(5/7/13) Red Sox starter Ryan Dempster completed seven innings on Tuesday at home against the Twins. Unfortunately, Scott Diamond was much sharper and blanked Boston over a stellar effort.
Dempster threw 110 pitches as he allowed four runs -- two earned -- on five hits and a walk with eight strikeouts. His one walk was a season low. The loss dropped him under .500 at 2-3.
Dempster, who has a 2.93 ERA, had won his previous two outings and now has 55 Ks over 43 innings, as he's in the top five in the American League in Ks. Dempster will look to get back on the winning track when he next takes the ball Sunday against Toronto.
|Ryan Dempster worth it in Week 6|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/4/13) With two starts on the way, Red Sox starting pitcher Ryan Dempster has been bumped into the top 25 in Al Melchior's Week 6 (May 6-12) Pitching Forecaster.
Dempster is set to take on the Twins and Blue Jays this week coming off his fifth quality start in six outings Thursday. He limited the Blue Jays to one earned run in six innings in his last outing against them. Dempster is already being started in 71 percent of CBSSports.com Fantasy leagues, and there is little reason for him not to be started in all leagues this week.
Toronto ranks 26th in the league in runs scored per game (3.53), while the Twins also have a below-average offense through their first 25 games of the season.
|Ryan Dempster stays sharp|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/2/13) Red Sox starter Ryan Dempster enjoyed another stellar performance as he picked up a win during Thursday's contest against the Blue Jays.
Dempster, who made his sixth start of the season, gave up a solo home run to Brett Lawrie in the opening frame for his only damage of the night. He was charged wih one run and four hits in six innings of work. He struck out four and walked three on 100 pitches, 60 for strikes.
Dempster did not pick up his first strikeout until the fourth inning. He fell three strikeouts short of setting a franchise mark. Instead, he joined Pedro Martinez as the only two pitchers in Red Sox history to record seven strikeouts or more in their first five starts.
Dempster has allowed just three runs and struck out 14 in his last 12 innings of work. He is scheduled to start Tuesday at home against Minnesota. The right-hander went 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA in two starts against the Twins last season.

|Ryan Dempster was well on his way to a career year in 2012 with the Cubs -- 2.25 ERA and 1.04 WHIP through 16 starts -- before being sent to the Rangers in a deadline deal. Dempster went on to post an ugly 5.09 ERA with his new team, but did strike out a batter per inning. Although it's easy to point to the league change as a reason for Dempster's rise in numbers -- and that is significant after his signing with the Red Sox -- it should be noted that he went on the DL in mid-June with a lat strain and produced just a 4.50 ERA from that point forward. So it could have been a result of him still being bothered by the injury. Dempster will be 36 this season, and while he hasn't been the most consistent pitcher over his career, he has put together five nice seasons in a row, with a 3.74 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in that span. A move to Fenway for any other pitcher may be scary, but Dempster's last two stops (Texas and Chicago) were in hitter-friendly parks, as well. Dempster's not quite top-level, but he has been good enough as of late to be taken in the later rounds of most drafts. (Updated 1/2/13)|
