Mashup: Amar'e hurts hand punching glass

Following the Knicks' 104-94 loss to the Heat in Game 2 of their first-round series Monday night in Miami, Amar'e Stoudemire took out his frustration on a glass case housing a fire extinguisher. The result was a cut on Stoudemire's left hand that might prevent the forward from playing in Game 3.

Tweeted Stoudemire after he left the arena with his hand wrapped and his arm in a sling: I am so mad at myself right now, I want to apologize to the fans and my team, not proud of my actions, headed home for a new start.

Stoudemire was treated in the locker room by paramedics. While the Knicks did not immediately rule out the player for the next game, the general feeling was that the injury would make it difficult for him to return.

"You never want to hear anyone gets hurt," Heat guard Dwyane Wade said. "Hopefully he gets better. We want all their guns on the court."

Valentine: Ortiz 'a star of stars right now'

Red Sox slugger David Ortiz punctuated one of the best months of his career by blasting a pair of homers (both off left-hander Tom Milone, marking the first time in his career that Ortiz has gone deep twice in the same game against a lefty) and going 2-for-3 with a walk. He finished April with a .405 average (2nd in the majors, 1st in the AL), .457 OBP (T-3rd, T-1st), .726 slugging mark (3rd, 2nd) and 1.184 OPS (2nd, 1st). He led the team with six homers and 20 RBI in the month, playing a significant role in helping the Sox emerge from their 1-5 start to finish the month by winning seven of eight and 10 of 16.

"David’s a star of stars right now," said manager Bobby Valentine. "It’s hard to throw a strike by him. He’s using all fields. He’s seeing the ball extremely well. I know it’s the old cliché, but he gets two balls, no strikes, it doesn’t even bother him to take because he’s very...

Surging: Buchholz, 4 HRs, power Sox win

David Ortiz launched a pair of home runs while Mike Aviles and Darnell McDonald also went deep in support of Clay Buchholz as the Red Sox overwhelmed the hapless Athletics, 11-6, Monday night at Fenway in the opener of a three-game series. For Ortiz, it was the 36th multi-homer game with the Red Sox, moving him past Jim Rice for second on the club's all-time list. He trails only Ted Williams (37) in Red Sox history. The Red Sox won their seventh in eight tries to move again to the .500 mark at 11-11 on the season.

Buchholz (3-1) was sharp for the first six innings. He had five strikeouts and needed just 72 pitches. He allowed only one run. But then, Buchholz lost it quickly in the seventh. He labored through 27 pitches and his night ended on a sour note when he shook off catcher Kelly Shoppach three times and left a curveball over the plate that former Red Sox right fielder Josh Reddick hit to right for a three-run homer. Buchholz was pulled by Bobby...

UPDATED: Youkilis scratched before game

UPDATED: For the second straight day, Kevin Youkilis was scratched from the Red Sox lineup shortly before the start of a game. While a reason was not specified, Youkilis was scratched prior to a game against the White Sox on Sunday afternoon due to a stiff back. He had been slated to bat cleanup and play third; in his absence, Cody Ross was bumped up to the cleanup spot and Nick Punto will play third base and bat ninth.

With the Athletics featuring left-hander Tom Milone on the mound, Kelly Shoppach will catch for the second straight day. Shoppach is 2-for-12 against lefties this year, but in his career, he hits southpaws at a .271/.371/.530/.902 clip. Ryan Sweeney is out of the lineup against Milone, with Ross moving to right and Darnell McDonald getting a start in left.

Shoppach will be catching Clay Buchholz for the second time this season. The first pairing of the two came in the third game of the year, when Buchholz permitted seven runs in...

Bobby V: Cook is a reliever if promoted

With a May 1 deadline looming on a major league option, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said Monday that if the Red Sox decide to promote righthander Aaron Cook, he will begin in the team's bullpen. Valentine said he met with general manager Ben Cherington earlier in the day Monday to discuss a possible landing spot for him on the big league 25-man roster. 

"Ben was in this afternoon," Valentine said. "We talked again on that. I'm sure he has all his ducks in order and again, I don't know exactly when, why, how, these deadlines and all that. Everyone's opinion has been shared."

If the Red Sox select him, Cook will receive $1.5 million. If they don't he becomes an unrestricted free agent. Valentine made it clear that if the team promotes him by Tuesday, he will come out of the bullpen, despite going 3-0 with a 1.89 ERA in five starts for Pawtucket this April. 

"I haven't talked to him so I can't speak for...
