Red Sox left-hander Rich Hill grabbed his left elbow on the seventh and final pitch that he threw to White Sox slugger Adam Dunn, a full-count curveball that missed down and in for a walk. Red Sox trainers immediately went to the mound to visit Hill, who was promptly removed from the game. The Red Sox announced that he left the contest with a left forearm injury.
Dunn was the only batter whom Hill faced. The left-hander threw seven straight curveballs to the masher. Hill said in a conversation late last season that he experienced little to no stress on his arm when flipping curveballs.
“I don’t feel like it puts stress on my arm in any shape or form,” said Hill. “I could throw 100 pitches like that and it wouldn’t be a problem.”
It was the 15th appearance of Hill's Red Sox...
Shaquille O'Neal posted a video on Tout, which indicates that he is ready to retire after 19 years in the NBA. "We did it, 19 years baby," O'Neal said in the video. "I want to thank you very much. That's why I'm telling you first: I'm about to retire."
O'Neal played 37 games for the Celtics in his one season with the team, but only appeared in one regular season game and two playoff games after February because of an Achilles injury.

"He's just been kind of scuffling a little bit," Francona said before Wednesday's matinee.
Josh Reddick started in place of Drew, who entered Wednesday batting just .228 with three homers and 10 RBIs in the final year of his five-year, $70 million contract.
"Maybe Red will give us a little, sometimes day game after a night game you're looking for some energy, maybe Red will bump into one," Francona said of Reddick. "He's been playing pretty well, maybe just will give us a little boost."
As for Drew, he is just 3-for-19 in his last nine games, giving Francona a reason to sit his starting right fielder.
"I think we keep waiting for that," Francona said, referring to Drew's usual mid-season hot streak....
