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 […]
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 […]
It wasn’t perfect, but Daisuke surely ended his 2009 regular season on a high note in Friday night’s 6-2 win over the Indians at Fenway Park. Matsuzaka pitched 6 solid innings, giving up just 2 ER on 5 hits and 3 walks. Matsuzaka struck out 7 batters and has lowered his ERA under 6.00 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Clay Buchholz made sure that the Red Sox wouldn’t lose the series to the Royals in Kansas City. Buchholz pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings, giving up just 5 hits along the way. Buchholz had 8 K’s and no walks and has really impressed of late. Buchholz is now 7-3 on the season with a […]
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 […]
This one is going to hurt – the Red Sox blew an 8-2 lead and ended up losing to the Royals 12-9 in Kansas City. With the Yankees losing to the Angels on the west coast, the Red Sox blew a golden opportunity to cut the AL East lead to just 4 games with […]
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.
Clay Buchholz won his 6th game of 2009 as the Red Sox opened their 10-game road trip with a 3-1 win over the O’s in Baltimore. Buchholz pitched 6 innings of 1-run ball, giving up just 5 hits and 3 walks with 1 strikeout. Daniel Bard, Hideki Okajima and Jonathan Papelbon each pitched a […]
