Post-Extreme Rules RAW! What's forthcoming for Evolution? Their monster Kane could not supplant Daniel Bryan as WWE Champion with Dolph Ziggler in the way. They saw Wade Barrett win the Intercontinental title, but failed to beat the Shield. Triple H had bragged beforehand that they didn't want war with his dominant force. He knew the Shield's names and he would spell them in their obituaries. Roman Reigns lauded it as the Fall of the King. Of course, the Game always has something up his sleeve.. there must be a Plan B if he wants to maintain control.

*Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns arrive from the crowd, very pleased with their victory last night. Rollins proclaims that the Shield are the new rulers of the world. When they are a unit, there's nothing stopping them. Not even the top stable on RAW in the last decade could defeat them when they're on their game. Ambrose notes they proved that when their mind is on destruction, they could eviscerate any opponent in their way. The COO's comments about them not being able to do their job and take out Daniel Bryan were ludicrous. Reigns takes the mic and says that they were sick of being puppets, that was never the plan in the first place. But when Triple H made it personal, they made him their direct target and eliminated his group. There was no way any team could take the mantle of having a cohesive impact like the Shield did in one year. Rollins finishes by saying that last night's thrashing convinces any doubters that Hunter can try and control RAW because no number of his goons can take down the Shield. Their core plan was fixing injustice, and no corruption in management will be tolerated.

King of Kings sounds, and here comes Triple H, Wade Barrett, Randy Orton, Del Rio, and Sheamus. Why does he have a damn smirk on his face? The Game decrees that while they did not quite stop the Shield, he does have a clear vision of what will happen going forward. His best men are in place and they will be RAW's next headliners. They are best for business and will ensure that the WWE championship and the RAW brand are in the right hands. Daniel Bryan got lucky once or twice, but he cannot hope to outlast all of Evolution's members.

Cal Clutterbuck added the finishing touches to a much needed win for the Islanders with an empty-net-goal in a 2-0 win over his former team, the Minnesota Wild, Tuesday night at Xcel Energy Center.

NOTES: Michael Grabner sustained an injury in the third period which could lead to another trip on the IRL, but Captain John Tavares may be back for Thursdays game against Dallas.

Felix shuts door on Padres to end skid for M's

Seattle - Felix Hernandez continued his hot ptiching, and the Padres had no answers on Tuesday, as the Mariners were able to take a 3-0 win. The lone offense came from a three run homer from John Buck in the second inning, as the Mariners didn't score after that, but the king allowed just two hits over seven strong innings before turning it over to the bullpen to finish this one off. The two teams now jet to San Diego to play the other two games of this four game split-series tomorrow. It'll be Hisashi Iwakuma (5-5, 3.32 ERA) on the hill for Seattle taking on Andrew Cashner (8-3, 2.17 ERA).

Falling behind and staying behind has become the new trend for the New York Islanders as they've continued their downward trend, losing to their divisional foe, the New Jersey Devils, 3-0 Saturday night at Prudential Center.

NOTES: The Islanders, who have fallen to fourth place in the Metropolitan division, are currently a team without a playoff position... the Islanders will head to Minnesota for their next contest.

TORONTO, ON - The season is coming to a close and with only 17 games left the Red Sox currently enjoy a 14 game lead in the AL East. Thanks to their incredible August they now share the best record in baseball with the Dodgers. A trip to Toronto, desperate for wins, would be on the slate for this week. Once again Chris Archer would dodge an ace, taking on Drew Hutchison.

The two starters would both toss shutout innings through the 3rd when Boston would get to Hutchison. A hit and a walk would put two on for Xander Bogaerts and he would take advantage of the opportunity with a 3R-HR.

Hutchison and Archer would keep throwing scoreless innings until the Blue Jays finally capitalized on Archer's shaky day in the 5th. The slider was definitely a problem today, and his change-up wasn't catching the corners like he had hoped. Jose Reyes started the rally with a 2R-HR, and then Edwin Encarnacion followed it up with a 2R-HR of his own.

Hutchison suddenly had a 4-3 lead, but the rain of homers wouldn't quit. The very next inning Hutchison would give up three HRs to lose the lead for good. First Dustin Pedroia would tie the game with a solo-HR, then Shane Victorino would take the lead with a 2R-HR after a Mike Napoli BB, and then Will Middlebrooks would send Hutchison packing with a solo-HR.

