11:45 a.m. ET: Good morning from sunny Fenway Park, where the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles will square of in a Sunday matinee just under two hours from now. Saturday was a long day at the ballpark for these teams, as the Red Sox took Game 1 of a day-night doubleheader 3-2 on a walk-off single by Jonathan Herrera before the O’s rebounded with a 7-4 win in the nightcap. Taking the mound for the Sox in the series finale will be Jake Peavy, who is in desperate need of some good luck. The veteran right-hander has just one win on the season — way back on April 25 — and Boston has lost each of the last six games he’s started. 23-year-old Kevin Gausman will do the honors for Baltimore. Gausman, who made his major league debut last May, is 3-2 with a 3.86 ERA in five starts this season. He was knocked around in his last outing, allowing five runs in five innings in a loss to the last-place Tampa Bay Rays on June 27. We’ll have much more on the matchup leading up to first pitch at 1:3...

Red Sox are reluctant to deal Middlebrooks

The Red Sox have been receiving decent trade interest in recent days in third baseman Will Middlebrooks, who's on injury rehab following his slow start in Boston. But while he looks like a logical trade candidate who may benefit from a change of scenery, Red Sox people are said to seem quite reluctant to deal Middlebrooks. There could be two reasons for this. The first one is...

Red Sox pitcher John Lackey on Orioles star Nelson Cruz: 'I've got nothing to say about him'

Cruz was 3-for-3 with a double and homer off Lackey. He doubled and singled off Lackey in his first two at-bats of the game, then...

Happy post-4th, America. Last week we had an abbreviated week of picks due to the holiday, but when last we spoke we had a last-second change of heart thanks to some pre-hurricane weather conditions in Boston.
