Bowden called up to fill spot in bullpen

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said Sunday that reliever Michael Bowden has been called up and will be ready for action out of the bullpen starting today. To make room, the Red Sox designated catcher Gustavo Molina for assignment, leaving the Red Sox with the standard two catchers, Dusty Brown and Kevin Cash.

 

Bowden came on to pitch a perfect ninth inning in the RedS ox' 4-2 loss to the Rangers, Sunday at Fenway Park, striking out two of the three hitters he faced.

Beckett allows three earned in rehab outing
By: DJ Bean

Josh Beckett, pitching in what both he and the Red Sox hoped would be his final tune-up before rejoining the team, allowed three earned runs in four-plus innings for Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday night. 

 

Beckett threw 81 pitches (manager Terry Francona said Saturday he would be on an 85-pitch pitch count), allowing five hits, walking a batter and striking out three as the PawSox fell in Syracuse. It was the second rehab start for Beckett, who has been on the disabled list since May 19 with a lower back strain. 

 

Francona said Saturday that following the start, both Beckett and the team would determine whether or not a third start in the minors will be necessery.

Youk delivers in the clutch, Sox beat Rangers

Kevin Youkilis doubled home Marco Scutaro from third with two outs against Cliff Lee in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game and drove home Scutaro with the game-winner in the bottom of the 11th with a sacrifice fly to center as the Red Sox beat the Rangers, 3-2, at Fenway Park.  

 

Lee was just one out away from his second complete game in as many starts with his new team before Youkilis lined his hit to left. Scutaro opened both the ninth and 11th by getting on base. He singled to open the ninth and walked to open the 11th. 

 

The Red Sox appeared ready to get to Lee for a big inning in the first when David Ortiz singled home Darnell McDonald. With runners at first and second and one out, Lee got Adrian Beltre to hit into an inning-ending 4-6-3 double play. 

 

John Lackey had one of his better outings in a Red Sox uniform, going seven innings and throwing 115 pitches, allowing seven...

Lowell to begin rehab with PawSox next week

If everything goes according to plan, Mike Lowell will begin a rehab start on Thursday for Triple-A Pawtucket, after getting one more shot in his ailing right hip on Monday, Red Sox manager Terry Francona announced on Saturday. 

 

Lowell has been on the disabled list since June 24 with a strained right hip. Francona said Lowell will likely start out getting his at-bats in as a designated hitter before moving on to the field.
