Lester: 'I'm at a loss right now'

Following the Red Sox’ 4-1 loss to the Braves, Jon Lester expressed his frustration, with the Sox having come away with losses in four of his last six starts.

"I don't know. I'm getting tired of the same old [expletive],” Lester said. “I'm making good pitches, and they're getting hit. I don't know what else to do. The process is there. I'm still not getting results. It's the same book, different chapter for me."

Lester finished his outing allowing three runs on 10 hits over seven innings (throwing 118 pitches).

In his last six starts, the lefty has totaled a 1-2 record with a 5.30 ERA, with opponents hitting .309 against him. He has given up a total of 102 hits over his 15 starts. It took the starter until July 25 last season (19 starts) to allow as many hits as he has surrendered this season.

“I'm not up in the zone -- down on the corners, and still getting whacked around. I'm at a loss right now,...

False launch: Clemens watches Sox lose

Martin Prado and Jason Heyward each had three hits while righty Jair Jurrjens stifled the Red Sox on three hits over 7 2/3 innings to lead the Braves to a 4-1 win on Friday night at Fenway Park. The loss snapped Boston's five-game winning streak. After being found not guilty on all federal perjury charges earlier in the week, seven-time Cy Young winner Roger Clemens - the team's all-time co-leader in wins - took in the game from the front row of Monster seats. 

Both Jurrjens and Red Sox starter Jon Lester did not appear affected by a rain delay of one hour, 14 minutes before the first pitch. It was scoreless contest through three innings. After Adrian Gonzalez lined a single past the shift and into left field in the first inning, Jurrjens did not allow another hit until Will Middlebrooks rifled a double off the center field wall to open the eighth. 

Jurrjens entered Friday's start having struggled badly this year in four previous...

Bruins take goalie Subban with first pick

The Bruins selected goaltender Malcolm Subban with their first round pick (24th overall) of the 2012 NHL draft on Friday.

Subban, brother of Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban, played for the Belleville Bulls of the Ontario Hockey League last year, and was the top-ranked North American goaltending prospect by NHL Central Scouting. In the 2011-12 season with the Bulls, Subban recorded a 2.50 GAA and a .923 save percentage in 39 games played. The Rexdale, Ontario native is 6-foot-1 and weighs 188 pounds.

The selection comes following recent reports that Tim Thomas will not be playing with the Bruins next season and has waived his no-trade clause.

Sandusky found guilty on 45 of 48 counts

Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky has been found guilty of molesting 10 boys over 15 years. The jury, which had deliberated for just over 20 hours, found Sandusky guilty in 45 of the 48 counts in his child sexual abuse case.

After the verdict was read, Sandusky was taken to county jail to await sentencing in about three months. During the trial, Sandusky never took the stand in his own defense.

Hill ready to throw after second opinion

Rich Hill told WEEI.com prior to the Red Sox' game Friday night against the Braves that he is scheduled to throw Tuesday, which would be the first time since going on the 15-day disabled list with a strained flexor tendon in his left elbow.

Thursday night, Hill talked to Dr. Lewis Yocum, who analyzed the MRI results taken by Dr. James Andrews. The conclusion of Yocum was in line with what Andrews had originally diagnosed, which mandated the lefty reliever to not participate in any throwing for two weeks. Of note was Yocum's discovery that none of the dye which was shot into Hill's elbow during the arthrogram MRI had leaked out, suggesting no tears in the elbow's surgically-repaired ligament.

Hill pitched in 17 games after coming back from Tommy John surgery, giving up four runs over 13 2/3 innings. He last pitched June 8 against Washington.
