Buchholz continues hot streak, beats O's

BALTIMORE -- The Red Sox avoided a Camden Yards sweep, beating the Orioles, 6-3, in the teams' series finale Thursday night.

Key the Red Sox' win were an offense that pounded out 13 hits -- led by Cody Ross' three-hit night -- and another stellar pitching performance from starter Clay Buchholz. The righty went eight innings, giving up three runs on eight hits, striking out seven and walking three.

The outing brought Buchholz' ERA down to 1.53 over his last six starts, and 4.19 for the season. 

While Baltimore was able to jump out to a 3-1 lead after two innings, thanks in part to Mark Reynolds' solo home run in the second, the Red Sox bounced back to two runs in the fifth and three in the sixth. Besides Ross, others helping pace the Red Sox' attack were the team's No. 2, 3 and 4 hitters, Carl Crawford, Dustin Pedroia and Adrian Gonzalez, who all had two hits apiece.

Also coming away with a multiple-hit game for the Red Sox -- who...

Ridley, Wilson, Hernandez nicked up

FOXBORO -- Aaron Hernandez, Stevan Ridley and rookie Tavon Wilson all suffered what appeared to be leg injuries during Thursday's fourth straight day in full pads practice. 

Hernandez twice came up gimpy following pass routes, including a slant toward the end zone during 7-on-7 drills. Hernandez flexed his knee several times and stayed in practice. 

Ridley came out later during 11-on-11 drills after he ran the ball to the right side of the offensive line. He stayed on the field and got treatment on his right leg from trainer Jim Whalen on the sideline, several times balancing on his right leg in a strength test. Ridley, who stayed in uniform, did not return to practice.

Rookie safety Tavon Wilson injured his lower left leg after going up with fellow safety Steve Gregory in double coverage on a pass intended for Hernandez, who made a leaping grab before falling to the turf. Wilson, who was in the area of Hernandez, limped off to the...

Edelman, Koutouvides booted from practice

FOXBORO -- Julian Edelman and Niko Koutouvides were kicked out of practice about an hour early on Thursday when the two engaged in a shoving and shouting match after a punt return. 

Edelman ran up and fielded a punt and did a jump-cut into a gap and ran into Koutouvides. The two exchanged words and shoved each other. Coach Bill Belichick stepped in and immediately tossed both from practice. 

Two weeks ago, Belichick stopped practice after a pair of fights during practice in which players dog-piled on one another. That was just days after a in-stadium fight during a public practice. 

"Coach just wants to make sure we're on the same page," linebacker Rob Ninkovich said of the discipline. "Just don't fight."
