 < Previous season     

The 2016 Boston Red Sox season is the 116th season in the team's history, and their 105th season at Fenway Park.

2016 was the sixth straight season for the Red Sox to play opening day on the road, opening up the season against their 2015 season closing opponent, Cleveland Indians. The Sox will wrap up the season at home for the second time in the last three years. It will be the first time since 2009 they will not finish the season on the road or at home against their rival, the New York Yankees.

On August 1, 2015, NESN announced that long time play-by-play announcer Don Orsillo would not be returning for the 2016 season. He was replaced by Dave O'Brien (Boston Red Sox Radio Network), who will be replaced in turn by Tim Neverett (Root Sports Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Pirates Radio Network).[1] NESN also announced that the color analyst position would be filled with a three-man rotation of Jerry Remy, Dennis Eckersley and Steve Lyons and will employ a three-man booth with different combinations of the three for selected games.[2]

David Ortiz announced that the upcoming season will be his last.

Regular season

Opening Day, April 5 in Cleveland

The opening day game, scheduled for April 4, was postponed to April 5, due to cold weather. The game was called two hours prior to game time.[9]

On April 5, in his Red Sox debut, David Price struck out ten Indians batters and earned the win. He became the fifth Red Sox pitcher to win an opening day game in his debut for the ball club and the first since Pedro Martínez did it in 1998. Mookie Betts went deep in the third innings, scoring Jackie Bradley, Jr. and gave Boston an early 2–0 lead. In a four-hit inning, Cleveland brought two runners home and the game was tied at two in the bottom of the fourth. In the sixth, on a Travis Shaw single, Hanley Ramírez took third base from first, and scored on a Brock Holt blooper to left field. Travis Shaw took third on a Blake Swihart ground out and scored on a wild pitch by Corey Kluber. Junichi Tazawa and Koji Uehara retired all batters they faced in the seventh and eighth respectively and with Craig Kimbrel warming in the bullpen and Dustin Pedroia on first, David Ortiz hit his fifth opening day home run of his career, extending the lead to 6–2. Although not a save situation, Kimbrel made his Red Sox debut in the ninth and shut the door, allowing a walk and striking out two.

