Report: Downs, Frasor on waivers
By: DJ Bean

According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, relievers Scott Downs, Kevin Gregg and Jason Frasor were among five Blue Jays placed on waivers Wednesday. The Red Sox had expressed interest in Downs at the non-waiver deadline but were scared off by Toronto's asking price.

 

Downs, 34, has posted a 2.32 ERA with 21 holds this season. Gregg, meanwhile, has converted 28 saves in 32 opportunities while compiling 50 strikeouts and a 3.28 ERA in 46 1/3 innings. In 48 innings, Frasor has posted a 4.13 ERA and 1.50 WHIP.

Game 2 lineup: Lester scratched
By: DJ Bean

After taking the first game of Wednesday's day/night doubleheader with the Mariners, the Red Sox will send Tim Wakefield, and not Jon Lester, to the mound for the night cap. Wakefield hasn't started a game since July 20, when he gave up three earned runs over six innings in Oakland. Lester was moved to Friday because scheduled starter Daisuke Matsuzaka is experiencing back soreness.

 

Kevin Cash, activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, will get the start behind the played while Jed Lowrie will play second base and bat seventh.

Beckett back in form in Gm 1 win

Marco Scutaro had two hits and Daniel Nava had a key two-run single in a four-run sixth inning as the Red Sox beat the Mariners, 5-3, in the first game of a day-night doubleheader Wednesday at Fenway Park. Game 2 is scheduled for 7:10 as the Red Sox send Jon Lester up against Seattle ace Felix Hernandez. 

 

Former Red Sox righty David Pauley [2-5] retired the first nine batters he faced before Scutaro opened the fourth with a double down the left field line. Josh Beckett [4-3] pitched 6 1/3 strong innings, allowing just a leadoff infield single to Ichiro Suzuki and a walk over the first six innings. He surrendered a pair of long home runs to right in the seventh, one to Russell Branyan and a two-run blow by Casey Kotchman to make it a one-run game. The Red Sox, who won their fourth straight to improve to 73-54, picked up an insurance run in the eighth on a Darnell McDonald RBI single.

Report: Manny placed on waivers
By: DJ Bean

According to Buster Olney of ESPN, the Dodgers have placed outfielder Manny Ramirez on waivers. Should he be claimed, that team would have 48 hours to work out a deal with the Dodgers.

 

Multiple outlets have reported that the White Sox intend to claim Ramirez, who is hitting .306/.396./.497 with eight homers and 39 runs batted in this year in 63 games. After spending his first eight seasons in Cleveland, Ramirez played parts of eight years in Boston before being traded to the Dodgers at the 2008 trade deadline.

Tiger: 'My actions' led to divorce

Tiger Woods met the media Wednesday, just two days after his divorce to Elin Nordegren was finalized. The world's No. 1 ranked golfer was asked about Nordegren's comments in this week's People Magazine. In the People interview, Nordegren said that she "has been through hell" over the last 10 months and was "blindsided" when she learned about Woods' multiple martial infidelities.

 

"I wish her the best in everything," said Woods, who is readying to play in The Barclays this week, the first round of the PGA FedEx Cup playoffs. "You know, it's a sad time in our lives. And we're looking forward to -- in our lives and how we can help our kids the best way we possibly can. And that's the most important thing."

 

Woods was asked if he has any regret over what happened during the course of his marriage.

 

"My actions certainly led us to this decision...
