Lowrie's career night leads Sox past NY

NEW YORK -- Red Sox shortstop Jed Lowrie enjoyed a perfect night, going 4-for-4 with a three-run homer, three runs and three runs batted in, as he and the bottom of the Sox lineup led the Sox past Andy Pettitte and the Yankees in a 10-8 victory.

 

Lowrie drove a three-run homer to the opposite field in the top of the second inning against Pettitte, and from there, the Sox continued to add on. Bill Hall clubbed a three-run homer, Darnell McDonald added a two-run double and Marco Scutaro delivered a two-run single. Hence, on a night when the Nos. 2-6 hitters did not drive in a single run, the Sox still reached double figures in runs scored for just the fourth time since the All-Star break. That, in turn, allowed the Sox to withstand a barrage of six homers by New York.

 

Sox starter Josh Beckett was sharp early, allowing just one run through five innings, before fading in the sixth and seventh. He allowed three homers and...

Lowell leaves game after ball hits face

NEW YORK -- Red Sox first baseman Mike Lowell left Friday night's contest against the Yankees in the bottom of the sixth inning, one inning after a bad-hop grounder caromed off his right ear. He left the contest for what the Sox described as "precautionary reasons."

 

After the Curtis Granderson grounder with two outs in the fifth inning hit the side of his head, Lowell immediately sprawled on the dirt. Sox trainer Mike Reinold rushed to attend to him, but Lowell initially suggested that he was fine. He got up and remained in the game for the rest of the inning. However, he was replaced at first base by Lars Anderson for the bottom of the sixth inning.

 

The incident marred what had been a fine night for the 36-year-old, who was 1-for-2 with a single, walk and a season-high three runs scored.

 

UPDATE: After the game, Lowell declared that he felt "fine," and that he did not exhibit...

Savard to break silence Saturday
By: DJ Bean

Marc Savard is set to address the media at 10:30 on Saturday morning. After a summer of speculation and rumors, Peter Chiarelli notified the media last Friday that Savard would miss the beginning of camp after shutting down his training due to symptoms of post-concussion syndrome.

 

Savard suffered the concussion on March 7 on a hit from Penguins forward Matt Cooke. He missed the remainder of the regular season before returning for the team's second-round matchup with the Flyers. 

 

The center, who is in the first year of a seven-year, $28.5 million contract extension, hasn't spoken to the Boston media since the end of last season, though he did tell the Ottawa Sun that he was "hurt" by the idea of the team trading him. Details are currently unknown of what developments may come of the session.

Report: Patriots will promote Crable

Outside linebacker Shawn Crable will be promoted from the practice squad and join the 53-man roster in time for this Sunday's game, according to a Boston.com report. The 6-foot-5, 243-pound Crable, who was taken with the 78th overall pick in the 2008 draft, has spent his entire career with the Patriots, but has yet to play in a single regular-season game. Crable was sidelined by a shin injury in 2008 that landed him on injured reserve, and last season, a groin injury left him on the IR for the entire year. Crable would fill the roster spot that opened when running back Kevin Faulk was placed on injured reserve with a torn ACL earlier this week.

No plans to start Lester on short rest

NEW YORK -- Red Sox manager Terry Francona said that, while there had been some conversation earlier this month about the possibility of having starter Jon Lester pitch on short rest in order to give him an extra start in his pursuit of 20 victories, the team had decided against such a course. Lester, who is 18-8 with a 3.06 ERA, will start on Saturday against the Yankees and again next week against the White Sox.

 

In early September, when the team was considering having Clay Buchholz pitch on short rest, having Lester do the same was a consideration. But while the Red Sox could have pushed up Lester's start against the Yankees to Friday, thus giving him a chance at a total of three more starts this year (one of which would have had to come with short rest), the team decided against it, particularly given that Lester is already at 197 innings for the year, and will soon surpass 200 innings for the third straight season.
