Bowden struggles as Mets top Sox

Starting in place of Jon Lester (flu), Michael Bowden was tagged for a pair of runs in two innings as the Mets picked up a 6-5 victory over the Red Sox at Digital Domain Park in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

 

Bowden was replaced by Andrew Miller, who gave up three runs in his two inning on the hill, all courtesy of a three-run Ike Davis homer in the third inning. Miller was the only lefty in the Sox bullpen mix to struggle on Sunday, however, as Hideki Okajima pitched a perfect fifth inning and Rich Hill offered a pair of scoreless frames in the sixth and seventh.

 

The Sox connected for three home runs, as non-roster invitees Juan Carlos Linares and Tim Federowicz each posted solo shots and Josh Reddick hit a two-run home run in the eighth inning, his second blast of the spring.

 

The Red Sox (3-5) host the Orioles on Monday at City of Palms Park. John Lackey is scheduled to start for the Sox.

Celtics announce Arroyo signing

The Celtics officially announced the signing of free agent point guard Carlos Arroyo, who was recently waived by Miami to make room for Mike Bibby. With Arroyo on the roster, the Celtics now are at the maximum of 15 players on the roster and this likely completes the mid-season makeover. Nate Robinson, Kendrick Perkins, Marquis Daniels, Semih Erden and Luke Harangody are out and Jeff Green, Nenad Krstic, Troy Murphy, Sasha Pavlovic and Arroyo are in.

 

Arroyo started 42 games for Miami and averaged 5.6 points and 2 assists per game. He will provide depth behind Rajon Rondo and Delonte West. Arroyo is expected to join the team in Boston on Monday.

Raji sparks BC rout of Wake Forest

Corey Raji celebrated Senior Day at Boston College by scoring 21 points as the Eagles closed out the regular season with an 84-68 victory over Wake Forest on Sunday afternoon before a sellout crowd of 8,606 at Conte Forum.

 

Fellow seniors Biko Paris (19 points) and Joe Trapani (17) also had big days for the Eagles (19-11, 9-7 ACC), who ended up tied for fourth place in the league with Clemson and Virginia Tech.

 

Clemson, by virtue of its wins over Virginia Tech and BC, gets the fourth seed and a first-round bye in the ACC tournament. BC, which swept Virginia Tech, is the fifth seed and opens with a rematch against 12th-seeded Wake Forest (8-23, 1-15) on Thursday (2 p.m.). If BC wins, it would face Clemson in the quarterfinals on Friday.

 

BC fell behind Wake by six points early, but Raji (8 points) and Paris (6) then sparked an 18-2 run to make it 33-23 with 7:10 left in the period. BC led by 14 at the...

Gonzalez takes BP for first time

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Adrian Gonzalez took another step in his rehabilitation from off-season shoulder surgery, taking batting practice on Sunday morning for the first time this spring. 

 

The first baseman took 25 swings in his five rounds of batting practice, and showed power to all sides of the field. He hit three balls over the right field fence in his final five swings. Pawtucket manager Arnie Beyeler did the pitching to Gonzalez, who was being closely observed by trainer Mike Reinold and hitting coach Dave Magadan.

 

"I was feeling good the whole time, and it felt good to get out there," said Gonzalez. "It was good, it really was."

Pens are mightier: B's streak over at 7

Dustin Jeffrey scored his second goal of the game at 1:52 of overtime to lead the Penguins to a 3-2 win over the Bruins Saturday night at TD Garden, snapping Boston's season-long winning streak at seven games. The seven-game run was Boston's best since winning 10 straight from Dec. 12, 2008-Jan. 1, 2009. 

 

David Krejci scored with an extra attacker with 32.5 seconds remaining to force overtime, just moments after Tomas Kaberle blocked Matt Cooke's shot on an empty net. Jordan Staal and Jeffrey scored 70 seconds apart in the second period to erase a one-goal deficit.

 

Zdeno Chara snapped a 19-game drought when he scored his first goal since a hat trick on Jan. 17 on wrister from between the circles that beat Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury up top. The goal at 7:26 of the second period gave Boston a 1-0 lead they would hold for only two and a half minutes.
