Memorable night at Fenway

UNDATED (AP) — The Boston Red Sox beat the Oakland Athletics 4-2 on Friday, but the final score was among the least important aspects of the game.

A woman was carried out of Fenway Park after being struck by a broken bat during the second inning. She was bleeding from the head as she was tended to in the stands between home plate and the third base dugout.

She was taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries that police called life threatening.

The game resumed, allowing Oakland reliever Pat Venditte (vehn-DIH’-tee) to become the majors’ first ambidextrous pitcher since Greg Harris with the Expos in 1995. Venditte allowed one hit in two shutout innings after entering in the bottom of the seventh. He was recalled from the minors earlier Friday.

Red Sox starter Wade Miley allowed a pair of runs and six hits in 7 1/3 innings to pick up the victory. Dustin Pedroia (peh-DROY’-uh) was 3-for-4 with two runs scored as the Red Sox ended the Athletics’ four-game winning streak.

Also in the majors:

— Stephen Drew hit a pair of homers and Mark Teixeira (the-SHEHR’-uh) added a two-run blast while the New York Yankees were building an 8-1 lead in an 8-7 win over the Los Angeles Angels. Alex Rodriguez went 4-for-5 and laced a run-scoring single to pass Barry Bonds for second on the all-time RBI list.

— Avisail Garcia was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 11th, allowing the Chicago White Sox to walk away with a 4-3 comeback win over Detroit. Garcia also homered in the seventh and Adam LaRoche tied it with a solo blast in the ninth before the White Sox dealt the Tigers their eighth consecutive loss.

— Carlos Martinez was sharp in the St. Louis Cardinals’ 2-1 win over the Dodgers in Los Angeles, yielding a run and three hits with 11 strikeouts in seven innings. But Martinez and the Redbirds trailed 1-0 in the eighth until Kolten Wong hit a game-tying single and Matt Carpenter lifted a sacrifice fly.

— Buster Posey hit the go-ahead home run in the seventh inning to help San Francisco beat Philadelphia 5-4 and end a five-game losing streak. Matt Duffy and Justin Maxwell also went deep for the Giants, who withstood round-trippers by Ryan Howard and Maikel (my-KEHL’) Franco.

— San Diego rode solo homers by Will Venable, Will Middlebrooks and Derek Norris to a 6-2 win at Cincinnati. Tyson Ross improved to 4-0 lifetime against the Reds by allowing two runs in five innings before he was taken out following a lengthy rain delay.

Cavs’ Irving has fractured knee cap, out 3-4 months

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Cleveland Cavaliers have spent time without Kyrie Irving during the postseason due to knee and ankle injuries. They will play the remainder of the NBA Finals without their All-Star guard.

Irving has been diagnosed with a fractured left knee cap that will require surgery. He limped off the court with two minutes left in OT after scoring 23 points in a 108-100 loss to Golden State in Game 1 of the series. Recovery time is projected to be three to four months.

Matthew Dellavedova will replace Irving in the starting lineup. The second-year guard is averaging 6.5 points, 2.7 assists and 21 minutes during the postseason.

The Cavs already are without Kevin Love due to a dislocated shoulder.


Day 13

PARIS (AP) — Stan Wawrinka (vah-VRIHN’-kuh) has advanced to the French Open men’s final, but his opponent won’t be determined until Saturday.

Top seed Novak Djokovic (NOH’-vak JOH’-kuh-vich) was leading No. 3 Andy Murray 6-3, 6-3, 5-7, 3-3 when the match was initially halted because of an impending storm. The rest of the match was postponed to Saturday when the rain did arrive minutes later.

Djokovic is trying to complete a career Grand Slam.

The eighth-seeded Wawrinka defeated France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3, 6-7 (1), 7-6 (3), 6-4 in Friday’s opening semifinal. Wawrinka served 15 aces, hit 60 winners and saved 16 of 17 break points to reach the final, one year after a first-round exit at Roland Garros.

The completion of the Djokovic-Murray match will precede Saturday’s women’s final between top seed Serena Williams and No. 13 Lucie Safarova.


Lingmerth in front

DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — David Lingmerth will be the pace-setter heading into the third round of the Memorial.

Dufner’s 67 included an eagle and a hole-in-one on the par-3 16th hole. He’s one stroke ahead of Andy Sullivan and Ryan Moore.

Phil Mickelson is 4-under after two rounds.

Busch wins pole

LONG POND, Pa. (AP) — Kurt Busch turned a lap at 177.599 mph and won the pole at Pocono Raceway in a bizarre qualifying session that saw five cars fail to complete a lap in the final round. It was the third pole of the season for Busch, and the 19th of his career.

Denny Hamlin bobbled and lost control of the No. 11 as the qualifying clock ticked down to bring out the red flag. NASCAR scrubbed the rest of qualifying, preventing Hamlin, Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch, Joey Logano and Kasey Kahne (kayn) from recording a lap time.

Carl Edwards joins Kurt Busch on the front row. Martin Truex Jr., Jeff Gordon and Kevin Harvick complete the top five.


Power wins open wheel qualifying

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — There’s IndyCar racing under the lights in Texas Saturday night. Will Power starts from the pole for the third straight year after qualifying with a two-lap average speed of 218.519 miles per hour.

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins first-round draft pick DeVante Parker has undergone foot surgery and will miss the rest of the team’s offseason workouts. He is expected to be ready for the beginning of the regular season.

The receiver from Louisville was the 14th overall pick in this year’s draft and is expected to see significant playing time this season. He missed the first seven games of his senior season last year with a foot injury but caught 43 passes for 855 yards and five touchdowns in the final six games.

Will there be a Triple Crown winner?

NEW YORK (AP) — American Pharoah took a final gallop around Belmont Park Friday morning before he attempts to win the Belmont Stakes and become the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years. The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner looked fresh and ready for his morning run but was held to an easy lap around the 1 1/2-mile oval.

The 3-year-colt has had a jog and two gallops since arriving in Queens on Tuesday. American Pharoah faces seven rivals Saturday in his bid to become the 12th Triple Crown winner and first since Affirmed in 1978.
