Felix Doubront continues his streak

by Bill Chuck on August 5, 2013

Felix Doubront has been Boston’s most consistent starter this season and that’s good.

I mention that he’s good because Clay Buchholz has been Boston most consistent starter on the DL this season and that’s not good.

Doubront pitched seven shutout innings as Boston topped Arizona, 4-0.

Doubront has not allowed more than three earned runs now in 15 consecutive starts (he has allowed four runs twice during the streak but those starts include unearned runs).

Doubront’s streak is the best for the Red Sox since Tim Wakefield went 17 straight in 1995, and it is less than half towards Roger Clemens team record, the best since 1916.
