Ray Allen has record-breaking night

In the greatest display of long-range perimeter shooting in NBA finals history, Ray Allen made his first seven 3-point field goal attempts in a blazing first half and set a new NBA finals single-game record with his eighth trey midway through the third quarter. Allen had 27 first-half points and made 7-of-8 from long range. He finished the game with 32 points and 8-of-11 treys.

 

Both the seven 3's in the first half and the eight for a game are new NBA finals single-game records. Michael Jordan and Kenny Smith held the previous record with six 3's in a half while Scottie Pippen and Smith held the mark for a game with seven before Sunday night. Allen finished 11-for-20 from the field, including 8-for-11 from long distance, and a game-high 32 points.

Ortiz fine after being hit on hand by pitch

BALTIMORE -- Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz said that he was sore but fine after being hit on the back of the left hand by a pitch from Orioles reliever Mark Hendrickson in Boston's 4-3 loss in Baltimore. The slugger did not leave the game after the stray pitch in the seventh inning, and ended up lining out to right field in his final at-bat of the contest. He went 0-for-4 on Sunday, and 0-for-12 in the three-game series in Baltimore.

Delcarmen suffers stiff lower back

BALTIMORE -- Red Sox reliever Manny Delcarmen left in the eighth inning of Sunday's game due to a stiff lower back.

 

"I've got old man back," he suggested afterwards.

 

Delcarmen was able to generate velocity, hitting 95 mph on the radar gun, but he was unable to follow through on his pitches, resulting in an inability to work down in the strike zone. He said he felt it most acutely on the last five pitches he threw: a run-scoring double by Scott Moore, and a four-pitch walk to Craig Tatum.

 

Delcarmen pitched 1/3 of an inning and allowed a run, throwing just three of 13 pitches for strikes. Following the game, he said that he was feeling much better after a massage treatment.

 

"I'm fine right now," he said.

 

Delcarmen said that the issue was one that he has been dealing with on and off for the past three weeks, but that he felt fine while...
