  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Fans seven in win

    Pivetta (10-11) yielded three runs on seven hits and two walks over five innings Sunday, striking out seven and earning a win over the Royals.

    Pivetta gave up a run in each of the first two innings and eventually served up a solo shot to Salvador Perez in the fifth frame. The 29-year-old righty was 0-2 with a 4.50 over his previous five outings since his last victory Aug. 16. He's now sporting a 4.35 ERA with a 160:63 K:BB across 30 starts this season.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Allows three homers in no-decision

    Pivetta did not factor into the decision Tuesday's extra-inning loss against the Yankees, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks over 5.1 innings. He struck out five.

    Pivetta threw four clean innings but was damaged by the home run. He allowed a two-run shot off the bat of Marwin Gonzalez in the third and a solo homer from Aaron Judge in the sixth before he was pulled with one out and two runners on base. Pivetta has been inconsistent this season, as he has surrendered three or more runs in 13 of his 29 starts, including five starts of five or more runs. However, he still owns a manageable 4.29 ERA through 160.2 innings.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Pitches well in loss

    Pivetta (9-11) took the loss Wednesday, allowing one run on two hits and three walks over five innings against Tampa Bay. He struck out three.

    Pivetta allowed two doubles -- one from Francisco Mejia and the other from Taylor Walls -- in addition to an RBI single from Walls with one out in the fifth. The righty has pitched six innings or more just twice in his last 12 starts. Pivetta's 4.29 ERA in 2022 isn't anything special but represents a career best in six major-league seasons.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Good to go Wednesday

    Pivetta (calf) will start Wednesday's game against the Rays at Tropicana Field, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

    Pivetta exited his most recent outing Friday with a left calf contusion, but he won't be forced to miss a turn through the rotation after he checked out fine following his between-starts throwing session. The right-hander will carry a 9-10 record, 4.37 ERA and 1.33 WHIP over 150.1 innings into his 28th start of the season Wednesday.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Likely to make next start

    Pivetta (calf) will likely be able to make his next start, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Pivetta exited Friday's matchup with a left calf contusion and was limping heavily after the game, but it doesn't appear as though he'll be forced to spend time on the injured list. The right-hander will be monitored over the coming days, but manager Alex Cora believes he will make his next scheduled start on the road against Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Exits with apparent injury

    Pivetta exited Friday's start against the Rangers after the third inning due to an apparent lower body injury, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

    Pivetta fielded a grounder to make the second out in the top of the third inning and was able to remain on the mound to finish the frame, but he limped off the field and was ultimately replaced to begin the fourth. Prior to his departure, he allowed a run on four hits and two walks while striking out two in three innings. The extent of his injury isn't yet known, and it's unclear whether he'll be able to make his next start.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Diagnosed with left calf contusion

    Pivetta was removed from Friday's game against the Rangers due to a left calf contusion, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Pivetta sustained his injury while fielding a grounder in the top of the third inning Friday, and he was replaced to begin the fourth frame. The right-hander will presumably be monitored further before the Red Sox determine his status for his next start. If Pivetta is cleared to pitch, he tentatively lines up to start on the road against Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Tagged for five runs

    Pivetta (9-10) allowed five runs on eight hits and three walks over five innings Sunday, striking out four and taking a loss against the Rays.

    Pivetta never found a groove Sunday as he coughed up five runs, matching the total from his previous three starts combined. He was taken deep twice by Isaac Paredes, accounting for three of those runs. The 29-year-old righty saw his season ERA climb to 4.40 with a 143:54 K:BB through 26 starts. Pivetta is lined up to face the Rangers at home next week.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Strikes out nine Sunday

    Pivetta allowed two runs on six hits, a walk and a hit batsman while striking out nine over 5.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Orioles on Sunday.

    Both runs against Pivetta came in the first inning. He fell one out short of his third straight quality start, though he also left in line for the loss before Franchy Cordero tied the game at 2-2 in the eighth inning. Pivetta has pitched to a 4.24 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 139:51 K:BB through 142.1 innings through 25 starts this year. The right-hander is projected for a home start versus the Rays next weekend.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Throws seven scoreless innings

    Pivetta (9-9) earned the win Tuesday, allowing one hit and three walks over seven scoreless innings against Pittsburgh. He struck out six.

