Iglesias impresses in Sox' loss to Cards

JUPITER, Fla. -- The Red Sox suffered their first defeat in Grapefruit League play, as the Cardinals rallied for six runs in the eighth inning against relievers Chris Carpenter and Garrett Mock to claim a 9-3 victory.

Carpenter, in his first game appearance for the Red Sox since being acquired as compensation from the Cubs for Theo Epstein, had a strong first inning of work in the seventh before losing the plate in the eighth. The hard-throwing right-hander gave up three walks and a single before being lifted for Mock, the former Nationals big leaguer whom the Sox signed to a minor league deal last week. Mock ended up allowing a sacrifice fly and a three-run double along with another run-scoring hit.

For the Sox, Josh Beckett worked three shutout innings and Jose Iglesias delivered a pair of highlights, making a terrific...

Slow start dooms BC in loss to NC State

Boston College did not score a point for more than seven minutes to start the game, and the Eagles' season came to a close Thursday with a 78-57 loss to NC State in the opening round of the ACC tournament in Atlanta.

Ryan Anderson finished his rookie season with a 22-point, 12-rebound outing, and Lonnie Jackson added 10 points for BC (9-22).

Scott Wood hit 5-of-9 3-pointers en route to scoring 22 points for NC State (21-11), which advances to play fourth-seeded Virginia in Friday's quarterfinals.

After giving up the game's first 14 points, the Eagles trailed by 13 at the break before making a run early in the second half. When Anderson hit a layup with 14:47 left, it capped a 9-0 run and got BC within six at 43-37. It was a nine-point margin with 6:44 left after another Anderson layup, but NC State ended the game on a 20-8 run.

Beckett tosses three shutout innings

JUPITER, Fla. -- Red Sox starter Josh Beckett managed to complete a full spring day's work before a downpour intruded upon a Grapefruit League game between the Sox and Cardinals.

Beckett tossed three scoreless innings, requiring just 30 pitches (24 strikes) in his second start of the spring. He allowed a pair of hits and neither struck out nor walked any hitters. Of the nine outs Beckett recorded, seven came via ground ball.

His effort proved well-timed, as Beckett was able to conclude his outing before a storm interrupted the contest at 1:54 p.m., in the top of the fourth inning. At the time of the delay, the Red Sox had runners on second and third with no outs in a 0-0 tie. Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia dominated for two perfect innings, striking out four of the six Sox hitters he faced.

Mortensen: Dolphins favorite for Manning

Chris Mortensen of ESPN was a guest of the Mut & Merloni on Thursday. Mortensen was asked to predict the eventual destination for free-agent quarterback Peyton Manning

"I would say the Dolphins are the favorite," Mortensen said. "And the reasons are probably somewhat obvious. I'd say the AFC is now the weaker conference, but the main thing is that have a good team. They've got an All-Pro left tackle in Jake Long, they have a good, young center in [Mike] Pouncey, they've got Reggie Bush. They've got Brandon Marshall, they'll sign a Reggie Wayne and the defense isn't bad. He's certainly has a place to live, he's familiar with South Florida. There's a lot of things that make sense about the Dolphins."

Andrew Miller not concerned about setback

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Andrew Miller reported that the elbow stiffness he felt, forcing the Red Sox to scratch the lefty from his scheduled appearance Thursday against the Cardinals, was nothing he was concerned with.

"Just being a little cautious," Miller said. "Better to take care of it now than later. Knock it out now and hopefully not have to do deal with anything later on."

Miller explained the tightness was actually being classified as "triceps inflammation," residing just above his left elbow.

The pitcher said he felt fine the day after his outing Sunday, as well as the following day. But upon waking up Tuesday he started feeling some discomfort, which still didn't prevent him from throwing a bullpen session that day.

After the bullpen session, however, Miller said there was "just a little more soreness than was ideal at this time," leading to the precautionary measures by the team.
