Red Sox Fall to Nationals in Dice-K’s Return

Before the Celtics tip off tonight against the Miami Heat in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Boston sports fans were treated with a similarly unpredictable event: the return of Daisuke Matsuzaka to the major leagues after a year removed because of Tommy John surgery. He showed good stuff for the most part, but […]

Daniel Bard Unhappy in Triple-A

Aside from the hiring of Bobby Valentine, perhaps the most debated topic in this 2012 season for the Boston Red Sox has been finding a place for Daniel Bard. The former reliever excelled in the bullpen as the Red Sox set up man in each of the last two seasons, pitching 147.2 innings while striking […]

9th Inning Collapse Costs Red Sox Against Rays

Both teams struggled much of the time to put anything together, but in the end, a well-placed home run on a not-so-well-placed pitched in the final inning allowed the Tampa Bay Rays to defeat the Boston Red Sox 4-3. Boston might have had something going in the 1st, but Dustin Pedroia was called out and […]

Aviles, Saltalamacchia Homer in Red Sox Rubber-Match Win

In a typical start by Philadelphia ace Cliff Lee, teams that manage two runs count themselves lucky. The Boston Red Sox scored five against the dominating lefty Sunday afternoon, and they didn’t waste them. Mike Aviles and Jarrod Saltalamacchia both homered for the second straight day, and Josh Beckett held the Phillies to one run […]

Doubront Shines in 4-1 Victory, Pedroia Keeps Streaking

Buchholz, Red Sox End Losing Skid in Win Over Indians

On Friday night the Red Sox attempted to turn things around, as their most recent struggles have been highlighted by the controversy of Josh Beckett on and off the field.

Red Sox Lose in 17 Innings to Orioles

The Red Sox attempted to avoid being swept by the Baltimore Orioles as they sent Clay BuchholzĀ on the mound on Sunday.

Red Sox Fall to Orioles in 13 Innings

On a night when the Boston Celtics defeated the Atlanta Hawks in overtime, the Boston Red Sox were playing a bit of extra baseball in what ended up being their third consecutive loss.

Red Sox Continue Winning Ways in Pitchers’ Duel

It was very refreshing to see Boston get off to such a great road trip, and that hasn’t let up. Thanks to a 1-0 victory against the White Sox, that streak now stands at six. However, Chicago could have done better. The most important play of the game came in the first inning, with Chicago […]
