Kinsler and Hamilton Each Drive in Three as Rangers Crush Red Sox

If the Red Sox and Rangers face each other in the playoffs, the scorekeepers had best prepare: there will be runs, and lots of them. Sunday afternoon at Fenway was no exception.

Pawtucket Claims Division Title for First Time Since 2003

Boston Bats Explode in 12-7 Victory

Thanks in no small part to an eight-run 4th innings, the Boston Red Sox obliterated Texas pitching en route to a 12-7 win at Fenway Park. In the early going, it looked like another tough night for Erik Bedard. Adrian Gonzalez did make an unassisted line-out double play with runners at the corners in the […]

Kevin Youkilis and Biz Markie Team Up for Commercial

Biz Markie has done it all. He’s made a hit single. He’s been a featured artist on a song by my favorite childhood band, The Aquabats! He even has a regular segment on Yo Gabba Gabba. Oh, and now he’s dressed as Ben Franklin and played the piano with Kevin Youkilis. That’s basically my entire […]

Sore Back Sends Youkilis to DL; Lavarnway To Make MLB Debut

The Red Sox have been placed third baseman Kevin Youkilis to the 15-day disabled list thanks to a sore back he’s been suffering from.

Price Silences Red Sox as Rays Take Rubber Match

One shudders to think how good the Tampa Bay Rays might be if they ever built an offense as good as their starting pitching. The Red Sox got a taste of that scenario Wednesday afternoon at Fenway. David Price pitched eight innings of three-hit baseball, and the Rays homered twice off John Lackey to beat […]

Lester Dominates, Ellsbury Homers to Give Red Sox Game 1 Victory in Rays Doubleheader

The Red Sox only hit against Rays starter James Shields in one inning Tuesday afternoon at Fenway, but sometimes one inning is all it takes.

Wakefield’s 200th Win Still on Hold as Sox Drop Seattle Series

It’s getting tougher to know what the Boston Red Sox will do during the rest of the season. Sunday’s season finale in Seattle saw a 5-3 loss to the Mariners, despite Tim Wakefield’s economical pitch count and complete game effort. Wakefield struggled at times, and the offense wasn’t there to back him up against the […]

Home Runs Support Lackey, Red Sox Win in Seattle

It certainly wasn’t a pretty outing by any means, but John Lackey worked hard and won his sixth consecutive decision on Friday night in Seattle.

Red Sox Rally to Beat the Indians 3-2 in Walk-Off Fashion

Bottom of the Ninth With back to back singles from Jason Varitek and Josh Reddick in the bottom of the ninth, Jacoby Ellsbury stepped to the plate with a chance to give the Red Sox a walk-off victory against the Cleveland Indians, a team the Red Sox have struggled with all season.

Lester Throws Gem, Boston Scores 10 to Beat Chicago

No Youkilis, No Problem: Sox Stomp Royals 13-9

Pedroia Continues to Rake It was a quick turnaround after the last out was recorded at 2:00 am Tuesday morning, but the Red Sox did not have a hangover. Although the Royals got to a struggling Andrew Miller, the Sox pounded 16 hits and managed 13 runs to beat the Royals 13-9. The offense was […]

Sox Sweep Lowly Mariners in Slug-fest Finale

Seattle was staring down their worst losing streak ever in Sunday’s series finale, but Boston was prepared to make it happen 12-8, despite Seattle’s best efforts. The Ms didn’t waste any time, either. After a hit-by-pitch, Miguel Olivo homered deep to left to put Seattle on the board 2-0. They nearly did more damage, but […]

Lackey Continues to Rebound in 7-4 Win Against Seattle

They’re hardly an intimidating opposing lineup, especially with perennial all-star Ichiro Suzuki having a sub-par season, and yet John Lackey has to feel good about his game against the Seattle Mariners on Friday night. He pitched seven innings allowing just one run and no walks, while out-pitching one of the best pitchers in baseball in […]
