Boston Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox took on the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night at Busch Stadium and were handed their third loss in a row, this time falling 10-6. Boston's offense was solid on the night, scoring six runs on 12 hits and four walks while striking out just four times. Connor Wong had a great night, going 4-for-5 with an RBI, and Rafael Devers went 1-for-5 with a home run, his third in as many games, and two RBIs. RBIs also came from Jarren Duran (1-for-3 with two walks) and David Hamilton (2-for-4 with a triple).

The Boston Red Sox have offered MLB's most productive starting rotation all season long. The Cardinals inflicted that against Boston starter Brayan Bello, tabbing him with three homers allowed in a 10-6 loss for the Red Sox. Bello failed to get through five innings in his second start since returning from the injured list. Most of Bello's troubles on Friday came from missed spots with his sinker and the inability to miss bats with his changeup, the combination he consistently relies on dating back to the start of his career with the Red Sox.

Statistically, the matchup didn't bode well for the Cardinals. After all, the Boston Red Sox brought the stingiest pitching staff in the major leagues to town to face the National League's least-productive offense.

Niko Kavadas has gotten off to a great start at Triple-A Worcester. (Katie Morrison-O'Day / MassLive) By Chris Cotillo | ST. LOUIS — The Red Sox scrambled to replace Triston Casas' production at first base by adding not one, but two, veteran first basemen to replace him after Casas tore cartilage in his ribcage and was placed on the 60-day injured list. So far, the loss has proven to be a massive one in terms of production. The two veterans, Garrett Cooper and Dominic Smith, entered Friday's game combining to hit .192 since joining the Red Sox. Cooper, who came over in a minor trade with the Cubs, is 7-for-34 (.206) with three doubles, three RBIs and 10 strikeouts . Smith,

Tommy Pham warned 'em. The White Sox were enjoying a welcome 11-8 run going into their six-game road trip that kicked off Friday against the Yankees. “We've got a tough schedule coming up, so it's going to take a lot of good baseball played by us to beat some of these teams,” Pham said, reminding his teammates the Sox are facing series against the Yankees, Blue Jays, Orioles, Brewers, Cubs and Red Sox in the next three-plus weeks. Playing bad baseball — Pham's three hits including a double in a 4-2 loss notwithstanding — against the 31-15 Yankees was no way to say hello to the AL East.

Many things come to mind for Red Sox outfielder Tyler O'Neill when he reflects on six seasons spent with the St. Louis Cardinals. There are the on-field moments like in 2021 when the Cardinals won a franchise-record 17 consecutive games that clinched a National League Wild Card spot.

For better or worse, the wins above replacement statistic (more commonly referred to as WAR) has changed the way we view MLB players forever. WAR attempts to boil down a player's contributions to a single number, determining how many more wins that player is worth to their team than a replacement-level player. WAR can be difficult to use in debates like MVP voting and Hall of Fame selections because not only are there two different methods of calculating it – fWAR and bWAR, for FanGraphs and Baseball Reference -, but it can ignore context as to why some players score higher than others.

In Wednesday's rehab start, Whitlock allowed just two hits, walked one, and struck out five. The Sox planned to reinstate Whitlock from the injured list during this road trip, likely pitching him against the Rays next week and thus giving Tanner Houck an extra day of rest. This is not the first time Whitlock has experienced elbow issues. “It's more about the last few years than anything else,” said Cora, asked how deflating it is to lose Whitlock again so close to his return.

BOSTON — After Tuesday’s extra-inning, walkoff and — as manager Kevin Cash said — irritating loss to the Red Sox, the Rays were looking to feel better about things on Wednesday. And they did, with a team effort in a 4-3 win over the Red Sox that gave them a lot to smile about afterward: Starter Taj Bradley, who worked five solid innings, insisting his reflexive catch of a line drive showed he ...
