A White Sox investor who died in December left behind a valuable collection of autographed baseballs, featuring the signatures of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle, Roberto Clemente, Sandy Koufax, Carl Yastrzemski and other Hall of Famers. Now, the sons of Larry Pogofsky are suing each other for possession of the memorabilia, after one of the sons went to their mother's house and took a bunch of the balls. "It's a family matter, but somebody has done the wrong thing in this case," said the mother, Lynda Pogofsky. "I'm just a mother trying to survive."

Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz will fly to North Carolina this week for a consulation with back specialist Dr. Craig Brigham. The right-hander has been on the disabled list since June 19 (retroactive to June 17), and he suggested prior to the start of Monday's game that he is seeing little improvement in the lingering soreness in his lower back, which will keep him from returning to the mound until at least after the All-Star break.
“I’ve been sitting out for two and a half weeks and getting a little miserable with it. There’s nothing I want to do besides go out there and throw and pitch and try to help this team win. But I feel like I’ve got to be healthy to do that,” Buchholz said prior to Monday’s game. “It felt like it was getting better for a while. Started doing some treatments on it. It’s not going down, but it’s sort of staying the same. That’s what we’re looking at....

The Blue Jays erupted for seven runs in just 2 1/3 innings against Red Sox starter John Lackey, claiming an early 7-0 lead that proved too great for a furious late-innings Boston rally to surmount, as the Sox fell to the Jays, 9-7.
Lackey (5-8) saw his ERA rise to 7.47, worst in the majors among starters who have thrown at least 50 innings this year, on a day when he gave up more hits (9) than he recorded outs (7). Of the nine hits, four went for extra bases, with Aaron Hill hitting a homer, Travis Snider knocking a pair of doubles and Rajai Davis collecting another two-bagger.
Down 7-0, the Sox rallied for four runs in the fifth against Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow (5-4), with the key blow being a Jacoby Ellsbury two-run triple, the highlight of the leadoff hitter's 4-for-5 day. After the Jays tacked on single runs in the seventh and eighth innings against reliever Alfredo Aceves, the Sox then plated three more runs in the bottom of the...
Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis left Monday's game against the Blue Jays in the bottom of the fourth inning after being drilled in the upper back -- just above the numbers -- by a fastball from Toronto starter Brandon Morrow. Youkilis immediately fell to the dirt on top of home plate. Though he got up under his own power, he immediately was escorted back to the dugout. As he did so, he pointed to his upper back (just below the neck) to indicate where the pitch struck him. He was replaced at first base by pinch-runner Yamaico Navarro, who stayed in the game in the cleanup spot and at third base.
Youkilis has now been hit by nine pitches this year, second most in the American League. More information will be offered as it becomes available.
