The Boston Red Sox were able to pick up their fifth straight win on the road Sunday against the Minnesota Twins, but it took a little while to do it. The Red Sox came back out and captured the win after a three-hour rain delay.

Starting pitcher John Lackey pitched six innings in the 5-1 victory, but he knew after the first half hour of the delay that he wouldn’t be going back into the game. Lackey said the team spent the time watching classic baseball movie "The Sandlot" in the clubhouse.

The loose clubhouse atmosphere was a staple for that...

Dustin Pedroia: Mr. Dependable

Sam Galanis Contributing Writer Dustin Pedroia may just be the epitome of who the Red Sox are. It may not always be perfect or pretty, but they get the job done. And they both certainly exemplified that during Friday’s 3-2 extra innings win over the Minnesota Twins. Pedroia has been getting criticism for not being a power hitter so far this season, as he has only one home run...
