Cabrera to be designated for assignment

For the second straight season reliever Fernando Cabrera will be designated for assignment by the Red Sox, this time the move comes after the right-handed pitcher allowed three runs on two hits in 1 1/3 innings. Cabrera, who was promoted from Triple A Pawtucket, allowed a fifth-inning grand slam to Texas' Bengie Molina, breaking open a 3-3 tie and leading the Rangers to an 8-4 win over the Red Sox. The 28-year-old Cabrera, who had pitched in six games with the Sox in 2009, cleared waivers after being designated last year, ultimately choosing to rejoin the Red Sox. Cabrera was 0-3 with 13 saves and a 3.50 ERA in 30 appearances for the Pawtucket Red Sox before being promoted. 

 

The move will likely pave the way for the activation of reliever Manny Delcarmen, who was deemed ready to come off the 15-day disabled list earlier Friday by Red Sox manager Terry Francona. Francona said after the loss that could be multiple moves announced Saturday...

Bengie Molina, Rangers cycle past Red Sox

Bengie Molina became one of the most unlikely players in major league history to hit for the cycle on Friday night as the slow catcher connected for a grand slam and tripled in the eighth to cap off the feat in an 8-4 Rangers victory over the Red Sox Friday night at Fenway Park. 

 

Molina became the first MLB catcher since 2004 to hit for the cycle and the first opponent in 32 years to do it at Fenway Park. Cleveland's Andre Thornton was the last to turn the trick on April 22, 1978. 

 

Felix Doubront started and went 4 2/3 innings but couldn't get the final out of the fifth inning and gave way to Fernando Cabrera, who walked in the tying run in the fifth and then gave up the decisive grand slam to Molina. The game was delayed exactly one hour after the third inning by rain.

Buchholz allows two runs in rehab outing

Pitching in his first (and presumably final) rehab outing after going on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring injury, Clay Buchholz allowed two runs on four hits over 3 2/3 innings while pitching for the Triple A Pawtucket Red Sox against the SkyChiefs in Syracuse. Buchholz finished his outing striking out two and walking one while throwing 60 pitches (33 strikes).

 

Also participating in a rehab outing for the PawSox was infielder Jed Lowrie, who hit a home run in his first at-bat on the way to managing three hits in his first three plate appearances. Lowrie, who was playing third base while appearing in his eighth minor league rehab appearance, is now 10-for-22 since returning from a bout with mononucleosis. 

 

Outfielder Jeremy Hermida went 0-for-4 with an RBI for Double A Portland his comeback from a rib injury.

Red Sox/Rangers in rain delay

The Red Sox and Rangers are in a rain delay, with the game tied at 2-2 after three innings. The game was halted just prior to starting the third inning. Texas had jumped out to a 2-0 lead after the first inning, scoring a pair on two hits off of Red Sox starter Felix Doubront. The Sox responded in the second inning when Kevin Youkilis led off with a double, was plated by a J.D. Drew single, ultimately leading to Drew tying the game by coming in on a Colby Lewis wild pitch.

Second round of British Open suspended
By: DJ Bean

Mother nature got in the way of the British Open in more than one way on Friday. First, the second round saw a one-hour and five-minute delay due to winds of 41 miles per hour. The day later concluded early on account of darkness.

 

South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen, who had actually missed the cut in all but one of his last eight major championship appearances, remained the surprise leader when play was halted, shot a five-under 67 and is atop the leaderboard with a 12-under 132. Mark Calcavecchia trails him at seven-under, with Paul Casey, Lee Westwood, and Steven Tiley tied for third at six-under.
