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 […]
The A’s clobbered Tim Wakefield and the Red Sox 15-5 on Friday night at Fenway Park. Wakefield was denied the chance to pick up his 300th of his career for the 6th time. Not good. He gave up 8 runs (4 earned) on 8 hits and 2 walks in 4 innings pitched. Given the […]
The Red Sox used a 10-run 7th inning to turn a close game into a 14-5 laugher of a win. Matt Albers benefited from the outburst as he tossed 1 1/3 innings of scoreless ball to pick up his 2nd win of the season.
Andrew Miller made his 2011 debut for the Red Sox […]
The White Sox completed a 3-game series sweep over the Red Sox with a 7-4 win on Wednesday afternoon at Fenway Park. The White Sox out-hit the Red Sox for a 3rd straight day (12-9) as they outscored the Red Sox in the series 24-14. WOW – what an unbelievable turn of events for […]
It was a back-and-forth game all night long, and the Red Sox eventually came out on the short end of the stick. They trailed 3-0 from the get-go, but rallied to take a 4-3 lead on Adrian Gonzalez’ first home run of the night – a 2-run shot in the 5th inning. The Red […]

In Saturday’s 4-0 rain-delayed game, Clay Buchholz took home “MVP” honors by agreeing to pitch after the 1 hour and 45 minute rain delay to give the over-worked bullpen a chance to catch its breath after 3 […]
Josh Beckett pitched well, but Josh Tomlin was better, as the Indians handed the Red Sox their 4th straight loss to open the season. Beckett went 6 strong innings, giving up 3 ER on 5 hits and 4 walks. He also had 4 K’s and for the first game of the season, the Red Sox […]
Matt Albers and Dennys Reyes have made the red Sox 2011 opening day roster as relievers. Both Albers and Reyes earned it with solid springs, but it was also easier for Manager Terry Francona and the Red Sox to keep both releivers because neither play had options remaining to be sent down to the […]
Jon Lester continues to impress this spring. Lester worked into the 6th inning in the Red Sox 4-1 loss to the Phillies. Lester gave up 4 runs (3 earned) on 5 hits and 4 walks. The high number of walks is a concern again, especially since Lester has said that he wanted to work […]
The Red Sox signed former Red Sox reliever Lenny DiNardo to a minore league contract this week. DiNardo’s deal is subject to the positive results of an MRI that he is scheduled to undergo. He will serve as a reliever or for a little depth in the starting rotation at some point during the […]
