Sox strike first: Buchholz beats Yanks

NEW YORK -- Clay Buchholz claimed his first career victory against the Yankees, allowing three runs on nine hits in 7 1/3 innings, leading his team past New York, 6-3. With the victory, the Sox moved within five games of he Yankees in the division, the closest they've been since the All-Star break.

 

Buchholz was touched early for a two-run homer by Mark Teixeira in the first inning, but the Sox quickly rallied back from three two-out runs in the top of the second. Jacoby Ellsbury drew a bases loaded walk, and Marco Scutaro lined a two-run double down the left field line against Yankees starter Javier Vazquez. After the Yankees rallied for a run in the bottom of the fifth, Ryan Kalish gave his club some breathing room by stroking a two-run homer to right-center, the first of his career.

 

The Yankees never again threatened, as Buchholz handed the baton directly to Daniel Bard (two outs) and Jonathan Papelbon, who threw a...

Kalish hits first career home run

NEW YORK -- Red Sox outfielder Ryan Kalish jumped on the first pitch he saw of his third at-bat against Yankees starter Javier Lopez, smoking an 85 mph changeup into the New York bullpen for a two-run homer. It was the first round-tripper of Kalish' career. The shot came in the outfielder's 20th at-bat (and seventh game) for the Sox.

John Henry: Sox 'need another miracle'

Red Sox owner John Henry told Tom Krasovic of AOL FanHouse that amidst an "almost astonishing" run of injuries, his team will "need another miracle" if it hopes to overtake the Yankees or Rays to reach the postseason. Henry said that the Sox, if healthy, would have been well-positioned to compete against their AL East rivals, but that -- while not giving up hope for the 2010 season -- the catastrophic run of injuries to key players will be difficult to overcome.

 

Henry also defended outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury from critics who suggested that he took too long to return from his broken ribs.

 

"No one should question his desire to compete," Henry wrote to Krasovic in an email. "In fact, he came back too soon initially. We didn't realize he was as badly hurt as he was. No one was...

Sox 'doing their homework' on Delgado

NEW YORK -- According to a major league source, the Red Sox were simply "doing their homework" by holding a workout for first baseman Carlos Delgado in New York on Friday. Delgado has not played since May 2009, when hip surgery sidelined him for the remainder of a season that he started by hitting .298 with a .914 OPS and four homers in 26 games for the Mets.

 

Delgado has been out of pro ball in the States this year, but he has been talking to teams in hopes of finding a fit for the rest of the year. While the Sox are exploring the market for left-handed hitting first basemen who might make complement the right-handed Mike Lowell (who has his own hip issues), Delgado's own physical limitations might make him an imperfect match. Even so, that is a question that the Sox are at least willing to consider.

Pedroia on return date: 'I just don't know'

NEW YORK -- Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia made incremental progress on Friday, jogging 90 feet nine times at 70 percent. He said that he was faster than when he last ran earlier in the week, but at the same time, he continues to feel discomfort in the area where he suffered a fractured navicular bone.

 

Friday marks the six-week point in Pedroia's recovery from the broken bone. Originally, he had vowed to be back by this point, but it is now apparent that he needs a new goal.

 

"If they would have told me how realistic [the six-week goal] would be at the beginning, then I’d have probably set different goals," said Pedroia. "I still felt it [while running on Friday]. It still hurt. But I was running faster, so that’s a good thing. My goal is to play when we get home [on Aug. 17]. I don’t know if that’s realistic. I just don’t know."
