Lineup: Sweeney leading off, Salty moved up
By: DJ Bean

After getting Monday night off, Ryan Sweeney is back in center field and leading off for the Red Sox as they go for their fifth straight victory. The Sox will send Josh Beckett to the mound while Seattle will counter with Blake Beavan.

Beckett is looking to bounce back from a disasterous outing, as he allowed seven earned runs and two homers over 2 1/3 inning last Thursday against the Indians. His earned run average sits at 5.97 entering Tuesday's contest. 

Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia is batting sixth, the highest he has been slotted in the order this season. He is comming off a five RBI performance on Sunday against the Indians. The Red Sox' lineup is as follows: 

1. Ryan Sweeney, CF

2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B

3. David Ortiz, DH 

4. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B

5. Will Middlebrooks, 3B

6. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C

7. Cody Ross, RF

8. Daniel Nava, LF

9. Mike Aviles, SS

Doc on D&C: 'Philly has outplayed us'

Doc Rivers made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show on Tuesday, the morning after the Celtics dropped Game 2 of their Eastern Conference second-round series, an 82-81 76ers win that evened the series at 1-1. Rivers was first asked about the inability to get more shots for Kevin Garnett, who attempted 20 shots in Game 1 (scoring 28 points) but only attempted 12 in Game 2.

"Maybe we weren't a smart or well-coached team last night," Rivers said. "We never really got into our sets, and that happens in games, you see it all the time. It took too long to get into it, it took to long to establish it.  I thought we overreacted to their traps." 

As for the illegal pick call on Garnett with 10 seconds left, Rivers still feels referee Mike Smith made an incorrect call but won't consider the foul when assessing blame for the loss.

"It's a tough call and I'm going to stop there," Rivers...

Mashup: Hunter quits Caps to return home

Dale Hunter, who was lured to Washington in November to take over the Capitals and then led them to a first-round upset of the Bruins last month, quit as the team's coach to return to his home and junior hockey team he owns in Canada.

"I'm going back to the farm, the team and family," Hunter said, insisting that there's no scenario in which he would return to the NHL.

Hunter met with general manager George McPhee two days after the Capitals lost in seven games to the top-seeded Rangers in the Eastern Conference semifinals, and McPhee said he knew he wouldn't be able to change Hunter's mind.

"I'd rather have him for six months than not at all, because he had quite an impact on this club," McPhee said. "He really taught this club the 'how' of how to win. They all wanted to win. They just didn't know how. The 'how' is being a team and sacrificing, and he sure got that out of this club."

Doc: Not 'real happy or proud' of C's game

In a game that could only be classified as ugly from the Celtics' standpoint, Boston shot just 41 percent Monday night in Game 2 against Philadelphia and lost at home for just the second time in 19 home games, dropping an 82-81 decision to the Sixers in the Eastern Conference semifinals. It was Philadelphia's first playoff win in Boston since the epic "Beat LA" chant in Game 7 of the 1982 Eastern Conference finals. The Sixers had lost seven straight in Boston in the postseason before Monday's win.

Coach Doc Rivers was asked if something was wrong with Kevin Garnett in the fourth quarter since his offensive touches seemed to diminish drastically.

“Well, nothing was wrong," Rivers began. "We didn’t go to him. It’s plain and simple. My thought: we never established the post. I thought the second unit again established the post in the one stretch in the fourth quarter. I really thought we started out the first...

Turner: C's Garnett 'is going to be mad'

Coming out of a timeout, the Celtics trailed the 76ers by three in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals in Boston, and referee Micheal Smith whistled Kevin Garnett for an illegal screen with 10 seconds remaining that effectively evened the series heading to Philadelphia.

"I was surprised he called it, to tell you the truth" said 76ers swingman Evan Turner, who scored four straight points to give the Sixers a 78-75 lead with 12 seconds left. "I was like, 'Yo, what happened? What's going on?' They called that foul, and I was like, 'Wow, somebody's going to be mad.'"

Garnett scored 11 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter and finished with 12 rebounds, but the foul made his double-double an afterthought.

"I think that was a foul," said Sixers forward Elton Brand, who started the game defending Garnett. "It's been called late in the regular...
