Jim Rogash/Getty ImagesIf you look closely at the scoreboard in our new FN masthead, you'll see it shows Texas scoring 5 runs in the top of the first inning. Well, Texas scored five runs tonight as well—unfortunately for them, the Red Sox bested them by 12. Boston walloped 19 hits—12 of them for extra bases—in a 17-5 romp over the Rangers tonight at Fenway. The Carmine Hose hit for a 'team cycle' in the second, but failed to score in the eighth, preventing them from becoming only the 14th MLB to score in every inning of a game. Where do we start? How about home runs? They were clouted by Jackie Bradley, Jr. (his first ever), Stephen Drew, Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Mike Carp. Drew was 4-5 with 2 RBIs raising his season average to .232. Jose Iglesias had two more hits and is now hitting .431 on the year. Daniel Nava, Carp, and Saltalamacchia each had three hits. Ryan Dempster was the beneficiary of this onslaught—going seven solid innings and giving up three earned runs.

The Red Sox got their first ejection of the season, and Mike Carp the first of his career, in a very strange series of events during last night’s game against the Texas Rangers.
With a 12-run deficit in the bottom of the eighth, the Rangers decided not to waste any more relievers and sent left fielder (and former Red Sock) David Murphy to the mound...
Mike Carp hit a home run against the Rangers on Tuesday night as the Red Sox poured on 17 runs against the Rangers. Unfortunately, that won’t be the enduring memory of the outfielder after this one.
It will more likely than not be Carp’s eighth-inning at-bat that is remembered, because it came against non-pitcher David Murphy and it ended with a strikeout. It’s a moment that...
The rain was what sent the Yankees and Red Sox off the field and into the dugouts at Yankee Stadium on Sunday night. The thunder was what kept them there.
Both the Red Sox and Yankees could be seen getting collectively freaked out by a huge clap of thunder as the players sat in their respective dugouts and waited for the game to resume. It was all for naught — the game was called...
CRACKS A SMILE
Your browser does not support iframes. The Texas Rangers were getting beat by the Boston Red Sox so badly on Tuesday night, manager Ron Washington decided to spare his pitchers and let a position player hurl an inning during their 17-5 loss. That player was outfielder David Murphy, who turned out to have more success [...]
Jarrod Saltalamacchia teaches how to properly block the plate on a play at home.
Last night's Texas Rangers/Boston Red Sox game got a little out of hand as the Red Sox lead by the score of 17-5 in the eighth inning.
The Rangers decided to let outfielder David Murphy throw some relief innings and he got his first career strikeout.
Watch as David gets Red Sox outfielder Mike Carp with a 67-mph pitch and has a chuckle about it:

When a team is getting absolutely manhandled in a baseball game, it isn’t too uncommon to see that team’s manager give his pitchers some rest by giving a willing position player the chance to throw on the bump. That’s exactly what happened last night when Ron Washington’s Rangers were taking a beating from the Sox.
Washington sent former Red Sox outfielder David Murphy (who...

The rout was on early last night, as the Red Sox handed the Rangers a Texas sized beat down. The win was the third in a row for the Sox and proved that they can play with the big boys from the West Coast. The Sox offense got started early, scoring in the first inning but the big offense came in the 2nd when the team scored 6 runs on only 6 hits....
Somebody must have messed up an order. The fireworks arrived in Boston a month early.
The Red Sox put on quite the show at Fenway Park on Tuesday, beating the one team that has dominated them this season by double-digits.
Boston plated runs in each of the first seven innings, including home runs in the second, fourth, fifth and sixth, to score more runs in one night than the Rangers...
John Lackey may not have gotten the win Wednesday night, but the right-hander impressed his teammates and coaches with yet another quality start.
In six innings of work, Lackey allowed just one run — a home run by former teammate Adrian Beltre — on five hits and zero walks. Starts like this have been the norm for the veteran for nearly a month, as he’s allowed just four total...
On Sunday night, the Yankees and Red Sox game was delayed three times because of scattered thunderstorms. During the third delay, a select few from both teams decided to wait out the delay under the safe awning of the dugout until thunder and lightning struck a little to close to home. The dugout cam from both ends captures players jumping in shock, holding each other frightfully...

John Lackey is probably feeling pretty frustrated right now. Last night was just the latest of his quality starts in which he received little run support. Jarrod Saltalamacchia had plenty of praise for Lackey after the game. Salty told reporters that all it really came down to was one pitch, according to NESN. That one pitch was a solo shot to for Red Sox...
Jose Iglesias vs. Stephen Drew, young vs. old, rookie vs. veteran. No matter how you want to look at it the bottom line is John Farrell has a decision to make at the shortstop position. With Will Middlebrooks recovery going according to plan he will be returning from the disabled list as scheduled. That being said, Iglesias' time playing third...
The Red Sox greeted the Texas Rangers with an 19-hit attack in a 17-5 rout at Fenway Park on Tuesday night.
Boston got on the board quickly with two runs in the bottom of the first inning on an RBI double by David Ortiz and an RBI groundout by Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Pretty much the entire lineup got into the action as the Sox pounded out eight...
