Phenoms lead Nationals past Sox

Stephen Strasburg became the youngest visiting player since at least 1918 to record 13 strikeouts at Fenway, while Bryce Harper joined a very short list of 19-year-olds to homer as visitors in Boston, as the Nationals claimed a 7-4 victory over the Red Sox.

Strasburg featured a fastball that clocked as high as 100 mph on a night when he allowed two runs on four hits and two walks in six innings. Though he was running out of gas while working towards a career-high 119 pitches, he managed to find enough in the tank to strike out Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Kevin Youkilis with the bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth to smother the Sox' efforts to rally back into the game.

The Nats had opened the game up with six runs in the third and fourth innings, thanks in no small part to Harper's heroics. The 19-year-old delivered a double as part of a three-run raly in the third and then rocketed a two-run homer over the Triangle in right-center in the...

Doc: No major adjustments on LeBron

The Celtics won't tweak much on their defense against LeBron James in Game 7 after he scored 45 points in Game 6, but they will try to play their defense better. That was the focus from coach coach Doc Rivers on a conference call with reporters, Friday afternoon.

"We’re not going to do much. We do what we do. Defensively for the most part we have to do it better. I thought, obviously, LeBron had a great game. I thought there were things we should have done better in the game, with the way we were playing him. And we didn't do that. That's the first thing we have to correct. Then if we have to do something else, we'll do it."

As for the criticism that James has taken over the years, Rivers once again defended the superstar.

"He’s a great player all right? I don’t know what else he can do," Rivers said. "He does the right thing. When he does the makes the right pass and a guy misses a shot he’...

Daisuke: Return 'represents a new start'

In a statement through the team, Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka said that his return to a big league mound -- 365 days after undergoing Tommy John surgery last June 10 -- will be "emotional."

"Saturday's game will be a special game. It represents a new start for me," said Matsuzaka, who will be facing the Nationals. "It is going to be a very emotional day, but I have to remain calm and treat it like any other start I have had throughout my career."

Matsuzaka has a 3.65 ERA, 30 strikeouts and nine walks in 37 innings over the course of eight minor league rehab appearances. He'd been strong after receiving a cortisone shot in late-May, allowing one run in 10 1/3 innings before getting touched up in a 1 1/3 inning, 40-pitch tuneup earlier this week.

Matsuzaka, 31, is 49-30 with a 4.25 ERA in his Red Sox career, having gone 3-3 with a 5.30 ERA before blowing out last season.

Report: Pats, Gronk agree on new deal

The Patriots and Rob Gronkowski have reached an agreement on a six-year, $54 million extension, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The tight end, a second-round pick out of Arizona in 2010, has set numerous records at his position last year, including 1,327 yards and 18 total touchdowns (17 receiving, one rushing) on 90 receptions. The 6-foot-6, 265-pound Gronkowski had been scheduled to make a base salary of $540,000 in 2012 and $575,000 in 2013, plus minimal workout bonuses, in the final two years of his rookie deal.

Wojnarowski: LeBron won't choke again
By: DJ Bean

Yahoo Sports! Basketball writer Adrian Wojnarowski joined Dennis and Callahan Friday to discuss the Eastern Conference finals, which is going to a seventh game thanks to LeBron James' 45-point performance in Game 6.

Wojnarowski said that he feels LeBron James is maturing, and that unlike last season it does not seem as though he will fade as the games become more important. James was relatively quiet in the NBA finals against the Mavericks last year (including an eight-point Game 4 performance), but Wojnarowski thinks this is a different James than the one from years past. 

"He always looked more frenetic when he was younger and not at peace and more immature," Wojnarowski said of James. "Even when you'd see him just bouncing around in Cleveland around the locker room. You don't see that anymore. … Maybe he'll make shots, maybe he'll miss them, but I don't think you'll ever see him go into that shell [like against Dallas...
