    April

    April, 6–8, in Philadelphia
    On April 6, right after the opening day game against the Phillies, the Red Sox announced that they signed free-agent-to-be RHP Rick Porcello to a four-year, $82.5 million contract extension through 2019, contradicting an earlier report, that both parties won't engage in contract negotiations during the season.[14][15] Game 2: In game two of the three-game road series in Philadelphia, Hanley Ramírez left the bases loaded, against former Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon, in the top of the eighth by flying out to Ben Revere on the warning track, just missing his second grand slam of the season and Boston lost 2–4. Game 3: In the final game, Xander Bogaerts drove in three runs with a triple and pitcher Justin Masterson had one RBI in two hits and the Red Sox took the opening series with a 6–2 win.
    Red Sox won the series 2–1 (16–6 runs)

    April, 10–12, in New York (AL)
    Game 1: Game one of the first series against the Yankees went into extra innings, after a blown save by Edward Mujica in the bottom of the ninth tying the game 3–3. In the bottom of the 12th inning, during Carlos Beltrán's at bat, some of the lights went out in Yankee stadium, and the game went into a light delay. Play resumed after a 16-minute delay. The game remained tied until the top of the 16th, when David Ortiz went deep. But Mark Teixeira tied the game in the bottom with a home run as well. In the top of the 18th, Red Sox took the lead again with an RBI single by Pablo Sandoval, but yet again the Yankees tied it with an RBI double by Beltrán. In the top of the 19th Mookie Betts drove in Bogaerts with a sacrifice fly and this time New York could not answer, despite a leadoff single by Jacoby Ellsbury. Having used all of their bullpen both teams relied on long relief. Esmil Rogers went 4 2/3 innings, and 81 pitches for New York and Steven Wright had 5 innings and 78 pitches. The game went 6 hours and 49 minutes, the longest in Red Sox Franschise history. Game 2: Joe Kelly, in his first start of the season, pitched one run, one hit ball for seven innings in game two of the series. Brock Holt had a 4 hit day with 3 RBIs, Dustin Pedroia and Daniel Nava collected 2 RBIs each. Alexi Ogando gave up three 2-out hits in the eighth, one three-run shot by Chris Young, before Anthony Varvaro got the last out in the eighth and Robbie Ross shut the door in the ninth. Game 3: Clay Buchholz could not repeat his stellar opening day outing, allowing 10 runs (9 earned) in 3 1/3 innings and the Red Sox dropped the series finale 4–14 in the Bronx.
    Red Sox won the series 2–1 (18–23 runs)

    April, 13–15, vs. Washington
    Game 1: Nationals Starter Jordan Zimmermann was chased after 2 1/3 innings in the Red Sox home opener, when the Red Sox scored eight runs in the first three innings, with the help of questionable defenese by Washington in the third. Betts robbed Bryce Harper of a home run in the first inning, stole two bases in one play in the same inning and had a three-run home run in the third. Porcello allowed four runs, three earned, in eight innings of work and the Red Sox won 9–4. Before the game closer Koji Uehara was activated from the 15-day DL and Tommy Layne was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket. Game 2: After surrendering a 5–1 lead to a six-run top of the fifth by the Nationals, Boston took advantage of two hit batsmen and three errors (two by pitcher Blake Treinen on the same play) in the bottom of the seventh to regain the lead, scoring three runs without the benefit of a hit. Koji Uehara earned his first save in his first appearance of the season with a perfect ninth inning. The Red Sox secured the first three series in a season for the first time since 1952 and scored the most runs in a hitless inning since August 25, 2001 against the Rangers. Pablo Sandoval left the game early due to a bruised foot, which moved Hanley Ramírez back to the infield, and an MRI for Xander Bogaerts, who was sidelined for the game, came back clean. Game 3: Washington avoided the sweep on Jackie Robinson Day and chased Wade Miley early from the game in the bottom of the third inning. Boston's rally ended in the top of the seventh when Tyler Moore lifted a two-run home run over the Green Monster and eventually lost the game 5–10.
    Red Sox won the series 2–1 (22–21 runs)

