In serious need of some consistency heading into the All-Star break, the Red Sox put together a nearly complete performance in a 6-3 win to sweep the Tigers on Sunday, with a lineup continuing to click, David Price throwing five strong innings and the bullpen falling one pitch short of closing it...

Whether or not “clutch” hitting is worth any stock is up for debate, but one thing is fairly clear: these Red Sox have trouble bringing home runners in the biggest spots. In Sunday’s 6-1 loss to the Blue Jays, leaving Boston 1-2 for the series with a team that’s 21 games back in the division, the...

Coming off two straight losses to the Texas Rangers, the Boston Red Sox stayed above .500 with a little help from Andrew Benintendi’s bat. In the loss on Tuesday night, Benintendi had just two at-bats before getting ejected alongside manager Alex Cora because of a close call at first base. The 24-...

Mookie Betts is batting lead off with Andrew Benintendi hitting second, which is a change from the norm where Benintendi has been in the lead off spot.

The Red Sox enter the four-game series in the Bronx 7 1/2 games behind the first-place Yankees after losing two out of three to Cleveland. Somehow, the Yankees have managed to adopt the Patriots’ “Next Man Up” mentality, relying on players not named Aaron Judge or Giancarlo Stanton to provide...

You wouldn’t use the phrase “pitchers’ duel” to describe Wednesday’s game between the Red Sox and Indians. Neither starter, Boston’s Ryan Weber and Cleveland’s Shane Bieber, had much luck in preventing opposing hitters from catching barrel. Though, Bieber at least held the Red Sox scoreless in two...

It looked like the Red Sox entered another dimension in Friday’s 4-3 loss to the Astros. (For a complete recap, click here.) Less than a week after giving up three runs (two earned) to the Red Sox at Fenway, Wade Miley looked more like Chris Sale than Chris Sale did. The former Red Sox starter...

JD Martinez returns to the Red Sox starting lineup for Friday night’s series opener against the Astros. He’s been absent for the last four games, missing the entire series in Toronto due to a mix of a scheduled day off (Monday), illness and back tightness. Martinez will hit fourth and is the...
