Game 125: Yankees at Red Sox - Lacking fire power, Sox turn to Lackey to beat Yanks

Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer Things are turning bleak for the Boston Red Sox, who lost their third straight game and sixth of their last eight.

Blue Jays hang on to down Red Sox in finale

David Ortiz says he’s as surprised as anyone with the Blue Jays’ poor performance this year. “When I saw what they put together in the offseason I was like ‘Whoa this is the competition.’ ” Of course it didn’t turn out that way as Ortiz’s first-place Red Sox sit a comfortable 15 games ahead of the last-place Jays.
