Pirates pummel Padilla as Sox lose

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Pirates jumped on right-hander Vicente Padilla for five hits (three doubles) and four runs in the top of the fifth inning as Pittsburgh beat the Red Sox, 7-4.

Starter Clay Buchholz (two runs, three innings) took the loss, but it was Padilla who was hit the hardest, with Pittsburgh doing damage against both his fastball and curve. Scheduled for three innings of work, Padilla ended up contributing just two frames, throwing 29 pitches (22 strikes).

The Sox received a pair of homers in the loss, both against left-handers, with David Ortiz and Darnell McDonald going deep. The Sox next play on Saturday night against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Blazing blowout: C's destroy Blazers

Two nights after getting blown out by 32 points in Philadelphia, the Celtics demolished the Blazers, 104-86, Friday night at TD Garden. The win, which featured a 43-point Boston lead in the second half, was the perfect set-up for Boston, which travels cross-country Saturday to take on Kobe Bryant and the Lakers Sunday afternoon at Staples Center. 

The biggest benefit of the blowout was the rest it provided Celtics' starters. Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett all played less than 30 minutes. All four came out late in the third quarter and didn't play at all in the fourth, with Pierce, Rondo and Allen playing just 26 minutes. Garnett finished with 10 points and eight rebounds in just 21 minutes.

Allen and Pierce were the shooting stars of the night, combining to make 15-of-25 from the field, including 6-of-12 from 3-point range, and both finished with 22 points to share the team lead in scoring. 

The game was tied...

Buchholz goes three innings vs. Pirates

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz, in his second start of the the spring, threw 51 pitches (34 strikes) in three innings of work in which he showed some impressive changeups but also left some fastballs over the plate. Buchholz allowed two runs on three hits (two of which were struck by Pirates star Andrew McCutchen, who lined a single to right-center and launched a majestic double high off the higher-than-the-Green-Monster). He struck out one and hit a batter.

Buchholz threw a number of two-seam fastballs while mixing in his changeup and curveball at different intervals. While he is still working to build arm strength (his fastball remained in the low-90s) and sharpen his command, the Sox are pleased with his health in his return from last year's injury.

"His spring training has been going really well. Really good physical condition. His arm feels good," manager Bobby Valentine said before the game. "His back...

Wilcox, Pietrus out for Celtics

Mickael Pietrus (knee) and Chris Wilcox (personal reasons) are both out of the Celtics' lineup for their game against Portland on Friday. Celtics' coach Doc Rivers said he was hopeful both players would be back for the start of their eight-game road trip on Sunday against the Lakers. Pietrus has made just 3-of-17 3-pointers since the All-Star break. Rivers thinks that his struggles are all related to his health.

"I don’t think it’s any deeper than that," Rivers said. "We’re just going to sit [Pietrus] out tonight and hope he plays Sunday. It just keeps flaring up, so who knows?" 

Pietrus' knee bothered him before the Philadelphia game on Wednesday, but he decided to play through it. The Celtics lost by 32 and Pietrus attempted just one shot in 13 minutes.

"If we could get the game back, especially the way it turned out, it would have been nice to not have played him," Rivers said....

Andrew Bailey: No need to compare fans

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- A day after Jonathan Papelbon told a Philadelphia sports talk radio station that Philly fans "know the game better" than Boston fans, Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey -- a lifelong fans of all Philadelphia sports, having grown up 10 minutes from the ballpark -- said he wouldn't distinguish between the two.

"There's no reason to cause drama, from my perspective," Bailey said. "Your fans are the ones who go out and support you. For me, I love them all. It's going to be fun playing in front of a packed house, for sure. Even in Oakland, the fans are great out there. The situation with the stadium and stuff are a little different. The fans that come to the game are baseball fans. Coming here it wasn't a big deal for me because we have one common goal, everybody loves the game of baseball  and it's the same thing with the fans. To say one fan base is better than the other, I've never really seen that. But it's...
