Sox double up Diamondbacks

The Red Sox offense jumped on Diamondbacks starter Ian Kennedy, crossing the plate five times in the first three innings en route to a tidy 6-3 victory at Fenway Park. David Ortiz crushed his 13th homer of the year, a two-run shot, to set the offense in motion, and the Sox added on with three more runs on a night when Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-3 with three runs scored.

 

Sox starter Clay Buchholz (9-4) was the beneficiary of the offensive support, claiming his ninth win on a night when he struck out eight and allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings. The Sox bullpen tossed 3 1/3 shutout innings to close out the win.

Sox first rounder Vitek set to sign

Red Sox first round pick Kolbrin Vitek passed his physical on Tuesday, and now only has to sign his contract for it to become official, likely on Wednesday. Vitek, 21, was taken by the Sox in the first round (No. 20 overall) of last week's amateur draft. The junior out of Ball State hit .371 with 17 homers and 16 steals.

 

Though Vitek played second base this year for Ball State, in large part to preserve his arm (he was also the team's Sunday pitcher), he will play third base and serve as designated hitter for the Lowell Spinners of the New York-Penn League. Vitek agreed to sign for Major League Baseball's recommended slot bonus, close to the $1.359 million bonus for which last year's No. 20 overall pick signed.

The Red Sox issued the following announcement about street closures around Fenway Park on Tuesday, June 15:

 

According to information provided by the Boston Transportation Department, there will be various street closures in the Fenway neighborhood and surrounding areas Tuesday, June 15, 2010.

 

Brookline Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic from the Landmark Center to Kenmore Square beginning at the end of the third quarter of tonight’s Celtics game. The area around Fenway Park has been posted with no parking/tow zone signs. Starting at 7:30 p.m. tonight, the Boston Transportation Department will begin towing vehicles parked on Ipswich Street, from Boylston Street to Charlesgate, and on Brookline Avenue, from Park Drive to Kenmore Square.

 

This will also be the case on Thursday if there is another playoff game that evening. The Red Sox urge fans to use public transportation if at all...

Doubront likely to start for Sox Friday

According to sources familiar with the situation, left-hander Felix Doubront is likely to make his major league debut on Friday, getting a start for the Red Sox in place of Daisuke Matsuzaka, who is on the 15-day disabled list with a forearm strain. While that decision is not final, all signs point to the 22-year-old getting the call-up from Triple-A Pawtucket.

 

Doubront is 2-1 with a 1.08 ERA in four starts in Triple-A following his promotion from Double-A Portland, where he was 4-0 with a 2.51 ERA. Between the two levels, he has punched out 54 and walked 22 in 59 2/3 innings. The PawSox activated him from the seven-day disabled list on Tuesday, after a stint on the sidelines due to what was described as a shin contusion.
