Beckett, Red Sox roughed up by Yanks

NEW YORK -- Josh Beckett surrendered seven runs on 11 hits over just 4 2/3 innings -- including five in the fifth inning -- paving the way for a 7-2 victory for the Yankees over the Red Sox, Sunday night at Yankee Stadium. With the loss, the Sox fall seven games in back of the first-place Yanks, while remaining 4 1/2 behind Tampa Bay in the Wild Card race. With the Rays dropping their fifth straight, and the Sox losing their second in a row to the Yankees, Minnesota draws even with the Red Sox in the Wild Card standings.

 

In four outings against the Yankees this season, Beckett has now allowed 24 earned runs in 19 1/3 innings (11.25 ERA), having given up at least five runs in each of the appearances while not lasting more than 5 1/3 innings.

 

The Red Sox managed just two runs on six hits against substitute Yankees starter Dustin Moseley, who was replacing schedule starter A.J. Burnett due to the righty's back injury. The...

Pedroia eyes homestand for return

NEW YORK -- Speaking prior to the Red Sox game at Yankee Stadium Sunday night, Dustin Pedroia said he was extremely encouraged by his progress after running for a third straight day -- this time running the bases -- and hopes that he can make his return to the Red Sox' lineup when the team returns home Aug. 17. Pedroia, who has now been out of action for more than six weeks after breaking his foot, will take Monday off before attempting to continue his running program Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

 

"I hit, then I ran around the bases a couple of times. Jogged around the bases. I felt OK. Every day, it's getting better," said Pedroia, who still doesn't know if he is going to have to participate in a rehab assignment. "Three days ago, I thought I was out for the year. Now I feel like I can play soon. Every day's getting better."

Burnett scratched from Sunday's start

Yankees starter A.J. Burnett has been scratched from Sunday's start against the Red Sox due to back spasms. In his place, Dustin Moseley, who was originally slated to go on Monday, will get the ball. 

 

The news of Burnett's scratch isn't entirely beneficial for the Red Sox, as Burnett is 0-1 with a 10.61 earned run average in his two starts against Boston this year. Additionally, with Moseley being moved up a day, so to will be Philip Hughes, who will now face the Red Sox Monday. 

 

The Red Sox and Yankees have...

RJ's daughter recovering from accident
By: DJ Bean

Bridget Johnson, the 10-year-old daughter of Red Sox first base coach Ron Johnson, is currently recovering from a near-death experience last Sunday. Bridget's leg was severed when she was hit by a car while horseback riding in the family's home town of Nashville, Tenn. She remained in intensive care for five days before being moved into a private room at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital, where the family has stayed.

 

Though the knee was severed at the knee immediately, a local came to Bridget's aid and saved her from bleeding out. The leg was stitched back to her body and doctors are awaiting whether her body can handle it. According to NewsChannel 5 in Tennessee, to whom Johnson spoke of the horrific accident, doctors did detect a pulse following the re-attachment but are unsure of whether or not it will adhere to the body.

 

The 54-year-old Johnson, who...
