Vlad karma: O's deal Sox brutal loss

Vladimir Guerrero's one-out, two-run single to center broke a 4-4 tie in the eighth and led the Orioles to a stunning 6-4 win over the Red Sox Wednesday night in the Fenway regular-season home finale. The Red Sox had built a 4-1 lead thanks to a single, double and triple from Carl Crawford only to have the Orioles come back with two in the seventh and two in the eighth against starter and loser Josh Beckett. 

The Red Sox, who fell to 5-16 in the month of September, lost 3-of-4 to the Orioles and finished their final homestand of the year with a dismal 3-7 mark. The five wins in 21 games is the lowest September winning percentage for Boston since it 4-18 (.182) in 1926.

Mark Reynolds was a thorn in the side of Beckett as he homered in the second to put the Orioles up, 1-0 and drilled another - his 36th - over the Green Monster with a runner aboard in the seventh to tie the game, 4-4. At 97 pitches, Beckett was brought out to start the eighth...

Buchholz 'spring training sore' day after

A day after throwing a 32-pitch simulated game, Clay Buchholz said he was "sore from the first bullpen in spring training kind of sore," but was ready to executed another throwing session to Red Sox hitters either Thursday or Friday.

"I'm sore, obviously. I haven't thrown to a hitter at that effort level in 2 1/2 months," Buchholz told WEEI.com prior to the Red Sox' series finale against the Orioles Wednesday. "Sore today, but not back-specific, but last and things when I pitch. We'll see how it feels then and go from there. I'm not going to try and rush and do anything that would risk injury."

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said on WEEI's 'The Big Show' that the best-case scenario would allow Buchholz to pitch in a game either Sunday in New York or Monday's tilt in Baltimore. 

Buchholz warned, however, that he has some obstacles to overcome before making an appearance in real game.

Francona: Sunday starter 'up in the air'

Making his weekly appearance on the Big Show, Terry Francona told Glenn Ordway and Michael Holley that he wasn't sure who will start for the Red Sox vs. the Yankees in the series finale at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. Francona had indicated earlier in the week that Eric Bedard might start in place of John Lackey, but on Wednesday Francona indicated that Bedard's 76-pitch performance on Tuesday (his first start since September 3) will take the left-hander out of the conversation for Sunday.

"That's still up in the air," Francona said. "Eric -- a 50-pitch third inning is not an easy inning for him, especially when you are on about a 75-80 pitch limit anyway. So it's not going to be Eric. I think Eric is probably slated to pitch Tuesday. Some of this may depend on how we get through things the next couple of days. You brought up Aceves' name, that's probably a possibility although it's probably a long shot. It could be Lack, we're going to have...

Dustin Pedroia will bat fifth in the lineup for the first time in his career Wednesday as the struggling Red Sox look to Josh Beckett (13-5, 2.50) as they hope to knock off Tommy Hunter (3-3, 5.31) and the Orioles and end a 10-game homestand on a high note.
