It surprised me to look at the Red Sox record against the National League this season and see that the Rockies are only the second team from the NL that we have played. We currently have a record of 3-2 against the NL this year and last night was an exciting win for the Sox. They belted out 20 hits and plated 11 runs. Starting pitcher Ryan Dempster got the run support that he needed to get another well deserved win. Here are the 3 stars of the game:
Star 3: Mike Napoli
As we approach the midseason point of the year Napoli is starting to slow off his early season pace but is still putting up great numbers. Last night he went 2-4 with 2 RBI's, increasing his season total to 52 on the season.
Star 2: Ryan Dempster
Dempster continued to pitch well for the Sox this season with his outing last night. He earned his 5th win increasing his record to 5-8 on the season. He pitched 6 innings allowing only 2 runs on 6 hits. He struck out 4 and walked 2. It ...

It’s been a feast-or-famine situation when Red Sox starter Ryan Dempster is looking for run support from his teammates this season.
Last night, it was a feast of epic proportions.
The Sox ripped a season-high 20 hits and scored 11 runs against the visiting Colorado Rockies to lift Dempster (5-8) to the win.
Dempster, for his part,...
(Jim Rogash/Getty Images)Ryan Dempster must be wondering why the Red Sox can't support him like this all the time. Boston pounded out a season-high twenty hits on the way to smiting the Rockies at Fenway, 11-4. Four different Red Sox players collected three hits (Dustin Pedroia, Daniel Nava, Jacoby Ellsbury, Jose Iglesias), while Pedroia knocked in four runs in the rout. Dempster...
8 a.m. ET: For the first time since the 2007 World Series, the Colorado Rockies will take the field at Fenway Park on Tuesday.
The Red Sox have met the Rockies just once since sweeping them to win their most recent championship — a three-game series at Coors Field in 2010 — and outside of two-time All-Star Troy Tulowitzki and longtime Minnesota Twin Michael Cuddyer, much of the...
Dustin Pedroia is bad news for the Blue Jays.
Pedroia is hitting .381 (16-for-42) against Toronto pitching this season, and he capped of a seven-run second Thursday night with a two-run home run. The touchdown-outburst proved to be all Boston needed in the series opener at Fenway Park, as the club rode a strong pitching effort by Jon Lester to a 7-4 win.
To hear what Pedroia had...
The Boston Red Sox rebounded nicely after the tough weekend series in Detroit as they returned home and swept the Colorado Rockies in a brief two game series. Both games saw the Red Sox get quality starting pitching from Ryan Dempster on Tuesday night and John Lackey on Wednesday afternoon. Dempster went six strong innings allowing just two runs and striking out four Rockies to...
Run support continues to come at a premium for Ryan Dempster, and it's not helping his record.
He could especially use some offense from his Boston Red Sox teammates Tuesday night when they face the red-hot Michael Cuddyer and Colorado Rockies in the teams' first meeting at Fenway Park since Boston swept the 2007 World Series.
Dempster (4-8, 4.23 ERA) has lost three of...
Dustin Pedroia drove in four runs and had three of Boston's season-high 20 hits, and Ryan Dempster took advantage of an early cushion that kept getting bigger for the Red Sox in their 11-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.
Mike Napoli added two RBIs and Jacoby Ellsbury, Daniel Nava and Jose Iglesias joined Pedroia with three hits apiece as the Red Sox gave...
The Red Sox were due for a solid offensive night at Fenway Park.
The team combined for 11 runs in a rout of the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night. The Sox tallied a season-high 20 hits to snap a two-game losing streak, with all nine starters recording hits in the game.
The offense was backed up by the defense, though, with Ryan Dempster giving up just two runs in six innings to...
Welcome home, Red Sox.
The American League-leading Boston Red Sox (45-33) return to Fenway Park for nine-game home-stand and get it kicked off with an interleague matchup against the Colorado Rockies (39-38). The Sox and Rox clash at Fenway for the first time since the 2007 World Series, when the Red Sox swept the first two games on their way to...
Despite dropping three out of four games in Detroit over the weekend, the Red Sox begin their eight game homestand in first place by two and half games and welcome the surprising Colorado Rockies to Fenway Park for a brief two game series. This series will mark the first both teams have faced each other in Boston since Game 1 and 2 of the 2007 World Series, in which the Red Sox won...

Not many people would have told you at the beginning of the season that our top 2 starters, Jon Lester and Clay Bucholzm would be going through serious issues in June.
"They're both perfectly fine and pitching great," you might have said.
Well, I would have said the same thing, but I couldn't forsee Clay Bucholz's imjury problems...

After John Lackey struck out 12 to complete the two-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies, Jon Lester faces the Blue Jays in hopes the momentum will lift him up, as well.
While Ryan Dempster and Lackey put together solid performances against the Rockies, the Boston bats heated up, too. Wednesday night’s win makes for the fifth straight game the Sox have put up 10 or more hits.
The Red Sox didn't have to worry about their biggest weakness tonight, as the game was put away before the bullpen got involved.
Boston won 11-4 while compiling 20 hits off four Rockies pitchers. Juan Nicasio started, but lasted just two and a third innings as the Sox pummeled him for 12 hits and seven runs. Each ensuing reliever walked at least one, gave up multiple hits, and...
