Pedroia on RISP: 'That [expletive] will change'

The Red Sox have lost five of their last six games, and went 3-6 on their most recent homestand, finishing with a 5-3 loss to the Rays Wednesday night.

You don’t have to search far for a common theme. No, it’s not just the starting pitching, it’s in the inability to get a clutch hit. The Red Sox were 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position Wednesday, and overall they are 4-for-45 (.080) in their last six games.

“Yeah, well it’s [30 games] over 162, that [expletive] will change,” Dustin Pedroia said.

The Red Sox had plenty of chances Wednesday.

First, in the eighth inning after Mookie Betts crushed a solo homer to lead the inning off cutting the deficit to 4-3, the Red Sox then loaded the bases with one out against Rays reliever Kevin Jepsen....

Late rally not enough, Sox fall to Rays

Justin Masterson didn’t have good numbers against the Rays before the game, and they certainly didn’t get better after the game.

After entering the night 2-7 with a 6.83 ERA against them, Masterson struggled with his control, walking six batters in just 4 1/3 innings, while allowing four runs in the Red Sox‘ 5-3 loss to the Rays Wednesday night. The Rays took 2-of-3 in the three-game series.

The Rays scored single runs in the third and fourth before scoring twice in the fifth leading to his departure. Masterson did allow a solo home run to Evan Longoria in the fourth inning.

The right-hander finished the night going 4 1/3 innings, allowing four runs on seven hits with the six walks and...

Victorino (hamstring) could rejoin team Monday

Out with a hamstring injury since April 22, right fielder Shane Victorino might almost be ready to return to the Red Sox lineup.

The plan for Victorino is still to get his rehabbing done in Portland on Friday and Saturday, but what happens after that isn’t so clear. If all goes well for Victorino, manager John Farrell said he could meet up with the team when it heads west for a left-coast road swing.

“He’s going to get Friday and Saturday (in Portland) at minimum and if everything goes accordingly, there’s a chance he could, or the plan would be for him to join us in Oakland,” Farrell...

Hanley (shoulder) showing improvement

The news continues to improve for left fielder Hanley Ramirez.

After spraining his shoulder Monday against the Rays when he ran into the left field wall down the line and missing Tuesday’s game, Ramirez remains day-to-day, but he’s showing signs of improvement.

There’s still no timetable for a return.

“He continues to improve with range of motion,” manager John Farrell said. “Tomorrow (Thursday) is not an unrealistic possibly to begin to swing a bat with some dry swings. We’re not clear yet on when a potential return to full baseball activity level of a game just yet. Improvement, but still day-to-day.”

Farrell added Ramirez will travel with the team to Toronto after the game before the team goes to the West Coast next week.
