Sox, Lester dominate Baltimore again

BALTIMORE -- For the second straight night, the Red Sox took advantage of an Orioles team that is falling apart, riding the roll of Jon Lester to an 8-2 victory.

 

The final score was not indicative of the dynamic of the game. Lester and Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie threw dueling zeros on the board through six scoreless innings, before Kevin Youkilis put the Sox on the board with a solo homer (his 12th of the year, and second in as many days) in the top of the seventh. The Sox then added on another run in the eighth before blowing the game open against the Orioles bullpen in the ninth. The six-run eruption featured two-run doubles from Youkilis, Bill Hall and Darnell McDonald.

 

Lester improved to 11-0 in his career against the Orioles. He tossed 6.1 shutout innings, allowing just four hits and striking out four. In his last nine starts, he is now 7-0 with a 1.29 ERA. Lester left with the bases loaded, one out and the...

Reports: Thibodeau to coach Bulls

EL SEGUNDO — Both the Chicago Tribune and Sun Times are reporting that Celtics assistant Tom Thibodeau has agreed to a three-year deal to coach the Chicago Bulls next season.

 

Doc Rivers wouldn’t confirm the reports at practice Saturday.

 

“I hope it’s true,” Rivers said. “But we’re not going to comment on it, I can tell you that. We’re focused on the NBA finals. It’s the Lakers and the Celtics and that’s what we’re going to keep the focus on. But on Tom, he deserves the job. I think he’s the best candidate out there. Let’s hope it’s true, but we’re going to leave it at that.”

 

Rivers did say that Thibodeau’s future won’t have an impact on whether he returns next season to the Celtics.

 

“No, Thibs and I are very close, but that won’t have an impact,” Rivers...

Hermida hopes to be available Sunday

BALTIMORE -- Red Sox outfielder Jeremy Hermida said that he found the results of a CT-scan on his chest on Saturday afternoon to be reassuring following his collision with teammate Adrian Beltre on Friday night. Initially, Hermida felt more discomfort in his left forearm than his chest, but after leaving the park on Friday, the pain in the chest worsened while the forearm improved.

 

Given that Jacoby Ellsbury suffered a hairline fracture of four ribs in an April collision with Beltre, Hermida wanted to make sure that he was not dealing with anything beyond soreness. The results of the scan were negative, suggesting that Hermida is dealing simply with a deep bruise in his chest, rather than a more significant issue.

 

"Just knowing it was a similar situation [to Ellsbury], similar thing, similar spot, you just want to rule out anything like that, especially when it comes to bones and those kinds of things. We just...
