John Henry: 'I believe we will' contend

In an email to following the Red Sox' 4-1 win over the Indians, Red Sox principal owner John Henry stated that he has faith -- despite his team's rocky start -- that the Sox have what it takes to get back into the playoff race.

"If we get the kind of pitching we're used to we'll be fine," Henry wrote. "Our offense has been great -- second in the AL. The bullpen has settled in and these last two nights we've gotten the starting pitching we've been needing to get.

"We have 80 percent of the season left. If we get pitching and get healthy we'll contend. I believe we will."

With the most recent win, the Red Sox improved to 14-19, 7 1/2 games in back of first-place Baltimore in the American League East. It was just the second time this season the Sox have won back-to-back games at Fenway Park, having last accomplished the feat during their first home series of the season, winning three in a row against Tampa Bay...

Sox crush Indians for third straight win
By: DJ Bean

The Red Sox got to a pair of former Boston pitchers early and often as they beat the Indians, 12-1, Sunday at Fenway Park. The victory was Boston's third in a row, and Daniel Bard's first win in the month of May.

The Red Sox had big innings in the first and seventh. They did their damage against Justin Masterson in the first, as they plated four runs on RBIs from Will Middlebrooks, Daniel Nava and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Masterson eventually settled down but ended the day having allowed six earned runs over six innings thanks to a third-inning homer from Middlebrooks and another Saltalamacchia RBI single in the sixth.

It was once Masterson was out of the game that things really got out of hand. The Sox lit up former Sox reliever Dan Wheeler to the tune of five hits and six runs in the seventh inning, including a two-run homer from Saltalamacchia.

Bard went six innings, throwing 97 pitches and allowing one earned run. He walked four batters...

McDonald to DL, Red Sox recall Gomez
By: DJ Bean

The Red Sox placed outfielder Darnell McDonald on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with an oblique injury and recalled first baseman Mauro Gomez from Triple-A Pawtucket. Gomez was in the Red Sox' clubhouse Sunday morning. 

Gomez, 27, was hitting .294 with a .336 on-base percentage, .610 slugging percentage, 10 homers and 33 RBIs for Pawtucket. He was signed by the Red Sox in February. McDonald had just one at-bat over the last four games, a strikeout Friday night against the Indians.

Bobby V: Daisuke's mechanics off Saturday
By: DJ Bean

Bobby Valentine said prior to Sunday's game that he didn't like what he saw in Daisuke Matsuzaka's latest rehab start for Triple-A Pawtucket. Matsuzaka, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery, threw 90 pitches over 5 1/3 innings and allowed five runs and seven hits against Columbus Saturday at McCoy Stadium. 

"I watched the game. I didn't think he was as good as he should be," Valentine said. "His mechanics [weren't] very good at all, I think. But he's throwing pain-free, so that's good." 

Valentine said that Matsuzaka will have two more rehab starts (May 17 and 22) "to get his whole thing together." The manager added that he and his staff will review Saturday's outing in further detail Sunday. 

"I've been watching him," he said. "Right now he's worried about his strength and his ability to endure pitches and things like that." 

Valentine had six-man rotations...

Garnett: 'I have no life at this point'

Kevin Garnett wasn't talking about disrespect and he wasn't talking about his age after scoring 29 points against Philadelphia in the Celtics' 92-91 win in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

"I have no life at this point," Garnett said. "I go home, get treatment, come back in here, study tape, film. No life at all. It's what it is."

Garnett played 38 minutes in the opener and all 12 in the fourth quarter. Coach Doc Rivers acknowledged that playing him that much was a problem, but it's what he has to do this point.

"It's so hard when he's off the floor for those 10 or 12 minutes," Rivers said. "I mean, you're in a panic right now. And we have to. Our plus/minus when he's off the floor is horrendous. So that's an area we have to improve on. But when he's on the floor he's doing everything for us."

Said Sixers coach Doug Collins, "I've never seen him play better."
