Koji Uehara secures 2nd save of the new season

Boston Red Sox stopper Koji Uehara used some strong pitching on Wednesday to close things out for his second save of the season.

David Ortiz had just put the Red Sox ahead with a three-run home run in the eighth inning that turned a deficit into a 4-2 lead over the Texas Rangers, and Uehara needed just 11 pitches to wrap things up with a perfect inning.

“I was told I’d be going to the mound if we took the lead, and I had been playing catch,” Uehara said. “I had the perfect amount of time to get ready.”

His ERA after five appearances remains 0.00.

Since allowing a run on Sept. 17 last season, Uehara has made 10 consecutive scoreless appearances, and is as steady as ever.

The Red Sox had started the season 3-5 and haven’t been able to get things going. But this was a mood-changing victory ahead of a series at New York against the rival Yankees.
