Francona: Ellsbury proving he's durable

NEW YORK -- Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury has played in all 38 of his team's games thus far in 2011. That, of course, comes in stark contrast to a 2010 campaign when injuries limited him to just 18 contests.

He has played despite sustaining a number of dings and bruises thanks to the aggressiveness demanded of him both as a center fielder and as a base-stealing threat in the leadoff spot. On Friday, for instance, he appeared to suffer a twisted right knee when he changed direction on the bases between second and third. After being checked by Sox trainer Mike Reinold, he stayed in the game, and on Saturday morning, Ellsbury contacted manager Terry Francona to let him know he'd be available to claim his customary leadoff perch in the lineup.

Francona believes that Ellsbury is making a point through his durability.

“I think it’s a priority [for Ellsbury],” said Francona. “However you want to say it, whether he...

Drew sits, Cameron plays vs. Sabathia

NEW YORK -- With Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia on the hill in New York, the Red Sox will feature a slightly modified lineup on Saturday night. J.D. Drew will sit against the New York ace, with Mike Cameron filling in as the right fielder. Cameron is a career .474 hitter against Sabathia, and owns a 1.440 OPS against his former teammate. Among players with at least 20 plate appearances against Sabathia, Cameron has the third highest OPS, behind only Manny Ramirez (1.902) and Miguel Cabrera (1.591).

Jed Lowrie will hit sixth, while Jason Varitek will serve as the catcher for starter Josh Beckett.

Bergeron skates, McQuaid in for Game 1
By: DJ Bean

Bruins center Patrice Bergeron skated prior to the team's morning skate Saturday, marking the first time the team's postseason points leader has taken the ice since suffering a concussion in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals vs. the Flyers.

"He went out and just had a light skate this morning," coach Claude Julien said following the team's morning skate in anticipation of Game 1 of the conference finals vs. the Lightning. "That's where he's at now, just a light skate on his own.

"This is something that's just protocol, that he's going through the normal stuff," the coach added. "Today was a light skate on his own, and he just got off the ice when we went on. I don't think there's much more that we can give you except that it can go either way. We're certainly not going to comment on that kind of stuff and just hope that he keeps getting better."

While Bergeron will miss at least the beginning of...

Homers, Buchholz pave way for Red Sox win

NEW YORK -- Home runs by Adrian Gonzalez and Kevin Youkilis, along with a fine pitching performance from starter Clay Buchholz, led the Red Sox to a 5-4 win over the Yankees in the teams' series-opener at Yankee Stadium Friday night.

Buchholz only allowed two runs on five hits in his seven innings, striking out seven and walking one while throwing 110 pitches. He was followed up by Daniel Bard and Jonathan Papelbon, who the eighth and ninth innings, respectively.

Papelbon allowed one run in the ninth when Curtis Granderson plated Derek Jeter with a two-out single, but the closer got Mark Teixeira to pop up to third to end the threat and the game. Bard also escaped a tight jam in the eighth, striking out Nick Swisher and inducing a ground out from Jorge Posada with runners on second and third.

The Sox jumped to a two-run lead in the fourth inning against Yankees starter Bartolo Colon thanks in part to Gonzalez' eighth homer of the season...
