Nava time again: Red Sox rally for win

Daniel Nava took a 95 mile-per-hour fastball to the ribs with the bases loaded to break a 5-5 tie and then made a sensational diving grab of a sinking liner as the Red Sox erased a 5-2 deficit and beat the Los Angeles Angels, 7-5, Wednesday night at Fenway Park. Adrian Beltre belted a two-run homer in the fifth to draw the Red Sox to within one run before Boston took the lead with two runs in the seventh. 

 

Jonathan Papelbon struck out the side in a perfect ninth inning for his 30th save and his first save since blowing last Thursday's game against Toronto. Papelbon became the first pitcher in major league history to record at least 30 saves in his first five full big league seasons. John Lackey pitched seven innings for the win. 

 

The Red Sox managed to keep pace with the Tampa Bay Rays and the New York Yankees in the American League East and the American League wild card race. The Red Sox stand 5 1/2 games...

Cameron: 'I'm not dead. I'll be back'

Mike Cameron admitted Wednesday that the pain in his lower abdomen simply got to be too much. The Red Sox veteran center fielder announced in front of his locker Wednesday afternoon that he will have surgery in the next two weeks to repair an injury that's bothered him since opening day.

 

"Everyone knows I've been battling all year so it's time," the 37-year-old Cameron said of his upcoming surgery on his lower abdomen injury. "I can't go on the field and compete in this moment like I would like to, so it's time." 

 

Cameron, who played in just 48 games this season, went on the disabled list on Aug. 2 for a second and final time before announcing Wednesday that his season is over.

 

"I've always been kind of a fast healer," Cameron said. "Who knows? This is unchartered waters for me, but with a positive mind frame and who knows, with good old nature of medicine and...

Ranaudo, Workman to report to Lowell

Right-handed pitchers Anthony Ranaudo and Brandon Workman, whom the Red Sox selected in the first two rounds of June's MLB draft and were signed prior to Monday night's deadline, will report to Single A Lowell but will not pitch. 

 

An elite arm with a massive 6-foot-7 frame, Ranaudo entered his junior season at LSU as one of the country's top pitchers. From there, elbow issues, inconsistency, and representation by Scott Boras led to his slide to the 39th overall pick. Whether or not the Red Sox would come to terms with the righty served as a popular storyline throughout a summer in which he went 3-0 with a 0.00 earned run average over 29 1/3 innings for the Brewster Whitecaps of the Cape Cod Baseball League. The two sides agreed to a deal worth $2.55 million prior to the 11.59 p.m. deadline Monday night.

MLPBA files grievance re: K-Rod, Mets
By: DJ Bean

Following is the press release just sent out by the MLBPA regarding Mets reliever Francisco Rodriguez, who was recently placed on the disqualified list after injuring himself in a fight with his father-in-law.  

 

Today, the Major League Baseball Players Association filed a grievance against the New York Mets and the Commissioner's Office challenging yesterday's actions taken against relief pitcher Francisco Rodriguez. The grievance challenges both Francisco's placement on the Disqualified List and the conversion of his contract to non-guaranteed status.

 

Because the grievance alleges material breaches of Francisco's contract (including non-payment of salary), the Basic Agreement requires that the matter be processed expeditiously. No hearing date has been set.
