Bard allows three runs in one-inning outing

PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- In his first appearance since being demoted to Triple-A Pawtucket, Daniel Bard allowed three runs over his only inning of work while facing the Indianapolis Indians at McCoy Stadium Friday night.

Bard, whose fastball topped out at 96 mph, but sat around 93-94 mph, finished throwing 25 pitches, 16 for strikes. The righty hit two batters, allowed a pair of hits, while striking out two.

Pitching out of the wind-up to start the game, Bard hit Indians' leadoff man Chase d'Arnaud with his second pitch, a 95 mph fastball. He then allowed Gorkys Hernandez to place a bloop single into right field, coming on a slider.

Bard loaded the bases by hitting another batter, this time Indianapolis' No. 3 hitter Starling Marte. After a fielder's choice groundout to shortstop by Jeff Clement, scoring the game's first run, Bard came back and struck out former Red Sox infielder Yamaico Navarro swinging on a slider. The starter then, however,...

Doc, Celtics planning to 'pack for a week'

The message on the dry erase board in the Celtics locker room after Game 6 was simple: "Pack for a week."

Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals is Sunday in Miami. Games 1 and 2 of the NBA finals would be on the road next week, should the C's make their third trip in five years.

"The whole locker room was down," said Celtics coach Doc Rivers after the 98-79 loss to the Heat in Boston, "but you can see their resolve in the locker room. They're not just going to pack for [Saturday]. They're going to bring suits for Tuesday, and they're going to bring suits for Thursday. And that's the way we're planning to do it."

After watching his season come to an end on the parquet in 2010 and 2012, LeBron James wasn't going out like that again. He scored 45 points (19-26 FG) on one end and held Paul Pierce to nine (4-18 FG) on the other.

"He'll bounce back," added Rivers. "Paul is a big-game player....

Pierce: C's 'been about adversity all year'

In the wake of a shocking 98-79 loss to LeBron James and the Miami Heat, Paul Pierce sounded a philosophical tone about the prospects for Game 7 Saturday night in Miami.

“This team has been about adversity all year long," Pierce said. "So, this is not going to be [anything] new. It's been tough for us all year long to get to the point where we would be at, and why wouldn’t it be tough now? Winning is hard. Trying to get to the finals is hard. And this is as hard as it gets, and I think we are prepared for it.”

As clutch as Pierce was at the end of Game 5 in Miami, Pierce was ice cold all night in Game 6. He finished 4-for-18 from the field, including 0-for-6 from 3-point range. The Celtics captain scored just nine points in 31 minutes while James put up 45 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in 45 minutes to lead the Heat to a Game 7.

"He hit a lot of shots that he hasn't been hitting all series," Pierce said...

Conflicting reports on new deal for Gronk

There are conflicting reports about a new contract for Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. On Thursday night, Pro Football Talk, quoting a source, reported that Gronkowski and the Patriots have reached an agreement on a new deal that would replace the final two years of Gronkowski's rookie contract. However, PFT also quotes Gronkowski's agent Drew Rosenhaus as saying a deal has not been reached. A second-round pick in 2012, Gronkowski is currently slated to earn base salaries of $540,000 in 2012 and $575,000 in 2013, per NFLPA documents. For more Patriots news, check out

King James: MVP's epic night forces Game 7

LeBron James scored 45 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in 45 minutes while Paul Pierce fell ice cold and the Heat pulled off an improbable 98-79 blowout of the Celtics in Game 6 Thursday night at TD Garden. Rajon Rondo finished with 21 points for the Celtics, who now must win Game 7 on the road Saturday night in Miami to win the Eastern Conference finals and advance to the NBA finals. Pierce was just 4-of-18 on the night, including 0-for-6 from long range. 

James showed why he was voted the league MVP by dominating the first half, connecting on 12 of his 14 field goal attempts and putting up 30 points in a spectacular display.

Rondo was nearly step-for-step with him, scoring 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting, getting the basket early and often. But with the game tied, 12-12, the Heat went on a 10-0 run to assume command of the game. The Celtics would get no closer than seven points the rest of the half and trailed 55-42 at the half when Miami...
