  1. David Ortiz puts the Red Sox back in the game with a game-tying grand slam

    Oct 13, 2013, 11:31 PM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    The narrative of the ALCS through nine innings of Game 1 and seven innings of Game 2 was all about the Tigers’ pitching dominance and the Red Sox offensive futility. That came to a screeching halt in the bottom of the eighth inning as the Sox mounted a potentially series-altering rally against the Tiger bullpen.…

    Shane Victorino

    It took nearly 15 innings, but the Red Sox are finally on the board in the ALCS. After the Tigers put up a four-spot in the top half of the sixth, the Red Sox mounted a two-out rally against Max Scherzer to end his no-hit bid and keep hope alive in Game 2 of the…

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game One

    Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez no-hit the Red Sox through six innings in ALCS Game 1, but he will not be allowed to complete it. Sanchez threw 116 pitches, prompting Tigers manager Jim Leyland to lift him from the game with the larger goal in mind. Reliever Al Alburquerque will be the first out of the…

  5. Anibal Sanchez works out of first-inning jam by recording four strikeouts

    Oct 12, 2013, 8:44 PM EDT

    Anibal Sanchez

    Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez needed 26 pitches to escape a first-inning jam in Game 1 of the ALCS against the Red Sox. The right-hander had allowed two runners on a strikeout wild pitch and a walk, but used an array of fastballs, change-ups, and sliders to work his way out of trouble. In fact, Sanchez…

  7. The League Championship Series storylines are … complicated

    Oct 11, 2013, 9:10 AM EDT

    Boston Red Soxs

    Not gonna lie: it’s going to be a bit of a mess trying to graft your narratives on to this year’s LCS matchups and potential World Series matchups, folks.  All of the easy stories about the plucky Pirates, the quasi-homeless A’s and Joe Maddon-as-baseball’s-Phil Jackson are out the window. Everyone’s happy the Braves are gone.…

    ellsbury getty

    The Red Sox are suddenly six outs away from dismissing the Rays and advancing to the ALCS. Tampa Bay scored the first run of this ALDS Game 4 in the bottom of the sixth inning on David DeJesus‘ RBI single, but the Red Sox answered right back in the top of the seventh. Pinch-hitting for…

  10. Over-managing playoff managers and bunts that “work”

    Oct 8, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    jimmy dugan

    If I ever owned a baseball team, I’d want to hire Jimmy Dugan from “A League of their Own” as my manager. This isn’t only because he dislikes the bunt, though that helps — you probably remember the scene where he finally notices what’s happening on the field and calls off Geena Davis’ bunt sign…

  11. Red Sox guilty of a little too much playoff baseball

    Oct 7, 2013, 11:08 PM EDT

    Division Series - Boston Red Sox v Tampa Bay Rays - Game Three

    The Red Sox could have played this one straight up tonight. Instead, they made concessions to it being a postseason games. Because postseason games are rarely won 12-2 or 7-4. – In the seventh, with the score tied at 3, the Red Sox used Craig Breslow and Junichi Tazawa to get three outs. Those are…

  12. Red Sox extend lead over Rays in Game 3 of ALDS

    Ellsbury Getty

    Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury continues to be a pain in the neck for the Rays. After Clay Buchholz worked out of a bases-loaded jam to keep the Rays off the board in the bottom of the fourth inning, Ellsbury led off the top of the fifth with a liner which deflected off James…

  13. Red Sox grab early lead over Rays in Game 3 of ALDS

    Jacoby Ellsbury AP

    The Red Sox could finish off a three-game sweep of the Rays tonight. They are off to a quick start on that end. After Jacoby Ellsbury singled to lead off Game 3, Alex Cobb hit Shane Victorino with a pitch. Dustin Pedroia followed with a ground ball to third base, but Victorino’s take-out slide at…

  15. Red Sox left-handed hitters were the key to overcoming David Price

    Oct 5, 2013, 9:03 PM EDT

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    During the regular season, Rays left-handed starter David Price was murder on left-handed hitters, holding them to a .489 OPS, the sixth-best OPS allowed to lefties among qualified starters. (The others: Chris Sale, Matt Harvey, Clayton Kershaw, C.J. Wilson, and Madison Bumgarner.) You wouldn’t have known it if you watched the left-handed side of the…

  16. Behind David Ortiz’s two-homer night, Red Sox take a 2-0 lead in the ALDS

    Oct 5, 2013, 8:52 PM EDT

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    The Red Sox will head down to Tampa Bay happy campers. After a thorough 12-2 dismantling of the Rays in Game 1, the Sox scored seven runs against 2012 AL Cy Young award winner David Price in seven-plus innings, just enough run support for John Lackey. The scoring started early, with Jacoby Ellsbury leading off…

  17. Red Sox continue moving the goalposts against the Rays

    Oct 5, 2013, 7:47 PM EDT

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    To their credit, the Rays have remained competitive throughout Game 2 against the Red Sox despite starter David Price looking not-so-sharp as well as some defensive miscues by the Tampa Bay defense. After the Red Sox took a 2-0 lead in the first, the Rays scratched back for a run in the second on a…

  18. Red Sox continue attacking, tag David Price for two more runs

    Oct 5, 2013, 6:44 PM EDT

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    The Rays managed to get one of the runs back after starter David Price surrendered two in the first inning to the Red Sox. However, the Sox offense has proven to be relentless, adding an additional two runs in the third inning. Leading off the frame, David Ross hit a high fly ball off of…

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game One

    David Price may have pitched the Rays past a treacherous Game 163 to get into the Wild Card playoff, but the Red Sox clearly aren’t impressed. The Rays’ lefty, who led the league with a 5.6 strikeout-to-walk ratio and four complete games, was tagged for two runs in the first inning due to two of…

  21. Youthful Rays appear rattled in Game 1 rout

    Oct 4, 2013, 6:57 PM EDT

    Matt Moore

    Technically, the Rays went errorless in Friday’s 12-2 loss to the Red Sox. Which just further demonstrates how silly judging things based on errors can be. After three innings without allowing a hit, Matt Moore gave up a Dustin Pedroia single to start the fourth with the Rays up 2-0. David Ortiz followed with a…

    Oct 1, 2013, 2:18 AM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Evan Longoria made his case for moving up the MVP ballot with his big game Monday, but while it’s safe to say the Rays wouldn’t have reached the postseason without him, he was still no better than the AL’s third best third baseman. It was, in fact, the year of the third baseman in the…

    Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is officially done for the 2013 season. Then again, so is every player who is not on a team that is headed for the playoffs. The slugger was clipped on his glove hand by Jacoby Ellsbury on a bang-bang play at first base Sunday in the fourth inning and exited…
