Deeper and deeper: Sox blown out again

The Red Sox continued their downward spiral in a 7-1 blowout loss to the A's on Saturday night, the team's fifth straight defeat to start a nine-game West Coast swing. With the loss, the Sox fell to 62-72, the first time that the club has been 10 games under .500 since July 17, 1997, when the team was 42-52.

The Sox managed just one run and three hits over seven innings against Oakland starter A.J. Griffin. Indeed, Griffin had a no-hitter through 4 2/3 innings before Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia bunted for a single. The Sox have now scored just eight runs in their last four games and 13 over their five-game roadtrip. Dustin Pedroia delivered the Sox' only run of the game with an RBI single in the sixth, extending his hitting streak to 12 games with his 1-for-4 effort.

That lone run, however, came too late to matter for the Sox. Coco Crisp gave the A's a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first by launching a leadoff homer to left against Sox...

Valentine on lineup: 'Just a mistake'

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine offered reporters in Oakland a puzzling explanation of a lineup on Saturday night in Oakland that featured outfielder Scott Podsednik in the third slot of the batting order for the first time in his career.

"Just a mistake," Valentine said in response to his deployment of Podsednik. "Is that what it says on the lineup? What the [expletive]? Switch it up. Who knows? Maybe it will look good. I haven’t seen it."

Valentine's Sox entered Saturday with a 62-71 record, good for a .466 winning percentage that is tied for the third worst of any team he's managed from the first day of spring training.

Bad turnover: BC sloppy in loss to Miami

CHESTNUT HILL -- True freshman Duke Johnson had touchdown runs of 54 and 56 yards and Boston College lost two of four fumbles as the Miami Hurricanes beat the Eagles, 41-32, Saturday at Alumni Stadium in the ACC and season opener for both teams. Johnson, a standout high school running back heavily recruited by Alabama, finished the day with 135 yards on just seven carries. Eagles quarterback Chase Rettig threw for 441 yards and two touchdowns in the loss. 

Rettig got off to a blazing start, leading the Eagles on scoring drives of 75 and 70 yards on the opening two possessions of the game. Andre Williams capped the first scoring drive of the day with a four-yard TD run. Rettig connected with Jake Sinkovec on a short pass out in the flat that Sinkovec turned into a 15-yard touchdown. The score put the Eagles up, 14-0. 

But the Hurricanes responded with a 1-yard run from Eduardo Clements that pulled the Hurricanes within seven, 14-7,...

Rich Hill only Sox addition on Sept. 1

With the major league roster limit expanding from 25 to 40 for Sept. 1, the Red Sox are set to add left-hander Rich Hill to the big league roster as their only immediate call-up. With Triple-A Pawtucket likely to reach the International League playoffs, the Red Sox appear to be waiting until the PawSox' season ends before making further roster additions.

Hill is 1-0 with a 2.63 ERA in 17 big league appearances this year, having returned at the end of April just under 11 months after undergoing Tommy John surgery. However, he was placed on the DL in early June due to a strained flexor tendon in his left forearm. He remained out until August, but performed well over three stops (the Rookie Level Gulf Coast League, Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket), allowing one hit and striking out five over five scoreless innings and appearances with the PawSox.
