Clay Buchholz was raised in Lumberton, Texas, so he knows a thing or two about the southwestern heat. And perhaps that's why he was able to make it through seven innings and 105 pitches of one-run baseball in the Red Sox 2-1 win on Tuesday. The right-hander admits that the heat is a factor every time the team travels to the Ballpark in Arlington, but he also says that it affected him more in the dugout than out on the field. Either way, Buchholz was able to continue to pitch effectively deep into the game, giving a huge lift to...
BEST OF MAXIM
Just like Ben Cherington drew it up in the offseason, RBIs from Kelly Shoppach and Mike Aviles led to Boston's only offense in a pitcher's duel in Arlington.
Clay Buchholz threw yet another strong start. He stifled the Rangers' offense to four hits over seven innings. He did give up one run, and had some command issues, allowing three walks. He also didn't dominate...

Will Middlebrooks had a fun time in Texas. The rest of the Red Sox, not so much. Boston dropped a tough loss on Wednesday to the Rangers, ending a road trip through the Lone Star state on a bad note. Middlebrooks, however, enjoyed a return to his hometown state by batting .500 over the course of the three games. If only the rest of the Sox offense was as hot. In any case, NESN Nation...
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. Maybe Adrian Gonzalez needed to get loose. Whatever it was, the star first baseman for the Red Sox is now hitting the best he has all season. He has the highest mark on Boston's temperature...
As he nears 1,000 career strikeouts, Jon Lester his having the worse season of his career which is overshadowing all other things. Then, when it seemed as though Lester could not pitch any worse this season, his outing Sunday afternoon happened.
Lester allowed career-highs in both home runs with four and earned runs with 11 over just four innings, dooming the Red...

Boston general manager Ben Cherrington has gone on the record stating that the Red Sox would consider making sizable moves prior to the July 31st trade deadline.
According to Joe McDonald of ESPNBoston, one such bold move would be the acquisition of ace Josh Johnson from the Miami Marlins.
McDonald writes regarding Boston’s pitching woes: “The Red Sox have scored a major league...
With the Roy Oswalt battling a back injury, the Texas Rangers threw out Scott Feldman to make the spot start against the Boston Red Sox last night. Feldman had struggled this season but the Red Sox made him look like Cy Young last night in a 9-1 loss.
The only run the Red Sox would manage off of Feldman over his seven innings was a Jarrod Saltalmacchia solo home run in the 2nd...
The rivalry between the Red Sox and Yankees is arguably the most heated and historic in all of sports. When thinking about it, images of Jason Varitek and Alex Rodriguez brawling or Pedro Martinez tossing Don Zimmer probably race through your head. Is it possible to fit Ichiro into the equation? The former Mariners outfielder says he is looking forward to it.
“When I watched those...
For a while, it felt like the Red Sox were being singled out. Boston's dealt with its fair share of injuries in the 2012 season, but as the year goes on, more and more teams are dealing with many of the same problems. The Yankees will be without Alex Rodriguez for a while and the Blue Jays are now coming to grips to life without catcher J.P. Arencibia. That means that not only...
The Cleveland Indians have acquired Brent Lillibridge from the Boston Red Sox for minor-league pitcher Jose De La Torre.

The 28-year-old Lillibridge has hit .212 in 295 games for Atlanta, the Chicago White Sox and Boston. He was dealt by Chicago to the Red Sox on June...

Game time is at 8:05pm EST. The game will be on NESN and in some areas on MLB Network.
The July 31 trade deadline is quickly approaching. With the second wild card added this year, many teams that normally wouldn't be in contention find themselves in the thick of the playoff hunt and the competition for help is getting fierce. The Red Sox may be a .500 team entering Wednesday, but with a new arm in the rotation, they could make a run at a postseason berth. Josh...
No. Charlie Moore will not be making a guest appearance anywhere in this column. Sorry to disappoint all those loyal NESN viewers out there. And while this article will deal mostly with the Miami Marlins roster, I’ll do my best to refrain from employing endless fishing clichés. The Red Sox have encountered some rough waters [...]
