Greetings from Gate 36

LOS ANGELES — Good morning from Los Angeles International Airport. We’re here waiting to catch a flight back to Boston after a long month of travel.

The Red Sox have been in Houston, Kansas City, Toronto, Boston, San Francisco, and Los Angeles the last 19 days. They survived and will return to Fenway Park on Tuesday in first place. There’s not a fan who wouldn’t have signed up for that when the season started in April.

It was easy to leave Dodger Stadium last night and wonder whether the Red Sox would be back in October for the World Series. The Red Sox demonstrated on this road trip how formidable their rotation is and the Dodgers certainly look like a team that can advance deep into the postseason.


We have a bunch of coverage on today:

Jake Peavy was in complete command as the Red Sox beat the Dodgers, 8-1.

Dan Shaughnessy captures the scene in LA as the Red Sox took two of three games from the Dodgers.

Nick Cafardo admits that Stephen Drew is growing on him. Could the Sox keep him?

The notebook has Ryan Dempster talking about his suspension and what happens next.

Clay Buchholz had a rocky rehab start in the minors but was feeling good. Ben Hoynes has the story.

Time to get on the plane. Hoping to watch “The Newsroom” on the HBO Go app if the wi-fi on the plane is working.

Thanks for reading all weekend.
