Even when the Red Sox lose, their bullpen shines.
Xander Bogaerts ends a Red Sox threat by getting hung up between second and third after a Jonathan Herrera strikeout, and admits, 'That was a tough one to take.'
Clay Buchholz says the reason he lasted only 2 1/3 innings in his team's 7-6 loss to the Orioles on Patriots Day -- his shortest outing ever at home -- is because he's still building up his arm strength.
The Red Sox have been outscored 43-25 through the first four innings this year, which means they've been playing catchup most of the time. Sometimes it works. And sometimes it doesn't.
