Lowrie: 'I'll be back as soon as I can be'

PAWTUCKET -- Jed Lowrie played six innings and was hitless in three at-bats for Triple-A Pawtucket in his first game since being hit on the left knee by a pitch on Tuesday in Norfolk. Lowrie was replaced by Travis Denker in the top of the seventh of the PawSox' game against Syracuse.

“I thought Jed swung the bat fine,” Pawtucket manager Ron Johnson said. “He got a little stiff towards the end. I think a lot of that might be from not playing. He hasn’t been out there much and of course he traveled today, too. He had three at bats and we’ll go from there.”

Johnson said that Lowrie's rehab schedule will proceed on a day-by-day basis. The Pawtucket skipper said that the current plan is to have Lowrie back in the lineup on Sunday. Though he is eager to return to the major leagues after having been sidelined since mid-April due to wrist surgery, the shortstop said that he is still trying to resist rushing in his return...

Lowell to get shot Monday

Red Sox third baseman Mike Lowell said after his team's 1-0 win over the Braves that he will be receiving a Synvisc shot in his surgically-repaired right hip Monday, flying to Boston after Sunday afternoon's game in Atlanta. Lowell, who flied out to right field while pinch-hitting for Sox' starter Tim Wakefield in the seventh inning, hasn't been able to shake the discomfort he initially encountered June 18.

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.
