TORONTO -- Chris Young understands there isn't much he can do other than simply keep calling and praying. The Red Sox outfielder, and Houston native, talked prior to his team's game against the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre about the concern he had for his family during the current Hurricane Harvey-...

The Red Sox have spent most of the season ranked last in the American League in home runs, but they finally appear to be flipping the power switch. After hitting just 25 home runs during an impotent July, the Red Sox have exploded in August. They scored all but one of their runs in a 6-3 victory...

The Red Sox jumped out to a 4-0 lead and never looked back as they beat the Blue Jays, 5-1. It was their second straight win and...

KANSAS CITY -- It isn't out of the realm of possibility that Hanley Ramirez goes on a tear at some point. The righty hitter experienced a similar downturn in May and June of last season before going on to hit 30 home runs. But, as John Farrell pointed out prior to his team's game against the Royals...

The Red Sox trailed 4-2 and left-hander Andrew Miller was on the mound for the Indians. After Xander Bogaerts grounded out, Chris Young...

Apparently, it was just a one-game thing. A night after being dropped in the order to No. 6, Xander Bogaerts is back to batting second in the second game of a three-game series with the Blue Jays.

The Red Sox will look to make it two in a row and extend their lead even more in the AL East following Thursday's dramatic walk-off win. Chris Young will get the start in left field and Andrew Benintendi will rest as the Red Sox go up against right-hander Luis Cessa. It's likely the Red Sox wanted...

You know the Red Sox offense had a good night when David Price allowed two runs over eight innings and he wasn't the biggest story. The Red Sox scored early and often against Orioles starter Wade Miley and never looked back in a 12-2 rout where they scored in every inning but the eighth. With the...
