Breaking News: ”I Could Not Take It Anymore”, Red Sox Star Slaps Coach Over ‘Unfair ‘ Judgement On…

Tanner Houck shuts out the Guardians for the whole game.

Tanner Houck had to have a strong start for the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night. The right-hander had the finest outing of his professional life in response to the call.

Tanner Houck throws shutout vs. Guardians

Houck faced the Cleveland Guardians and in just 94 pitches delivered a full game shutout, the first of his five-year MLB career. He is the first starter for the Red Sox to pitch a perfect game since June 20, 2022, when Michael Wacha did it against the Los Angeles Angels.

In Boston’s 2-0 win, Houck gave up only three hits and recorded nine strikeouts against zero walks. It just took one hour and forty-nine minutes to play the game because of his effective outing. MLB’s nine-inning game was the shortest since 2010.

After the victory, Red Sox manager Alex Cora remarked of Houck, “He was under control til the end.” “The idea of going to the bullpen was never entertained. He played that game.”

The Red Sox needed Houck’s strong performance the most. Following back-to-back losses, Garrett Whitlock’s strained oblique put him on the disabled list, adding another arm to Boston’s already thin starting rotation. Now, when Brennan Bernardino takes the mound as the starter on Thursday, the bullpen will be well-rested evening.

The Red Sox’s season record now stands at 10-9. They will get an opportunity to split their series with Cleveland before traveling to Pittsburgh for a three-game series.

Cora gives the good and terrible news about Devers and Whitlock.

There’s a new starter for the Boston Red Sox on the disabled list.

Before Wednesday’s game against the Cleveland Guardians, manager Alex Cora revealed that right-hander Garrett Whitlock will be placed on the injured list due to an oblique injury. Oblique stiffness caused Whitlock to be lifted from his Tuesday start after just 54 pitches.

Left-handed Joe Whitlock was replaced on the list by Jacques, who was called up.

Whitlock is added to the injured list with starters Lucas Giolito (season-ending Tommy John surgery) and Nick Pivetta (elbow). After sustaining a flexor injury, Pivetta has recovered and should shortly throw a bullpen session.

Rafael Devers, the third baseman for Boston, is expected to play on Wednesday despite leaving Tuesday’s game due to knee soreness. He will be listed as the designated hitter.

The Red Sox are hoping to win at Fenway Park after suffering two straight defeats to Cleveland. The game on Wednesday starts at 7:10 p.m. ET with the first pitch.
