Clemens talks Boston, Pedro, and Hall of Fame

A familiar face visited the WEEI broadcast booth on Tuesday night ‘€“ The Rocket.

Roger Clemens was in town to throw batting practice as part of a Jimmy Fund event, and after broadcasting a couple of innings with Joe Castiglione and Dave O’Brien, and before heading out for dinner, he stopped to discuss his feelings for Boston, his thoughts on Pedro Martinez heading into the Hall of Fame, and his own hopes of one day reaching Cooperstown.

Now a special assistant to Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow, Clemens was making his first visit to Boston since being inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame last August.

“Boston’s always been great to me, every time I’m here,” he said. “This is where I got started. I have wonderful...

Travis Shaw records first big-league hits

In calling up Travis Shaw after optioning Steven Wright back to Pawtucket, the Red Sox presented Shaw with another opportunity. He had been given a chance twice earlier in the season — once at the beginning of May and again in the middle of June.

He had been unable to capitalize so far, but on Tuesday night, as the Sox pieced together a 4-3 comeback win over the Marlins, Shaw got his first major league hit, and there’s a ball in his locker saying so.

“When you go back down and it’s just like ‘ugh,’ you missed an opportunity to get that first hit,” he said. “That’s what everybody searches for, but this year’s been a little different for me. I’ve never experienced any of the up and down stuff or the come up here and not play as much as you used to, so it’s, for me, just trying to stay in a rhythm as...

Bogaerts' clutch single leads Sox over Marlins

Facing arguably the five biggest games of the season leading into the All-Star break, the Red Sox kicked those games off in style.

Trailing 3-1 going into the bottom of the seventh inning, the Red Sox scored three times to take a 4-3 lead and held on for the win over the Marlins in the first of a two-game series. It was their third straight win and they have now won eight of their last 11.

Stepping to the plate with two outs and the bases loaded in the seventh against weird-throwing reliever Carter Capps, Xander Bogaerts fouled off multiple pitches and worked a full count before lining a single to right center field, which scored all three runners who were off with the pitch for what proved to be the game-winning hit. Per Elias Sports, it was the first three-run single by a Red Sox hitter...

Bogaerts makes push for final All-Star spot

Xander Bogaerts would love to be an All-Star, but now it’s in the hands of the fans.

Bogaerts is a candidate for the final vote after Royals manager Ned Yost made utilityman Brock Holt the team’s lone All-Star.

“It’s been an honor to be mentioned in that category in the Final Vote,” Bogaerts said on Tuesday. “I’m definitely happy for Brock, good teammate, good friend of mine. We’ll see what happens. The main focus right now is just helping the team win. We’ve got a huge homestand right now with [the Marlins], especially the Yankees coming in. Just trying to keep focused right there.

“At least I have another chance. It’s not that I’m completely out. I have a chance with the...

Napoli believes: 'I'm a good baseball player'

Mike Napoli isn’t giving up, but the clock is ticking on his Red Sox career.

The slumping first baseman was once again benched on Tuesday night, this time in favor of Triple A call-up Travis Shaw. Napoli is hitting just .192 and hasn’t started since Saturday (he finished Sunday’s win over the Astros as a defensive replacement).

He spent time before Tuesday’s game in the cage with hitting coaches Chili Davis and Victor Rodriguez. He’s confident he’ll find a way to regain his form.

“I wake up every day thinking, ‘Today is the day,'” Napoli said. “I’m a confident person. I’ve been doing this for a long time. I know I’m one swing away from feeling what I need to feel. I’...
