Byrd lit up as Red Sox get smoked in Chicago

Paul Byrd allowed 10 hits and seven runs in just 2.1 innings to set in motion a blowout in Chicago, with the White Sox claiming a 12-2 victory over the Red Sox. Junichi Tazawa came on in relief of Byrd and allowed seven hits and five runs in 3.2 innings. The Red Sox were left to make wholesale changes, replacing seven of their starters by the third. (For a complete recap, click here.)
 
The Rangers won, 5-1, in Baltimore to trim Boston's edge in the wild card to two games. The Tampa Bay Rays lost against the Tigers to remain six full games back in that race.

Matsuzaka allows two runs in 4.1 innings for Pawtucket

Daisuke Matsuzaka, in his third rehab start, allowed two runs on four hits and a walk in 4.1 innings for Triple A Pawtucket on Friday. Matsuzaka threw 67 pitches, 43 for strikes. He gave up a pair of solo homers during his outing.
 
The Red Sox had anticipated that Matsuzaka would make his return to the majors against the Orioles on Sept. 9. The 28-year-old has a 7.56 ERA in his three rehab appearances. He is 1-5 with an 8.23 ERA for the Red Sox this year.

Wakefield to start on Saturday

With no new ill effects apparent one day after his side session in Tampa Bay on Thursday, Red Sox hurler Tim Wakefield is now the probable start for a return to the mound to start on Saturday against the White Sox. Wakefield has pitched just once since the All-Star break, turning in seven innings of one-run ball on Aug. 26, but a recurrence of the back discomfort stemming from a bone fragment caused his next start to be skipped. Now, it appears he is ready to return to game activity in hopes of proving that he will be ready to contribute to the Red Sox down the stretch.

Belichick: Possibility exists Pats will add another QB

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Friday afternoon “it’s a possibility, but not a certainty” that the Patriots will add another quarterback to their roster before the start of the regular season. New England cut veteran quarterback Andrew Walter Friday afternoon, one of six players let go by the Patriots in advance of Saturday’s cutdown deadline: Walter, linebacker Vinny Ciurciu, wide receiver Robert Ortiz, safety Roderick Rogers, defensive lineman Stephen Williams and offensive lineman Billy Yates were all released by the Patriots. New England has just two quarterbacks currently on their roster: Tom Brady and rookie Brian Hoyer. Hoyer, an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State, played from start to finish in Thursday night’s preseason finale against the Giants, going 18-for-25 for 242 yards and one touchdown.
