10-run seventh, solid start by Andrew Miller propel Red Sox to 14-5 rout of Padres

The Red Sox continued to get solid starting pitching and explosive offense, and they continued to pound National League pitching, last night against the San Diego Padres. This time, though, they received a boost from a new starting pitcher in a 14-5 rout of San Diego at Fenway Park. Andrew Miller limited the Padres to [...]

Wakefield spins another strong start in 12-3 Red Sox rout of Brewers

Adrian Gonzalez belted his 1,000th career hit with his third triple of the season, and Tim Wakefield delivered eight strong innings as the Red Sox pounded the Brewers, 12-3. All three Red Sox starting pitchers recorded eight innings in the three-game series against Milwaukee. Boston took two out of three in the weekend series and [...]

Lester settles down but Wolf limits Red Sox in 4-2 Brewers win

Jon Lester went deep into his start last night, but early in the game the Milwaukee Brewers went deep against him. Lester served up back-to-back home runs to Rickie Weeks and Corey Hart to open the game. Then he allowed a solo home run to former Red Sox catcher George Kottaras in a two-run second. [...]

Lackey rebounds, Red Sox bats erupt in 10-4 win over Brewers

After losing Jed Lowrie to the 15-day disabled list today with a shoulder injury, the Red Sox saw Carl Crawford depart tonight’s game with a strained hamstring and Kevin Youkilis leave with a stomach illness. Their absences didn’t prevent the Sox from knocking around Milwaukee, 10-4, at Fenway Park. It was the first of 15 [...]

Bullpen, A-Gonz supports Buchholz in 4-2 win over Rays

By Jeff Louderback Clay Buchholz left after five solid innings last night because of lower back tightness, but the bullpen held the lead and the Red Sox departed Tropicana Field with two wins in a three-game series against Tampa Bay. As he often does, Jonathan Papelbon made things interesting in the bottom of the ninth. [...]

Beckett tosses first career one-hitter in complete game gem against Rays

After completing a five-hit shutout of the Red Sox on Tuesday, Tampa Bay right-hander James Shields remarked that it was one of the best performances of his career. On Wednesday, Josh Beckett topped Shields’ start, limiting the Rays to a third inning infield single by Reid Brignac and tossing a complete game one-hit shutout as [...]

Wakefield good, Shields better as Red Sox winning streak reaches an end

Tim Wakefield pitched well last night, his five walks aside. James Shields, though, pitched better. The Tampa Bay right-hander tossed his fourth complete game of the year and third complete game shutout, blanking the Red Sox, 4-0, and ending Boston’s nine-game winning streak. Throwing 119 pitches, the most he has tallied in a start since [...]

Red Sox leave Blue Jays pitching in shambles

It is rare when you see one major league team obliterate another in back-to-back games like the Red Sox did to the Blue Jays on Saturday and Sunday. One day after they erupted for 18 hits in a 16-4 lambasting of the Blue Jays, the Red Sox pummeled Toronto, 14-1, at the Rogers Centre. The [...]

Red Sox bats support Lackey in 16-4 rout of Blue Jays

By Jeff Louderback Lugging a 7.60 ERA into his start this afternoon at Toronto, John Lackey would certainly benefit from some run support. The veteran right-hander was given enough help to last three starts when the Red Sox erupted for 16 runs and 18 hits on the way to a 16-4 rout on the Blue Jays. After [...]

Buchholz overcomes obstacles in solid start against Blue Jays

By Jeff Louderback It was not the ideal scenario leading up to Friday night’s start against the Blue Jays for Clay Buchholz. The right-hander was scratched from his last outing so he could get additional rest for his aching back. Then the Red Sox did not arrive in Toronto until around 7 a.m. after Thursday night’s game [...]
