runs for the first time

BALTIMORE – Johan Santanas comeback bid with the Baltimore Orioles ended Friday when the two-time Cy Young Award winner tore his Achilles tendon. The injury occurred in Florida while Santana was pitching in extended spring training. He was struck by a line drive before stumbling in pursuit of the ball. An MRI revealed a torn tendon. "The tendon is severed, and it will in effect end his season," Orioles vice-president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said. "I know the rehab is significant for these tendon injuries. Well have to get with him and speak to him. But he wont be able to pitch for the Orioles this season." The 35-year-old Santana has not pitched in the majors since 2012 with the New York Mets. The left-hander missed last season after undergoing his second major shoulder surgery, then signed a minor league contract with Baltimore in March. Santanas return appeared on course when the Orioles purchased his contract from Triple-A Norfolk on Monday and placed him on the major league disabled list. "He was pitching well," Duquette said. "The last time out he had his velocity and he was able to back-door his slider. I think he had eight strikeouts and no walks, so he was right on schedule. After (Friday), he was going to come up and join the major league team, and we were going to continue the rehab in (Double-A) Bowie." Now, however, Santanas future is up in the air. "The skills are there," Duquette said. "Hes been able to rehab his arm, but now hes got another challenge." Santana broke into the majors with Minnesota in 2000. He won both his Cy Young Awards with the Twins, going 20-6 in 2004 and 19-6 in 2006. He was traded to New York before the 2008 season and signed a $137.5 million, six-year contract. But injuries limited him to less than four full seasons on the mound with the Mets, and his record got progressively worse – 16-7, 13-9, 11-9, 6-9. It was uncertain if Santana could return after his second shoulder surgery, but Duquette thought it was worth taking a chance. Now he and the Orioles are left looking for a Plan B. "Its unfortunate," Duquette said. "We were looking for Johans leadership and also his pedigree from being a winning pitcher. Now well have to look for that capability somewhere else. "I was looking at it like a midseason acquisition or trade. We invested in the rehab and we invested in the salary, and of course we wouldnt have had to trade a player. Unfortunately it didnt work. Sometimes you can plan and do things right, and they just dont work out." Cheap Authentic Shoes Wholesale .

The CFL club is making the move after holding its camp and regular-season practices at the University of Toronto campus in Mississauga, Ont.BOSTON – Detroits Rick Porcello would rather forget the last time he pitched in Fenway Park. Hes likely to remember his outing Saturday night. Porcello pitched eight solid innings to win his sixth straight start and the red-hot Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox 6-1. It was the 10th consecutive road win for the Tigers, who are a majors best 26-12. Detroit won for the 14th time in 17 games. In his last Fenway start, the right-hander was tagged for nine runs and seven hits – three homers – in five innings during a 20-4 loss to the Red Sox on Sept. 4. "I got beat around. Thats the way it is," he said. "Everybody gets their butt kicked and the difference is how well you can rebound from it." On Saturday, Porcello (7-1) gave up one run on six hits, striking out four and walking one. It was the fifth time in six starts hes allowed two or fewer runs. Miguel Cabrera had a homer, RBI single and one of Detroits six doubles, and Victor Martinez added a pair of singles. "Weve been playing some good baseball right now," Cabrera said. "Were aggressive and focused on what were going to do on the field and getting it done." Tigers manager Brad Ausmus felt Porcello had good command of all of his pitches. "That was probably his best outing," he said. "His fastball is always the key, but he threw good curveballs and some changeups." Xander Bogaerts had a solo homer and Mike Napoli three singles for the slumping Red Sox, who have scored just one run in the first two games of the three-game series. Boston lost the opener 1-0 Friday. "Early runs, we find ourselves behind," Boston manager John Farrell said. "One real scoring threat in the fourth inning and we come up empty. That was pretty much the story here tonight." John Lackey (5-3) gave up more than two runs for the first time in five starts, allowing six – five earned – on nine hits in 5 1-3 innings. He felt like he was just slightly missing in the strike zone. "Just didnt get some locations there in the fifth inning," he said. "That was pretty much the inning Id like to take bback.dddddddddddd I just didnt locate some balls in that inning for sure." Bostons David Ortiz had a single to extend his hitting streak to 10 games, going 19 for 40 with five homers and eight RBIs during that stretch. With Detroit leading 1-0 in the third, Cabrera hit a fly ball down the right field line, hooking it around the Pesky Pole about 10 to 15 feet and a couple of rows into the seats. "It was lucky shot. Right on the line," Cabrera said, smiling. "In other ballparks its a fly." In the fourth, Torii Hunter had an RBI double and scored on Cabreras single to make it 4-0. The Red Sox were scoreless for 14 straight innings until Bogaerts homered into the seats above the Green Monster leading off the fifth. Rajai Davis RBI double made it 5-1 and chased Lackey in the sixth. Davis scored on Ian Kinslers sacrifice fly. The Tigers loaded the bases with no outs against Lackey in the second, but only managed one run on Alex Avilas fielders choice grounder. Bostons slumbering offence loaded the bases with two outs in the fourth, but A.J. Pierzynski grounded weakly to second. NOTES: The Red Sox placed 3B Will Middlebrooks on the 15-day disabled list before the game for the second time this season. This time, he was sidelined with a fractured right index finger he hurt in Fridays loss. He missed 19 games in April with a strained right calf. To take his place on the roster, the team recalled INF Brock Holt from Triple-A Pawtucket. Holt played third and batted ninth, going 0 for 3. … Switch-hitting Tigers DH Martinez didnt even try to mess with facing the shift his first time up, pushing a soft grounder into left field against Lackey on the first pitch he saw. He came in with excellent career numbers against the right-hander, hitting .407 (11 for 27). … Boston 1B Napoli made a nice catch on Cabreras foul pop, leaning over the railing and into the first row of seats and Dustin Pedroia made a diving stab of Martinezs liner. … Tigers RHP Anibal Sanchez (0-2, 3.13 ERA) faces RHP Jake Peavy (1-1, 3.94) in a nationally televised Sunday night series finale.
