The Boston Red Sox, who lost an opportunity to move ahead of the Tornoto Blue Jays by dropping a 5-2 decision to the New York Yankees Saturday, got more bad news after the game when it was announced ace Roger Clemens would not pitch Sunday.

Clemens, who has been sidelined for three weeks with tendinitis in his right shoulder, was scheduled to make his return Sunday against the Yankees. But Boston Manager Joe Morgan said Clemens was still suffering pain in the shoulder and would be scratched.
