Red Sox 4, Orioles 2: Felix Doubront finds his rhythm, Red Sox rebound

Felix Doubront stumbled out of the gates, but recovered in time to turn in a winning performance. Felix Doubront recovered from early struggles and the Red Sox managed to cobble together enough offense in support as Boston rebounded from a disappointing Friday night loss to top the Orioles 4-2. It took Doubront 29 pitches to get out of the first. That's generally not a good sign for any pitcher's outing. He couldn't put batters away, and gave up a run on a trio of baserunners--two hits and a walk--putting the Red Sox in an early hole. Heading to the bottom of the inning wasn't too bad, but...

Borges: Beyond shadow of doubt

Koji Uehara said he battled doubt during his one-inning stint against the Baltimore Orioles yesterday. The Orioles probably doubt that.If Uehara had any doubts they quickly should have been relieved when he relieved set-up man Junichi Tazawa in the ninth inning of a 4-2 Red Sox win at Fenway and struck out J.J. Hardy, Jonathan Schoop and Steve Lombardozzi swinging to record his fourth save of the season and second in three games.The only thing in doubt, it seemed, was whether the Orioles could get their bat on the ball, which basically they did not.

Orioles can't quite figure out warning and Ross

Sox and Doubront show winning form

BOSTON -- It was a win emblematic of the Red Sox 2013 World Series championship season. All the elements were there: a solid starting pitching performance, key situational hitting, the back end of the bullpen keeping it clean, and, oh, even a smattering of fiery emotion. As the Red Sox (8-10) got back within earshot of .500 with a 4-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday, there were signs of the winning baseball the team has struggled to put together through 18 games.

Red Sox 4, Orioles 8: Back to the drawing board

The Red Sox seemed to be on the upswing. Then John Lackey was crushed. On Thursday night, the Red Sox earned a hard-fought win against the Chicago White Sox, overcoming a fantastic performance from Chris Sale with a ninth inning rally. It was a well-played game of baseball. Things were moving in the right direction. On Friday night, they went right back to getting crushed, falling 8-4 to the Orioles. This game was arguably over the second John Lackey took the mound. Concerning news given how his previous start in New York went. The first pitch of the game went for a (replay contested)...

Baseball Notes: Misery loves company in the AL East

There’s no sugarcoating the rough start to the Red Sox’ 2014 season.They’re not alone, though.The club has not found a replacement for Jacoby Ellsbury atop the batting order, the back of the rotation has been inconsistent, there have been injuries already to Shane Victorino, Will Middlebrooks, Koji Uehara and Dustin Pedroia and the offense has been unable to produce when needed.

Red Sox Notebook: Warning frustrates Orioles

The Orioles were not happy they received a warning from the umpires about pitching inside after David Ross jawed at Bud Norris for throwing three pitches too close to Ross’ head in the seventh inning of yesterday’s 4-2 Red Sox victory.Considering Red Sox starter Felix Doubront hit Chris Davis in the sixth inning and received no warning, Baltimore could not understand why they had to pay a price for only coming close.“We hadn’t hit anybody yet — to give out warnings is kind of unfair,” said Norris.

Red Sox rally around David Ross, beat Orioles

As baseball dust-ups go, yesterday’s 90 seconds of David Ross jawing at Baltimore Orioles pitcher Bud Norris and both teams emptying, then quickly retreating to, their benches in the seventh inning was hardly Jason Varitek vs. Alex Rodriguez from 2004.But considering it immediately preceded the game-winning RBI triple from Brock Holt in a 4-2 victory yesterday at Fenway Park, a Red Sox team that has had issues getting on any kind of a meaningful roll might have been looking for any excuse to find a spark.
