Crawford goes hitless in last rehab start

Making his second rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket, Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford went 0-for-3 Saturday night at McCoy Stadium. Crawford, who has been coming back from a left hamstring strain, struck out in his first at-bat, grounded out to first base his second time up, and popped up to third base after being jammed on an 80 mph fastball from lefty R.J. Swindle in his final plate appearance of the night.

Crawford, who didn't stay around to talk to the media following his outing, will travel to Baltimore Sunday where he will meet the team for its three-game series against the Orioles, starting Monday. He has been on the disabled list since June 18.

Sox flex muscle in win over Rays

Just after a month after Rays All-Star starter James Shields tossed a complete-game shutout against them, the Red Sox turned the tables in beating up the right-hander for six runs in his six innings of work en route to a 9-5 victory in St. Petersburg.

Shields gave up just six hits, but four were of the extra-base variety, starting with a two-run Josh Reddick homer and continuing with a two-run double from David Ortiz in the third gave the Sox a 4-3 lead they would never relinquish, the Sox added on with a J.D. Drew RBI double and a solo homer by Jacoby Ellsbury. Dustin Pedroia later added a solo homer (his third consecutive game with a longball, and his 13th four-bagger of the year) against reliever Juan Cruz.

The offensive eruption made a winner of Sox starter John Lackey. Though not as overpowering as he was in his final start of the first half against the Orioles, when he logged 6 2/3 shutout innings, Lackey (7-8) nonetheless showed impressive...

Buchholz: Back progressing, still frustrating

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Speaking before the Red Sox' game against the Rays Saturday, Clay Buchholz said he is making progress in his return from  a strained muscle in his back, but has been frustrated that he hasn't been able to return quicker.

"Yeah, it sucks. Obviously I wan tot be pitching. I want to help the team in any way I can," said Buchholz, who has been on the 15-day disabled list since June 19. "Me going out there not 100 percent, or not 80 percent, I don't think is going to help the team any. I think if I rush back into it, it will be something that will be here for the rest of the season and I don't want that. I'd rather be ready to pitch at 100 percent and feel like that's the way that I can help this team win."

Buchholz said he felt better than expected when throwing Friday, but was a bit sore Saturday, attributing the discomfort to inactivity over the past few weeks. The pitcher...

Jenks on DL, Williams up, Hottovy DFA'd

 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Red Sox have placed Bobby Jenks on the 15-day disabled list with tightness in his back, and called up lefty reliever Randy Williams. The team also designated lefty pitcher Tommy Hottovy for assignment to make room for Williams on the 40-man roster.

The discomfort Jenks felt while warming up Friday night was in the same area as he had felt earlier this season, an issue which put him on the DL and was caused by what he described as a strain to his intercostal muscles. The reliever, who is 2-2 with a 6.32 ERA in 19 games, pitched four times since coming off the disabled list, having last made an appearance on July 7.

The 35-year-old Williams was 1-1 with a 1.29 ERA in 19 games with Pawtucket, striking out 26 and walking 11 in 21 innings. He spent two stints on disabled list this season with shoulder problems, but had been recently clocked in the mid-90's according to Sox manager Terry Francona. He last pitched Friday...
