Bard on bunt: 'Didn't see it coming at all'

CLEVELAND -- Daniel Bard admitted that Asdrubal Cabrera's squeeze bunt with one out in the eighth inning, which scored Adam Everett with the eventual game-winning run in the Indians' 1-0 win over the Red Sox, took him completely by surprise.

"I didn't see it coming at all," the reliever said. Later Bard added, "He didn’t square about the first three pitches. I don’t know why he would there."

Red Sox manager Terry Francona, on the other hand, said he wasn't totally take off guard by the Indians' strategy.

“No," he said when asked if the move was a surprise. "If we elect to pitch out and we don’t get the exact pitch, now we’ve got first and third and we’re in worse shape. No, you’ve got to figure at some point they might try it.”

Bard, who threw a 97 mph on the outside edge to Cabrera on the pitch in question, lamented walking the Indians' No. 9 hitter,...

Pedroia on frustration: 'This is our lives'

CLEVELAND -- The tone in the Red Sox' clubhouse was clearly one of frustration following a 1-0 loss to the Indians Thursday afternoon at Progressive Field. The defeat moved the Sox to 0-6, the franchise's worst start since 1945, when the Sox began the season 0-8.

"I’m frustrated. We all went to bed at 3 o’clock. We don’t just put our head on the pillow at 11:30 and go to sleep and say everything’s great. We’ve got 15 All-Stars or whatever the hell we’ve got on this team. That’s not how it is, man," Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia said. "This is our lives. We’re going to get home right now and my wife’s going to look at me and say, '[Expletive], you’re 0-6. You guys stink.' We all bring this [expletive] home with us, man. We care. We’ll figure it out. We have to. We don’t want to let anyone down. That’s it."

Despite returning home without a win,...

D-Mac: 'Trying to make something happen'

CLEVELAND -- Darnell McDonald explained after the Red Sox' 1-0 loss to the Indians Thursday afternoon that his intention in rounding second on the final play of the game was to try to be "aggressive" with the Sox trailing by a run in the ninth inning.

McDonald made the final out when he overran second base on J.D. Drew's grounder, which deflected off Indians reliever Chris Perez enough that Drew would have been safe. Third baseman Adam Everett scooped up the grounder, throwing it to second baseman Orlando Cabrera fast enough to catch the Sox' pinch-runner as he attempted to dive back into second. 

"I'm trying to be aggressive. I'm trying to make them make the throw, lost my footing out there and just got caught in no-man's land. I was just trying to be aggressive and make them make the throw to first base," McDonald explained.

"It might have been wet. I'm not even sure. I lost my footing, tried to get back,...

Red Sox swept, head home without a win

CLEVELAND -- For the first time since 1945, the Sox find themselves sitting at 0-6 to start the season after dropping a 1-0 decision to the Indians on Thursday afternoon at Progressive Field.

The decisive play this time around came in the eighth inning with reliever Daniel Bard on the mound for the Red Sox. With one out and Adam Everett at third, Asdrubal Cabrera executed a perfect squeeze bunt, getting home the game’s only run. Cleveland closer Chris Perez proceeded to pitch a scoreless ninth to close the deal for the Tribe.

The game ended when Darnell McDonald overran second base on J.D. Drew’s infield hit, getting tagged for the final out.

Jon Lester stood out for the Red Sox, not giving up a run while striking out nine in seven innings of work in his second start of the season.

Kevin Youkilis saw his batting average drop to .105 after going 0-for-4. Marco Scutaro raised his average to .176 with his first multi-hit game...

Schilling on D&C: Sox 'playing like crap'

Former Sox ace and ESPN contributor Curt Schilling checked in with Dennis & Callahan on Thursday morning. The first topic was the slow start for the Sox, who dropped to 0-5 after an 8-4 loss to the Indians on Wednesday night. 

"They are playing like crap," said Schilling. "Remember, we played at a .500 stretch for about 60 games in 2004. ... I think it's going to happen rather soon, there's going to be a point this team is going to find a villain. … I still believe they are going to be a good team, but they don't have a common foe, and pretty soon it's going to be getting booed on Opening Day, or the media just basically saying these guys suck, and they're going to have a 'let's circle the wagons to spite these guys' and  they don't have that."

The starting pitching has been abysmal through five games, with each starter being tagged for a loss and all with an ERA over 5.00. The struggles  of the...
