Report: Bruins give McGrattan deal
By: DJ Bean

PRAGUE -- According to a tweet from ESPNBoston's James Murphy, the Bruins have tentatively agreed to terms with forward Brian McGrattan, who has been with the team throughout the preseason on a tryout basis. Murphy is reporting that the deal will not be finalized until Monday.

 

McGrattan has 395 penalty minutes in parts of five NHL seasons. A draft pick of the Kings, McGrattan has suited up for the Senators, Coyotes, and Flames. He has been skating on the the fourth line, which is centered by Gregory Campbell and has Shawn Thornton and Brad Marchand also vying for time on the wings.

Teixeira's homer leads Yanks past Twins

Mark Teixeira yanked a two-run home run just inside the right field foul pole in the top of the seventh inning, breaking a 4-4 tie to send the Yankees to a victory over the Twins in Game 1 of the American League Division Series. The two-run blast against reliever Jesse Crain completed a huge middle innings surge to give New York the early advantage in the best-of-five series.

 

Behind a two-run homer by Michael Cuddyer and a dominant start by Francisco Liriano, the Twins carried a 3-0 advantage through five innings. But the Yankees rallied for four runs against the Twins ace in the sixth inning, with Curtis Granderson's two-run triple giving New York a 4-3 edge. But the Twins fought back to tie the game in the bottom of the inning against CC Sabathia, as Danny Valencia walked with the bases loaded.

 

But Teixeira quickly untied the game with his one-out blast on a hanging slider, managing to keep it just inside the foul...

Celtics rip Sixers in exhibition opener

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Ray Allen scored 14 points and Semih Erden added 13 points as the Celtics beat the Sixers, 93-65 in their first exhibition game of the season. The starters played about 20 minutes apiece, while Doc Rivers played the first five off his bench for another 20. Philly was playing the second game of a back-to-back and was without several starters including Andre Iguodala and Elton Brand.

 

Erden was the big story of the night as he not only scored in the post, he also played strong defense and looked more like a 10-year veteran than a rookie. The C's play the Nets Thursday night.

Halladay authors 2nd ever MLB playoff no-no

PHILADELPHIA -- Appropriately, in the year of the no-hitter, Roy Halladay joined Don Larsen as the only pitchers to throw a no-hitter in postseason history as he shutdown the Cincinnati Reds, 4-0, in Game 1 of their National League Division Series here at Citizens Bank Park in South Philadelphia. 

 

The only blemish on the night for Halladay was a walk to Jay Bruce with two outs in the fifth. Otherwise, he would've matched Don Larsen's perfect game nearly 54 years ago to the day when the Yankee righty beat the Brooklyn Dodgers in the 1956 World Series. Halladay also came up with the game's biggest hit, a two-out, RBI single in the second to make the score, 2-0. 

 

Halladay threw a perfect game earlier this season when he retired all 27 Florida Marlins in South Florida on May 29.

Shaq to start C's preseason opener

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- When the Celtics take the floor for the preseason opener against Philadelphia Wednesday night, Shaquille O'Neal will be the team's starting center. Jermaine O'Neal entered camp as the starter, but he has been hampered by an injury to his left hamstring.

 

Doc Rivers said before the game that Jermaine O'Neal would also miss Thursday's game at New Jersey. That leaves Shaq as the center, with the rest of the five unchanged. With Jermaine O'Neal out, expect to see a lot of Semih Erden as well. Rivers wants to give him major minutes this preseason to get him ready in case injuries hits.
