The Red Sox lost a tough one on Sunday after blowing a lead in the seventh. Manager John Farrell was ejected after arguing a questionable call by the umpires, and the Detroit Tigers capitalized on their momentum. Andrew Miller was called out to pitch in the seventh inning after Andrew Bailey pitched just 1/3 of an inning, but the move didn’t turn out as positively as the Sox might have hoped. The Tigers took a 7-4 lead and went on to win and take the series 3-1. Miller took responsibility after the game for putting the team in a hole they couldn’t climb out of. Hear what he had to say in the video above.

One year later; Why the Boston Red Sox made right move trading Kevin Youkilis

The man known as the “Greek God of Walks”, Kevin Youkilis was stable force in the Boston Red Sox lineup from 2006-2011. Many Red Sox were aggravated and questioned the team’s decision to trade the former three time All-Star last June 24 to the Chicago White Sox for a bag of balls in pitcher Zach Stewart and utility infielder Brent Lillibridge. Both never panned out for Boston...

Will Middlebrooks, Boston Red Sox third baseman, has sat on the bench in three of the last four games, as Jose Iglesias has manned the hot corner in his place.Due to such, the Providence Journal has suggested that Middlebrooks could be optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket as means to get the young slugger back on track.However, according to Red Sox manager John Farrell, Boston has no imminent...

Mike Napoli shows some skin at the plate

Boston Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli is not the first MLB player to leave the top buttons on his jersey undone. Plenty of guys do it on warm days without caring if they look like slobs, but there is usually an undershirt involved. On Sunday, Napoli took that entirely out of the equation. As [...]

Buchholz not likely to return Tuesday

Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz is not expected to start Tuesday, and there's no timetable for when the unbeaten right-hander might be ready to return from a strained neck. Buchholz (9-0) did not throw a bullpen session Saturday, although he did do some flat-ground work. He's been on the disabled list since June 9. "It's likely that at some point we're...

Alex Wilson’s Favorite Player Growing Up Was Nomar Garciaparra, Wishes He Could Play Shortstop in Majors (Video)

Before Alex Wilson got the call up to the Red Sox, he spent two successful seasons in Double-A Portland. Wilson was a starter for the Sea Dogs from 2010 to 2011 and was named to the Eastern League All-Star team. He was also named the Red Sox minor league pitcher of the year in 2011. So Wilson, who now works out of the bullpen for the Sox, was the perfect pick to field questions from...

Watch: Routine fly ball ends up costing the Red Sox the game.

credit bostonglobe.com How hard is it to catch a routine fly ball at the Major League level? The first thing you need to do a track the ball and get underneath it. Wait until the ball comes down and catch it, preferably with two hands and squeeze the glove. Seems easy enough, and if you are at the big league level it should be routine. Well, not in the case of Boston Red Sox right...

Red Sox Score Two Runs In First; Lose, 10-3

(Leon Halip/Getty Images)The Carmine Hose got to 10-game-winner Max Scherzer early—scoring two runs in the first. Unfortunately, Red Sox pitching gave back 10 and, viola', Scherzer was 11-0 and Boston was a 10-3 loser. Rookie Allen Webster gave up 5 runs on his own in just 4 1/3 innings—the second straight bad outing for one of the centerpieces of The Great Punto Deal. The...

Felix Doubront Wins Amica Pitcher of the Week Honors for Eight-Inning, Three-Hit Performance

Prior to Tuesday’s start, Felix Doubront had never pitched into the eighth inning. He made it all the way through the eighth against the Rays in his latest start, yet didn’t earn the win for his efforts. Doubront struck out six in his best start of the year, allowing three hits and zero walks in eight shutout innings. He lowered his ERA from 4.91 to 4.38 in the impressive outing...

MASH Unit: Buchholz can't go; Ross sent home; Nava battling through

The Guru Contributing Writer Clay Buchholz will not be coming off the disabled list Tuesday as the Red Sox had hoped. Buchholz was scheduled to throw in the bullpen Saturday, but he was still dealing with neck pain and only threw in the outfield. Buchholz has been on the DL since June 9 with a sore right trapezius muscle. With Buchholz unable to go, he will need at least a one...

Blown Ump's Call Results In Red Sox Loss, 7-5

(AP Photo/Duane Burleson)If Bud Selig needs any more evidence of the need for expanded instant replay, today's game is Exhibit A. Daniel Nava clearly made a legal catch (losing the ball on the transfer) that was ruled a drop by the entire inept umpiring crew. John Farrell legitimately argued the call and got his first ejection as Red Sox manager. The blown call led to a series...

Sox handle Verlander, but still lose

Jim Monaghan Contributing writer The Tigers came from behind to beat the Red Sox 7-5 on Sunday afternoon at Comerica Park, but the score doesn't even begin to tell the story of what took place. The Red Sox got to Detroit starter Justin Verlander for four runs on seven hits over five innings; they made him work, too, with 112 pitches. With the Tigers leading 2-0 in the top...

Power Papi

Sean Riley Contributing Writer As of late its been the Red Sox bullpen that has been the weakest link and most inconsistent part of the team. Since April 20th, the MOST consistent thing coming from the Red Sox was their designated hitter, David Ortiz. Making another run as an All-Star starter, Big Papi has been lighting it up all over the diamond. The 37 year old slugger has five...

Game 78: Red Sox at Tigers - Trying to earn a split

Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer A night after scoring 10 runs, the Boston Red Sox (45-32) and their bats went cold and the Detroit Tigers (41-32) trounced the Sox, 10-3, to take a 2-1 series lead.

Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer After splitting the first two games, the Boston Red Sox (45-31) and Detroit Tigers (40-32) tangle in tonight’s Game 3 from Comerica Park.
