Daily Red Sox Links: Chris Sale, Darwinzon Hernandez, Edwin Encarnación

Chris Sale was back on the mound in Baltimore on Saturday, and he’ll never forget how it all got started for him there. (Julian Benbow; Boston Globe) Darwinzon Hernandez just made his first major-league start, but he’s also still struggling with control down in Portland. Despite that, he’ll be on his way up to Pawtucket after a promotion. (Christopher Smith; Masslive) The Red Sox continued to sign a good chunk of their draft class, this time including top pick Cameron Cannon. (Zachary Silver; RedSox.com) Edwin Encarnación is back in the division. (Rob Bradford; WEEI) Angel Hernandez...

Red Sox 7, Orioles 2: Make it four in a row

Red Sox 7, Orioles 2: Make it four in a row

Chris Sale shines and J.D. Martinez goes deep. The Red Sox were coming off a blowout victory on Friday in which they scored a whopping 13 runs and ran away with the win in the series opener in Baltimore. They were looking for a similar performance on Saturday, but for much of the game it looked like the familiar story where they failed to back up Chris Sale with run support. They eventually did get on the board in the sixth and J.D. Martinez added some insurance with a home run, and the Red Sox have now won four in a row. You know how some of your friends have that one story they tell over...

Dylan Bundy solid again, but Red Sox ace Chris Sale is too much for Orioles in 7-2 Boston win

It probably didn’t matter how well Dylan Bundy pitched Saturday. When Boston Red Sox ace Chris Sale is on his game, anyone starting against him has to be better than good. Bundy was very good for five innings. He allowed just four hits and equaled his season high with eight strikeouts. But the...

Red Sox at Orioles lineup: Sale day on the Inner Harbor

Red Sox at Orioles lineup: Sale day on the Inner Harbor

He’s been lights-out, and now he gets Baltimore. The Red Sox (37-34) might have another laugher on their hands against the Orioles (21-48) this afternoon as the white-hot Chris Sale faces down a sad lineup at 4:05 p.m. Baseball’s funny, but I dunno if it’s funny enough to overcome a Sale who has 22 strikeouts in his last 16 innings, all scoreless, one night after the Red Sox beat back the O’s 13-2. Maybe O’s starter Dylan Bundy can pull something out of his hat — he’s fine, but if he gets lit up early and it’s back to the Baltimore bullpen, that’s bad, for them and good...

Red Sox 3, Rangers 4: A very 2019 kind of game

Red Sox 3, Rangers 4: A very 2019 kind of game

Bad situational offense and poor pitching from the bullpen. The Red Sox were coming off a really tough weekend against the Rays and could desperately have used a big start to this four-game set against the Rangers that kicked off Monday. Early on, things were golden. The offense scored two runs in the first thanks to an Andrew Benintendi home run and Chris Sale was sailing. The latter continued that, going seven strong innings. The offense, however, fell asleep after the first two batters and failed to score again the rest of the night. That put it all on Matt Barnes in the ninth with a...

This is a Rick Porcello appreciation post

This is a Rick Porcello appreciation post

With the Red Sox being the home of Chris Sale, Nathan Eovaldi and David Price, it’s rare to find yourself in a situation where you are truly thankful for a guy like Rick Porcello, but here we are. After being told that he wasn’t going to get a contract extension before the season started, it would have been easy for him to let that affect his mentality — and it very well could have been lingering in the back of his mind when he gave up 16 runs in his first two starts. But he’s been (mostly) a picture of consistency since then really, and it couldn’t be coming at a better time with...
