Bill Lee picks up the win for Rox

Pitching for the Brockton Rox of the independent Cam-Am League, 63-year-old Bill Lee allowed just two runs over 5 2/3 innings against the Worcester Tornadoes in the teams' regular-season finale, Sunday afternoon, earning the win in the process. Lee -- who also went 0-for-3 at the plate -- allowed five hits, striking out one and not walking a batter. The lefty, whose last appearance in the major leagues came in 1982, left the game with the Rox holding a 5-2 lead. Brockton finished with a 7-3 victory over Worcester, which called upon former Red Sox first-round pick Rick Asadoorian to pitch a scoreless eighth.

Scutaro to get MRI on shoulder

Marco Scutaro will get an MRI on his ailing right shoulder on Tuesday and not play until then, Red Sox manager Terry Francona announced Sunday morning. 

 

Francona said Sunday he noticed Saturday night in Game 2 of the day-night doubleheader that it was bothering him again.

 

“Saw it on his swing in his second at-bat,” Francona said. He’s been feeling it for about a month. We’ll get him an MRI on Tuesday to make sure of where he is. We know he’s playing through a lot [of pain]. How much we don’t know but we’ll get him looked at on Tuesday.”

 

Scutaro was called into the manager's office to sit down with Francona and general manager Theo Epstein to discuss his situation. For more, visit the Red Sox page at WEEI.com/redsox.

Double dip: Fading Red Sox swept

Carlos Quentin doubled, tripled and scored twice in support of starter Gavin Floyd, who allowed just one run over six innings, as the White Sox completed a day-night doubleheader sweep of the quickly-fading Red Sox, 3-1, on Saturday night at Fenway Park. 

 

The struggling bats of the Red Sox continue to thwart any chance of a September rally into playoff contention as they managed just two runs and 13 hits in a pair of 3-1 losses that dropped them to 76-60 and 10 games behind the Yankees in the American League East. The Red Sox have lost five-of-eight.

 

John Lackey was again a tough-luck loser, done in by some shoddy defense behind him. He allowed three runs but only one earned, over seven innings. Lackey [12-9] yielded just four hits, while walking two, striking out seven and hitting a batter. 

 

The Red Sox will try to avoid the three-game sweep when they send Josh Beckett to the mound Sunday...