Archer's strike out total is now officially historic.

Archer would take a seat after the 6th with a 7-4 lead. He ended up walking 6 batters and "only" striking out 13, but it was enough to set a new single season strike out record. 384 strike outs on the season and three potential starts left, the chances of getting to 400+ was now very real. Anthony Ranaudo would come in for Archer and shut out the Blue Jays through the 9th. Uehara would come in and collect his 20th save of the season, and Boston would be one step closer to clinching the division.

BOSTON, MA - The Red Sox enter September riding a 17 game winning streak, and the way things have been going the Oakland A's all-time record is a possibility. If you ask any of the players, they won't admit the record is on their mind, but the media is buzzing about their streak. The once mighty, now 70-70, Detroit Tigers and Justin Verlander would not be interested in streaks. John Farrell is also uninterested in streaks, the coaching staff is more focused on clinching the division and punching their ticket for October.

The top of the first was a bad omen for Boston and Archer, with Elvis Andrus hitting a solo-HR off a hanging slider. It didn't take long to see that Archer's slider wasn't working, he was going to have to lean on his devastating fastball-change up combo. Luckily for Archer, slider or not, Shane Victorino bailed him out with a clutch 2RBI double with two outs to move into a 2-1 lead.

Victorino's 2RBI double put Boston ahead for good.

Mike Napoli made it 3-1 in the third with an RBI single that brought in Xander Bogaerts from 3rd. Napoli put Boston even further ahead in the 5th with a solo-HR and Will Middlebrooks copied him with one of his own. With Verlander taking a seat after 5 innings the Red Sox went further ahead in the 6th with a Jackie Bradley Jr. sac-fly.

Archer tore through a loaded Tigers offense, shutting them out through the 7th after giving up a run to start the game. Blake Swihart finished off the scoring in the 8th with an RBI single that was scored an E6 after Jose Iglesias threw the ball into the stands. The Tigers didn't help themselves on defense today with two errors, but their hitters went 4/31 with 20K to seal their defeat.

Seattle can't hang on as Padres comeback for victory

Seattle - It turned out that five outs was just too much to ask for Fernando Rodney. The closer blew his first save of the year after coming on in the 8th inning, then lost the game in the ninth as the Mariners dropped it 3-2. The Mariners had a chance in the 9th after Endy Chavez led off with a double, and was quickly moved to third by Robinson Cano. However Huston Street got Kendrys Morales to strike out, then with two outs a Seager grounder to first ended the threat, and the game. The Mariners will now look to snap out of their three game funk against Ian Kennedy (6-4, 3.44 ERA) tomorrow night, while they counter with Felix Hernadez (7-6, 2.48 ERA).

Mariners offense bottoms out in loss to Texas

Seattle - The Mariners managed just three hits, and the bullpen blew up late as the Rangers took the finale of their three game series. Taijuan Walker pitched well giving up just one earned run over six innings, but did not get any offensive support. A Robinson Cano home run in the 7th brought the score to 2-1 and it looked for a minute that the Mariners might be poised for another comeback victory, but Texas was having none of that in the next inning as bombs off of Dominic Leone by Adrian Beltre, and Alex Rios sent fans scurrying for the exits. The Mariners have now dropped back to back games after their eight game winning streak, and will look to get back on track tomorrow when they welcome the San Diego Padres into town for their annual interleague showdown. It will be Tyson Ross (5-3, 3.43 ERA) on the mound for San Diego going up against James Paxton (3-3, 3.86 ERA).

The MiLB season is over and despite the talent percolating in Boston's system the AAA and AA affiliates failed to make the playoffs. AAA Pawtucket (75-69) and AA Portland (73-69) are hardly complete teams, especially with mid-season promotions, but the talent there will keep Boston winning for years to come.

Player (Prospect Grade - John Sickels, Current Level)

3B, Garin Cecchini (Grade : B+, AAA Pawtucket)

Finished the season with a .259 batting average, which is a little concerning, but 18HR and 31SB is going to land him a spot in the majors next year. Outfield is a likely place with Middlebrooks blocking him at 3B and a desperate need for outfielders.

