Buchholz helps Sox shut out Dodgers

Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz continued his tremendous first half by tossing 6 2/3 shutout innings to help lead his team to a 2-0 victory that concluded a three-game sweep over the Dodgers. With the win, Buchholz improved to 10-4 with a 2.47 ERA, tying him for the most wins in the American League and placing him third in ERA. Red Sox relievers Daniel Bard and Jonathan Papelbon handled the final seven outs, with Papelbon pitching a scoreless ninth for his 16th save.

 

The Sox got all the offense they needed in the early innings, thanks in large part to the heady baserunning of Dustin Pedroia. Pedroia singled in the first inning and stole second. An errant throw from Dodgers catcher Russell Martin trickled just a few feet from the bag, but Pedroia raced to third when he noticed that the bag was vacated thanks to the shift that Los Angeles was employing against David Ortiz. That, in turn, allowed Pedroia to score on an infield single by Kevin...

B's not necessarily front-runners for Horton
By: DJ Bean

It appears the Bruins may not be on the verge of acquiring Florida Panthers forward Nathan Horton, according to a source close to the situation. Reports surfaced this weekend that the Bruins had been closing in on a trade for the former third overall pick, but the Bruins were just one of multiple teams to nearly have a deal with the Panthers. 

 

"They were close, as were a few other teams," the source said of the Bruins' chances of getting Horton. It was unclear where a potential trade stood as of Sunday night.

 

The Panthers selected Horton in the 2003 NHL draft after flipping the top overall pick to the Penguins (Marc-Andre Fleury). The 25-year-old has never surpassed 62 points in his six-year NHL career and has scored 30 goals in just one season, a 2006-2007 campaign in which he gathered 31. A natural right wing, Horton was moved to center in the 2008-2009 season. The Panthers have been trying to move...

McDowell wins U.S. Open

Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland edged Frenchman Gregory Havret by one stroke on Sunday to become the first European to win the U.S. Open in 40 years. McDowell shot a 3-over 74 on a difficult Sunday at Pebble Beach to finish at even-par 284 for the tournament and win by one. Ernie Els finished third at 2 over, while Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson were tied for fourth, three shots back.

Sox draftee Ranaudo strong in Cape League

Right-hander Anthony Ranaudo, selected out of LSU by the Red Sox with their third pick (No. 39) of the 2010 draft, delivered an impressive performance in his debut for Brewster of the Cape League on Sunday. The 20-year-old threw four innings for Brewster, allowing one hit and one unearned run while walking a batter and striking out three. One observer said that his fastball was regularly clocked at 90-92 mph.

 

Ranaudo is pitching in the Cape League in part to demonstrate his health as he prepares for negotiations with the Sox. Ranaudo was viewed as perhaps the top college pitcher in the country entering this year, but his draft stock sank due to injuries that played a part in his disappointing performance as a junior. As such, he is trying to demonstrate through a healthy performance this summer that he deserves a bonus more in line with one of the elite players in the country.

Tito on Drew: Not 'remotely' DL situation

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said he is hopeful that J.D. Drew will return from a mild hamstring strain on Tuesday night at Coors Field in Colorado, adding he doesn't believe the right fielder is headed for the disabled list. 

 

"I hope Tuesday's realistic," Francona said before Sunday's game. "If it's not, we won't do it. I think it's probably realistic to think it might work, that he might play. The good news is that I don't think anybody remotely thinks it's a DL. Stay away from him tonight, get day off [Monday] and see how he's doing. It's a big outfield in Denver. If he's healthy to play, he'll play, if not we'll make the adjustment like we always do."
