Faxon on D&C: Tiger will 'take a while'

PGA Tour veteran Brad Faxon joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about Louis Oosthuizen's victory at the British Open and Tiger Woods' disappointing performance there. "I think we're going to have some peaks and valleys with Tiger's play," Faxon said of Woods' comeback. "I don't think he's anywhere where he's going to get to. I just think it's going to take a while."

 

Asked if Woods will win a tournament in 2010, Faxon said: "If you would have asked me a few months ago, I would have said yes. Now I'm thinking, I don't know if he's going to win this year."

 

While this past weekend's event did not create a great deal of interest, Faxon noted that having other players step to the forefront might not be the worst thing for the sport. "I don't think it's terrible for golf if Tiger's not the lead man all the time," he said.

Martinez plays catch for first time since injury

Victor Martinez took another step in the right direction, Sunday, playing catch for the first time since going on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left thumb May 29.

 

While it was just a very light game of toss, just the fact the catcher was able to wear a glove offered a good deal of optimism.

 

"It was a good step," Martinez said. "Obviously I was playing catch very carefully, but it's still sore. But at least I was able to put my hand in the glove, so that was a big thing."

 

Martinez, who will be making the 10-game West Coast trip with the team, still wouldn't put any timetable on his return. He has swung a bat, although taking swings from the right side continues to be somewhat uncomfortable.

 

"We'll see how it feels tomorrow. We're taking it day by day now," Martinez said. "It's definitely a lot better. That's a good thing, that it's a...

Sox plan: Beckett back Friday to face Seattle

If an extended side session goes well on Tuesday, Red Sox manager Terry Francona announced following his team's 4-2 loss to the Rangers that Josh Beckett would return to the rotation on Friday in Seattle against the Mariners. Beckett made two rehab starts for Triple-A Pawtucket and had made just eight starts this season for Boston before being put on the disabled list on May 19 with a strained lower back.

 

"As far as I’m concerned, yeah, I’m ready to start on Friday, but it’s not the end-all, be-all," said Beckett, who gave up three runs in his second rehab start on Saturday in Syracuse. 

 

Francona also announced that John Lackey would start the Mariners series on Thursday, while Jon Lester will go on Saturday.

Wilson outduels Lester, Rangers beat Sox

The Red Sox faced another tough lefty starter but this time they had no ninth-inning magic. C.J. Wilson fanned a career-best 10 batters and the Rangers scratched out nine hits and four runs - three earned - off Jon Lester as the Rangers beat the Red Sox, 4-2, at Fenway Park to take three-of-four from Boston in the weekend series.

 

Mike Cameron homered to left to open the ninth, cutting the deficit to two and Bill Hall reached on an error, but the Red Sox could not push another run across.

 

The Red Sox must now find a way to regroup as they face the daunting task of playing 10 straight against A.L. West foes, starting off a three-game set in Oakland Monday night before playing four in Seattle and three in Los Angeles against the Angels.

Oosthuizen runs away with British Open

Louis Oosthuizen dominated in winning his first major championship, claiming the British Open by seven strokes. The South African was able to cruise into the home stretch after his closest challenger, Paul Casey triple-bogeyed the 12th hole at St. Andrews. Oosthuizen entered the day with a four-shot lead and finished his final day with a 1-uner 71, good enough for a score of 16-under for the tournament. For more from the British Open click here.
