  • That was an eye popping play by Stewart, I have never seen a play quite like that in all the years I've watched this game. The game itself was strange with 3 outs recorded at home plate and that play just topped them all. You rarely see a game in the pinball machine that Fenway Park is where no homeruns are hit and so many close plays are made at home.

Jacoby Ellsbury Looks Poised for Second-Half Power Surge After Going Deep Again in Win Over Yankees

The All-Star Game/Home Field Debate: the arguments, the stats, and possible alternatives

Ryan Dempster Takes Over Jon Lester’s Spot in Rotation As Red Sox Take on Yankees in Rubber Match

Sunday was supposed to be Jon Lester‘s turn in the Red Sox rotation, but his first start since the All-Star break was pushed back until Tuesday night in order to give the lefty some more time off.

VIDEO: Unbelievable double play by Chris Stewart
