Red Sox Notes: Xander Bogaerts Justifying John Farrell’s Lineup Change

BOSTON — The Red Sox have figured out how to play winning baseball. One day after snapping a three-game losing streak with an 8-3 win, the Red Sox made it two straight victories by defeating the Los Angeles Angels 6-1 at Fenway Park.

Xander Bogaerts Still Can’t Believe That Ball Hit His Cleat (Video)

Bogaerts the Hero of the Longest Red Sox Game Ever

Last night, as the Sox/Yanks game hit the halfway mark, I looked at my watch and realized we’d only been playing for little more than an hour. With the Sox seemingly in control, I’d already mapped out how I’d fill the rest of my evening — a plan that included binge-watching Daredevil on Netflix, grilling a few steaks and finding out how many Chinatown hookers it takes to...
