The Red Sox took the mound at a Yankee Stadium in a day where it seemed to always be threatening to rain. The game was covered in a cold mist as the game continued. Jon Lester was on the mound for the Sox for his last outing of the season.
Lester got a lead before he even took the mound tonight. Ellsbury hit a leadoff single and then he came home on an RBI double by Dustin Pedroia. Pedey moved to 3rd on a Nava ground out and then came home on an RBI sac fly from Cody Ross. Sox 2-0. Lester was on the verge of giving up a first inning run, but then got Teixeira to ground into a double play to end the inning. Lester gave up his only run in the 2nd inning and it wasn't even an earned run. Lester gave up a single to Granderson and he got to 2nd base on a throwing error from Ciriaco. Nunez hit an infield single that probably should have been an out, but the ball wasn't handled by Iglesias and then ball went into left field. Sox 1-2. In the bottom of the 3rd, the Yanks...

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Pedroia did not play versus the Yankees on Monday, but other than joking about what ailed him -- "What's wrong with me? A lot of things. I'm [expletive] up in the head" -- he did not discuss...
That lovely photo came through David Ortiz's twitter page yesterday. I'm not sure what brought this on or if it is a part of an on-going joke, but it gets a chuckle.
We now know that Jose Iglesias, Pedro Ciriaco, and Mauro Gomez will make awful women. We also know that Mauro Gomez needs to do some crunches.
I guess it is good to dress up like cheerleaders and have...
The 1992 Red Sox were a last-place train wreck, but amidst the wreckage emerged future MVP Mo Vaughn.
It’s been a long time since Boston Red Sox fans have seen a season like the one that will come to a merciful end on Wednesday night in Yankee Stadium. It’s more than just the franchise’s first losing season since 1997. It’s the first 90-loss season since 1966. But I think...
As far as jinxes go, this one probably didn't do much. But it should still put a smile on hardy Red Sox fans' faces after a year to forget. The most enduring memory for most Red Sox fans from the building of the new Yankee Stadium in the Bronx was the news that a surreptitious construction worker had buried a David Ortiz jersey in the concrete deep within the new park. When...
Broken finger? No problem for Dustin Pedroia. Despite being diagnosed one day earlier with an avulsion fracture of his left ring finger, Pedroia got medical clearance and talked his way into the last-place Boston Red Sox's lineup Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. "I love playing, man. It's fun," Pedroia said. "I get to compete for two more games, and then...
Wrist issues have plagued Red Sox players this season. In early August, the team placed Daniel Nava on the disabled list with a sprained wrist. Nearly a week after, Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks broke his wrist when he was drilled by a fastball. Middlebrooks was making strides toward recovery this week, taking his first swings off a tee since the injury. He's able to...
It's over. That's the most we can say about the Red Sox season as the book closes on Game 162, the last in a series of ignomious losses. The Sox lost 93 games this year, the most they have in quite some time, and -- hopefully -- the most they will for many years to come. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is tying a bow on this season by awarding Dustin Pedroia our "Wait...
Editor's note: NESN.com is going to tell the story of the 2012 Red Sox in Bobby Valentine's words. Each game day, we will select a Valentine quote that sums up the day for the Red Sox. The torture has ended. With a 14-2 loss to the Yankees on Wednesday, the Red Sox finished the 2012 regular season with a record of 69-93 and the franchise's worst winning percentage (.425...
It’s been a long first season with the Red Sox for Bobby Valentine. He has encountered issue after issue almost from the day he took over in Boston. So it’s fitting that his final days of his first season included him ending up in a ditch after falling off his bicycle in a texting and cycling accident.
Valentine was busy reading a text message from Red Sox second baseman Dustin...
You didn't really expect the Red Sox to win Wednesday night, did you? Making what was likely his final start for the Red Sox, Daisuke Matsuzaka (pictured) didn't make it through the 3rd inning as the Yankees touched him for 5 runs on 6 hits and a walk to clinch the American League Eastern Division crown with a 14-2 win over the Red Sox.Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson...
Apparently, the season is over for the Boston Red Sox. And with the way things have been going, it looks like it's been over for a long while now.
They've had the perfect chance to play spoiler over the final three weeks of the season. But they haven't done diddly squat in that department.
Using what amounts to a spring training lineup against one of the most powerful...
After being swept in Baltimore, the Boston Red Sox head to the Big Apple for their final three games of their miserable 2012 season. Tonight, they'll take on the New York Yankees in the first game of a three-game set at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the...
For Red Sox fans, this season cannot end soon enough. Decimated by injuries, plagued by constant turmoil and negative news stories, declines by formerly good pitchers and a manager controversy that never ended all mark a season that started off on the wrong foot and ended without any legs at all. Every bad situation needs a scapegoat. There has to be a villain in a story like this...
Another man came forward Tuesday to accuse a now-dead Boston Red
Sox clubhouse manager of sexually abusing him.
Let it be noted that the Red Sox had a better record this September than they did last September. September 2011: 7-20September 2012: 8-18Perhaps someone can capture the bittersweet irony here better than I can, in the comments.
