Boston Red Sox

Christian Vazquez collects his first three major league hits and drives in three runs against the Houston Astros.
Larry Lucchino tells Dan Shaughnessy that the Red Sox '[threw] a number out to get [contract] negotiations started' with Jon Lester, but that low-ball offer seems to have frozen the talks.
Three Thursday takeaways: Koji's better at night. Drew's much better in the field than at the plate. Vazquez better listen to Ross.

Team talk

    Welcome to First Pitch, a quick spin around the world of Major League Baseball . . . or at least the corner of it that most concerns the Red Sox

    The Fenway fans sing 'Sweet Caroline' no matter what -- even if the Sox have blown a lead in the top of the eighth inning, as happened three times on this homestand -- and Bob Ryan calls it 'a national embarrassment'.
  • 2y
    The Sox' designed hitter says he's never seen a team go through a stretch where it's done so poorly after playing well most of the year.
  • 2y
    They've lost 16 of their last 21, but the Red Sox remain confident they'll find their footing again in the last week of the season.
  • 2y
    According to ESPN, the Domincan Winter League in which the ex-Red Sox slugger planned to play is affiliated with Major League Baseball and will honor Ramirez' 50-game suspension for PED use.
  • 2y
    When the Red Sox needed Josh Beckett most, he couldn't come through for them. Sure, he made it into the eighth inning, but at the cost of six runs. That certainly won't do it.
  • 2y
    The Red Sox lose the fourth and final game of the series vs. the Orioles and lose three of four to them overall. The magic number, however, fell to five after two Rays losses Wednesday.
