It wasn’t the way the players, coaches, or fans wanted the season to end, but the Boston Red Sox were beat by the Tampa Bay Rays in game 7 of the ALCS on Sunday night. The Red Sox offense struggled against Matt Garza as they only had three hits and one run in the 3-1 loss.

Jon Lester and the sox pitchers didn’t throw the ball bad. The Rays just got key hits when they needed to and hit a solo home run. Lester took the loss which was his second of the series. He tossed seven innings and was charged with six hits and all three runs that the Rays scored. The Rays scored on a single, double, and home run.

The only offense for the sox was a Dustin Pedroia solo home run in the first inning. Coco Crisp and Jason Bay had the other two hits for team. The rest of the offense was terrible and they were never able to figure Garza or the Rays bullpen out. The big bats in the lineup didn’t show up that is for sure.

I will say congratulations to the Tampa Bay Rays as they head into the World Series to take on the Philadelphia Phillies. If any Red Sox fans would like to read our blogs about the Phillies or Rays you can goto Phillies Homeplate and Rays Homeplate.

Now we will sit back and see what management decides to do with players and contracts in the off season. We will still be blogging about rumors and trades so check back daily!

The Boston Red Sox got off to the start they wanted to in the ALCS as they took game one down in Tampa by the score of 2-0. The sox got out of jams in the game and limited the Rays to only four hits as they went up 1-0 in the best of seven series.

Dice K was great as he pitched seven innings and only gave up four hits to the Rays. Dice K struck out nine batters but also walked four. The walks were the only reason that the Rays were really threatning to score any runs but then Matsusaka worked out of the jams without allowing any runs to score. K was actually throwing a no hitter until the seventh inning when Carl Crawford broke up the no-no.

Jonathan Papelbon closed out the game by pretty much throwing fastballs and recorded the save. Papelbon struck out two of the three batters that he faced.

There wasn’t much offense for the Red Sox as they faced off against James Shields. They were only able to come up with two runs on seven hits in the game. Jed Lowrie got the scoring started in the fifth inning with a rbi sac fly that scored Jason Bay. Kevin Youkilis then added the second and final run in the seventh inning when he doubled and plated Dustin Pedroia.

It could be another low scoring game on Saturday as the Red Sox will send Josh Beckett to the mound against the Rays and Scott Kazmir. Hopefully the Sox can get to Kazmir early and take the pressure off Beckett but we will have to see.

The Sox went onto win the game 4-1.

The Sox are now up 1-0 in the best of five series and are sitting pretty against the Angels. Jon Lester was great as he threw seven innings while only giving up six hits and one run. Lester struck out seven batters and only walked one.

Justin Masterson and Jonathan Papelbon finished off the game by pitching the last two innings of the game and holding of the Angels. Papelbon allowed one hit but struck out three to end the game and pick up the save.

What a great game for the Boston Red Sox on Monday night as they opened up a three game series down in Tampa against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Red Sox hammered the Rays for a 13-5 win and they are now tied with the Rays for the division lead.

The sox offense got right at things in the the first inning as they scored four runs in the first inning and then knocked out Rays starting pitcher Scott Kazmir after only three innings. David Ortiz had four rbi while Kevin Youkilis finished the game with three rbi. Jason Varitek added two rbi and four others had one rbi each. Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, Kevin Cash, and Jason Bay all finished with one rbi. In total, the sox hit 6 home runs off the Rays pitchers.

Daisuke Matsuzaka got the start for the Red Sox but only pitched five innings. His five innings of action was enough to get the win and improve his record to 17-2 however. Dice-K had given up three hits and one run while striking out seven.

Chris Smith pitched the next two innings and gave up four hits, four runs, and two home runs. Not a good outing for Smith, it was a good thing that the Sox had scored so many runs that the runs Smith gave up really didn’t matter.

The Red Sox will now try to take the division lead on Tuesday night as they face off against the Rays once again.

The Boston Red Sox picked up a huge win on Monday night against the visiting Tampa Bay Rays. The Red Sox scored three quick runs in the first inning and then held off the Rays the final eight innings to pick up the 3-0 victory. Exactly the way the sox were wanting to start off the three game series with the Rays. The sox are now only a half game beind the Rays in the division!

Big papi David Ortiz started things off with an rbi double to score Mark Kotsay to make the score 1-0. Ortiz then came around to score on a rbi single to shallow center by Kevin Youkilis. Youkilis was tagged out on the play when he tried advancing to second base on the play. With the bases now empty, Jason Bay hit a solo home run to make the score 3-0 sox.

That was all the offense that the Sox would need on the night as Jon Lester and Jonathan Papelbon were awesome. Lester pitched 7 2/3 innings to pick up the victory. Lester gave up six hits while walking three and striking out nine others. Good quality start for Lester! Papelbon pitched 1 1/3 innings to record the save which was his 36th of the season.

Great job for the sox and they will now hope to win on Tuesday to take the lead back in the division.

The Boston Red Sox were hammered by the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night by the score of 11-6. The Red Sox attempted to come back as they out-hit the Orioles 13-9 but the Orioles wern’t having anything to do with it and only allowed the sox to score a late run in the eighth inning.

Four out of five Red Sox pitchers gave up runs in the game. Starting pitcher Clay Buchholz only lasted 2 1/3 innings as he gave up three hits and five runs. David Aardsma gave up two runs, Javier Lopez was charged with three runs while Mike Timlin gave up one run. Bad outing by the Red Sox pitching staff.

Jacoby Ellsbury, David Ortiz, Kevin Youkilis, Jason Bay, and Jed Lowrie all had rbi’s in the game for the Sox. It clearly wasn’t enough however as the pitching staff completely sucked it up.

The Boston Red Sox once again used their high powered offense as eight different players had a rbi and the Red Sox beat the Texas Rangers 10-0. It was a great showing by the three pitchers that pitched as well as all of the batters that had no problems against the Rangers.

Nine runs in the second inning blew the game open for the Sox. Coco Crisp, Alex Cora, J.D. Drew, Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, Jason Bay, and Jed Lowrie all had rbi’s in the second inning. Ortiz had the big shot that was a three run home run. In the eighth inning, Jeff Bailey got in on the action with an rbi of his own as well.

Dice-K threw seven strong innings to pick up the win. He allowed six hits and five runs but worked his way out of jams without allowing any runs. Manny Delcarmen and Mike Timlin both tossed one inning each in the game after Dice-K left the game.

Now the Red Sox will play the Toronto Blue Jays in a three game weekend series. Let’s all hope for another Red Sox sweep!
