Wow what a crazy game last night at Fenway Park as the Boston Red Sox came from behind and scored the final eight runs in the game to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 8-7. J.D. Drew delivered the game winning hit in the bottom of the ninth inning as he once again dominated J.P. Howells. The 8-7 victory now pushes the series to game six which will be played Saturday down in Tampa.

Four runs in the seventh, three in the eighth, and one in the ninth inning is how the Sox came back after being down 7-0. Drew finished the game with three rbi as did David Ortiz. Finally Big Papi got a hit and even though it was only one it was huge as he went deep for a three-run home run. Coco Crisp and Dustin Pedroia both had rbi’s in the rally as well.

Justin Masterson picked up the victory as he tossed the ninth inning. Jonathan Papelbon allowed two runs to score on a double after he came into the game in relief of Manny Delcarmen who walked both of the runners on base. Starting Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka only lasted four innings as he gave up five hits and five runs. Dice-K had problems from the get go as he served up three home runs in the first three innings of the game.

If the Sox want to win game six, they are going to need a great pitching performance out of Josh Beckett. Beckett needs to throw the ball better then he did earlier in the series that is for sure. I have the feeling if the Sox can win game six, then the Rays are really going to feel the pressure and they will also fold in game seven. What do you guy think?

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!

Daisuke Matsuzaka picked up his 11th win of the season and improved to 11-1 as he 7 1/3 innings and the Boston Red Sox defeated the Seattle Mariners 4-2.  It was another good win for the Red Sox out in Seattle as they have now taken the first two games of the three game series and will be looking for the sweep on Wednesday.

It was a quality start for Dice-K as he gave up five hits and two runs.  He did walk three batters but struckout six others.  His era now sits 2.63 after the game.

Hideki Okajima recorded the final two outs in the 8th inning after Dice-K left the game.  Jonathan Papelbon recorded his 30th save of the season as he shut the door on the Mariners in the 9th inning.  Great job by Okajima and Papelbon.

J.D. Drew went 2-3 with a solo home run and a rbi sac fly to lead the team with two rbi.  Drew has been on fire as of late and is really swinging the bat very good.  Mike Lowell hit a rbi double while Jed Lowrie added a rbi sac fly.  Both Lowell’s and Lowrie’s rbi’s came in the 5th inning.

I like the Red Sox chances Wednesday afternoon to pick up another win and sweep the Mariners.  What do you think about the game?

The Boston Red Sox scored four runs in the bottom of the eighth inning as they completed a nice comeback and defeated the visiting Minnesota Twins by the score of 6-5.  It was a great win for the Red Sox and huge because the rivals in New York beat the Tampa Bay Rays so now the Red Sox are only 3 games out in the division.

J.D. Drew had a rbi groundout in the eighth to get the Red Sox’s rally started.  Manny Ramirez then hit a two run home run and Brandon Moss then tacked on a rbi single.  Drew, Ramirez, and Moss all had two rbi each in the game.  Dustin Pedroia also had two hits in the game to extend his hitting streak to 16 games.

Jon Lester tossed 7 1/3 innings as he got a no decision in the game.  Lester gave up nine hits and five runs as he was shacky through out the game.  To be honest, I’m suprised that he was able to last seven plus innings the way he was throwing the ball.

David Aardsma was the winning pitcher after recording the final two outs in the eighth inning after he came in when Lester excited.  Jonathan Papelbon had some troubles in the ninth inning as the Twins had the game tying run on third base but he was able to finish off the Twins without that run scoring.  Papelbon now has 27 saves on the season.

Wow, that was a very dissapointing series for the Boston Red Sox as they were swept by the Tampa Bay Rays.  The Red Sox lost 7-6 on Wednesday night for the third loss in a row against the Rays.  The Rays used a huge six run inning in the seventh to take the win away from the Sox.

Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched five innings and pitched very well as he only gave up two hits and one run.  It was the Red Sox bullpen that really struggled.  Manny Delcarmen gave up three hits and four runs while Craig Hansen allowed six hits and there runs.  Delcarmen and Hansen simply didn’t have it tonight and they really hurt the team.

Dustin Pedroia led the Red Sox with two rbi including a solo home run in the first inning.  J.D. Drew, Manny Ramirez, and Kevin Youkilis all had one rbi each.

So now the Red Sox were just swept by the Rays and they will start up a four game series against the Yankees on Friday.  The Yankees avoided a sweep by the Rangers with a blow out win on Thursday night so both teams struggled in their last series.  It will be interesting to see how things turn out.

Once again the Boston Red Sox struggled against the Tampa Bay Rays as they two teams battle it our for first place in the division.  On Tuesday night, the Red Sox were unable to come up with a big hit late in the game when they had chances to score and ended up losing by the score of 3-1.

The Red Sox had a great chance to score some runs in the eighth inning when they had the bases loaded but Mike Lowell grounded out to shortstop and the Sox were unable to score a run.

