Beckett Sharp Again, Red Sox Top Angels 4-2 in 11 Innings – Fenway Park 4/22/11

Josh Beckett is once again doing his best to re-stake his claim on being the “ace” of the Red Sox starting rotation.  Beckett tossed 5-innings of no-hit ball before giving up a single to Erick Aybar to lead off the 6th inning.  It looked like Beckett would get another win as Jacoby Ellsbury’s 2-run single [...]

3-2 Loss to Rays Leaves Red Sox with MLB-Worst 2-9 Record – Fenway Park 4/13/11

What else can you say – the Red Sox have the worst record in baseball at 2-9.  Jon Lester had one bad inning – 3 straight singles set up a fielder’s choice RBI groundout by Sam Fuld and a 2-run game winning single by former Red Sox player Johnny Damon.  And that’s all the Rays [...]

Buchholz, Pitchers Shine in 2-1 Red Sox Win Over Orioles – Fenway Park Fort Myers FL 3/10/11

Clay Buchholz continues to show that his marvelous 2010 campaign was no fluke.  Buchholz scattered 4 hits over 4 scoreless  innings and he has still not allowed a single run this spring.  He struck out 3 batters and did not walk a batter.  If Buchholz and Lester pick up where they left off in 2010 [...]

Red Sox Keep Re-Vamping Bullpen – Add Dan Wheeler Into Mix – Fenway Park 12/18/10
