Aceves, Red Sox fall to Orioles in extras

Jim Thome's ground-rule double in the 12th inning against Alfredo Aceves scored Adam Jones to help hand the Orioles a 9-6 win over the Red Sox Saturday at Fenway Park. Endy Chavez and Manny Machado followed Thome with run-scoring hits to complete the scoring in Baltimore's three-run 12th.

The victory improved Baltimore to 16-2 in extra-inning games (16 in a row). The Red Sox, conversely, are now 0-7 at home in extra-inning contests (2-8 overall).

It marked the 11th straight time the Red Sox have lost when Aceves has pitched. This outing was the third consecutive outing in which the reliever has allowed two or more runs.

The Red Sox had managed to fight back from a three-run deficit with two runs in the seventh inning and one in the eighth. Getting things going in the seventh, after Adam Jones' solo homer had boosted Baltimore's lead to 6-3, was Cody Ross' fielder's choice, bases-loaded ground out to second. The play, which scored Scott...

Matsuzaka to start Red Sox season finale

Prior to his team's game Saturday afternoon against the Orioles, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said that Daisuke Matsuzaka will make another start this season, with the righty slated to go against the Yankees in the regular season finale at Yankee Stadium, Oct. 3.

"He's slotted in for the last game of the season," Valentine said. "Unless there's someone else that we choose to use." 

There was some question if Matsuzaka would make another start after his recent struggles. In his last four starts, Matsuzaka has totaled a 1-3 mark with a 13.50 ERA, having pitched a total of just 13 1/3 innings. Opponents are hitting .400 against Matsuzaka over that stretch. He is coming off a three-inning outing in which the righty gave up five runs on nine hits.

Valentine also said recently-recalled Zach Stewart will make the start Sept. 30 against the Orioles in Baltimore. With Triple-A Pawtucket, Stewart finished with a 3.94 ERA in...

Cherington: 'Good step forward' for minors

Red Sox GM Ben Cherington, in an interview for the Minor Details podcast, suggested that while 2012 had been a difficult year at the major league level, the outlook had been far more promising in the minor leagues. He identified considerable steps forward by a number of prospects, the addition of more talent through the draft and international amateur free agency and the blockbuster trade with the Dodgers that brought right-hander Allen Webster, infielder Ivan DeJesus and two players to be named (right-hander Rubby De La Rosa and outfielder Jerry Sands) in explaining why the farm system appears to be in strong condition. 

"We've taken a good step forward, " Cherington said. "There have been three things that have happened this year. No. 1: We've seen a big step forward by a number of players. You...

Wieters leads Orioles past Red Sox
By: DJ Bean

The Red Sox opened their last homestand of the season with a 4-2 loss to the Orioles Friday night. The loss was the Sox' third straight and it dropped their record to 68-84 on the season. 

Taking the loss for Boston was Jon Lester. The lefty threw seven innings for the Sox, allowing four earned runs on eight hits on 112 pitches. He had three strikeouts and walked three batters in addition to throwing a wild pitch. The loss (the first of his career vs. the Orioles) dropped Lester's record on the season to 9-13. 

Three of Baltimore's runs were driven in by catcher Matt Wieters. The Orioles got to Lester for two runs in both the fourth and sixth innings. 

The Red Sox initially took a 1-0 lead in the third inning on a Pedro Ciriaco double before Wieters' two-run double in the fourth. Boston's other run came from Dustin Pedroia, who snapped an 0-for-18 streak by singling in Ciriaco in the bottom of the fifth.
