Oct 29, 2013 — Boston's David Ortiz is flirting with a World Series record. He's got 11 hits in 15 at-bats. That .733 batting average eclipses the rest of his team's. Boston players not named Ortiz are hitting .144. The Sox could wrap up the championship Wednesday. St. Louis hopes to extend the Series to a Game 7.
Oct 28, 2013 — A three-run homer. A dramatic out at first to end the game. And now, Boston and St. Louis head into Monday night's fifth game with the best-of-seven series tied at two games apiece.

Aug 19, 2013 — Alex Rodriguez isn't the most popular person in baseball. He's appealing a 211-game suspension for allegedly violating the game's rules on performance-enhancing drugs. Sunday, Boston pitcher Ryan Dempster sure seemed to be throwing at A-Rod — and he hit the Yankee. But Rodriguez had the last laugh.
Aug 17, 2013 — Tejada reportedly has tested positive on multiple occasions for the use of the amphetamine Adderall. His suspension is one of the longest in Major League Baseball history.
