Beltre OK, 'will probably play' Monday

Adrian Beltre will likely return to the Red Sox lineup on Monday night in the opener of a three-game series against the Orioles after getting a clean bill of health on his left wrist, injured in Saturday night's loss to the Blue Jays.

 

"He was checked out over at Mass General," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said following Sunday's 6-0 win. "He got an MRI, a CT scan, x-rays. He got a clean bill of health and he'll probably play [Monday]."

 

Francona didn't make out the lineup card until an hour before Sunday's game to keep open the possibility of playing the third baseman who entered Sunday with 28 homers and 98 RBIs and a team-leading .329 average. Beltre was eventually held out in favor of rookie Yamaico Navarro, who made his first career big league start at third base.

Beltre gets 'clean bill of health'

Red Sox third baseman Adrian Beltre, who missed Sunday's game after injuring his wrist while trying to make a diving play in Saturday's game, received an MRI, a CT-scan and X-rays at Mass General on Sunday afternoon.

Revis out with hamstring injury

Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis was ruled out for the remainder of the Patriots-Jets game after apparently re-aggravating his hamstring while covering Randy Moss on the wide receiver's 34-yard touchdown catch from Tom Brady with 53 seconds remaining in the first half. The play was the final time the Jets' defense was on the field in the first half, with Revis not joining the unit for their initial series in the second half. Revis had primarily drawn coverage on Moss throughout the first two quarters, ending up with the coverage on the Patriots' wideout on 22 of the Patriots' 34 plays which didn't include a Pats' punt. Prior to the TD catch, Moss had one catch against Revis, having been thrown to four times with the cornerback covering. The Patriots carreid a 14-10 into halftime.

Fond farewell: Lester wins 18th

In what was likely his final home start this season, Jon Lester allowed just four hits and struck out four while Victor Martinez and J.D. Drew homered to lead the Red Sox over the Blue Jays, 6-0, Sunday at Fenway Park.

 

Lester [18-8] also walked four but pitched out of several jams to lower his ERA to 3.07 on the season. He needs two wins in his final two starts to become the first Red Sox lefty 20-game winner since Mel Parnell in 1953.

 

Martinez broke a scoreless tie in the fourth when he homered to right on an 0-2 pitch from starter and loser Shaun Marcum [12-8]. The Red Sox broke the game open in the next inning when they scored five times to chase Marcum and race out to a 6-0 lead. J.D. Drew led the explosion with a two-run homer to deep right, his 19th of the season.

 

Lester, who threw 112 pitches, 68 strikes, is scheduled to start this Saturday at Yankee Stadium and the following Thursday at...

Report: Mankins will play last six weeks

New England's Pro Bowl offensive lineman Logan Mankins will return to the Patriots in time to play the final six games and get an "accrued NFL season," according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Mankins, a restricted free agent, has been looking for a new deal somewhere in the neighborhood of the contracts signed by Jets center Nick Mangold (seven years, $55 million) and Saints offensive lineman Jahri Evans (seven year, $56.7 million). According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Mankins and the Patriots were close to a deal recently, but things fell apart soon after when Mankins refused to apologize publicly to Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
