MRI reveals Scutaro has oblique strain

After the Red Sox' 9-5 win over the Twins Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park, Sox manager Terry Francona said the MRI taken on Marco Scutaro earlier in the day revealed the shortstop has a strain of his left oblique. Scutaro has been instructed to do nothing but get treatment for the next seven days before the injury is re-evaluated.

 

"He’ll be roughly seven days without swinging a bat, and then we’ll start gearing him up again," Francona said. "What we do on this road trip, we’ve got to determine that. I have to sit and talk to Theo [Epstein] and medical people to see if he goes or stays and what he does.

"These are hard. You’ve got to be careful with these. Every team’s been through them, and we’ve had our share, too. You’ve got to take care of them." 

 

Speaking prior to the win, Scutaro talked about the injury that landed him on the 15-day...

MRI negative, Rondo is game-time decision

Rajon Rondo undwerwent an MRI and a CAT scan Sunday afternoon and both tests came back negative for further damage to his injured left elbow, the Celtics announced. That leaves the point guard as a game-time decision for Game 4 of the C's playoff series with the Heat on Monday with a dislocated elbow.

Rondo suffered the injury in the third quarter of Saturday night's Game 3 when he became entangled with Miami's Dwyane Wade. He returned to the game and played the entire fourth quarter despite rarely using his left arm.

Getting offensive: Sox top Twins 9-5

 

For perhaps the third time in the still-young 2011, the Red Sox offense single-handedly won the Hometowne Team a game as it put together nine runs to tie its season high in a 9-5 win over the Twins in Sunday’s matinee. Five runs ties for the second-most amount that Boston has allowed this season in a win.

Four of the top five hitters in the Red Sox lineup (Jacoby Ellsbury, Adrian Gonzalez, Kevin Youkilis and David Ortiz) had two hits or more with Ellsbury and Gonzalez each racketing up three hits of their own, tying season highs for both. Boston chased Minnesota starter and former Red Sox farmhand Carl Pavanoafter allowing 10 hits and seven earned runs over five innings of work.

It originally looked like Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka was going to be the Mr. Hyde version of himself after he allowed three earned runs on three hits and a walk in the first inning alone. However, the Japanese...

Birthday boy Gonzalez leads Sox to win

Adrian Gonzalez celebrated his 29th birthday in style, notching three hits, including his fifth home run of the season, helping the Red Sox to a 9-5 win over the Twins Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park. It was the Sox' second straight win over Minnesota, and it moved the hosts to 16-18 on the season.

Besides Gonzalez, whose solo homer in the fifth inning was placed over the left-field wall, the other offensive star for the Red Sox was Jacoby Ellsbury. The leadoff hitter claimed three hits, along with a stolen base. Other members of the Red Sox who contributed to the 13-hit attack with multiple-hit performances were David Ortiz (2-for-4) and Kevin Youkilis (2-for-4, 4 runs). Every Red Sox starter came away with a hit except catcher Jason Varitek.

Earning the win was Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka, who finished his six-inning outing by giving up four runs on five hits, striking out four and walking two. Matsuzaka fell into an early hole when he...

Rivers: Wade 'didn't intend to hurt Rondo'

Celtics coach Doc Rivers said on Sunday that he didn't watch the part of the play in Game 3 when Rajon Rondo dislocated his elbow. "I fast-forwarded it when that part came," Rivers said. "I don’t want to see it." 

As to whether he thought Dwyane's Wade actions on the play crossed a line, Rivers said: "I watched that part of it. It was a hard foul. Let’s put it like this: He didn’t intend to hurt Rondo. I don’t honestly believe in 99 percent of cases in our league the player ever intends to hurt anybody. But he did, and it just happens."
