Daisuke tosses 4 2/3 scoreless in rehab

Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka, making his first appearance in Triple-A Pawtucket on his rehab assignment while working his way back from Tommy John surgery last June, tossed 4 2/3 scoreless innings while allowing two hits (a single and double) and three walks while striking out four. Left-handed hitters were 0-for-9 against him. Matsuzaka required 87 pitches and threw 49 (56.3 percent) for strikes.

The outing was the third of Matsuzaka's rehab assignment. He previously appeared in High-A Salem (4 innings, 3 runs, 3 strikeouts, no walks) and Double-A Portland (4 2/3 innings, 1 run, 7 strikeouts, 2 walks). The right-hander had been slated for a rehab appearance on Friday, but that was pushed back by three days due to an issue on the left side of his neck.

Overall, in his three starts, Matsuzaka has a 2.84 ERA, 14 strikeouts and five walks in 12 2/3 innings. He has yet to pitch five complete innings, though he did reach a rehab-high in his...

After 11 seasons with Pats, Light retires

FOXBORO -- Saying "when you know it's your time, you just know," Matt Light officially retired Monday morning after 11 seasons with the Patriots.

Several teammates and coaches attended the ceremony, which took place in the Patriots Hall of Fame. After short speeches from owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick, the veteran offensive lineman addressed the reasons behind his decision to step away from the game for 11 years.

"I've got a daughter that's 10, I've got two boys who are knuckleheads and they need a lot of guidance a lot more time," said Light. "I think that one of things that was ever apparent over the last couple seasons, it takes a lot longer to recover the older you get. Really during that six, seven, eight months of that football season, it really becomes very difficult to give much outside of a 'hi' or 'Good night' or 'Good morning.' That's always been really important.

Bucher on D&C: C's can beat anyone in East

ESPN NBA analyst Ric Bucher joined Dennis & Callahan Monday morning to talk about the Celtics-Hawks first-round playoff series. The Celtics rolled to a 101-79 victory Sunday night to take a 3-1 series lead.

"Paul Pierce has a great game, Rajon Rondo has a great game -- getting those two to have great games in the same game happens, but it doesn't happen consistently. And what they showed last night is when they can get both of those guys rolling at the same time, this team still has championship qualities about it, has the capability of doing that," Bucher said.

"Now, I don't know how many more performances like last night they have. When Rondo's stepping up and knocking down 3's as if he's Ray Allen, you know things are rolling in your favor. But the fact that they had those two guys going at the same time instantly made me think, 'You know what? Maybe that one-game suspension wasn't the worst thing to happen this team.'...

Mashup: Hamels admits to beaning Harper

Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels sent a message to Nationals rookie Bryce Harper in the first inning of Sunday night's game, hitting him in the back with a fastball. In case the message wasn't received, Hamels admitted after the game that it was no accident.

"I was trying to hit him," Hamels said. "I'm not going to deny it."

Explained the veteran hurler: "That's something I grew up watching, that's kind of what happened. So I'm just trying to continue the old baseball because I think some people are kind of getting away from it. I remember when I was a rookie the strike zone was really, really small and you didn't say anything because that's the way baseball is."

Harper got his revenge later in the inning, stealing home when Hamels made a pickoff attempt to first base. Then in the third inning, Nationals starter Jordan Zimmerman hit Hamels in the leg, drawing a warning to both teams from the umpire.
