Aceves expected to be available Wednesday

BALTIMORE -- Alfredo Aceves said after allowing one run over 3 2/3 innings, and throwing 36 pitches (27 strikes), in the Red Sox' 8-7 win over the Orioles Tuesday night, that he hopes to be available for the regular season finale Wednesday.

"You guys know me," said the righty, insinuating he would be ready despite having pitched three straight days. "You guys need to ask Terry Francona."

What Aceves didn't realize was that the Red Sox manager had already surmised that, because of the reliever's ability to bounce back on short rest, the hurler would be ready to go Wednesday.

"He has done it time and time again. He's so valuable doing what he's doing," Francona said. "We thought about leaving him in, letting him run it out. But I think because he's so resilient, I think we'll have him. In fact, I know we'll have him tomorrow. Chances are, we'll probably need him."

The outing marked the 13th time...

Lavarnway helps Sox keep pace with Rays

BALTIMORE -- Making his first major league start at catcher, Ryan Lavarnway belted a pair of home runs in leading the Red Sox to a pivotal 8-7 win over the Orioles Tuesday night at Camden Yards. The victory helped the Sox keep pace with the Rays in the American League wild card standings, with Tampa Bay beating the Yankees, 5-3, in St. Petersburg, Fla.

The Red Sox and Rays now head into the their final games of the regular season, Wednesday, sharing identical 90-71 records. Jon Lester will face off against Orioles starter Alfredo Simon in the series finale, while Tampa Bay sends David Price to the mound against Freddy Garcia of the Yankees.

Besides Lavarnway -- who hit a three-run homer in the fourth inning and a solo shot in the eighth -- the Red Sox also got home runs from Jacoby Ellsbury and Marco Scutaro. 

Earning the win for the Sox was reliever Alfredo Aceves, who came on for starter Erik Bedard and allowed just one run on three...

Report: Pats bring back DL Gerard Warren

In an effort to shore up the depth along their defensive line, the Patriots are bringing back veteran defensive lineman Gerard Warren, according to a report in The Boston Globe. 

Warren was a surprising cut at the end of training camp, but there was much speculation that the team would eventually bring him back at some part of the season. With Albert Haynesworth's availability unknown for this week due to a bad back and a long cross-country flight ahead for the team on Friday, the Patriots have apparently decided that the time is now. 

Haynesworth missed Sunday's game in Buffalo with a back injury while Warren has been waiting on a call. Warren, 33, is a 11-year NFL veteran who played in all 16 games with the Patriots in 2010, his first season in New England. Before last year, he spent three years in Oakland, two in Denver and four in Cleveland. 

Warren, 6-foot-4 and 330 pounds, began the 2010 season as a starter at defensive...

Time set for potential Sox-Rays play-in

BALTIMORE -- If a play-in game is needed to determine whether the Red Sox or Rays will advance to the playoffs, the contest would be played on Thursday afternoon with a 4:07 p.m. starting time in Tampa Bay. The winner of the game, in turn, would play an early ALDS game on Friday afternoon against either the Rangers or Tigers (whichever team finishes with the better regular-season record) at 5:07 p.m.

Patriots release DL Landon Cohen

The Patriots released defensive lineman Landon Cohen on Tuesday. Cohen, 6-foot-3 and 300 pounds, went to training camp with the Patriots this past summer but was released on Sept. 3 before being re-signed on Sept. 21. He played in a reserve role last Sunday at Buffalo. Cohen was originally signed by the Patriots on December 22, 2010 and played in two games with one start, finishing with four tackles. He is a veteran of three NFL seasons after spending time with the Detroit Lions (2008-09), Jacksonville Jaguars (2010) and Patriots (2010). Cohen entered the NFL as a seventh-round draft pick by Detroit in 2008 NFL of Ohio. For more Patriots news, check out weei.com/patriots.
