I hope everyone is still alive after the blow out loss last night. How dissapointing is this to see the team play so terrible at home against the Tampa Bay Rays? If the 13-4 route on Tuesday night wasn’t bad enough, the Rays are now sending their ace Scott Kazmir to the mound in game five as they hope to finish off the Red Sox and advance to the World Series.

Things were bad right from the get go in game four as Tim Wakefield served up two home runs and allowed three runs in the first inning. Carlos Pena and Willy Aybar both went deep off the knuckle baller to put the Rays up 3-0. Wakefield would only last 2 2/3 innings but that was 2 2/3 innings to much as he gave up six hits and five runs including three home runs.

The bullpen wasn’t much better then Wakefield. Justin Masterson was charged with one run while Mike Timlin gave up two. The big blow to the bullpen was Manny Delcarmen who gave up five runs. The Rays just kept moving base runners along and played station to station baseball to score runs off the Red Sox bullpen. It’s too bad because the pitching staff never gave the offense a chance to get back into the game.

Kevin Youkilis led the offense with two rbi as he grounded out to score David Ortiz in the seventh inning and then added a rbi double to score Dustin Pedroia in the eight inning. Earlier in the eighth, Pedroia got on base via a rbi single that plated Jed Lowrie. The first Sox run came in the third inning on a Kevin Cash solo home run. That was the only home run the Sox would get as they just didn’t hit the ball hard against the Rays.

So now it is onto game five of the series. It is a win or go home situration for the Red Sox and they know that of course. They will be facing off against Scott Kazmir while they send Daisuke Matzuzaka. Let’s stay behind this team because we know that they come back and win the series if they start hitting the ball and the pitching staff stops allowing so many early runs and home runs. Stay positive Sox Nation.

For the second straight night, the Boston Red Sox lost to the Tampa Bay Rays as the two team battle for the division title. On Wednesay night, the Sox lost to the Rays by the score of 10-3. It just wasn’t the Red Sox night and they will now need to go on a nice winning streak if they want to win the division.

Tim Wakefield gave up three home runs in only 2 1/3 innings. Wakefield was charged with six hits and six runs as the Rays hit him very hard in his two plus innings of action. Wakefield took the loss and fell to 9-11 on the year. Devern Hansack gave up one run in relief while Javier Lopez and David Pauley were both charged with two runs each.

The Sox did get two home runs from big papi David Ortiz. Ortiz connected on a two run shot in the first inning and then a solo home run in the fourth inning. That was all the scoring for the Sox however as they struggled at the plate.

The Red Sox will be off on Thursday and then will begin a series with the Toronto Blue Jays. I look for the Red Sox to sweep the series and hopefully get right back on top of the division.

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.

Tim Wakefield pitched the first seven innings of the game for the Boston Red Sox and he only allowed two hits while the Red Sox beat the Diamondbacks 5-0.  It was a great outing by Wakefield and it was a good thing he pitched so well because the Red Sox offense only scored two runs in the game.

Wakefield improved his season record to 5-5 on the season as he picked up the win.  Wakefield walked one batter while striking out six others.  Manny Delcarmen pitched the eighth inning without giving up a run. Craig Hansen then came in to pitch the ninth inning but gave up two walks and infield single to load up the bases.  He was taken out of the game with two outs and Jonathan Papelbon came in and struck out Chad Tracy for the final out of the game.

Brandon Moss had rbi’s for the Red Sox.  Moss had a rbi ground out in the second inning and then had a rbi sac fly in the sixth inning.  In the eighth inning the Red Sox pushed across three more runs as Kevin Cash hit a three run homer to extend the Red Sox lead to 5-0.  The Red Sox need to get the bats going and get some more production going up and down the lineup as they didn’t do much until the eighth inning home run by Cash.

The off day on Thursday will hopefully help out the Red Sox.  They will then open up a three game series at Houston this weekend.

The Boston Red Sox battled back after getting down 2-0 to the Baltimore Orioles and had a 3-2 lead heading in to the eighth inning but then the wheels fell off and the Red Sox ended up losing the game 6-3.  Tough way to lose a game especially to the Orioles.

Hideki Okajima gave up all four runs in the eighth inning as he gave up a scan fly and then a bases loaded double to Adam Jones of the Orioles.  Starting pitcher Tim Wakefield pitched pretty good as he tossed seven innings and only gave up five hits and two runs.

At the plate for the Red Sox, they got single runs in the sixth, seventh, and eighth innings.  Manny Ramirez got things started in the sixth inning with his 12th home run of the season.  Kevin Cash had a rbi double in the seventh and then Mike Lowell had a rbi single in the eighth inning.  That was all the offense the Red Sox could get going in the game.

The Boston Red Sox had no answer for Erik Bedard and two Mariners relief pitchers as they were shutout 1-0 on Wenesday night.  In fact, the Red Sox hitters only had two hits in the entire ballgame!  You are definately not going to win a game doing that.

Mike Lowell and Manny Ramirez were the only two Red Sox batters to record a hit in the game.  Ramirez is still one shy of hitting 500 homeruns as well.

The offense wasted a great pitching performance by Tim Wakefield who threw all eight innings for the Red Sox.  Wakefield took the loss however as he gave up a run in the third inning when Yuniesky Betancourt hit a solo home run.  Wakefield’s record drops to 3-4 on the season with the loss.

The Red Sox will now have an off day before beginning a weekend series with the Baltimore Orioles.

Awesome performance by Wakefield who improved to 3-1 on the season.  A great performance that saved the bullpen some innings and that is always good early in the season.

Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz both hit their seventh home runs of the season in the game.  Both home runs came in the seventh inning as well.  J.D. Drew, Kevin Cash, and Coco Crisp all had one RBI each for the Red Sox.

The Red Sox have now won five straight games and their record stands at 22-13.

The Red Sox appear to like coming back from behind as they have in the last few games and it seems to be working as they were able to win over the Rangers in Boston 6-5 on Sunday afternoon putting them at 13-7 for the season and still leading the American League East. 

Tim Wakefeild came out for Boston to get the night going and ended up staying most of the night going eight innings for the Red Sox and giving up only one hit put picking up his second win of the season putting him at 2-0.  Jonathan Papelbon was brought in to close and got his 7th save of the year giving up no hits. 

Five Boston hitters got RBIs including David Ortiz, J.D. Drew, Dustin Pedroia, Sean Casey, and Jed Lowrie

With Boston taking on Texas one more time tomorrow afternoon and one game away from a four game sweep, do you think they have what it takes?

The Boston Red Sox used a ninth inning rally to score two runs and break a 3-3 tie and defeat the Cleveland Indians by the score of 5-3.  Jason Varitek’s big solo home run in the ninth inning proved to be too much for the Indians to handle.

Veritek wasn’t the only player to have a big night for the Red Sox as Jed Lowrie went one for three and three RBI.  It was Lowrie’s first major league hit and a big one that really helped out the team.  Lowrie said he could hardly stand at first base after the hit he was so excited.  Kevin Youkilis had an RBI insurance run after the Varitek home run as well.

Tim Wakefield pitched six innings and gave up seven hits and two earned runs to get the no decision.  David Aardsma picked up the win and Hideki Okajima grabbed the save for the Red Sox.
