Mashup: Struggling Mets bench Bay

Former Red Sox left fielder Jason Bay continues to struggle in New York, and the Mets sat down their prized free agent Thursday night as they were shut out by the Dodgers for their seventh loss in the eighth game of their disastrous 11-game road trip. Bay is batting .169 in July and has six home runs on the season. Mets manager Jerry Manuel said he hoped getting away from New York for a couple of weeks would help Bay. "I am somewhat surprised [by Bay],” said Manuel, whose team has not scored in 17 innings. “I really thought this was kind of a good opportunity to get away from the pressures, the anxiety he has when he’s in New York. I thought he would get out here on the West Coast and take off.” Read more about this story at Friday's Morning Mashup, where you also can check out videos, trivia and more.

Sox salvage 13-inning win in Seattle

On a night when the Red Sox flirted with both uplifting and devastating history, the team managed to salvage an 8-6 win in 13 innings over the Mariners. A two-run double by Eric Patterson in the top of the 13th inning broke a tie on a night that witnessed plenty of drama.

 

Red Sox starter John Lackey carried a no-hitter into the bottom of the eighth inning before Seattle (and ex-Red Sox) catcher Josh Bard dumped a clean single into right field with two outs in the eighth. Still, Lackey delivered the most dominant outing of his inaugural season with Boston, and the contest seemed well in hand for the Red Sox when they took a five-run lead into the ninth inning.

 

But a combination of poor relief work and bad defense led to a monumental Seattle rally. Manny Delcarmen retired none of the four batters he faced, permitting a two-run homer to Franklin Gutierrez, issuing a walk and then watching as Marco Scutaro booted a...

Ex-Sox Bard ends Lackey no-hit bid in 8th

Mariners catcher Josh Bard dropped a single to right field with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning, ending the no-hit bid by Red Sox starter John Lackey. Lackey had retired 16 straight Mariners before the ex-Sox catcher delivered Seattle's first hit of the contest on the big right-hander's 111th pitch of the night.

 

Lackey did allow a run in the second inning, when he walked leadoff man Milton Bradley, who advanced to second on a steal, reached third on a groundout and then, with two outs, scored on a Kevin Cash passed ball. He had permitted two other baserunners prior to Bard's hit: one on a fielding error by second baseman Bill Hall, and the other on a hit batter.

 

Through eight innings, the Sox own a 6-1 lead on the strength of homers by Bill Hall, J.D. Drew and Marco Scutaro.

Lowell goes 1-for-5 for PawSox

PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- Mike Lowell made his first rehab start for Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday night and went 1-for-5 as the veteran infielder attempts to come back from yet another bout with a strained right hip. Scouts were on hand at McCoy stadium from the Blue Jays, Orioles, Tigers and Royals. 

 

With one out and a runner on third in the first inning, Lowell popped out weakly to second base on a 1-1 pitch. He struck out on four pitches in the third and flew out several feet from the warning track in left leading off the sixth. In his final at-bat in the eighth, Lowell grounded out to third after Daniel Nava reached second base on a throwing error to open the inning.

 

With none out and Nava at first in the bottom of the 10th, Lowell hit a bloop single to shallow center to move Daniel Nava to third before Nava scored the game-winning run on a single by Lars Anderson down the right field line.  Lowell went on the...

Ellsbury nearing rehab games

Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury hit on the field on Wednesday as part of a progression in which he has "amped up his hitting quite a bit," manager Terry Francona told reporters in Seattle, and he could be nearing the start of another minor league rehab assignment. Francona said that it is possible that Ellsbury, who is rehabbing at the Sox' spring training complex in Fort Myers, could begin a rehab assignment in the next four or five days, likely with the Rookie Level Gulf Coast League Red Sox.

Also, Buster surmises that the Red Sox front office has to be a little uneasy with the fact that their best offensive player, David Ortiz, is in this LATE 30's.
