News
Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello had a game to forget Sunday in Boston's 8-3 loss to the Orioles. Porcello allowed eight runs on 12 hits, including two home runs, in five innings of work to pick up his second loss of the season.

"I just didn't execute pitches. I made a lot of mistakes and they hit pretty much every one of them," Porcello said to MLB.com. "I left a lot of fastballs over the plate.

Porcello struggled from the start, allowing a two-run home run to Adam Jones in the first inning. Then he allowed a solo shot to Ryan Flaherty in the second before settling in.

"I thought early on, a 1-0 sinker or a 0-1 sinker that didn’t have the finish to [Adam] Jones for the two-run dinger," manger John Farrell said to WEEI.com. "There ended up being some pitches left up in the strike zone. He had to fight back in the count at times. Left-handers took some good swings against him."

But things unraveled in the fifth when Porcello allowed three of the first four hitters to reach base safely before Travis Snider singled home a run with the bases loaded. Then Manny Machado dropped a sacrifice fly to extend Baltimore's lead.

Porcello, now 1-2, boasts a 6.63 ERA and will look to get back on track Friday against the Orioles again.

News
Though early-season statistics can be skewed, those registered by Red Sox young shortstop Xander Bogaerts in 2015 compared to the numbers he recorded last year jump off the page. And there are several reasons for it.

Bogaerts sweetened his stat line to .395/.452/.474 with a 2-for-4 performance Friday night, which included a game-winning single that made him the youngest Boston player to slam a walk-off hit since Jim Rice in 1975. Not bad considering he batted just .240 with a .297 on-base percentage a in 2014.

Among the reasons for his surge has been opposite-field hitting. He has hit more line drives and fly balls to right and with greater success, MLB.com is reporting. He hit .218 on balls hit to right a year ago, but is 6-for-13 going that way this season.

But perhaps the most significant improvement has been in regard to patience and discipline. John Farrell has certainly noticed.

"He's just been a little more relaxed at the plate, letting the ball travel a little bit deeper in the strike zone," Farrell said. "It's allowed him to use the whole field a little bit more, which is more the norm of what he's always been as a hitter. He's in a confident place right now."

Orioles pitcher Wei-Yin Chen has surrendered a .323 batting average to current Red Sox hitters, masnsports.com reports.

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has collected more hits against Chen than anyone in the lefty pitcher's career, going 14 for 27 with a .519/.567/.778 line. Designated hitter David Ortiz is 8 for 21 with a home run, right fielder Shane Victorino is 4 for 10 with a home run and shortstop Xander Bogaerts is 3 for 10 with a home run against Chen. All four are in the starting lineup Monday, as are first baseman Mike Napoli, who's just 3 for 17 against Chen but with two home runs, and catcher Ryan Hanigan, who's 1 for 9 with a home run against the pitcher.

The Orioles are underdogs (+110) against the Red Sox in Boston Monday.

Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval is not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles.

It's just the second time this season Sandoval has been out of the lineup. He has struggled against lefties this season, and with lefty Wei-Yin Chen on the mound, the team has decided to give him a break from starting. Brock Holt will draw his third straight start at a different position in place of Sandoval Monday.

The Red Sox are favorites (-115) against the Orioles Monday.

Mookie Betts' recent 0-for-7 slide isn't the reason Red Sox manager John Farrell didn't start him Saturday against the Orioles, reports WEEI.com.

With the O's starting right-hander Chris Tillman, who's considered tough with a heavy sinker, Farrell wants to get utility-man Brock Holt some at-bats. 

"A way to get Brock in the lineup," Farrell said. "He has swung the bat well in limited looks against Tillman and our goal, and my personal goal, is to get Brock [in the lineup] and keep him in the mix as much as possible."

Red Sox starting pitchers have a 6.24 ERA this season, worst in the Major Leagues. As a result, the bullpen has had to pitch 49 and two thirds inning this year, second-highest total in baseball. 

