Just heavenly: Sox complete 4-game sweep

Victor Martinez smacked a two-run homer and tied the game with a two-run double in the fifth as the Red Sox erased an early four-run deficit in an 11-6 romp over the Los Angeles Angels, completing a four-game series sweep of the Halos at Fenway Park for the first time since 1967. The Red Sox improved to 15-14, the first time they've been above .500 since their win over the Yankees on opening night. 

 

Dustin Pedroia also went 2-for-4 and scored three times as the Red Sox dug Daisuke Matsuzaka out of an early hole. Matsuzaka allowed four runs in the first inning and needed 39 pitches to get through the first. But he allowed just one run after that and earned his first victory of the season by scattering nine hits over 5 1/3 innings. 

 

Jeremy Hermida contributed with a two-run pinch double in a five-run fifth that put the Red Sox ahead to stay. The Red Sox welcome the New York Yankees to town for a three-game...

Theo: 'I didn't call anyone out'

Talking to the media prior to the Red Sox' Thursday night game with the Angels, Sox general manager Theo Epstein talked about a variety of topics, including his assertion in the Boston Herald after Sunday's loss that change might be on the way if the team didn't start playing better.

 

"One reporter came up and asked me a question, what kind of baseball are you guys playing. And I don’t think there’s a single player in that clubhouse that would disagree with me. I didn’t call anyone out," Epstein said. "I didn’t call our players out. We’re all in this together. But the fact of the matter is we were not playing good baseball. We all know that. We weren’t playing the kind of baseball we were capable of. Tito had a meeting, a couple other things – there’s a reason you do those things, not that they ultimately matter. Ultimately it’s how our players play, and they’ve done a...

Krejci to rehab for at least four months

PHILADELPHIA -- Dr. George Kasparyan, director of hand surgery at the Lahey Clinic, said via email on Thursday that a wrist dislocation, such as the one suffered by Bruins center David Krejci in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Flyers on Wednesday, is an injury that takes a least four months of rehabilitation to recover from. Kasparyan said that a wrist dislocation is worse than a fracture (as was originally reported) because 'ligaments are always torn and require surgical repair" and that the injury required immediate surgery because "the urgency is to restore blood flow to the carpal bones and take the pressure off the nerves of the wrist."

 

Krejci's surgery was performed late Wednesday night to early Thursday morning by Dr. Thomas Graham, Surgeon-in-Chief at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, MD.

Raiders cut JaMarcus Russell

The Raiders released former No. 1 pick JaMarcus Russell on Thursday, ending a tumultuous three-year run where he will have received almost $40 million while producing only seven wins as a starter. The decision came less than two weeks after Oakland acquired Jason Campbell from Washington to take over at quarterback and signifies owner Al Davis finally lost patience with the LSU product who was drafted first overall in 2007. Russell will now likely be considered one of the biggest draft busts in NFL history, joining a group that includes Ryan Leaf. For more football news, check out our football blog, It Is What It Is.
