Pablo Sandoval is a hacker - he swings at nearly half of all pitches outside the strike zone - so when he admits he's never swung at a higher pitch before, you know you gotta see the video.

Hanley Ramirez hopes to be in tonight's lineup.

The Red Sox are 7 GB in the East, the closest the team has been to first place since June 13. ... Baseball Prosepctus gives Boston a 3.5% chance at winning the division and a 6.4% chance at being one of the two wild cards. ... Fangraphs gives them a 6.4% chance at the East and 11% at a WC spot.

Speier, on Sandoval's swing:
"According to ESPN Stats & Info, the pitch was 5.1 feet off the ground – the highest pitch put in play in the majors in the last five seasons."
