It was hardly the stuff of storybook debuts, but Rusney Castillo is 'satisfied' after gets a base hit in his first game for the Red Sox.
Clay Buchholz is racked for five runs in the first three innings and Steven Wright is tagged for four more as the Sox are drubbed by the Pittsburgh Pirates, 9-1.
As Rusney Castillo makes his major league debut Wednesday night, the Red Sox try to manage expectations for a player of which they themselves have seen very little.
2yThe Red Sox bullpen had been a strong point for the team in the first half, but not so much lately after walk-off losses on the West Coast and late Yankees rallly Friday night in a 10-8 loss at Fenway.
2yIn a battle of the bullpens, the Yankees get the better of the Red Sox in a slugfest and win 10-8 at Fenway Park. Mark Texeira's triple is the key hit as the Bombers win the opener of a four-game series.
2yInfielder Pedro Ciriaco is called up by the Red Sox from Triple-A Pawtucket after second baseman Dustin Pedroia is place on the disabled list.
2yThe Red Sox open a four-game series with the Yankees at Fenway Park. The Yankees' Hiroki Kuroda faces Josh Beckett.
2yClay Buchholz and Carl Crawford both may be back in the lineup immediately after the All-Star break; Daniel Bard, meanwhile, has another wild outing at Pawtucket.
2yA clean-shaven, short-haired Darnell McDonaldl is back at Fenway. Only this time he's a member of the Yankees, who picked him up after the Red Sox let the outfielder go last week.
2yTony Massarotti says there is 'far more pressure on the Red Sox than the Yankees this weekend', since New York would still be 3 12 games ahead even if Boston swept the four games.
