BOSTON -- Matt Shoemaker is due for some good fortune. Bryan Rust Jersey .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. Rob Brown Jersey . "We have always prided ourselves on the way we play defence. Having two big pieces back is going to be a key for us moving forward for years to come," said Knighthawks head coach Mike Hasen. Ed Olczyk Jersey . Supported by three-run homers from Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos, the young right-hander went seven strong innings in the Washington Nationals 8-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. https:///...jersey-penguins.html . LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St. LAKE LOUIS, Alberta -- Slovenias Ilka Stuhec completed a Lake Louise downhill sweep Saturday.Coming off her first World Cup victory Friday, Stuhec finished in 1 minute, 24.95 seconds on the course shortened because of deteriorating visibility.Defending overall World Cup cchampion Laura Gut of Switerland was second in 1:25. Marc-Andre Fleury Jersey. 06, followed by Edit Miklos of Hungary in 1:25.38.A super-G is set for Sunday. ' ' '
