The Red Sox are going for a sweep the night after a walk-off home run that included a helmet punt. Also, theyâ€™re second fiddles in Boston.
Itâ€™s a tough time to be a fan of Boston sports for those who only have access to one television at a time, as the Bruins fight on in the Stanley Cup Final and leave the first-place Sox on somewhat of a back burner. Thatâ€™s not to say that...
It was a long day that included 18 innings of baseball for the Red Sox. However, when Jonny Gomes launched one over the Green Monster to give Boston its second win of the day, no one remembered how tired were.
After the game, the Red Sox posted the below picture to Instagram, and itâ€™s pretty amazing. The image captures the Red Sox bench watching Gomesâ€™ home run clear the fence...
If Clay Buchholz doesn't throw in the bullpen Tuesday, he's likely headed for the disabled list. Buchholz is still experiencing pain in his neck.

That' a lot of "...

Andrew Bailey is the Red Soxâ€™ closer.
Bailey, who blew another save opportunity in the second game of Tuesdayâ€™s doubleheader, is in the midst of a rough patch. Manager John Farrell made it clear, however, that the closerâ€™s job still belongs to Bailey, and that itâ€™s simply a matter of the right-hander figuring some things out on the mound.
â€œAndrew Bailey is our closer, and...
