Former Cambridge Rindge and Latin start basketball player Rumeal Robinson was convicted in federal court in Des Moines, Iowa Wednesday of borrowing more than $700,000 for a fraudulent business deal, having taken the money and spending it on a condominium, cars, and furniture. A jury found Robinson -- who helped lead the University Michigan to a national championship in 1989 -- guilty of 11 counts, including wire fraud, bank bribery and conspiracy to commit bank fraud and making false statement to a financial institution.

Payback: Sox slug 5 homers, rout Rays

Marco Scutaro homered twice and Josh Reddick had a career-high three hits as the Red Sox overcame an early 4-0 hole to beat the Rays, 11-5, at Fenway Park.

 

Starter Tim Wakefield [4-10] allowed six hits and five runs - four earned - over five innings to earn his first win since July 2. He snapped a personal three-game losing streak and, at 44 years, 37 days, passed Dennis Eckersley as the oldest pitcher in team history to record a win.

 

The Red Sox tagged Rays starter Matt Garza [14-8] for four of their five homers on the night. Adrian Beltre, David Ortiz and Victor Martinez also went deep for the Red Sox, who finished their homestand against the White Sox and Rays with a 2-4 record. They have Thursday off before heading to Oakland and Seattle on a six-game road trip, beginning Friday night in Oakland.
