Found April 26, 2013 on NESN.com:
It’s rare to have a defensive highlight stand out in a game that featured 24 hits and 10 runs, but Jonny Gomes snuck one in with sprawling grab in left field to rob Houston’s Jason Castro and end the fifth inning. Gomes also pitched in at the plate, driving in his first run as a member of the Red Sox with a single in the eighth to secure a 7-3 win for Boston. After the game, the left fielder talked with reporters about the catch, Ryan Dempster‘s first win and his team’s hit parade. Check out his interview in the video above.

Alfredo Aceves still in the Red Sox plans... for now

Last week Tuesday, Alfredo Aceves gave up a horrendous 8 runs in 3 1/3 innings which pretty much sealed the deal with regards to his getting sent down to Triple-A Pawtucket.  This does not seem to be the end of Alfredo Aceves as far as the Red Sox are concerned, but it seems the thoughts are churning as to what to do with the right-hander. If there is something the Red Sox have...

Your Morning Dump...where Buchholz is locked in

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. After allowing two runs in 7 2⁄3 innings of last night’s easy-breezy 7-2 victory over the Houston Astros, Buchholz became the majors’ first five-game winner. His ERA is 1.19, lowest for a Red Sox...

Aces in the hole: Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz

On the laundry list of the Red Sox’ problems in the 2012 season, pitching was somewhere around the top. And Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz were two of the biggest disappointments. Over the years, Lester and Buchholz have been inconsistent and plagued by injuries and health issues. But this season, much to the relief of many previously miserable fans, the two aces are showing their...

Call to action - rock Boston every Monday!

I love the uniforms that were worn as part of the Boston Marathon memorial game. I guess I have a thing for all things nostalgic and this is a big part of every Boston RedSox fan too. The park is Fenway and you can't get that feeling of stepping back in time as you enter a game anywhere else. The history of the team is amazing everywhere you look and this is part of every...

Boston (16-7) is two wins short of tying the club record for the month...

Red Sox 8, Astros 4

David Ortiz has even run out of ways to talk about his red-hot return. Ortiz had two hits and three RBIs to extend his torrid start after a long layoff, and Felix Doubront overcame a wild first inning to pitch into the seventh as the Boston Red Sox beat the struggling Houston Astros 8-4 on Saturday night. ''I ain't talking about that anymore,'' said Ortiz, joking...

Alfredo Aceves’ Demotion to Triple-A Solely ‘Performance-Based,’ According to Manager John Farrell

Alfredo Aceves has ruffled some feathers in the past, but his demotion to Triple-A Pawtucket has nothing to do with any behavioral issues, according to Red Sox manager John Farrell. Farrell said before Thursday’s game that Aceves’ demotion was “performance-based, solely.” Some may find that hard to believe, but the right-hander has certainly endured his fair share of struggles...

From dumpster to Dempster

 Getting his first win of the season for the Red Sox tonight, Dempster looked pretty sharp even against a poor Astro's ball club. Coming into the season Dempster was an after thought in this Red Sox rotation. Now fans are seeing him as the strikeout machine that he has/can be. Tonight he went 6 innings only giving up 2 runs on 4 hits and allowing 3 free passes to first. Yah...

Astros Could Be Perfect Opponent for Red Sox’ First Four-Game Sweep in Two Years

The last time the Red Sox swept a four-game series, it was Boston’s final homestand before the 2011 All-Star Break when they pounded the Orioles a combined 32-13 at Fenway. Boston’s best chance this year for a four-game sweep likely will be this weekend’s visit when the Astros come to town as they continue playing their first season in the American League. They are the first...
