I failed to mention before that Dustin Pedroia has never won a batting title, although I have to take him at his word. (The Pac-10 stat men can expect a call.) In his fourth at-bat Pedroia grounded out to second on the first pitch, watching his batting average dip to .325. Joe Mauer is 2 for 2...

Cleveland's No. 9 hitter Josh Barfield broke up Jon Lester's no-hitter on a 0-1 single to left. Barfield, who spent the majority of the season at Triple Buffalo batting .251, had been 0 for 6 this season against lefties coming into tonight. It also made Paul Jarvey of the Worcester Telegram and...

Before we get to the fact that Jon Lester is vying to become the first pitcher since Nolan Ryan in 1973 (Kansas City and Detroit) to throw two no-hitters in a season (the only time in the last 56 years), let me pass along the words of old friend Brendan Donnelly said that every time he faces Alex...

Grady Sizemore was hit by a Jon Lester pitch, giving the Indians 101 hits batsmen for the season, breaking a major league record. For Lester it was the 10th batter he hit this season. The Red Sox record is 77 times, set in 1909. In terms of recent bruises incurred, the 2002 Red Sox are third on the...

Jon Lester just walked Kelly Shoppach , which makes me want to take note of something. This guy has become pretty darn pitch efficient. The lefty has walked four or more batters just four times this season in 32 games, a total he equaled in just 12 appearances a year ago. Obviously it starts with...

Before you even think about watching Jon Lester go for his 16th win of the season, make sure you read Alex Speier's fine piece on how the Red Sox went to Indians coach Scott Radinsky for an idea of what it was like to come back to the major leagues after battling cancer. From the story: '€œ...

GAME RECAP HERE . PAUL BYRD - allowed four runs in five innings and did not receive a decision ON HIS NIGHT: When my team spots me with a four-run lead in the first off a pretty good pitcher, that game's got to be over. I have to take command and take control and not let them back in it. So that's...

Manny Delcarmen worked his way out of a leadoff walk to Grady Sizemore , locking down the lead in the ninth for his career-high second save of the season. Delcarmen, it is widely believed, has closer's stuff, but was asked to save just six games in the minors. He is on a particularly impressive run...

Jeff Bailey seemed an improbable candidate to triple and score the go-ahead run for the Red Sox in the bottom of the eighth inning. For starters, he wasn't in the game--the Sox brought him in as a pinch-hitter for Jonathan Van Every. And, of course, Bailey--a converted catcher--doesn't exactly fit...