    April, 17–20, vs. Baltimore
    Game 1: Orioles starter Ubaldo Jiménez was ejected after 3 2/3 innings for hitting Pablo Sandoval up on the right shoulder near the head in the first game of a four-game series. Ryan Hanigan tied the game in the bottom of fifth with his first long ball as a member of the Red Sox. In the bottom of the ninth Mike Napoli drew a lead-off walk, Daniel Nava moved him in scoring position with a sacrifice bunt and Xander Bogaerts drove him in with a bloop single for the first Boston walk-off of the season. Game 2: In game 2 Orioles pitching held the Red Sox offense to just one run while their own offense got 11 hits from Clay Buchholz but only scored twice. Buchholz pitched himself out of a bases-loaded, nobody out situation in the bottom of the fifth, David Ortiz and Brock Holt had both a three hit day, accounting for six of the seven hits. Game 3: Rick Porcello and Miguel González exchanged home runs in the first inning, a two-run shot by Adam Jones and a three-run shot by Hanley Ramírez, in the third game. That was all the offense for the Red Sox while Baltimore scored six more runs, all charged to Porcello. The game was delayed in the middle of the fourth due to an injury by home plate umpire Paul Emmel, the umpires finished the game with three men. David Ortiz was ejected in the bottom of fifth, arguing a check swing appeal. Game 4: The final game of the four-game series was rain shortened to seven innings on Patriots' Day and the 103rd birthday of Fenway Park. Boston scored four times and brought ten batters to the plate on only one hit in the bottom of the third, supporting one-run ball from Justin Masterson in five innings. The game was called after a 1:42 hour delay.
    Red Sox split the series 2–2 (14–15 runs)

    April, 21–23, in St. Petersburg
    Game 1: Koji Uehara earned this second save of the season, after shutout game by Wade Miley with the help of the bullpen, against the Rays. The lone run of the game was scored on a throwing error by second baseman Ryan Brett in the top of the third inning. Game 2: Joe Kelly went into the sixth inning with a four-run lead, but gave up four straight hits followed by a bases loaded walk with nobody out. Craig Breslow could not stop the bleeding and allowed two inherited runners to score, tying the game 5–5. Edward Mujica gave up two more runs in the bottom of the seventh from which the Red Sox could not recover. Dustin Pedroia hit a two-run home run and David Ortiz passed Chipper Jones on the all-time home run leader list to take sole possession of 32nd place with 469 career home runs. Game 3: Clay Buchholz went six innings allowing only two hits and one run with a season high ten strikeouts. The game remained tied into the bottom of the ninth inning, where Buchholz saw his efforts wasted with René Rivera's hit off of Anthony Varvaro down the third base line, allowing Tim Beckham to score the walk-off run from second base. This was the first series lost by the Red Sox this season.
    Red Sox lost the series 1–2 (7–9 runs)

    April, 24–26, in Baltimore
    Game 1: Rick Porcello struck out the first five Baltimore batters he faced, ending up with a season high seven strikeouts for the game, but struggled in the bottom of the fourth, giving up a two-run home run to Jimmy Paredes. With two outs in the top of the fifth Miguel González walked Mookie Betts and gave up a single to Dustin Pedroia before David Ortiz and Hanley Ramírez hit back-to-back home runs, the first consecutive home runs for the Red Sox in this season. Porcello headed into the seventh inning but allowed a lead-off walk followed by a single. Craig Breslow took over and loaded the bases with an intentional base on balls after a successful sacrifice bunt. O's tied the game with a sacrifice fly by Everth Cabrera. Alexi Ogando reloaded the bases by walking Steve Pearce but struck out Manny Machado to end the inning. Again with two outs Pablo Sandoval walked, Allen Craig reached on an error by Machado and Brock Holt hit a three-run shot in the top of the eighth, his first home run of the season. Junichi Tazawa gave up his first run of the season, a solo home run to Chris Davis and handed the ball to closer Koji Uehara who gave up two hits but stranded the runners on first and third. Game 2: The Orioles took an early lead but Mike Napoli quickly tied the game with his first home run of the season. Baltimore took the lead again, with a solo home run in the bottom of the fifth by Jimmy Paredes. The Red Sox could tie the game in the top of the ninth with the help of struggling infield defense. In the top of tenth Boston took the lead with a solo home run by Xander Bogaerts but Koji Uehara could not close the game, allowing his first two earned runs of the season and his first blown save. Prior to the game Shane Victorino was placed on the disabled list and Matt Barnes got the call-up from Triple-A Pawtucket. He pitched two scoreless innings in relief and was optioned back to the PawSox for Heath Hembree on Sunday. Game 3: Wade Miley imploded in the third inning, giving up six earned runs. This was nearly a carbon copy of this second to last outing against the Nationals, giving up seven runs, six earned, in 2 1/3 innings. Baltimore's bats stayed hot, adding 11 more runs against the Boston bullpen. Hanley Ramírez homered twice and Pablo Sandoval hit his first home run of the season. The Red Sox dropped two series in a row, after winning the first three series and splitting the fourth. Barnes was optioned to Pawtucket and Steven Wright was called up.
    Red Sox lost the series 1–2 (18–28 runs)

