Sox Sweep Tigers, Wakefield Gets 7th Win

The Red Sox pulled out the brooms Thursday afternoon, wiping away the Tigers for the third straight game, winning the finale 6-3. Tim Wakefield recovered from a rough second inning (three runs allowed) to last 6.2 innings with three strikeouts. The Sox piled all of their six runs in the third inning after facing a […]

Dice-K Earns First Win in 2009, Beats Tigers

Daisuke Matsuzaka won 18 games in 2008, but didn’t win a game during the first two months of the 2009 season. In his first June start Tuesday night against the Tigers, Dice-K earned his first win of the season, helping Terry Francona earn his 500th as a member of the Red Sox. Francona is just […]

Sox Bench Ortiz, Beat Twins

First allow me to thank all of our service men and women who have died in combat while protecting our country. Without all of their sacrifices, there’s a chance this blog (or any other for that matter) would not exist. Now, to the Sox game… For seemingly the first time all season, the front of […]

Bay Home Run Helps Sox Sweep of Blue Jays

The Red Sox entered Tuesday night losers of four of their last six games, and 3.5 games behind the first place Blue Jays. Fortunately, the Red Sox would have the chance to make up ground in the division, as the Blue Jays came to town for a three-game set. By the time they left town, the […]

David Ortiz Homers to End Drought, Sox Win

In what seemed like an eternity, over the course of 149 long at bats, David Ortiz finally cracked the big one in at bat #150. In the fifth inning Wednesday night against Toronto starter Brett Cecil, Ortiz slammed a deep blast to the hardest part of the park to hit a home run – straightaway […]

Home Runs Power Sox over Mariners

With David Ortiz sitting out for the second straight game while he “rests,” the Red Sox needed some pop from other parts of the lineup (though Ortiz has provided none so far, anyway). They found it in a likely source: Jason Bay, who finished 1-4 with a two-run HR in the second inning. In the […]

David Ortiz Benched, Sox Lose to Mariners

David Ortiz has now been benched, at least for a couple days. But, who could blame Terry Francona? Papi was coming off a horrible game that has punctuated his season, going 0-7 with three strikeouts and 12 men left on base Thursday night against the Angels. He sat Friday night and watched his teammates play […]

Angels Bounce Back, Beat Sox 8-4

The Red Sox got off to a fast start off minor league journeyman Matt Palmer, scoring two runs in each of the first two innings to lead 4-0. Jason Bay slammed his 10th HR, a two-run shot, in the first inning. Nick Green doubled home a run in the second and Jacoby Ellsbury had an RBI […]

Sox Rough Up Shields, Defeat Rays 7-3

Tampa Bay’s James Shields just can’t pitch at Fenway Park. Coming into Friday’s game, Shields had a career record of 0-4 at Fenway with a 9.56 ERA. The story was more of the same on Friday night as Shields was once again dominated by the Sox offense. Shields pitched five shutout innings and then he […]

Sox Explode for 12 Runs in Sixth Inning, Beat Indians 13-3

Judging by the box score, you never would have guessed that the Sox were losing this game at any point in the evening. Early rainfall threatened the final game of the Sox and Indians two game series, but the weather subsided and the Sox bats came alive. Playing without Kevin Youkilis (back), David Ortiz (neck), […]

Sox Win 7-3, Improve to 5-0 Against Yankees

If the Tampa Bay Rays own the Red Sox, then I think it’s safe to say the Red Sox own the New York Yankees, no matter where they play. The Red Sox improved to 5-0 against the Bronx Bombers this season, including to 2-0 at the new Yankee Stadium, after a 7-3 win. Josh Beckett […]

Sox Victorious in First Game at New Yankee Stadium

Not even mother nature could keep the Sox-Yankees rivalry from starting a new chapter. A rain delay of over two hours chased away most of the crowd at Yankee Stadium, but those who left missed out on a real nail-biter that came down to the very last pitch. Jon Lester tied a career high with […]

Bay Homers to Lead Sox to 11th Straight Win

The Red Sox entered Monday night’s game with the Indians riding a 10-game winning streak thanks in large part to clutch hitting. But, through eight innings, the Red Sox were held scoreless by 2008 Cy Young Award Winner Cliff Lee. Thankfully, Tim Wakefeld kept the Sox in the game by dominating the Indians. He allowed no runs on […]

Sox Out-Slug Yankees 16-11

The last two Saturdays have not been very kind to New York Yankees pitching. On Saturday, April 18, the Yankees lost to the Cleveland Indians 22-4. One week later, it was a similar story, as the Yankees allowed 16 runs and gave up a 6-0 lead to the Red Sox. The Sox capitalized on weak […]

Bay, Youkilis Power Sox in Win Over Yankees

It was the first of 19 match-ups in the best rivalry in baseball (and perhaps all of sports), and it’s typical that dramatic moments take place between each team. Bucky Dent, Aaron Boone, David Ortiz (multiple times), Johnny Damon…….and Jason Bay? OK, this was not nearly as big a moment, but Jason Bay catapulted himself […]
