Koji Uehara News Archive
Uehara pitched a perfect 10th inning with two strikeouts to record his first save of the season and preserve the Red Sox 3-2 victory over the Twins on Friday.
Uehara struck out all three batters he faced in Thursday's 5-3 loss to Minnesota.
Though Uehara was being considered for the closer's role in the wake of Joel Hanrahan's forearm injury, he will continue pitching in the eighth inning for now, Jim Duquette of MLB Network Radio reports.
Uehara might end up closing for the Red Sox if Joel Hanrahan is sidelined with his forearm injury, the Boston Herald speculates.
