Sox prospects suspended for brawl

A trio of Red Sox prospects -- Michael Almanzar, Jeremy Hazelbaker and Vladimir Frias -- were suspended from the Greenville Drive for one game each following a bench-clearing brawl between the Drive and the Lakewood BlueClaws. The news was first reported by the Asbury Park Press and Richard Breen of examiner.com.

 

The brawl occurred in the Drive's Game 2 loss to the BlueClaws in the South Atlantic League's championship series. Derrik Gibson collided with Lakewood's catcher, Sebastian Valle, at the plate and then exchanged words with pitcher Jorge Rodriguez. That prompted both benches to empty, with Almanzar coming in and, after initially appearing to try to separate...

Ortiz leaves game with stiff neck

Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz was replaced by pinch-hitter Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the top of the ninth inning of his team's 5-1 win over the Mariners due to stiffness in his neck. The slugger went 1-for-4 with a double, a run scored and two strikeouts, one night after hitting his 30th homer of the season.

 

“He had a stiff neck. He slept on it funny," manager Terry Francona told reporters. "It was just getting stiffer as the day went. He was having a hard time just getting like open. So we let [Saltalamacchia] have an at-bat."

Caron nets hat trick; 2 assists for Seguin
By: DJ Bean

BOSTON -- Jordan Caron scored an empty netter in the game's final minute to give him a hat trick in the Bruins' 5-2 win over Islanders rookies at TD Garden on Wednesday night. Second overall pick Tyler Seguin picked up a pair of assists in the game, his first in a Bruins uniform. 

 

2008 first-round pick Joe Colborne left the game in the third period after an ugly play against the boards. A woozy looking Colborne skated off the ice slowly, leaving a trail of blood. Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said after the game that Colborne appeared to have broken his nose and chipped a tooth after getting a teammate's stick to the face. 

 

Colborne is not expected to play in Thursday's game, the second of two between the two teams. In net, Adam Courchaine saved 31 of the 33 shots he faced. The attendance night was 11,571.

Sox sweep Seattle in Buchholz bounceback

Clay Buchholz shook off his worst performance of the 2010 season, allowing just one run in seven innings to lead the Red Sox past the Mariners, 5-1. One outing after he had allowed five runs and nine baserunners in just one inning, Buchholz overcame a struggle out of the gate (a solo homer in the first) to dominate the Mariners for most of the afternoon. He ended up allowing just four hits and striking out six in his outing, improving to 16-7 with a 2.48 ERA.

 

Adrian Beltre unloaded on a hanger from Seattle starter David Pauley, crushing a solo homer (his 28th of the year) while on his left knee. The Sox also received a two-run double from Victor Martinez and an RBI triple by Ryan Kalish, the first three-bagger of his career.

 

The victory allowed the Sox to sweep Seattle, heading back from the West Coast roadtrip with 82 wins this year. The Sox thus have clinched their 13th straight winning season.

Bogaerts, Pierzynski, and Bradley Jr. are the most obvious culprits. Also, Buster surmises that the Red Sox front office has to be a little uneasy with the fact that their best offensive player, David Ortiz, is in this LATE 30's.
