Red Sox want Yawkey Way renamed - perhaps for David Ortiz


However, the damage could have been much greater. The hard-throwing lefty has allowed runs in three straight games.

Under general managers Dick O'Connell (1961-62, 1965-77) and Dan Duquette (1994-2002) in particular, the Red Sox' roster construction began to be handled with a far more color-blind style, and the complexion of the Red Sox began to resemble other teams.

Chris Sale got his first look at the NY part of the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry when he pitched for Boston last Sunday night in the Bronx.

That incredible first pitch, and the photographs it generated, aren't the only reason this was a remarkable game though.

It was his 16th double-digit strikeout game of the season and his 51st career. Even though the Yankees have dropped three of the past four in the regular-season series, they still have a lot of confidence heading into this matchup against their chief rivals.