SS, Chris Owings (Grade : B+, AAA Pawtucket)

John Farrell is going to have his hands full with the 3B/SS/2B situation next year. Owings finished the season hitting .284 with 9HR, 61RBI, and 12SB not to mention slick defending.

RHP, Leonys Bravo (Grade : B+, AAA Pawtucket)

Really odd scenario after destroying AA, settled down after a rough start in AAA but no longer looks like a sure-fire success. Finished 5-4 with a much improved 4.08ERA and 1.26WHIP in 53IP. 69K:18BB ratio still points to greatness, but brutal splits between the first and last half of his starts are concerning.

RHP, Braden Shipley (Grade : B+, MLB)

Finished his season 2-0 with a 4.22ERA, 1.19ERA, and a promising 28K:10BB ratio out of the bullpen. Has an excellent shot at staying in the majors rather than being sent down to AAA.

LHP, Henry Owens (Grade : B+, AAA Pawtucket)

10-8 with a 3.18ERA and 1.27ERA, excellent shot at being in the MLB rotation next year.

LHP, Trey Ball (Grade : B, AAA Pawtucket)

Roughed up a little this year, but still looks like a future middle-rotation starter. 9-11, 4.43ERA, 1.44WHIP in 178IP.

RHP, Braxton Davis (Grade : B-, AAA Pawtucket)

Looked much better than Owens, but being right handed might put Owens ahead of him in the pecking order. 10-7 with a 2.84ERA, 1.17WHIP, and an impressive 152K:62BB ratio in 196.2IP. Fastball grading out at 70 with serious heat and life that will be a serious asset going forward.

1B, Issac Koufax (Grade : B-, AAA Pawtucket)

Really turned things around at the plate, finishing the season with a .313 batting average. Power fell off a bit with only 3HR and 23RBI, but with his swing most scouts still feel he could hit 25HR.

RHP, Allen Webster (Grade : C+, AAA Pawtucket)

Organization is way down on Webster, appears to have plateaued as a player. Hard to tell if Boston is going to give him a chance in the majors at all. 10-9 record isn't all that bad, but 4.01ERA and 1.52WHIP isn't helping his cause.

3B/OF, Rico Berroa (Grade : C+, AAA Pawtucket)

Something must have clicked with Berroa, finished the season with a .321 batting average. Out hit Koufax, 3HR and 25RBI, but only 6SB is not what coaches were expecting. Still a future Gold Glove defender.

SS, Pedro Santana (Grade : C+, AA Portland)

Continues to surprise after being drafted as a defense-first player. Hit .292 with 5HR and 15SB, probably won't be able to replicate that above AA but he wasn't expected to do that in AA. Still projects as a career utility man.

Players Making Noise

RHP, Roddy Gibson (Grade : C+, AA Portland)

Probably not long for AA, 5-3 with 2.61ERA, 1.33WHIP in 58.2IP. 48K:19BB ratio looks very good for such a young player, barring a serious injury he will be in Pawtucket's rotation in 2016.

BOSTON, MA - What a month for the Red Sox and their fans, nobody saw this coming. The Red Sox walk out of August with an incredible 25-3 record, mostly incredible because this team couldn't hit their weight prior to August. The key to victory; offense. After having one of the worst (30th) batting averages in baseball the Red Sox hit .319 as a team in August. Archer is finally in Cy Young contention, and Jackie Bradley Jr. is currently having an amazing season (70R-20HR-70RBI-13SB) for a lead off hitter.

Thanks to the 25-3 record Boston now owns the AL East, and barring a 3-25 September they probably aren't going to surrender the division. The Red Sox are also now 2nd in runs scored (622) and tied for 1st with the Dodgers for runs allowed (439), but LA still owns the best record in baseball at 86-49.

ST. PETERSBURG, FL - Just a little over a month left to go and Boston hit the road to face a division rival, hopefully wiping them out of the division title race. The Rays would trot out their ace, David Price, in an attempt to keep the division race under 10 games. Chris Archer, once traded away by the Rays, would be very motivated to crush them.

Boston stuck it to Tampa Bay almost immediately, with a Dustin Pedroia double that scored Xander Bogaerts from 1st. Mike Napoli followed Pedroia with a 2R-HR that glanced off the LF foul pole for a 3-0 lead in the 1st. Jackie Bradley Jr. added to their lead in the 2nd with a solo-HR and Victorino made it 5-0 with an RBI single.

