"Right now we're all scratching our heads about how that actually took place," Cashman said
John Lackey was incredible, Derek Jeter was hilarious, and oh yeah, Michael Pineda got tossed for using pine tar. The Red Sox bounced back from their Tuesday night drubbing with a 5-1 win over the Yankees that was crazy in all the right ways. So, let's not waste time. After the Red Sox scored two runs off of Michael Pineda in the bottom of the first, the Yankees' young pitcher returned to the mound in the second with a big ol' smear of pine tar on his neck. NESN's cameras caught it immediately, John Farrell headed out to talk to the umpires with two outs (shortly after David Ortiz came...

While the Red Sox and Yankees were entangled in an updated “Pine Tar Incident” (where was George Brett?) last night, John Lackey had other, more pressing matters on his mind.For one thing, Lackey wanted to pitch deep enough in the game that the taxed Red Sox bullpen could get a much-needed rest. For another, he was trying to correct his mistakes from his previous two starts in which he allowed 12 runs on 20 hits.And then, there was this: How would he subdue a Yankees offense that slugged four home runs against him 11 days earlier in New York?
Chris Colabello singled home Joe Mauer and Trevor Plouffe in the top of the 12th inning to lift Minnesota to a 6-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesay night at Tropicana Field.
The Orioles will attempt to even their series against the Blue Jays tonight at Rogers' Center, where they've gone 8-12 in their last 20 games. Limiting the number of three-run homers surrendered would be a smart strategy. Before last night,...
