First looks, final touches: Giants beat Pats

FOXBORO -- BenJarvus Green-Ellis scored on a pair of short touchdown runs while Tom Brady and the starting offensive unit played the entire first quarter before the Giants rallied in the second half for an 18-17 win at Gillette Stadium Thursday night in the preseason finale for both teams. 

Brady and the starters got a quick opportunity when Domenik Hixon was stripped by Rob Ninkovich, losing a catch from David Carr on the game's first play from scrimmage. Patrick Chung returned it to the 1-yard line, where Brady handed off to Green-Ellis for the easy TD. Devin McCourty intercepted Carr on the Giants' next drive, setting up a 31-yard Stephen Gostkowski field goal. 

Brady played the next three full series, completing 5-of-9 passes for 116 yards, including a 64-yard catch-and-run by Matthew Slater in the first quarter. The catch set up Green-Ellis' second 1-yard TD plunge, putting the Patriots up 17-3.

Haynesworth, Ellis make Pats debuts

FOXBORO -- Both Albert Haynesworth and Shaun Ellis suited up for Thursday night's game in warmups in expectation of their preseason debuts for the Patriots. The Gillette Stadium crowd wasn't disappointed as both saw first-half action, with Haynesworth recording two tackles and Ellis picking up a sack of David Carr late in the second quarter. 

Haynesworth spent several weeks following his trade to New England rehabbing his sore knee and dealing with a simple assault case in Washington. He joined the team in full pads practice last week and practiced this week. 

Ellis was signed after the Jets released the 34-year-old defensive lineman this summer. 

The Patriots also dressed Mike Wright, who also saw his first game action in the first half on the defensive line. 

Tom Brady suited up and took part in full warmups with Wes Welker, Danny Woodhead and Chad Ochocinco. The starting quarterback played the first half with...

Youkilis to be activated Friday, Drew not yet

Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis will be activated for Friday's game against the Rangers, manager Terry Francona announced on Thursday. Youkilis has been out of the Red Sox lineup since Aug. 17 with a back injury and would be first eligible to come off the disabled list Friday. In two rehab games for Triple-A Pawtucket, Youkilis was 2-for-8 with a walk and solo home run. He played all nine innings at third base Wednesday night in Rochester, N.Y., for the PawSox and returned to Boston Thursday to work out with the team before being activated. Francona said he expects Youkilis to be ready to play every day upon his arrival, although he added that the coaching staff would monitor his health as he plays.

While Youkilis is set to return, right fielder J.D. Drew suffered a setback as he jammed one of his knuckles during his rehab assignment. Francona said that the doctors told him Drew could play "as tolerated" but added that Drew is sore. The...

Jackson, Doubront added to Sox roster

The first of September is the day on the baseball calendar when teams can expand their rosters for the stretch run, and the Red Sox did just that before Thursday's game with the Yankees by adding the recently-acquired utilityman Conor Jackson and minor league pitcher Felix Doubront to their major league roster. 

Boston made a last-minute trade with Oakland for Jackson Wednesday night. (If the trade had occurred a day later, Jackson would not have been eligible to make the Red Sox postseason roster.) Jackson, who has played the corner outfield and infielder spots, hit .249 with four home runs and 38 RBI in 102 games for the A's this season prior to the trade. He is expected to compete with Darnell McDonald for at-bats as the primary right-handed backup outfielder with the Sox, although his versatility at first and third base could get him some chances at those positions as well.

While Jackson joins the Red Sox for the first time, Doubront...

Lineup: Pedroia in cleanup spot vs. Burnett

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia returns to the cleanup spot in the order Thursday night as the team takes on the Yankees in the rubber match of a three-game series. Perdoia owns a .338/.393/.584/.977 batting line when hitting fourth this season to go along with five doubles, four home runs and 14 RBI in 19 games. He hit second in the lineup in Wednesday's 9-5 win over New York after 12 straight games in the fourth spot.

With Pedroia back hitting cleanup, Marco Scutaro moves up to hit second behind leadoff hitter Jacoby Ellsbury after hitting ninth Wednesday. Scutaro has reached base safely in 15 of his last 16 games and owns an average of .317 over that span. 

Pedroia, Scutaro and the rest of the Red Sox lineup will take on Yankees starter A.J. Burnett, who has struggled mightily lately as he was 1-2 with an 11.91 ERA over his five starts in August. The Red Sox will counter Burnett with lefty Jon Lester, who comparatively was 3-2 with an...
