Rays bump Red Sox back to .500

 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Red Sox fell back to .500 (44-44) with a 5-3 loss to the Rays, Saturday night at Tropicana Field.

The pivotal inning was the seventh, when Tampa Bay drove Sox starter Clay Buchholz from the game after putting runners on two runners on with the Sox holding a one-run lead. After reliever Matt Albers intentionally walked pinch-hitter Hideki Matsui, the righty proceeded to force in the game-tying run on a walk to Jose Lobaton. It was the Red Sox' American League-leading 10th free pass with the bases loaded this season.

The Rays took the lead for good when Elliott Johnson lofted a deep fly ball to center field, good enough for the go-ahead sacrifice fly. The hosts would add an insurance run in the eighth inning when B.J. Upton took Andrew Miller deep for a solo shot. It was the first homer allowed by Miller since May 23.

The Red Sox had claimed a lead in the sixth inning when Rays starter David Price's attempt at...

Sox option Gomez to clear Buchholz spot

ST. PETERSBURG -- With starter Clay Buchholz making his return from the disabled list, corner infielder Mauro Gomez is being optioned back to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Gomez was called up on July 4 to give the Red Sox a right-handed bat with Will Middlebrooks unavailable due to a hamstring injury. Gomez ended up making six starts (five at third base), hitting .333/.360/.458/.818 with three doubles.

Buchholz is 8-2 with a 5.53 ERA on the year, though he'd been excellent in his five starts before landing on the DL with esophagitis, going 4-0 with a 2.43 ERA, 31 strikeouts and seven walks in 37 innings.

Gonzalez: Back 'a two- to three-day thing'

ST. PETERSBURG -- Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, out of the lineup for a second straight day after being a late scratch prior to the start of Friday's game due to back spasms, said that his lower back is "a little bit better," but that he was not yet ready to play. In hopes of keeping his absence brief, the team and player felt it made sense to have him sit out at least on Saturday.

"I need to take it easy," said Gonzalez. "My back just locked up yesterday. Trying to move around in BP, it was just getting worse.

"I feel better right now," he added. "They just don’t want me to go out there, aggravate it and make it worse. Better to be a two- to three-day type thing than a DL thing."

Gonzalez stepped into the on-deck circle in the late innings of Friday's game as if to pinch hit, but he said that he was no more than a decoy in that situation. The first baseman actually told Sox manager...

Gonzalez out, Lillibridge at first

ST. PETERSBURG -- Adrian Gonzalez, who was a late scratch from Friday's game with back spasms, is once again out of the lineup on Saturday against the Rays and All-Star left-hander David Price. The Sox will instead feature Brent Lillibridge at first base and batting eighth.

Clay Buchholz will be back on the mound for the Red Sox after missing the last three weeks due to esophagitis, throwing to catcher Kelly Shoppach.

C's officially re-sign Garnett, Bass, Wilcox

WALTHAM -- While the Celtics aim for resolution of new contracts for Jeff Green and Jason Terry, they did officially welcome back Kevin Garnett, Brandon Bass and Chris Wilcox on Saturday.

Garnett's deal is for three years and $34 million, while Bass is back for three years and $20 million. Wilcox signed a one-year deal, believed to be for the league minimum. Those three are expected to form the backbone of the Celtics' frontcourt.

"That was a priority for us this summer, to get KG back," team president Danny Ainge said. "That was a great relief to get him back. He’s such a big part of who we are and going forward we think he has a lot of basketball left in him." 

Garnett was not in Waltham on Saturday, but Bass and Wilcox both expressed relief at being back with the team.

"I knew where I wanted to be," Bass said. "That was back in a green jersey."

Wilcox had emerged as the...
