Sox' Pimentel retires two in Futures Game

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Red Sox prospect Stolmy Pimentel, a minor leaguer currently in High-A Salem, retired a pair of batters for the World team in the sixth inning of the All-Star Futures Game. He mixed a 92-93 mph fastball with a curveball in getting Marlins prospect Logan Morrison on a flyout to deep centerfield (on which Pirates prospect Gorkys Hernandez made a fine catch while crashing into the wall) and then getting Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa to ground out to second.

 

"I was excited to be here," said Pimentel. "I hope to be here again [as a big leaguer]."

 

Pimentel, 20, is 5-7 with a 4.61 ERA for Salem this year. He has struck out 55 and walked 25 in 80 innings.

'Outstanding' Beckett 'electric' in rehab start

PAWTUCKET -- Josh Beckett did not speak about his 68-pitch performance following a rehab start Sunday afternoon at McCoy Stadium for the Triple-A Paw Sox. 

 

But those who did were very impressed with the right-hander, who was making his first start since being placed on the disabled list with a strained lower back. Beckett retired 12 of the the 14 batters he faced, striking out four and walking none.

 

"For the most the most part, he got through the outing healthy, he felt great," Pawtucket manager Torey Lovullo said. "His fastball, to me, was electric and the secondary stuff, in bits and pieces, was there for him. He threw some change-ups when he had to and he threw some quality breaking balls. I thought the outing was outstanding.

 

"The only thing he asked me was, 'How many pitches did I throw?'" Lovullo added.

Spain wins World Cup‏ in extra time

Spain defeats the Netherlands, 1-0, to win World Cup for the first time. Andres Iniesta's goal in extra time won it for Spain. The two sides only created a few clear chances at Soccer City in South Africa, but the game opened up slightly in the second half and extra time. Dutch superstar Arjen Robben broke free in the 62nd minute but his shot attempt was kicked aside by Spainish goalkeeper Iker Casillas' right foot. Netherlands goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg was up to the task as well making a few key saves to keep the Dutch in it.
