Youkilis replaces A-Rod on All-Star team

With Alex Rodriguez having pulled out of Tuesday's All-Star Game to rest his ailing knee, Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis was named as his replacement for the Midsummer Classic by Rangers manager Ron Washington. It is the third time that Youkilis has been named to the squad. He was named as a first baseman in both 2008 and 2009.

Youkilis is hitting .275 with a .393 OBP, .491 slugging mark, 12 homers and 59 RBI. He ranks among the top 10 in the American League in OBP, doubles, walks and RBI.

Gregg to Ortiz: 'Play the game right'

After trading haymakers that missed with David Ortiz, Kevin Gregg said he had every right to pitch inside on three straight pitches that led to a bench-clearing brawl Friday night at Fenway.

"He's been leaning out over the plate the whole series, and he does all the time," Gregg said. "I'm going to pitch in to be able to get him out. He disliked it. That's part of the game. He doesn't have to like it but I'm going to pitch in there to get him out. Apparently, he thought I was throwing at him but if I was going to throw at him, I would've hit him. If I was going to throw at a guy, I'm going to hit the guy, I'm not going to miss him. I believe I can hit a guy if I want to, and I wasn't trying to hit him. I was trying to pitch in and get him out."

After hitting a fly ball to center fielder Adam Jones on the fourth pitch, Ortiz, who did not speak to the media after the game, was verbally challenged by Gregg as he made his way up the...

Basebrawl: Sox blow out hapless O's again

The Red Sox obliterated the hapless Orioles for a second straight night, sending 13 batters to the plate and scoring eight times in the first inning in a 10-3 brawl-filled romp on Friday at a rainy Fenway Park. 

The win might have been costly as Red Sox ace and All-Star Josh Beckett - making his final start before All-Star break - slipped while making a pitch to Felix Pie in the fifth inning and came out of the game after just 68 pitches with a mildly hyperextended left knee. The team said during the game that the ace - who improved to 8-3 - left for precautionary reasons. 

After J.J. Hardy misplayed a likely double play ball off the bat of Kevin Youkilis, which drove in Boston's first run, David Ortiz launched a long homer to right for his team-leading 19th of the season, putting the Red Sox up 4-0. The Red Sox chased lefty Zach Britton, who came into the game with a 6-6 mark and an impressive 3.47 ERA.

Ortiz, Gregg center of major Fenway brawl

David Ortiz and Kevin Gregg were ejected in a bench-clearing brawl Friday night in the eighth inning of a Red Sox rout of the Orioles. 

After two straight inside pitches, Gregg came inside for a third straight pitch and Ortiz approached the mound and pointed his bat toward Gregg. On the fourth pitch, with Josh Reddick on third, Ortiz flew out to center field. While Ortiz was heading up the first base line, Gregg yelled at Ortiz, motioning him to get up the first base line. 

Ortiz took the challenge and charged Gregg and a full-scale brawl -- with errant punches thrown by both Gregg and Ortiz -- ensued. After 20 minutes and the ejections of Ortiz, Gregg, Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Jason Johnson, order was restored, with the Red Sox still leading, 10-3..

Beckett leaves after slipping on wet mound

Despite leading 8-3, and having thrown just 68 pitches, Josh Beckett left Friday's game against the Orioles after five innings after slipping on a wet mound at Fenway and suffering a mildly hyperextended left knee. The Red Sox say he left for precautionary reasons. 

Beckett's plant foot slipped after throwing Ball 1 to Felix Pie. Red Sox manager Terry Francona and trainer Greg Barajas came racing out of the dugout to look at their star ace, who is leading the staff with a 7-3 mark and a 2.12 ERA. Beckett stayed in the game but was not as effective as he had been in throwing four shutout innings and leading, 8-0. 

He eventually walked Pie and Robert Andino, both of whom came around to score as Beckett surrendered RBI singles to Nick Markakis and Adam Jones. Derrick Lee opened the fifth with a mammoth homer off the Volvo sign in left. 

Beckett missed over a month last year with a sore back when he slipped on a wet Yankee Stadium...
