Josh Brogadir has the headlines and highlights for Sunday, July 21st:

* Hiroki Kuroda kept the Red Sox bats pretty much in check over seven innings, leading the Yankees to a 5-2 win over Boston.

The Sox hurt their own cause with a number of miscues on the base paths.

John Lackey pitched well through six innings, but in the seventh, the wheels started to fall off. Lackey was finished after 6.1 IP with four runs allowed.

* Clay Buchholz hasn't pitched in more than a month and recent steps in his recovery have been met with speed bumps.

Now, Buchholz may see Dr. Andrews to get a second opinion on his shoulder woes.

* With the trade deadline right around the corner, the Sox are considering a trade for some pitching depth.

The Red Sox had a scout watching Chicago White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy in his Saturday start against the Braves.

Peavy is a particularly interesting candidate as he has another year of control on his contract.
