Mashup: More fan violence at Euro soccer

Host Poland scored in the second half for a 1-1 tie with Russia on Tuesday at the European Championship soccer tournament, but the big story was the fan violence that preceded the game. About 5,000 Russian fans marched to the stadium in Warsaw to celebrate the Russia Day national holiday, and that did not sit well with the Poles. The countries have had tense relations for many years. At least 15 people were injured in the fighting. Meanwhile, in another incident during the match at an outdoor fan zone, a group of young Poles attacked police, who fired rubber bullets and tear gas.

The incidents come two days after video emerged of Russian fans beating stadium stewards after Russia's victory over the Czech Republic in Wroclaw.

Red Sox figure out Marlins behind Buchholz

MIAMI -- Clay Buchholz turned in his fourth straight stellar start, this time resulting in a 2-1 victory for the Red Sox over the Marlins on Tuesday night at Marlins Park.

Buchholz, who allowed one run on five hits over seven innings, has given up just five earned runs over his last 31 frames while lowering his ERA to 5.38. Against the Marlins, the righty also struck out nine while walking two. His only mistake came in the seventh, when he surrendered a solo home run to Logan Morrison.

The Red Sox offense was paced by Kelly Shoppach, with the catcher driving in the game's first run via a double in the seventh. Shoppach's second hit of the night, which scored Will Middlebrooks, was followed by an RBI single from Mike Aviles.

The Sox' pivotal seventh inning came against Marlins starter Mark Buehrle, who had held the visitors to just two hits heading into the frame. The lefty finished his seven-inning outing giving up the two runs on five hits...

Hill admits relief after elbow diagnosis

MIAMI -- For the first time since being diagnosed with having a strained flexor tendon in his left elbow, Red Sox reliever Rich Hill talked about the anxiousness he had prior to being examined by Dr. James Andrews.

"After having that surgery once and rehabbing and coming back strong, having something else happen and reoccurring, there's anxiety there that something could be wrong with the ligament," Hill said prior to the Red Sox' game against the Marlins at Marlins Park Tuesday night. "Turned out it wasn't, and that's really a good sign. It turned out it was a flexor tendon. That needs a couple of weeks of no throw. Don't throw for two weeks, re-evaluate and go from there."

Hill said he underwent an arthrogram MRI (which includes having dye shot into the area in question), while also getting a PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injection.

It was both the determination of both the doctors and Hill that the setback wasn't due to...
