Buchholz blanks Baltimore

BALTIMORE -- Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz threw his second career complete-game shutout, needing just 101 pitches to go the distance in the Red Sox' 11-0 victory over the Orioles. Buchholz attacked the Orioles, allowing just five hits and one walk. His other career shutout -- a no-hitter on Sept. 1, 2007 -- was also against the Orioles.

 

The Red Sox received all the offense they would need in the first inning against O's starter Chris Tillman, chiefly on a two-out, two-run double from J.D. Drew. But the team kept adding on, with Kevin Youkilis (11), Adrian Beltre (7) and Marco Scutaro (4) all homering on the night.

Brady talks about 'disconnect' report
By: DJ Bean

ALLSTON -- Amidst the stir caused by a recent report that the Patriots and Tom Brady are growing apart in contract negotiations, the free-agent-to-be spoke Friday night about his contract situation at a Best Buddies celebrity football game. 

 

"I don't want to talk about it a whole lot because really there's nothing anybody can solve other than the team and myself," Brady said. "There's a lot of guys in my situation, so really I just want to focus on what's coming up this week. I'm just excited about being on the field with the guys. Things happen. Some are out of your control so you've just got to go with the flow."

'Significant improvement' for Cameron

BALTIMORE -- Red Sox manager Terry Francona said that outfielder Mike Cameron arrived at the ballpark and felt "significant improvement" in his recovery from deep inflammation in the left side of his abdomen. Francona did not rule out the possibility that Cameron might be used as a pinch-hitter, but suggested that such an outcome was unlikely.

 

"We'll see. That would be great [if Cameron is available]," said Francona. "That might be a rush. If you see that happening, he would have to feel really good."

 

Cameron, who was scheduled to take batting practice before Friday's game, has been out since Sunday due to the discomfort in his abdomen. Cameron, 37, is hitting .277/.370/.383/.753 in 16 games.

Francona: O's not a 'real good fit' in '03

BALTIMORE -- In light of the firing of Orioles manager Dave Trembley, Red Sox manager Terry Francona was asked to reflect on his interview with the Orioles in October 2003, shortly before he interviewed with the Red Sox.

 

"I appreciated them talking to me," said Francona. "I didn’t know that it was a real good fit. Obviously, they didn’t think so either. That’s nothing against the Orioles organization."

 

Instead, Francona suggested, that sentiment was a reflection of his desire to manage a contender rather than a club that was in the process of rebuilding. Francona had spent four seasons as the manager of the Phillies from 1997-2000 before being fired, a job that took a toll on him. So, when he interviewed for managerial openings after the 2003 season (which he spent as the bench coach for the Oakland A's), he was looking for an opportunity to manage a club with playoff...

Hermida leaves after collision with Beltre

Red Sox outfielder Jeremy Hermida left Friday's game after the top of the fifth inning, shortly after a collision with teammate Adrian Beltre.

 

The collision occurred with two outs in the bottom of the third inning, when Nick Markakis lifted a pop up down the left field line in foul territory. Third baseman Beltre and left fielder Hermida both raced to the ball, converging upon it at nearly the same time. As Beltre made a stunning over-the-shoulder catch, his knee slammed into the sliding Hermida's left arm and shoulder in a startling echo of Beltre's collision with left fielder Jacoby Ellsbury on April 11, when Beltre's knee plowed into the chest of the left fielder.

 

Red Sox trainers were seen in the dugout taking a look at Hermida's left arm. He was diagnosed with a left forearm contusion, and is day to day.
