Houston Astro shortstop Julio Lugo was demoted Thursday, hours after he was arrested and charged with hitting his wife in the face and slamming her head on a car hood. Lugo was arrested after Wednesday night's game at Minute Maid Park. He was freed on $50,000 bond Thursday after spending the night in jail. Lugo's wife, Mabel, was treated for minor injuries at a hospital and released. The Astros designated Lugo for assignment, meaning they have 10 days to release, trade or send him to the minors.

One day after being victimized by the greatest comeback in Baltimore Orioles history, the Boston Red Sox staged an improbable rally of their own. The Red Sox used a four-run ninth inning to pull even, Julio Lugo singled in the tiebreaking run in the 11th and Jonathan Papelbon became Boston's career saves leader by closing out a 6-5 victory over the Orioles on Wednesday. Papelbon got three outs in the 11th for his 133rd save with the Red Sox, breaking the team record held by Bob Stanley.

That barely broken-in first baseman's mitt tucked in the corner of Jeff Kent's locker? He probably won't need it after all. Plans for the Dodgers' slugger to be activated from the disabled list this weekend were put on hold because he felt discomfort in his left oblique muscle after taking batting practice the last three days. "It's a dull pull," he said. "I still feel it when I tie my shoes, put on my underwear or lift my suitcase."
