By now everyone knows about Mike Napoli 's monster homestand -- batting .429 (9-for-21), with six runs scored, five home runs and 10 RBIs -- but what many might not know is the story behind the bat he used. Prior to Thursday's game with the Rangers, the Red Sox first baseman had a fan who was on...

Dare we say the Red Sox have turned a corner? Following an unimpressive start to the homestand, dropping three of the first four games with barely any life, the Red Sox won the last two games of the series against the Angels, capping it off with a 6-1 win Sunday. Wade Miley gave the Red Sox their...

Sometimes bad luck can lead to good things. In the case of the Red Sox , Shane Victorino leaving Saturday's game against the Angels (and subsequently landing on the disabled list) opened a new opportunity for John Farrell and Mookie Betts.

When C.J. Wilson is paying Mike Napoli a compliment, you know he means it. The two rivals from their bitter tweet dust-up of 2012 met again Saturday night, and safe to say, Napoli got the last laugh. He homered twice off the pitcher who took offense to Napoli proclaiming that he can't wait to make...

How about some consistency? After the Red Sox scored one run or less in four of their last six games and came in averaging 2.34 runs per game in the month of May, they finally had a good offensive night, scoring five runs, but it wasn't enough as they couldn't continue their string of strong games...

Maybe all the Red Sox needed was to come home. After struggling on their 10-game road trip, averaging 2.3 runs a game, including scoring just seven overall in four games in Seattle over the weekend, the Red Sox ' bats awoke with 13 hits, including two home runs in their 4-3 win at Fenway Park over...

Your browser does not support iframes. Pablo Sandoval is like Two-Face in the Batman movies. From the left side of the plate, he represents goodness. From the right side, he is grotesque. On Monday night in Oakland, he needed only one swing from the left side to make his mark, lining an Angel...
