Red Sox blank the Braves, win 1-0

Tim Wakefield allowed just three hits in six shutout innings of work to lead the Red Sox past the Braves in Atlanta, 1-0. Wakefield (10-3) became the third pitcher in the American League to reach double digits in victories. Wakefield was followed by scoreless work from Manny Delcarmen (1.1 innings), Justin Masterson (0.2 innings) and Jonathan Papelbon (a scoreless ninth for his 18th save).

 

The Sox plated their lone run with a two-out raly in the top of the sixth. After Kevin Youkilis and David Ortiz walked, Mark Kotsay (subbing for Jason Bay on Saturday) singled to center to score Youkilis with the game's only run.

Recchi: Boston Bruins are top choice for next season

Boston Bruins winger Mark Recchi was in Montreal for the NHL Draft this weekend, and told the Inside Hockey Radio Show Saturday that the Bruins are his top choice as an unrestricted free agent. B's GM Peter Chiarelli has also indicated that he'd like to have Recchi back in the Boston fold after showing he's still got plenty to offer in terms of offense and leadership. It's expected the Bruins will address Recchi and Boston's other UFAs after making a decision on RFAs like Phil Kessel, Matt Hunwick and Byron Bitz. 
“We talked to Peter and he just left me a message a few minutes ago," said Recchi to the Inside Hockey Radio Show on Saturday. "The situation with Boston (Chiarelli) has got some things to figure out cap-wise. But Boston is my first choice and I’m going to give them every opportunity in the world to figure things out, so I can go back there. They treated...

Bay sits, Lugo in the lineup

For just the second time this year, Jason Bay is not in the starting lineup. The left-fielder gets a breather, with Mark Kotsay in the lineup against Braves starter Javier Vazquez. Julio Lugo also gets a day at short in place of Nick Green. With Tim Wakefield on the hill, George Kottaras will be behind the plate.

Bruins select Ryan Button with third round pick, Lane MacDermid in fourth

MONTREAL -- Without a second round pick, the Bruins selected Alberta native and defenseman prospect Ryan Button with the 86th overall selection in the third round. The 6-foot, 185-pound had a breakout season for Prince Albert of the WHL in 2008-09 and finished with 37 points in 70 games last season. An Oilers fan growing up, Button comes from an athletic family with his dad a triathlete and his cousin an Olympic-level swimmer for the Canadian National Team.
In the fourh round, the Bruins selected big left winger Lane MacDermid from the Windsor Spitfires. MacDermid has the bloodlines as the son of former NHLer Paul MacDermid and he has the size at 6-foot-3, 204-pounds. The lefty shooting MacDermid had 15 goals and 20 assists in 64 games for both the Owen Sound Attack and the Spitfires while splitting the season with both junior teams in 2008-09. MacDermid is known as something of a tough guy in junior circles, and is expected to fit right into the...

Red Sox sign fourth-, eighth-round draft picks

The Red Sox have signed fourth-round draft pick Jeremy Hazelbaker ($191,700 bonus), an outfielder from Ball State University, and eight-round selection Shannon Wilkerson ($100,000), an outfielder from Augusta State. With those two signings now officially concluded, the Sox have signed four of their top 10 selections from this year's draft. Hazelbaker and Wilkerson have joined second-round pick Alex Wilson in Lowell, while fifth-rounder Seth Schwindenhammer is in the Rookie Level Gulf Coast League.

 

The Sox are confident that first-round pick Reymond Fuentes will also sign at or near the Major League Baseball recommended slot signing bonus in the near future, in a timetable that would permit the outfielder to play this summer in the Gulf Coast League.
