Rangers rebound in Game 2 win over Yanks

Once again, the Rangers carried a five-run lead into the eighth inning. But one night removed from their bullpen meltdown against the Yankees, five Rangers relievers combined to deliver 3 1/3 shutout innings to secure a 7-2 victory, and send the best-of-seven American League Championship Series back to New York tied, 1-1.

 

Texas starter Colby Lewis tossed 5 2/3 innings, allowing two runs on six hits while punching out six. Meanwhile, for the second straight game, the Rangers jumped on the Yankees starter and knocked him out after four innings, this time hammering New York right-hander Phil Hughes for seven runs.

 

Leadoff man Elvis Andrus had an infield single and ultimately stole home on the back end of a double steal to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead in the first, and former Red Sox first-round pick David Murphy blasted a solo homer to right field to add on another run in the second. The Rangers scored two runs in the second...

Doc: Rondo is Celts' new post-up threat

HARTFORD -- Speaking prior to his team's preseason game against the Knicks at XL Center, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said that not only are the C's going to have more of an offensive presence near the paint, but that one of the ways they are going to accomplish their goal of improved post play is by using point guard Rajon Rondo on the block.

 

"Paul [Pierce] loves the post, so does Kevin [Garnett]. Rondo is the guy, for me, who is the new guy that we can actually use," Rivers explained. "Rondo is better than you think down there. We were working on it a lot last year, we just never had the confidence to do it. 

 

"What makes him effective is that you have to guard him down there. You can't back off of him on the post. When he's guarded, it not only spreads the floor, but it makes him a better passer."

 

Rivers said that the Celtics were forced to go away from pounding the ball...

BC's upset bid at No. 16 FSU falls short

Led by its defense, Boston College stood on the cusp of a major upset, taking a 19-17 lead over Florida State early in the fourth quarter. But the No. 16 Seminoles rallied at home, with wide receiver Bert Reed taking a reverse and weaving 42 yards for a touchdown to give FSU a 24-19 victory in Tallahassee.

 

Boston College fell to 2-4 on the year and 0-3 in the ACC. But they came tantalizingly close to shocking their opponents. With BC trailing, 17-9, late in the third quarter, Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich tipped a pass from FSU quarterback Christian Ponder, with defensive back Jim Noel hauling it in (for his second pick of the day) and running 41 yards to the end zone. The pick marked the fourth FSU turnover of the day; BC, meanwhile, did not turn the ball over once.

 

The extra point brought Boston College within a point, and soon, the Eagles took a lead at the start of the fourth quarter on a 38-yard field...

Sharks extend Joe Thornton for three years

The San Jose Sharks announced that they have signed center Joe Thornton to a three-year, $21 million extension that will run through the 2013-14 season. The 31-year-old, who was acquired by the Sharks from the Bruins (who selected him first overall in the 1997 draft) in 2005, has scored 931 points in 915 career games.

 

"Joe is among the top players in the game, and along with several other core members of our team, we feel he is just entering the prime of his career," Sharks GM Doug Wilson said in a press release.

Thomas to start for Bruins in NJ
By: DJ Bean

Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters Saturday that Tim Thomas, who is coming off a shutout in his season debut last Sunday, will be the starting goaltender when the Bruins take on the Devils on Saturday night.

 

Thomas, 36, made 29 saves against the Coyotes in the 3-0 victory in Prague, his 18th career shutout. Tuukka Rask, meanwhile, allowed four goals in the team’s season-opening 5-2 loss.

 

The game will be the Bruins first since returning from Prague, where they picked up two points in the two-game set with Phoenix. The Devils, on the other hand, have just three points in five games and lost on Friday night to the Avalanche.
