I’m still finding it hard to believe that the Red Sox are out of the playoffs. The way it ended on Sunday afternoon was just shocking. The Angels rallied for 5 runs in the final innings, including 3 runs off of closer Jonathan Papelbon in the 9th to pull off the improbably 7-6 win […]
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 […]
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.
Ouch… Looks like the Rays have officially given up. The Red Sox swept the Rays on Sunday (3-1; 4-0), sending the Rays to their 11th straight defeat. The Rays now trail the Yankees by 19.5 games in the AL East race and the Red Sox by 12.5 games in the AL Wild Card race. […]
That loud noise you heard Tuesday night in Tampa was a huge collective sigh of relief as the Red Sox beat the Rays 8-4 in Tampa for only their 2nd win there this season. It wasn’t easy. Leading 7-2 heading to the bottom of the 8th inning, the usually reliable Hideki Okajima didn’t retire […]
For the 2nd time this year, Clay Buchholz was staked to a big lead and couldn’t complete the requisite 5 innings pitched to qualify for the win. In Monday night’s 12-8 win over the White Sox, the Red Sox rallied to take a 9-4 lead after 4 innings of play. But Buchholz got into […]
What a disappointing Sunday night baseball game – the pitcher’s duel between Beckett & Sabathia turned into a slugfest won by the Yankees 8-4. The Yankees took 2 of 3 from the Red Sox over the weekend at Fenway Park and dropped the 2nd place Red Sox 7 1/2 games back in the AL […]
Crazier things have happened, but believe it or not, the 20-11 Yankees win over the Red Sox on Friday night at Fenway Park wasn’t as much of a blow out as one might think. While the Yankees blasted Brad Penny and 4 Red Sox relievers for 20 runs (19 earned) on 23 hits and […]
Kevin Youkilis will be back in the Red Sox lineup against the Blue Jays on Tuesday night in Toronto. Youkilis decided to serve the 5 game suspension handed down for charging the mound against Rick Porcello last week at Fenway Park after Porcello plunked Youkilis early in the game. It was the 2nd night […]
All in all, it was a successful series for the Red Sox – taking 3 of 4 games from the AL Central-leading Detroit Tigers at Fenway Park. After a disastrous end to their 9 game road trip on Sunday – 6 straight losses to the Yankees and Rays, winning more than losing this week […]
