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.

Red Sox Have Mental Edge Over Angels; Scioscia, Fuentes & Co. Cry Babies…

Wah, wah, wah… That’s the noise you heard coming from the Angels dugout after the Red Sox rallied for a 3rd time to win 9-8 in the 9th inning at Fenway Park.  Gimme a break – don’t put your team in a position to lose, and then you don’t have to bitch about “bad umpiring”. [...]

Daisuke Magical as Red Sox Continue to Roll…

I didn’t see this one coming – 6 scoreless innings from Dasiuke Matsuzaka as he pitched into the 7th inning – – unbelievable!!!  If Matsuzaka is truly healthy and really has his stuff figured out, the Red Sox could be ready to roll right into the Fall Classic in October.  I am giddy! Loved the [...]

Bullpen Fails, Red Sox Fall to Rays 8-5

For the 2nd straight night, the Red Sox bullpen got into trouble, and this time, Jonathan Papelbon couldn’t do anything to clean up the mess.  Ramon Ramirez and Manny Delcarmen failed miserably in the bottom of the 8th inning on Wednesday night, combining to retire only 1 of the 5 batters that they faced.  Ramirez [...]

Clay Buchholz & Jose Contreras Awful in Red Sox 12-8 Pounding on Monday Night @ Fenway Park

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 trouble [...]

Suprise, Surprise – - Red Sox Beat Halladay, Take Back AL Wild Card Lead

Just when everyone was getting ready to count out the Red Sox, Clay Buchholz outduels Roy Halladay 6-1, and the Red Sox take back the AL Wild Card lead over the Texas Rangers by a game.  The Red Sox roughed up Halladay for 5 runs on 8 hits and 2 walks in just 5 innings [...]

Road Woes Continue for Red Sox as Rangers Take Over AL Wild Card Lead

Winning Friday night’s game with a 6-run 9th inning against Rangers closer Frankie Francisco proved even more important as the Red Sox dropped the final 2 games in Arlington.  The Red Sox lost Sunday’s game 4-3 and fell a 1/2 game behind the Rangers for the AL wild card lead.  This frustrating season feels more [...]

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! For a short while there, it looked like Manny Delcarmen was going to be the latest scapegoat for a Red Sox loss.  Delcarmen had replaced starter Brad Penny in the top of the 7th [...]

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 [...]

Red Sox Begin 9-Game Road Trip with 6-5 Win Over O’s