    April, 27–29, vs. Toronto
    Game 1: Mookie Betts capped his three-hit night with a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth against the Blue Jays. The Red Sox came back from a 2–5 deficit heading to the bottom of the fourth, scoring single runs in the fourth, fifth, eighth and ninth. Joe Kelly struck out 10, Pablo Sandoval drove in three and hit his first home run in Fenway Park. Steven Wright was optioned to Pawtucket, without any playing time in this stint, and Jackie Bradley, Jr. was called up. Game 2: Clay Buchholz couldn't protect a four-run lead and didn't make it through the third inning, giving up five runs on six hits (all but one in the third inning). The bullpen couldn't keep Boston in the game, giving up another six runs. Pablo Sandoval had a four-hit night, but no RBI, Hanley Ramírez hit his 200th career home run, leading the league in home runs with nine, tied with Nelson Cruz. Anthony Varvaro was designated for assignment and Jackie Bradley, Jr. was optioned to Triple-A when the Red Sox called up Tommy Layne and Dalier Hinojosa. Game 3: Rick Porcello gave Boston's roughed up rotation, entering the day with a MLB-worst 6.03 ERA, a seven inning two-hit performance, allowing only one run. Koji Uehara earned his fourth save, striking out the side. Hanley Ramírez finished a strong April, with his tenth home run of the season, still tied with Nelson Cruz for the league lead, tying David Ortiz for the club record for homers before May 1, and bested his personal record in the same time-span, when he hit eight long balls with the Marlins in 2008. The Red Sox finished April with a 12–10 record, their first month over .500 since September 2013.
    Red Sox won the series 2–1 (18–17 runs)

    May

    May, 1–3, vs. New York (AL)
    Game 1: The Red Sox could not give Justin Masterson enough run-support in his 6+-innings, two-runs outing. Allen Craig hit his first home run of the season and Boston fell victim to fan interference in the bottom of the fourth, when a spectator in a Red Sox jacket reached over and deflected a Ryan Hanigan double, which could have scored Xander Bogaerts from first. Hanigan broke his fifth metacarpal bone during the game and was put on the disabled list and top prospect Blake Swihart was called up. Game 2: Wade Miley recovered from his last outing and pitched seven innings, allowing three runs. Dustin Pedroia hit his fifth home run of the season and Blake Swihart had his first major league hit and scored his first run but that was all the offense the Red Sox could muster and fell back to .500 for the first time since April 8. Game 3: Joe Kelly was pulled after 4 2/3 innings and the slide continued for Boston, falling under .500 for the first time this season, when New York scored eight runs before the Red Sox could assemble a five-run bottom of the sixth. Mike Napoli hit his second home run of the season. Dalier Hinojosa made his major league debut, in a hit-less and scoreless outing, despite hitting a batter and giving up three base on balls. With Ryan Hanigan heading to the 60-day disabled list, Boston claimed Luis Jiménez off of waivers from the Brewers and added him to the 25-man roster, sending down Dalier Hinojosa to Pawtucket.
    Red Sox lost the series 0–3 (9–15 runs)

    May, 4–6, vs. Tampa Bay
    Game 1: John Farrell lost a managerial challenge with two outs in the top of the first inning: a James Loney double was upheld by umpires, allowing the Rays to score two runs in the frame thanks to subsequent hits from Evan Longoria and David DeJesus. Starter Clay Buchholz then surrendered two more runs in the top of the second as Joey Butler hit a home run with Asdrubal Cabrera on base. The Rays would tack on one more run in the seventh. Boston's lone run of the game came courtesy of back-to-back triples from Brock Holt and Xander Bogaerts. Tampa Bay starter Jake Odorizzi struck out six batters for the win to continue the Red Sox' May slide. Game 2: Mookie Betts was responsible for all the offense of the game, going deep twice, his first multi-home run game of his career. Rick Porcello pitched seven shutout innings and Koji Uehara earned his fifth save. Game 3: Evan Longoria hit two solo home runs for the Rays and Joey Butler knocked in two runs to take the series for Tampa Bay. Boston's three RBIs included Blake Swihart's first and Mookie Betts' eighteenth of the year, but Justin Masterson's pitching wasn't good enough to make them stand up. The Red Sox designated Edward Mujica for assignment and relieved pitching coach Juan Nieves of his duties.
    Red Sox lost the series, 1–2 (6–10 runs)

