Buchholz (3 HRs) crushed by Rockies

Say goodbye to Clay Buchholz?

Taking the mound with his spot in the starting rotation on the line, the Red Sox right-hander instead imploded against the Colorado Rockies on Thursday, done in by his nemesis — the long ball.

Buchholz allowed three two-run homers in five-plus innings. His final line, not surprisingly, was ugly: 5 IP, 7 hits, 6 runs, all earned. He walked none, struck out two, and saw his ERA climb to 6.35.

With Eduardo Rodriguez nearing a return, Buchholz is easily the odd man out of the rotation based on performance. His only hope was to pitch well and delay E-Rod’s return. Now, barring any physical setbacks for the young left-hander, there’s no point in saving the veteran’s spot.

Buchholz’s night actually started in encouraging fashion. He retired the first nine batters he faced before Charlie Blackmon led off the fourth with a single. And then things got hairy. With two outs, Carlos...

Bogaerts hit streak to 19; JBJ ends at 29

Jackie Bradley just missed a home run that would’ve extended his hitting streak to 30 games leading off the game and then did so again two at-bats later, halting his hitting streak at 29 games.

Xander Bogaerts, however, extended his hitting streak to 19 games with a sharp single to left field off of Colorado Rockies starter Jon Gray. He then came around to score on David Ortiz’s two-run homer into the bullpen.

While all eyes are on Bradley, who was attempting to become the first Red Sox hitter since Nomar Garciaparra in 1997 to record a hit in 30 straight games, Bogaerts has quietly compiled an impressive streak of his own.

His 19-gamer is the second-longest in the game behind Bradley. The hit raised Bogaerts’ AL-leading average to .353.

Bradley nearly extended his streak leading off the game in place of Mookie Betts, who got a night off. He ripped a Gray offering to deep right, but it fell just short of the fence...

NFL disciplines Ravens for minicamp violation

The NFL has come down against the Ravens.

Earlier this month, the Ravens held rookie minicamp practices in pads, which is against NFL rules. On Thursday, the NFL imposed the discipline against the organization and coach Jim Harbaugh.

As a team, they have to forfeit one week of their organized team activities, which had been scheduled June 1-3. In addition, the team was fined $343,057 and Harbaugh was fined $137,223, according to ESPN’s Jim Trotter.

Report: 3 NFL owners unhappy with Kraft

According to Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole, three NFL owners have expressed “extreme disappointment” in Robert Kraft and the Patriots after they filed an amicus brief on behalf of Tom Brady and the NFLPA in the quarterback’s appeal of the Second Circuit pertaining to his four-game Deflategate suspension.

Cole says the owners view the move by the Patriots and Kraft as a publicity stunt to get more fans back on their side. He adds the owners don’t believe Kraft was serious with the filing as it goes against commissioner Roger Goodell’s ability to punish players and undermines the...

If Buchholz struggles, E-Rod says he's ready

As we noted today, Clay Buchholz faces a do-or-die start on Thursday against the Rockies. If he pitches well, he likely keeps his spot in the rotation for at least another start. If he doesn’t, get ready for the return of Eduardo Rodriguez.

It really might be that simple, and Rodriguez feels he’s closer than ever to being big league ready, thanks to a change in mechanics inspired by teammate David Price that led to the best start of E-Rod’s rehab on Tuesday in Pawtucket.

Rodriguez went seven innings, allowing four hits and one run, striking out seven and walking none in a win over Lehigh Valley. He didn’t quite have last year’s power, with a 92 mph fastball, but he attributed the Ks to something else.

“I can say it was better command,” Rodriguez said...
