Enjoying the Ride

Following are the Red Sox starters’ innings pitched and earned runs given up for every start this season.

5 IP, 2 ER (Lester @ Yankees)
7 IP, 1 ER (Buchholz @ Yankees)
5 IP, 3 ER (Dempster @ Yankees)
5 IP, 3 ER (Doubront @ Jays)
4 1/3 IP, 2 ER (Lackey’s injury-shortened start @ Jays)
7 IP, 0 ER (Lester @ Jays)
7 IP, 0 ER (Buchholz vs Orioles)
5 IP, 1 ER (Dempster vs Orioles)
5 IP, 2 ER (Aceves vs Orioles)
7 IP, 1 ER (Lester vs Rays)
8 IP, 0 ER (Buchholz vs Rays)
7 IP, 1 ER (Dempster vs. Rays)
5 IP, 2 ER (Doubront @ Indians)
5 IP, 3 ER (Aceves @ Indians)
7 IP, 2 ER (Lester @ Indians)
8 IP, 2 ER (Buchholz vs Royals)

No starter has yet given up more than 3 earned runs. Aceves (who’s been great for a spot starter), Doubront, and (to a lesser extent) Dempster have taxed the bullpen somewhat, but really, this is an incredible streak.

  • 1-2-3 inning for Dempster. 2-1 Sox after one and a half, streak still intact.
