ND ruins the night for Rettig, BC

CHESTNUT HILL -- True freshman quarterback Chase Rettig made his debut on Saturday night, only to have it cut short near the end of the first half with an ankle injury. Prior to the injury, the Eagles had shown signs of life but an early Notre Dame lead and a dismal second half led to a 31-13 defeat at the hands of the Fighting Irish.

 

The Eagles looked stunned out of the gate after the Fighting Irish, led by quarterback Dayne Crist, jumped to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter. Notre Dame returned the kickoff to midfield on the opening kickoff and four plays later Crist ran the ball for a 7-yard touchdown. The Eagles were unable to respond in their first three drives after Rettig was unable to complete a pass on his first four attempts. Notre Dame proceeded to score on two of their next three possessions to bring the score to 21-0 with just over two minutes left in the first quarter. 

 

BC scored when Rettig...

Red Sox salvage split after 8 hours of work

Eric Patterson singled home Bill Hall with the game-winning run with one out in the bottom of the 10th as the Red Sox beat the Yankees, 7-6, at Fenway Park and salvaged a doubleheader split after over eight hours of baseball was played. 

 

Robert Manuel earned his first major league win by throwing two innings of scoreless relief while the Red Sox tagged Ivan Nova with the loss. The two teams looked weary in the nightcap as they were forced to play a doubleheader after Friday night's game was rained out. The two teams combined to commit six errors in the second game, with the Yankees committing four miscues. 

 

In his final appearance of 2010, Daisuke Matsuzaka showed the inconsistencies that have plagued his last two seasons in Boston, allowing only three hits and four runs - two earned - over five innings. But the Red Sox right-hander hit two batters and threw a wild pitch and finished the season with a 9-6...

Ungrateful: Yanks spoil 'Thanks Mike' opener

Brett Gardner scored the winning run from second in the top of the 10th when Bill Hall overran Derek Jeter's infield single at second base as the Yankees prevailed, 6-5, in 10 innings at Fenway Park in the first game of a day-night doubleheader. Robinson Cano homered and doubled twice, driving in two, and Curtis Granderson tripled in a run and scored twice as the Yankees built a 5-3 lead only to see the Red Sox tie it with single runs in the seventh and eighth.

 

After being honored in a pregame ceremony at third base, Mike Lowell received a standing ovation after being lifted for pinch-runner Lars Anderson in the fifth inning. Lowell doubled home two runs off Andy Pettitte in the first inning, staking the Red Sox to a 2-0 lead. Lowell finished 2-for-2 with a walk and a run scored. 

 

The Lowell festivities overshadowed the final appearance this season by Tim Wakefield, who also received a standing ovation after...

Mike Lowell honored by Red Sox

Prior to the Red Sox' Saturday afternoon game with the Yankees, the team honored Mike Lowell -- who finished Game 1 with a double, walk, and single off the left field wall before being pinch-run for -- with a pre-game ceremony. Here are some of the highlights:

 

- Seated in a row of chairs near third base were: Principal owner John Henry, team president Larry Lucchino, manager Terry Francona, Lowell’s father, Carl, and his wife, Bertha, and two young children, Anthony and Alexis. Making surprise appearances were former teammates Mike Redmond and Alex Cora, with current teammate Josh Beckett also joining the group.

 

- Once all the particulars were introduced, the team played a highlight reel on the Fenway Park video board.

 

- The gifts given to Lowell were: Stone crabs (from the Florida Marlins), a watch, third base (which Beckett went over, plucked from the infield, and gave to Lowell), and a $100,...
