Morales sent to DL, Bowden recalled

Newly-acquired lefty reliever Franklin Morales has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Red Sox with a left forearm strain. The move prompted the Sox to recall righty reliever Michael Bowden, who had been with the Sox briefly earlier in the season but did not appear in a game.

Franklin, who was acquired from the Rockies on May 19, has appeared in just two games for the Red Sox, giving up four runs over three innings. Bowden has struggled since returning to Triple-A Pawtucket on May 20, giving up nine runs over 3 1/3 innings. He last pitched Friday night, allowing five runs over just 1/3 innings against Indianapolis.

Gonzalez: AL pitchers coming right at me

Adrian Gonzalez joined Sports Saturday to talk about the adjustments he has made since coming to the Red Sox, most notably how American League pitchers are approaching him differently. Gonzalez surmised that the dip in walks -- he's drawn just 16 free passes after averaging 95 in each of his last three seasons -- is due in part to the Red Sox' potent lineup.

“I think it is a product of having people around me, getting more pitches,” Gonzalez said. “Also, the American league teams, they’re coming right after me. They haven’t seen me play much and they feel that there’s a way to pitch to me, so they’re throwing strikes. … If they’re showing me that they’re going to be aggressive and attack the strike zone, I’ve got to be aggressive in return because I’m not going to let them just get to 0-2 and try to have better power from there. Being in a new league, new teams are wanting to attack...

Jacobs: Hope family owns B's next 36 years

Speaking to the media at TD Garden prior to the Bruins' practice Sunday morning, team owner Jeremy Jacobs talked about his intentions for the future of the franchise now that the B's find themselves in the Stanley Cup finals. 

"I'm extremely proud to own this franchise. In a sense, I use the word custodian, I'm a great civic asset here. We're in good shape," Jacobs said. "The family is fortunately in position where we can continue to own this franchise for generations going forward. I think we will continue to be in that position. I think the environment and spirit is such that we will see this continue to be energized forward from within.

"We've brought great stability to this franchise. This franchise has been here under the Jacobs family for 36 years and I would proud if it could stay there for the next 36 years."

Jacobs, who has owned the Bruins since 1975, also referenced his son, Charlie, who serves as the...
