– Rick Porcello suffered his 15th loss despite allowing three runs (two earned) over seven innings. However, Owens hit a wall in the third inning of last night’s game, as the Cleveland Indians were the hosts at Progressive Field with aspirations for the playoffs or, at least, to ride recent success into next year.
“I told our guys today that one, I really appreciate that group in there”, Francona said.
Boston’s interim manager Torey Lovullo said.
The strikeouts slowed dramatically from that point, but only because the Red Sox were increasingly desperate and aggressive against Kluber, replacing their late swings and misses with early weak contact. “It just keeps getting better every game”.
Lovullo said Thursday he would leave it up to Ortiz if he wanted to play in the final series of the season. However, this still isn’t a flawless scenario, and there’s bound to be a few level of awkwardness between Farrell and Lovullo next season. “He wants to play to win a game”.
Because of his success with the Red Sox while Farrell was gone, Lovullo was expected to be a leading candidate for any managerial openings this winter. Boston Red Sox catcher Blake Swihart waits for the ball. Rookie left-hander Henry Owens (4-4) started for Boston, and was roughed up by the Indians for seven runs on 10 hits and four walks in 4 1/3 innings.
Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell announces he’s been diagnosed with stage 1 lymphoma. 500 for the second straight season. On a fairly quiet day, the offense was led by two players who’ll have plenty of questions swirling around them this offseason, in terms of their role on the team in 2016: Lonnie Chisenhall and Giovanny Urshela. But we don’t know exactly what’s going to happen from a health standpoint. I have a love for the organization.
Even though the Indians wake up this morning officially eliminated from any chance of a wild card spot this season, they battled hard.
3 runs, 4 hits, 0 errors, 2 left on. “I’ve seen him do that against me”. “One of them was off me before that one, so this is the second time”. “My expertise now is supposedly going to be outfield and coaching first base, and I need to be good at that”, said Beyeler during a January 2013 interview at McCoy Stadium. He has reached base safely in 29 straight games. Farrell completed his chemotherapy last week, and he’s due for a checkup three weeks from now. The results haven’t been as positive since, but a regime change headed by new President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski, Farrell’s inspiring recovery and the club’s performance under Lovullo provide reason to believe Boston will turn it around this next season.
