Red Sox issue weather update
By: DJ Bean

The Red Sox have issued a weather update regarding Sunday's game with the Blue Jays:

 

The current weather forecast (provided by the Red Sox private weather service, Telvent DTN) in the vicinity of Fenway Park calls for periods of light to moderate rain showers throughout the day.

 

The Fenway Park gates will open at the regularly scheduled time of 11:35 a.m., and the Red Sox are hopeful that today’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays, which is scheduled to start at 1:35 p.m., will begin on time. However, the Red Sox want to alert our fans to the current forecast and to the possibility of delay.

 

This forecast is of course subject to change as the day progresses. Additional updates will be provided as necessary.

Lowrie makes good: HR beats Jays in 11

Jed Lowrie had his first career walkoff homer - and the first for the Red Sox this season - in the bottom of the 11th as the Red Sox beat the Blue Jays, 5-4, Saturday night at Fenway Park. Lowrie's homer to the Red Sox bullpen led off the 11th against Casey Janssen as Lowrie atoned for a fielding error in the top of the inning.

 

Jonathan Papelbon pitched a perfect 11th to earn the win and level his record at 5-5. David Ortiz was the last Red Sox player to win a game with a walkoff homer when he did so on Aug. 26,2009.

 

Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched eight effective innings, allowing six hits over the eight innings, with three walks and eight strikeouts.

Tek gets good news, Sox still cautious

Jason Varitek is not ready to return quite yet but Red Sox manager Terry Francona said he is definitely headed in the right direction. The team captain, who broke his right foot on June 30 against Tampa Bay, had a conference call on Friday afternoon with manager Terry Francona, his agent Scott Boras, team trainer Mike Reinold and a pair of doctors to discuss how much progress was being made. 

 

“He did a really good job of articulating how he felt," Francona said of Varitek. "What [Dr. Robert Johnson] basically said was that he doesn’t feel that Jason can’t hurt that foot, even when he feels some discomfort, which is good.

 

“Now, Tek’s not ready to play. He’s able to advance forward and continue his progression. He’s just not quite ready to play in a game yet. But the really...
