Jon Lester Dominant, But A’s Walk Off Against Red Sox in the 9th

The Oakland Athletics defeated the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night 3-2 after Alfredo Aceves could not close out the bottom of the ninth. Last night, the A’s and Red Sox found themselves locked in a pitcher’s duel behind starters Bartolo Colon and Jon Lester. There was minimal offense to speak of throughout the first […]

Should Franklin Morales Remain in a Fully Healthy Red Sox Rotation?

On Thursday night the Seattle Mariners and Boston Red Sox open a four-game series out west as star pitcher Felix Hernandez goes for the M’s. Opposing him will be a pitcher who has effectively come out of nowhere to make starts for the injured Sox rotation, 26-year old Franklin Morales. Boston acquired Morales from Colorado […]

Red Sox Offense Powers Past Blue Jays

The Red Sox defeated the Blue Jays 10-4 in a matinee game on Wednesday. The Sox were led by a strong pitching performance from Jon Lester, and an explosion of offense early in the game. Similar to last night’s game, Brett Lawrie led off with a double to left field. Colby Rasmus followed with a […]

Red Sox Offense Fails to Score for Jon Lester Again

Jon Lester certainly wasn’t thrilled with his performance as the Red Sox fell to the visiting Atlanta Braves 4-1 at Fenway Park on a Friday night where the team managed just three hits. That was primarily due to a strong start by Jair Jurrjens, but Lester seems to be growing accustomed to surprisingly average performances this season.

Lester Strong, Red Sox edge Cubs 4-3

The Red Sox defeated the Cubs 4-3 in the second game of a three-game weekend series at Wrigley Field.

In the […]

Red Sox Late Rally Falls Short Against Cubs at Wrigley

The Red Sox nearly pulled off an impressive ninth inning comeback after doing little offensively in their 3-0 loss on Friday afternoon in Chicago.

Lester Solid, but Red Sox Swept By Nationals

The Washington Nationals completed the sweep of the Boston Red Sox on Sunday afternoon in Boston.

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 […]

Red Sox Hit 3 Home Runs, Beat Tigers Again

Shhhhh. While the Celtics are busy in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Red Sox have quietly moved two games above .500 for the first time this season and are now just 2.5 games out of first place. How, you ask? Well, the Sox stuck to a formula that has them rolling lately (they have now […]

Emptying the Tank: Big 4, Lester, Theo, Thomas, Welker, Schilling, Media

I haven’t written a column in a while, so I figured I would chime in on a bunch of sports topics floating around the airwaves, newspapers and Twittersphere the past month. So let’s start with the… Celtics • Unfortunately, this team has more experience and guts than talent and playmakers to truly go the distance. […]

Red Sox Launch 4 Home Runs, Top Phillies 7-5

After watching Jonathan Papelbon close out the Red Sox on Friday and do his signature poses in the process, there’s no way the Sox could let that happen again on Saturday. So, the offense took over, clubbing four home runs to back Jon Lester, who despite a shaky outing, managed to earn the win in […]
