Lester, defense don't help one another

BOSTON -- If Masahiro Tanaka keeps doing this, the New York Yankees have a veritable ace, for whatever that means.

But with the Sox having gotten just 2 1/3 innings from Clay Buchholz on Monday and 4 [...]

Lackey looking to erase the recent tape

BOSTON -- When John Lackey takes the mound against the New York Yankees on Wednesday, he may have some nasty flashbacks. Lackey gave up a career-high four home runs and six runs overall in his last start against the Yankees in New York on April 12. He followed that up by giving up six runs on 10 hits and four walks in 5 1/3 innings against Baltimore. While the talk in the wake of Clay Buchholz’s rough outing Monday centered on arm strength and the process of building it, that’s not an issue for Lackey, according to manager John Farrell.

Rapid Reaction: Yanks 9, Red Sox 3

BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox dominated the New York Yankees en route to their 2013 World Series title, scoring over six runs a game and winning 13 of 19 meetings. It was their best winning percentage in a season series between the rivals since 1990, when Boston was 9-4 against New York. The new-look Yankees have turned the tables early in 2014 and improved to 4-1 versus the Sox after a 9-3 rout Tuesday night. Jacoby Ellsbury is a big reason why, and he helped showcase the disparity between the two teams in his return to Fenway Park for the first time since signing a $153 million contract...
