Sputtering Red Sox Come Out Flat Against Jays, Lose Again

For the second straight night, the Red Sox faltered North of the border, dropping the series finale to the Blue Jays 7-4. Ricky Romero finally managed to beat Boston, surrendering 3 runs in 6.2 innings. All of those runs came late for the Red Sox as Romero had batters guessing for most of the night. […]

Sox Offense Backs Lester For Matinee Victory

With several stars of the Boston lineup battered and bruised, it took a complete team effort to bounce back against the Royals on Sunday. The Red Sox’ patchwork lineup was able to do just that, cracking 10 hits and 2 home runs in a 6-1 victory over Kansas City. The win moved ace Jon Lester […]

Miller Shines In Spot Start Victory Over Royals

Apparently the 19-day layoff between starts didn’t faze Andrew Miller too much. Squeezed into the rotation for game two against Kansas City, Miller pitched 5.1 strong innings en route to a 7-1 victory. Kept to an 85-pitch count, the young lefty gave up just 1 run on 3 hits for win no. 5 of 2011.

Reddick Helps Beat Yankees in Walk-Off Thriller; Sox Take Over 1st in AL East

Criticize the marathon games that come from baseball’s best rivalry if you will, but boy do the Sox and Yankees deliver some cardiac action. Sunday was pitted as a mismatch between resurgent ace Josh Beckett and the surprising but weaker Freddy Garcia. What it turned into was a late-inning comeback for the regular season ages […]

Red Sox Slam Sabathia in 10-4 Win

If you’ve only watched New York ace CC Sabathia pitch against Boston this season, you might be wondering what all the fuss is about. For the fourth time in as many starts against the Red Sox, the hefty lefty was disastrous, surrendering 7 runs in a 10-4 defeat. What started as an early duel turned sour for […]

Buchholz Reportedly Has Stress Fracture, Likely Out For Season

Erik Bedard, your role with the 2011 Boston Red Sox might have just grown a bit. Less than 24 hours after the Sox inked a deal to trade for the former Baltimore ace and Seattle staffer, news out of Clay Buchholz camp is looking grim. On the disabled list with a “back” injury since June […]

Red Sox Rally Late to Down White Sox 5-3 on Deadline Day

No matter his performance, the Red Sox have had a penchant for winning with Andrew Miller on the mound. The team entered Sunday 6-1 in Miller’s first 7 starts, and a late rally stretched that to 7-1 as Boston squeaked past Chicago 5-3. It was a gutsy performance for Miller, who gave up a season […]

Red Sox Falter, Lose To Royals In 14-Inning Marathon

Over the course of a 162-game season, there’s a game or two in the mix where it feels like no matter what the Red Sox do, they simply come up short. Last night against the Royals fell right into that category, as the Red Sox stranded the winning run in scoring position in four of […]

Andrew Miller Looking to Find Comfort Zone in Boston

The Red Sox sure have perfected the whole “easing young starting pitchers in” routine. I like to call them the Quadruple-A starts. Try your luck at the gutter dwellers of the major leagues before testing out Sunday night baseball in the Bronx. If you can keep Robert Andino guessing in the box, maybe you’re ready […]
