The Cubs beat the Red Sox 3-0 in the opener of the much-anticipated series between Theo Epstein’s new team and his old team. Ryan Dempster outdueled Daisuke Matsuzaka in another solid outing for the worst team in baseball – 7 scoreless innings, 4 hits, 2 walks and 3 K’s. Maybe we should make a […]
You have to give the Red Sox credit for battling through an 8-6 win over the 1st place Orioles in Camden Yards in Baltimore on Monday night. After taking 2 of 3 from the Phillies over the weekend, this was definitely a potential let-down game. But with a chance to get back to .500 […]
It wasn’t pretty, but a win is a win, as the Red Sox hung on for a 7-6 win and a sweep of the Twins in Minneapolis. Clay Buchholz notched win number 2, but he needed some help in the 6th as he ran out of juice. Buchholz cruised through 5 innings of 1-run […]
It wasn’t pretty but the Red Sox ended their skid with a come from behind 6-5 win over the Twins in Minnesota on Monday night. After building an early 3-0 lead, it was de ja vu all over again as the Twins rallied for 4 runs in the 4th and another run in the […]

Dustin Pedroia and Adrian Gonzalez each had 2 hits in the Red Sox 5-1 win over the Twins. The Red Sox scored 5 runs on 10 hits.

Josh Beckett answered Jon Lester’s 7 scoreless innings with 5 of his own in Tuesday’s 8-0 win over the Rays. He gave up only 1 hit while walking three and he racked up 5 K’s. Lester and Beckett look to be peaking at the right time – now the Red Sox just need to […]
Jon Lester bounced back with the best starting pitcher outing of the spring in Monday’s 6-0 shutout of the Phillies. Lester tossed 90 efficient pitches – throwing 7 scoreless innings while striking out 10!!! He gave up only 2 hits and he did not walk a batter. Pretty impressive – if he can have […]
