Lowrie (shoulder) likely to miss Sunday
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said after Saturday's 12-7 win over the Rangers that shortstop Jed Lowrie, who left the game in the fourth inning with left shoulder tightness, is unlikely to be in Sunday's starting lineup. Francona did note that though Lowrie had to come out of Saturday's game, the shoulder issue is not serious, and that the team was just being careful with the infielder. 

"Jed [was] just stiff, I think probably from a little bit of fatigue," Francona said. "He's played a lot. ... I don't think he'll play tomorrow, [but] he'll certainly be available. So we're OK there. That might be me overreacting a little bit. I just don't want to lose guys."

Francona added that outfielder Josh Reddick, who went 4-for-4 but left the game after getting hit by a pitch in the eighth inning, had X-rays taken, which came out negative. Though he did not specifially say how that might impact Reddick's status...

Just grand: Crawford, Sox slam Rangers
By: DJ Bean

Carl Crawford hit his first grand slam in a Red Sox uniform Saturday as part of an eight-run fourth inning that propelled the Sox past the Rangers in a 12-7 victory.

Crawford wasn't the only outfielder to turn in a standout performance Saturday. Right fielder Josh Reddick went 4-for-4 in the win, which kept the Sox half a game behind the Yankees with New York's victory over Toronto Saturday. 

Erik Bedard allowed five hits and three earned runs over six innings, walking four and striking out six in the process on 101 pitches. He was helped by a pair of inning-ending unassisted double plays from first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, both of which came with a runner on third. He finished his outing strong, as four of his strikouts came over a pair of scoreless innings following Boston's big fourth inning. With the win, Bedard's record improved to 5-9.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia also had a big day for the Sox, as he belted his 14th homer of the ...

Brandt Snedeker had a hole-in-one on the 16th hole, part of his 7-under 64 on Saturday. He sits in solo fourth at 9-under. Greg Chalmers also had a hole-in-one on the 16th hole. He shot a 6-under par 65 and is 5-under for the tournament.

New England native Keegan Bradley missed the cut as he struggled on Saturday, shooting a 5-over par 76. Phil Mickelson made the cut on the number, birdieing the last hole to finish 1-over for the tournament.

Wings clipped: Northwestern nips BC

CHESTNUT HILL -- Northwestern scored 21 straight points to erase a 10-3 deficit and rally past Boston College, 24-17, Saturday afternoon at Alumni Stadium. Sophomore running back Andre Williams had a pair of touchdown runs filling in for star tailback Montel Harris, who injured his knee in the team's summer scrimmage. 

Eagles All-American linebacker Luke Kuechly made a couple of big plays in the first half to help the Eagles get off to a good start. He made a big stop on a 4th-and-1 attempt by the Wildcats in Eagles territory and moments later intercepted a Kain Colter pass and returned it to the Wildcats 1-yard line. Following a false start penalty, Williams ran it in around the left side, putting BC aehad, 10-3.

But Northwestern responded with a 3-yard TD run by Colter with 38 seconds left in the second quarter to force a 10-10 tie at the half. Northwestern captialized on a pair of missed field goals by Nate Freese and a Chase Rettig...
