Ghana eliminates U.S. from World Cup

The United States saw its run at the World Cup come to a close on Saturday, losing 2-1 to Ghana in a round of 16 contest that was extended into extra time.


Ghana's Asamoah Gyan scored the game-winner 93 minutes into the battle, blasting a left-footed shot past U.S. goaltender Tim Howard. The U.S. was unable to score after the Gyan strike, despite several strong pressures into Ghana territory.


Ghana jumped ahead quickly in the contest, as Kevin Prince Boateng stole the ball from Ricardo Clark and connected on a 45-foot shot to take a 1-0 lead just five minutes into the game. Landon Donovan, however, tied the game in the 62nd minute, scoring on a penalty kick following a takedown of Clint Dempsey by Jonathan Mensah. This was Donavan's 12th World Cup appearance, a record for a United States player.


Ghana will play Uruguay in a quarterfinal contest on Friday.

Pedroia to DL with fracture in foot

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has been placed on the disabled list with a non-displaced fracture of the navicular bone of his left foot. 


Angel Sanchez was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket and the infielder will take Pedroia's spot on the roster.


Pedroia left Friday night's game after fouling a ball off his left foot in the third inning. A CT scan and MRI taken on Saturday revealed the fracture. The severity of the fracture is not known and neither Sox manager Terry Francona nor Pedroia had a timetable for his return.


"I could feel fine in two weeks and then play. Or maybe I can’t walk until six weeks," said Pedroia. "They don’t know." (To hear what Pedroia had to say about the injury, click here.)


The injury comes in the midst of a...

Lineups: Hall at second; Pedroia, Drew sit

With Dustin Pedroia sidelined one day after slamming a foul ball off of his left foot, Bill Hall will bat seventh for the Red Sox and play second base. J.D. Drew, who was scheduled to return to the lineup for the first time in seven games, is also out after experiencing some hamstring tightness during Friday night's game. Drew will be replaced in the lineup by Darnell McDonald, who will bat second and play right. In the absence of a designated hitter, David Ortiz will once again sit, with Adrian Beltre and Kevin Youkilis manning the corners.

Sox to add Angel Sanchez to roster

Angel Sanchez has joined the Red Sox from Triple-A Pawtucket, and will be added to the major league roster prior to the start of Saturday's game against the Giants. Sanchez became a necessary addition when Dustin Pedroia fouled a ball off the instep of his left foot on Friday. Pedroia left the ballpark on Friday on crutches, and with his foot immobilized by a boot.


Sanchez, 26, is hitting .274 with a .348 OBP, .327 slugging mark and .675 OPS with Pawtucket, for whom he has played in 62 games, but just five at second base. He went 0-for-3 in one big league game this season in place of Marco Scutaro at shortstop.


The Red Sox have yet to announce a corresponding roster move to create a spot for Sanchez.
