Red Sox vs. Blue Jays lineup: The return of Steady Eddie

Red Sox vs. Blue Jays lineup: The return of Steady Eddie

He may not be consistent from pitch to pitch, but Eduardo Rodriguez’s bottom line is remarkably easy to predict. The Red Sox (66-30) try to rebound from last night’s Rick Porcello disaster when they face the Blue Jays (43-50) this afternoon at Fenway Park (1:05 p.m., NESN, MLBN out-of-market) behind Eduardo Rodriguez (11-3, 3.62 ERA). About today’s game: E-Rod looks to pick up the pieces for a shattered Pretty Ricky vs. Sam Gaviglio (2-3, 4.70 ERA), a hanger-on in the Blue Jays rotation who could be just what the doctor ordered, except the offense has been just fine. If it keeps up,...

Most of the blame should be placed on the shoulders of starter Rick Porcello for having an extremely off night.Or maybe the Red Sox did not want to get greedy and extend their 10-game winning streak any further.Perhaps Friday the 13th was behind it.The Blue Jays probably played a cameo as well, but whatever the cause, the reality was that for the first time in 12 days, the Red Sox remembered how to lose a baseball game Friday night.Torontos 13-7 victory spoiled the fun for a buzzing Fenway Park crowd of 37,018 that was hoping to witness victory No. 67 in only Game No. 96.

Red Sox 7, Blue Jays 13: Rick Porcello’s very bad not good night ends the streak

Red Sox 7, Blue Jays 13: Rick Porcello’s very bad not good night ends the streak

Well, it was bound to happen eventually Well, that’s not how you want to see a streak end. Obviously, the Red Sox weren’t going to win out the rest of the way, but this was a jarring game. To be fair, it wasn’t all bad. The offense had itself a good night — though it was still frustrating for them at times — but it couldn’t overcome an awful night for the pitching. More specifically, it couldn’t overcome an awful night for Rick Porcello. We’ve seen bad versions of the righty before, but this was something different. He was nowhere close to the strike zone, and when he did...

Red Sox vs. Blue Jays lineup: Winning streaks are better when they go to 11

Rick Porcello, who has “11” in his name, takes to the hill. The Red Sox (65-29) look for their 11th straight win when they host the Blue Jays (42-50) tonight at Fenway Park (7:10 p.m., NESN). The pitching matchup is Rick Porcello (11-3, 3.58 ERA) against Ryan Borucki (0-1, 2.25 ERA). Andrew Benintendi sits this one out on the bereavement list, and bestie Brock Holt moves up in the second spot. That’s about it, and we’re behind schedule here, so you go: LINEUPS

Red Sox 7, Royals 4: Another series, another sweep

Red Sox 7, Royals 4: Another series, another sweep

A 7-2 road trip for the Sox. Aaaaaaaand it’s another sweep. The Red Sox finish off their nine-game road trip with a 7-2 record and they have their third sweep in four series. That seems really good! This one was a little frustrating for the first half before Rick Porcello settled in and the offense started to get going. It’s tough to ever go into a series expecting a sweep, but given how bad the Royals are right now this series can reasonably be described as taking care of business. The very early parts of this game were quiet on both sides. Rick Porcello appeared to have some of his...

Red Sox at Royals lineup: Screw it, let’s do 20 runs

Mercy is for the weak! The Red Sox (61-29) look to further humiliate the downtrodden Royals (25-63) when the two “teams” face off this afternoon in Kansas City (2:15 p.m., NESN) behind Rick Porcello (10-3, 3.57 ERA). About today’s game: If Porcello’s ever gonna pitch a perfect game, it’s gonna be today. He almost certainly won’t, but the day game after a brutal night game doesn’t sound like the best recipe for a K.C. team that’s easy to feel sorry for... when you’re not playing them. When you are, never let your foot off the throat! The Royals send emergency starter...
