Ex-Sox Bard ends Lackey no-hit bid in 8th

Mariners catcher Josh Bard dropped a single to right field with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning, ending the no-hit bid by Red Sox starter John Lackey. Lackey had retired 16 straight Mariners before the ex-Sox catcher delivered Seattle's first hit of the contest on the big right-hander's 111th pitch of the night.

 

Lackey did allow a run in the second inning, when he walked leadoff man Milton Bradley, who advanced to second on a steal, reached third on a groundout and then, with two outs, scored on a Kevin Cash passed ball. He had permitted two other baserunners prior to Bard's hit: one on a fielding error by second baseman Bill Hall, and the other on a hit batter.

 

Through eight innings, the Sox own a 6-1 lead on the strength of homers by Bill Hall, J.D. Drew and Marco Scutaro.

Lowell goes 1-for-5 for PawSox

PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- Mike Lowell made his first rehab start for Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday night and went 1-for-5 as the veteran infielder attempts to come back from yet another bout with a strained right hip. Scouts were on hand at McCoy stadium from the Blue Jays, Orioles, Tigers and Royals. 

 

With one out and a runner on third in the first inning, Lowell popped out weakly to second base on a 1-1 pitch. He struck out on four pitches in the third and flew out several feet from the warning track in left leading off the sixth. In his final at-bat in the eighth, Lowell grounded out to third after Daniel Nava reached second base on a throwing error to open the inning.

 

With none out and Nava at first in the bottom of the 10th, Lowell hit a bloop single to shallow center to move Daniel Nava to third before Nava scored the game-winning run on a single by Lars Anderson down the right field line.  Lowell went on the...

Ellsbury nearing rehab games

Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury hit on the field on Wednesday as part of a progression in which he has "amped up his hitting quite a bit," manager Terry Francona told reporters in Seattle, and he could be nearing the start of another minor league rehab assignment. Francona said that it is possible that Ellsbury, who is rehabbing at the Sox' spring training complex in Fort Myers, could begin a rehab assignment in the next four or five days, likely with the Rookie Level Gulf Coast League Red Sox.

Wakefield back to bullpen

Manager Terry Francona told reporters that with the returns of Clay Buchholz and Josh Beckett from the disabled list, knuckleballer Tim Wakefield will be sent back to the bullpen. The 43-year-old, who started on Tuesday in Oakland, will return to a relief role that he admittedly dislikes.

 

"I don’t think he wanted to hug me. I guess we do what we think is best for the team, and explain it, and when guys don’t like it, don’t understand it, we try to explain it to them," Francona told reporters. "It’s no different with Wake than with anyone else, with the exception that we’ve known Wake a long time, we know what he’s accomplished. But regardless of who they are, we try to have the same attitude. We try to put the team first and explain to guys why we do things. It’s really no different."

 

Wakefield became a member of the rotation when Beckett went on the...

Robinson: Good to 'start from scratch'

After being traded to the Celtics in February, Nate Robinson is looking forward to returning this fall with a new contract, one that gives him a fresh start in his sixth NBA season. "For me, I think it will be a good start for me to just come in and start from scratch,” he said in a conference call. “I loved my time there in Boston. The fans welcomed me with open arms, the team, coach Doc (Rivers), Danny Ainge, everybody, the whole organization, they were real good to me. I decided they’re a great, winning organization, a lot of history, and I think I fit in well with the guys. So I was like, why not?”  For more on Robinson, visit the Celtics team page.
