White Sox Slaughter Byrd, Red Sox 12-2

Coming off a surprisingly strong start in a win against the Blue Jays, recently re-signed starter Paul Byrd was looking to continue to his run of good pitching against the White Sox Friday night. After one scoreless inning, things looked good. In the second inning, former Red Sox 1B/OF Mark Kotsay launched a two-run shot […]

Red Sox Advance to ALCS

In typical playoff fashion, a close game all the way until the end. Jed Lowrie’s single to short right field brought in Jason Bay to win the game in the bottom of the ninth. Bay got on base after a double to right field. Torii Hunter broke the game open in the top of the […]

Red Sox Look for September Surge
