Lineup: Gonzalez back in sixth spot

After not batting sixth in the lineup since September 2006, Adrian Gonzalez will hit sixth for the second consecutive game on Thursday as the Red Sox (28-28) look to avoid a sweep against the Orioles (32-24) at Fenway Park. 

Gonzalez had a single in three at-bats in the sixth spot Wednesday and is hitting .263 with just four home runs in 224 at-bats this season. He will start in right field as Kevin Youkilis plays first base and Will Middlebrooks starts at third base.

Clay Buchholz (5-2, 6.58) starts for the Sox against Brian Matusz (5-5, 5.41). After allowing at least five earned runs in each of his first six starts of the season, Buchholz has allowed three or fewer earned runs in four of his last five starts. He struggled in his only appearance vs. the Orioles this season, allowing five runs on seven hits in 3.2 innings on May 6.

38 Studios files for bankruptcy

38 Studios -- the video game company created by Curt Schilling -- filed for bankruptcy protection in Delaware on Thursday.

The company, which laid off over 300 employees last month, owes between $100 and $500 million, according to court filings. Federal authorities have started an investigation into the troubled Providence-based company. The state of Rhode Island landed 38 Studios (previously based in Maynard, MA) with a $75 million loan guarantee in 2010. 

"This action comes after several weeks when the company has reviewed, considered and received the recommendations and advice with respect to potential avenues for relief that are currently available. After ongoing negotiations with the State of Rhode Island and potential investors and other interested parties, the Company has been unable to find a solution to the current stalemate,” 38 Studios said in a statement on Thursday.

Source: Ocho leaves Gillette before OTA

FOXBORO -- According to a source, Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco was at the Gillette Stadium facility Thursday morning but left before the start of the OTA session. It marked the first spring session the media has had access to where the receiver was not present. Adding to the intrigue is the fact that Ochocinco removed the fact that he plays for the Patriots from his Twitter bio sometime between Wednesday night at Thursday morning. (UPDATE, 2:15 p.m.: Ochocinco has added the Patriots information back to his Twitter bio.)

The 34-year-old Ochocinco has struggled since he was acquired by the Patriots last July, finishing the 2011 season with 15 catches for 276 yards and a touchdown. He restructured his contract in March, lowering his base salary for 2012 to $1 million.

Olney on M&M: Crawford closes in on return

ESPN's Buster Olney joined Mut & Merloni Thursday and spent some time talking about the issues surrounding the last-place Red Sox.

Rehabbing outfielder Carl Crawford continues to work toward rejoining the major league club, and Olney expects that he'll be back in Boston soon.

"I think Crawford is making a lot of progress," Olney said. "In fact, based on what I heard today, I think there's a good chance that he's going to be back by the end of the month. He's right on the cusp of really ramping up his throwing program, he's hitting, he's doing all the other stuff. And let's face it, at some point, if the Red Sox figure that he's throwing well enough just to even throw to a cutoff man, you go with it. Because he's playing in Fenway, there's not a lot required, you don't necessarily have to have him throwing at full speed. We've seen a lot of teams through the years will hide a guy with an arm issue out in left field....

Allen, Rondo ready for Game 6

WALTHAM -- The Celtics spent Thursday morning in typical game-day mode, preparing for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals at TD Garden against LeBron James and the Heat. All 14 active players were present and accounted for as the team went through halfcourt sets and shooting drills in anticipation of the game that -- if they win -- would propel them to the NBA finals for the third time in five seasons. The Celtics lead the best-of-seven series, 3-2. 

Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo were among the Celtics in attendance. Both had minor injury issues in the Game 5 win in Miami. Allen had to leave the game for the locker room midway through the third quarter to get treatment for his sore ankles while Rondo suffered a cut on his left arm. Both returned to the game and are expected to be fully ready for the potential series-clincher at the Garden. Rondo shot just 3-of-15 in Game 5 while suffering the injury to the same arm on which he dislocated his left...