April

April 6–7, in Cleveland
The series in Cleveland ended on a sour note after Red Sox reliever Junichi Tazawa let up a game-winning home run to former Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli, who was influential in the Sox's 2013 World Series run.
Red Sox tied the series 1–1 (12–9 runs)
April 8–10, in Toronto
In the series opener, Joe Kelly was rocked for 7 earned runs in 3 innings, leaving the Red Sox in a big hole due to Josh Donaldson's grand slam, but Brock Holt would hit a grand slam of his own and the Sox would win the game after a furious comeback effort. The next day, the Red Sox tagged knuckleballer R. A. Dickey for 7 runs to improve to 3-1. However, the Sox lost the third game of the series as two runs given up by Steven Wright in the first inning proved to make all the difference as the Red Sox failed to score 6+ runs in a game for the first time this season.
Red Sox won the series 2–1 (16–14 runs)
April 11–13, vs. Baltimore
The Red Sox then came home to face the undefeated Orioles. David Price underperformed in his Boston home opener, giving up 5 runs in the third after the Sox jumped out to an early 3-0 lead, but it was Craig Kimbrel who took the loss after giving up a 3-run homer to Chris Davis to break a 6-6 tie in the top of the 9th. On the 12th, the Orioles' bats outperformed Boston's as Mike Wright and Clay Buchholz both failed to pitch 6 innings. In the series finale, the Red Sox finally gave Baltimore its first loss on the season as the bullpen proved to be strong, holding a 2-run lead for four innings.
Red Sox lost the series 1–2 (16–20 runs)
April 15–18, vs. Toronto
Catcher Christian Vazquez returned to the Red Sox lineup for the first time since 2014 after undergoing Tommy John surgery, going 2-for-4 and making some great defensive plays. Travis Shaw's 2 2-out RBI made the difference as the Sox backed Porcello for a win. David Price earned his first home win the next day after his solid pitching was supported by Xander Bogaerts's 3-run home run. But much like the previous weekend, the Sox dropped the third game of the series after the offense went cold to give Steven Wright another loss despite only giving up 2 runs in 6 innings. On Patriots' Day, Clay Buchholz had one of his best career outings, but it was spoiled after Koji Uehara and combined to give up 4 runs in the eighth.
Red Sox tied the series 2–2 (15–14 runs)
April 19–21, vs. Tampa Bay
Drew Smyly held the Red Sox to 1 hit, getting out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the third inning, which would prove to be important as the Rays won, 3-0, in 10 innings after neither team scored through 9. But the Sox would rebound by scoring 6 runs off of Tampa Bay ace Chris Archer, who was struggling mightily to open the season. David Price pitched poorly in the rubber match; after the Red Sox jumped out to a 5-1 lead in the first inning, Price gave up 7 runs and the offense was unable to keep up with the bullpen's poor work in a Red Sox loss that had many fans[who?] questioning John Farrell's decision-making skills as a manager.[according to whom?]
Red Sox lost the series 1–2 (15–18 runs)
April 22–24, in Houston
The Red Sox were finally able to give Steven Wright run support as Mookie Betts finished a homer shy of the cycle in the Red Sox's 6-2 win. The next day, Clay Buchholz's instability was exposed as he gave up a game-winning grand slam to Colby Rasmus in the 6th inning of the Red Sox's loss. The Red Sox would win the rubber match in 12 innings. Craig Kimbrel blew the save opportunity as Colby Rasmus hit another home run against the Red Sox to tie the game, but Heath Hembree pitched 3 scoreless innings and Jackie Bradley, Jr. drove in 2 runs in the 12th to seal the series victory for the Red Sox.
Red Sox won the series 2–1 (16–15 runs)
April 25–28, in/vs. Atlanta
Coming in late to a home-and-home 4 game series against the league's worst team, the Red Sox bats were unable to score against Braves ace Julio Teheran. Jackie Bradley, Jr.'s home run was the only run scored by either team in the game as Rick Porcello fired 6.1 scoreless innings. But the bats would reawaken the next day as the Red Sox scored 11 runs. David Price excelled in the Red Sox's win, giving up 2 runs over 8 innings. The teams returned to Boston and Dustin Pedroia's grand slam aided Steven Wright, who finished the day with the third best ERA in the American League (after Jordan Zimmermann and Mat Latos), in the Red Sox's 9-4 win. However, Clay Buchholz could not keep the strong pitching going as he gave up 5 runs in a 5-3 loss.
Red Sox won the series 3–1 (24–13 runs)
April 29–30, vs. New York
The Red Sox entered their first of 6 series against their arch-rivals as Henry Owens started against Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka. Owens struggled with command throughout the game, but he only gave up 2 runs. The Red Sox offense remained scoreless until the 7th inning, when Jackie Bradley, Jr. continued his week of clutch hitting with a first-pitch 2 RBI double off the Green Monster. But the offense continued to perform well when David Ortiz hit a towering 2-run home run to center off of elite setup man Dellin Betances, who had an sub-1.00 ERA and a 20 K/9 rate entering the game. Koji Uehara and Craig Kimbrel retired the last 6 batters to preserve Boston's 4-2 win. Rick Porcello went 7 shutout innings to improve to 5–0 and Robbie Ross, Jr. & Junichi Tazawa held New York scoreless in a 8–0 win to wrap up the month of April.

