Derek Norris homered and Yoenis Cespedes added an RBI single to help the division-leading A's end a two-game losing streak and maintain their one-game lead over Texas in the West. Oakland reached 55 wins before the All-Star break for the first time...
Dustin Pedroia can officially say he’s a Hall of Famer.
Pedroia might not be enshrined in Cooperstown (yet), but the Arizona Fall League announced Friday that the Red Sox second baseman has been elected as one of three new members of its Hall of Fame. Pedroia is joined by Athletics manager Bob Melvin and former major leaguer Darin Erstad as the Hall’s new inductees.
There have been plenty of great story lines this season for the Boston Red Sox, but John Lackey‘s return to dominance after missing the entire 2012 season may be chief among them.
Lackey now has a 2.78 ERA with 93 strikeouts in 100 1/3 innings. The season got off to a rough start, too, when he left his first start of the season after just 4 1/3 innings after injuring his biceps...
The Boston Red Sox have decided to option right-handed reliever Steven Wright to their Triple-A Pawtucket minor league affiliate. Wright, who was recalled just a few days ago, earned his first win with the big league club after tossing a solid 5 2/3 scoreless innings in long relief. Look for Wright to get another opportunity down the road this season.

With Allen Webster in Pawtucket and out of the rotation, Brandon Workman will get the start in Sunday’s game at Oakland, according to the Boston Globe. This will be the 24-year-old righthander’s first major league start.
Workman made his major league debut Wednesday against Seattle. He threw two innings of relief...
Monday: Seattle Mariners 11 Boston Red Sox 4 Felix Hernandez 9-4 W Jon Lester 8-5 L Raul Ibanez was the star of the game as he hit his 22nd home run to help King Felix win his ninth game in the Mariners' 11-4 victory over the Red Sox on Monday night.

The last time that Brandon Workman took the mound for the Red Sox was during his major league debut on Wednesday. Things didn’t go as planned for Workman, though, as he saw his ERA climb to 13.50 in two innings of work.
The Sox hope that Sunday will go better for him, as he makes his first major league start. He will have his work cut out for him, though, as he will have to keep...
It’s back to Triple-A for Steven Wright.
The Red Sox announced that Wright, who dazzled in relief on Thursday, was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket to make room for the newly acquired Matt Thornton.
Wright pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings out of the bullpen against the Mariners on Thursday, but the Red Sox acquired Thornton in a trade with the White Sox on Friday. Boston sent minor...
Despite the Red Sox’ success this season up until the All-Star break, the first-place club hasn’t shown a ton of power in the lineup outside of David Ortiz. It will be quite the opposite for Ortiz on Tuesday night in the All-Star Game, though.
The Boston designated hitter was voted into the All-Star Game in New York at Citi Field as the American League’s starting designated...
If we learned anything from the book and film Moneyball, it’s that the teams that win games are the teams that score runs. The Red Sox didn’t do any scoring last night, held in check by the notorious A. J. Griffin, so they copped a loss.
I’m not gonna dwell too much on it, other than to say despite the loss, Jon Lester put in a decent performance giving up just three runs...
2:04 p.m.: The final lineup card of the first half has been posted, and it looks like some regular starters will enjoy an extended All-Star break.
Shane Victorino, Mike Napoli and Jarrod Saltalamacchia are all out of the lineup for the Red Sox on Sunday. Victorino has been banged up of late, and Saltalamacchia will get the day off with the day game after a night game.
