2013 Major League Baseball Regular Season First Half – News/ Updates


The Red Sox ousted the Toronto Blue Jays in a thrilling last game of their three-match series in Toronto, Canada on Sunday, April 7 at Rogers Centre.


The Boston Red Sox showed enormous power of hitting and stretched 13 runs’ lead. On the other hand, the Blue Jays could not even score a single run and lost the game with bitter humiliation of 13-0.


“He had about 2,000 feet of homers,” Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester said of Middlebrooks. “He obviously feels pretty good at the plate. It’s fun to watch. He said he was happy to meet me and then he got tackled, He started to say something else and then he got drilled. That was a good tackle.”


Middlebrooks added, “He got pretty close, I didn’t know if he was going to make it. I was trying to time it out of the corner of my eye. I was like ‘Am I going to have to shake this guy’s hand? I was blowing on it running down the line but it didn’t have enough steam.”


Red Sox’s second baseman Dustin Pedroia was exceptional on the plate as he scored two runs on two hits. He also ran for an RBI and his consistent .385 slugging percentage.


“We’re counting on him to be a big run producer,” former MVP Dustin Pedroia said. “He’s got that ability.”


Primarily, the Blue Jays were just not good on the day. Their pitchers did not do well and lost bitterly in the lost. They were all hammered by Red Sox’s offensive batters and in the end; they just watched their opponents humiliating them with tons of runs.


R.A. Dickey started the game for the Blue Jays and proved no good for them. He pitched 4.2 innings and received eight runs on ten hits along with seven earned runs and two home runs on blistering high 8.44 ERA.


“Throughout the course of the season you’re going to have a clunker or two,” Dickey said. “You just have to try and forget it as soon as you can. Obviously today was one of those days for me.”


On the other hand, the Red Sox’s starter Jon Lester delivered a wonderful spell of seven innings in which he held all the Blue Jays batters with striking force. He received only five hits and struck out six potential hitters on his perfect 1.50 ERA.


“A lot of quality strikes,” manager John Farrell said for his starter. “He delivered the ball downhill. He carried his stuff through the full seven innings.”


Later Middlebrooks also said for Lester, “His performance was kind of overshadowed because we hit six home runs, He shut out a good hitting team. All his pitches were on and when that cutter is on, he’s really dangerous.”


Overall, it was a good win for Red Sox early in the season. They now will come with more confidence in the next series. In the meanwhile, the Red Sox will play their next three-match series against the Baltimore Orioles.
