BALTIMORE -- Red Sox outfielder Jeremy Hermida underwent X-rays on his left forearm after hurting it in a collision with teammate Adrian Beltre while both chased a foul fly ball down the left field line in the bottom of the third inning of their 11-0 win over the Orioles. Hermida initially stayed in the game, but on a swinging strikeout in the top of the fifth inning, it proved difficult to grip the bat, resulting in his departure from the game.
The X-rays came back negative, and Hermida was diagnosed with a left forearm contusion. He expressed hope that he could be available to play on Saturday with treatment.
"I'm going to ice the heck out of it tonight, and we'll see how it is [Saturday]," said Hermida. "It’s tough [to grip], real tough, but I tried to go out there. Hopefully I can go out there, battle through it, grip the bat, swing it. Hopefully it’ll be fine tomorrow."

Given the recent Ray Rice suspension, many people are comparing it to Josh Gordon getting suspended for repeated drug abuse. Tim Benz doesn't think this is a fair comparison. He explains why.

A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years.
