped their second in a row. Rick Porcello had been alternating good starts and...
