The left-hander struck out five on the afternoon while walking two.

Drew Pomeranz gave up three runs over six innings in Monday’s 6-5 victory over the Blue Jays.

Pomeranz was actually behind through six innings before the Red Sox pulled away for good in the top of the seventh. Things could have been worse for the southpaw, as he gave up seven hits while walking five batters. He’s now 14-4 with a 3.23 ERA through 26 starts and hasn’t lost dating all the way back to June 11. Pomeranz will square off against the Yankees this weekend in the Bronx.
Aug 29 - 12:23 AM

Drew Pomeranz blanked the Indians for 5 1/3 innings and struck out nine in taking a victory on Wednesday.

Pomeranz, who left his last start with back spasms, allowed just a pair of singles in this one, though he did walk four. Indians hitters managed a total of four hits against the Red Sox the last two nights, and they didn't even face Chris Sale (they'll do that tomorrow). Pomeranz is now 13-4 with a 3.18 ERA.

Aug 20 - 11:25 AM

Drew Pomeranz (back) said Saturday that while he's sore, he fully expects to make his next start.

Pomeranz was lifted from his start on Friday after just 3 1/3 innings due to back spasms. It appears to be just a minor issue though, so look for him to get the ball on Wednesday against the Indians in Cleveland.
Aug 19 - 4:02 PM

Drew Pomeranz left Friday's start against the Yankees due to back spasms.

Drew Pomeranz was forced to leave Friday's start against the Yankees in the fourth inning due to an apparent injury.

It's unclear exactly what occurred, but it appeared to be some sort of leg issue that forced Pomeranz from the game. Prior to departing, he had scattered four hits and struck out four over 3 1/3 scoreless innings. Look for the Red Sox to provide an update on his status shortly.
Aug 18 - 8:23 PM

Drew Pomeranz scattered seven hits and three runs over 7 2/3 innings Saturday in the Red Sox’s win over the Yankees.

He walked two and struck out five while throwing 76 of his 111 pitches for strikes. Pomeranz got off to a sluggish start by serving up a two-run jack to Gary Sanchez in the first inning. He settled down after that, not allowing another run until the fourth. Pomeranz has come up huge this year, providing a stellar 3.39 ERA over 23 starts. The left-hander is now tied with Minnesota’s Ervin Santana for third in the AL with 12 victories. Pomeranz will toe the rubber again Friday night at Fenway against the same Yankees he just beat.
Aug 12 - 8:19 PM

Drew Pomeranz allowed just one run and struck out eight batters over 6 1/3 innings to earn a 4-1 win over the White Sox on Saturday.

Aug 5 - 10:34 PM

Drew Pomeranz pitched 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball Sunday in a no-decision versus the Royals.

Boston had a 3-1 lead when Pomeranz exited in the top of the seventh, but the pesky Royals mounted another late charge to grab a 5-3 comeback victory at Fenway Park. Pomeranz scattered seven hits and one walk while striking out four. He has a cool 3.46 ERA and 119 strikeouts in 114 1/3 innings this year, with a home start against the rebuilding White Sox showing next on his schedule.
Jul 30 - 6:29 PM

Drew Pomeranz allowed three earned runs, four hits and four walks with seven strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision against the Mariners on Tuesday.

Pomeranz labored through five innings, throwing 105 times with a wild pitch. The subpar outing snapped a string of four straight starts lasting six or more innings. His next scheduled outing is set for Monday against the Indians, his original organization. He is 6-2 with a 3.93 ERA over 52 2/3 innings across 10 starts at Fenway Park this season with the opposition hitting just .240.
Jul 26 - 5:01 AM

Drew Pomeranz earned his 10th win by limiting the Blue Jays to an unearned run over 6 2/3 innings on Wednesday.

Pomeranz worked around five walks in the game. He allowed just three hits, all of them singles. Incredibly, Pommeranz has allowed two runs or fewer in 15 of his 19 starts. None of those starts have lasted longer than seven innings and many fell short of six, so he's not as valuable as that stat makes him sound. Still, he's given the Red Sox a chance to win pretty much every time out.
