Raise is confused and faces the Red Sox pitching staff

Article author:



Boston Red Socks turns to a consistent man on the mound of Nick Pivetta, who continues his three-game series with Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night.

Boston's pitching plan looks different because Michael Wacha was scratched by what manager Alex Cola described as a "dead arm" from the beginning of Monday. Austin Davis cast two innings on behalf of Wacha, after which Kutter Crawford took over 51/3 and finally won the 4-0 Red Sox.

"I don't think it's structural (using Wacha). It's like a dead arm and hit a wall," Cola added. "So hopefully you can push him back later in the week and go from there."

Pivetta (8-5, 3.23 ERA) on Tuesday I plan to pitch. Lighty was 8-1, ERA was 1.95 on the last 11 starts, and he threw at least 5 innings on every outing during that stretch.

Before Pibetta, who started his first four careers against Raise last year, the latest red socks pitcher for Sub 2.00 ERA with eight wins and 11 start spans in 2013 was Kleibuchholtz.

The starter for Wednesday has not yet been determined after Rich Hill was put on the list of injured due to a left knee twist. Hill joins Nathan Eobaldi and Garrett Whitlock as Boston starters.

"Many people are in attendance right now," said Cola, who left the possibility for Triple A prospect Brian Bello to call the majors. "Suddenly a lot of health is happening. We've talked about all of them throughout the season."

Shortstop Xander Bogaerts said the day before. He played on Monday after being spiked by the Cubs Willson Contreras in a stolen base attempt with a 4-2 and 11 inning victory. Bogaerts, now routinely listed, left a left thigh laceration requiring 7 needles.

"There was a small hole there," Bogarts said. "So I had to get it right. I can't say it hurt. It didn't look good and I had to deal with it reliably."

Raise was fourth in the majors. Participating in the series with a good ERA, Jeffrey Springs (3-2, 2.25) expected to return to rotation after missing the scheduled start for a family medical emergency last Thursday.

Springs will start on Tuesday after former Boston draft topic Jalen Beeks was called late for the series opener.

"Everything is fine," said Raise manager Kevin Cash earlier this week. "I don't want to get over it."

The last nine of the ten springs starts this season were in a row. The third left-handed six-inning outing in that span took place on June 24, when he defeated nine of the season's best nine pirates.

"Pitching has kept us in many games and has been a big part of what we've done in the last few years," said Center Fielder Kevin Kilmeier recently. Told. "We need to win some runs for them."

Before arriving in Boston, the Rays attack was 24 with three wins against Toronto on Saturday and Sunday. I recorded a run. They were locked out on Monday with only two hits.

Tuesday marks the first Springs career start for Boston.

Right-handed Matt Wisler threw his first inning on behalf of Springs at the last time-out. The last five starts of Springs all resulted in a raise victory. From Triple-A Durham, Ryan Yarbrough threw the next 5 1/3 inning.

Raise made a number of roster moves on Monday, including recalling Josh Fleming from Durham and resurrecting fellow pitchers Brooks Rayleigh and Ryan Thompson from the restricted list.
