Bombs away: Rangers crush Lester, Sox

The Rangers lit up Jon Lester for seven runs and eight hits over just two-plus innings, matching the shortest start of his career, as the defending American League champs obliterated the Red Sox, 18-3, Tuesday night at Fenway Park. After winning their first three at home, the Red Sox have dropped two straight in falling to 4-7 on the season. The Rangers hit six home runs -- all well over 400 feet -- including one by Josh Hamilton of nearly 500 feet that landed in the vicinity of the Ted Williams seat in right field off beleagured reliever Mark Melancon. The Rangers pounded 21 hits in the offensive explosion. 

Lester was spotted to a 2-0 lead after one inning when Dustin Pedroia launched his third homer of the season into the second row of Monster seats, with Mike Aviles aboard. Aviles, Pedroia and Adrian Gonzalez led off the game with three consecutive hits against Colby Lewis. He allowed just three hits after that over the next six innings in...

Bobby V: 'No way to know' Youk reaction

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said before Tuesday's game that he has no idea if there will be a negative carryover from his public comments about Kevin Youkilis on WHDH-TV Sunday. After giving Youkilis the day off on Monday to rest his sore groin, Valentine returned Youkilis to starting lineup on Tuesday, batting him fifth and playing third base. 

"No way to know," Valentine said. "I hope not." 

Valentine questioned Youkilis' emotional state of mind in the interview on Sunday before ending the conversation by saying everyone will eventually see the usual good production from the third baseman. Youkilis requested and received a meeting with Valentine before Monday's game and Dustin Pedroia cleared the air in another meeting with the manager, after he objected with the way he publicly called out Youkilis. 

In other pregame news Tuesday, Valentine said Carl Crawford made four plate appearances in an extended...

Youkilis back hitting fifth vs. Rangers

After a day off to rest his groin on Monday, Kevin Youkilis returns to the lineup on Tuesday against the Texas Rangers and Colby Lewis. Youkilis is 2-for-9 with a pair of doubles against Lewis. Adrian Gonzalez is worth watching against Lewis, as he owns incredible numbers against the right-hander in limited at-bats. In eight plate appearances between the two, Gonzalez has reached base seven times, going 6-for-7 with a walk, two homers and a double.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia will get the start behind the plate for pitcher Jon Lester, who will be looking for his first win of the year.

O's claim Exposito from Sox on waivers

The Orioles claimed 25-year-old catcher Luis Exposito off waivers from the Red Sox. Exposito was taken in the 31st round of the 2005 draft, then signed shortly before the 2006 draft as the last player whom the Sox acquired through the now-defunct draft-and-follow process. He showed good defensive tools and significant right-handed raw power, but struggled against more advanced pitching in the upper levels, with a .241/.297/.368/.665 line in Triple-A over the last two seasons. Exposito was called up twice in the 2011 season by the Red Sox when there was a need for emergency catching depth, but never entered a game. With both Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Kelly Shoppach in the majors, Ryan Lavarnway in Triple-A and Dan Butler (who seemingly surpassed Exposito on the organizational depth chart during spring training) in Double-A, Exposito was taken off the 40-man roster this weekend when the Sox needed to clear a pair of roster spots for Nate Spears and Jason Repko....
