Sox rally falls short in loss to Indians

For the fourth straight game, the Red Sox came storming back with a late-innings rally that had their sights set on a third straight walkoff victory. Down 6-1 to the Indians, the team pushed across one run in the seventh and added on three more on Adrian Beltre's second homer of the game, a blast that brought the Sox back to a 6-5 deficit.

 

But unlike the past two games, the Sox could not take the final step in their comeback. They fell short in the bottom of the ninth, losing 6-5 in a game marred by a horrific injury suffered by Indians catcher Carlos Santana. With the loss, the Sox fell 6 1/2 games behind the Rays in the wild card standings.

 

Sox starter John Lackey appeared ready to continue his dominating second-half run. The big right-hander cruised into the fourth inning, allowing just...

Indians catcher Santana exits after collision

Promising Indians catcher Carlos Santana endured a horrific injury in the bottom of the seventh inning, when Red Sox outfielder Ryan Kalish slid into the catcher's leg on a play at the plate. Santana, who held the ball to record the out, immediately started writhing in pain after the collision. His left knee appeared to buckle backwards on the play. Santana's leg was immobilized, and he was removed from the field on a stretcher.

 

The 24-year-old Santana entered the year ranked the 10th best prospect in the game by Baseball America. After his June callup, he began to fulfill those lauds, hitting .260 with an .868 OPS and six homers in 46 games.

 

The play unfolded with one out in the bottom of the seventh. Kalish was on second following a double. Pinch-hitter Daniel Nava lined a sharp single to right field, and Kalish was waved home by third base coach Tim Bogar. Right fielder Shin-Soo Choo delivered a perfect throw to the...

Welker held out of Gillette Stadium practice

FOXBORO -- Wes Welker was taken off the PUP list on Sunday and returned to practice this weekend for the Patriots but the team held him out of Monday night's practice event for season ticket holders and Foxboro residents at Gillette Stadium. Welker, who also practiced in full pads on Monday morning, was one of 14 players not in attendance for the workout. 

 

It was the team's first formal practice inside the stadium since a brand new Field Turf was installed, designed to be softer and more like natural grass than its predecessor. Fans attending also got a glimpse of the brand new high definition video board in the South end zone, which ran for the entire 90 minutes of the practice. 

 

Some of the highlights of the practice included Tom Brady connecting with Randy Moss on a pair of touchdown passes in 11-on-11 two-minute drills. Brady also found Rob Gronkowski, who made a nice TD catch while Steve Gostkowski just...

Youkilis leaves game with jammed thumb

Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis left Monday's game against the Indians after the second inning due to a jammed right thumb. Youkilis grimaced in pain while flexing his right hand following his first-inning at-bat against Indians starter Fausto Carmona, against whom he lined out to shortstop.

 

With Youkilis out, the Red Sox had catcher Victor Martinez slide over to play first base. Kevin Cash entered the game as the Sox catcher. Youkilis is hitting .307 with a .975 OPS, 19 homers and 62 RBI.

Ex: Sypher wanted to bring Pitino down

An ex-husband of Karen Cunagin Sypher, the woman accused of attempted extortion of Rick Pitino, told a jury that she refused a plea deal because she wanted revenge on the University of Louisville basketball coach. Randy Wise testified Monday that a couple of months after Sypher was charged, she told him, "I'm going down. I'm going to take Pitino with me."

 

Sypher has pleaded not guilty to extortion, retaliating against a witness and lying to the FBI, after she allegedly demanded money from Pitino in order to keep their secual liaison quiet.
