Doubront dominant in win over Marlins

MIAMI -- Felix Doubront dominated through most of his seven innings of work Wednesday night, leading the Red Sox to a 10-2 win over the Marlins in the teams' series finale at Marlins Park.

Doubront carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning, not giving up a hit until Jose Reyes' two-out solo home run. The Sox' starter finished his 99-pitch outing (in which he threw 66 strikes) allowing two runs on three hits, striking out nine and walking one while lowering his ERA to 4.17.

Pacing the Red Sox' offense were the first four hitters in its batting order -- Scott Posednik, Dustin Pedroia, Adrian Gonzalez and David Ortiz -- who each had multiple-hit games and at least one RBI apiece. Ortiz was the only Sox player to go deep, kicking off the scoring with his 15th homer of the season, a solo shot off Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco in the fourth inning.

Also coming away with two-hit games for the Red Sox were Mike Aviles and Nick Punto, who came on as...

Kelly: Returning to B's was only option
By: DJ Bean

On a conference call with general manager Peter Chiarelli and teammate Gregory Campbell Wednesday, Bruins forward Chris Kelly said that passing up free agency was an easy decision. On Monday the veteran forward agreed in principal to a four-year, $12 million deal that he won't officially sign until July 1 because of what Chiarelli called "payroll tagging issues."

Kelly, who scored a career-high 20 goals and 39 points last season, skipped testing the open market in order to remain with the Bruins. He said Wednesday that it was his plan all along. 

"Right from day one, I think he knew that I wanted to be back and they wanted to have me back," Kelly said. "There’s no better feeling than that -- to be wanted, to come back to such a great organization. To be a Bruin is something that’s been really special to me the year and a half I’ve been here. 

"My wife and I have fallen in love with...

Pedro: 'Will always regret' Zimmer ordeal
By: DJ Bean

Three-time Cy Young award winner and 2004 World Series champion Pedro Martinez joined The Big Show Wednesday to discuss his career and this year's 'The Tradition' ceremony at which he'll be honored. 

Martinez discussed his historic tenure with the Red Sox in which he went 117-37 with a 2.52 earned run average, 1,683 strikeouts and two American League Cy Young awards. Though he faced some great Yankees teams over the years, he said that the biggest challenge he faced in his seven seasons in Boston was the media. 

"I'll tell you what, the toughest thing I ever had to face in Boston was having to talk to the media afterwards," he said. "If you're not ready to compete in every aspect of life, you're not ready for the big leagues. Big leagues is a package, and the city you play has its unique package that they offer for you. Boston has that package. The same way I competed in baseball, the same thing [with how I competed] with...

Brady: 'We're in full preparation mode'

FOXBORO -- In past years, the June minicamp for many NFL teams was considered a referesher course for the veterans and an orientation program of sorts for rookies and free agents. But on Wednesday, Tom Brady made it clear that the urgency is definitely there for this Patriots team, just four months removed from a Super Bowl loss to the Giants. After Thursday's final minicamp practice at Gillette Stadium, the Patriots will be off until July 26, when they report for training camp.

But Brady said players do not look at the next five weeks as vacation.

“Hopefully, we don’t look at it like that,” Brady said. “We’re in full preparation mode. This is the point where things really start getting ramped up. There’s no breaks. We had our vacation. We had a lot of time off and now it’s time to really focus in on what we need to do because we’re going to blink and the first game is going to be here. You have about...

Valentine: Rumors might affect Youkilis

MIAMI -- Prior to his team's game against the Marlins Wednesday night, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said that he couldn't tell how much trade rumors had been affecting Kevin Youkilis, but could sympathize with the infielder's situation.

"I can't tell," said Valentine when asked if he thought Youkilis' production was suffering because of any distractions. "He's a tough guy. It seems like he's a tough guy, but he would be inhuman if it didn't affect him because it's his life. Someone on TV. Somebody writes about it. Somebody calls him at night. His wife hears about it. 'Where are we going to be living?' … He's human. it's hard to think it doesn't affect him."

Valentine, who had a brief conversation with Youkilis Tuesday concerning the trade rumors, said the infielder was still hurting from being hit by a pitch Tuesday night. The manager reported that the Marlins' doctors were scheduled to look at Youkilis, with the...
