Sox take 'roller coaster' loss vs. O's

BALTIMORE -- The Red Sox wasted their most impressive (and indeed, first) comeback of the season, zooming back to tie the game, 4-4, in the top of the eighth after trailing by four runs only to see the game given back to the Orioles just as quickly in a 5-4 loss.

The Sox did nothing through seven innings, as Baltimore starter Jeremy Guthrie helped to shut down the Sox. But down 4-0, the Sox rallied for four straight hits in the eighth, the last a three-run homer to left by Kevin Youkilis to tie the contest.

That brought reliever Daniel Bard to the mound in the bottom of the inning. But Bard said that the game sped up a bit on him as he was suddenly thrust into a tie game. He gave up singles to each of the first three hitters he faced, missing his location badly. He also crossed signals with catcher Jason Varitek for a passed ball. Bard seemed poised to wriggle out of the jam, however, when with runners on second and third and no outs, a ball in the...

Finishing touch: Horton wins Game 7 in OT

Nathan Horton blew a slapshot past Carey Price with 14:17 left in overtime to give the Bruins a 4-3 win over the Canadiens in Game 7 Wednesday night, sending the Bruins onto the Eastern Conference semifinals. With the win over the Canadiens at TD Garden, the Bruins advance to play the Flyers this weekend in Philadelphia in a rematch of their epic playoff meeting from last year. 

The Bruins appeared headed to a playoff rematch with the Flyers in regulation when Chris Kelly put a backhanded shot behind Price with 10:16 left in the third to give the Bruins a 3-2 lead. With the crowd sensing victory, Patrice Bergeron took a high-sticking penalty with 2:37 left in regulation, setting up P.K. Subban's power-play score on a slapshot past Tim Thomas with just 1:57 left in the third. 

It marked the first time in four tries that the Bruins won a Game 7 on TD Garden ice and was the first Game 7 win for the B's since beating the Canadiens in the...

Nelson won't grant NFL stay in lockout case

U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson denied a request from the league for a stay in its case against the players on Wednesday evening, which maintains her ruling from Monday that lifted the lockout that was put in place by the owners last month. The owners are expected to appeal Nelson’s ruling to the 8th Circuit Court in St. Louis.

Nelson wrote that the NFL “has not met its burden for a stay pending appeal, expedited or otherwise.”

“In short, the world of ‘chaos’ the NFL claims it has been thrust into — essentially the ‘free-market’ system this nation otherwise willfully operates under — is not compelled by this court’s order,” Nelson wrote.

The league had wanted Nelson — who ruled earlier this month for the players — to keep the lockout in place while the ruling was appealed, saying that if the league began football activities, it...

Belichick on draft trade: 'Lot of discussions'

Bill Belichick sat down with Stacey Dales of for an interview on the eve of the 2011 NFL Draft. The Patriots own three of the top 33 picks in the draft -- and six picks in the first three rounds -- and with Belichick's recent history of dealing picks it's not a reach to think more moves might take place this year. 


"I think it's pretty normal at this point -- a couple of days before the draft -- to have discussions with other teams, just to expedite the conversations on draft day if it were going to come to that," said Belichick. "Usually those picks are traded based on who is on the board, players that other teams want, or we want, that stimulates the conversation. ... It's very preliminary at this point.

"We've definitely had a lot of discussions, potentially, but those things don't crystalize until draft day or a lot of times when you are on the clock. It's very unusual to see these types of trades...
