Celtics finish off regular season with loss

The Celtics are heading into the postseason on a sour note.

The C’s dropped their regular-season finale Wednesday night, losing, 114-90, to the Raptors in Toronto. The Celts now look forward to taking on the Knicks in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Paul Pierce, who missed Monday’s practice due to illness, started but didn’t play in the second half, finishing with 11 points in 15 minutes.

Sox solve Masterson for fifth straight win

The Red Sox jumped all over one of the best pitchers in this  young season, Cleveland’s Justin Masterson, and never looked back.

The Sox saw their first five hitters of the game reach base on the way to a three-run first inning. When it was all said and done at Progressive Field, the Red Sox had come away with a 6-3 win over the Indians on Wednesday night.

The win was the fifth straight victory for the Red Sox (10-4), the longest such streak since June 16-21, 2012. The Sox are six games over .500 for the first time since 2011.

The first-inning runs were the first given up by Masterson in 19 innings, with the former Red Sox hurler having not previously allowed an opponent to cross the plate since April 2. The 15 hits by the Red Sox matched a season high, having pounded out an equal amount in their April 7 win in...
