Lineup: Struggling Youkilis sits vs. Nationals

The Red Sox (29-30) look to avoid a three-game sweep to the Nationals (34-23) at Fenway Park on Sunday. Jon Lester (3-4, 4.64) will start for the struggling Sox, losers of five of their last six games. Lester has a career 10-4 record with a 2.99 ERA in 18 career starts vs. National League clubs. He will be opposed by Jordan Zimmermann (3-5, 2.82), who hasn't pitched less than six innings in any of his 11 starts this season. 

Kevin Youkilis is not in the lineup on Sunday. Youkilis is batting just .231 on the season and has just four hits in his last 25 at-bats. Adrian Gonzalez will start at first base, Ryan Middlebrooks at third base and Ryan Sweeney in right field against Zimmermann.

The Sox, five games out of first in the AL East, will start a six-game road trip against the Marlins and Cubs on Monday in Miami.

Hill to DL, Red Sox recall Melancon
By: DJ Bean

The Red Sox placed relief pitcher Rich Hill on the disabled list and recalled reliever Mark Melancon from Pawtucket Sunday. Hill, who last pitched on Friday, is dealing with a left forearm injury. 

Melancon was sent down to Triple-A in April after allowing 11 earned runs in four appearances (two innings) early in the season. In 21 appearances for Pawtucket this season, he has given up 15 hits and two earned runs, good for a 0.83 earned run average over 21 2/3 innings.

LeBron: C's 'like no other team'

MIAMI -- The two biggest stars of the victorious Miami Heat heaped all kinds of praise on the Celtics after their 101-88 win in Game 7 at Amercian Airlines Arena Saturday night. Both LeBron James and Dwyane Wade extended their respect to Doc Rivers and the stars of the Celtics, singling out Kevin Garnett for leading his team to cusp of another NBA finals appearance. 

"Competitors. They're great," James said. "You can never relax at all on the court when you're competing against those guys. You can never feel comfortable. You always feel on edge when you go against them. This is the chemistry that they built over the years. It's like no other team that I've ever faced in the postseason. They're great. They're great."

Wade, who had his run-ins with Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett during the series, had nothing but respect for them afterward. Wade said the Celtics are the standard for how team's with high profile trios - like...

Dooling: LeBron is 'great for our game'

MIAMI -- LeBron James has been one of the most scrutinized and criticized superstars in any sport over the last six years. But on Saturday night, in the moments after he scored 31 points and lifted his Heat team to a 101-88 win over the Celtics in Game 7, he was showered with praise by one of those who tried to slow him down. 

"I've never bought into this whole persona that LeBron isn't the guy," Keyon Dooling said. "I think everybody should relax a little bit. He's great for our game, he is our game. We need to uplift him instead of tear him down. He's a guy who's the most unselfish superstar I've ever seen. He rebounds the ball, he assists the ball, he's empowered his friends from his community. He does a lot of charity work in the community. He's a model citizen. He should not have a stain on his reputation and I hope it stops."

Dooling was part of a Celtics bench that could only muster two points and was outscored by...

Allen to have surgery, wants to keep playing

MIAMI -- Ray Allen will be one of the Celtics' prominent free agents after this season, and while his return to Boston is uncertain, he let it be known that he wants to continue his career.

"There's still a lot of basketball left in my legs," Allen said. "I know that for sure. So it's hard to say what can happen, what may happen. But four of us know how to play basketball. We know how to win games."

The 'four' Allen alluded to are Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and himself. Garnett is also a free agent  and no one seems sure what he will do. Garnett left without speaking to reporters.

The first thing Allen needs to do is get surgery to remove bone spurs from his ankle. "If I could do it tomorrow, I would do it tomorrow," he said. "That's probably my main concern right now, is taking care of that. My body feels good. That's my only issue."

As for his five years in Boston, Allen was...
