Cameron, Sox 'pen win over Giants

Though Clay Buchholz was knocked out of Saturday's contest after pitching just one inning due to a hyperextended left knee, the Red Sox bullpen proved up to the task of taking a four-run advantage and navigating it to a 4-2 victory over the Giants in San Francisco. Seven Sox relievers combined to allow just two runs over eight innings, with particularly noteworthy performances by Scott Atchison (2 1/3 innings, one run), Dustin Richardson (who inherited a first-and-third jam with no outs in the sixth, and permitted just one run to score) and closer Jonathan Papelbon.


Papelbon, pitching for the first time since blowing saves on back-to-back nights in Colorado, sprinted through a perfect ninth inning, getting a pair of groundouts and a weak pop-out. He earned his 17th save, while Atchison claimed the victory.


The Sox got all of their offense in the first two innings against Giants starter Madison Bumgarner, who was making...

Sox acquire A's OF/2B Patterson

The Red Sox struck a deal with Oakland for second baseman/outfielder Eric Patterson, acquiring the 27-year-old in exchange for minor league pitcher Fabian Williamson.


Patterson is hitting .204 with a .255 OBP, .408 slugging mark and .662 OPS in 45 games with four homers and six steals for the A's this year. He has a career line of .224/.301/.340/.641. In parts of four big league seasons, he has played 32 of his 134 games at second base, the position where the Sox are seeking reinforcements after Dustin Pedroia landed on the disabled list.


Williamson was acquired by the Sox prior to the start of the 2010 season from the Mariners in exchange for reliever David Aardsma. He turned in a tremendous performance last year for Single-A Greenville, going 10-5 with a 2.42 ERA. With Hi-A Salem this year, the 21-year-old left-hander was 4-3 with a 3.72 ERA.

Buchholz leaves game with knee injury

Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz left Saturday's game against the Giants after the top of the second inning due to an apparent injury. Buchholz, after pitching a scoreless first inning, collected his first big league hit in the top of the second. But on a double play ball, he pulled up lame while running to second, grabbing the back of his left knee as he neared the bag.


Manager Terry Francona said during the Fox broadcast that the injury was a hyperextended left knee.


"It scared us all watching him walk off," Francona said during the broadcast. "He checked out pretty well. ... [The trainer] seems to think he's OK, which is a relief, but we'll certainly get him checked out more."


Buchholz is 10-4 with a 2.45 ERA. He was replaced in the bottom of the second inning by reliever Scott Atchison with the Sox leading, 4-0.

Chiarelli: B's remain active in trade market

LOS ANGELES- While Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli would not confirm increasing speculation that the team is trying to move goalie Tim Thomas and center Marc Savard, he did indicate at the conclusion of the NHL draft Saturday that the B's plan to remain active in the trade market.


“I’m not really into speculating about that kind of stuff,” said Chiarelli, who would not comment on Thomas or Savard having potentially waived no-trade clauses. “I’m not going to confirm or deny."


He was able to confirm the Bruins are still exploring trade waters.


"I went into this last period of a month or so thinking that I’m going to be more active in the trade market, I think that’s still the case,” said Chiarelli. “The trade market is still from now until the end of June 30th and then it even extends a bit beyond. There’s a bit of a shuffling of...

Ghana eliminates U.S. from World Cup

The United States saw its run at the World Cup come to a close on Saturday, losing 2-1 to Ghana in a round of 16 contest that was extended into extra time.


Ghana's Asamoah Gyan scored the game-winner 93 minutes into the battle, blasting a left-footed shot past U.S. goaltender Tim Howard. The U.S. was unable to score after the Gyan strike, despite several strong pressures into Ghana territory.


Ghana jumped ahead quickly in the contest, as Kevin Prince Boateng stole the ball from Ricardo Clark and connected on a 45-foot shot to take a 1-0 lead just five minutes into the game. Landon Donovan, however, tied the game in the 62nd minute, scoring on a penalty kick following a takedown of Clint Dempsey by Jonathan Mensah. This was Donavan's 12th World Cup appearance, a record for a United States player.


Ghana will play Uruguay in a quarterfinal contest on Friday.
