Daisuke allows five runs in Triple-A loss

Daisuke Matsuzaka recorded the longest outing of his minor league rehab assignment, delivering 6 2/3 innings in Durham for Triple-A Pawtucket, but the right-hander was once again touched for a pair of homers while allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits. He struck out three and walked none while throwing 64 of 95 pitches (67 percent) for strikes, and he was charged with the loss in Pawtucket's 5-0 defeat.

Matsuzaka gave up a homer to the first batter of the game he faced, Jesus Feliciano. He then settled to shut down Durham for the next few innings, allowing no runs and retiring 10 of 11 batters from the third through the start of the sixth innings. But after a one-out single and a catcher's interference call put runners on first and second with one out in the sixth, Matsuzaka hung a breaking ball that was crushed for a three-run homer by Henry Wrigley. The Bulls (the Triple-A affiliate of the Rays) tacked on another run in the pitcher's seventh...

Ross, Doubront lead Sox past Rays

Cody Ross homered and drove in four of the five Red Sox runs, and Felix Doubront helped sustain an excellent run of starting pitching as the Sox defeated Tampa Bay, 5-3, at the Tropicana Dome.

Ross went 2-for-3 with a walk while matching a season high with his four RBI. He negotiated an eight-pitch walk with the bases loaded and two outs in the top of the first inning against Rays starter Matt Moore. Then, after a Marlon Byrd solo homer in the second gave the Sox a 2-0 lead, Ross crushed a two-out solo homer to center in the top of the third. After the Rays rallied to within a run, Ross gave the Red Sox breathing room with a two-out, two-run single in the eighth inning. Ross is tied for the Red Sox team lead in runs batted in with 27, and his seven homers are second on the team.

That was enough for Doubront, who featured an at-times overpowering mix, eliciting swings and misses on his fastball (which registered as high as 95 mph), cutter and change...

Reports: Schilling's firm can't cover payment

According to reports, Curt Schilling's "38 Studios" company delivered a $1.12 million check to the Rhode Island's Economic Development Corp. on Thursday, but the check was returned after a company official told the agency that there were insufficient funds to cover the payment. (The payment was due May 1.) Schilling's firm received $75 million in loan guarantees from Rhode Island in 2010 to move his company to the state.

Brand: 76ers 'little overconfident' in Game 3

PHILADELPHIA -- The Sixers spent a good deal of their practice Thursday at the Philadelphia College of Osteopaedic Medicine reviewing film from their Game 3 loss to the Celtics and watching their coaching staff show how Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce manhandled them. 

Afterward, Elton Brand, the most veteran member of the Sixers, made a point to say that Philadelphia respects Boston's experience, while learning a huge lesson from the loss. 

"I've always said, they are very experienced but they're not old," Brand said. "These guys know what they're doing. They're not old. It's not like that. We were a little overconfident, but as we saw [Wednesday] night, it wasn't like that."

The Sixers beat the Celtics in Game 2, 82-81, and nearly beat them in Game 1 in Boston, losing by one point. Those two games in Boston, according to Brand, gave the Sixers confidence that they could beat the Celtics anywhere....

Report: Pats, Dennard agree on 4-year deal

The Patriots have reached an agreement on a four-year deal with seventh-round draft pick Alfonzo Dennard, per Shalise Manza-Young of the Boston Globe. (The defensive back confirmed his four-year contract on his Twitter account shortly after the report.) Dennard, who was taken 224th overall by New England, was originally believed to be an early- to mid-round pick, but a number of incidents (including the alleged assault of a police officer -- he still faces a May 30 arraignment for the incident) likely caused his stock to drop in the weeks leading up to the draft. The 5-foot-10, 205-pound cornerback was a first-team All-Big Ten corner as a senior at Nebraska, and came away with 97 tackles (69 solo) and 21 pass breakups over the course of his college career.
