Daily Red Sox Links: Brian Johnson, Eduardo Rodriguez, Brock Holt

Today’s links look back at Brian Johnson’s great start, the lineup’s ability to avoid strikeouts and an update on Brock Holt. Brian Johnson has had a long road to the majors, but he showed on Saturday why he’s continued to fight. (Rob Bradford; WEEI) Strikeouts have continued to trend upwards around the league, but the Red Sox have somehow been immune to that trend. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal) Eduardo Rodriguez has taken a step forward this season. Chris Sale and David Price have been big reasons why. (Scott Lauber; Boston Herald) It’s going to be a little while until...

Dodgers hit four home runs, complete sweep of Chicago Cubs

LOS ANGELES — Clayton Kershaw did little to help the Dodgers sweep the Chicago Cubs on Sunday. Fortunately for Kershaw, Cubs starter Jon Lester did even less to prevent a sweep.

After 'terrible' start, Jordan Zimmermann knows he's not meeting expectations

They brought me over here to be a big-time pitcher, and Im not doing that right now, he said. I need to focus in and get back on track. CHICAGO -- The frustrations are mounting for Jordan Zimmermann, who gave up three more home runs in the Detroit Tigers' series-ending loss to the Chicago White Sox on Sunday. After the game, he acknowledged publicly what has become painfully obvious: He's not meeting the expectations that come with the five-year, $110 million contract he signed before the 2016 season. "They brought me over here to be a big-time pitcher, and I'm...

Koda Glover closing a breath of fresh air for Washington Nationals

Will Koda Glover be able to stop the bleeding at the back of the Nationals’ bullpen? Until about a week ago, when Washington three outs away from securing a victory, the universal emotion overcoming everyone involved with the Nationals was dread. Hyperventilating, although not suggested, was certainly warranted. The role of closer should have been set a long time ago. It should have been settled in November, December, January (three months in which the Nats had the opportunity to acquire Kenley Jansen, Mark Melancon, Aroldis Chapman, David Robertson, and Greg Holland). They never got...

Dodgers 9, Cubs 4: An unexpected slugfest

Jon Lester and Clayton Kershaw were not good Sunday. Unfortunately, Lester was worse. If I had told you Sunday morning that the Cubs would hit three home runs off Clayton Kershaw and chase him from the game before the fifth inning ended, and that he would throw 109 pitches and allow 11 Cubs hits, you’d have been pretty happy, right? Unfortunately, Jon Lester kept putting Dodgers runners on base and giving up three-run homers, exiting the game an inning before Kershaw did. Thus ended the “pitcher’s duel” between two of the best in the game. Combined, Lester and Kershaw threw 7⅔...

White Sox 7, Tigers 3: Hello, third place

Not even a rain delay could throw Miguel Gonzalez off his game. Perfect through six innings, the White Sox starter tossed a gem only allowing three runs in 7.2 innings as home runs by Melky Cabrera, Todd Frazier, Matt Davidson, and the little league variety for Willy Garcia powered Chicago by Detroit, 7-3. The scoring started in the third inning after a leadoff walk by Omar Narvaez. Willy Garcia smashed a 2-1 fastball off Tigers starter Jordan Zimmermann over Alex Presley's head in center. Narvaez easily scored from first, and with Garcia on his way to third, Tigers shortstop Jose...
