Conor Jackson: 'I feel like I ran into a truck'

Red Sox utilityman Conor Jackson, who had to leave Sunday's game after three innings after banging his right forearm and right knee into the low, unforgiving fence in front of the Sox bullpen in right center while trying to track down a fly ball, said that he hopes to be better after "a few days of treatment." Jackson, acquired from the A's on Aug. 31, said that X-rays on his injuries were negative, and that he is simply dealing with a contusion to his right knee.

"My knee, my wrist is kind of sore, everything is kind of sore. I got some X-rays which were negative. That's a good sign. Hopefully some treatment and we'll be back out there," Jackson said. "[The ball] carried a lot more than I thought it was going to go. Usually, if you know a ball is going to go far, after about five or six steps you're looking to see where you are, where the ball is hit, and the wind takes it a little bit. Kind of don't have that luxury [at Fenway...

DBC: Watson leads quintet by a stroke

NORTON -- After the day began with three players tied for the lead at 10-under par, none of the three could distance themselves from the field, creating a crowded leaderboard at the Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton. Bubba Watson shot a 1-under 70 to finish at 11-under for the tournament and lead by one over five golfers.

2003 Deutsche Bank champion Adam Scott headlines the five players one stroke behind Watson heading into Monday's final round. The others are Jason Day, Brendan Steele, Chez Reavie and Jerry Kelly. There are also five players at 9-under par, two strokes back.

Phil Mickelson, who just made the cut on the number on Saturday, went out early Sunday morning and put himself right back in the tournament by shooting a 8-under par 63. He is 7-under for the tournament, only four strokes behind Watson.

Hammered: Rangers batter Sox in finale

John Lackey was hammered for eight hits and six runs in five-plus innings while the Rangers exploded for seven runs in the sixth inning as Texas pounded the Red Sox 11-4 Sunday at Fenway to take 2-of-3 in the weekend series. With the Yankees beating the Blue Jays in the Bronx, the Red Sox are 1 1/2 games behind the Yankees in the AL East, their largest deficit in the division since July 5. 

Rangers lefty starter Matt Hairson scattered seven hits and allowed just two runs in seven innings as the leaders of the AL West won the season series 6-4. 

Josh Hamilton's three-run triple in the sixth highlighted the offensive explosion that turned a 2-0 game into a rout. Lackey (12-11) started the inning and faced five batters but couldn't retire any. He finished with a 6.11 ERA, the highest in the American League among qualifying starting pitchers. Reliever Felix Doubront didn't fare much better, as he entered with the bases loaded and none out in...

Conor Jackson leaves with knee injury

Newly acquired Red Sox utilityman Conor Jackson, whom the Sox acquired from the A's just before the Aug. 31 deadline to trade for players who can be added to the postseason roster, left Sunday's game against the Rangers prior to the top of the fourth inning with a bruised right knee. He had injured himself in the top of the third while trying to chase down an Ian Kinsler fly ball to the fence in deep right center.

Jackson gloved the ball on the warning track, but his right arm slammed, ribs and apparently his leg slammed into the low fence in front of the Red Sox bullpen. The ball jarred loose, though Jackson's efforts did turn a potential homer into a triple.

Jackson, who grounded into a double play in his only at-bat, was replaced in right field by Darnell McDonald for the fourth, with the Rangers leading, 2-0. Jackson is 0-for-4 as a member of the Sox.

Buchholz up to 90 feet, feeling good

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz said that he "felt really good" after throwing on flat ground up to 90 feet on Sunday. He had 20 throws from 60 feet and 20 more from 75 feet, and then he stretched out to 90 for the first time.

He will accompany the Sox on their upcoming seven-game road trip through Toronto and Tampa Bay. He hopes to work his way up to 120 feet during the road trip -- usually the distance that precedes a bullpen session -- and then "go from there."

"I can’t stay here. I’d be bored out of my mind. I’m going to continue my throwing program on the road," said Buchholz, who is 6-3 with a 3.48 ERA this year but has been out since mid-June with a stress fracture in his lower back. "Right now I feel better playing catch than I did [the last time he tried to throw in late July].

"I haven’t really tested it yet. I’m trying to build up to get to that point, don...
