nal day and give their verdicts on a bri
BOSTON -- Matt Shoemaker is due for some good fortune.The Angels right-hander is coming off a strong June that saw him run up a 2.14 ERA in six starts, good enough to place him in the running for mention for things like Pitcher of the Month.One problem -- he didnt win a game, as his team suffered through an 8-19 month that sent it spiraling into last place in the American league West.Matt is on an incredible run, manager Mike Scioscia said after his pitchers last outing.Incredible run. No results -- something Shoemaker hopes to turn around when he faces the Red Sox in Sundays series finale at Fenway Park.He can only hope his teammates, who scored 21 runs to even the three-game series on Saturday night, saved some for him on Sunday.Shoemaker will face a former Angel, journeyman right-hander Sean OSullivan, who will come up from Triple-A Pawtucket for the spot start.Its not that frustrating because its a long season and its the game of baseball, Shoemaker, who has allowed four earned runs and struck out 20 in 19 1/3 innings over his last three starts, said after the bullpen failed to hold his win last week -- in his second straight strong start against the Houston Astros.My job is to try to go out and put up zeros as much as I can. For the bullpen, its the same thing. Sometimes things dont go our way.Shoemaker, 7-10 last year after a 16-4 run in 2014, is 3-8 with a 4.12 ERA this season. In June, he was 0-3 as his ERA dropped from 5.85 to 4.12. He joined Pedro Martinez (New York Mets, 2006) as the only pitchers ever to go winless in a month with an ERA under 3.00 and with at least 45 strikeouts.He hasnt won since May 27.Shoemaker has been brilliant in two career games, one start, against the Red Sox, going 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA in 10 2/3 innings against Boston.Current Red Sox hitters are a combined 1-for-24 against Shoemaker, with both Xander Bogaerts and Dustin Pedroia coming in at 0-for-4.OSullivan was 1-0 with a 7.94 ERA in three games, two starts, with the Red Sox earlier this season. One of nine starters used by the club in 2016, he comes up on a Triple-A run that saw him go 4-0 with a 2.61 ERA in six starts.He got the nod over right-hander Aaron Wilkerson, the former Independent League pitcher who is 4-1 with a 2.20 ERA with Pawtucket -- as the Red Sox hit the official midway point with their 81st game.That was the recommendation (of the minor league people), manager John Farrell said Friday. Wilkerson, we recognize, has been throwing the ball well there. The recommendation was for Sean to come back up here and pitch on Sunday.OSullivan, out of options, was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on May 16, but he returned to Pawtucket after clearing waivers.Overall at Pawtucket, he is 6-2 with a 2.79 ERA in 11 starts this season.He was 5-2 with the Angels in 2009 and 2010.Now, he has to try to turn around what happened to his team, losers of seven of their last 11, on Saturday night. Dylan Bundy Jersey . The FA rejected Wilsheres appeal that the length of his punishment was "clearly excessive" and said Thursday his suspension begins with immediate effect. He will miss league matches against Chelsea on Monday and West Ham on Dec. Jim Palmer Jersey . Radwanska, making her debut in the Seoul tournament, hit eight aces in a match that lasted 1 hour, 4 minutes at Olympic Park tennis stadium. "It was definitely a very good match -- I was playing really good tennis," Radwanska said. . -- Gus Malzahn finally had his day in Fayetteville. Youth Orioles Jerseys . Hey!" The lower tier of the School End of Queens Park Rangers Loftus Road was packed solid with a very festive-sounding Chelsea choral section in this particular part of South Africa Road London, W12. Joey Rickard Jersey . The third-ranked Ivanovic, who won the event in 2008 and 10, served five aces and broke Wickmayer, also a former winner in 2009, five times. "The result looked easier than it really was," Ivanovic said.Ed Chamberlin will be joined by Jamie Carragher and Graeme Souness on a special edition of Monday Night Football at 6pm on Sky Sports 1 HD to look back on the 2015/16 season.
