Youkilis: 'I'm just ready to play'

Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis said that he feels healthy again after a stint on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain on Aug. 18. The 31-year-old received an epidural injection after landing on the D.L., and suggested that he is now ready to return as a contributor for the final month of the regular season and into October.

"It’s September and we just go out and play the game. But I feel pretty good right now, I’m just ready to play ball," said Youkilis. "Hopefully I can go out there and play well and play at a high level and help this team win. For me, it’s always my goal to get out there and help them do that and help us in the last 20-something games stay in first place and try to win this division."

Youkilis, who went 2-for-8 on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket this week, returned to his customary cleanup spot. He will have an imposing act to follow, however, as teammate...

DBC: Matteson leads; Bradley three back

NORTON -- As the third-to-last player in the field, Troy Matteson certainly proved that he belongs at the Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton as a part of the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup. He carded an opening round 6-under 65 to hold a one-shot lead over four golfers.

Matteson carded seven birdies and one bogey on his round. Only the top 100 players in the FedEx Cup Standings qualified for the tournament, and he sits at No. 97.

No. 1-ranked player in the world Luke Donald headlines the four players one stroke behind Matteson. Also in that group are Masters champion Charl Schwartzel, Jerry Kelly and Y.E. Yang.

New England native and PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley shot a 3-under 68 and trails Matteson by three strokes. Phil Mickelson carded a one-under 70, playing the first tournament round of his career with a belly putter.

Francona: 700 straight sellouts 'Really cool'

The Red Sox are passing yet another remarkable milestone at Fenway Park. Friday's game marks the 700th consecutive sellout, dating back to May 15, 2003, the second season of the John Henry stewardship of the franchise. As was the case eight years ago, the Rangers provide the opposition. 

"I actually think it's really cool, maybe more cool than most people," said Red Sox manager Terry Francona, who has seen nothing but home sellouts since his first year as skipper in 2004. "I've been in places where there's been apathy and there's nothing worse than that. You come here on a Sunday day game after a Saturday night game and the place is always full. I kid a lot about the "hot dog races" and stuff; we don't do that here. Baseball is good enough, and I really like that." 

Francona was the manager of the Philadelphia Phillies from 1997-2000, when the Phils often played in front of sparse crowds at the old cavernous...

Clemens will face new perjury trial

Roger Clemens will face a new trial in his perjury case, a federal judge ruled on Friday.

United States District Court Judge Reggie Walton denied Clemens' motion to bar a retrial after hearing about 90 minutes of arguments from defense attorney Mark Attanasio and government attorney David Goodhead in Washington, D.C. on Friday.

It was Walton who declared a mistrial on July 15 after prosecutors showed jurors evidence that Walton had ruled out. Walton has set the trial for April 17, 2012.
