Beckett, Sox dominate Rays

In a game whose outcome was overshadowed in many respects by the right shoulder injury suffered by Jacoby Ellsbury, the Red Sox nonetheless enjoyed their most impressive contest of the 2012 season. Behind eight innings that were equally efficient and effective by starter Josh Beckett and a resurgent offense that produced eight runs, the Sox crushed the Rays, 12-2, in their Fenway Park home opener.

The Red Sox made Rays starter David Price work. The left-hander struggled to find the strike zone and the Sox didn't help him, in the process driving up his pitch count to 83 pitches in just three innings. The team strung together three runs on four hits and three walks against Price, with a three-run third inning that featured an Adrian Gonzalez RBI single to left, a Kevin Youkilis sac fly and a run-scoring, check-swing single by David Ortiz that rolled to third base. The team plated an insurance run the following inning when Kelly Shoppach doubled off of...

Ellsbury leaves with shoulder injury

Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury left Friday's game after the bottom of the fourth inning due to an injury incurred while trying to break up a double play.

Ellsbury, on first after an RBI single that put the Sox up, 4-1, with one out, was running on a full-count pitch to Dustin Pedroia. Shortstop Reid Brignac, moving to cover second with the pitch, was in perfect position to field a smash up the middle by Pedroia. Ellsbury arrived at second just after Brignac, and slid hard into the bag and the shortstop, a maneuver that did not prevent Brignac from completing the double play. After the encounter at second, Ellsbury appeared to be reaching for his right shoulder. After being examined by a Red Sox trainer, he left the field holding his arm pinned to his chest.

Ellsbury, the runner-up in AL MVP voting in 2011, was amidst his second multi-hit game of the year, having gone 2-for-3 with a double, a run and an RBI. He was replaced in the Sox lineup...

Maddon: 'Don't have [show] in Tampa Bay'

 

Speaking prior to his team's game against the Red Sox Friday afternoon at Fenway Park, Rays manager Joe Maddon laughed when asked if he could imagine having a weekly radio show in another city other than the one his team plays in. "I don't even have one in our own city," he said. "I don't have one in Tampa Bay."

The question was asked due to the controversy surrounding Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine's weekly appearance on a New York sports radio station. 

Maddon said if he was to start a radio show, it would most likely be in his hometown of Hazleton, Penn. "I could have one on WAZL, the mighty 1490," he said. "That's the place I would do it."

Maddon also addressed the notion that former Rays' catcher Kelly Shoppach might give the Red Sox advantage, carrying knowledge of his old team. It was one of the reasons Valentine said Shoppach got the nod in the starting lineup Friday.
