Doc to C's: 'I will get it out of you'

Peppered with questions about his team's effort in the final five minutes of Sunday's double-digit loss in Cleveland, Doc Rivers said he is going to find a way to get better results from his team. "I don't care how frustrating it gets for me," Rivers said before Monday's game with Detroit. "I see it, and if you see it or not, I see it and I'm going to get it out of you. And that's what I told them after the game [Sunday]. I don't know how but I will get it out of you." Rivers also said the team needs better production from Rasheed Wallace and Marquis Daniels.

Ortiz optimistic after home run

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- After going 2-for-2, with a two-run homer, a single and a walk in the Red Sox' 8-4 loss to the Orioles Monday at City of Palms Park, David Ortiz said, “That’s why you play in spring training, so I can figure things out. That’s the way it’s supposed to be, right?” The offensive showing was produced after Ortiz entered the game having gone 1-for-21 in spring training. 

  

The home run came in the third inning off of Baltimore starter Brad Bergesen, who threw a 3-1 slider that Ortiz deposited into the right field seats. While the homer might have been somewhat wind-aided, the slugger’s ability to make the most of the circumstance left him with the kind of optimism that he has had a hard time finding throughout the Sox’ Grapefruit League schedule.

 

After the game, Red Sox manager Terry Francona surmised that Ortiz’ best swing of the spring came...

Lowell notches hit, Ortiz homers

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Playing in his first spring training game of the season, Mike Lowell went 1-for-2 with a first-inning single to right. Lowell started at first base -- a position he hadn't played since his time with Triple A Columbus Clippers in 1998 -- not having to field any grounders. He did, however, take two throws from Billy Hall and Tim Wakefield, respectively, his his three-inning stint.

 

Also of note was David Ortiz' second hit of the spring, a third-inning, two-run homer over the right field fence. Ortiz, who walked in his first at-bat of the game, had come into the game 1-for-21.

 

Starter Tim Wakefield went 3 2/3 innings, giving up five runs on nine hits while hitting two batters. He threw 57 pitches, 32 for strikes.

Matsuzaka throws bullpen, no BP

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Daisuke Matsuzaka threw a short bullpen session Monday morning and will not throw batting practice to live hitters as was originally scheduled. "Today was an encouraging day for him," Sox pitching coach John Farrell said, noting that the absence of a BP session after Matsuzaka's 25 bullpen pitches was not a setback but rather a precautionary move by the team. Farrell indicated that the team will see how Matsuzaka responds Tuesday, and if all goes well, he will be scheduled to throw BP on Wednesday. Farrell also said that when Matsuzaka is ready for game action, he likely first will pitch in a minor league spring training game.

 

Matsuzaka's bullpen session comes two days after having to postpone a batting practice session due to a spasm in his neck. Matsuzaka has yet to face live hitters this spring training.
