    Red Sox 3, Seattle 5:
    Rhyme of the Ancient Knuckler…

    Once again, Tim Wakefield pitched a quality start–a complete game outing, throwing 94 pitches, 68 for strikes, and giving up 5 runs (4 earned) on 9 hits (including a homer) while walking 2 and striking out 4… But a couple of errors, the 16th passed ball of the season, and that lack of offense by […]

    Red Sox 2, Minnesota 5:
    Dragging some serious butt…

    I have no statistical data to back this up, but it frequently seems that by the time the Sox get to the last game of a really long stretch where they haven’t had a day off–as in this case, 20 games in 20 days, they don’t fare too well… And, it’s pretty safe to say […]

    Red Sox 3, Skanks 2, in 10:
    2 out of 3, as expected…

    Just not the 2 out of 3 I was expecting… John Lackey beat CC Sabathia? Hello? Never saw THAT coming… And, Holy Buckets, it was almost 1 out of 3 when it looked like the Sox were going to be shut down by freaking Freddy Garcia , et al–and they were…At least twice the bases […]

    Red Sox, 3 Cleveland 7:
    Not the best way it could have gone…

    Oh…CRAP… Can’t say it’s Erik Bedard’s fault, he did his job, and gave the Sox exactly what they wanted from him–a decent outing that kept them in the game–and that is exactly what he did. Throwing 70 pitches, 49 for strikes, Bedard went 5 innings giving up 3 runs on 7 hits while walking none […]

    Red Sox 4, Cleveland 3:
    2 for Jake!

    Holy Buckets! I am watching the end of the game last night, and Jacoby Ellsbury comes up to bat, and I am thinking “NO WAY he could pull this off again” and then, Bam! Solo shot to Center Field–his 18th homer of the 2011 campaign. And Jacoby Ellsbury has his 2nd walk of win in […]
