3-Run 7th Inning Does Red Sox in; Trail Angels 2-0…

Wow – this really isn’t the way the Red Sox drew it up.  The Red Sox bats have disappeared and 1 inning has done in each of Jon Lester and Josh Beckett in the 1st 2 games of the ALDS against the Angels in Anaheim.  Not good. First the bats – the Red Sox managed [...]

Winning Recipe – Red Sox End Skid behind Lester & ‘Pen

Finally – the Red Sox winning recipe finally came back to fruition on Thursday night behind a solid outing by Jon Lester.  Lester proved that he was fine after getting hit with a line drive in last Friday night’s loss to the Yankees in New York.  Lester threw 84 pitches and came out of the [...]

Should we Start to Panic? Red Sox Drop 6th Straight Game

Should we start to panic in Beantown?  The Red Sox just dropped their 6th straight game – 12-0 to the Blue Jays.  Wakefield looked bad (5 ER on 7 hits and 2 walks in just 3 innings).  The bullpen did not fare much better – Fernando Cabrera, Manny Delcarmen, Hideki Okajima and back-up catcher Dusty [...]

Red Sox Rebound in Kansas City; Eyes Set on the Yankees in the Bronx

It’s about time – the bats finally came back to life and Josh Beckett worked hard to shut down the Royals and pick up his 16th win of the 2009 MLB schedule.  After falling behind 2-0 in the 4th inning, the Red Sox rallied for 6 runs in the 5th inning to take control of [...]

Greinke, Royals Pester Red Sox with 2nd Straight Loss in Kansas City…

This is getting old.  Zach Greinke and the Royals made it 2 in a row on Tuesday night with a 5-1 win over the Red Sox.  Ouch.  Any chance of winning the AL East is slowly slipping away as the Yankees defeated the Angels 6-5 in Anaheim.  The Red Sox now trail the Yankees by [...]

Dice-K Delivers Part Deux as Red Sox Sweep O’s; Yankees Back in Sight!

The Red Sox defeated the Orioles 9-3 on Sunday completing a 3-game weekend series sweep.  The Red Sox won 16 of 18 games against Batimore during the 2009 MLB schedule.  The Red Sox scored in each of the 1st 4 innings of the game to open up a 7-0 lead.  And Daisuke Matsuzaka did the [...]

Red Sox, Lester Cruise Past O’s Again

The Red Sox turned a back-and-forth close game into a blow out with 8 total runs in the 7th and 8th innings. At 88-59, the Red Sox trail the Yankees by 6 games in the AL East, but lead the Rangers by 7 games in the AL Wild Card race.

Buchholz, Bay Lead Red Sox to 3-1 Win Over O’s
