The Red Sox were due for a solid offensive night at Fenway Park. The team combined for 11 runs in a rout of the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night. The Sox tallied a season-high 20 hits to snap a two-game losing streak, with all nine starters recording hits in the game. The offense was backed up by the defense, though, with Ryan Dempster giving up just two runs in six innings to clinch his fifth win of the season. The Sox have a long homestand to continue showing Boston fans why they sit atop the AL East. To hear what Mike Napoli had to say about his team’s effort after the game, watch the video above.

Quality Control: Mr. Dependable, Ryan Dempster

Jan-Christian Sorensen Contributing Writer It’s been a feast-or-famine situation when Red Sox starter Ryan Dempster is looking for run support from his teammates this season. Last night, it was a feast of epic proportions. The Sox ripped a season-high 20 hits and scored 11 runs against the visiting Colorado Rockies to lift Dempster (5-8) to the win. Dempster, for his part,...

Mike Napoli shows some skin at the plate

Boston Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli is not the first MLB player to leave the top buttons on his jersey undone.

Red Sox-Rockies: Colorado Takes on Ryan Dempster in Rare Trip to Fenway

8 a.m. ET: For the first time since the 2007 World Series, the Colorado Rockies will take the field at Fenway Park on Tuesday.

'Rocky Mountain Fry'; Sox Pound Colorado, 11-4

(Jim Rogash/Getty Images)Ryan Dempster must be wondering why the Red Sox can't support him like this all the time. Boston pounded out a season-high twenty hits on the way to smiting the Rockies at Fenway, 11-4. Four different Red Sox players collected three hits (Dustin Pedroia, Daniel Nava, Jacoby Ellsbury, Jose Iglesias), while Pedroia knocked in four runs in the rout. Dempster...

Rockies-Red Sox Preview

Run support continues to come at a premium for Ryan Dempster, and it's not helping his record. He could especially use some offense from his Boston Red Sox teammates Tuesday night when they face the red-hot Michael Cuddyer and Colorado Rockies in the teams' first meeting at Fenway Park since Boston swept the 2007 World Series. Dempster (4-8, 4.23 ERA) has lost three of...

3 Stars of the Game: Game 79

Ryan MacLeod Contributing Writer It surprised me to look at the Red Sox record against the National League this season and see that the Rockies are only the second team from the NL that we have played. We currently have a record of 3-2 against the NL this year and last night was an exciting win for the Sox. They belted out 20 hits and plated 11 runs. Starting pitcher Ryan Dempster...

John Lackey & Ryan Dempster: The 2 most valuble pitchers so far

Photo Courtesy of NESN Not many people would have told you at the beginning of the season that our top 2 starters, Jon Lester and Clay Bucholzm would be going through serious issues in June. "They're both perfectly fine and pitching great," you might have said. Well, I would have said the same thing, but I couldn't forsee Clay Bucholz's imjury problems...

Boston Red Sox return home looking to get back on track vs. Rockies
