Singer Lady Gaga is not banned from the Yankees clubhouse, general manager Brian Cashman told the media Sunday. The scantily clad Yankees fan visited the locker room after Friday's loss to the Mets, drawing criticism and causing team management to clarify its rules regarding celebrity visits. Meanwhile, Gaga's memorable visit to the Mets' Citi Field on June 10, when she got mad at photographers snapping her picture and later flipped off the fans, is being recognized by the Mets. The team will have a "Go Gaga for Wright" night, when, in an effort to bolster third baseman David Wright's bid to be an All-Star, they will hand out foam fingers (index finger, not the middle one) that read: Make Wright #1.

Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz continued his tremendous first half by tossing 6 2/3 shutout innings to help lead his team to a 2-0 victory that concluded a three-game sweep over the Dodgers. With the win, Buchholz improved to 10-4 with a 2.47 ERA, tying him for the most wins in the American League and placing him third in ERA. Red Sox relievers Daniel Bard and Jonathan Papelbon handled the final seven outs, with Papelbon pitching a scoreless ninth for his 16th save.
The Sox got all the offense they needed in the early innings, thanks in large part to the heady baserunning of Dustin Pedroia. Pedroia singled in the first inning and stole second. An errant throw from Dodgers catcher Russell Martin trickled just a few feet from the bag, but Pedroia raced to third when he noticed that the bag was vacated thanks to the shift that Los Angeles was employing against David Ortiz. That, in turn, allowed Pedroia to score on an infield single by Kevin...
It appears the Bruins may not be on the verge of acquiring Florida Panthers forward Nathan Horton, according to a source close to the situation. Reports surfaced this weekend that the Bruins had been closing in on a trade for the former third overall pick, but the Bruins were just one of multiple teams to nearly have a deal with the Panthers.
"They were close, as were a few other teams," the source said of the Bruins' chances of getting Horton. It was unclear where a potential trade stood as of Sunday night.
The Panthers selected Horton in the 2003 NHL draft after flipping the top overall pick to the Penguins (Marc-Andre Fleury). The 25-year-old has never surpassed 62 points in his six-year NHL career and has scored 30 goals in just one season, a 2006-2007 campaign in which he gathered 31. A natural right wing, Horton was moved to center in the 2008-2009 season. The Panthers have been trying to move...

The Orioles seemed to have a lot of fun last night clinching the AL East. Buster said the biggest problem for Boston this year was the offense production dropping so dramatically in one year.
