Red Sox, Lackey ripped by Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Red Sox dropped a 12-5 decision to the Rangers Saturday night, in large part because of the rough outing turned in by starter John Lackey. The Sox' righty experienced a horrific outing in his 2011 debut, giving up nine runs on 10 hits in just 3 2/3 innings.

The biggest blow against Lackey came from former Sox third baseman Adrian Beltre, who broke the game open in the fourth inning with a grand slam. The homer, which was one of four for Texas on the night, keyed a six-run frame for the hosts.

Texas starter Colby Lewis got the win for the Rangers, giving up three runs over six innings. The Red Sox had jumped out to a 2-1 lead over Lewis and the Rangers in the second inning thanks to David Ortiz' second home run in as many games, this one a two-run job which drove in Adrian Gonzalez (3-for-5).

Red Sox reliever Dan Wheeler also struggled after coming on in relief for Lackey, giving up home runs to both Nelson Cruz and...

Title game set: Butler to battle UConn

Butler and the University of Connecticut will face off in the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship Monday night in Houston after each won their respective semifinal match-ups Saturday night.

UConn advanced thanks to a 56-55 victory over Kentucky, which stormed back from a 10-point halftime deficit. Kemba Walker once again led the way for the Huskies, scoring 17 points to go with seven assists. Jeremy Lamb also pitched in with 12 points on 5-for-8 shooting.

Kentucky made it close, gaining possession with 16.6 seconds remaining after collecting a loose ball and proceeding to call timeout while trailing by two. But DeAndre Liggins' three-pointer with six seconds left bounced off the rim, paving the way for two free throws from UConn's Napier sealed the win for the Huskies. Brandon Knight of the Wildcats nailed a 3-pointer at the buzzer, but it could only bring John Calipari's team within one.

For the second straight year, Butler advanced to the...

Ortiz sets RBI record for designated hitters

ARLINGTON, Texas -- David Ortiz stands alone as the greatest run producing DH of all time.

With a two-run homer in the second inning and an RBI groundout in the fourth, Ortiz ran his career total as a DH to 1,004. That pushed him one RBI past Edgar Martinez for the most ever by a designated hitter.

Ortiz is a five-time winner of the Edgar Martinez Award, honoring the top designated hitter in the majors. But, perhaps of even greater significance for Ortiz is that he is enjoying success to start the 2011 season, having hit his second homer after two games -- something he didn't do until the Sox' 24th game of 2010, and until their 56th game in 2009.

Marchand: 'Whatever we can' for 1st in East

Just minutes after clinching their second Northeast crown in three seasons, Bruins winger Brad Marchand made it clear the team still has a significant goal to accomplish before the playoffs - finishing first in the East. 

"That'd be huge," said the rookie Marchand, who claimed the team's "Seventh Player Award" before a 3-2 win against the Thrashers Saturday. "We talked about that in between periods. We know that standings aren't set yet. We want to do whatever we can to catch that first place. We're going to battle every game from here on out We do have a chance at catching them so we're going to try." 

"It's what a lot of teams obviously battle for so glad that that's out of the way," added coach Claude Julien. "We just have to keep playing and playing to win our next games and see where we end up."

The win gives the Bruins 99 points, two points behind second-place Washington and...
