Finally – That Was a Big Sigh of Relief You Heard @ Fenway Park on Monday Night

FINALLY!  The losing streak is over, as the Red Sox defeated the Tigers 6-5 at Fenway Park on Monday night.  WHHEEEWWWWWWW!

Ouch – Yankees Rock Smoltz’s World in 13-6 Loss in the Big Apple

Red Sox Must Re-Bound From Devastating Trip to Tampa

The team that gets the big, clutch hits will runners on base, usually wins, and that’s exactly what happened in the Red Sox 6-4 loss to the Rays on Wednesday night.  Brad Penny served up 2-run home runs to Carlos Pena in the 2nd inning and Carl Crawford in the 3rd inning, and a solo [...]