    May, 8–10, in Toronto
    Prior to the series, David Ortiz lost his appeal for a one-game suspension and the Red Sox called up Travis Shaw. Game 1: With the bases loaded and nobody out in the top of the fourth, when Aaron Sanchez walked two and hit Allen Craig with a pitch, Boston could not score and were shut-out for the first time this season, getting outhit 12 to 2 and outscored by seven. For the last seven games, Boston left 51 runners on base and went 4–52 with runners in scoring position in that same time-span. Matt Barnes replaced Travis Shaw on the active roster and Carl Willis was introduced as the new pitching coach. Game 2: Red Sox pitching allowed eight walks and Toronto took advantage of it. Joe Kelly threw over 60 pitches in the first two innings, loading the bases in both innings but only allowed one run in each. In the bottom of the fourth, Edwin Encarnacion drove in two walks with a three-run shot. Dustin Pedroia brought Mookie Betts home on base hit, but that was all the offense the Red Sox had to show for. Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Steven Wright were called up in exchange for Allen Craig and Robbie Ross, Jr., who were optioned to Pawtucket. Game 3: Mike Napoli and Pablo Sandoval both went deep to avoid the sweep. Napoli in the first inning, driving in three, and Sandoval in the in the fifth, with Hanley Ramírez on base. Clay Buchholz pitched 6 1/3 innings, giving up 3 earned runs on seven hits. Koji Uehara closed the game, his sixth save. Shane Victorino was activated from the disabled list and to make room on the 25-man roster, Luis Jiménez was designated for assignment. After playing the first 31 games against teams from the east, 25 of those games against opponents in their own division, the Red Sox headed west to play the next 27 games against the American League West and the Twins.
    Red Sox lost the series, 1–2 (7–17 runs)

    May, 11–13, in Oakland
    Game 1: Matt Barnes earned his first major league win, pitching the tenth and eleventh inning in an extra-innings game against the Athletics. Pablo Sandoval went deep in the eleventh, which proved to be the difference in the game. Game 2: Justin Masterson struggled and was pulled after giving up 6 earned runs on 6 hits in 2 1/3 innings. Steven Wright saved the bullpen by eating up the remaining 5 2/3 innings. Facing a struggling opposing pitcher in Drew Pomeranz (0–3 and a 6.57 ERA in his last five starts), the offense was not able to produce. This painted a similar picture when they faced Bud Norris (1–2 and a 17.42 ERA in three starts at that time) on April 26 and Drew Hutchison (1–0 and an 8.88 ERA for his last five starts at that time) on May 9. Game 3: Wade Miley pitched 6 2/3 shutout innings and the bullpen held its end of the bargain. Daniel Nava drove in one run in the second and scored on a throwing error by Marcus Semien in the eighth inning. Justin Masterson was put on the 15-day disabled list and Robbie Ross, Jr. was called up from Pawtucket.
    Red Sox won the series, 2–1 (9–13 runs)

    May, 14–17, in Seattle
    Game 1: Shane Victorino hit his first home run of the season and Mookie Betts drove in the winning run in the top of the ninth with a sacrifice fly, which left fielder Rickie Weeks ultimately dropped. Joe Kelly held Seattle to just one run over 6 1/3 innings. Game 2: A stellar eight-inning, three-hit, one-run outing by Clay Buchholz went for naught, when the offense could provide only one run of support, an RBI triple by Xander Bogaerts. The Mariners walked off in the bottom of the ninth on a Nelson Cruz single. Game 3: Pablo Sandoval and David Ortiz both took Félix Hernández deep for solo shots, Blake Swihart, RBI double, and Brock Holt, RBI groundout, added two more runs to support Rick Porcello's two-run outing, pitching 6 2/3 innings. Game 4: Steven Wright, in his first major league start, allowed three runs over 5 frames but without any run support by the offense. The Red Sox headed back home from the ten-game road trip, and while the struggling pitching stabilized the offense went quiet, scoring only 23 runs in this ten game stretch.
    Red Sox split the series, 2–2 (7–10 runs)

