Closer Koji Uehara earns win Monday in Red Sox walk-off victory
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Red Sox closer Koji Uehara (2-1) rebounded from a blown save on Saturday to throw a pefect ninth inning, striking out two, and earn the win against the Blue Jays on Monday.

"With the pitch selection, I told Hani [catcher Ryan Hanigan] that I wanted to throw a lot more fastballs in this outing," Uehara said through a translator after the Red Sox’ 6-5 walkoff win, per WEEI.com. "I recognize the importance of the fastball after the last outing. That's what I took out of that outing."

Uehara entered a tied game in the top of the ninth inning and was credited with the win when the Red Sox scored in the bottom half.

"Second night in Baltimore was first time he's gone back to back all year so hopefully he's gaining some arm strength," manager John Farrell said. "A couple of days off seemed to be a little bit rejuvenated. Better finish to not only the fastball but to the split. Encouraging night from him as well."

Red Sox closer Koji Uehara not utilizing fastball this season
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Red Sox closer Koji Uehara has been throwing an unusual amount of offspeed pitches to start the season. Uehara has thrown fastballs on just 15 percent of his pitches this season, compared to 50 percent over the last three years, according to the Boston Herald.

Manager John Farrell isn't reading too much into it.

"He's going to go with what he feels," Farrell said. "Every 3 mph is about a foot distance in traveling to home plate. So there's a little bit different reaction time. But regardless of velocity there still needs to be the use of (the fastball) just to create separation between his fastball and his split."

Uehara is 1-1 so far this season with a 4.15 ERA and three saves in 4 1/3 innings.

Red Sox closer Koji Uehara can't hold lead in 10th, blows first save
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

The Red Sox rallied to hand closer Koji Uehara a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the 10th inning Saturday but the right hander squandered it to blow the save against the Orioles.

"He probably doesn't have the finish to his fastball as we've seen, so he's gone to his split a few times," manager John Farrell said to the Boston Herald. "He gets deep in the count where it's a little predictable to Lough."

Adam Jones tripled and scored on a sacrifice fly before David Lough won it with a walk-off homer for Uehara's first blown save of the season.

"Splitter that doesn't move,” Uehara said. "It stayed over the middle of the plate. I'm not looking at velocity at this point or any point in my career so it's no problem."

Red Sox closer Koji Uehara finishes off 7-5 win for third save
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox closer Koji Uehara finished off a 7-5 win Friday against the Orioles for his third save.

Uehara ran into a little trouble in the ninth inning, as he allowed runners to reach first and third base with one out. Both runners reached base via singles. 

However, Uehara was able to retire the last two batters in the ninth before a run crossed the plate. He had two strikeouts.

Uehara has two saves since Tuesday.
