Koji Uehara entered Saturday night's game against the Los Angeles Angels hoping he'd get one more chance to make the AL All-Star team because of the last-chance fan ballot.

Craig Breslow then gave up a two-run homer in the 11th by Hamilton that gave the Angels a 9-7 victory and snapped Boston's five-game winning streak. ''Unfortunately, I brought Koji into a spot where he had no room to maneuver, and they got a couple of hits off the end of the bat,'' Farrell said. ''All in all, it was just a tough game to lose. But we've had games like th...

John Lackey Looks to Help Red Sox Bounce Back After Tough Loss in Extra Innings

The Red Sox are in need of a pick-me-up after a devastating 9-7 extra-inning loss against the Angels on Saturday night. Luckily for Boston, it will send one of its hottest starting pitchers to the mound in John Lackey, as it tries to bounce back out west. Lackey (6-5) has been solid for over a month now, as he hasn’t lost a start since May 29 and has earned a win in three of his...

Pete LepakRedSoxLife Staff Writer Game 89 I had the whole article written by the eighth inning. I knew this game was over, and as it approached 2am, my eyes began to get heavy as I waited for the game to end. Unfortunately for the Red Sox and Ryan Dempster, Boston blew their 4 run lead in the ninth and lost it in the 11th. While Dempster pitched well enough for the win, his bullpen...

On a crisp Sunday night in Anaheim, the Angels and Red Sox played under the lights on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball. Just days after Angels’ ace Jered Weaver‘s wife gave birth to their first son Aden, Weaver looked like his former self: going 6 2/3 innings, giving up five hits, striking out six, and giving up 0 earned runs.  Weaver’s counterpart was ex-teammate John ...

Sox top Padres

I missed the first eight and a half innings of tonight’s game because I was in class: graduate school started yesterday and we’ve hit the ground running. Of course, I surreptitiously monitored the progress of the Red Sox as consistently as possible, and was thrilled every time I checked in by the excellent start from John Lackey. You can’t script it any better than this: the...

Report: Red Sox Open to ‘Possible Trade-Market Upgrades’ in Bullpen, at Third Base

There are inevitably going to be a lot of rumors leading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, and this one is rather vague. It’s still worth passing along, though, as it gives an indication of what the Red Sox might be looking for while trying to improve their roster. According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, the Red Sox are open to “possible trade-market upgrades” in the...

The Guru Contributing Writer It was late night drama at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. Apparently the Rally Monkey is a night owl.

With the game in hand in the bottom of the ninth 7-3, Red Sox reliever Alex Wilson loaded the bases and Sox...
