Last time The Sox lost 2 out of 3 to the Yankees a couple of weeks ago at Yankee Stadium. Jon Lester earned the only win in the series, and got huge back-up from Pedro Ciriaco, who went 4-for-4. Even though he is labeled as a "Yankee Killer", that 4-for-4 performance was sandwiched by a pair of 0-for-3 performances. Adrian Gonzalez hit a pair of home runs in that series, but that doesn't matter anymore. This time Laser Show: Pedro Ciriaco
Once again, he is the "Yankee Killer". Ciriaco has a career (8 games) .469 average, 1.110 OPS, 3 doubles, 1 triple, 7 RBI, and 4 steals against the Yankees. I like those numbers.
Pitch Around: Curtis Granderson

This SOB has been pissing me off ever since he joined the New York Yankees. Good for him, he can hit 30+ home runs over the 200ft. wall in right. At least put a 37ft wall up to make it challenging. I am not in the mood for Granderson to add to his 14 career home runs against the Sox.
Don't Fall Behind: Anyone
If the Red Sox want to play spoiler, they have to jump all over Yankees pitching and take away their confidence. The Red Sox are now the 2011 Orioles and they can make the top teams in the East miserable. They probably wont. How we see it goin' down As much as I would love to see the Red Sox play spoiler to the Yankees, Orioles, and Rays, instead, they will probably just lay down and die. Boston has had their success against the Yankees while struggling, but this won't be one of those times, nor will it matter.

Jon Lester Describes 'Pitching Uphill' Against Yankees, Appreciative of Teammates' Effort (Video)

Jon Lester entered Tuesday's start against the Yankees having won four of his last five outings -- a stretch that included going at least seven innings on three occasions. The results simply weren't there against the Bronx Bombers, though. Lester didn't factor into the decision, but he walked seven in 5 1/3 innings of work. In the end, Lester was only charged with three...

Jon Lester Defends Josh Beckett, Commends Former Teammate for Having 'A Lot of Guts'

Jon Lester didn't know the Boston Red Sox without Josh Beckett. In a span of just a couple of days in late August, though, the two were separated when Beckett was dealt to the Dodgers. So maybe it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Lester feels the need to defend Beckett after the pitcher was shipped to Los Angeles as part of a blockbuster trade last month. "Josh...

Yankees fall back into tie with 4-3 loss at Boston

Jon Lester gave the New York Yankees ample opportunity to break open the game, and they failed nearly every time. The Yankees couldn't capitalize on Lester's career-high seven walks and fell into a first-place tie atop the AL East when Jacoby Ellsbury hit an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning that lifted the Boston Red Sox to a 4-3 victory Tuesday night. '...

Yankees Game 141 Lineup: 09/11/12

The Yankees will send Hiroki Kuroda to the mound tonight in game one of a three-game set against the Boston Red Sox (63-78). In his last outing against the Tampa Bay Rays, Kuroda lasted only six innings, allowing four runs on eight hits while striking out three for the win. Left-hander Jon Lester (9-11, 4.99 ERA) is on the mound for the Red Sox. Never Forget. New York Yankees (79...

Sox Get Cooked By Yankees

For the first three innings, Aaron Cook looked fact ridiculously good...allowing no runs on just one hit.Stop me if you've heard this one before.Curtis Granderson led off the top of the 4th inning with a solo home run, Robinson Cano belted a two-run shot and just like that the Red Sox were trailing 3-0, with the Red Sox ultimately losing 5-4 to the Yankees at Fenway...

Who Will Be This Week's Amica Pitcher of the Week?

The going has been anything but easy for the Boston Red Sox lately as the team has dropped four straight and 11 of its last 12 games. This week could be just as much of a challenge, with the Red Sox preparing for a three-game series against the New York Yankees at Fenway Park before going to Toronto for three more games with the Blue Jays on the weekend. Reigning Amica Pitcher of...

Ellsbury Walks Off on the Yanks!

The Sox took to the role of playing spoiler last night when facing off against the Yankees.  The Sox and birthday boy Jacoby Ellsbury ended up walking off on the Yanks and helping the Orioles become once again tied for the lead in the AL East.  Jon Lester took the mound for the Sox in last night's game.  He continued the trend of Sox pitchers struggling and giving up at least...

Sox 9th Inning Rally Falls Short Last Night

The Red Sox weren't able to have another dramatic win over the Yankees in the 9th.  This time they rallied, but came up just a wee bit short.  The Yanks were able to win behind hitting the long ball to tie the series 1-1.  Aaron Cook took the mound for the Sox and looked good for a couple of innings, but once the Yankees went through the order a second time he got real hittable...

Red Sox Live Blog: Aaron Cook, David Phelps Facing Off as Sox Aim for Second Night as Spoilers

8 a.m. ET: The idea of the Red Sox as spoilers was alluring but somewhat unrealistic coming into yesterday. As much as the Red Sox have been able to foil the Yankees before, New York (79-62) entered the game with plenty to take care of due to their crunch in the standings -- and the Sox (64-78) have shown they could find plenty of ways to lose. But Jacoby Ellsbury and his pals had...

Yankees Game 141: Ellsbury walks off

New York Yankees 3 — Boston Red Sox 4   Inabilities to hold leads and missing the “big hits” hurt when Jacoby Ellsbury walks off for a 4-3 loss to the Boston Red Sox.   Hiroki Kuroda generally has pitched with minimal run support and tonight was about the same again. Tonight, Kuroda gave the Yankees 6.1 innings but what he didn’t do was hold the lead he received. He received...

Red Sox News & Notes - 9/12

Well how about that. The Boston Red Sox actually won a game. And it was a game that mattered. Well for the New York Yankees it did. They entered Tuesday night's game with a one game lead over the Baltimore Orioles. And when they walked on to their team bus after the game, they were once again tied for first with the O's. And it was all thanks to the birthday boy Jacoby...

Wednesday Red Sox Travesty - 9/12

After walking off with a win last night, the Boston Red Sox look to make it two in-a-row in the middle game of a three-game set with the New York Yankees at historic Fenway Park. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Yankees television market, you can catch the game on YES.  And if you...

Recap: Late rally not enough as Yanks top Sox

The Red Sox couldn't make it back-to-back walkoffs as New York topped Boston 5-4. It did get interesting in the 9th, however. Down two, Jarrod Saltalamacchia launched a solo homer off Rafael Soriano. Soriano composed himself for two straight outs, but then made an error to allow Mike Aviles to reach base, bringing up Jacoby Ellsbury for a potential spot as hero on consecutive...
