London judge's ruling aids Sox owners

A High Court judge in London ruled against the American owners of Premier League soccer team Liverpool on Wednesday, paving the way for the team to be sold to New England Sports Ventures, the ownership company of the Red Sox.


Red Sox owner John Henry sent out a congratulatory tweet Wednesday morning to Liverpool board members Martin Broughton, Christian Purslow and Ian Ayre, along with Royal Bank of Scotland, the team's major creditor, that read: "Well done Martin, Christian & Ian. Well done RBS. Well done supporters!"


Tom Hicks and George Gillett had tried to replace those three board members to keep control of the club until a more lucrative offer could be accepted. Judge Christopher Floyd said that the owners were guilty of "the clearest possible breach" by their behavior. The lawyer for Hicks and Gillett admitted as much but said it was necessary because the board was not...

Mashup: Transgender woman sues LPGA

A transgender woman is suing the LPGA after being banned from the women's world championship in long-drive golf due to a rule that competitors must be female at birth. Lana Lawless, a 57-year-old retired police officer who had gender-reassignment surgery in 2005, won the event in 2008. But the organization that oversees the competition, Long Drivers of America, this year has decided to match the LPGA's policy, ruling out Lawless. "There is no such thing as born female," Lawless said. "Either you’re female, or you’re not." Read more about that story and others, along with videos, trivia and more, at Wednesday's Morning Mashup.

Casey Kelly set to pitch in Arizona

Red Sox prospect Casey Kelly will start for the Peoria Javelinas of the Arizona Fall League on Wednesday, commencing his AFL campaign. The 21-year-old, who was shut down while pitching for the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs due to a strained lat muscle, will pitch 15-20 innings in Arizona to make up for some of the innings he missed at the end of Portland's season, according to Red Sox farm director Mike Hazen.


Fellow Red Sox minor leaguers Jose Iglesias (1-for-4), Ryan Lavarnway (1-for-3 with a walk), Juan Carlos Linares (1-for-3, double) and Seth Garrison (one inning, one run) made their first appearances of the AFL season on Tuesday.

Lee leads Texas past Rays into ALCS

Cliff Lee continued his postseason mastery, as the left-hander tossed a complete game to give the Rangers a 5-1 victory over the Rays in the winner-take-all Game 5 of the American League Division Series. The Rangers will advance to the ALCS against the Yankees, while Tampa Bay's season came to a crashing halt.


Lee mesmerized the Rays, barely breaking a sweat in tossing 120 pitches while going the distance. The southpaw -- acquired in July from the Mariners -- allowed six hits and struck out 11 while walking none. He set an ALDS record by striking out 20, and amazingly, he did not issue a single free pass in either of his two starts. In his playoff career, Lee improved to 6-0 with a 1.44 ERA and 54 strikeouts against just six free passes in 56 1/3 innings.


Lee allowed just one run in the third inning, when the Rays strung together three hits. Otherwise, he employed a precise and diverse arsenal -- fastball, cutter,...
