Pedroia goes 0-for-3 in final tuneup
By: DJ Bean

PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- Appearing in his second and final rehab game for Triple A Pawtucket, Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia went 0-for-3 in a 3-1 victory over the Buffalo Bisons on Sunday.

 

Pedroia, who hit third and served as the team's designated hitter, grounded into a 1-6-3 double play off Buffalo starter Raul Valdes to end the first inning. He had hard-hit balls in each of his next two at-bats, flying out to deep right and left in the fourth and sixth innings, respectively. 

 

Pedroia has been out with a broken bone in his left foot since June 25. He went 1-for-3 with a single on Saturday while playing second base for the PawSox and is set to return to the Red Sox on Tuesday. 

 

Carlos Delgado left the game after three innings and was replaced by Lars Anderson at first base. Manager Torey Lovullo noted before the game that Delgado was scheduled to have the day off after playing Saturday...

Lineups: Ortiz, Drew sit against Rangers

With tough Rangers left-hander C.J. Wilson on the hill for Texas, Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz and right fielder J.D. Drew are both out of the lineup on Sunday afternoon. Wilson has held lefties to a .103 average (11-for-107) with a .317 OPS this year, leaving the Sox inclined to stack the lineup with as many right-handed hitters as possible.

 

Victor Martinez will get the start as the first baseman, while Mike Lowell will serve as DH. Jed Lowrie, who left Friday's game due to heat exhaustion, remains out, forcing the Sox to put left-handed hitting Eric Patterson in left while putting Bill Hall at second base.

Belichick: Brady finger injury not an issue

FOXBORO — Patriots coach Bill Belichick doesn't sound too worried about the state of Tom Brady's throwing hand.

Speaking at his Sunday morning press conference, Belichick was asked about a report Brady suffered an injury to a finger on his throwing hand in the preseason opener against New Orleans. The coach smiled and replied, "I don't think it's life-threatening."

The Boston Herald reported over the weekend that Brady was spotted Saturday with two fingers taped together in an attempt to immobilize one injured finger on his right hand. The injury apparently occurred in the first half of Thursday's 27-24 preseason win over the Saints, a game where the quarterback ended up going 5-for-8 for 67 yards.

Brady has suffered injuries to his throwing hand before — last year, he broke the ring finger on his throwing hand late in the season.

Hermida on DFA: 'I was kind of surprised'

PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- Speaking for the first time since being designated for assignment by the Red Sox on July 31, outfielder Jeremy Hermida said the move by the Sox caught him off guard, but he feels the recent time away from the game may have done him some good. 

 

"I was kind of surprised," said Hermida, who is 3-for-9 in two games since joining the Pawtucket Red Sox. "[The potential of leaving the organization] definitely crossed my mind. I'm not too familiar with the process, being the first time something like this has happened to me. In the back of my mind I was think I might be somewhere else. But things happen for a reason and I'm here for however long, doing the best I can.

 

"I took some time in those 10 days, I tried to use them to my advantage when I was home. Did some studying, learning about myself a little bit, going back and watching some stuff just trying to figure out how to come out...

Lester leads Sox past Rangers

Jon Lester was dominant, throwing eight scoreless innings of five-hit baseball to lead the Red Sox past the Rangers, 3-1, on Saturday night in Arlington Texas.

Lester (13-7) retired 15 of the last 16 hitters he faced, and ended up with five strikeouts and no walks. Scott Atchison started the ninth and yielded a solo homer to Josh Hamilton for the Rangers only run of the night, while rookie southpaw Felix Doubront finished up.

The win snapped a two-game skid for the Red Sox, who had suffered two heartbreaking defeats over the previous two days — the first coming in Toronto on Thursday, when they entered the ninth with a 5-2 lead but lost 6-5, and the second coming Friday evening in Texas when they couldn’t hold an 8-2 edge and lost 10-9.

In the fifth, J.D. Drew delivered an RBI single that gave the Sox a 1-0 lead, while Bill Hall and Marco Scutaro added single RBI’s in the ninth that gave Boston a little...
