Jenks won't need another rehab outing

PITTSBURGH -- Red Sox manager Terry Francona said prior to his team's series finale against the Pirates Sunday afternoon that reliever Bobby Jenks would not need another rehab appearance and most likely would be joining the team in Philadelphia Tuesday. Jenks has been on the 15-day-disabled list June 8 with strained left intercostal muscles. He made a rehab outing Saturday night in Manchester, N.H. for the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs, allowing no runs and one hit in an inning of work (throwing 13 pitches).

"We didn't feel like he needed an extended period as long as he felt good," Francona said. "I think he felt pretty good."

In other injury news, starter Clay Buchholz (back) threw his first side session, Sunday, and is still hopeful to make the July 4 at Fenway Park against the Blue Jays.

It is still undetermined whether Carl Crawford, who is on the 15-day disabled list with an injured hamstring, will be ready to play...

Report: Brady's mentor feeling better

Good news from the West Coast, where Tom Brady’s mentor Tom Martinez — who was given a dire prognosis just a short time ago — now appears to be feeling considerably better. In Sunday’s San Francisco Chronicle, Martinez tells writer Vittorio Tafur that he’s “feeling better” after helping finish up his 33rd annual quarterback camp.

“I’m optimistic after being almost completely certain that I was going to die,” Martinez said.

Martinez, who has struggled with complications due to diabetes in recent years, has moved from Stanford to UCLA to continue his treatment. They have adjusted his pacemaker and found a...

Gonzo: Injury more likely at first than in OF

PITTSBURGH -- Prior to Saturday night's game at PNC Park, Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez downplayed the risk he might face if switching from first base to left field, suggestion such concerns shouldn't be the impetus for not making the change.

"If I happen to do it everybody knows I'm not going to be great at it but I'll make the routine play and I don't see any fear of getting hurt for any reason," Gonzalez said. "Guys make errors in the outfield the same way they make errors in the infield.

"I can get hurt the same at first than I can get hurt in the outfield. I actually think I can get...

Sox struggles continue, lose fourth straight

PITTSBURGH -- The Red Sox dropped their fourth straight, this time losing to the Pirates, 6-4, Saturday night at PNC Park.

Taking the loss was Tim Wakefield, who lost the lead for good thanks to a four-run fourth inning by his old team. The frame was key by Lyle Overbay, whose three-run homer gave the Pirates a lead they would never relinquish.

The Sox were able to close the gap to a single run thanks to solo home runs by Josh Reddick and Jacoby Ellsbury. But a Garrett Jones solo homer off Sox reliever Matt Albers added an insurance run for the Bucs.

Wakefield finished his first outing in Pittsburgh since 1993 giving up five runs on seven hits over six innings, striking out two and walking four.

The Sox starter had cruised through the first three innings, having surrendered just a hit and a walk. But Wakefield ran into a bout of wildness, resulting in a one-out single from Andrew McCutchen and a Neil Walker prior to Overbay's blast....
