Lowell goes 4-for-4 for PawSox

Red Sox corner infielder Mike Lowell, in his second rehab game with Triple-A Pawtucket, went 4-for-4 with three doubles against the Columbus Clippers (Triple-A affiliate of the Indians) on Saturday. Two of the doubles were lined to left field, one kicked off the glove of the Clippers' first baseman and into right field and the single was dunked into right. After his fourth hit, Lowell -- who played first base on Saturday -- was lifted for a pinch-runner.

 

Lowell has now played two rehab games for Pawtucket. He will play again on Sunday, starting at third base.

Rondo on Heat: 'They ain't done nothing yet'

Rajon Rondo told Yahoo! Sports that although the Miami Heat "should be good" in 2009-10, they aren't necessarily the favorites to win the NBA crown.

 

"They should be good, but they ain't done nothing yet," Rondo told Marc Spears following a recent practice for Team USA in Las Vegas. "They ain't done nothing."

 

The prospect of facing LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami doesn't appear to faze the All-Star point guard.

 

"What is there to be nervous for?” Rondo said to Yahoo!. “I’m worried about L.A. That’s the team we need to beat. Miami looks really good on paper, and I’m sure they’re going to be really good. But they still have to come together as a team. I’m not saying they won’t, but who knows if those guys can jell?

Source: Pats, Cunningham reach agreement

According to a league source, the Patriots have reached an agreement with second-round pick Jermaine Cunningham on a four-year contract. (The news was first reported via a Tweet from ESPN's Adam Schefter.) Cunningham, who was taken in the second round (53rd overall) by New England this spring, is a 6-foot-3, 266-pounder who was a defensive end in college, who had 19½ sacks and 33 tackles for loss over the course of his collegiate career with Florida. He is expected to play outside linebacker in New England’s 3-4 system. For more on this story, check out the Patriots' team page at weei.com/patriots.

Ellsbury, Martinez getting closer to returns

Both outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury and catcher Victor Martinez could play in games as soon as Monday, Red Sox manager Terry Francona told reporters in Seattle. While Ellsbury is slated to start a minor league rehab stint by playing in the Gulf Coast League next Monday and Tuesday (with the possibility of going to Triple-A Pawtucket later in the week), Francona told reporters there was "a possibility" that Martinez could be activated from the disabled list during the upcoming series in Anaheim next Monday through Wednesday.

 

Ellsbury has played in just nine games this year due to five non-displaced rib fractures. He is hitting .250/.267/.341/.608. Martinez, who has been out since suffering a fracture in the tip of his left thumb on June 27, is hitting .289/.344/.480/.824.

Lineups: Hermida makes his return

For the first time in five games, the Red Sox will face a right-handed starter. Former Sox pitcher David Pauley will toe the slab for the Mariners on Saturday, and so Boston will adjust its lineup in Seattle. Most notably, Jeremy Hermida will get his first start since June 9.

 

Both Bill Hall and Mike Cameron will get the day off, with Jed Lowrie playing at second base for the second straight night and Eric Patterson getting his second start in center field since coming to the Sox.

 

For the Mariners, Chone Figgins will be back in the lineup, one day after he was pulled for his lack of effort in fielding a throw into the infield from left fielder Michael Saunders. Figgins had to be separated from other members of his club during a dugout altercation that followed his being pulled on Friday.

 

Lineups are below. For complete matchup information,...
