Freefall continues: Sox lose Game 1

NEW YORK -- The Red Sox continued their September swoon, suffering a 6-2 loss to the Yankees that left the team clinging to a half-game lead over the Tampa Bay Rays in the wild card, after the Rays beat Toronto, 5-2.

The Sox trailed from the outset, as starter Tim Wakefield -- in what may have been the final start of his career -- allowed a pair of runs in the first that featured a savage little-ball attack from the Yankees. New York collected a pair of bunt singles, stole a pair of bases and took advantage of a passed ball, wild pitch and error by catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia to claim an early advantage. Jorge Posada added a two-run homer in the third off of Wakefield, who allowed five runs (three earned) on five hits and five walks in four-plus innings.

The Sox, meanwhile, could manage little against Yankees starter A.J. Burnett. Aside from a pair of solo homers by Jacoby Ellsbury (giving the outfielder 30 homers, which in turn made him the...

Late Bills: Pats meltdown in loss

The Patriots defense blew a 21-0 lead and wasted a brilliant game by Wes Welker to fall in stunning fashion to the Bills, 34-31, Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Tom Brady matched a career-high by throwing four interceptions, three of them leading to touchdowns, and the Patriots lost to the Bills for the first time since Sept. 7, 2003, snapping a 15-game winning streak. The Bills killed the clock after Fred Jackson's touchdown was overturned and Rian Lindell kicked the game-winning 28-yard field goal as time expired.

Welker finished with career highs of 16 catches and 216 yards in the loss. Coach Bill Belichick called a second time-out arguing with an official on the sidelines moments after replay ruled Jackson down just a yard shy of the goal line. With just one timeout left, the Bills were able to run down the clock, setting up Lindell's field goal.

The Bills won the opening coin toss but stunningly decided to give the ball to Brady and the...

Atchison leaves with mild groin injury

NEW YORK -- Red Sox reliever Scott Atchison left Game 1 of Sunday's double header with what the club described as a mild tweak of his right groin after a warmup toss prior to the bottom of the eighth inning. One day after he pitched 2 1/3 scoreless innings, Atchison was brought into the game with two outs in the sixth.

He recorded four outs, but then started to to feel discomfort on his push-off leg while warming up for the eighth. While the reliever initially appeared to shake his arm, he clarified that he was merely gesturing to the area where he had felt discomfort.

Atchison had been among the Sox' most effective pitchers this month, recording a 1.50 ERA in 12 innings.

Ellsbury becomes first Red Sox to 30/30

NEW YORK -- Jacoby Ellsbury blasted a pair of solo homers against A.J. Burnett, giving him 30 home runs for the season. With the two longballs, he became the first Red Sox player ever to reach 30 homers and 30 steals in the same season. The second homer also gave Ellsbury exactly 100 RBI for the season.

While the rest of his team has been falling apart, Ellsbury has enjoyed a torrid September. With a 3-for-4 day in Game 1 of the double header, the outfielder is now hitting .374 with a 1.093 OPS and six homers this month.

Buchholz to pitch instrux game in Florida

NEW YORK -- Clay Buchholz will fly to Fort Myers on Sunday afternoon so that he can pitch an inning in a Florida Instructional League game on Monday. That, in turn, might leave him in position to pitch in a major league game for the Red Sox on Wednesday in Baltimore, though the team also acknowledges that it's uncertain whether Buchholz will indeed be able to pitch in the majors again this year.

The Instructional League setting is less than ideal, as Buchholz will be facing mostly hitters with little or no professional experience, most of whom have not played above A-ball. Even so, it will allow Buchholz to pitch in a game setting in anticipation of a potential big league game.

"We really want him to pitch [Monday]," said Sox manager Terry Francona. "Stating the obvious, [Josh] Beckett’s throwing tomorrow [against the Orioles], we’re playing a huge game. I don’t know how we can ensure he’s going to throw...
