Sox get back to .500 with win vs. O's

All nine members of the Red Sox lineup had at least one hit, and eight of the nine either scored or drove in a run, as the Sox claimed an 8-6 win over the Orioles in Baltimore. With the victory -- the Sox's ninth in 11 games -- Boston got back to .500 for the first time since April 30.

A rough start from Clay Buchholz had the Sox trailing, 5-2, after five innings. But the team rallied to tie the game in the sixth, with a rally that was initiated by a colossal homer to right by David Ortiz and that continued when Adrian Gonzalez and Will Middlebrooks collected hits to put runners on first and second with no outs. A groundout put a pair of runners in scoring position, and a Daniel Nava sac fly and a balk by Baltimore starter Tommy Hunter (with Middlebrooks dancing off of third) tied the game, 5-5.

The Sox took the lead the next inning when Gonzalez delivered a bases-loaded sac fly and Middlebrooks (who matched a career-high with three hits)...

Hook, line, sinker: Bass reels in Sixers

Brandon Bass scored 18 of his 27 points in the third quarter and outscored Philadelphia all by himself as the Celtics came from behind to beat the Sixers, 101-85, Monday night at TD Garden. The Celtics lead the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series, 3-2, and can advance to the conference finals with a win on Wednesday night in Game 6 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. 

Kevin Garnett added 20 points while Rajon Rondo had 13 points and 14 assists for the Celtics, who are now 8-0 in pivotal Game 5 situations where the series is tied. 

In a stark contrast to Game 4 in Philadelphia, the Sixers came out on fire in the first half, making 23 of their first 36 shots from the floor and shooting 60 percent from the field. 

Just as troubling for the Celtics was the trend that continued from Friday, when Philadelphia won most of the battles for loose balls to maintain their lead for most of the first half. At one point, the...

Bradley out with shoulder injury, Allen starts

The Celtics will be without Avery Bradley for Game 5 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series against the 76ers on Monday because of issues related to his shoulder injuries.

"It’s not just the one, it’s actually both shoulders. It’s pretty bad," Doc Rivers said. "We’ve got to keep winning obviously and he’ll still play games, I think. This is probably how it’s going to be from this point on. I think he’ll play a game and miss a couple and play a game. That’s basically the way it will be."

Rivers said the strength didn't return to Bradley's shoulder after it popped out in Game 4. "If Avery could play, he would play," Rivers said. "He just can’t."

Ray Allen will start for the first time since April 4, but he's also battling bone spurs in his ankle. Mickael Pietrus and Keyon Dooling will also factor into the equation.

"Keyon, Ray or...

Gonzalez on RF: 'Whatever the team needs'

BALTIMORE -- With Cody Ross heading to the disabled list on Tuesday due to the a broken navicular bone in his left foot, manager Bobby Valentine allowed that the team is giving some thought to the idea of having Adrian Gonzalez continue to play some right field (the position he manned for the final two games of the weekend interleague series in Philadelphia) so that Kevin Youkilis can get playing time at first base and Will Middlebrooks can remain on the roster at third base.

"That probably will be part of the discussion," said manager Bobby Valentine. "If Ben and I decided [that keeping Youkilis and Middlebrooks on the roster is] something we should pursue, I think there is a way of trying to make it work. ... It’s all a balancing thing: what’s right for [Gonzalez], what's right for us, what's right for Youk, what's right for the rest of the guys. It’s a tough little decision, situation. A lot of times these things...

Lineup: Lin starts as Sweeney sits

BALTIMORE -- Che-Hsuan Lin will make his first major-league start on Monday as the Red Sox (20-21) open a three-game series at Camden Yards vs. the first-place Orioles (27-15). 

Lin was recalled on Sunday as the Sox continue to have injury problems with their outfielders. Five outfielders -- Jacoby Ellsbury, Darnell McDonald, Carl Crawford, Ryan Kalish and Jason Repko -- are currently on the DL with Cody Ross (broken foot) about to become the sixth. Ryan Sweeney, still dealing with symptoms from a concussion following his diving catch on Saturday night, will again be out of the lineup on Monday.

Clay Buchholz (4-2, 7.77) will take the mound for the Sox. He will be opposed by Tommy Hunter (2-2, 4.78). The Sox have won eight of their last 10 games overall but have lost eight of their last 10 against the Orioles, including a three-game sweep at Fenway three weeks ago.
