Pablo Sandoval went 2 for 2 with a homer and three RBIs before exiting. The Red Sox won 6-5 on Mookie Betts' first career walkoff RBI hit.
It took the Red Sox the entire nine innings, but they got a lead when it mattered most. The Red Sox looked like they were in for a long night when starter Joe Kelly gave up five runs in his first four innings of work, but there was still a whole lot of baseball left to play, and Boston's bullpen and lineup combined to catch up by the bottom of the eighth. Then, in the bottom of the ninth, lead off hitter and center fielder Mookie Betts brought a win to the Sox with a walk-off single that scored shortstop Xander Bogaerts. The best part (besides the whole winning thing)? It was the first Red...

Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts entered Monday 0 for his last 10, and hitting just .171 after going 2-for-4 on Opening Day.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia is officially up for grabs. But the Red Sox aren't likely to take him for free, much less trade for their former catcher. The Marlins have designated catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia for assignment just one season (plus 33 plate appearances) after signing him to a three-year, $21 million contract. With Saltalamacchia now available to either the highest bidder in the trade market or, should no partner emerge willing to eat some portion of his contract, to any team that offers a league minimum salary, there's no shortage of rumors surrounding his future. And, of course, the...

If the Red Sox intend to eventually trade for pitching help, it doesn’t do them any good to panic about the early struggles of their rotation.Just in case, manager John Farrell and general manager Ben Cherington are sticking to the script.
Red Sox starter Joe Kelly threw a strange brew of pitches to earn a satisfactory no decision in last night’s 6-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays at Fenway Park.“It is never bittersweet when we win and I just love when our team wins,” said Kelly. “The guys did a great job, and with an offense like this you are always in the game from the first pitch to the end of the game.”

Red Sox starter Joe Kelly hit 100 MPH with his fastball a few times in Monday’s game against the Blue Jays. With most pitchers that would be their go-to pitch, but not Kelly on Monday. The Blue Jays hitters pounced on Kelly’s fastball and jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning and […]
