Cubs Acquire Pitcher Felix Doubront from the Red Sox

Cubs Acquire Pitcher Felix Doubront from the Red Sox

Sarah Glenn/Getty Images(BOSTON) — Pitcher Felix Doubront seemed to be in need of change, and the Boston Red Sox are granting him that as they’ve traded him to the Chicago Cubs for a low-level prospect after the Rule 5 draft.
While Doubront had little regular success recently, he did pitch very well for the team during their run to a World Series Championship last season in which he posted a 1.29 ERA in 7.0 innings.
“He has performed well for us over a period of time,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said of Doubront. “And it can’t be understated the importance of his relief appearances last year in the World Series. Those were two pivotal outings by him and he did a great job.”
Splitting time as a reliever and starter this season, Doubront struggled mightily. In 17 appearances, he’s 2-4 with a 6.07 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP.
Right-hander Brandon Workman was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to take Doubront’s spot on the 25-man roster.

ESPN: Giants Acquire Starting Pitcher Jake Peavy from the Red Sox

ESPN: Giants Acquire Starting Pitcher Jake Peavy from the Red Sox

Tom Szczerbowksi/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — One of the best teams in the National League has gotten a little bit better as ESPN and other outlets are reporting that the Boston Red Sox have traded starting pitcher Jake Peavy to the San Francisco Giants.
In return, the Red Sox will receive prospects Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree
This marks the second time in as many seasons that the former National League Cy Young winner has been traded. Last season, the Red Sox received Peavy from the Chicago White Sox to help bolster their rotation.
The 33-year-old Peavy is not the pitcher he once was, but going back to the National Leauge where he started his career could be just what he needs.
In 20 starts this season, Peavy is just 1-9 with a 4.72 ERA and a WHIP of 1.43.
Peavy will now go from a team in the Red Sox that will struggle to get back to the postseason this year, to a Giants team that is currently in first place in the NL West.

Red Sox Sweep Royals Behind Lester’s Gem

Red Sox Sweep Royals Behind Lester’s Gem

Lisa Blumenfield/Getty Images(BOSTON) — Jon Lester tossed eight shutout innings, striking out eight batters in a 6-0 Red Sox win over Kansas City on Sunday. The win was the fourth in a row for Boston (46-52), giving them a sweep over the Royals (48-49) at Fenway Park.
The Boston ace dominated, allowing no earned runs for the third time in four starts.
Throughout the 2014 season, the talk about Lester off the field has been surrounding his impending free agency. The southpaw can become a free agent at the end of the season and has been pitching without negotiating a new contract during the year. In his last seven starts, Lester is 4-0 with a 0.85 earned run average.
“You’ve got to take each one as an individual,” Lester said. “If I’m out there thinking about what I did last time, I’m not worried about the right things.”
His offense gave Lester more than enough run support, beginning in the first with an RBI groundout from Dustin Pedroia. Daniel Nava drove in three runs on the day, including a two-run double in the third. The game was blown open in the fourth after David Ross’ two-run home run made it a 5-0 Red Sox lead.

Ruth’s 1918 Red Sox Contract Sells For One Million Dollars

Ruth’s 1918 Red Sox Contract Sells For One Million Dollars

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — At an auction in Baltimore, Md., Babe Ruth’s 1918 contract with the Boston Red Sox was sold for $1.02 million on Saturday night. When it was originally sold almost 100 years ago, the deal was worth just $5,000.
The contract was signed by American League president Ban Johnson, Red Sox owner Harry Frazee, and Ruth himself. The price tag eclipsed the record for a bidding price of a sports contract, surpassing the 1919 document that sent Ruth to the New York Yankees, which sold for $996,000 back in 2005.
The item was part of a collection of Ruth memorabilia, designed to honor the 100th anniversary of his professional debut. Other items included a bat from early in his career and a signed ball, both of which fetched more than $95,000. One of the more intriguing items, the very first home run ball Ruth ever hit at Yankee Stadium, did not sell. The ball was collected by a construction worker when Ruth was called over to test out the dimensions of the new ballpark in February of 1923.
Other items that were up for auction on Saturday included ticket stubs from the clinching game of each of New York’s 27 championship years ($58,000) and a Super Bowl VIII ring from the 1972 Miami Dolphins perfect season ($19,000).

Red Sox Walk-Off for Second Straight Night

Red Sox Walk-Off for Second Straight Night

iStockphoto(BOSTON) — For the second consecutive night, the Boston Red Sox walked-off against the Chicago White Sox in an afternoon affair at Fenway Park on Thursday.
Mike Carp’s pinch-hit single in the bottom of the tenth scored Daniel Nava to give Boston (41-51) the win.
For Carp, it was a grateful return to the lineup after missing more than a month with a broken right foot. After being placed on the disabled list back on June 2, Carp was activated Monday before delivering a game-winner on Thursday.
“Some of the nights, I almost had to turn the TV off in those situations because you can’t be there to help,” said Carp. “It’s tough being on the DL with a boot on my foot.”
The Red Sox trailed 1-0 early but scored three runs in the sixth against Jose Quintana to take the lead.
Chicago (44-49) tied things up in the ninth when Koji Uehara gave up a two-run homer to Conor Gillaspie, forcing extra innings. 
Nava led off the bottom of the tenth with a pinch-hit walk before being advanced to second on Mookie Betts’ sacrifice bunt. Stephen Drew was intentionally walked to set up the double play, but Carp singled to left field for the winning run.
It is the eighth time this season that Boston has won in walk-off fashion.