    Pivetta cruised through the Pittsburgh lineup Tuesday, allowing just four runners on base in seven innings of work. This marks the first time the veteran righty has not allowed a run since June 4, as he brought his ERA down to 4.28 on the season. He tentatively lines up to face the Orioles in Baltimore this weekend.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Takes loss despite solid effort

    Pivetta (8-9) took the loss Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks over six innings in a 8-4 loss against Atlanta. He struck out five.

    Aside from a two-out, three-run homer from the struggling Marcell Ozuna, Pivetta held Atlanta in check all night. However, his offense couldn't keep him in the game as he earned his ninth loss of the campaign. Across his last four starts (21.2 innings), Pivetta has allowed 28 hits, 11 runs and eight walks, but he does have 20 strikeouts during that stretch. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday's matchup in Pittsburgh.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Permits three runs in no-decision

    Pivetta didn't factor into the decision during Thursday's 7-3 loss to Kansas City, allowing three runs on seven hits and one walk with five strikeouts in five innings.

    Pivetta was given a two-run lead before he took the mound but gave it right back by surrendering two of his own on two hits in the bottom of the inning while allowing another run on three baserunners in the fifth. Aside from a one-run outing July 25, the 29-year-old has allowed at least three runs in each of his last six starts and has seen his ERA balloon from 3.23 to 4.51 as a result. In addition to 4.51 ERA, Pivetta carries a 1.33 WHIP with 119 strikeouts in 123.2 innings into his next start, which is scheduled to come midweek against Atlanta.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Takes loss in ineffective outing

    Pivetta (8-8) took the loss against Milwaukee on Saturday, allowing four runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out four batters over five innings.

    Pivetta tied a season-worst mark by yielding nine hits in the contest, and he allowed multiple baserunners in each of his five frames. Five of the knocks against him went for extra bases and two left the park, marking the third time in his past four appearances that the right-hander has surrendered multiple homers. Pivetta carried a 3.23 ERA through his first 16 starts, but that number has ballooned to 4.47 with multiple blow-ups over his past five outings.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Yields one run in no-decision

    Pivetta allowed one run on seven hits and three walks over 5.2 innings during Monday's win over Cleveland. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.

    Pivetta tossed four shutout frames before giving up an RBI single to Jose Ramirez in the fifth. While he failed to get back in the win column, it was a strong outing for the 29-year-old after he'd been tagged with 20 runs over his previous three starts. Pivetta lowered his season ERA to 4.35 alongside a 110:42 K:BB through 20 appearances. He's projected to face the Brewers at home this weekend.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Continues to struggle

    Pivetta (8-7) took the loss against the Yankees on Saturday, allowing seven runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out four over 4.1 innings.

    Pivetta gave up four runs in a brutal first inning before keeping New York off the scoreboard in the following three frames. The Yankees got to him again in the fifth, however, and the right-hander was ultimately charged with seven total runs. After compiling a respectable 3.23 ERA through his first 16 starts, Pivetta has given up 20 earned runs over 13.1 frames across his past three outings, pushing his season ERA up to 4.50. He'll look for a much-needed reset over the All-Star break.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Hit hard again

    Pivetta didn't factor into the decision during Sunday's 11-6 win over the Yankees, allowing six runs on eight hits and two walks with five strikeouts in 3.1 innings.

    Pivetta struggled early -- surrendering two runs in each of the first three innings -- and departed after putting two runners on in the fourth. Boston rallied to score the game's final nine runs and erase the 29-year-old from the ledger; however, Pivetta's now permitted 13 runs combined in his last two starts across nine innings, causing his ERA to inflate nearly a full run from 3.23 to 4.08. He's slated for a rematch against New York next weekend.

  • Red Sox's Nick Pivetta: Lit up for seven runs

    Pivetta (8-6) gave up seven earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out four over 5.2 innings to take the loss in an 8-4 defeat to the Rays on Tuesday.

    Pivetta had been pitching well lately, but the Rays tagged him for a couple of big innings and he took his sixth loss of the season. Pivetta gave up a bases-loaded double off the bat of Kevin Kiermaier in the first and then couldn't get out of the sixth as the Rays picked him apart with hits. The 29-year-old right-hander is in the midst of being surprisingly effective this year with numbers well below his career 4.88 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. The worry is perhaps that the seven-run outing could mark the beginning of his regression toward career averages. Look for him to make his next start against the Yankees on Sunday.
