Mashup: Marlins' Guillen back, on 'probation'

Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen returned Tuesday from a five-game team suspension for his comments praising Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and he remained apologetic.

"I put myself on probation … me, nobody else," Guillen said. "It's probation about growing up and being better, and be careful to not trust too many people. That was my problem."

There were no demonstrations against Guillen prior to the Marlins' 5-2 victory over the Cubs, which drew a season-low 24,544 to Marlins Park in Miami.

There was one noticeable heckler during the game, but Guillen said he heard only supportive comments.

"Everything was pretty nice," he said. "It made my day a little easier. I appreciate the way people were, not just with me but with the team."

Bobby V: Minors a possibility for Melancon

Reliever Mark Melancon failed to retire any of the six batters he faced and allowed three home runs in the process, becoming just the eighth pitcher since 1918 to give up three home runs without recording an out in a game. He has allowed runs in all four games he's pitched for the Sox, becoming the first reliever in team history to give up runs in each of his first four contests (each of one inning or less) with the club.

With Melancon's ERA sitting at 49.50, manager Bobby Valentine said that the team could not dismiss the possibility of sending the right-hander -- acquired in a trade with the Astros this offseason -- to the minors. Melancon does have an option left.

“At this time, you have to consider everything,” Valentine said. “He’s really concerned. I’m very concerned, obviously. He’s not getting the swing and miss. It seems like he’s a little –– he’s searching right now and so are we...

Pierce's big night can't save Celtics

For the first time in a regular-season game in the Big Three era a Celtic scored more than 40 points, but Paul Pierce's 43 points Tuesday night in New York weren't enough as the Celtics lost 118-110 after a deluge of Knicks 3-pointers. The Knicks made 19-of-32 from behind the arc as Steve Novak buried eight 3-pointers and J.R. Smith hit seven. Carmelo Anthony also recorded a triple-double with 35 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. Rajon Rondo extended his streak of double-digit assist games to 23 with a 13-point, 13-assist effort.

The Knicks scored 40 points in the second quarter and set NBA records for most 3-pointers in a quarter (11) and in a half (14). Smith made his first five 3's and went 7-for-9 in the first half while Novak went 4-for-6. Behind Smith and Novak, the Knicks bench outscored Boston's 39-0 in the first half and led by as many as 20 points.

Ray Allen missed his fifth straight game with a sore ankle and the Celtics also were...

Bombs away: Rangers crush Lester, Sox

The Rangers lit up Jon Lester for seven runs and eight hits over just two-plus innings, matching the shortest start of his career, as the defending American League champs obliterated the Red Sox, 18-3, Tuesday night at Fenway Park. After winning their first three at home, the Red Sox have dropped two straight in falling to 4-7 on the season. The Rangers hit six home runs -- all well over 400 feet -- including one by Josh Hamilton of nearly 500 feet that landed in the vicinity of the Ted Williams seat in right field off beleagured reliever Mark Melancon. The Rangers pounded 21 hits in the offensive explosion. 

Lester was spotted to a 2-0 lead after one inning when Dustin Pedroia launched his third homer of the season into the second row of Monster seats, with Mike Aviles aboard. Aviles, Pedroia and Adrian Gonzalez led off the game with three consecutive hits against Colby Lewis. He allowed just three hits after that over the next six innings in...
