Report: Celtics work out Morrison

According to a Yahoo! Sports report, Adam Morrison is in town this week working out for the Celtics. The report indicates Morrison worked out on Tuesday and had a second session scheduled for Wednesday. The third overall pick in the 2006 draft by the Bobcats, Morrison spent 2½ seasons in Charlotte — missing one season with a knee injury — before being traded to the Lakers, where he played limited minutes while his team won two NBA titles.

 

Yahoo! also reported that the Celtics are set to hire Nets assistant Roy Rogers to coach the big men. He would replace Clifford Ray. Rogers briefly played for the Celtics during his three seasons in the NBA in the late 1990s.

Ortiz saves Red Sox with three-run blast

With two outs and the Red Sox trailing by a run in the eighth inning, David Ortiz rocketed his 30th home run of the season over the center field wall to propel the Sox to a 9-6 win over the Mariners on Tuesday night in Seattle.

The Sox added two more runs in the ninth inning when pinch-runner Eric Patterson raced home on a high chopper by Ryan Kalish, who would also ultimately come home when Josh Reddick ripped a two-out single. Closer Jonathan Papelbon allowed one run in the ninth but proceeded to strike out the side in picking up his 37th save.

 

The Mariners had claimed a one-run lead in the seventh inning when Franklin Gutierrez doubled in Ichiro Suzuki with Sox reliever Michael Bowden pitching. Daisuke Matsuzaka was charged with the run, with the starter allowing five runs on eight hits over six...
