Leading the way for the visitors was Dustin Pedroia, who finished with four hits, including a solo home run (his third of the season). Adrian Beltre (three hits), and Jacoby Ellsbury and Victor Martinez (two apiece), also helped pace the Sox' 12-hit attack. Starter Clay Buchholz earned the win, allowing three runs over five innings. The righty ran into trouble along the way, throwing just 11 first-pitch strikes to the 24 batters he faced, while letting at least one baserunner reach in each of his innings.

 

Ellsbury was forced to leave the game in the ninth inning after suffering what appeared to be an injury to the left side of his chest after colliding with Beltre. The two were chasing a foul ball off the bat of Mitch Maier. J.D. Drew, who was out of the...

Celts top Bucks in potential playoff preview

Playing without Kevin Garnett, the Celtics beat the Bucks in Milwaukeee Saturday night, 105-90. Doc Rivers elected to sit Garnett after he said the big man "looked tired," in a Friday night loss to the Wizards. The Celtics played one of their best games in recent memory as Paul Pierce scored 24 points and Rajon Rondo added 15 points and 10 assists.

Things got heated late in the game after Kurt Thomas was assessed a Flagrant 1 foul for throwing Glen Davis to the ground. Davis earned a technical foul for his retaliation, which included a hard shoulder back at Thomas. Then Pierce and Jerry Stackhouse became entangled and exchanged words, which led to an ejection for Milwaukee coach Scott Skiles.

The two teams play again Wednesday and coiuld meet in the first round of the playoffs.
