Lineup: Salty sits for third straight day

With the Red Sox facing a third left-handed starter in as many days (Blue Jays southpaw Aaron Laffey), catcher Kelly Shoppach is in the lineup for the third straight day. Accordingly, Jarrod Saltalamacchia will sit for a third straight contest for the first time this season. Shoppach will be behind the dish for Josh Beckett, who picked up a win by permitting three runs over six innings against the Rays on Sunday.

The lineup remains unchanged from a day ago, when the Red Sox claimed a 3-1 walkoff win over the White Sox. Pedro Ciriaco will once again serve as the designated hitter and bat in the ninth spot in the order.

Update: Penn State denies decision on statue

According to multiple reports, the Penn State Board of Trustees voted Thursday night to remove the school's statue of former football coach Joe Paterno this weekend. Former TV sports personality Bonnie Bernstein tweeted that the school's Board of Trustees voted on a conference call to remove the statue, which has been guarded by students since threats arose about it following the release of the Freeh report that criticized Paterno's handling of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse case.

However, two trustees later insisted that no such decision has been made.

Ryan McCombie told StateCollege.com, "We did no such thing," while fellow board member Anthony Lubrano told The...

Mashup: Jets coach Ryan loses 100 pounds

Jets coach Rex Ryan went public Thursday about his weight loss, saying that he wanted to reach a milestone before commenting. Ryan, who underwent Lap-Band surgery in 2010, said he has lost 106 pounds -- including 50 since the end of last season -- and is down to 242. His waist went from 48 inches to 38.

"I wanted to break that 100-pound barrier before I really said, 'All right, guys, this is what it is,' " said Ryan, who was not paid to have the surgery but has since been hired by the company to talk about his experience.

Ryan, 49, said it was a wakeup call when he checked his weight before the 2009 AFC championship game.

"I thought, 'Let me get on the scale,' I'm thinking I'm going to be 300 or 310, around that range. I'm 348 pounds," he recalled. "I was like, 'I've got to do something.' I couldn't believe it. I swear to you, I turned around to look to see if there was somebody behind me. But it was just me."...

Ross again: Walkoff HR lifts Sox to win

Cody Ross did it again for the Red Sox, belting a three-run, game-winning walkoff homer to the Monster seats in left in the bottom of the ninth to lift the Red Sox to a dramatic 3-1 win over the White Sox Thursday night at Fenway.

For six innings, White Sox rookie Jose Quintana was nearly unhittable. He retired 18 of the first 19 batters, with only Pedro Ciriaco reaching on a triple to left-center with two outs in the third after the first eight Red Sox went down in order. Quintana allowed five hits over eight scoreless innings, striking out two and walking none.

Clay Buchholz was nearly as impressive, allowing his only run in the fourth when Adam Dunn opened with a leadoff walk, Paul Konerko singled Dunn to third and Alex Rios drove Dunn home with a sacrifice fly to make it 1-0. Buchholz held the White Sox to just six hits and one run over eight strong innings, throwing 107 pitches, striking out six and walking just one.