    May, 19–21, vs. Texas
    Game 1: David Ortiz and Mike Napoli both homered and collected another RBI on a single each to propel the Red Sox past the Rangers. Wade Miley went seven innings and allowed two runs on seven strike outs, Koji Uehara gave up his first hit and run since his blown save on April 26, a home run by Leonys Martín with nobody out, but earned his tenth save of the season. Game 2: Joe Kelly gave up two runs in seven innings, but that all Texas needed. Boston's lone run came on a long ball by Xander Bogaerts in the bottom of the fifth. Game 3: The Rangers scored early when they plated two runs on a ground out and an error and added a third on a home run by Mitch Moreland. The offense could only produce one run on a David Ortiz ground out. Rusney Castillo got the call-up and Jackie Bradley, Jr. was optioned to Triple-A.
    Red Sox lost the series, 1–2 (6–8 runs)

    May, 22–24, vs. Los Angeles
    Game 1: The Red Sox jumped in front early thanks to a home run by Mike Napoli in the bottom of the second. In the fourth both teams scored twice before Rick Porcello collapsed in the top of the fifth, giving up seven runs on its own and two more runs were charged to reliever Matt Barnes, from which Boston could not recover. Robbie Ross, Jr. was optioned to Pawtucket and Heath Hembree was called up. Game 2: Mike Napoli went yard twice to back a two-run second major league start by Steven Wright. Xander Bogaerts and Mookie Betts both drove in two. Anthony Varvaro, who was designated for assignment on April 29 and claimed by Cubs on May 3, was returned to Boston and put on the disabled list due to a torn flexor tendon. Shane Victorino was also put on the disabled list. He was replaced by Jeff Bianchi on the active roster. Game 3: Wade Miley held the Angels to just four hits and one run in eight innings. Mike Napoli hit his fourth home run of the series and collected four RBIs, Xander Bogaerts was 4–4 at the plate.
    Red Sox won the series, 2–1 (19–16 runs)

    May, 25–27, in Minneapolis
    Game 1: The Twins struck early, scoring seven runs in the first two innings, chasing Joe Kelly just after 1 2/3 innings from the game. The bullpen held the Twins scoreless for the remainder of the game but the offense could not overcome the early deficit, scoring only two runs. Game 2: Mike Napoli drove in David Ortiz for Boston's lone run and another strong outing by Clay Buchholz, allowing two runs in 7 1/3 innings, fell by the wayside. The game was 1:21 hours delayed due to rain. Boston acquired Carlos Peguero from the Rangers for cash considerations. Game 3: Rick Porcello dealt two quick innings but gave up three runs in the third and home runs in the fourth and sixth inning. Dustin Pedroia matched his 2014 season total in home runs with seven, with two two-run shots off of Phil Hughes in the third and fifth but was the only provider for runs in this game. Boston was swept for the second time this season and for the first time since 2006 by the Twins.
    Red Sox lost the series, 0–3 (7–15 runs)

    May, 28–31, in Arlington
    Prior to the series the Red Sox activated Carlos Peguero to the 25-man roster and called Robbie Ross, Jr. and Eduardo Rodríguez up from Pawtucket. Jeff Bianchi was designated for assignment, Heath Hembree was optioned to Triple-A and Daniel Nava was put on the disabled list. Game 1: In his major league debut, Eduardo Rodríguez pitched 7 2/3 shutout innings, striking out seven and giving up only three hits and two walks. Hanley Ramírez hit his first home run since April 29, Blake Swihart drove in two, Rusney Castillo collected his first RBI of the season, and Dustin Pedroia and Mookie Betts both had a three-hit night. Game 2: Steven Wright allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings but the bullpen could not hold Boston in the game, giving up two runs each in the seventh and in the eighth. Hanley Ramírez homered in the eighth to bring the Red Sox within a run at that time. Game 3: Wade Miley gave up five earned runs in 4 innings and the Red Sox were shutout for the third time this season. Game 4: Koji Uehara was charged with a blown save and the loss, giving up a two-out walk-off double to pinch hitter Josh Hamilton, after Pablo Sandoval committed his second error of the game and let the lead-off hitter reach. Boston pitching gave up only one earned run on the 3–4 loss. The Red Sox only scored 82 runs in the month of May, the worst record in the major leagues.
    Red Sox lost the series, 1–3 (12–20 runs)
