It's sad seeing Tim Lincecum scuffle through this outing for the Angels. He already has six walks in the fourth inning, has allowed four hits and a couple more hard-hit outs. His ERA is 8.45 and I'm not sure there is much incentive for the Angels to keep running him out there.

Terry Collins also noted that Jose Reyes may need to be placed on the disabled list. Reyes has been out since Game 1 of doubleheader on Tuesday with a strained intercostal muscle on his left side.

Terry Collins addressed the players after the game, telling the team they needed to keep things light. He figures putting so much pressure on themselves is hurting their run production.

As expected, Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel will make a minor-league rehab assignment Saturday for Triple-A Pawtucket. Kimbrel, who had minor surgery July 11 to clean up a torn meniscus in his left knee, is expected to start the game and pitch one inning. He will be reevaluated Sunday, and if all goes well, he could rejoin the Red Sox next week in Seattle.
