Doc: Bradley out, Ray in for Game 6

PHILADELPHIA -- As expected, the Celtics will not have Avery Bradley available as they try to close out the Sixers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Bradley did not take part in the shootaround Wednesday morning and could not get himself to the point of being ready for the game in warmups. Bradley missed Game 5 Monday with a left shoulder injury that was re-aggravated in the third quarter of Game 4 Friday night in Philadelphia. 

"We keep saying day-to-day but we really don't know," coach Doc Rivers said an hour before Game 6.

Ray Allen, meanwhile, will play but Rivers said he is clearly limited by his right ankle sprain, that he reaggravated on Monday night in the Game 5 win. 

Rivers also said Greg Stiemsma is ready to go off the bench despite two sore feet.

Bard: 'I don't feel like myself out there'

BALTIMORE -- Starter Daniel Bard, in the wake of earning the victory in a 6-5 Red Sox victory over the Orioles, said that he remains confident in his abilities on the mound and in his mental approach to starting. At the same time, while he limited Baltimore to two runs but permitted four walks while striking out two, he acknowledged that his mechanics are out of whack and that, as a consequence, he is struggling through his outings.

Bard now has 29 walks and 28 strikeouts this year, a startling ratio for a pitcher who was a dominant presence as a reliever.

"I don’t feel like myself out there pitching right now,” he acknowledged. “Mentally, I feel good, I’m throwing pitches with conviction, physically my mechanics are just a little out of whack and not in sync.”

Still, at a time when he has struggled to repeat his mechanics (thus resulting in command woes), Bard said that he can take satisfaction in a...

First-round pick Jones signs with Patriots

The Patriots announced Wednesday they have signed first-round pick Chandler Jones, Jones, a defensive end from Syracuse, was selected by the Patriots in the first round of the 2012 draft with the 21st pick overall.

The 6-foot-5, 265-pound Jones, a three-year starter at Syracuse, finished his college career with 147 total tackles, 10.0 sacks, five forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. As a junior in 2011, he was named All-Big East after finishing with 38 total tackles and 4.5 sacks despite being limited to just seven games.

Jones is the fifth member of New England's rookie class to sign, joining second-round selection Tavon Wilson, sixth-rounder Nate Ebner and seventh-round picks Alfonzo Dennard and Jeremy Ebert. (First-rounder Dont'a Hightower and third-rounder Jake Bequette are the only unsigned players.)

Bottom's up: Unlikely HRs lead Sox past O's

BALTIMORE -- An unlikely trio at the bottom of the lineup for the Red Sox put on a surprising display of power, as Daniel Nava (solo shot in the sixth), Scott Podsednik (solo homer in the eighth) and Kelly Shoppach (two-run homer in the sixth) each went deep in leading Boston past Baltimore, 6-5. The Sox concluded their eight-game roadtrip with 16 homers, going 5-3 on the trip, which came at the back end of a stretch of 20 games in 20 days.

With the game tied, 2-2, in the top of the sixth, Nava continued his excellent two-week stretch by lining a solo homer into the bleachers in right-center at Camden Yards for his second homer of the year. After a Podsednik single, Shoppach bashed a two-run homer to left. While the Sox gave two runs back in the bottom of the sixth to make it a 5-4 game, Podsednik lined a homer to right for an insurance run that proved vital in the eighth. It was Podsednik's first homer since 2010.

The show of power made a winner...
