Falling short: Jays squeeze past Sox

Jose Bautista homered for the eighth time this season off Red Sox pitching and increased his major league-leading total to 49 as the Blue Jays held on for a 4-3 win at Fenway Park on Saturday night. 

 

Adrian Beltre had a pair of doubles and scored twice to lead the Red Sox offense which rallied for the second straight night, only to fall just short. The Red Sox could not overcome the 4-1 hole that starter Josh Beckett fell into, thanks in large part to some shoddy fielding. After allowing Bautista's Monster-clearing blast in the first, Beckett allowed just a single run in the fourth on an infield single by John McDonald and two more in the sixth, highlighted by McDonald scoring from second on a sacrifice bunt from Jose Molina. 

 

Ryan Kalish singled with one out in the ninth, only to be picked off first by Molina. Martinez followed with a triple with two outs before Beltre grounded out to short to end the game....

Tito: 'Logic says' Doubront done for 2010

On the same day Felix Doubront was honored as the 2010 Red Sox minor league pitcher of the year, manager Terry Francona said the 22-year-old with a minor upper pectoral muscle injury likely won't pitch again for the team this season. 

 

"He will be re-evaluated on Monday," Francona announced Saturday. "I think logic kind of says that this kid’s probably not going to pitch again. We’re getting to that point."

 

Doubront, who was checked out by Red Sox medical staff on Friday, hasn't pitched since being sent home from Baltimore after giving up two home runs in a 5-2 loss to the Orioles on Aug. 31.

 

"I do think what we’d like to do is get him ramped up so when we send him off after the season we have a feeling that...

Doubront, a 22-year-old lefty, combined to go 8-3 with a 2.81 ERA and 72 strikeouts in 17 games (16 starts) between Portland and Pawtucket. He has also appeared in 12 games (three starts) with the Red Sox this season in his Major League debut. He held opponents to two earned runs or less in 12 of his 14 minor league starts. He began the season as Portland’s Opening Day starter and went 4-0 with a 2.51 ERA before a May 20 promotion to Pawtucket, where he went 4-3 with a 3.16 ERA. Signed with the Red Sox as an international free agent in 2004.

 

The offensive Co-Players of the Year were first baseman Anthony Rizzo, Single-A Salem/Double-A Portland and catcher Ryan Lavarnway of Class A Salem and Double-A Portland. Rizzo hit .260 with 42 doubles, 25 homers, 100 RBI and 61 walks in 136 games between Salem and Portland. At...
