Beckett to return to Boston, unsure of injury

TORONTO -- Josh Beckett will return to Boston Tuesday to have his right ankle examined after leaving the Red Sox' 1-0, 11-inning loss to the Blue Jays in the fourth inning due to what was classified as a sprained ankle.

Beckett explained after the game that he didn't feel any problems with the ankle until his second-to-last pitch, and was unsure how the ailment came about. The starter was pulled from the game with two outs in the fourth inning and Brett Lawrie at bat after stiffening up on his 58th, and final, pitch of the afternoon.

"It's always concerning. That's my power leg," Beckett said. "The way I pitch I don't think I can cut my leg off, I don't think I could pitch."

The starter later added, "I've never had anything like this. I could wake up tomorrow and feel like playing basketball. We'll just see."

Beckett said that he fell in the bullpen trying to take a shirt off, although he was unsure if...

Lawrie walkoff sinks Sox in Toronto
By: DJ Bean

Rookie Brett Lawrie hit a walk-off homer off Dan Wheeler in the bottom of the 11th Monday to give the Blue Jays a 1-0 win over the Red Sox in Toronto. Though the Sox lost the game, the scoreboard may not have indicated the biggest loss on the day for the team.

Starting pitcher Josh Beckett had an early exit due to injury, as he left the game with a sprained right ankle after racking up six strikeouts over 3 2/3 innings of shutout ball. He was replaced by Alfredo Aceves, who also went 3 2/3 innings without allowing a run. 

Wheeler came in to start the 11th after a nerve-racking, 27-pitch inning from Jonathan Papelbon. The closer loaded the bases in a 10th inning in which he also had a botched pickoff attempt, but a pair of three-pitch strikeouts bailed him out, including three straight fastballs to Adam Lind with the bags full and two down. 

The Red Sox stranded seven runners in scoring position on the day, including a double from...

Beckett leaves game with sprained ankle

TORONTO  -- Josh Beckett left the Red Sox' game with the Blue Jays with two outs in the fourth inning with a sprained right ankle. Beckett pulled up slightly when making a pitch to Toronto second baseman Brett Lawrie, who had worked a 2-and-2 count. The Red Sox starter, who was replaced by Alfredo Aceves, had allowed three hits with no runs, striking out six and walking one. He threw 58 pitches, 41 of which were for strikes

Prior to the game Red Sox manager Terry Francona had said the Sox were hoping to build in one day of extra rest for Beckett in the next two times through the rotation.

We will pass along more information as it becomes available.

Belichick: 'Ton of respect' led to his film

FOXBORO -- Bill Belichick said Monday he looks forward to seeing the upcoming two-part NFL Network documentary - "A Football Life: Bill Belichick" - shot in 2009 by NFL Films. 

"When they approached us on it, it was the Patriots' 50th season, my 35th season in the NFL, so it was a little bit of a unique situation and so, organizationally, they captured the team's 50th year along with what I did," Belichick said. "They really did it in a way that was not intrusive. They didn't really know what they were going to do with it. They just did it to archive it and do it in a historical way and there were no set plans on what to do with it, how to present it or anything like that. That evolved, I guess, later on."

The documentary captures Belichick on the field and off, showing him with the team and also relaxing at his vacation home on Nantucket. 

"I have a ton of respect for NFL Films, Steve...