Cruz Leads Orioles in DH Split with Boston

Cruz Leads Orioles in DH Split with Boston

Jim Rogash/Getty Images(BOSTON) — After Jonathan Herrera’s walk-off, pinch-hit single gave the Boston Red Sox a 3-2 win in Game One of a doubleheader, Nelson Cruz went 5-for-5 to lead Baltimore to a 7-4 win in the nightcap on Saturday. Cruz finished the second game mere inches from the cycle, being tagged out trying to stretch a double into a triple.
The Red Sox (39-48) took the first game on the strength of Jon Lester’s impressive pitching. The southpaw tossed eight innings, giving up two unearned runs, while striking out seven in a no-decision. He was matched by Miguel Gonzalez, who struck out six in eight innings. Johnny Gomes beat out an infield single to lead off the ninth. He was sacrificed to second by David Ross before scoring on Herrera’s broken bat looper to right.
In the nightcap, the Orioles (47-40) jumped out to a 2-0 lead thanks to Nick Hundley’s fourth inning homer. Boston tied things up on Stephen Drew’s second homer of the day before adding two more in the home half. Baltimore would then score five unanswered runs en route to a split. Cruz homered in the fifth after doubling and lacing a single in his previous two at-bats. His infield single in the sixth chased Red Sox starter John Lackey. Cruz’s fifth hit of the night came in the eighth with a double to left-center but he was thrown out trying to leg it into a triple.
“I had to try and see what happened,” Cruz said, smiling. “I don’t remember the last time I hit a triple.”

Napoli’s Homer Helps Sox Beat Tanaka

Napoli’s Homer Helps Sox Beat Tanaka

Rich Schultz/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Masahiro Tanaka tossed a complete nine innings but took the loss as the Boston Red Sox beat New York 2-1 on Saturday night. Mike Napoli hit a solo home run in the top of the ninth to break a 1-1 tie and cement the win.
Tanaka (11-3) battled hard with Red Sox starter Jon Lester (9-7), who pitched eight innings allowing just one run. Boston (37-44) took a 1-0 lead in the third inning on a David Ross homer and left the rest in the hands of their ace lefty. Lester struck out six in his eight frames before handing the ball over to Koji Uehara in the ninth.
The Yankees (41-38) tied things up in the home half of the third on a ground out from Derek Jeter. Both pitchers then battled inning-by-inning to maintain the deadlock. Lester held New York hitless until the sixth inning before giving up a single to Brett Gardner.
With Tanaka matching his counterpart, the game look destined for extras. Napoli, who had struck out in his previous two at-bats, took advantage of a mistake for his 10th homer of the season. It was just the third win in nine games for the defending World Series champs. Uehara earned his 17th save by throwing a perfect ninth inning.

Ortiz Homer Lifts Red Sox Past Tigers

Ortiz Homer Lifts Red Sox Past Tigers

Duane Burleson/Getty Images(DETROIT, Mich.) — David Ortiz launched a three-run home run to right field in the top of the ninth as the Boston Red Sox came from behind to defeat the Detroit Tigers 5-3 on Sunday night. The win snapped a five game losing streak for Boston (28-34), and was the team’s first win against Detroit (33-26) this season.
The Red Sox took the initial lead on a Dustin Pedroia sacrifice fly in the third before Detroit answered with runs in the third and fourth innings. Victor Martinez doubled home Miguel Cabrera to give the Tigers a 2-1 advantage in the fourth. 
Both starting pitchers were able to keep their team in the game as it approached the late innings. Detroit’s Anibal Sanchez went six innings before turning things over to the bullpen while John Lackey (7-4) tossed eight frames allowing just two earned runs.
After Mike Napoli homered in his return from the disabled list to tie things up, Eugenio Suarez laced his second RBI single of the night to left to give Detroit a 3-2 lead after eight innings. Boston had a chance to take the lead in the seventh when Brock Holt tripled to begin the inning, however Phil Coke was able to reitre the side, including inducing a deep flyout off the bat of Ortiz.
Joba Chamberlain (1-3) pitched the ninth in favor of struggling closer Joe Nathan, who threw 32 pitches the previous night. Holt again started the rally with a leadoff single before Pedroia worked a one out walk. Then, with Napoli looming on-deck, Ortiz blasted his 14th homer of the year, giving Boston the lead. Koji Uehara threw a perfect bottom of the ninth to earn his 12th save of the season.
