Zack Wheeler bounced back from a couple of less than optimal starts and delivered a solid performance Sunday at Cashman Field in Las Vegas.
The Mets’ top pitching prospect allowed three runs on six hits including one home run, in 5.1 innings while walking none and striking out eight. All told, Wheeler threw 97 pitches, 61 of them for strikes.
Wheeler struggled in his first...
Colorado Springs 19, Las Vegas 5
Ouch. The Colorado Spring Sky Sox destroyed the Las Vegas 51s in Monday’s night affair, 19-5.
Chris Schwinden got the start and struggled mightily – although it was not completely his fault. His final line says it all – 3.2 innings pitched with seven hits (two home runs) and four walks allowed. This all added up to eight runs allowed – although...
Boston got its first sporting distraction since the Marathon bombing as the Red Sox went to Cleveland and beat the Indians soundly, 7-2.
First, the game stuff: It was a weird one. The pitching was all over the place. Ubaldo Jimenez got scorched for Cleveland, registering his second-shortest career outing after walking five batters and allowing all seven Boston runs in an inning...
The Red Sox provided the best kind of winning over the weekend, taking Saturday’s game with a 10th-inning infield hit and cruising to Sunday’s victory behind a top-shelf performance from Clay Buchholz.
On Monday, as Fenway Park and all surrounding Boston locales celebrate Marathon Monday and Patriots Day, Ryan Dempster will get a chance to cap off the Sox’ strong series while...
With a 7-4 start, the Boston Red Sox are doing just about everything needed to make the fans forget the time frame from the September 2011 collapse through the disastrous 2012 season under Bobby Valentine. This weekend proved to be a microcosm of that goodwill, with the Bosox even coming out of a rainout Friday night with some positive press.In the past, the general feeling was...
The Mets took both games of a weather shortened series against the Minnesota Twins this weekend, with a pair of games that offered something for everyone. If you prefer watching the Met’s offense, Friday night’s game was the game for you as the Mets trounced the Twins 16-5, highlighted by scoring five runs in both the first and second innings. If pitching is more your preference...
Clay Buchholz struck out a career-high 11 batters and Mike Napoli drove in two runs to give the Boston Red Sox a 5-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.
For more slices of Red Sox goodness, head over to the Boston Globe, Boston Herald, CSN New England, ESPN Boston...
The umpire ruled the runner out at first base, and Red Sox fans are not going to disagree.
But even if Stephen Drew didn’t nip Evan Longoria at first in Monday’s one-run game, his cleanup work at shortstop would have been worth a tip of the cap anyway.
With two outs in the top of the sixth and runners on the corners, Ryan Dempster needed a stop to get himself out of the inning...
The New York Yankees paid tribute to victims of the Boston Marathon bombings by playing the Fenway Park favorite "Sweet Caroline" at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday night.
The popular sing-along song has been featured at Boston Red Sox home games since 2002.

Even for someone like me, a displaced Boston area native living in Washington D.C, waking up the morning of the third Monday of April is still a special day. It is Patriots’ Day, the commemoration of the battles of Lexington and Concord and the start of the American Revolution. In Boston and Massachusetts where is it observed, the day carries great significance as more than a commemoration...
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.
Boston is a tough and resilient town. So are its people. I’m supremely
confident that Bostonians will pull together, take care of each other,
and move forward as one proud city.
The list of great baseball movies is longer than your average Yankees-Red Sox game. Field of Dreams, Bull Durham, Major League, Major League II, Moneyball, For Love of the Game, The Natural, A League of Their Own, The Sandlot, Bad News Bears, The Fan (ok that one was a joke, just making sure you were paying attention) and the list goes on.
The greatest real-life baseball...
