Lackey, Red Sox fall to Blue Jays
By: DJ Bean

TORONTO -- John Lackey was sub-par in the second game of the Red Sox' series with the Blue Jays on Saturday, failing to escape the fifth inning and taking the loss in a 9-5 defeat. Though the game's early innings featured offense that suggested a potential continuation of Friday's 14-run showing, the Red Sox were unable to keep up with the Toronto bullpen. The Sox have now lost their last five games not started by Jon Lester. 

 

Lackey gave up eight hits and walked six batters in 4 2/3 innings. His WHIP raised to 1.35, which is currently fifth-highest on the AL. Alex Gonzalez homered in the fourth and Bautista belted his major league-leading 24th homer in the bottom of the eighth. For the complete recap, see Closing Time

Ellsbury gives timeline for injuries, treatment

TORONTO -- Sitting in the visitors dugout at Rogers Centre prior to the Red Sox' game with the Blue Jays Saturday afternoon, Jacoby Ellsbury went through the timeline of both his rib injuries and the treatment he received while referencing notes written on sheets of paper. Of note was Ellsbury making it clear that his dive in Philadelphia, which had originally been identified as the cause for his latest injury, wasn't the cause for the broken rib that led to his recent rehab in Arizona. Some of the major points of the briefing (which went 10 minutes, 30 second before a question was asked) were:

 

- Ellsbury said that injury suffered in a collision with third baseman Adrian Beltre in Kansas City -- later diagnosed as four broken ribs -- was described to him as a bruise, and when the outfielder asked for an MRI he was told that the team didn't give MRIs for bruises.

 

- Six days after the injury he was prescribed Vicodin,...

Huge crowd for Bruins D-camp finale

WILMINGTON -- A record crowd turned out at Ristuccia Arena for the final day of the Bruins development camp on Saturday.

 

A crowd estimated at over 1,200 filled the entire seating section to see top pick Tyler Seguin, along with other prospects Joe Colborne and Yuri Alexandrov, as they ran through drills and finished with an intrasquad scrimmage. Two extra sections, normally reserved for Bruins staff and media, were opened to accommodate the overflow crowd that stretched out the door of the Wilmington practice facility. 

 

"We had to let them into our little private area," Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said with a proud smile. "It was great. They liked the show that was put on. They see the obvious skill out there and the depth of the guys. It's great."

Red Sox notes: Francona 'got lucky'
By: DJ Bean

TORONTO -- Speaking with reporters before Saturday's 1:07 p.m. start with the Blue Jays, Terry Francona touched on being a 900-game-winner as a manager and the improved status of Mike Cameron, who went 2-for-3 on Friday with a homer and three RBI.

 

Francona admitted he's never been the type to get caught up in personal accomplishment, saying he doesn't "think it's appropriate." In coming to a team that seemed to be on the cusp when he joined them in the winter of 2003, Francona remains very thankful for the opportunity.

 

"I got lucky as hell, I know that," Francona said. "I came into a job that was a great organization with great players and I caught a break. I know that and feel very fortunate."

 

As for Cameron, he is in the starting lineup for the third game in a row. The Red Sox had left him in the game Friday despite pulling others earlier because Francona wanted...
