Nava-time again as Red Sox edge O's

Daniel Nava's pinch-hit bloop single down the right field line scored Marco Scutaro with the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth as the Red Sox beat the Orioles, 3-2, on Friday night at Fenway Park. J.D. Drew homered twice for Boston's first two runs, his 17th career multi-homer game.

 

Tim Wakefield [3-6] was the beneficiary of the dramatic two-out hit off reliever Will Ohman as the Red Sox knuckleballer went eight strong innings, allowing seven hits and two runs while striking out four for his third win of the season. The game was played in a brisk two hours, seven minutes. 

 

Jonathan Papelbon pitched a perfect ninth for his 19th save of the season as the injury-riddled Red Sox improved to 48-32 and drew to within a half-game of the first-place Yankees in the American League East.

Ranaudo throws seven scoreless innings

BOURNE -- Red Sox draftee Anthony Ranaudo, in his third start for the Brewster Whitecaps of the Cape Cod Baseball League, threw seven scoreless innings on Friday, scattering five hits while walking one batter and striking out five. He threw 88 pitches, 60 for strikes. In a start that featured both Red Sox GM Theo Epstein and amateur scouting director Amiel Sawdaye in attendance, Ranaudo's fastball velocity sat in the low-90s and topped out at 94 mph.

 

In three starts for Brewster, Ranaudo has now thrown 17 2/3 innings without allowing an earned run (he has given up one unearned run). He has allowed seven hits and walked three while striking out 16.

 

Ranaudo was taken by the Red Sox in the supplemental first round of this year's draft, with the No. 39 pick. According to a report in...

Cameron scratched, McDonald in

Red Sox center fielder Mike Cameron was a late scratch prior to the start of Friday's game against the Baltimore Orioles with abdominal soreness. In his place, Darnell McDonald got the start and was placed in the eighth spot in the lineup.

 

Cameron has been limited to 31 games this season due mostly to an abdominal strain he suffered in April. The 37-year-old is hitting .265/.324/.353/.677 in the first year of a two year, $15.5 million deal.

Tek: 'We're in a good position, really we are'

Despite the injuries piling up at an alarming rate, the captain of the Red Sox feels there's reason to be optimistic the team can overcome them and remain in contention in the second half of the season. 

 

"We’re in a good spot and that’s the good thing, really we are," Jason Varitek said. "Just to be where we’re at right now, with everything, even to this point this team has had to deal with, starting with the most important thing, starting pitching. Losing a couple of guys, having to adjust with that and then move from there. There’s a reason we are where we’re at because we’ve had contributions from a lot of people.” 

 

The Red Sox entered play Friday night with a 47-32 record, the third-best mark in the majors and just 1 1/2 games behind the Yankees in the American League East. The Yankees were beaten earlier Friday in extra innings by the Toronto Blue...

Beckett to pitch in GCL Tuesday
By: DJ Bean

Prior to Friday night's game with the Orioles, Red Sox manager Terry Francona spoke about a trio of Red Sox pitchers to encounter injuries lately. Francona said that Josh Beckett's most recent session went "very well," and that he tossed 41 pitches. Beckett will travel with the team on their upcoming road trip and will pitch a Gulf Coast League game on Tuesday. The team plans on Beckett throwing 55 pitches. 

 

Manny Delcarmen was in the process of getting an MRI on what Francona called a strained forearm, an injury the Sox manager said the reliever had been fighting for "about a week." The...
