Boston Red Sox fans will get a chance to boo a visitor from the Bronx two days earlier than expected. The Red Sox are in search of a season-high fourth straight win as they face the Miami Marlins' Tom Koehler for the first time Wednesday night when the Bronx-born right-hander seeks to win his fourth straight start. Boston (40-45) will host the first-place New York Yankees this weekend, trailing their archrivals by five games.
Xander Bogaerts added another clutch hit to his case for a spot in the All-Star Game. Bogaerts drove in three runs with a bases-loaded single, and the Boston Red Sox rallied to a 4-3 win over the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night. Bogaerts, one of five candidates for the final opening on the AL team, went 2 for 4 to raise his batting average to .304.

For the baseball fan who has to rep their favorite team on everything, even their headphones, comes this: a limited-edition line of headphones that's a collaboration between Beats By Dr. Dre and MLB. The baseball logo-emblazoned Beats were announced Tuesday, featuring five teams plus a set decorated in honor of this year's All-Star game in Cincinnati. The teams aren't surprising, considering what we know about market size and merchandise popularity. The five teams picked are the ones that sell best: the Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees and San Francisco Giants. The All-Star version is available now. The others are available for pre-order. Here's a look:

The best record in the American League belongs to the 48-36 Houston Astros, and it's going to stay that way if they keep getting plays like the one center fielder Jake Marisnick made Sunday. Taking on the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, Marisnick showed off his sparkling defensive skills in the sixth inning when Brock Holt lifted a fly ball to left-center field that look destined to carom off the Green Monster for extra bases. Not on Marisnick's watch though. [ Check out Big League Stew on Tumblr for even more baseball awesomeness. ] Running full sprint to his right, Marisnick crashed into the iconic wall and caught the ball mid-jump. It's definitely one of the best defensive highlights we've seen this season. However, despite Marisnick's efforts, the Red Sox went onto win the game 5-4. The Green Monster is infamously unforgiving. The way Marisnick went for the ball without any fear is pretty impressive, especially considering he had just been activated off the DL before the game. He even received a round of applause from the fans in Boston for his trouble. Real recognize real. That's what the cool kids say, right?
