Red Sox bats pummel Burnett again, Sox move into first place in AL East

Though the Red Sox and Yankees typically are evenly matched when they face each other, the Red Sox have recently dominated their rival. After last night’s 11-6 Boston victory at Yankee Stadium, the Red Sox have won 12 of their last 15 games against the Yankees dating to last season. This year, they are 7-1 [...]

Papelbon breaks Mariano Rivera’s record at Yankee Stadium

Lester, Papelbon good enough in 6-4 Red Sox win over Yankees

By Jeff Louderback Jon Lester was erratic at times, but he kept the Yankees from erupting for a big inning.

A grab bag of Red Sox notes as Sox prepare for three-game series at Yankee Stadium

By Jeff Louderback The saying goes, “That’s why they play the games.” In other words, the final results aren’t always the expected results. The Red Sox looked unpolished when they were on the wrong end of a three-game sweep against the woeful Chicago White Sox at Fenway Park last week. Boston followed that with a [...]

Lester’s historic win, three home runs from offense help Red Sox complete sweep at Yankee Stadium

The weekend three-game series with the Yankees at Yankee Stadium was criticial for the Red Sox. Entering the series, Boston was 17-20 and four games behind New York.

Buchholz gem preserved in nailbiting fashion by Bard, Papelbon

It wouldn’t be vintage Red Sox and Yankees if there wasn’t tension until the last out. Friday was no different. Fueled by a sacrifice fly from Adrian Gonzalez and a two-run bomb from Kevin Youkilis – all off Joba Chamberlain – the Red Sox claimed a 5-2 lead in the seventh and held on for [...]

Vintage Beckett blanks Yankees as Scutaro delivers timely hit

After Red Sox pitching was pounded for nine runs by the Yankees in a 9-4 loss on Saturday, Dustin Pedroia said that the Sox needed to pitch better for the team to win. Pedroia was right, but the blame for the 1-7 start can justifiably be placed on the offense, which ranks near the bottom [...]
