Report: Marchand to have disciplinary hearing

Brad Marchand will have a disciplinary hearing over the phone tomorrow with Brendan Shanahan, according to the Boston Globe.

Marchand hit Sami Salo low on Saturday, resulting in a clipping penalty, a five-minute major and a game misconduct. According to Vancouver GM Mike Gillis, Salo suffered a concussion.

"Dirty play by a dirty player," Gillis told Vancouver's The Province.

Marchand said after the game that he believed he hit Salo above the knees. Marchand hit Vancouver's Daniel Sedin in a similar fashion during last season's Stanley Cup Finals and was not penalized.

Red Sox score 7 in 7th to beat Rangers 9-4

BOSTON (AP)  Dustin Pedroia waved home the tiebreaking run on a wild pitch, then singled in two more during Boston's seven-run seventh inning on Wednesday night and the Red Sox beat the Texas Rangers 9-4 for their third straight victory.

Chris Sale (5-2) struck out six, falling short in his attempt to become the first pitcher in baseball's modern era to strike out at least 10 batters in nine straight games in one season. He allowed three earned runs, six hits and a walk in 7 1/3 innings and received more runs of support in the seventh inning alone than in any previous game this season.

Sam Dyson (1-5) faced seven batters in relief of Martin Perez and gave up four hits, three walks - two intentional - and a wild pitch without retiring a batter. Mike Napoli homered for Texas, which has lost three of four to follow a 10-game winning streak.
