Tampa Bay's Alex Cobb wasn't quite as sharp as he had been over the past two months in his last start, and his impressive team record came to an end. He'll look to bounce back by extending the Boston Red Sox's home woes in Tuesday night's series opener. Cobb (9-8, 2.82) leads all of baseball with a 1.38 ERA in 11 starts since July 23
BALTIMORE (AP) As this horrid season draws to a merciful conclusion for the last-place Boston Red Sox, every once in a while there is cause for optimism. Boston's performance Sunday in a 3-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles provided manager John Farrell with no small measure of encouragement. Joe Kelly pitched seven innings of three-hit ball and the Red S
BALTIMORE (AP) The Baltimore Orioles wrapped up their regular-season home schedule with a defeat, one that was much easier to take because of the circumstances surrounding it. The Orioles' 3-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Sunday didn't impact their stature as AL East champions. Afterward, there was no heartfelt farewell to the fans, because Camden
BALTIMORE (AP) A night that started so well for the Red Sox ended like so many others have this season - with Boston on the wrong end of a lopsided game. Adam Jones hit a pair of two-run homers, Chris Tillman overcame a shaky first inning and the Baltimore Orioles rolled to a 7-2 victory Saturday.

BALTIMORE (AP) As the AL East-champion Baltimore Orioles move closer to the postseason, one question that must be answered in the next week or so is: What to do with rookie Kevin Gausman? Gausman left with a blister after throwing five innings Friday night in Baltimore's 5-3, 10-inning loss to the Boston Red Sox. The right-hander hasn't won a game

Ortiz hit two home runs, including a two-run drive in the 10th inning that lifted the Red Sox past the Baltimore Orioles 5-3 Friday night. Although the AL East-champion Orioles are still in th
PITTSBURGH (AP) It might be way too early to call the Pittsburgh Pirates a team of destiny. But after what manager Clint Hurdle witnessed Thursday night, he had to stop and wonder. "Sometimes, you're just meant to win," he said. The Pirates got a lucky break when Boston pinch-runner Jemile Weeks was hit by a batted ball in the ninth inning, be
PITTSBURGH (AP) Everything seems to be going wrong for the Boston Red Sox one year after so many things went right. Their third World Series title in 10 years is a distant memory. This season they are all but assured of finishing last in the AL East. The Pittsburgh Pirates were the latest team to take advantage, getting a lucky break when Boston pinch-runner
BOSTON (AP) Five centuries after William Shakespeare wrote "Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown," the Boston Red Sox have been deposed as World Series champions, bouncing from last place to first and again to the cellar in a shift from tragedy to comedy that even the revered playwright would appreciate.
