Buchholz after loss: 'The back's fine'

 

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- After Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine cited Clay Buchholz's stiff back as the reason he took the starter out after 94 pitches Thursday night, Buchholz downplayed any ailment.

"The back's fine," said Buchholz following the Red Sox' 7-4 loss to the Rays. "I had a couple of long innings and I felt like somebody else could do a better job than I could. I was up and ready to go going into the eighth, there was a pitching change, and I was like, 'You know what? I've thrown 95 pitches and a couple of them have been taxing, so that was that.' "

The pitcher later added when asked again about his back, "It's basically everyday soreness. It's fine."

The issue is a sensitive one considering Buchholz missed almost four months of 2011 due to surgery on his back. The ailment hasn't been a problem for the righty, who finished his latest outing not allowing a run while giving up just four...

Red Sox, Bailey succumb to Rays' comeback

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- B.J. Upton completed a furious ninth-inning comeback by the Rays when he launched a three-run homer against Vicente Padilla. The one-out home run handed Tampa Bay a 7-4 win over the Red Sox at Tropicana Field.

The homer completed a six-run ninth by the Rays, who managed to split the four-game series with the Thursday night victory.

Andrew Bailey suffered through his worst outing as a Red Sox, blowing a three-run, ninth-inning lead, managing just one out. The Sox closer gave way to Padilla, leaving with runners on second and third, one out and Upton at the plate. Desmond Jennings drove Bailey from the game with a two-run, bases-loaded double, setting the stage for Upton's homer.

For eight innings, it looked like Clay Buchholz would win the battle of aces, as he got the better of the Rays and their starter, David Price. Buchholz didn't allow a run over his seven innings, surrendering just four hits while striking...

Dooling announces surprise retirement

After 12 seasons in the NBA, Keyon Dooling announced his retirement on Thursday. The Celtics subsequently waived the veteran guard for the purpose of clearing a roster spot just over a week before the team opens training camp for the 2012-13 season.

"Keyon has decided that he has given the NBA 12 good years and that it’s time to pursue other interests and spend more time with his family. He will never forget his time in Boston with the Celtics," Dooling's representative, Kenge Stevenson, announced in a statement. 

Dooling, 32, averaged seven points in his 12 seasons, including 4.0 points a game in 46 games for the Celtics last season. He also played for the Clippers, Heat, Magic, Nets and Bucks over his career. 

“We’ll miss Keyon’s spirit and energy, both on and off the court,” Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said in a statement. “The whole Celtics family wishes...
