Bob DeChiara/USA TODAY Sports Tuesday: Boston Red Sox 13,                      Baltimore Orioles 2 Win: Felix Doubront (10-7)                          Loss: Wei-Yin Chen (7-7) After performing well on the West Coast, the Boston Red Sox returned home Tuesday night to face a tough and gritty Baltimore Orioles team. Felix Doubront toed the rubber opposite Wei-Yin Chen and for Doubront, home cooking was exactly what he needed. In six and two-thirds innings, he gave up only four hits and two runs (both earned) while walking only one batter and striking out seven. For Chen, the opposite occurred as he surrendered eight hits and eight runs (all earned) while walking three batters and striking out five in three and two thirds innings of work. Boston struck first in the bottom of the first as Shane Victorino walked to begin things. After Dustin Pedroia doubled, David Ortiz collected his 79th RBI of the year as he hit a deep ball that produced a long out, long enough to scor

REPORT: NYY Could Be 'Wild Card' On Ellsbury

The HorrorAccording to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, The Evil Empire (AKA The Pinstriped Posers, Evil Ones, Bronx Embalmers) could be a "wild card" contender for the free agency services of Jacoby Ellsbury.

Clay Buchholz One Step Closer to Returning After Positive Rehab Start With Triple-A Pawtucket

According to Clay Buchholz, one more rehab start could do the trick. Buchholz, who was shaky in his first rehab appearance with Single-A Lowell on Sunday, took a step forward during a rehab outing with Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday. He wasn’t perfect, but it might be time to circle Sept. 10 on your calendar, as it appears the right-hander is on track to start that night for the...

Ryan Dempster Shines in First Return to Mound Since Suspension, Makes Most Out of Extra Rest

In Ryan Dempster’s last start, he let his pitching do the talking for him and it landed him a five-game suspension, and possibly cost him a win. On Friday night, Dempster let the pitching do the talking for him again, only this time out, the right-hander battled to a victory and no benches cleared. In Dempster’s start against the Yankees, he attempted to take matters into his...

Fenway Ennui—Why Are Sox Fans So Bored?

Fenway Ennui?Jon Tomase of The Boston Herald raises an interesting question. If the first-place Red Sox are such a hot ticket—with their Idiots II demeanor and 20-last-at-bat wins—how come they can't sell out Fenway Park on a late August night against a division rival? Yesterday's thrilling 4-3 comeback win drew just 31,962 (5,531 below the 37,493 capacity) in what was...

Red Sox have the most expensive beer in baseball

The Guru Contributing Writer Beer at baseball games is pricey. Anyone attending Fenway Park can attest that. However, a new study from Team Marketing Report reveals the Red Sox have the most expensive suds in baseball. Domestic beers at Fenway Park run at $.60 an ounce or about seven bucks. The more discerning palate with a taste for an IPA will pay about $9. In a Red Sox Life...

Recap: Orioles stave off sweep in 3-2 win

Tonight's performance by Jon Lester was a good example why the term "quality start" is so problematic. Technically, he registered one: six innings, three runs, three walks, five hits, four K's. Blah. It didn't really feel like quality out there, but I guess holding the opponent to three runs (especially when your bullpen maintains the lead) should be enough...