J.D. Drew had the only rbi for the Red Sox and that came in the fourth inning when he hit a rbi sac fly that scored Jacoby Ellsbury.  Other then that, the Red Sox only had six hits in the game and were unable to score any more runs.  Terrible outing for the offense when the team really needed them to step up.

Tim Wakefield pitched a good game as he threw seven innings and only gave up five hits and two runs.  One of those two runs were earned.  Wakefield walked three and struck out four batters in the game as well.  It was too bad that Wakefield took the loss and fell to 5-6 on the season.  Craig Hansen started the eighth inning for the Sox and was pulled after two runners reached base.  Manny Delcarmen then came in and gave up a rbi single.  The run was charged to Hansen.

So now the Red Sox find them selves down 0-2 in the series to the Rays and 2.5 games out of first place in the division.  I don’t want to say that Wednesday’s game is a must win, but it is pretty high up there if you ask me.

The Boston Red Sox suffered a dissapointing loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night by the score of 5-4.  The three game series against the Rays is going to be a very big one as far as the standings go.  With the loss on Monday night, the Rays are now up 1.5 games on the Red Sox in the division.

Red Sox starting pitcher Justin Masterson lasted six inning as he gave up five hits and four runs.  Five walks and two home runs really hurt Masterson as he took the loss in the game to fall to 4-2 on the season.  B.J. Upton and Gabe Gross both took Masterson deep in the game.

Chris Smith gave up three walks and one run in only 1/3 of an inning.  Javier Lopez was then called in to pitch the final 1 2/3 innings of the game.  Lopez did a good job by holding the Rays at five runs.

Mike Lowell had a rbi single in the fourth inning and then J.D. Drew hit a solo home run in the sixth inning.  Drew is swinging a very hot bat this month, and could very well be the player of the month the way he swung the bat in June.  The Sox just ran into James Shields who was wheeling and dealing on the mound.

The Sox did make it interesting in the ninth inning as they scored two runs off of Troy Percival and had the tying run on third base when Julio Lugo came to bat against J.P. Howell. However Lugo  Brandon Moss and Jason Varitek both had rbi’s for the Red Sox in the ninth inning as they came up big.

Josh Beckett pitched eight strong innings but he gave up two runs and the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Boston Red Sox 2-1.  Beckett was really sharp as he only gave up five hits and the two runs while striking out eight Diamondbacks batters.  However, the Red Sox offense struggled at the plate against Dan Haren as they were only able to score one run.

J.D. Drew had a rbi sacrafice fly in the eighth inning that scored Julio Lugo for the only Red Sox run in the game.  Haren limited the Red Sox to only four hits in the game.

The Red Sox will send Justin Masterson to the mound on Tuesday night as they try to even up the series at one game each.  I think Masterson will come out and throw a good game while the Red Sox pick up the victory!

J.D. Drew who was booed everytime he came to bad led the Boston Red Sox past the Philadelphia Phillies by the score of 7-4.  Drew went 4-5 and fell only a triple shy of hitting for the cycle.  Drew also had four rbi in the game to lead the Red Sox in that category.

Drew and Mike Lowell went back to back when they both hit home runs in the first inning and the Red Sox never looked back from there.  Brandon Moss contributed with two rbi’s in the game as well.  Moss had a two run single in the third inning.

Justin Masterson pitched five innings and allowed four hits and two runs while picking up the win.  Masterson walked two batters, struckout one, while improving his record to 4-1.  It was a quality outing for Masterson and that is all you can ask out of him at this point.

Javier Lopez pitched a scoreless inning before Craig Hansen came in during the seventh inning and gave up two hits and two runs withour recording an out.  Manny Delcarmen ended up pitching the seventh and eighth innings before Jonathan Papelbon came in for the ninth inning.  Papelbon had no problems picking up his 21st save of the season.

With the win, the Red Sox took two out of three games from the Phillies so it was a really good series overall.  Now the Red Sox will be off on Thursday before starting a series against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday.

The Boston Red Sox didn’t get off to the start they were hoping to against the Philadelphia Phillies.  Starting pitcher Bartolo Colon only lasted four innings after giving up four runs and leaving the game in the fifth inning with some sort of back injury.

Once Colon left the game the Red Sox called on the bullpen which was ok except for one pitcher.  Mike Timlin gave up four more runs in just 2/3′s of an inning.  David Aardsma, Javier Lopez, and Hideki Okajima all threw the ball well out though.  Timlin more less to the Red Sox out of the game when he gave up the four runs in the sixth inning.

The only runs for the Red Sox came in the fifth inning with Dustin Pedroia and J.D. Drew hit back-to-back solo home runs.  Other then that the Red Sox struggled at getting back to back hits or any sort of rally going.  Hopefully they will swing the bat better on Tuesday.
