Daily Red Sox Links: Rick Porcello, Mookie Betts, Andrew Benintendi

Saturday brought more of the same for Rick Porcello, and that’s not a good thing. (Ian Browne; RedSox.com) What exactly is leading to these uncharacteristic control issues for the righty? (Rob Bradford; WEEI) The other story from Saturday’s game was Chris Davis finally getting a hit. He was understandably very relieved, and had some nice things to say about the Fenway crowd. (Tom Keegan; Boston Herald) On a more positive note, here’s a story on just what Mookie Betts is going to do with all of his trophies. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic) ($$) You can expect to see Andrew Benintendi in...

Red Sox 5, Orioles 9: So we’re back to this, huh?

A not good very bad day for the pitching. Well, it was fun while it lasted. The Red Sox had won their previous two games as they tried to turn a corner following their horrid start to the season. They looked to Rick Porcello to hold the momentum set by Eduardo Rodriguez on Friday, but he was not up to the task. The righty’s control was totally nonexistent as it has been all year, and he walked five guys in just four-plus innings of work, allowing eleven baserunners total on the day. He did a decent job in limiting damage as he was only charged with three runs, but that wasn’t...

Orioles' Chris Davis breaks record hitless streak with two-run single off Rick Porcello

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis’ nightmare start ended with a two-out single in the first inning of Saturday’s game against the Boston Red Sox, ending a hitless start to the season that saw him set major-league records for consecutive at-bats (54) and plate appearances (62) without a hit dating...

Game 15 Gamethread: Red Sox vs. Orioles

The Red Sox will look to turn this into a real streak on Saturday as a win will push it up to three in a row. They got the pitching on Friday night, even if a rough outing from Tyler Thornburg made things look a little worse than they had to be. Rick Porcello will try to pick up where Eduardo Rodriguez left off, with Andrew Cashner taking the hill for the Orioles. First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 PM ET, and this will be your space to discuss the game.

Red Sox vs. Orioles lineup: Rick Porcello looks to continue winning streak, Chris Davis show

Today’s game is not without its share of morbid curiosity. The Red Sox (5-9) can sustain their first official winning streak of 2019 with a victory over the Orioles (5-9) this afternoon at Fenway Park (1:05 p.m., NESN, MLBN out-of-market). Rick Porcello pitches for the Sox.

OTM Open Thread 4/13: It is Saturday

Happy Saturday everyone. The Red Sox won their second game in a row on Friday night, the first time they’ve accomplished that feat in 2019. We’ll see if Eduardo Rodriguez shining on the mound can spark a trend of success for a rotation that desperately needs to turn things around. That’ll be put to the test this afternoon with Rick Porcello taking on Andrew Cashner for an afternoon game. Then, in the evening, the Bruins look to even up their first round series against the Maple Leafs. But the big one and the game that matters most today is at 8:00 PM ET in Buffalo. UMass is playing...

In today’s links, we look at the ups and downs of Red Sox pitching. Chris Sale has tried. David Price has tried. Nathan Eovaldi has tried. Rick Porcello has tried. All of them have largely failed. Where did it all go wrong for the Red Sox and their starters and can it be fixed? (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) On the bright side, Darwinzon Hernandez could be on his way to helping the rotation in a major way in the next few years. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston) In addition, Ryan Brasier has been pretty great out of the bullpen. (Mike Cratty; WEEI) He and Matt Barnes are part of a relief...

D-backs 15, Red Sox 8: Arizona blows roof off Chase Field

And not even a haboob in sight. Record: 4-4. Pace: 81-81. Change on 2018: -2. Opening Day at Chase Field is a time to shine, with a capacity crowd in attendance. The D-backs offense certainly got that memo, pounding Rick Porcello and the Boston pitchers. [The now 2-7 Red Sox have not had a worse start to their season since World War II ended] However, word of the festivities did not apparently reach the roof at Chase Field, which made a literally half-hearted attempt at opening, before failing, due to what the team said was an electrical fault. Despite my helpful suggestion that they...

Red Sox 8, Diamondbacks 15: Rock bottom

There are no words I really don’t know how to describe what I just watched. It’s hard to imagine things could get any worse for this team, but know that I’m knocking on every wood surface I can find as I type this. The Red Sox were thoroughly embarrassed in Arizona on Friday. The offense had one solid inning in which they failed to maximize their chance. Rick Porcello had a couple strong innings before imploding. The defense made multiple mistakes. Brian Johnson gave up a billion runs. This was the definition of a gut punch in the midst of a road trip that has continued to go from bad...
