It didn't take long for Jacoby Ellsbury to feel back at home at Fenway Park - even when wearing a road uniform. The center fielder had a pair of big hits against the Boston Red Sox in his first visit with the Yankees, a performance he'd love to replicate Wednesday night against a pitcher New York has already hit hard this month. Ellsbury was 2-for-
BOSTON (AP) Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury received a mixed reception Tuesday night in his first game at Fenway Park as an opponent. There were more boos than cheers when he stepped in as the first hitter against the Boston Red Sox, the team he spent seven seasons with before signing a seven-year contract with New York after last season. The Yankees
BOSTON (AP) Jacoby Ellsbury and a couple of miscues were too much for the Boston Red Sox. Ellsbury doubled, tripled, drove in two runs and made a sliding catch in his return to Fenway Park, helping the New York Yankees and Masahiro Tanaka beat the Red Sox 9-3 on Tuesday night. The Yankees also capitalized on two errors by Boston and a lackluster start by Jon
BOSTON (AP) Jacoby Ellsbury wasted little time reminding the Red Sox how he used to help them win. He did it for the Yankees and Masahiro Tanaka on Tuesday night. The boos had barely subsided when Ellsbury tripled leading off the game, his first as an opponent at Fenway Park. Then in the bottom of the first he stole a hit from Boston leadoff hitter Grady Siz
BOSTON (AP) The Baltimore Orioles nearly lost twice in 20 hours after taking big leads against the Boston Red Sox in both games. Tommy Hunter made sure they didn't. The closer worked out of a one-out, bases-loaded jam in the ninth inning, and Baltimore won 7-6 on Monday after taking a six-run lead.
BOSTON (AP) A year after the Boston Marathon bombings, the Red Sox had plenty of chances to make a special day even more memorable. They almost succeeded. Boston scored one run in each of the last three innings - stranding runners in scoring position in all of them - - in a 7-6 loss to the Baltimore Orioles in Monday's traditional Patriots' Day mor
BOSTON (AP) Dustin Pedroia started fast, stopped and then raced home with the winning run. It certainly was an adventurous way to end a game. Pedroia scored from third on left fielder David Lough's throwing error with two outs in the ninth inning, lifting the Boston Red Sox to a 6-5 comback win over Baltimore Orioles on Sunday night. "I was a littl
BOSTON (AP) A five-run lead wasn't enough to save Baltimore from a series of late defensive blunders. A hanging curveball, a wild pitch and three errors in the final three innings ate away at the Orioles' lead as the Boston Red Sox rallied for a 6-5 victory Sunday night. "That was the difference in the game," Baltimore manager Buck Showal
BOSTON (AP) The Boston Red Sox held an emotional 20-minute pregame ceremony honoring victims of the Boston Marathon bombings along with law enforcement officials, medical personnel, runners and race volunteers before Sunday night's game against the Baltimore Orioles. With canvasses of handwritten notes from each of the 50 states being held on the outfie
BOSTON (AP) Baltimore starter Bud Norris could use a little offensive support, although he was pleased to see how quickly his teammates came to his defense. Norris held Boston to four runs on five hits, striking out seven and walking two in a good performance that wasn't quite enough to overcome the Orioles' struggles at the plate as the Red Sox be
