[u:1jvs5ihr]Red Sox outlast Astros in 10-9 slugfest[/u:1jvs5ihr]BOSTON — Everyone in the Boston Red Sox’s lineup is hitting these days.Even Ryan Hanigan.The backup catcher was batting just .149 (7-for-47) and had driven in four runs all season before a three-hit, four-RBI afternoon in Boston’s 10-9 win against the Houston Astros on Sunday.“We’re getting contributions up and down the lineup, and it’s fun to be a part of right now,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said after his team completed a 6-1 homestand.The Red Sox (24-14) scored a combined 73 runs during that stretch and totaled 10-plus hits in each of their past eight games, including 10 more Sunday.Boston has hit at least one home run in 16 consecutive games, its longest streak since a 19-game run from July 4-25, more: ... -slugfest/

[u:3qkrkpyg]Ortiz, Porcello lead Red Sox past Indians[/u:3qkrkpyg]BOSTON — At 40 years old, playing in his final season and never blessed with great speed, David Ortiz isn’t a strong bet to come as close to his first career cycle as he did Sunday at Fenway Park.Batting in the eighth inning of Boston’s 5-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians, the Red Sox designated hitter, needing a triple for the cycle, drove a ball deep into the triangle in right-center. It had triple written all over it — even for Ortiz.But the ball took a strange right-hand turn and bounced into the bleachers for his second ground rule double of the four-hit, three-RBI game.“I wasn’t aware of it until I was going around first base and then I saw everybody going crazy, and then I kinda realized that I could get a triple for the cycle,” Ortiz said.READ MORE: ... t-indians/
