Reddick, Ortiz lead Red Sox past Seattle

Josh Reddick's two-run home run in the sixth inning gave the Red Sox the lead for good, leading the visitors to a 6-4 win over the Mariners in the teams' series-opener at Safeco Field in Seattle Friday night. 

Also playing a key role in the Sox' win was David Ortiz, who got his team on the board with a solo homer in the second inning, and then helped add an insurance run via an RBI single in the seventh. Ortiz was one of four Red Sox hitters to come away with a pair of hits, joining Adrian Gonzalez, Dustin Pedroia, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. For Gonzalez, it was his big league-leading 52nd multiple-hit game.

Earning the win was Sox starter John Lackey, who got out of early-game jams to finish his six-inning outing by allowing four runs on 10 hits. It was Lackey's seventh win in his last eight starts. The righty allowed eight baserunners in the first two innings, giving up three runs in the process, but settled down after that. Lackey...

Youkliis, Scutaro scratched due to back pain

Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis, who was originally in the starting lineup and hitting fourth, was scratched from his team's series opener with the Mariners due to a sore lower back. With Youkilis out, Jed Lowrie stepped in at third base, with Dustin Pedroia moving to the cleanup spot. Lowrie helped propel the Sox to a 6-4 win over the M's Friday night, hitting his first home run since April 20.

Another late scratch was shortstop Marco Scutaro, who also was suffering from back pain. He was replaced by Mike Aviles, who contributed with a sacrifice fly in the Sox' win.

Police surround home of ex-Pats coach

A police SWAT team has surrounded the home of former Patriots coach Corwin Brown, according to a report in the South Bend Tribune. Police arrived earlier in the day in response to a domestic disturbance call and the SWAT team was called in after shots were reported fired from inside the house. It is believed that Brown is the only person inside the house.

Brown coached the Patriots' secondary in 2010 but was let go in February. He was previously the defensive coordinator at Notre Dame. Brown was drafted in the fourth round by the Patriots in 1993 and played four seasons in New England before joining the Jets in 1997.

Millar: HR Derby didn't affect Gonzalez

Appearing as a guest on the Mut & Merloni show on Friday, MLB Network analyst Kevin Millar said that he doesn't think the Home Run Derby had a negative affect on Adrian Gonzazlez who has hit only one home run since participating in the event.

"It’s the same thing we heard about Bobby Abreu when he went to Detroit and hit 50 homers, then came back and hit two for the second half," Millar said. "Home run derby doesn’t screw your swing up. OK? Playing golf doesn’t screw your swing up. You know when you’re in BP you’re trying to launch and hit homers and you know if you’re in a 1-2 count and facing Josh Beckett you better fight your way to get that ball in play. So I don’t buy into any of that. You go through droughts in the big leagues."

Millar was also dismissive about reports of sign-stealing in Toronto. Millar relayed the story of the Indians accusing the Sox' Mike Timlin of...

Belichick on signing Mankins: 'It's great'

On Friday, Patriots coach Bill Belichick addressed the new contract for Pro Bowl offensive lineman Logan Mankins, saying it was “great” to have him inked to a long-term deal and calling Mankins “one of our best players.”

“It’s great. I think the world of Logan,” Belichick said on a conference call with reporters. “He’s done a great job for us here since he’s come to the Patriots. I’m glad that he’ll be here for many years in the future. He’s one of our best players, one of our most consistent players. He’s been durable, has a great work ethic, he’s really smart. He plays hard. He plays tough. There are almost no negatives with Logan.

“He’s an outstanding person. He’s an outstanding player. He does things the way that we would like our team to do them, so he’s a great example for all of us to look at, because he plays hard,...
