VT hands BC first shutout loss since '98

CHESTNUT HILL -- Virginia Tech forced Boston College quarterback Dave Shinskie into two interceptions and a lost fumble in a 19-0 win over the Eagles on hot Saturday afternoon at Alumni Stadium.

 

The loss in the ACC opener for both teams marked the first time in 148 games Boston College had been blanked. Virginia Tech was also the last team to hold the Eagles scoreless in a 17-0 win on Oct. 8, 1998. 

 

BC's defense held the Eagles in the game, forcing the Hokies to settle for four Chris Hazley field goals. Virginia Tech scored the game's only touchdown when Tyrod Taylor led a nine-play, 80-yard scoring drive, capped with a three-yard run around right end by Darren Evans. The drive followed Shinskie's first interception of the day, a pick by Jayron Hosley in the end zone when BC was first and goal at the Hokies 10. 

 

BC back Montel Harris had 111 yards on just 19 carries, passing LV Whitworth...

Report: Celtics waive Lafayette

On the eve of opening training camp the Celtics have waived guard Oliver Lafayette, according to a report on the Herald’s website. Lafayette was a longshot to make the roster with Rajon Rondo, Nate Robinson and possibly rookie Avery Bradley slotted ahead of him.

 

Lafayette played well during the Orlando summer league and looks like a player who can stick on an NBA roster in the right circumstances. He also performed well with Fort Wayne in the D-League, averaging over 17 points and six assists per game.

Francona: Lowell 'very fortunate'
By: DJ Bean

NEW YORK -- A day after Mike Lowell took a bouncing ground ball off the head, Red Sox manager Terry Francona said the infielder is not showing symptoms of a concussion and is "clear-eyed." Francona did say that Lowell's jaw is very sore and that the team will conduct tests on him Saturday. 

 

Francona said that Lowell is "very fortunate" to not have suffered a concussion on the play given that "it didn't look good at the time." As such, Francona added that the team will "make sure he checks out before he goes out onto the field."

 

Lowell is currently playing out the last year of both his contract and his career. Set to retire at season's end, the Red Sox will honor him in a pregame ceremony on Oct. 2. For more on the Red Sox, visit their team page at weei.com/redsox

Francona: Lopez insurance for Scutaro

NEW YORK -- Newly acquired Red Sox infielder Felipe Lopez has joined the team in New York and is wearing No. 32. The 30-year-old signed a deal with the Red Sox on Friday that will pay him the remainder of the money left on the one-year, $1 million contract he signed with the Cardinals prior to this season. Lopez had forfeited the remainder of his salary when he rejected the Padres' claim of him from release waivers.

 

Manager Terry Francona said on Saturday that the signing "happened kind of quick" and that the team will "get a look at him." Francona noted that he will serve as insurance for starting shortstop Marco Scutaro.

 

Lopez, placed on release waivers by the Cardinals this week, rejected a claim by the Padres prior to agreeing with the Sox. In 109 games this season, he has hit .231/.310/.340/.651. At season's end, Lopez could net the team a compensation pick if he declines arbitration as a Type B...

Sox expected to announce Lopez deal today

NEW YORK -- According to a baseball source, infielder Felipe Lopez is expected to join the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium on Saturday, where he will make his new deal with the team official.

 

Lopez had been placed on release waivers by the St. Louis Cardinals earlier in the week after hitting .231/.310/.340/.651 for the Cardinals with seven homers and 36 RBI in 109 games. The Cardinals released him after he arrived late to the ballpark prior to a game, something that both St. Louis manager Tony LaRussa and GM John Mozielak said had occurred on multiple occasions.

 

The Padres claimed the versatile 30-year-old in order to strengthen their bench following the season-ending injury to Jerry Hairston Jr. But rather than join the Padres for the final days of the regular season, Lopez -- who would have been ineligible for the postseason roster should the Padres reach the playoffs -- instead rejected the claim in order to...
