FORT MYERS, Fla. — Red Sox pitchers allowed 12 hits — including a home run to former Sox Jeff Bailey — as the Twins took an 8-4 win in the teams' Grapefruit League opener Sunday night at Hammond Stadium.
Hideki Okajima suffered through the worst outing for the Red Sox, allowing four runs on five hits over an inning. Dan Wheeler allowed the Bailey homer, while Brandon Duckworth succumbed to two runs on three hits in pitching the eighth for the Sox.

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Josh Beckett finished his first start of spring training with mixed results, allowing a run on two hits over two innings while throwing 23 pitches (15 strikes) against the Twins Sunday night at Hammond Stadium.
"I think there are certain things you want to work on. I felt like I threw some good changeups when I was behind in the count. They weren't strikes, but they were something else I tried to do," said Beckett, who allowed his run when Jason Repko tripled to drive in Chris Parmelee, who had doubled.

The second inning wasn't as good as the first, but the first inning maybe wasn't as good as it appeared. I felt like there were some things I needed to work on in the first inning I think I might have gotten away with. They are small samples, and...
INDIANAPOLIS -- According to a report from the Boston Herald, the Patriots have asked offensive lineman Nick Kaczur to take a "massive pay cut" from his $3.4 million salary, and that given his unwillingness to do so, the Patriots are "going to have to" cut the 31-year-old.
Kaczur has played his entire career with the Patriots since they chose him with the 100th overall pick of the 2005 NFL draft. The native of Brantford, Ontario, missed all of last season with a back injury.

"It is what it is. I think at this point I'm tired of it. I just want to move on," Jenks said. "I'm a Red Sox now and that's all I want to worry about. From this point on, I have nothing else to say. It is what is, that's all I have to say. He's going to have his say, whatever. I'm a Red Sox, that's all that matters."
