Jackie Bradley Jr. delivered a two-run double off Leury Garcia in the top of the 14th to lead the Red Sox to a 6-4 win over the White Sox on Wednesday.
The floundering Red Sox caught quite a break when the White Sox ran out of pitchers, forcing them to turn to an infield. After two two-out walks from Garcia, Bradley delivered the big hit, just Boston's third after the first inning of the contest. He finished the game 1-for-6 with a walk.
Edward Mujica took a blown save after giving up a run in the 10th inning Wednesday against the White Sox.
Last year, Mujica took his first loss and blown save of the season on July 4. By that time, he had already pitched 34 1/3 innings. This year, he already has one of each. One wonders how much longer he'll be trusted as Koji Uehara's fallback.
Chris Capuano pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings for a relief victory Wednesday against the White Sox.
Capuano has been a revelation in relief for the Red Sox, throwing nine scoreless innings in the team's first 15 games. Given his injury history, we'll see if he can keep it up. He has to be in line for a couple of days off after the long outing tonight.
After leaving Wednesday's game in the seventh inning with a hand injury, Hanley Ramirez's X-rays came back negative.
Los Angeles collectively held its breath after Han-Ram was hit by a 90 mph Ryan Vogelsong fastball on the top of his left hand. The star shortstop spiked his helmet and jumped around in agony before exiting, with Justin Turner taking his spot. Consider Ramirez day-to-day.
John Danks pitched six innings of one-run ball versus the Red Sox on Wednesday.
Danks gave up hits to the first three batters he faced and then not another one for the rest of his outing. In fact, the Red Sox didn't have another hit until the ninth. Danks ended up with a no-decision despite leaving with a two-run lead. He's 3-for-3 in quality starts this season, but he has just one win to show for it.
Matt Lindstrom was charged with a remarkably cheap blown save after inheriting Maikel Cleto's mess in the ninth inning Wednesday against the Red Sox.
Cleto, who got the last out in the eighth, was going to get a chance to go for the save in the ninth, but he was pulled from a 3-2 game after walking the first two batters of the inning. Lindstrom came in and retired David Ortiz on a flyball before giving up a soft infield single and a game-tying sac fly. While he did no wrong, it was his third blown save of the young season. Lindstrom preserved the tie from there and pitched a scoreless 10th, so it was a good night for him and a setback for Cleto, who appeared set to get a chance to supplant Lindstrom in the closer's role.
Sergio Romo whiffed a pair while working a perfect ninth inning for his fourth save against the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Romo coughed up a run while earning a rocky save on Opening Day against the Diamondbacks. Since then, he's fired six shutout innings and allowed only one hit and one walk. Romo is missing bats and refusing to give away bases again, the recipe that helped him leap into the group of the game's elite closers last year. He owns a 1.29 ERA, 0.57 WHIP, and 9/1 K/BB rate over seven innings.
With the White Sox out of pitchers, Leury Garcia took a loss in the 14th inning Wednesday against the Red Sox.
Rather than extend Daniel Webb past three innings, the White Sox went to Garcia in a tie game. He actually got two quick outs, but he then walked two and gave up a two-run double to Jackie Bradley Jr.
