  • Johnson gets it done as Red Sox upend Rays
    Red Sox starter Brian Johnson gave up three runs in the first inning, but a balanced offensive effort put Boston in front and Johnson quieted the Rays over the rest of his solid 5 2/3-inning start. Xander Bogaerts led the charge with a triple, two doubles and two RBIs, and Jackie Bradley Jr. made a terrific catch and contributed an RBI double. Joey Wendle and Carlos Gomez delivered RBI hits in the first for Tampa Bay, but "opener" Ryne Stanek and long man Yonny Chirinos couldn't hold the lead.
  • JBJ sprints, leaps, tumbles for latest gem
    Is it more astounding that Jackie Bradley Jr. makes spectacular catches on a routine basis or that he continues to avoid bodily harm each time he goes sprawling in front of the wall?
  • Red Sox activate Kinsler, place Devers on DL
    Ian Kinsler is back with the Red Sox and not a moment too soon, because Rafael Devers is going back on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain -- the same injury that had just sent him to the DL at the end of July.

  • Every 30-30 season, ranked by club
    The marvel of the 30-30 club is predicated on the rare combination of speed and power it takes to swipe 30 bases and bash 30 homers in the same season.
  • 'Pen roughed up as Phils snap Sox streak
    As the Red Sox march toward perhaps their best regular season ever, there is still some fine-tuning to be done before the games that matter most. Joe Kelly and Drew Pomeranz are two members of the pitching staff who simply haven't been able to find their groove for weeks, and that trend continued in Wednesday's 7-4 loss to the Phillies.
  • 2 = 1? Benintendi hits ball twice for single

  • Sox's first pinch HR of year lifts strong Porcello
    Rick Porcello allowed just one run on two hits and fanned a season-high 10 batters over seven stellar innings, but playing in a National League park and his spot in the order coming up in the eighth, manager Alex Cora did the conventional thing by turning to a pinch-hitter. Brock Holt then did something that is not conventional for him, absolutely unloading for a solo homer against Phillies righty Tommy Hunter that snapped a tied ballgame and sent Boston to its MLB-leading 86th win.
  • Swihart off DL; Kinsler close to returning
    Backup catcher/utility man Blake Swihart (right hamstring strain) was activated from the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game. And starting second baseman Ian Kinsler, who had the same injury but to the left hamstring, could return as early as Wednesday.
