Cody Ross’ three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth helped the Red Sox steal a 3-1 victory from the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night. The bomb was Ross’ third three-run homer in the last two nights, but none was bigger than the one tonight.
Clay Buchholtz posted another solid outing for the Red Sox in his second start since returning from the DL. Buchholtz lasted eight innings, giving up six hits and his lone walk came around to score the White Sox only run of the game. A performance like this from the righty gives the Red Sox positive signs moving forward.
The Red Sox were being held in check through most of the game by rookie pitcher Jose Quintana, only totaling one hit through six innings. Quintana cruised until the seventh when the Red Sox were able to string together hits and load the bases. The rookie southpaw managed to work out of the jam after Will Middlebrooks hit into an inning ending double play. He left after eight innings in line for the vict...

BOSTON –– When Cody Ross sifted through offers in free agency, he scoped out the venues. And that's one reason Fenway Park stood out. Considering the dimensions of the storied ballpark, Ross –– a pull hitter –– believed his power numbers could spike compared to AT&T Park in San Francisco. In Wednesday's 10-1 victory, Ross' instincts proved correct as he...
Cody Ross' 5-year old son stood behind him as he sat at a podium during a postgame interview session, triggering him to recall when he first started to enjoy hitting in the clutch.

BOSTON -- Cody Ross smiled as he sat down, fresh off a three-run walk-off home run. Looking out at the group of reporters assembled in front of him, he couldn't suppress a smile. "I could get used to this," he declared with a Cheshire Cat grin. The Red Sox certainly could too, as Ross sent the team home happy on Thursday night with a 3-1 win over Chicago. It's the...
BOSTON -- Cody Ross' majestic walk-off blast on Thursday night had some Red Sox fans mapping out their World Series plans. Friday night's lackluster performance against the Blue Jays has those same fans gearing up for a long offseason. That's baseball. And "that's baseball" is all you can really chalk things up as after standing around the Boston clubhouse...
Cody Ross hit three separate three run homers in the last two games against the White Sox, while carrying the Red Sox to a series victory over Chicago. The series was marked by the return of two other All Star Outfielders with Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford making their way back into the lineup, but [...]
Editor's note: The temperature gauge is a Bill James-created statistic that measures how hot or cold hitters are. We will spotlight Red Sox and opposing team temperatures on game days. The Red Sox entered Friday's series opener against the Toronto Blue Jays on a torrid pace. A healthier version of the Red Sox lineup, bolstered by players returning from injury, had lifted...
BOSTON –– For the second time this season, the Red Sox celebrated a walk-off victory. The first time took place on May 26, when Jarrod Saltalamacchia blasted a game-winning home run against the Rays. Then, on Thursday, Cody Ross rose to the occasion, clubbing a three-run bomb to topple the White Sox. In each scenario, players swarmed the hero at home plate and mobbed him. Red...
The final game of the Sox vs. Sox series was tonight and Clay Buchholz was taking the mound for the Red Sox in hopes of them taking the series. Buchholz has seemingly figured out whatever it was that was bothering him earlier in the season and seems like that pitcher we knew and loved in 2010.
Buchholz unlike most of his fellow starting pitchers did not give up a run in the...
BOSTON -- Cody Ross has played his way into a new role on the team, even if it's temporary. He's the latest in a string of players that includes Pedro Ciriaco and Daniel Nava that has filled the void with David Ortiz out of the lineup. For the time being, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine likes Ross as the team's DH. "I think so far, it's been fine," Valentine...

One night after slamming White Sox pitchers for 10 runs, Chicago rookie lefthander Jose Quintana held the Red Sox to no runs through 8 innings on just 5 hits in a classic pitcher's duel against Clay Buchholz. That is, until Cody Ross took care of business in the bottom of the 9th inning with a 3-run blast deep into the Boston night over the Monster for a 3-1 Red Sox win.The...
Thursday was a successful day. A walk-off by Cody Ross brought that pick home. And when
you pick the Yankees to lose and they do, that is pretty good picking. The only three that
were incorrect came from the Game of Attrition between the Astros and the Padres where
one run scored would win the game. The wrong team did. And Gio Gonzalez seriously let
this picker down with a big...
As Cody Ross rounded third base after his walkoff home run on Thursday night, the Red Sox were there to greet with him hugs and cheers. But Nick Punto took on his alter-ego during the celebration and was intent on making the moment one to remember. Punto, who has been nicknamed "the shredder" for his role in past walkoff wins, has made quite an impact on his teammate, enough...
Just imagine the possibilities right now of where the Boston Red Sox could be if they were entirely healthy earlier in the season. And imagine what it could be like if Jon Lester and Josh Beckett pitched like they are capable of.
Yes right now the Red Sox are without David Ortiz and still haven't seen Andrew Bailey pitch yet this year but since the return of Jacoby Ellsbury...
