CSNNE Red Sox Insider Sean McAdam checked in on Thursday's Downtown with Rich Kimball and told Rich the schedule leading into the All Star Break gives the team a real opportunity to make up some ground in the race for post-season berth
Clay Buchholz returned from the DL and pitched 7 1/3 innings to help the Red Sox get a 5-4 win in Seattle. David Ortiz got the Sox off to a good start with a two run homer in the first. Daniel Nava had three hits, Brock Holt had a couple of hits and Koji got the save. The Sox get out Seattle with one win.
The John Lackey vs Felix Hernandez pitching matchup never materialized in Seattle Monday night. Instead, gave up a season high seven runs and could not make it out of the fourth inning. The Mariners pounded the Red Sox 12-3.
With less than two weeks to go in the voting, it looks like no Red Sox player will be picked as a starter for the July 15th MLB All Star Game in Minnesota. Both Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz are about 800,000 votes behind.
Somehow this win should have been easier. David Ortiz belted a 10th inning home run and the Red Sox eeked out a 7-6 win in Oakland. It happened after Jon Lester was solid for 7 2/3 innings. But Burke Badenhop coughed up runs and Koji Uehara blew a save.
