Jacoby Ellsbury plated Alex Cora with the Red Sox ' fifth run with a double over the head of right fielder Juan Rivera. The hit was made possible partly due to a terrible angle taken on the blast to right by Rivera. Cora had reached on a double. Both hits came with two outs in the fourth inning.

Before we get to the meat and potatoes of the inning, we just saw Torii Hunter do something along the lines, but evidently not a lot less drastic, as Milton Bradley did at the end of last season. Hunter hurt his left knee jumping up and down when complaining a close play at first on his inning-...

The occasion was momentous for Alex Cora . The Red Sox starting shortstop had appeared in five prior postseason games for Boston without a single trip to the dish. Cora's run of non-hitting playoff games was the longest ever by a member of the Red Sox, but our man Gary (THE man, Gary) noted that...

Just wanted to pass along how we're going to be doing things tonight ... Alex Speier  and will be alternating between innings with one post per frame. If there is a scoring play (or other newsworthy item) we will break in and give you a flash. I know you cared. Dustin Pedroia was saying before the...

Imitation is indeed the sincerest form of flattery. The Angels put together three straight two-out hits of their own--a lined single to right by Mark Teixeira , a broken bat single by Vlad Guerrero and a Torii Hunter 12-hopper up the middle--to shave a run off the lead.

The Red Sox sustained the pressure on the Angels, with Jason Bay following J.D. Drew's RBI double by crushing a slider to straightaway centerfield for a three-run homer. The Bay Watch: Bay is tied 2-2 in homers with a certain former Red Sox left-fielder. During the regular season, Bay hit .256/.369...
