Celtic prevails in extras at Fenway

Paul McGowan scored the decisive goal in extra penalty kicks as Celtic F.C. defeated Sporting Club de Portugal before 32,162 in the inaugural Fenway Football Challenge Wednesday night at Fenway Park. McGowan's goal came just moments after Liedson's shot went over everything and into the right field grandstands, giving Celtic the 6-5 edge in penalty kicks. 

 

Helder Postiga's header in the 82nd minute lifted Sporting Club de Portugal into a 1-1 draw in regulation. Diogo Salomao just missed moments earlier, hitting the crossbar on a header, drawing Celtic keeper Lukasz Zaluska out of position and allowing Postiga to knot the match. 

 

Georgios Samaras scored on a penalty kick in the 72nd minute to give Celtic the lead in the first Fenway Football Challenge.

 

Samaras, who played for Greece in the recent World Cup, had several chances in the first and second half before getting tripped by Anderson...

Hermida returns, Nava optioned to Triple-A

Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava told reporters in Oakland that he had been optioned back to Triple-A Pawtucket following his club's loss to the Athletics on Wednesday. The outfielder, who became the second player in baseball history to hit a grand slam on the first pitch he saw in his big league career, was sent back to the PawSox in order to clear a roster spot for Jeremy Hermida.

 

Nava hit .286 with a .381 OBP, .832 OPS, one homer and 16 RBI in 29 games. The switch-hitter was particularly impressive against right-handers, hitting .319 with a .390 OBP and .911 OPS. 

 

The 27-year-old took his return to the minors in stride.

 

"I've got things I need to work on, and I'll go back there, try to work on that stuff, try to focus on that stuff, wait for another opportunity," he told reporters in Oakland.

Buchholz rusty as Sox fall to A's
By: DJ Bean

Jack Cust and Matt Watson each homered in spoling Clay Buchholz' return from the disabled list on Wednesday as the Athletics' bats once again proved stronger than those of the visiting team in a 6-4 Red Sox loss.

 

Jed Lowrie filled in admirably for Marco Scutaro in his first game of the season, while Adrian Beltre supplied the Sox with the team's only homer. Though the Sox mustered four runs off of A's starter Gio Gonzalez, the offense was silenced for much of the lefty's start and failed to tack on a run after the 24-year-old's departure. 

 

Buchholz struggled in each of his four-plus frames, facing 24 batters en route to recording just 13 outs. The cleanest he looked in the game was in the fourth inning, as the only slip-up Buchholz had was a walk to Cliff Pennington after Rajai Davis reached on a throwing error by Lowrie.

 

For Buchholz, it was his shortest start of the season to not be...
