Boston won five of its previous seven games on the road before suffering the defeat. The most disheartening aspect of Boston’s extra-inning loss was that the offense was up to par. The Red Sox rallied to tie the game...

Even Mookie Betts Finds Rick Porcello’s Starts Forgettable

Last night, something truly wondrous happened: Multi-millionaire Rick Porcello took the hill for the Red Sox and we didn’t lose.

WATCH: Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts Scores From Second Off a Five-Foot Hit

When a base runner gets to second he is typically considered to be in scoring position since most guys have enough speed to score if a base hit makes it to the outfield (or is not fielded right). However, if a ball only makes it about five feet in front of home plate you would think the guy on second might even stay put. At the most he might take third if they try to make a play...

After Wednesday’s 2-1 loss and roughly 25 percent of the way through the season, the team sits two games below .500 at 19-21. More frustrating is the manner in which they’ve lost — since Carl Willis has become the pitching coach, it seems every pitcher on...
