Pedroia doubles to run streak to 21

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, after going hitless in his first three at-bats, lofted a double off the base of the Fenway Park scoreboard in left-center to extend his career-best hitting streak to 21 games. The ball appeared to be catchable, but Mariners left fielder Mike Carp pulled up short of the Wall, only to see the ball clank off the scoreboard about five feet from the ground.

Pedroia then came around to score on an Adrian Gonzalez single to give the Sox an 11-3 lead in the sixth inning. In the month of July, Pedroia leads the majors with a .407 average and 33 hits. He also tops the Ameircan League this month with 20 runs.

Wakefield reaches 2,000 strikeouts

Red Sox knuckleballer Tim Wakefield reached another milestone in his career Sunday when he whiffed Mike Carp to end the sixth inning for the 2,000th strikeout of his remarkable career. 

Wakefield joined Roger Clemens (2,590) as the only two Red Sox pitchers in history to reach the milestone. Wakefield also became just the 10th pitcher in history to strike out 2,000 with one American League team.

Francona: Lester 'completely pain-free'

The Red Sox will be watching Jon Lester very closely on Monday night when he comes off the disabled list and returns to action after missing three weeks with a strained muscle in his left side. 

"The biggest thing will be watching his workload," Red Sox skipper Terry Francona said of Lester, who was 10-3 with a 3.31 ERA in 18 starts this season before pulling his left lat on July 5 against the Blue Jays. "He's come through this about as well as you could hope. He was completely pain-free when he started throwing, and that's what we wanted. Now, it's just being able to build up endurance. If you go out and let a guy throw 120 [pitches] the first time out, he's going to be sore, so we don't want to do that."

It's somewhat apppropriate that Lester is returning to action Monday night in the series opener against the Royals at Fenway Park, as he hurled his no-hitter against them on May 19, 2008.

Report: Agreement to end lockout reached

According to ESPN.com, sources from both the NFL Players Association and the NFL owners have reached an agreement on what were the remaining disputed points in negotiating a new collective bargaining agreement, paving the way for a new 10-year labor deal. A majority vote is still needed from the players, but that, according to the report, appears to be a formality.

The players reps are flying into Washington D.C. Sunday in preparation of voting on the new deal, having already started plans for a Monday press conference to announce the agreement.

If the NFLPA's executive committee accepts the new deal, as expected, some training camps will be scheduled to begin Wednesday, with others kicking off Friday. There is also a thought that there could be a vote to recertify the union as early as Friday.
