Buchholz won't throw until September

Red Sox manager Terry Francona suggested that right-hander Clay Buchholz, who was shut down in late July due to a stress fracture in his lower back, will be examined by team medical staff in the coming days to determine his next steps. Regardless of the exam, however, Buchholz -- who has been on the DL since June 17 -- would not begin throwing until at least Thursday.

"He is going to be examined in the next couple days, and even if the examination is good, he's not allowed to throw until [September] 1st," said Francona. "We should have some more information soon. They want to kind of getting him running through [Sox medical director Dr. Thomas Gill] and everyone here in the next couple days and kind of map out potentially getting him on a throwing program."

On Friday, Buchholz said that he is getting antsy waiting for a green light.

"I'm just sort of waiting on clearance from the doctors to go throw,"...

Atchison sent back down, Bowden recalled

After pitching three innings in relief Friday, allowing one run, Scott Atchison was sent back down to Triple-A Pawtucket prior to Saturday's doubleheader with the A's at Fenway Park. The team recalled right-hander Michael Bowden to restock the bullpen for the long day of baseball, in case extra pitching is needed. Including his option at the end of spring training on March 25, Saturday marked the sixth time this season the 35-year-old Atchison has been optioned to Triple-A. 

The 24-year-old Bowden, who arrived at Fenway just a couple of hours prior to the noon opener of the twinbill, will be in his fourth stint with the Red Sox this season. He has posted a 1.29 ERA in six games out of the bullpen with Boston in 2011.  He has also pitched in 41 games for the PawSox this year, all in relief, going 3-3 with 16 saves, a 2.73 ERA and 61 strikeouts compared to 18 walks.

Bowden has held Triple-A hitters to a .218 average and has limited...

Francona: Lackey, Beckett, Lester for NYY

Red Sox manager Terry Francona announced before Saturday's doubleheader that he has set the rotation for the club's upcoming three-game series with the Yankees. 

John Lackey will get the call in the opener on Tuesday night, followed by Josh Beckett on Wednesday and Jon Lester on Thursday. 

"We're staying right in order," Francona said. "Obviously, we're going to have some things to think about going forward, depending on how much baseball we play and when we play."

Lackey is 2-0 this season against the Yankees but with a 7.36 ERA and nine runs allowed in two starts. Beckett has been the most dominant Sox pitcher against New York this season, with a 3-0 record and a 1.00 ERA in four starts. Lester is 2-1 with a 5.00 ERA in three starts against the division rival.

The Red Sox have dominated the Yankees this season, winning 10 of the first 12 meetings between the archrivals.

Game 2 of Sox-A's resuming at 9:25

The Red Sox and A's were within three outs of turning the second contest of their day-night double header into an official game. However, with the Sox up 3-0, a runner on first, no outs and a 2-2 count for A's leadoff man Jemile Weeks in the top of the fifth inning, heavy rains forced the umpiring crew to call for the tarp to be rolled back onto the field at Fenway Park at 8:27 p.m.

After a nearly one hour rain delay, however, the two teams returned to the field at 9:25 p.m. Sox starter Erik Bedard had to be pulled after four innings and 78 pitches, giving way to reliever Alfredo Aceves, who is in prime position to improve his career record to 23-2.

The Red Sox took a 2-0 lead in the second on a David Ortiz two-run homer, and added on another run with a Jarrod Saltalamacchia RBI groundout in the bottom of the fourth. But with the rain intensifying as Weeks fouled off four 2-2 pitches from Erik Bedard, the umpires felt compelled to halt play....

Lineup: Lowrie out, Aviles at 3B for Game 1

After an 0-for-5 performance at the plate Friday night with a career-high four strikeouts, Jed Lowrie could use a day off, or at least part of the day off. The Red Sox infielder will not start for the first time since August 13 and will be replaced by his fellow utilityman Mike Aviles at third base for Saturday's first game of a doubleheader against the A's. Aviles returns to the infield after playing left field to mixed results Friday night.

Lowrie's struggles Friday night, which he called a "horse [expletive] night," are not the only reason why the 27-year-old finds himself out of the starting nine Saturday. Lowrie is hitting just .213 against righties this season, and with Oakland right-hander Guillermo Moscoso set to take the hill, the move to keep Lowrie out of the lineup seems like an easy one.
