Notified at 6 p.m. on Saturday, he was immediately scratched from his start with Triple-A Pawtucket in Scranton Wilkes-Barre and drove to Philadelphia, where he caught a 6:30 a.m...

The umpires didn't cost the Red Sox Thursday's ballyhooed matinee with the Tigers. Their bullpen did. But that didn't stop the Sox from steaming over a peculiar play that didn't go their way in the second inning. With one out and J.D. Martinez on first, Casey McGehee sent a sinking liner to center...

The Red Sox believe the Tigers manipulated the schedule to gain a competitive advantage on Thursday by playing a 1 p.m. game despite the Red Sox playing at 7 p.m. in Baltimore a night earlier. Defenders of the Tigers have contorted themselves into nothing-to-see-here pretzels by noting that the...
