Since the final month of the disastrous 2011 season, the Baltimore Orioles have been a thorn in the side of The Carmine Hose. Even this year, Boston is just 4-6 against the Birds as they fly into Fenway for a three-game set. The Red Sox will send 9-6 lefty Felix Doubront to the mound tonight to face fellow port-sider Wei-Yin Chen. John Lackey will take to the hill on Wednesday night against former Astro Bud Norris, while the rejuvenated Jon Lester will face off against Chris Tillman on Thursday. Hey, at least the "curse-carrying" Robert Andino isn't wearing orange and black anymore!

John Lackey Says Goal Is for Team to Win Games, Not Concerned About Individual Record (Video)

Despite John Lackey recording his 17th quality start of the season, he walks away with the no-decision Wednesday night after giving up three runs on seven hits in 7 1/3 innings of work. The ND doesn’t mean much to the right-hander, however, as he was less concerned about his individual record and just happy the team was able to come away with a win after staging a late-inning comeback...

Felix Doubront Hopes to Build Off Strong Outing in San Francisco As Red Sox Return Home (Video)

A streak of impressive outings for Felix Doubront ended on Aug. 10, when the left-hander lasted just four innings a Red Sox loss to the Royals. He was shaky again against the Yankees a week later, getting shelled for seven runs on eight hits in four frames. Doubront finally regained his form last Wednesday, though, tossing an eight-inning gem in San Francisco to lead the Sox in a...

Felix Doubront Limits Damage in Third Inning Before Rolling to Easy Win (Video)

Felix Doubront looked like he may have been headed toward trouble early in what turned out to be a blowout win for the Red Sox. With the Sox leading 1-0 in the top of the third inning, Doubront allowed the first four Orioles batters to reach base. The lefty surrendered singles to J.J. Hardy and Danny Valencia before hitting No. 9 hitter Steve Pearce and walking Brian Roberts with...

Red Sox-Orioles Live: Felix Doubront Takes Hill As Sox Open Nine-Game Homestand Against Baltimore

12 p.m.: The Red Sox can go a long way in squashing the playoff hopes of one of their division rivals starting Tuesday night in Boston. The Sox return home from a West Coast road trip Monday night to host the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park. The O’s come into Boston having lost eight of their last 14 games, and they begin the day 5 1/2 games back of the Red Sox in the American...

Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad

  My man Red gets the prize for predicting the Sox would take two out of three in the post-trade grudge match with the Dodgers. This was during our recent podcast where I believe he also predicted apes would indeed rule the world and that John Lackey was still on pace to win 20 games. It just goes to show you, you never know what you’ll miss during one of our nationally despised...

Game 132: Red Sox vs. Dodgers - Will Carl eat his words? We hope so!

Scott Levesque Managing Editor Well what do you know. It looks like Jon Lester has decided to awaken from his slumber and show Red Sox fans why he's still the "Ace" on this team.  Once again, Lester pitched a gem when the Red Sox needed him the most, leading the Sox to a 4-2 win over the hottest team in the ML, the Dodgers. Now Farrell turns to the team's key acquisition ...

Recap: Sox kick off homestand with 13-2 drubbing of O's

The Red Sox beat the Orioles in every possible way tonight, topping Baltimore 13-2. Starter Felix Doubront easily outdueled his opponent, Wei-Yen Chen. This is less a compliment to Felix -- who was fine, giving up two runs in six-plus innings -- than a criticism of Chen, who was awful. He yielded eight runs to the Sox and couldn't get out of the 4th inning.  That leads us...

Boston Red Sox finish West Coast trip in style against Dodgers

  In one of their most exciting series of the year with so much swirling around the big Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers trade from the last August, Boston got the edge this time around. Pitching for the Red Sox dominated the series as John Lackey, Jon Lester and Jake Peavy all turned in solid performances as Boston took two out of three from the Dodgers in their first trip...

Xander Bogaerts Gets Start at Third, Makes Home Debut as John Lackey Takes the Mound

The Red Sox opened their nine-game homestand Monday night in a big way. Shane Victorino led the way with two home runs and a career-high seven-RBI performance en route to a 13-2 victory over the Orioles in the series opener. The Red Sox came out swinging, and they look to do the same Tuesday night sending out almost the identical lineup, with one sensational rookie marking the only...

Your Morning Dump...where the rotation is carrying the team

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
