Mashup: Youkilis says ankle injury is 'mild'

Kevin Youkilis continues to produce in Chicago, notching an RBI in Wednesday's 8-2 victory over the Twins, but he departed the game in the fourth inning with a sprained left ankle. The 33-year-old Youkilis struggled with injuries in Boston, missing a month earlier this season with a back problem, but the White Sox insist he only left the game as a precaution.

"He's fine," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "He probably could've continued to play. But [trainer] Herm [Schneider] looked at it and wanted to take him out. We'll look at it again [Wednesday night] and see how it's going."

Said Youkilis, who rolled his foot over the first base bag on his RBI single: "I'll be good; it's just mild. I wasn't moving. It just locked up on me. I had to go get some work on it. It'll be fine by Friday. I just wasn't moving too well left and right. You can't help the team when you're out at third base if you can't really move."...

Wild pitch does in Beckett, Red Sox

The Red Sox dropped a 5-3 decision to the Rangers Wednesday night in the teams' series finale in Arlington, Texas.

The pivotal play for the Rangers came in the seventh inning when Elvis Andrus scored with two outs on a Josh Beckett wild pitch. The pitch (a change-up) came after Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine visited the mound, choosing to leave the starter in after throwing 108 pitches.

Beckett would finish his 114-pitch outing allowing four runs over seven innings, giving up nine hits while striking out three and walking two.

The only other inning Beckett allowed Texas to score was the Rangers' three-run fourth inning, in which he gave up five hits.

Prior to the seventh, the Red Sox had tied the game in the sixth inning on Dustin Pedroia's solo home run. It was the Sox' second homer of the game, with Will Middlebrooks having hit his 12th of the season with two outs in the fourth inning.

The Red Sox could only manage five hits...

Lineup: Crawford back in seventh spot

The Red Sox (49-49) look to win their second straight in the finale of a three-game series with the Rangers (57-39) in Arlington on Wednesday. Carl Crawford will hit in the seventh spot in the lineup for the second consecutive game as the Sox will face left-hander Derek Holland (6-5, 4.84). The Sox lineup is the same as it was in Tuesday's win.

Josh Beckett (5-8, 4.53) starts for the Sox. He has struggled recently, positing a 6.88 ERA in three July starts. Beckett has made one start vs. the Rangers this season, allowing three runs in seven innings in a 6-3 Texas win at Fenway Park on April 18.

The Patriots released running back Joseph Addai on Wednesday, a day before the team officially begins training camp. 

The 29-year-old Addai was signed on May 10 after playing six seasons with the Colts. He has been hampered by injuries in recent seasons, playing just a total of 12 games in 2010 and 2011.

Bradley: No time frame for Celtics return

After playing through severe pain at the end of the regular season and into the NBA playoffs, 21-year-old Celtics shooting guard Avery Bradley underwent surgery on both shoulders and remains uncertain if he will be ready for opening night against the Heat on Oct. 30, telling Comcast, "they don't really give me time frames."

"We know there's a possibility that Avery won't be able to play the first month of the season," Celtics president Danny Ainge told Comcast's A. Sherrod Blakely. "So we have to be prepared for that. You never know how these things play out. Will it be a month? Or two months? I don't think it'll be much longer than that, or he could be back sooner. You try to build a roster where you can get by with any injury, that can sustain you through a short period of time."

Ainge has done just that, even despite losing Ray Allen to free agency. The C's signed former Mavericks combo guard Jason Terry and traded...
