Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester was beginning his delivery of the 0-1 pitch when Headley asked for time and was permitted time by umpire Doug Eddings. However, Lester threw the pitch anyway and hit Headley on the left ankle, making for an unusual moment. Headley was able to continue his at-bat after taking a minute or so to shake off the pain, and he closed out the at-bat with a single, giving him some measure of revenge. Unfortunately, the Red Sox got the last laugh with a 2-1 walk-off victory over the Padres. Video via MLB. Visit us at holdoutsports.com and follow us on Twitter @HoldoutSports.

If you were, then you were absolutely wrong. The Red Sox are 85 games into the 2013 season and Victorino is having...

Four Real? Walk Off Hero! Red Sox vs Padres 7-3-13

Pete Lepak RedSoxLife Staff Writer  Game 86 Boston, Ma-  By name, a Jon Lester versus Edinson Volquez matchup would be a game I wouldn't want to miss. This year, however, it might be ok to change the channel. Lester (4.61 ERA)  and Volquez (5.88 ERA)  have struggled in the first half of the 2013 season, but both brought their vintage stuff to pitch quality starts and...

While You Were Drinking: Game 84 (SD vs. BOS)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. The Padres dropped the opener at Fenway Park by a score of 4-1. John Lackey looked like his old self and Robbie Erlin couldn’t quite get the Sox to fish for what he was offering.

Game 85: Padres at Red Sox - Sox staying hot at home

Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer Another month of the season has come and gone, but one thing remains the same: The Boston Red Sox are the American League’s best team.

Comparing “The Streaks”

As I sit here and type this up the Padres are down 6-2 to the Nationals in the 4th inning. Starter Andrew Cashner is long gone and twice the Padres have had runners in scoring position with less than 2 outs and not been able to score. The bright side?