May

May 1, vs. New York (cont.)
The Red Sox completed the three-game sweep with the help of a Christian Vázquez home run in the seventh off of Dellin Betances, who posted an 0.9 ERA and 0.8 WHIP before the series. David Price gave up six earned runs but improved to 4–0 on the season with a 6.14 ERA and a 2.88 FIP.
Red Sox won the series 3–0 (20–9 runs)
May 3–5, in Chicago
Coming into the series, the White Sox had the best record and the best pitching staff in the AL. That good pitching showed up in the first game, with Quintana only giving up one run in eight innings of work, wasting another good start of Steven Wright, who gave up two runs in six innings. Boston took a five inning lead in the second game, off of a David Ortiz home run, earning the first win for Clay Buchholz. Craig Kimbrel preserved the 5–2 win with his ninth save. In game three, the Red Sox scored in each of the first three innings and never looked back, taking the rubber match 7–3.
Red Sox won the series 2–1 (13–9 runs)
May 6–8, in the Bronx
With the bases loaded and one out in a one-run game, David Ortiz was called out on strikes on a 3–2 pitch below the knees in the top of the ninth. Ortiz and John Farrell were both ejected, arguing the calls made by home plate umpire Ron Kulpa. Rick Porcello was charged with his first loss of the season. The following day, David Price gave up six runs and also lost his first game in a 1–8 effort. Steven Wright pitched a complete three-hit, one-run game to avoid the sweep. All six runs of the game were scored on the long ball, with David Ortiz going deep twice.
Red Sox lost the series 1–2 (9–12 runs)
May 9–11, vs. Oakland
Down 1–4 after three innings, the Red Sox put up a six-spot in the fourth, chasing Oakland's ace Sonny Gray from the game, and continued to score in the next three innings for another seven runs. Jackie Bradley, Jr. hit his first career grand slam and earned six RBI. In game two, Sean O'Sullivan made his first start for Boston. Despite giving up 12 hits, he made it through the sixth and earned the win. Boston gave him 13 runs of support, 11 in the first five innings. Hanley Ramírez hit the second longest home run of the season thus far, estimated at 468 feet, over the far end of the green monster. Travis Shaw drove in five runs. Rick Porcello continued his strong season with another good outing, going 6 23 innings with six hits and 3 runs allowed. The bats stayed hot, scoring eleven runs from the second through the sixth inning. Jackie Bradley, Jr. hit two long balls and drove in another six runs. The Red Sox and Athletics combined for 82 hits in the series, with Boston out-hitting the A's 48–34. With three games with 13+ runs scored, the Red Sox became the seventh team in Major League history to do so and the first since the 1999 Cleveland Indians.
Red Sox won the series 3–0 (40–15 runs)
May 12–15, vs. Houston
The Red Sox continued their hot offense, scoring in each inning except the fourth and fifth. They extended their streak of 11+ runs scored to four, the first time since the Braves did it in 2007. David Price bounced back, allowing one run in 6 23 innings and striking out twelve. David Wright gave up the most runs this season in game two of the series, five in 4 13 innings of work, giving up the 5–1 lead in the fifth. In the sixth Houston scored two runs and the offense could only get back one. In game three, the Astros held their one run lead until the ninth, but David Ortiz batted home both the game-tying run in the ninth inning and the game-winning run in extra innings at Fenway Park as he doubled, tripled and homered against the Houston Astros. The double was the walk-off hit to lift the Red Sox to a 6–5 win in the 11th inning,[10] his 20th career walk-off hit.[11] The triple had tied the score in the ninth inning, and, in a career where he averaged approximately one triple per season, this game marked the first time he had at least one of each type of extra base hit in the same game. Further, the double was the 600th of Ortiz' career, making him the 15th player all time to reach the milestone. He also joined Hank Aaron and Barry Bonds as the third player with 500 career home runs and 600 career doubles.[12] One day later, the Astros again had a one-run lead in late innings, but Boston came back in the seventh with the help of the sun, which continued the inning with two outs and consequently the tying and winning run scored, the latter on a Mookie Betts triple. Craig Kimbrel recorded his tenth save. The Red Sox finished their homestand with a 6–1 record and 73 runs scored.
