Beckett Falters and Sox Fall to Yanks

The Red Sox bats finally showed up, but unfortunately it would be at the same time that Beckett had one of the worst first innings of his career and a hiccup by the bullpen to allow the Yanks to take the first game of the series. Josh Beckett was just dreadful in the first inning.  Horrible.  Bad.  No good.  Beckett gave up 3 runs before getting a single out.  By the end of...

Big early lead fails to help Kuroda

Hiroki Kuroda entered Friday night as one of the hottest pitchers in baseball, but as many pitchers before him have found out, Fenway Park can bring any hot streak to an end.

Do the Red Sox Have a Better Chance Now of Making the Playoffs Than They Did on Opening Day?
