SportsNet Central's Bob Neumeier recaps a day in which the Red Sox won in Baltimore and their manager received another vote of confidence from ownership and things got heated on the Patriots practice field.

The Red Sox salvaged the final game of their series in Baltimore with a 6-3 victory behind the strong pitching of Clay Buchholz (11-3).

Red Sox team president and CEO Larry Lucchino publicly backed embattled manager Bobby Valentine once again, telling WEEI that Bobby V. would remain the manager for the rest of the season.

At Patriots training camp, coach Bill Belichick tossed Julian Edelman and Niko Koutouvides out of practice after their post-play scuffle.