Red Sox won the series 3–1 (33–22 runs)
May 17–18, in Kansas City
The May 16 game was rained out and rescheduled as part of a day-night-doubleheader on May 18. In game 1, the Royals took an early 5–1 lead in the fourth. Boston's rally fell one run short and in the eighth Kansas City added three more to put the game virtually out of reach. Game 2 saw another good start of Steven Wright got wasted. He pitched a complete game, giving up three runs on three hits but the offense could only give him two runs of support. Chris Young hit his first home run in a Red Sox uniform but Royals pitching struck out 13 Red Sox batters. This was the fourth time in eight starts, Wright has gotten three runs or less in support. Jackie Bradley, Jr. extended his hitting streak to 23 games, with a one-out single in the ninth. David Price continued his good work in game 3 of the series, giving up 2 runs in 7 13 innings. The Red Sox extended their home run streak to 19 games on a Jackie Bradley, Jr. solo shot in the second inning and never looked back to avoid the sweep.
Red Sox lost the series 1–2 (11–13 runs)
May 20–22, vs. Cleveland
Cleveland pitching held the Red Sox to two runs, with one run in each of the first two innings. The Indians scored four runs in the third and that was all of the runs scored in the game. In game two, after returning from the DL with a right shoulder impingement, starting pitcher Joe Kelly took a no-hitter through 6 23 IP against the Cleveland Indians until Juan Uribe broke it up with a double. Boston won, 9–1.[13] In the rubber match, David Ortiz, wo extended the team home run streak to 22 games in the fifth, made a bid for the cycle, but a fly ball to the deepest part of Fenway Park bounced into the stands for an automatic double instead of the needed triple. Jackie Bradley, Jr. extended his league best hitting streak to 27. Rick Porcello gave up two runs in 5 23 innings and earned his seventh win in the 5–2 contest.
Red Sox won the series 2–1 (16–7 runs)
May 24–26, vs. Colorado
Colorado's starter Jorge De La Rosa was chased after 3 13 innings, allowing seven runs on nine hits. David Price gave up five hits and three runs in seven innings of work. In game two, the offense scored seven times of Chad Bettis, who was pulled after 4 23 innings. Stve Wright had another good outing, allowing three runs, two of them earned, in his seven innings. Jackie Bradley, Jr. snapped his hitting streak of 29 consecutive games in game three. The offense could only get two runs and Clay Buchholz, who gave up six runs in five innings, lost his place in the rotation after the game.
Red Sox won the series 2–1 (20–14 runs)
May 27–29, in Toronto
Down 2–5 after six innings, Boston tied the game in the eighth but Josh Donaldson gave Toronto the win with his second home run of the night. Joe Kelly went only 4 23 innings. Tommy Layne and Junichi Tazawa could not protect a four-run lead after seven innings. Craig Kimbrel was summoned from the bullpen for the five out save which he eventually blew, with the tying run on third base with only one out. The Red Sox retook the lead in the ninth on a David Ortiz home run. After two quick outs in the bottom of the inning and two times down to their last strike, Kimbrel gave up three consecutive hits and the Blue Jays walked off. Game three went into extra innings and Gavin Floyd walked Swihart & Betts in the eleventh inning and both eventually scored. With his career-high 39 pitch outing the day before, Kimbrel was unavailable and Koji Uehara earned his first save since August 5, 2015. Clay Buchholz was credited with the win, with his first relief appearance since August 17, 2008, also against the Blue Jays. Xander Bogaerts extended his MLB-best hitting streak to 22 games. Dustin Pedroia kept his hitting streak against the Blue Jays alive, now sitting at 23 games. With the win the Red Sox are the first team in the American League to 30 wins.
Red Sox lost the series 1–2 (19–20 runs)
May 30–31, in Baltimore
Steven Wright pitched a four-hit, two-run complete game in Camden Yards and received seven runs of support, including the first career-home run by Marco Hernández, a three-run shot in the eighth. That was Wright's thrid complete game of the season. Mookie Betts exploded in the second game of the series, with three home runs and he drove in five runs. That was presumably the first three-home run-game by a Red Sox leadoff hitter in the history of the franchise. Eduardo Rodríguez returned from the disabled list, went six innings and gave up two runs on six hits.
