Sox' woes against O's continue in loss

The Red Sox suffered their first three-game sweep in Baltimore since 1974, dropping the finale of their series by a 3-2 count in 10 innings. The Orioles enjoyed their second walkoff win in three days when Ty Wigginton drove the game-winning double to deep left-center against Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon, allowing Nick Markakis to score from second. The Orioles are now 4-2 against the Sox, and 3-16 against the rest of baseball.

 

The Sox wasted an excellent effort by starter Josh Beckett, who allowed two runs on six hits in seven innings. Beckett struck out six and walked none. But despite his second quality start of the season, he was left with a no-decision.

 

The only offense that the Sox received was courtesy of a pair of solo homers from Jason Varitek and J.D. Drew, both of whom have now gone deep five times this year. With the loss, the Sox dropped to 1-5 in extra inning games.

Rivers on Sheed: He has to play better

CLEVELAND — Rasheed Wallace has said all season that the playoffs are what motivates him, but after a disastrous regular season, the playoffs have been pretty much the same story for the Celtics prized free agent acquisition. Wallace picked up three quick fouls in the first half and went 1-for-5 in 13 minutes of Game 1 against the Cavaliers. He was also a liability again on the defensive end where his rotations were slow and his help defense was lacking. “He has to play better, bottom line,” Doc Rivers said Sunday. Could that mean a chance for Shelden Williams? Read the full post on Green Street.

Sturm out for season with torn ACL/MCL

Bruins forward Marco Sturm is out for the season after he crumpled to the ice when he missed a check on Philadelphia defenseman Matt Carle in the first period of Game 1 Saturday afternoon. The Bruins announced on Sunday that Sturm has a torn anterior cruciate ligament and torn medial collateral ligament in his right knee and will need surgery in 4-6 weeks and then six months of rehabilitation time. Sturm was held pointless through the first seven games of the postseason but had been the Bruins' leading goal-scorer in the regular season with 22 strikes.

 

“Marco suffer a knee injury yesterday that will keep him out for the rest of the year,” coach Claude Julien said. “It is unfortunate news for our hockey club and especially for him who has battled through a major injury last year and was really looking forward to these playoffs.”
