Red Sox empty bullpen, use 7 pitchers to shut out Orioles

Together with the Boston Red Sox and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, the Red Cross is proud to honor lucky presenting donors through the Blood Donor of the Game program.


Showalter has advocated for teams to submit a list of 25 eligible players before every series, so teams could submit three or four starters and get the benefit of extra relievers.

The Red Sox are on their way to a second consecutive last-place finish after winning the 2013 World Series. That was his team’s only hit until Dariel Alvarez opened the ninth with an infield single.

Bres, of course, is 35-year-old Craig Breslow, whose first career start after 522 relief appearances resulted in four solid frames.

That made him the oldest Red Sox pitcher at the time of his first start, edging Scott Atchison, whose debut start with Boston came at the age of 34 years and 75 days in 2010. Red Sox 1, Orioles 0.

(AP) – The Baltimore Orioles are going to need a lot of help to reach the playoffs for the third time in four years, especially if they keep failing to help themselves.

“Mike’s leadership, work ethic and passion for the game are second to none”, said Sam Kennedy, who is scheduled to take over as Red Sox president after the season, replacing the retiring Larry Lucchino.

Ranking 12th, Baltimore is in the top half of the league in hits, notching 8.51 per game. The Orioles have been held to seven hits in being shut out through the first two games of this set. Rusney Castillo was 2 for 4 and scored two runs. “I was in situations where I was in pretty good counts and just didn’t make a pitch I needed to make”.

The Baltimore Orioles are finishing out the string with less then two weeks remaining in the season. Machado is not swinging the bat particularly well, either, hitting.207 in his last eight games.

Orioles: CF Adam Jones was out of the starting lineup for the fourth straight game because of back spasms.

1 run, 0 hits, 0 errors, 0 left on. His only truly good season was an 11-8 year with the Cubs in 2007 (3.92 ERA in 195 innings).

The left-hander likely will get one more start this season, but he’s now above.500 at 4-3.

Boston has had Jimenez’s number historically. Meanwhile they have a manager in John Farrell who is fighting cancer and an interim manager in Torey Lovullo who may have inadvertently managed himself out of Boston. The game ended in dramatic fashion when Mookie Betts jumped the bullpen wall and snagged back a homer for the final out of the game.
