Sox Pound Blue Jays, Gain Ground in Wild Card Race

It was the kind of offensive display that any pitching staff would salivate over. The boys of summer needed a laugher in their favor for a change, and got it on Wednesday night, as the Boston Red Sox out-slugged the Toronto Blue Jays on their way to a 10-1 victory. While the Yankees managed to avoid […]

Beckett, Red Sox Drop Second Straight in the Bronx

So much for that thunderous roar back into the standings. While a sweep would have been the nail in the proverbial coffin for your 2010 Boston Red Sox, the best that this team can hope for at this point is a split of the series. Doesn’t it taste just as bitter? As Josh Beckett and the […]

Lester Dominates But Bats Go Silent in Seattle in 5-1 Loss

Who’d have thought Jon Lester v. David Pauley would have made for a Saturday night pitcher’s duel? While Lester’s home state and the confines of SafeCo Field have not exactly been kind to him in previous starts, he began a dominant roll in this one, retiring the first 16 batters he faced. He had struck […]

Red Sox 2010 Second Half Preview

With the 2010 Midsummer Classic in the books, after Joe Girardi screwed the American League out of homefield advantage in the World Series, it’s time to look ahead. The unofficial second half of the season will get underway for your Boston Red Sox Thursday night at Fenway Park, with the opener of a four-game series […]

Sox Drop Independence Day Game To Lowly O’s

Fans of fireworks on the Fourth of July were dissapointed this holiday. At Fenway Park at least. The Boston Red Sox managed only three hits on Independence Day this year, as they were shut down by Brian Matusz and the most-awful Baltimore Orioles 6-1 in Boston on Sunday in the oppressive afternoon heat. The Red Sox […]

Walking Wounded Sox Pull Out Win in San Francisco

It’s safe to say they needed this win. It’s been a tough interleague road trip out west for the Boston Red Sox, and they headed into Saturday’s game with the 2008 A.L. MVP Dustin Pedroia shelved for what seems to be indefinitely with a fractured left foot. Pedroia suffered the injury when he fouled a […]

Celtics Come Up Huge, Pull Even With Lakers in Finals

It certainly wasn’t pretty, but it was exciting. It was chippy. It was physical. It was hard-fought. It was a huge win for the Boston Celtics, who evened their best-of-seven NBA Finals series with the Los Angeles Lakers at two games a piece, with a 96-89 victory at TD Garden in Boston on Thursday night. […]

Ortiz, Red Sox Cap Off Impressive Month With Victory Over Royals

The Boston Red Sox finished off their month of May in suitable fashion. On New Hampshire Day at Fenway Park, the Red Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 8-1 to salvage a split of the series heading into tomorrow’s day off. After a much-needed sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays, the Sox came into this […]

Celtics Pound Orlando for 3-0 Series Lead, One Win Away From Finals

This game was over in the first quarter. This series was over and given a brilliant summation with just under 9 minutes in the first half, with an all-out hustle play by Rajon Rondo that would make Larry Bird proud, to dive and take the ball (and the series) away from Jason Williams and the […]

Red Sox Pushed To Extra Innings After Blowing Lead, Lose in 12 to Tigers

At the very least we can say that they are sticking to the theme of the weekend. After the Boston Bruins collapsed to complete one of the biggest choke-jobs in sports history on Friday, the Boston Red Sox entered Saturday night’s game hot off a solid 7-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers where they saw […]

Four Men and a Baby: Celtics Rout Cavs in Pivotal Game 5 to Take 3-2 Series Lead

Looks like Spike Lee could be getting his wish. In the midst of a third quarter the Boston Celtics dominated, on their way to a stunning 120-88 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena, the tension began visibly and audibly rising among the hometown fans of Cleveland. And this was a tension not […]

Rondo, Celtics Pull Even With Cavs in 97-87 Win

“M-V-P! M-V-P! M-V-P!” The chants rained down for a more-than-deserving Rajon Rondo on Sunday afternoon at TD Garden, as he hit both of his free throws to put the finishing touches on a performance that will go down as one of the best in Celtics postseason history. Already the undoubted MVP for the team up […]

Cavaliers Crush Celtics in Boston to Take 2-1 Series Lead

This one was over before the chalk had settled from Lebron’s pre-game ritual. This one was a game where the Celtics were out-hustled, out-muscled, out-willed and out-classed on their home parquet that lead to the team’s worst home playoff loss in franchise history. This one was a result that will almost certainly lead to many […]

Late Goal By Lucic Gives Bruins 2-0 Series Lead

You can’t help but acknowledge the irony. Amidst the celebration at TD Garden on Monday night, as the Boston Bruins took a commanding 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven semifinal series against the Philadelphia Flyers, The Standells’ “Love That Dirty Water” was blaring across the arena just like it would after any Bruins victory. But it […]
