Boston Red Sox
New York Yankees
After walking off with a win last night, the Boston Red Sox look to make it two in-a-row in the middle game of a three-game set with the New York Yankees at historic Fenway Park.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Yankees television market, you can catch the game on YES. And if you don't live in either market you're in luck as the ESPN will have coverage of the game (outside of Red Sox and Yankees television markets). The game will also be available online and for your mobile device (where available) on WatchESPN. If you can't catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to it on the Red Sox radio network.

BOSTON –– For Jacoby Ellsbury, there was little need for birthday candles. The Red Sox centerfielder provided fireworks of his own to celebrate his 29th birthday against the Yankees. With Pedro Ciriaco and Mike Aviles aboard in the bottom of the ninth inning, Ellsbury drilled a single to right field that scored Ciriaco and catapulted the Red Sox to a 4-3 walk-off victory over...
Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine has plenty of critics. Fans are quick to pin this year's problems on him. Members of the team have disliked or discouraged him. Analysts and pundits will talk about everything he's done wrong. But, for all the vitriol that can be sent Valentine's way, he remains untouchable in one area. No one can fault this man for the raw fire, passion...
Editor's note: The temperature gauge is a Bill James-created statistic that measures how hot or cold hitters are. We will spotlight Red Sox and opposing team temperatures on game days. Dustin Pedroia has been tearing it up lately for the Red Sox, and seems poised to put the team on his back to carry them across the finish line. Boston might not have much to play for these days...
The Boston Red Sox’s ownership group rejected a report Thursday that the team could be on the market. Fox Business Network cited sources who said the owners were “mulling a potential sale” of the franchise. The group also owns Liverpool FC of the English Premier League. The report indicated that team executives are debating whether they have the capital to operate both...

Although he's a Philadelphia native, Bill Cosby adopted Massachusetts as his second home after attending UMass-Amherst in the 1970s while earning his master's degree. The comedy icon spent last Saturday at Gillette Stadium, rooting on his alma mater in its first football game as a Division I FBS school. Unfortunately, the Minutemen were beaten handily by Indiana, 45-6. Cosby...
Performance forgives a multitude of sins.
If you’re a pitcher that exudes attitude on the mound with fist-pumps, swearing, and a tense brow, it is seen as tenacity—you can Jose Valverde all over the mound, as long as you keep the saves high and runs low. But when performance starts to slip, the actions that were once signs of perseverance are suddenly less cute, often viewed...
For the first three innings, Aaron Cook looked good...in fact ridiculously good...allowing no runs on just one hit.Stop me if you've heard this one before.Curtis Granderson led off the top of the 4th inning with a solo home run, Robinson Cano belted a two-run shot and just like that the Red Sox were trailing 3-0, with the Red Sox ultimately losing 5-4 to the Yankees at Fenway...
BOSTON -- For the second straight week, John Lackey threw a live batting practice in front of an audience -- his teammates. Before Thursday's game against the Yankees, Lackey tossed 25 pitches to slugger Mauro Gomez. From Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine's point of view, the hurler showed significant progress. "[He] felt even better than he did last time, and looked better...
Don Draper isn't much of a baseball fan, but his alter Ego Jon Hamm enjoys to take in a game every now and again. Hamm, who stars as Draper in AMC's hit series Mad Men, was at Fenway Park on Thursday night to catch the finale of the Red Sox three-game set with the Yankees. Sporting a Red Sox hat and seated just next to the Boston dugout, Hamm was taking in the game alongside...
BOSTON -- In baseball parlance they call catcher's gear "the tools of ignorance," but try telling that to Red Sox rookie catcher Ryan Lavarnway. Along with reliever Craig Breslow, the 25-year-old -- who's been tabbed as the Red Sox "catcher of the future" -- is one of two Boston players with an Ivy League education. Lavarnway spent three years, one short...
