Manny Ramirez stood at the top step of the visiting dugout at Fenway Park, leaning on the rail and looking out at the celebration on the field. Ramirez had hit a home run Saturday. He had even stolen a base. Ramirez's frequent clubhouse companion Vicente Padilla had returned to the Dodgers rotation and made it through 5 1/3 innings in his first game in nearly two months. And the Red Sox did everything they could to invite the Dodgers back into the game by committing four errors.

St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina won his sixth straight Gold Glove award, making him one of four players in the World Series rewarded for superior defense this season. Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia and right fielder Shane Victorino also were honored Tuesday, along with Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright. Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado became the 10th rookie to win a Gold Glove and first since outfielder Ichiro Suzuki in 2001. Atlanta shortstop Andrelton Simmons and Baltimore third baseman Manny Machado also were among the eight first-time recipients.

BOSTON -- Dustin Pedroia was four for four for the second consecutive game and got plenty of help from a makeshift lineup as the Boston Red Sox pounded Chicago's pitching again in an 8-2 victory Saturday night. The 5-foot-7 second baseman took over the American League lead with a .327 batting average. And he did it from the cleanup spot, the first time last year's rookie of the year batted there in the majors. Kevin Youkilis, who usually hits fourth, sat out because of illness.

Tigers Manager Jim Leyland had a big announcement to make before Game 4 of the American League Championship Series on Wednesday, and he even prefaced it as such. "Huge lineup change," Leyland said, before adding: "Really, I don't know if it's huge or not. " Whether it was the new lineup or the inefficiency of Red Sox starter Jake Peavy is debatable, but the revamped Tigers scored more runs in the first four innings than they did in the last three games in a 7-3 victory. The Tigers evened the series at two games apiece, and Anibal Sanchez, who threw six hitless innings in Game 1, faces Jon Lester on Thursday in Game 5. "I don't want to sound like this [lineup switch]

Forget the five seasons he took Boston to the playoffs. Or the two times he won the World Series there. Terry Francona is clearly doing his best managing job this summer, keeping the hobbled Red Sox within striking distance of another postseason berth. Entering the weekend, only Minnesota, among American League teams, had won more games in August than the streaking Red Sox, who are without Kevin Youkilis , Jacoby Ellsbury and former most valuable player Dustin Pedroia and probably will be for the rest of the season.

Technically speaking, Arte Moreno owns the Angels. But these days, on the field at least, so do the Boston Red Sox. Boston completed a four-game sweep of the Angels on Sunday, beating them 7-0 before 35,107 at Angel Stadium behind a brilliant performance from former Angels ace John Lackey. The Red Sox have taken 13 of 14 from the Angels since the start of the 2010 season and outscored them 20-5 in this series. "Those guys took it to us," said Angels Manager Mike Scioscia, who met with the team after it was shut out for the second consecutive game and told his players to mentally move past the sweep.

It took only one bad pitch from Justin Verlander to decide Game 3 of the American League Championship Series on Tuesday at Comerica Park. But one was enough for Boston Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli. With Verlander continuing the Detroit Tigers' dominant string of starting performances, Napoli hit a home run in the seventh inning to give the Red Sox a 1-0 victory and a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. "The boy took care of me once again," Red Sox starter John Lackey said.

Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is bracing for the possibility of having season-ending surgery on his broken left foot. Pedroia will have a CT scan on Friday. He says if the exam doesn't show sufficient healing, he will have a screw put in his foot. The injury originally occurred in late June. Pedroia returned for two games in August, then went back on the 15-day disabled list. He and the Red Sox hoped for his return this month, but his recovery hasn't gone as swiftly as anticipated.

With two on and two out in the ninth inning of a tied game, Manager Joe Torre phoned the bullpen. He wanted Jonathan Broxton to enter the game early to send the game into extra innings. Broxton couldn't. With a 1-1 count against Dustin Pedroia, he tried to hit the outside part of the plate and watched Pedroia send it into right field. Andre Ethier's throw was wide and Daniel Nava made it home to lift the Boston Red Sox to a 5-4, walk-off victory over the Dodgers.
