By: DJ Bean

TORONTO -- Red Sox center fielder Mike Cameron is not in the lineup for the final game before the All-Star break due to a sore wright wrist.

Germany beats Uruguay for third at WC

Sami Khedra headed in the game-winning goal in the 82nd minute to give Germany a 3-2 victory over Uruguay in the World Cup's third-place game Saturday. The two teams had alternated goals with Edinson Cavani and Diego Forlan, who hit the crossbar on a free kick in the game's closing minutes, scoring for Uruguay and Thomas Muller and Marcell Jansen for the Germans. This is the second-straight third-place finish at the World Cup for Germany. The Netherlands and Spain play to decide the ultimate winner of the international tournament Sunday afternoon.

Lackey, Red Sox fall to Blue Jays
By: DJ Bean

TORONTO -- John Lackey was sub-par in the second game of the Red Sox' series with the Blue Jays on Saturday, failing to escape the fifth inning and taking the loss in a 9-5 defeat. Though the game's early innings featured offense that suggested a potential continuation of Friday's 14-run showing, the Red Sox were unable to keep up with the Toronto bullpen. The Sox have now lost their last five games not started by Jon Lester. 

 

Lackey gave up eight hits and walked six batters in 4 2/3 innings. His WHIP raised to 1.35, which is currently fifth-highest on the AL. Alex Gonzalez homered in the fourth and Bautista belted his major league-leading 24th homer in the bottom of the eighth. For the complete recap, see Closing Time

Ellsbury gives timeline for injuries, treatment

TORONTO -- Sitting in the visitors dugout at Rogers Centre prior to the Red Sox' game with the Blue Jays Saturday afternoon, Jacoby Ellsbury went through the timeline of both his rib injuries and the treatment he received while referencing notes written on sheets of paper. Of note was Ellsbury making it clear that his dive in Philadelphia, which had originally been identified as the cause for his latest injury, wasn't the cause for the broken rib that led to his recent rehab in Arizona. Some of the major points of the briefing (which went 10 minutes, 30 second before a question was asked) were:

 

- Ellsbury said that injury suffered in a collision with third baseman Adrian Beltre in Kansas City -- later diagnosed as four broken ribs -- was described to him as a bruise, and when the outfielder asked for an MRI he was told that the team didn't give MRIs for bruises.

 

- Six days after the injury he was prescribed Vicodin,...

Huge crowd for Bruins D-camp finale

WILMINGTON -- A record crowd turned out at Ristuccia Arena for the final day of the Bruins development camp on Saturday.

 

A crowd estimated at over 1,200 filled the entire seating section to see top pick Tyler Seguin, along with other prospects Joe Colborne and Yuri Alexandrov, as they ran through drills and finished with an intrasquad scrimmage. Two extra sections, normally reserved for Bruins staff and media, were opened to accommodate the overflow crowd that stretched out the door of the Wilmington practice facility. 

 

"We had to let them into our little private area," Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said with a proud smile. "It was great. They liked the show that was put on. They see the obvious skill out there and the depth of the guys. It's great."

A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
