e defending World Series champions

BOSTON -- So much for Bostons mini surge of offence. The Red Sox managed just two hits and were beaten by the Chicago White Sox 4-0 on Monday night, Bostons sixth loss in seven games. Scott Carroll pitched 6 2-3 innings of one-hit ball, and Dayan Viciedo hit a three-run homer off Clay Buchholz in the fourth as Boston was shut out for the ninth time this season and tied its season-low hit output. Adam Dunn also homered off Buchholz, but he recovered well from the rocky start and kept the Red Sox in the game. All four runs came on home runs as Buchholz (3-5) allowed five hits, struck out a season-high seven and walked one. "Its been real frustrating, especially tonight. Buchholz threw a good game," said Boston leadoff hitter Brock Holt, who went 0-for-4. "We werent able to get anything going. Two hits. Two singles." A.J. Pierzynskis third-inning single was the lone hit off Carroll. Jackie Bradley Jr. singled off Javy Guerra to lead off the eighth for the only other Red Sox hit. Boston entered Monday having scored 22 runs in its last four games, but allowed 32 during the same span. Buchholz was willing to talk about the mistakes he made to Dunn in the second and Viciedo in the fourth, but stood up for his teammates when asked about the lack of run support. The Red Sox scored just one run in his previous start, a 2-1 loss to the Cubs in Boston. "Im done talking about the offence. Its not like theyre out there not trying or anything," he said. "Its just not working right now. Im not going to answer any more questions about our offence." Making the eighth -- and best -- start of his career, Carroll (3-5) walked two and struck out five while shutting down the defending World Series champions. Dunn hit a solo homer in the second inning and doubled and scored on Viciedos home run in the fourth. The start of the game was delayed by 39 minutes because of severe weather moving through the area. There were two brief but torrential downpours during the game that sent fans scurrying but didnt stop play. NOTES: Carroll allowed seven runs on 10 hits and three walks in six innings in his previous start. ... The Red Sox won a managers challenge at first base even though replays showed that Jim Joyces original call, that Mike Napolis foot came off the base, was correct. ... The Red Sox activated 1B/OF Mike Carp from the 15-day disabled list and optioned INF Jonathan Herrera to Triple-A Pawtucket. ... The Red Sox fell to 2-5 against Chicago teams, having been swept by the Cubs at home last week in a three-game interleague series. Trumaine Johnson Jersey . - Whether its because of her improved play or the reason for it, Michelle Wie appears as comfortable on and off the golf course as at any time in her career. Spencer Long Jets Jersey . -- Adrian Peterson remained in a walking boot to treat a high ankle sprain on his left leg on Wednesday, and coach Leslie Frazier said he will not play on Sunday against Atlanta if he cant hit the practice field in the next two days. -- David Freese is starting to pick up his run production, which is something the Los Angeles Angels have been waiting half a season to see. Sam Darnold Jersey . -- Syracuse was dangerously close to letting another less talented opponent pull off the upset when C. Trumaine Johnson Jets Jersey .

Brian Giontas agent Steve Bartlett told La Presse on Tuesday that the Montreal Canadiens want to keep their captain - an unrestricted free agent on July 1 - in the fold, while sources tell the paper that the two sides will start talks this week.Poole Pirates continued their good start to the 2016 Elite League season with a home win over Lakeside Hammers. A run of maximums for Poole in Heat 11, 12 and 13 opened up a 20-point lead with just two heats to go after a close start to the meeting. Krzysztof Buczkowski led the way for Poole scoring 13+1, with support from Brady Kurtz who notched up 10+1 while Andreas Jonsson racked up 10 for the Hammers.Poole skipper Davey Watt scored just two and he said: You dont beat a quality side, like Lakeside sure are, without being a good side yourself and thankfully for me the lads are proving that they are that, even though I am not.The win continues Pooles 100 per cent start to the season with victories in their opening two meetings of the campaign.Poole held an eight-point lead after Heat 10 as Lakeside remained in contention, but the home side pulled clear over the final five heats to secure an emphatic win.ddddddddddddThe Hammers remain top of the Elite League and coach Kelvin Tatum said: For 10 heats we were right in the meeting and we were fighting really hard, and Ive got to say that again we showed terrific resilience.It was just the three 5-1s in quick succession which put paid to it, and Poole really flexed their muscles towards the end of the meeting.The Pirates lost just one meeting at Wimborne Road last season on their way to the Elite League title.Not many teams are going to get anything from Poole if they ride like that, but I have to say I didnt quite think the scoreline did us justice in the end, Tatum said.
