Game 90: Red Sox at Angels - Sox push forward with Lackey facing former team

Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer In most years, a loss like the one the Boston Red Sox took Saturday night would be a crushing blow and the beginning of a long losing streak. But not this team. Not this year. The Red Sox (54-35) stunningly fell to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (42-45) in extra innings, 9-7, after blowing a 7-3 lead they took into the bottom of the ninth. This...

Offense Is Lacking, Lackey Isn't; Sox Lose, 3-0

John Lackey was once again stunningly good—going seven innings and giving up just two runs on five hits. The righty struck out nine and walked only one. Unfortunately it didn't matter...

John Lackey Looks to Help Red Sox Bounce Back After Tough Loss in Extra Innings

3 Stars of the Game: Game 90

Its the game that everyone that is a baseball fan watches, and the Sox came out flat, getting only 5 hits in 9 innings, scoring 0 runs. Lackey pitched well, a good showing from him back in his old stomping grounds...

The Way the Ball Bounces

John Lackey spent eight seasons in Anaheim, bursting onto the baseball scene for the Angels in 2002 when he started and won Game 7 of the World Series as a rookie. In those eight years in LA, he won 102 games, tied for fifth most in Angels franchise history.

Sox top Padres

I missed the first eight and a half innings of tonight’s game because I was in class: graduate school started yesterday and we’ve hit the ground running. Of course, I surreptitiously monitored the progress of the Red Sox as consistently as possible, and was thrilled every time I checked in by the excellent start from John Lackey. You can’t script it any better than this: the...
