Beckett Leads 5th Straight Win, Tim Wakefield Honored at Fenway

On a rainy Tuesday afternoon which featured the honoring of Tim Wakefield, the Red Sox swept away the Seattle Mariners in the short two-games series with a 5-0 win, led by a dominate rebound start from Josh Beckett. David Ortiz opened up the scoring in the third when he homered deep to right field off […]

Jon Lester Finishes Mariners in 6-1 Red Sox Win

It was the type of outing it seemed like Jon Lester was due for. The Seattle Mariners brought their offensively challenged lineup to face the Sox ace, and he effectively shut them down in an impressive complete game win. Jason Vargas took the mound for Seattle to face the red-hot Red Sox, who were coming […]

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. Allowing runs in three of the first four innings, Lackey rebounded and the Red Sox bats supported him with three home runs hit off of Seattle rookie starter Blake Beaven, […]

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 […]

Beckett’s Scoreless Streak Ends At 14 IP, Red Sox Defeat Mariners 3-1

After pitching 14 innings of scoreless ball, all it took was one swing of the bat for Josh Beckett to look human again. The damage was done by first baseman Mike Carp, who homered in the top of the 7th on Saturday night, in a game eventually won by the Red Sox 3-1. Seventh Inning […]

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 […]

Crawford’s Walk-Off Single Helps Red Sox Avoid Sweep

Well it’s official, the Red Sox having a winning record (in the month of May). After a sub-par first month of the season, the Red Sox have gotten off on the right foot to start May. On Sunday afternoon, Carl Crawford hit the walk-off single to score Jed Lowrie from third base to give Boston […]

Impotent Sox Do Nothing Against Mariners

This is starting to get ridiculous again. The Red Sox stifled themselves and couldn’t get anything going in the 2-0 loss to Seattle. Things started off with a hint of that kind of night, when Ichiro Suzuki started the game by stealing second. John Lackey then threw the ball clear into center on a pickoff […]

A.L. West Fantasy Preview

With all due respect to the A.L. West, most of the offense you want is on Texas. Now, don’t take that as a sign that talent isn’t elsewhere in the division. Oakland seems to have the market cornered on the best starting pitching, but don’t go there for first choice offense. The Angels have both […]

Buchholz Bounces Back As Sox Top Mariners 5-1

Coming off the shortest outing of his career, lasting just one inning against the Oakland A’s, Clay Buchholz was looking for a team like the Mariners to change his luck. With cleanup hitter Franklin Gutierrez hitting just .247/.308/.367 for an OPS under .700, the Mariners’ lineup was just what the doctor ordered. Buchholz tossed seven […]

Lowrie, Ortiz Power Red Sox Past Mariners

After trying years in 2008 and 2009 and a rough start to the 2010 season, David Ortiz  faced many doubts from critics, fans, and “experts” who said he was done. If by done you mean David Ortiz: New Energy (D.O.N.E.), then you were absolutely correct. Most critics couldn’t have been more wrong, as Big Papi […]

Lester Strikes Out 12 in Efficient Victory in Seattle

The phrase “one bad inning” has often been associated with Red Sox starter Jon Lester. On Monday night at Safeco Field it would as well, but the one bad inning would belong to the Seattle Mariners pitcher FACING Lester, Doug Fister. Fister gave up four of his six hits and three of his five earned […]

Lackey, Scutaro Carry Red Sox Over Mariners

All the talk at Fenway Park on Monday night was about the possible return of Johnny Damon and all the rain that continued to fall in the Boston area. Despite the distractions, the Red Sox and Mariners did indeed start their three-game series at Fenway on Monday, with the inconsistent John Lackey squaring off against […]
