Report: U.S.-Slovenia ref may be banned

According to a Yahoo! Sports report, World Cup referee Koman Coulibaly, whose unexplained call took away the United States' go-ahead goal in the final minutes of Friday's game vs. Slovenia, will face an expedited review and could be excluded from the rest of the World Cup.

 

The story credits a FIFA source as saying Coulibaly's performance will be reviewed Saturday following a game in which replays showed he had some crucial missed calls and failed to control rough play.

 

“If he is found to have made a serious mistake, especially one that affected the outcome, then he would be highly unlikely to play any further part in the tournament,” said the source, who is close to senior figures on the refereeing panel. “FIFA is determined to keep refereeing standards high and does not want high-profile mistakes.”

Red Sox get better of Manny, Dodgers

The Red Sox came away from the much-anticipated return of Manny Ramirez to Fenway Park with the upper-hand, claiming a 10-6 victory over the slugger and his Los Angeles Dodgers Friday night. While Ramirez did notch a hit and a run, it was the Sox' offense which carried the night, pounding out 13 runs, including home runs from David Ortiz, J.D. Drew, and Adrian Beltre. Rookie pitcher Felix Doubront, pitching in his first major league game, performed admirably in the Sox win, allowing five runs and six hits over five innings, throwing 83 pitches. Ramirez night began with a first-pitch line-out to center field, which came immediately after a mixed -- and extremely boisterous -- welcome from the Fenway crowd. Ramirez followed with a line-out to right field, single, and strikeout before ending the game by striking out on a Daniel Bard slider.

 

Adding to the night's festivities was the presence of Roger Clemens, who sat for much of the game in the...

Drew leaves game with hamstring strain

Red Sox outfielder J.D. Drew left Friday night's game against the Dodgers after making a running catch of a sinking line drive off the bat of Manny Ramirez to end the top of the third inning. The Red Sox said that Drew left the game due to a right hamstring strain.

 

Drew stepped to the plate once on Friday, lining a solo homer (his eighth of the season) just over the Green Monster in the bottom of the first. Including Friday, he has played in 65 of his team's 69 games this year.

 

Drew was replaced in the lineup by outfielder Darnell McDonald.
