Sox hammer Halladay, beat Phils

Tim Wakefield delivered eight shutout innings against the team with the best record in the National League, leading the Red Sox past the Phillies, 8-3. In the process, the Sox beat former AL East nemesis Roy Halladay to take a series victory in Philadelphia. 

 

Wakefield had just one strikeout, but the Phillies consistently made weak contact against the pitcher as he earned his first victory since last year's All-Star break. The knuckleballer recorded 16 flyball outs to earn the 190th victory of his career, and the 176th of his Sox career. 

 

The Sox pounded Halladay for seven runs, the most the right-hander has permitted as a member of the Phillies. The offense was led by Kevin Youkilis, who had a homer, triple and walk in his three plate appearances against Halladay, improving his career line to .375/.446/.661/1.107 against the former Jays ace. Halladay took the loss, and now owns a 14-15 record against the Sox,...

Allen: 'We deserve all the credit'

WALTHAM -- The Celtics are one game away from eliminating the Magic and advancing to the NBA Finals, and they believe credit should be given where credit is due.

“I believe we deserve all the credit,” Ray Allen said following practice on Sunday. “It’s only two teams playing. We’re putting them in the situation that they’re in, and we’re adjusting and trying to find the ways that we can confuse them as much as we can, and make it tough defensively on them and offensively. They’re not going out there and doing it to themselves.”

The Celtics are not paying attention to the downtrodden morale of their opponent, either.

“None of my concern,” said Kevin Garnett. “That’s them. That’s how they think. Nothing more, nothing less than that. I can’t really be worried with what they’re thinking over there and how they’re playing or...

Scutaro: 'They call me Hanley Scutaro now'

Talking to reporters after the Red Sox' 5-0 win over the Phillies, shortstop Marco Scutaro lamented about not being able to reach Juan Castro's bloop into shallow left field, which broke up Daisuke Matsuzaka's no-hitter with two outs in the eighth inning.

 

"They call me 'Hanley Scutaro' now," quipped Scutaro, whose out-stretched glove just couldn't reach the Castro blooper. "What do you want me to say? If I was six-feet, I'd probably get it. I'm [Dustin] Pedroia's size, so ..."

 

Asked if he thought he had a shot when Castro hit it, Sctuaro said, "Yeah, I did. What can I say? I know all the country of Japan is hating me right now. Sorry, sorry. My bad, my bad ... I was pretty sure I would catch everything close but I couldn't catch that one. Sorry."

 

For more reaction from both clubhouses on Matsuzaka's no-hit bid...
