Tito: 'Logic says' Doubront done for 2010

On the same day Felix Doubront was honored as the 2010 Red Sox minor league pitcher of the year, manager Terry Francona said the 22-year-old with a minor upper pectoral muscle injury likely won't pitch again for the team this season. 

 

"He will be re-evaluated on Monday," Francona announced Saturday. "I think logic kind of says that this kid’s probably not going to pitch again. We’re getting to that point."

 

Doubront, who was checked out by Red Sox medical staff on Friday, hasn't pitched since being sent home from Baltimore after giving up two home runs in a 5-2 loss to the Orioles on Aug. 31.

 

"I do think what we’d like to do is get him ramped up so when we send him off after the season we have a feeling that...

Michigan holds off UMass

The University of Massachusetts gave Michigan a scare Saturday, but the 20th-ranked Wolverines escaped with a 42-37 win. UMass jumped out to a 17-7 first-half lead, but Michigan scored two touchdowns just before the half and ran off 28 straight points to take a 35-17 advantage. The Minutemen rallied to within five with just over two minutes remaining, but couldn't come up with an onside kick. 

 

UMass quarterback Kyle Havens threw for 222 yards and two touchdowns and Jonathan Hernandez rushed for 114 yards as the Minutemen gained over 400 yards of total offense. Michigan's Denard Robinson ran for 104 yards and passed for 241 more.

 

The game was played on a somber note as the school announced that music professor and band director George N. Parks ...

Fading fast: Sox overpowered by Jays

Yunel Escobar had four hits and Jose Bautista set a new Toronto record with his major league-leading 48th homer as the Blue Jays overpowered the Red Sox, 11-9, Friday night at Fenway Park.

 

Victor Martinez led the offensive charge for the Red Sox, homering twice and driving in five. Martinez, representing the tying run in the ninth, popped out to shortstop to end the game. The loss was costly as Alex Rodriguez homered twice for the Yankees, including the game-winner in the ninth and drove in all four runs as the Yankees came from behind to beat Baltimore, 4-3. With 15 games left, the Red Sox now trail New York by seven games in the division and Tampa Bay by 6 1/2 in the wild card race. 

 

John Lackey lost his fourth straight decision, lasting only 4 1/3 innings, allowing eight hits and seven runs - six earned - while hitting three batters. It was his second shortest outing of the season, as he lasted just 3 1/3 innings...
