Source: Patriots acquire OL Ojinnaka

The Patriots have acquired offensive lineman Quinn Ojinnaka from the Falcons for undisclosed compensation, according to a report from Adam Caplan of FoxSports.com that has been confirmed via a league source by WEEI.com. Ojinnaka, 26, is a 6-foot-5, 299-pound lineman out of Syracuse who has played the last four seasons in Atlanta, and has started 12 of his 39 games with the Falcons since being chosen in the fifth round of the 2006 draft.

The Patriots have had depth problems along the offensive line in recent months, with Pro Bowl left guard Logan Mankins embroiled in a contract dispute with the team, as well as the recent news that Nick Kaczur — who moved from right tackle to left guard in hopes of filling Mankins’ spot — recently underwent back surgery and is likely to miss the 2010 season.

Ortiz: Sox will battle to the end for playoffs

David Ortiz, fresh from his first triple of the season, said the mounting injuries aren't keeping Red Sox from giving up hope on making the 2010 MLB postseason.

 

"We’re trying man, we’re trying," he said following the team's 5-0 win over the Blue Jays on Sunday that kept them 5 1/2 games behind the Rays in the American League wild card chase and 6 1/2 behind the Yankees in the AL East. The Red Sox have six games apiece left with both clubs. 

  

Ortiz was asked how the team continues to overcome injuries to Dustin Pedroia, Kevin Youkilis and Jacoby Ellsbury to remain afloat in the playoff chase. 

 

"We’re  just battling out there," he said. "Even going through all the stuff we’ve been going through this year. It’s just an on-and-off situation. That’s what it’s turned into but we just...

Lowell still anticipates retiring

After the Red Sox' 5-0 win on Sunday, Mike Lowell was asked about whether anything had changed about his expectation that the 2010 season will be his last (a prospect that he first suggested in April). Lowell suggested that he still anticipated this season as his final one.

 

"I'm pretty much set in knowing what I’m going to do after this year," said Lowell. "It will be fun. It will be fun enjoying my kids."

 

Lowell went 1-for-3 on Sunday, and is now hitting .229 with a .685 OPS on the season. He has become an everyday contributor since the season-ending injury to Kevin Youkilis, hitting .250 with two homers, seven runs batted in and a .720 OPS in August.

Singing in the rain: Sox take rubber game

Clay Buchholz continued his second-half surge toward American League Cy Young consideration with six shutout innings and Bill Hall launched another tape measure homer over the Green Monster as the Red Sox beat the Blue Jays, 5-0, Sunday at Fenway Park. The Red Sox were unable to gain ground in the playoff chase, as both the Yankees and Rays won their games. 

 

After Blue Jays starter Shaun Marcum retired the first 12 Red Sox on the days, David Ortiz broke through with a leadoff triple in the fifth. He scored on a double by Adrian Beltre. Three batters later, Hall crushed a fastball from Marcum over the Monster and onto Lansdowne Street for his 17th of the season. 

 

The game was delayed twice by rain, once at the start by an hour, 44 minutes and again, with two outs in the top of the third. Buchholz came out after the delay and showed little effect from the disruption, finishing his day with six shutout innings,...

Westmoreland to join Lowell, Greenville

Red Sox outfielder Ryan Westmoreland is set to continue his rehab with the Lowell Spinners and Greenville Drive in the coming weeks, according to Sox farm director Mike Hazen. The 20-year-old, who underwent surgery to repair a cavernous malformation of the brain stem in March, has been able to increase his baseball activities as his rehab has progressed, to the point where he has been running, throwing and taking some swings. Now, he is set to undertake those activities with Lowell (Aug. 31-Sept. 2) and Greenville (Sept. 3-6) before the end of the minor-leagues season, while also returning to the familiar team setting, which will include watching games from the dugout.
