Bullpen Meltdown Costs Sox First Place, Falll, 6-4

Bullpen Meltdown Costs Sox First Place, Falll, 6-4

(AP Photo)It had to happen sooner or later. The Red Sox bullpen, taxed mightily in the last few weeks, folded yesterday in a devastating 6-4 loss in Kansas City. Ahead 4-2 in the eighth inning—thanks to another solid performance by Drew Pomeranz—three walks (by relievers Matt Barnes and Robby Scott) led to a game-winning grand slam (coughed up by Scott). Poof! Game gone First place gone. Again, the offense mustered just five hits—including back-to-back solo HRs by Andrew Benintendi and Xander Bogaerts. A seven-game Fenway stint awaits—but lousy pitching doesn't get any better with...

Red Sox "Sale" Into First Place With 8-3 Pasting Of KC

(AP Photo)Finally, Chris Sale got some run support. The lefty's teammates put up eight runs on thirteen hits—allowing them to move into sole possession of first place in the AL East. The 8-3 win was paced by Xander Bogaerts (2-5, 2 RBIs), Sandy Leon (2-4, 2 RBIs) and Deven Marrero (2-2, RBI). All this offense was done with three top contributors on the bench—Dustin Pedroia, Andrew Benintendi and Mitch Moreland. For Sale's part, he once set down 19 Royals in a row—until a blip in the ninth. He finished with 8.1 innings, three earned runs and just four hits. In his ninth win of 2017, he...

Daily Red Sox Links: Xander Bogaerts, Hanley Ramirez, Christian Vazquez

Today we ask if Xander Bogaerts is underrated, when Hanley Ramirez will start hitting and if Christian Vazquez is back to being a defensive asset. Xander Bogaerts hit two home runs on Sunday. He’s tied for second among shortstops in fWAR (2.5) and fourth in wRC+ (119). Yet it still seems like he’s underrated. (Evan Davis; FanRag Sports) While Bogaerts has been great and only getting better, Hanley Ramirez still hasn’t been able to put it together entirely. (Brett Cowett; BP Boston) Christian Vazquez is known as a defensive catcher, but he hasn’t been dominant in that regard so far....

Boston Red Sox: Xander Bogaerts has first two-home run game

Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts entered Sunday with just two home runs on the season. That wouldn’t stay the case for long though, as he enjoyed the first multi-home run game of his career. Bogaerts has been considered one of the best offensive shortstops in baseball for some time now. Despite that, his home run […] The post Boston Red Sox: Xander Bogaerts has first two-home run game appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

(AP Photo)Xander Bogaerts doubled his season home run total by smacking two, while Andrew Benintendi and Christina Vazquez gunned down key runners in Boston's 6-5 win over the 'oh-so-mighty' Astros. The win moved the Red Sox into a virtual first-place tie with The Bronx Embalmers—who lost their sixth straight. David Price was just barely good enough to win—going five innings and giving up three earned runs (and two HRs in 107 pitches). Five bullpen members went four innings—giving up two earned runs. Craig Kimbrel closed it out in the ninth for his 20th save. On to Kansas City.

Heyman’s Latest: Betts, Santana, Rays, Bautista, Braves, Arrieta, Holland

The Red Sox looked into a long-term extension with Mookie Betts last winter, but both Betts and Xander Bogaerts are comfortable in year-to-year deals for now, FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman reports.  Betts is already making a nice sum in endorsement deals, so it perhaps isn’t surprising that he (and Bogaerts) are in no rush to…

REPORT: Red Sox Tried To Lock-Up Betts Long-Term

REPORT: Red Sox Tried To Lock-Up Betts Long-Term

(Red Sox Team Photo: Michael Ivins)According to Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com, the Red Sox tried—this past offseason—to sign Mookie Betts to a long-term deal. The 24-year old —for now—prefers to go with a year-to-year contract situation. Kudos to the Boston front office for making the effort—which they should continue to pursue relentlessly. Xander Bogaerts has also preferred to go with the year-to-year approach—as do many young player in MLB today. Boston is paying Betts generously this year ($950,000), but the team absolutely needs to lock this kid up for his entire career.

(AP Photo)Mookie Bets went 4-5—including two home runs—to help propel the Red Sox to a 7-3 win over the hapless Phillies. Boston built a 5-0 early lead—but the Fightins' cut it 5-3 against Sox starter Brian Johnson. Xander Bogaerts added three RBIs as Boston climbed to within two games of the losing Empire. The Carmine Hose bullpen continued to shine—allowing just two hits over 6.2 innings after Johnson left early with an arm injury. Boston is now a season-high nine games over .500 as they wrap up this weird "home-and-home" Inter-League series tonight.
