For the Birds: Matsuzaka, Sox lose

This was not the sort of team history with which the Red Sox envisioned Daisuke Matsuzaka flirting when they signed him to such great fanfare after the 2006 season.

 

Matsuzaka allowed four runs in 6 1/3 innings, marking the seventh straight outing in which he's given up at least four earned runs, as the Sox dropped the series opener against the Orioles by a 4-2 count. The right-handed issued five walks in addition to six hits over 6 1/3 innings. Though he left the contest with the game tied, 2-2, reliever Daniel Bard allowed both runners he inherited from Matsuzaka to score, thus giving Matsuzaka the longest streak of starts allowing four or more earned runs by a Red Sox pitcher since 1942-43.

 

The Red Sox mustered little offense against Orioles starter Brian Matusz and the Baltimore bullpen. The Sox pushed across just one first-inning run against Matusz, who then worked through the rest of his five-inning outing without...

Broncos receiver found dead

Broncos wide receiver Kenny McKinley has been found dead, apparently the result of a suicide, according to FOX 31 in Denver. The 23-year-old McKinley, a fifth-round pick out of South Carolina in 2009, caught 207 passes and generated over 2,700 yards as a collegian. He appeared in eight games as a rookie last season before an injury landed him on IR. McKinley is the third Broncos player to die a sudden death in the past four years: In Jan. 2007, cornerback Darrent Williams was killed in drive-by shooting, and in Feb. 2007, running back Damien Nash, 24, collapsed and died during a charity basketball game.

Belichick: Meriweather's not in doghouse

Patriots coach Bill Belichick, during his weekly interview on The Big Show, downplayed the demotion of safety Brandon Meriweather from the starting lineup. (Meriweather told the Dale & Holley show earlier today that it was his fault that he's not starting and that he, "hasn't been myself.")

 

"Brandon played yeterday," Belichick said. "So did James [Sanders]. So did Patrick [Chung]. They all played. They all contributed and I think all three will continue to do that in the future. I don't think whoever's out there for the first play of the game is the most significant thing." Asked if Meriweather was in the doghouse, Belichick responded, "No, I wouldn't say that."

 

After a strong start, the Pats offense struggled against the Jets in a 28-14 loss. The coach said part of that...

BB: Welker hit not 'what league is looking for'

FOXBORO -- Bill Belichick reacted Monday to the first-half head shot on Wes Welker by Jets safety Eric Smith that forced the Patriots receiver from the game and wound up in him being sent to the sideline to have his head examined by the team's medical staff. 

 

"I think we both kind of saw the same thing," Belichick said of his heated discussion with the side judge moments after the play. "They threw a flag on it. I don't think that's really what the league is looking for, are those kind of plays. I can't imagine they are. See what they want to do about it."

 

"I just asked them about the call and what they saw," added Belichick, who stopped just short of asking the league for an additional penalty to be levied against Smith. 

 

"It's their call, not mine," Belichick said.

Belichick: Awaiting test results on Faulk

FOXBORO -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick said the team is awaiting test results on the apparent knee injury to veteran running back Kevin Faulk. 

 

"They're doing some tests on Kevin and we'll know more when they tell us," Belichick said during his Monday afternoon briefing with reporters. 

 

Faulk eventually walked off under his own power after being knocked out of bounds by Jets cornerback Drew Coleman in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game. Faulk remained on the ground for an extended period before heading to the bench and did not return to the game.
