Eduardo Nunez might be the spark the Red Sox offense needs

Pedroia, who leads the Red Sox with a.307 batting average, is on the DL for the second time this season. The Sox don't hit many home runs (a league-worst 107 in 108 games) and are prone to quick bursts of offense sandwiched between long scoreless droughts. He had to leap high above the fence and stretch to reach the ball and get it in his glove, then hang on when his momentum sent him crashing into the Red Sox bullpen.

Legendary announcer Bob Costas, who was calling the game for the MLB Network, described Jackson's play as: 'one of the greatest catches you will ever see'. Did he hold onto the ball? However, the ruling on the field was overturned upon replay review, giving Longoria his double and the cycle.

"That was one of the most exciting plays I've seen in a long, long time".

Fister, 0-5 with a 7.46 ERA in seven outings (four starts) with Boston coming in, had a shutout into the eighth but was pulled after allowing a two-run homer to Bradley Zimmer. The move earned the Bronx Bombers a heap of praise from experts, many of whom now view them as a lock to keep the Red Sox at bay and win their first AL East title since 2012.

But fortunes changed again.

The bullpen followed suit, as Andrew Miller / Cody Allen / Craig Kimbrel all blew leads, despite being known as some of the best relievers in all of baseball.

Not to be outdone in the ninth inning, Kimbrel gave up a leadoff homer to Francisco Lindor and allowed the go-ahead run to score on a wild pitch.

With hits in his last four games, he said he's feeling a bit better. It may not seem possible that the Sox could be back in first place, largely due to all the negativity that has followed the club.

Embroiled in an ongoing off-the-field rhubarb with the team over his critical analysis on TV, Eckersley made a previously scheduled appearance Tuesday in Fenway Park's "Legends Suite", which hosts a former player at each Red Sox home game. As insane, as thrilling, as attractive a ball game as any fan, and even I suspect, non-fan, could ask for.

Moreland had just two doubles in July and the Red Sox lost both of those games. Giants closer Mark Melancon (right pronator strain) will pitch for San Jose in his next rehab appearance Wednesday.
