Red Sox Notes: Ron Roenicke Offers Update On Alex Verdugo

Alex Verdugo left Boston’s 6-5 loss in the bottom of the third inning with what the team called hamstring tightness. And even though this is a lost season for the Sox, it certainly didn’t make it any better to lose arguably its best player. But according to manager Ron Roenicke, Verdugo could have have remained […] The post Red Sox Notes: Ron Roenicke Offers Update On Alex Verdugo appeared first on NESN.com.

Red Sox 5, Marlins 3: A series win? On the road? In this economy?

Photo by Mark Brown/ It’s the first time they’ve won a series away from Fenway since July. For the first time since the end of July when they went to New York to take on the Mets, the Red Sox have won a series away from Fenway. This one started as a pitchers’ duel, with Nathan Eovaldi taking a no-hitter into the fifth and eventually leaving after five shutout frames and José Ureña keeping Boston off the board until the sixth. The Red Sox were able to build up a five-run lead thanks to another three-hit day for Alex Verdugo (his second in a row) and a big three-run shot for Rafael...

Red Sox 4, Marlins 8: There’s the 2020 Red Sox we know and [redacted]

Photo by Michael Reaves/ A long, drawn out loss. We’ve gotten used to it. This wasn’t the worst Red Sox loss of the season by a long shot. In fact, there was a fair amount to be stoked about! Alex Verdugo and Rafael Devers both had very good games. Yairo Muñoz continued to be extremely fun. J.D. Martinez hit a home run on which he looked more like J.D. Martinez than any other swing this year. And yet, this game was one of my least favorite to watch all year. I don’t even really have a reason to articulate. It was just a slog. Mike Kickham was bad, and not in a particularly...

(John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston) For his first career start, Tanner Houck did something pretty cool and gave us even more of a reason to root for strikeouts. (Logan Mullen; NESN) Kumar Rocker and Jack Leiter could potentially be following behind Mata and Houck as Red Sox pitching prospects.

Game 48 Gamethread: Red Sox at Rays

The Red Sox are looking to salvage a split down in Tampa Bay in their series finale against the Rays on Sunday. The good news is they have Martín Pérez on the mound, who has been their most consistent pitcher in 2020. The bad news is they have a bonafide Sunday Lineup heading out to face Charlie Morton, with both Alex Verdugo and Xander Bogaerts on the bench. Should be fun! First pitch is set for 1:10 PM ET.

Photo By: Ezra Shaw/ North America Not a great week so far! In the first game of this week’s three-game set against the Braves, Max Fried continued his dominant season and Colten Brewer continued getting rocked as the Braves took the victory. The bullpen behind Brewer was solid, allowing only one run over five innings, but by the time the bullpen got in the game the damage had been done as Brewer allowed five earned over four-plus innings. Alex Verdugo did his best to generate some offense, smacking three doubles in a losing effort. Tuesday’s game was another bullpen game that Ryan...
