Ortiz only Red Sox All-Star representative

For the first time since 2001 the Red Sox will only have one representative in the All-Star Game, with David Ortiz making the American League squad as the team's starting designated hitter.

The only other Red Sox player in legitimate consideration for a spot on the AL team was catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who led all AL players at his position with 14 home runs. Saltalamacchia didn't make the cut, however, with Texas' Mike Napoli being voted in by the fans, while Baltimore's Matt Wieters and Minnesota's Joe Mauer were named as reserves.

Ortiz is second in the American League in OPS (1.006), while totaling 21 home runs and 53 RBIs with a .305 batting average. It is Ortiz' eighth All-Star berth.

Not over yet? C's still want Allen back

Despite being linked with every free agent shooting guard available, the Celtics still have interest in retaining Ray Allen. In fact, they want to try to do both: Re-sign Allen and add another scoring guard.

With Kevin Garnett back in the fold, the Celtics think think they can stay under the luxury tax "apron," which would give them access to the full mid-level exception: a four-year deal starting at $5 million annually. With Avery Bradley coming off shoulder surgery, the Celtics want to add depth and scoring punch in the backcourt, and Allen is still very much in their plans.

Report: Celtics pursuing Terry, Young

According to Yahoo! Sports, the Celtics began the process of pursuing free agent guard Jason Terry just after midnight, positioning themselves to replace Ray Allen if the 37-year-old decides to sign elsewhere.

The report states that the Mavericks, for whom the 34-year-old Terry has played with since 2004, still have interest in bringing him back, with the Clippers also showing interest. Terry averaged 15 points per game for the Mavs in 2011-12.

In the same story, Adrian Wojnarowski writes that the Celtics have interest in Clippers guard Nick Young, a 27-year-old who averaged 14.2 points per game last season.

Figgins' sacrifice fly beats Red Sox in 11th

Chone Figgins' sacrifice fly to right field with out in in the 11th inning was the difference, giving the Mariners a 3-2 win over the Red Sox Saturday night at Safeco Field in Seattle.

Back-to-back, 11th-inning singles by Dustin Ackley and Miguel Olivo against Red Sox closer Alfredo Aceves set up the Figgins' sacrifice fly. Aceves would go 2 1/3 innings in relief, allowing just the two hits.

For most of the night, the Red Sox' offense could come through went it counted against seven Mariners pitchers, going 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position while stranding 10 runners. Adrian Gonzalez managed three singles, while Cody Ross came away with a pair of hits for the only two multiple-hit performance by Sox hitters.

The Sox had tied the game with two runs in the seventh inning, scoring via a fielder's choice ground out to second base by Ryan Kalish (plating Gonzalez) and Miguel Olivo's passed ball, which allowed Will Middlebrooks to score....
