X-rays reveal Pedroia's finger broken

NEW YORK -- X-rays taken Monday afternoon revealed Dustin Pedroia suffered a break of his left ring finger, the second baseman confirmed to WEEI.com after the Red Sox' 10-2 loss to the Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

There is no particular timeline for the healing process, with the injury being monitored in the coming weeks. Pedroia will not attempt to play in either one of the team's final two games.

Pedroia injured the finger while sliding into second base on a failed stolen base attempt in Baltimore Sunday afternoon. He was out of the Red Sox' lineup Monday."

Pedroia is hitting .288 with a .790 OPS in 139 games this season, having hit 15 home runs and stolen 19 bases.

Yankees blast Buchholz as Sox lose again

NEW YORK -- The Yankees tied a franchise record by launching four homers in a nine-run second inning and then coasted to a 10-2 victory over the Red Sox. The defeat was the sixth straight for the 69-91 Red Sox, who featured a lineup that included six players who opened the year in Triple-A Pawtucket and just two members of its Opening Day roster (Cody Ross and Jarrod Saltalamacchia). 

Buchholz served as batting practice fodder for the Yankees in the second inning. He gave up a solo homer to center by Robinson Cano to start the inning, then yielded back-to-back homers to Curtis Granderson (a two-run shot, the 41st homer of the year for the center fielder) and catcher Russell Martin to put the Sox in a 4-0 hole. Two walks, an Ichiro Suzuki RBI single, a sac fly and a Cano two-run double later, Buchholz was done after just 1 2/3 innings, the third shortest start of his big league career. 

Reliever Alfredo Aceves promptly gave up a two-run...

Cashman: Sox struggles 'won't last long'

NEW YORK -- Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, whose team clinched its 14th postseason berth in 15 seasons since he became GM prior to the 1998 season, suggested that he was "proud" of his team's consistent record of reaching the playoffs but that simply securing a postseason berth offered little fulfillment.

"Bottom line is we have bigger and loftier goals, which is world champions, whatever it takes," said Cashman. "You have to be in it to win it. We're making sure we're in it enough, but we want to be able to run the table if we can more than we have."

The Yankees' consistency becomes all the more impressive in light of the fact that the Red Sox, despite ranking second to the Yankees in payroll for each of the last three years, have fallen short of the postseason in each of those seasons, including this season's 69-90 derailment that has resulted in the Sox' first 90-loss season since 1966. Cashman said that he...

Wilfork on Big Show: 'Peyton is Peyton'
By: DJ Bean

Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork made his weekly appearance on The Big Show Monday, discussing the team's 52-28 win over the Bills on Sunday and the challenges that are ahead for the team. 

Up next for the 2-2 Patriots is a matchup with Peyton Manning and the Broncos at Gillette Stadium. After having his ups and downs through the first three weeks of the season, Manning was sensation Sunday against the Raiders. In that game, a 37-6 Denver victory, Manning completed 30 of 38 passes for 338 yards with three touchdowns, no interceptions and a 130 quarterback rating. 

"Peyton is Peyton," Wilfork said. "Let's get that straight from the get-go. He's going to run that offense the way he knows how to run it. They're going to run the ball, they're going to play action pass, they're going to get the ball down. He's just a smart quarterback, so we know exactly how we need to play this guy."

Wilfork praised Manning's...

Belichick: 'A lot of confidence' in Gostkowski
By: DJ Bean

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Monday that he still has faith in Stephen Gostkowski, a day after the kicker missed two field goals in the team's 52-28 win over the Bills. Gostkowski, who missed what would have been a game-winning 42-yarder in Week 2 against the Cardinals, missed kicks of 42 and 49 yards Sunday. 

"Steve had some real good plays yesterday," Belichick told reporters at Gillette Stadium. "Again, that's an operation that involves more than one guy. It's not a pitcher taking the ball on the mound, or a golfer teeing the ball up, it's a snap, a hold, a kick, the whole process. So we'll keep working hard at it. I have a lot of confidence in those players -- Danny [Aiken], Zoltan [Mesko], Steve." 

Only Washington's Billy Cundiff has missed more kicks this season than Gostkowski's three, as Cundiff has missed four of his 10 field goal attempts. San Francisco's David Akers and Miami's Dan Carpenter have also...
