Report: Ogunleye works out for Pats

The Patriots worked out defensive end Adewale Ogunleye this afternoon, according to multiple media outlets. Ogunleye, 32, is a nine-year veteran who has played for Chicago and Miami and has 67 career quarterback sacks, including 15 with the Dolphins back in 2003. A 6-foot-4, 260-pounder undrafted free agent out of Indiana, Ogunleye could be a candidate to replace linebacker/defensive end Derrick Burgess if Burgess does decide to retire, as has been reported.

Red Sox take rubber game from Tigers

Pinch-runner Darnell McDonald scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth on a throwing error as the Red Sox overcame Jonathan Papelbon blowing a 3-0 lead in the ninth to beat the Detroit Tigers, 4-3, on Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park. The Red Sox took 2-of-3 from the Tigers and have won five-of-six. 

 

Adrian Beltre had two hits and drove in one while Clay Buchholz threw eight shutout innings as the Red Sox built a 3-0 lead. Buchholz outdueled Detroit ace Justin Verlander on the sunny afternoon, allowing just three hits before giving way to Papelbon with runners on first and second and none out in the ninth. Cabrera roped Papelbon's first pitch high off the center field wall for a two-run double before Jhonny Peralta tied it one out later with a seeing-eye single up the middle to score pinch-runner Don Kelly. 

 

But the Red Sox responded in the ninth with an infield single by Jed Lowrie, a walk to Eric...

Tito: Lowell decision 'up food chain from me'

The Mike Lowell drama continues at Fenway Park as the Red Sox and the veteran third baseman are in talks about his future with the team. Red Sox manager Terry Francona said Sunday morning that he and general manager Theo Epstein were talking at length following Saturday's game and were prepared to activate Lowell for today's game but the team backed off as they try to determine the best course of action with the 2007 World Series MVP.

 

"We were going to activate him," Francona said. "There were some conversations that is probably up the food chain from me a little bit that needs to continue to happen. Mikey's not active today. Those conversations I know will continue to happen but like I said, it's up the food chain a little from me."
