Mookie's 5-hit night a footnote as Sox miss chances

What should have been an occasion for Mookie Betts to celebrate the first five-hit game of his career was instead another night for the Red Sox to wonder why they are having such difficulty cashing in on scoring opportunities.

Aly Raisman throws out first pitch at Red Sox game

Aly Raisman brought the three medals she won at the Olympics in Rio to Fenway Park on Friday night to throw out the first pitch of the game. Raisman is from Needham, Mass., so it made sense that she would open the team’s game against the Royals. She had some fun with it, taking her medals and hanging them around David Ortiz’s neck. She bounced the pitch, but that’s OK, because...

Red Sox target key relief innings for Buchholz

Clay Buchholz is going back to the Red Sox's bullpen, but this time, the righty is likely to be used in high-leverage situations. In recent weeks, the Red Sox have struggled mightily to hold leads in the eighth inning, and Buchholz could get some opportunities to hand the ball to closer Craig Kimbrel.

The Red Sox have found a playoff-caliber rotation

Welcome to Friday, it’s party night! We’re going to start by playing Spin The Bottle. This is a bit different than the version of the game you probably know.

'Wright' On Time, Knuckleballer Returns To Face Royals

Wright (L) And Wright (R)For a big part of this season—before Rick Porcello emerged as the #1 ace—Steven Wright was the most consistent Boston starter. Even during a bad stretch of pitching in July, he went 4-0 in six starts. It's been that kind of year for the soon-to-be 32-year-old (13-5, 3.01 ERA), who is no longer confused with the Boston-based comic of the same name (although...

Andrew Benintendi on DL but it's too early to tell if injury is season-ending

There’s no way to sugar coat it: The Boston Red Sox received some pretty bad news Thursday. Rookie left fielder Andrew Benintendi exited Wednesday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays with an ugly left knee sprain, and after tests the next morning, the Red Sox already sent him to the 15-day disabled list. “He did have an MRI (Thursday) morning and that exam and images are still...

To Win it All, What are the Red Sox Missing?

As of Thursday morning, the Red Sox sit atop the American League East with the Toronto Blue Jays. As it stands, the Sox would have a chance at the World Series. Yet, it’s hard to predict the Red Sox chances of advancing to game 163. Look at the 2011 collapse. The beer and chicken scandal; a last place finish; a manager fired; a major disappointment. That same kind of disappointment...

Andrew Benintendi shares how he made great catch

Andrew Benintendi’s home run-robbing catch Monday was an immediate nominee for play of the year. But how exactly does a 22-year-old rookie outfielder pull off such a feat? The catch helped the Boston Red Sox seal a 6-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays, and prevented things from getting too close for comfort — Boston led just 3-0 at the time, and the shot would’ve plated...

Benintendi's catch helps Price, Red Sox tie for 1st place

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) David Price was good, even better because of a rookie's nifty glove work. Boston's ace won his third straight decision Monday night, beating the Tampa Bay Rays 6-2 with a huge assist from Andrew Benintendi's home run-robbing catch that helped Price limit his old team to just two hits over eight scoreless innings. Price (12-8) walked two, struck out eight...

Andrew Benintendi makes unbelievable catch to steal a homer against the Rays

Boston Red Sox rookie outfielder Andrew Benintendi made a catch that was just absolutely absurd. The ed Sox are on the road in Tampa, and with a runner on first in the eighth inning of Monday night’s game, Rays second baseman Logan Forsythe hit one to deep left that was certainly on its way out of the park. Benintendi had other plans, and made an amazing leaping effort to rob...
