Mashup: Ex-Patriots DB Brown pleads guilty

Former Patriots defensive back and assistant coach Corwin Brown, charged with striking his wife and holding her hostage with a handgun last summer, pleaded guilty but mentally ill Thursday in South Bend, Ind. In the incident, Brown shot himself in the stomach after releasing his wife.

Family members say they believe Brown suffered brain trauma during his football career at Notre Dame and in the NFL. Brown, 42, played eight seasons with the Patriots (1993-96), Jets (1997-98) and Lions (1999-2000). He was an assistant for one season under Bill Belichick in 2010, following stints with Virginia, the Jets and Notre Dame.

Brown is due to be sentenced Aug. 21. The plea agreement recommends a four-year prison sentence but indicates prosecutors would not oppose a suspended sentence with Brown placed on probation.

Red Sox come up short in pitchers' duel

The Mariners scored the game's only run when, with one out in the ninth inning, John Jaso singled in Casper Wells to give Seattle a 1-0 win over the Red Sox, Thursday night at Safeco Field. 

The decisive play was made that much more frustrating for the Red Sox considering Cody Ross' throw from right field was in time to get Wells, but catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia's sweep tag resulted in the ball popping loose, allowing for the game-winner.

Earning the win for Seattle was its starter Felix Hernandez, who struck out a career-high 13 batters over his nine innings, allowing just five singles while holding the Red Sox scoreless. The Mariners' righty threw 128 pitches, stranding runners on first and second in his final inning by getting Adrian Gonzalez to fly out to deep left-center and Will Middlebrooks to pop out.

Hernandez would fan each of the Red Sox' starters -- except Mike Aviles -- at least once.

Doing a good job of keeping...

Ainge: 'Some issues' with Sullinger's back

Danny Ainge didn't think he would be able to select Ohio State forward Jared Sullinger when the draft began, but as he fell because of a disk issue in his back, Ainge said the team was comfortable taking him.

"We’re fortunate to get him," Ainge said. "We were concerned and we did our research on the back issues and felt comfortable, but there are some issues there. Our medical staff thinks that short term and long term there may be some maintenance issues with the back."

Sullinger's back problem became a concern at the draft combine when it was reported that teams had a medical red flag. His father told that the issues were related to tightness in his legs. Sullinger missed two games in December because of back spasms, but they were the only two he missed his his two years at Ohio State.

Ainge praised Sullinger's all-around game and noted that he's been one of the best players in his class since his days...
