Going Gonzo: A-Gon 4-4, Wake beats Cubs

Adrian Gonzalez went 4-for-4 and Tim Wakefield allowed just four hits and one run over 6 2/3 innings as the Red Sox beat the Cubs, 5-1, Sunday night at Fenway Park. Gonzalez raised his average 14 points to .342 with the performance while Jarrod Saltalamacchia belted his second homer in three games and his third of the season. 

While 1918 nostaglia was the theme all weekend long at Fenway Park, Wakefield did his part by turning back the clock and throwing a masterpiece. Wakefield threw just 50 pitches in his first five innings, allowing only an Alfonso Soriano single to center. In winning his first game of 2011, the 44-year-old knuckleballer struck out three and didn't walk a batter, lowering his ERA from 5.40 to 4.50. Wakefield was pulled by Terry Francona after allowing a two-out, RBI double to Jeff Baker in the seventh, his 75th and final pitch of the night. Daniel Bard came on to fan Soriano as the game's potential tying run with a 98 mph...

Pats LB Mayo No. 62 in NFL's Top 100

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo was slotted at No. 62 Sunday night in the NFL Network's list of Top 100 players, a list put together through a players-only vote. Mayo was presented by New England coach Bill Belichick, who praised Mayo as a “football guy.”

“He handles the whole front, the defensive line, the linebackers, stunts, adjustments — and in a lot of the cases, he controls the entire defense,” Belichick said. “Players elected him captain his second year. I think that speaks to his leadership and the respect that he has on this team.”

Belichick was asked if one particular play stood out when it came to Mayo, the 2008 Associated Press Defensive Rookie of the Year who has led the Patriots in tackles the last three seasons.

“When he leads the league in tackles like he did last year, it’s hard to single out one,” Belichick said. “But I think that some...

Man arrested in beating of Giants fan

Los Angeles police conducted a raid Sunday morning and arrested a 31-year-old man believed to be one of the attackers who beat Giants fan Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium on March 31.

According to The Los Angeles Times, police tailed the suspect throughout the weekend and raided his East Hollywood apartment at 7 am. Sunday.

Stow was transferred from Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center to San Francisco General Hospital & Trauma Center last week...

Pena: Sox show 'genuine' concern for Byrd

One day after watching his teammate take a fastball from Red Sox righthander Alfredo Aceves under the left eye, Carlos Pena said his former team couldn't have been more genuine is showing concern for the welfare of Marlon Byrd. 

"Kevin Youkilis, Jed Lowrie, Dustin Pedroia, Big Papi, they all took time to talk to me at first base and ask about him. They were genuinely concerned. We're competitors on the field but in the end, we're all in this game together."

Byrd was sent immediately to Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary during the game and spent Saturday night there. Pena went to visit him after the game Saturday night and said that Byrd's vision in his left eye was blurred but that Byrd could recognize Pena. He was diagnosed with multiple facial fractures and placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Cubs, prior to their interleague series finale Sunday night at Fenway Park.
