Red Sox/Rangers in rain delay

The Red Sox and Rangers are in a rain delay, with the game tied at 2-2 after three innings. The game was halted just prior to starting the third inning. Texas had jumped out to a 2-0 lead after the first inning, scoring a pair on two hits off of Red Sox starter Felix Doubront. The Sox responded in the second inning when Kevin Youkilis led off with a double, was plated by a J.D. Drew single, ultimately leading to Drew tying the game by coming in on a Colby Lewis wild pitch.

Second round of British Open suspended
By: DJ Bean

Mother nature got in the way of the British Open in more than one way on Friday. First, the second round saw a one-hour and five-minute delay due to winds of 41 miles per hour. The day later concluded early on account of darkness.

 

South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen, who had actually missed the cut in all but one of his last eight major championship appearances, remained the surprise leader when play was halted, shot a five-under 67 and is atop the leaderboard with a 12-under 132. Mark Calcavecchia trails him at seven-under, with Paul Casey, Lee Westwood, and Steven Tiley tied for third at six-under.

Pedroia off crutches; Varitek slowed

Red Sox manager Terry Francona announced Friday that Dustin Pedroia received a good medical report on the broken bone in his left foot and has been fitted for a boot to allow weight-bearing activity. 

 

"The scan showed on Pedey a lot of healing, which is really good news," Francona said. "He's allowed to begin weight-bearing [activity]. He has to keep the boot on for approximately a week-to-two weeks, probably two weeks." 

 

Pedroia broke a bone in his left foot with a foul ball on June 25 in San Francisco and has been out since. The news is not as good for Jason Varitek. He was catching in a game at Fenway against Tampa Bay on June 30 when he took a foul ball from Carl Crawford off his right foot. It broke a similar bone and sent him to the DL.

 

"Tek is a little bit behind," Francona added. "There's not as much healing with Tek, which I think they...

Gammons: Ellsbury situation 'curious'
By: DJ Bean

Hall of Fame baseball analyst Peter Gammons joined The Big Show on Friday and discussed the Red Sox' upcoming stretch, the trade market, the passing of George Steinbrenner, and the ongoing Jacoby Ellsbury saga. 

 

Gammons called the situation with Ellsbury, which was given a bit more attention last weekend when he addressed reporters with notes and a timeline of his injury, "curious." Gammons said that he expects the center fielder to be back by the beginning of next month and that the team and Ellsbury will "kiss and make up if he plays."

 

"I think this is always going to be a cautious relationship," Gammons said, also adding that despite how fishy things have gone since Ellsbury injured broke his ribs in a collision with Adrian Beltre, the team "needs him."

 

With regard to the trade deadline, Gammons said there is very little chance the Red Sox would trade...

Lineups: Beltre starting, Patterson in center
By: DJ Bean

Eric Patterson will start in center field for the first time as a member of the Red Sox Friday as his team looks to exact revenge vs. the Rangers. The Sox fell to Texas, 7-2, but with Patterson having a good track record against Rangers starter Colby Lewis (triple, homer, 2 RBI, and a walk in six plate appearances), it's no wonder he is batting second. Adrian Beltre also returns to the starting lineup.
