Mashup: Pavin clashes with golf reporter

Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin got into a heated confrontation with Golf Channel reporter Jim Gray Wednesday afternoon after denying Gray’s report that he guaranteed Tiger Woods a spot on the U.S. team. Following a press conference at which Pavin called Gray’s report “incorrect,” the two reportedly stood nose-to-nose and Gray called Pavin a liar, saying, “You’re going down.” Responded Pavin: “You’re full of it.”

 

Also in the news, Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez was arrested Wednesday night and charged with assaulting his father-in-law at the team’s family lounge following New York’s latest loss. It was the latest in a string of behavioral issues for K-Rod.

Delgado collects two hits for PawSox

In his second game since signing a minor league deal with the Red Sox over the weekend, Carlos Delgado collected a pair of singles in four at-bats while striking out once in the PawSox' 5-1 loss to Lehigh Valley. He also lined out to second. In his two minor league games, Delgado is now 2-for-7. The 38-year-old is currently trying to position himself for a return to the majors, where he has not played since May 2009 due to a pair of hip surgeries.

Sox close wild card gap with win

TORONTO -- The Red Sox drew within 3 1/2 games of Tampa Bay for the lead in the American League wild card race thanks to a 10-1 win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday night at Rogers Centre. The 10-run, 14-hit attack was the most offense the Sox had mustered since their 14-3 rout of the Jays on July 9 in Toronto.

 

Pacing the Sox' offensive display was Bill Hall, who had his first two-home run game since 2008, giving him 15 for the season. Hall also had an RBI single, giving him three hits, only matched in the Sox lineup by Mike Lowell (3-for-4). Also going deep for the Red Sox were J.D. Drew and Adrian Beltre, both of whom contributed to a five-run fifth inning that drove Toronto starter Shaun Marcum from the game.

 

Not to be outdone was Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz, who managed to allow three runs or less while going at least seven innings for his fourth straight start. This time Buchholz only allowed one first-inning run...

He will then serve as Pawtucket's designated hitter on Sunday before returning to the Red Sox on Tuesday for the first of three games with the Angels to commence a nine-game homestand.
