Uehara picked up the save in Tuesday night's win over the Blue Jays. It was the third consecutive day the closer has pitched and picked up a save, and the fourth time he's pitched in the last five days.
Red Sox pitching coach Carl Willis said "it was borderline obvious" that Rodriguez was tipping his pitches when throwing from the stretch against the Orioles last week, the Providence Journal reports. "He'd been so good out of the windup. Going back and looking at the pitches he executed from the stretch, they were still quality pitches. It's safe to say that there's a good likelihood that could have had something to do with it," said Willis.
De Aza extended his hitting streak to five games, going 3-for-4 with a triple in Monday night's win over Toronto. He's gone 9-of-19 with five extra-base hits and six RBI in five games while filling in at left field for Hanley Ramirez (hand).