Craig Breslow has pitched nine and two thirds scoreless innings. Edward Mujica (2.70 ERA in six and two third innings) and Robbie Ross (1.42 in six and a third) have also performed well under a heavy early-season workload. 

A 19-inning game against the Yankees helped increase the innings total for the bullpen. 

"You monitor the workload of every individual guy," manager John Farrell said, per MLB.com. "Our goal is to continue to try to stretch our starters out as best as possible. To keep a bullpen that's successful, healthy and strong requires an equally strong rotation."

Masterson threw 53 strikes in 93 pitches and lowered his ERA to 5.74. 

"The slider was working real good," Masterson said, per WEEI. "That's what helped me in 2013 and helped me to be a better pitcher. The best way to do that is to throw it for strikes in good counts."

Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters that Daniel Nava batted right-handed against a left-hander to get a bunt down.

Nava revealed this offseason that he would stop switch-hitting and go exclusively from the left-handed side. Farrell reiterated that he is still working only as a lefty, per the Providence Journal.

Nava entered the Friday's game in the sixth inning for Shane Victorino. He flied out in the sixth off right-hander Kevin Gausan, and sacrificed to first in the bottom of the ninth against southpaw Brian Matusz.

Nava is hitting .313 (5 for 16) with a .389 on-base percentage and five RBI in eight games this season.

Brandon Workman is still two-to-three weeks away from starting a throwing program, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. 

Workman received a PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) injection earlier in the week, to help stimulate healing of his injured elbow ligament. 

"He’s still probably two or three weeks away from initiating any type of throwing program," Farrell said, per WEEI. "So he’ll remain here in Boston. There are some changes to the ligament. To what extent, or percentage of tear, I don’t have that. But that is why he received the injection he did."

Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz (1-2) gave up 11 hits in six innings but only yielded two runs Saturday, suffering the loss to the Orioles.

Buchholz notched seven strikeouts in the loss.

"I went through a rough outing my last time out," Buchholz said. "I was more thinking pitch to pitch, get a ground ball, not give in -- I wasn't going to give in to anybody, regardless of bases being loaded or not. They're going to have to hit a good pitch."

Manager John Farrell said he thought Buchholz pitched with "more conviction" Saturday, and the pitcher did not disagree.

"After the last outing, the last thing I wanted ‘em to do is let them hit the ball around," he said. "I definitely didn't feel like I gave up 11 hits. I won a couple of battles, but balls just ended up falling in. But it didn't affect me like it did in New York."

Buchholz looks to even up his record Thursday in Tampa Bay.

"Very cool," teammate Ryan Hanigan said, per MLB.com. "I congratulated him. He said something like, 'Yeah, that's me getting old.' I said, 'No that's you being the man.' That's an awesome thing. The guy's a Hall of Famer."

Red Sox utility player Brock Holt has started six times through the first 13 games, including five of the last six. Manager John Farrell has found a way to keep Holt in the lineup because he is swinging a hot bat, carrying a six-game hitting streak (12 for 23) into Monday's game vs. Baltimore.

"There's no denying he's earning playing time,'' Farrell said, per CSNNE.com. "Versatility aside, he's swinging the bat well, playing with good energy, running the bases well. We want to keep that involved as much as possible.''

It helps Holt's cause that he is a left-handed batter on a team dominated by right-handed hitters.

"Performance and versatility has looking at different ways to get him in the lineup,'' Farrell said.

Despite starting two of the first nine games of the season, Red Sox outfielder Allen Craig has remained positive about his playing time and said he's trying to adjust to a reserved role, reports MLB.com.

"It's definitely not easy," Craig said. "It presents its challenges. But I think that I definitely find success. So it's just about staying positive and competing."

With manager John Farrell relying on outfielders Daniel Nava and Brock Holt in a platoon role, Allen knows his role may not increase soon, but it's a long season.

"I don't really allow myself to go there and think about it too much, to be honest with you," Craig said. "I just try to compete and do the best I can do in every at-bat, whether that's coming off the bench or starting."
