Papelbon: 'This game's on me'

A stand-up Jonathan Papelbon took full responsibility for his first blown save in 26 chances Tuesday night as the Red Sox watched a 5-4 lead in the eighth disappear when he allowed a two-out bases-clearing double to Robert Andino, leading to a 7-5 loss to the Orioles at Fenway Park. 

"I'm called on," Papelbon said. "And whenever I'm called on, I've got to go out there and do my job. Tonight for me boiled down to execution, and I've got to be able to put guys away on 0-2. For me, this game's on me. We were put in a situation where the team needed me and I didn't come through."

Before the Andino at-bat, Papelbon entered in relief of Daniel Bard who -- after pitching a perfect seventh -- gave up consecutive one-out singles in the eighth. Papelbon struck out Chris Davis and had Nolan Reimold down two strikes. Reimold laced the next pitch to left to load the bases, setting the stage for Andino's clutch hit on a full count....

Blown chance: Pap blows save, Sox lose

Robert Andino drilled a three-run double down the right field line against closer Jonathan Papelbon as the Red Sox fell 7-5 to the Orioles, blowing a golden opportunity to distance themselves from the Rays in the AL wild card race. The loss was made all the more painful as the Rays lost to the Yankees in New York. As a result, the Red Sox still lead the Rays by two games, just one in the loss column. 

After reportedly being served with child support papers just hours before his start, Erik Bedard took the mound for the Red Sox for the first time in 17 days. He pitched effectively in the first two innings, holding the Orioles scoreless. But in the third, he was forced to throw 51 of his 76 pitches thanks to Josh Reddick's misplay of a Vladimir Guerrero liner to right with two outs. Bedard, coming back from a sore left knee, had given up just one run when Reddick's drop opened the door for three more runs and a 4-1 Orioles lead.

Report: Bedard served papers before start

Erik Bedard was served with papers from Massachusetts Probate and Family Court in a child support case at Fenway Park hours before he made his start against the Orioles on Tuesday night, according to a report in the New York Post. The papers were served on behalf of Bedard's ex-girlfriend who said that she didn't have his address.

Bedard worked just 2 2/3 innings on Tuesday in his first appearance since Sept. 3.

Sources: Hernandez will be out 2-4 weeks

Sources now indicate that the Patriots will lose tight end Aaron Hernandez for two to four weeks because of a left knee injury he suffered in Sunday’s win over the Chargers. Hernandez, who is third on the team with 14 catches for 165 yards and two touchdowns on two games, has combined with fellow tight end Rob Gronkowski to form a dynamic portion of the New England passing game. The news that Hernandez would miss time was first reported by Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe. For more on the Patriots, check out weei.com/patriots.

Tito on Schilling: 'I don't give a [expletive]'

Prior to Tuesday night's game against the Orioles, Red Sox manager Terry Francona was asked about former Sox pitcher Curt Schilling's suggestion on WEEI that he expected the Red Sox to miss the playoffs. Francona said that he had not heard the comments, but that he had little reaction to them.

"I don’t give a [expletive]. I didn’t even know what the hell you were talking about," Francona shrugged after being told of the retired pitcher's comments.

Francona similarly had little to say about David Ortiz' suggestion that the Sox should move Alfredo Aceves to the rotation.

"Believe it or not, I haven’t read a paper," said Francona. "There’s so many [media members] here that if you ask questions and someone gives an answer, I’ll be answering them all day. For Schill...
