Jon Lester didn't feel very good warming up before the game. He couldn't have done much better once it started.
It was a long, frustrating day for the Boston Red Sox.
When their game against Boston was postponed Wednesday due to inclement weather, the Tampa Bay Rays made it clear they had no interest in playing a doubleheader Thursday.
Boston Red Sox closer Koji Uehara is still out because of stiffness in his right shoulder and it's uncertain when he will be able to pitch again.
Grady Sizemore's big hit against an old friend ensured Jon Lester finally had something to show for an impressive effort.
He's written a book. He's endorsing a Japanese beer - "please try it." And he met Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy.
Boston Red Sox pitchers Koji Uehara and Junichi Tazawa met with U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy on Tuesday during a tour to share the 2013 World Series trophy with baseball fans in the country.
The Boston Red Sox didn't just build a World Series champion in 2013.
A celebration nearly a century in the making was unfolding at the old ballpark, a long-awaited moment generations of New Englanders had never been able to witness. Turmoil to triumph. Worst to first. A clincher at Fenway Park.
David Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox, baseball's bearded wonders, capped their remarkable turnaround by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 in Game 6 on Wednesday night to win their third World Series championship in 10 seasons.
A look at Game 5 of the World Series at Busch Stadium on Monday night as the Boston Red Sox take on the St. Louis Cardinals:
Koji Uehara wasn't Boston's first choice to be closer this season.
The resilient Rays won four win-or-go-home games over the previous nine, but couldn't win another to send the best-of-five matchup back to Fenway Park for a decisive Game 5.
Jose Lobaton hit a solo home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning into the giant fish tank beyond the center-field wall, and Tampa Bay staved off elimination once again by beating the Boston Red Sox 5-4 Monday night.
Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton was hospitalized early Friday after becoming dehydrated because of an intestinal virus and likely will miss the weekend series against Houston.
"It happens every year, April, May," Uehara said through a translator. "I think even last year I didn't pitch that well."
Uehara has said he doesn't think the problem is a serious one.