Through five and a half innings it looked like yet another Boston blow-out paired with an Archer gem, but the Rays managed to make it interesting in the bottom of 6th. Despite shutting out Tampa Bay, Archer's slider was not cooperating and he was issuing free passes at an alarming rate. It finally caught up to him, putting two men on, and the umps didn't help. With one out Mike Napoli caught a hard line drive to 1st, catching Wil Myers off guard, and rushed toward 1st for the inning ending double play. Myers, trying to get back to the bag, ran into Napoli and knocked him down but the ump failed to call it an out that would end the inning. After a length discussion between Farrell and the umps, the game went on and James Loney hit a 3R-HR. Farrell rushed out and continued his discussion with the umps, and kept discussing until he was thrown out of the game.

Napoli fueled the hot Red Sox offense once again.

Archer, clearly rattled, came back out for the 7th and things were still not going his way. Archer loaded the bases on walks, rarely getting strikes called properly, and then walked Wil Myers on a clear strike three that scored Jayson Werth. Archer would close out the inning and end his day, but 8BB and 4R with only 2H allowed would mar his potential win.

With a 5-4 lead Boston pulled father ahead with a Shane Victorino RBI double that scored Bogaerts from 2nd, and then Will Middlebrooks drove in Victorino to make it 7-4. Grant Balfour came in for the 9th, and he couldn't even get two outs. Mookie Betts hit an RBI double to score Blake Swihart from second, and then Balfour loaded the bases for Napoli. Napoli returned the favor with a Grand Slam that ended Balfour's evening, and capped off a 12-4 beating and a 10 game lead in the AL East.

CLEVELAND, OH - With August coming to a close, things couldn't be better for the Red Sox. A 19-3 record in August has stunned everyone and put Boston in the AL East drivers seat. A sudden explosion in offense, along with their already excellent pitching, has helped turn this season around. A trip to Cleveland, and a date with Danny Salazar, probably wouldn't do much to slow down Chris Archer or the red hot Boston hitters.

Will Middlebrooks started things off in the 2nd inning with a solo-HR, and then Mookie Betts did the same in the 3rd. Dustin Pedroia made it 3-0 Boston with an RBI double after a Xander Bogaerts double to head into the bottom of the 3rd up 3-0.

Archer had little trouble going through the Indians lineup, once again his slider was working for him and keeping the walks down. Salazar managed to hold things together through the 4th, but the 5th inning basically ended the game. After putting two men on with no outs in the 5th Salazar was benched in favor of Josh Beckett. Jakcie Bradley Jr. started things of with an RBI single followed by a Boagerts RBI single and Shane Victorino capped off the carnage with a 3R-HR.

Cleveland had nothing left in the tank, and Archer breezed through 7 scoreless innings with 16K. Today's win gives Boston a sizable AL East lead, but they couldn't possibly continue winning at this pace.

BOSTON, MA - The Red Sox, now having one hell of a month, head back home this week for a series against the AL East front-runner Texas Rangers. Chris Archer wouldn't be all that intimidated about facing Darvish, but he dodged a bullet by going up against Tanner Scheppers today.

As usual (lately) the Red Sox struck first in the 2nd inning with a Will Middlebrooks 2R-HR, and then he homered again in the 4th to put Boston up 3-0. Blake Swihart added two more with a HR of his own with David Ortiz on 1st to go up 5-0.

Archer, normally prone to walking batter, tore right through the Rangers today with great ease. His issue with walks seems to come down to his nemesis; the slider. When his slider is sweeping across the plate, staying low, and catching the corner of the strike zone it's devastating. When Archer's slider is on, righties can't hit it, but when it's off it's a HR waiting to happen.

Middlebrooks 2HRs powers Boston past Texas.

It took seven innings before the Rangers managed to get on the board, and it took a series of hits to do it, with Leonys Martin driving in a run with a single. Boston came right back with a Dustin Pedroia RBI double to make it 6-1. Archer went 8 strong and finished the game with 6H, one BB, and 17K. Archer's strikeout rate has gone from a streak to a season long phenomenon, and the single-season K record is starting to look like a possibility.
