BOSTON — A couple of hours after a nearly epic comeback against the Blue Jays fell short in an 8-7 loss, the Red Sox at last got the ending they were looking for, even if it occurred 3,000 miles from Fenway Park on Tuesday. Once the Rangers suffered a 5-2 loss to the Angels in [...]

NEW YORK – It was, in its own way, just like old times. There was Daisuke Matsuzaka on the mound, being his 2008 self, causing heart palpitations among the Red Sox faithful (and his teammates). Matsuzaka does not always make it easy on manager Terry Francona, who hardly needs more stress in his life. But [...]

BALTIMORE – Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell could tell in the bullpen before last night’s game. Clay Buchholz was not equipped with his best arsenal, the command of pitches a tick off, the snap on his breaking ball a touch flat. When Farrell reported back to Terry Francona, the Red Sox manager did not [...]

BOSTON — Clay Buchholz somehow managed to ignore all those homers the Red Sox were hitting over the Green Monster. Staked to an 8-0 lead before he allowed his first baserunner, Buchholz pitched seven innings of three-hit ball to take advantage of Boston’s season-high six homers and beat Baltimore 10-0 on Tuesday night. “I try [...]

CHICAGO – Coming into this series, the Red Sox had a chance to reverse their fortunes on the road and build their lead in the wild-card race. After losing the first two games and bouncing back for a win Sunday, the Sox yesterday dropped the final game, 5-1, to the White Sox in front of [...]

CHICAGO – The catch seemed improbable. Dustin Pedroia scrambled to the foul line in mid-range right field. He was in place in time, making a stellar over-the-shoulder grab, and firing the ball immediately to shortstop Alex Gonzalez, who doubled up Scott Podsednik at second for the first two outs for Jon Lester. The play was [...]

Red Sox losers in this pitched battle

CHICAGO – Nothing is certain for Tim Wakefield at this point in the season, at this point in his career, at this point in the pain. He can barely walk around the clubhouse, with a limp that gets more and less noticeable, based on the day. There is constant discomfort, most obvious when the aging [...]

ST. PETERSBURG — The Red Sox try not to prioritize one game over another over the marathon of 162, but there was a different feel under the roof of Tropicana Field on Thursday night. This was a game and a series manager Terry Francona’s team wanted to win badly, and it got both in grinding [...]

ST. PETERSBURG — It was a Wednesday evening at Tropicana Field without flow, and hard to evaluate for both Josh Beckett and the Red Sox. Take, for instance, the ace, who started poorly but finished strong. Or the Red Sox themselves, who spent the better part of the night trying to claw their way back [...]
