Pats work out ex-Steeler Bruce Davis

WEEI.com has confirmed via a league source that the Patriots have worked out former Pittsburgh linebacker Bruce Davis. A third-round pick out of UCLA in 2008, the 24-year-old Davis played a limited role on special teams last season for the Steelers, seeing action in five games with Pittsburgh. As a collegian, he had impressive numbers with the Bruins, finishing his college career with 29 sacks, second most in school history. The 6-foot-3, 252-pound Davis is the son of former Oakland offensive tackle Bruce Sr., who won two Super Bowl rings with the Raiders.

Red Sox finally clinch wild card

Just two hours after losing their fifth straight game, the Red Sox finally clinched the American League wild card berth at 12:50 a.m. ET Wednesday morning when the Los Angeles Angels beat the Texas Rangers, 5-2, at Angel Stadium. The Red Sox had a chance to clinch earlier in the evening but their dramatic comeback against Toronto fell short in an 8-7 loss at Fenway. Some Red Sox players and staff actually stayed around at Fenway Park to celebrate the club's sixth playoff berth in seven seasons. The Red Sox will play the Angels in the American League Division Series next week, with the first two games in California. For full coverage, visit the Full Count blog.

Lind on Pap: He said he didn't mean to

Adam Lind said he has no hard feelings after Jonathan Papelbon drilled him with a 94 mph fastball in the ninth inning, after the Toronto designated hitter drilled three homers in his first four at-bats of the night. "He was just trying to get me out, trying to hit his spot. I've been pitched there a lot, so he just missed his spot," Lind said. "He just said he didn't mean to. He said it twice. I kind of know people who know him and he's a really nice guy." Lind became the first visiting player since Frank Thomas in 1996 to hit three homers at Fenway Park in Toronto's 8-7 win over the Red Sox in a game that delayed wild card celebrations at Fenway Park.

Red Sox rally but fall short of clinching, fall to Jays, 8-7

Kevin Youkilis struck out looking with the potential tying and winning runs on base in the bottom of the ninth as the Red Sox fell to the Blue Jays, 8-7 at Fenway Park, failing to clinch the A.L. wild card. Adam Lind became the first opposing player since Frank Thomas in 1996 to belt three homers in a game at Fenway as the Blue Jays built an 8-2 lead heading into the bottom of the eighth. Clay Buchholz started for the Sox and allowed a career-high five homers and seven runs. But the Red Sox, who had hit into four double plays, including one in the eighth, rallied in dramatic style with two outs. Youkilis and David Ortiz started the five-run outburst with back-to-back doubles. After a walk to Jason Bay, J.D. Drew followed with a long three-run homer to right-center to cut the deficit to one heading into the ninth. For more, visit the Full Count blog.
