The Red Sox did their part once again, Brock Holt in particular. It was the Sox infielder who stepped to the plate to lead off the ninth inning against one of the best closers in the game Kirby Yates and launched a go-ahead home run on the first pitch he saw. One scoreless inning from closer...

Just when it looked like Pablo Sandoval was setting himself up for life beyond that five-year contract he signed with the Red Sox prior to the 2015 season, the 33-year-old's career has hit another roadblock. The Giants announced Saturday that Sandoval's season was coming to an end due to...

It was a good time had by all (except for the Padres). The wacky nicknames. The weird cleats. The nice weather. And even one of the game's worst-hitting pitchers, Eduardo Rodriguez, got to score a run. ("Bad. He might be one of the worst, for sure. He’s bad," said J.D. Martinez of the Red Sox'...

Things haven't gone quite as planned for Matt Barnes this season. The strategy of using the reliever to face the meat of the opponents' batting order -- regardless of the inning -- has taken a detour, with the Red Sox for intent-and-purposes dubbing Brandon Workman as their ninth-inning guy. Part...

Charlie Berksza made history Thursday afternoon. He may have been the first Red Sox fan who attended the completion of a game that began when he wasn’t even born. Aug. 9 young Charlie came into this world (two days after the Sox and Royals were forced to stop their game in the 10th inning)...

The Red Sox and Royals completed their Aug. 7 game Thursday afternoon at Fenway Park and it didn't take very long to finish. Following the game being suspended due to rain a few weeks back, it was resumed in the top of the 10th inning with the Royals at the plate. Josh Taylor got out of the top of...

It could take four at-bats, it could take four hours. When it comes to the completion of the Red Sox' suspended game with the Royals Thursday afternoon there is plenty of mystery. There are, however, some aspects of the 1 p.m. tilt at Fenway Park which we do know. Here is a cheat sheet for what is...

Although it was more than 15 years ago, Alex Rodriguez almost was a member of the Red Sox . The Rangers and Red Sox agreed to a trade in 2003, but the Major League Baseball Players Association vetoed the deal since it didn't like Rodriguez would voluntarily be taking a reduction in salary from his...

While the news on Chris Sale isn't all good , it could have been much worse. The Red Sox lefty has inflammation in his elbow and received a PRP injection, which will keep him out at least six weeks. This is better than what it could have been whenever a pitcher goes to visit with Dr. James Andrews...

After his team's 3-2 loss to the Phillies Tuesday night Alex Cora was asked the margin of error question (the fact that the Red Sox don't have much room for it). Why was this brought up? Because a bad baserunning play at a most key time offered a pretty powerful reminder regarding this team's lot...
