Red Sox 2, White Sox 3: This is getting old

Photo By Winslow Townson/ Another day, another loss. It was the same story, just a different day — almost nothing went right for the Red Sox on Mother’s Day. Michael Wacha, who’s been the Sox’s best pitcher so far this season, was scratched and placed on the 15-day IL with left side soreness an hour and a half before first pitch. That was unexpected, but the routine annoyances appeared too. The Red Sox played sloppy defense at times and came up aggravatingly short with runners in scoring position during an unsurprising and uninspiring 3-2 loss to the White Sox....

Let’s get a win! First of all, happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there in the OTM community. Y’all are the best! Not the best? The Boston Red Sox. They are reeling, and their best starter to date, Michael Wacha, was scratched from this game with Tanner Houck now getting the start. The good news is Chicago is starting Dallas Keuchel, who has had a brutal season thus far. First pitch is set for 11:35 AM ET. Last Night Loss; 1-3 How to Watch There’s no NESN broadcast for this one. Instead, the game will be streamed on Peacock and will also be aired on NBC, so don’t...

Everything is going poorly for the Red Sox right now, both on the field and in terms of injury. Prior to Saturday’s brutal loss to Chicago, we learned that both Chris Sale and James Paxton had suffered setbacks in their road back to the rotation. Now, we get bad news about Michael Wacha. We already knew he was scratched from today’s start, but the hope was that he’d be able to return next weekend to pitch in Texas. That’s...

White Sox at Red Sox Lineups: Wacha is out, Houck is in

Photo by Mitchell Layton/ Left side soreness keeps Wacha off the mound for this one. It’s another day ending in Y, so that means the Red Sox are trying to rebound after a lackluster offensive performance from the night prior. Last night, they scored just one run in 10 innings en route to a 3-1 loss that drove them into sole possession of last place. The Red Sox will try to stave off extending a losing streak that is already tied for their longest of the season and avoid a sweep at the hands of the White Sox today.

Come hang out for tonight’s game! The Red Sox got a much-needed victory over a talented Angels team on Tuesday night, with Michael Wacha leading the way in a shutout performance from the pitching staff. They also got a couple of home runs, though we’re still waiting for the true breakout from the offense. Perhaps it will come tonight against the talented but inexperienced Reid Detmers! He’ll take on Garrett Whitlock, with first pitch set for 7:10 PM ET (weather dependent). Last Night Win; 4-0 How to Watch You can watch locally on cable on NESN. MLB Network also has the...

After the Red Sox silenced the offense of the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday, they’ll look to do it again with Garrett Whitlock taking the hill for a 7:10 p.m. EST start time at Fenway Park.
