The Red Sox made two roster move Tuesday afternoon recalling outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr and right handed pitcher Brandon Workman from triple A Pawtucket. While Bradley Jr has seen time with the Red Sox on two separate occasion, Workman's recall marks the 24 year olds first trip to the major leagues. In corresponding transactions, the Red Sox optioned Jose De La Torre to Pawtucket and place Alex Wilson on the disabled list with a thumb injury. With a disheveled out field, it's easy to see why Bradley jr was recalled. After Monday nights outfield of Carp/Nava/Gomes, it was clear to see that the Red Sox needed to add defense while Jacoby Ellsbury recovers from a sore wrist. In his first 19 games with the Sox Bradley hit .154/.254/.269 over 52 at bats. More than offense though, Bradley Jr's defense is what the Sox are counting on in his temporary stay with the Sox and plan to utilize his speed on the base paths. Workman, on the other hand, has had quite a season. The 2...

The Red Sox had quite the game Tuesday night, and it’s no coincidence that David Ortiz had a big game, too.
The Boston designated hitter was once again the power behind the Sox’ attack, going 4-for-5 with a homer run as Boston racked up 16 hits and five home runs on its way to its 11-8 win over the Mariners.

The Red Sox broke out and in a big way on Tuesday night, as many of their fans on the East Coast slept the night away.
Boston bounced back after dropping the first game in Seattle to pound the Mariners 11-8 in the second game of the series, a game that started after 10 p.m. in the East and ended up lasting 3 hours and 44 minutes.
Part of the reason the game took so long, of course...

Would you rather be the Boston Red Sox, losers of three in a row but maintaining a 3.5-game lead in the AL East? Or the New York Yankees, winners of six-of-eight yet still five games back?
That’s what I thought. Everybody calm down.
The Red Sox (54-37) are going through their toughest stretch of the season, having blown a four-run ninth-inning...
The beginning of the game was rough to watch and then the game continued to drag on, so most of Red Sox Nation missed the end of the game, but if you were one of the few that stayed up to watch the whole game you saw an offensive explosion by both teams.

Two tough losses in Anaheim have put the Boston Red Sox (54-36) in a 1-2 hole to start the West Coast road trip. Typically, a series against the Seattle Mariners (39-49) is a relief for the Sox. But for a team struggling at the plate facing one of the game’s best pitchers (if not the best), tonight is not anticipated to be a strong night.
John Farrell and the Red Sox have three teams in hot pursuit. Who should they be most concerned about?
We head into the final week prior to the All-Star break with the Boston Red Sox holding a 4 ½ game lead in the AL East. The only team not in striking distance is Toronto, a distant ten games back, with three other teams to catch. It’s those middle trio that represent the challenge...

Ryan Lavarnway walked to open the 10th against Seattle's Tom Wilhelmsen (0-3) and was replaced by Bradley. Brady Holt...
