U.S. again robbed of goal in World Cup

Controversial refereeing reared its ugly head in the United States' World Cup action again Wednesday. In the 19th minute, the Americans appeared to take a 1-0 lead over Algeria on a rebound goal by Clint Dempsey. However, the goal was waved off due to offsides, keeping the game scoreless. Replays indicated Dempsey was even with the final Algerian defender and the goal should have been allowed.

NBA's No. 19 pick hardly a sure thing

With the Celtics holding the 19th pick in Thursday's NBA draft, we decided to take a look at No. 19 picks over the past 25 years. It isn't an impressive list, unless you are OK with the likes of Hakim Warrick, Jamaal Magloire and Rod Strickland. Grizzlies big man Zach Randolph did put things together this past season, nine years after he was taken 19th by the Trail Blazers. No. 19 picks who have played for the Celtics include Acie Earl, Dee Brown, Walter McCarty and Scot Pollard. Check out the entire list at the Green Street blog.

List: Boston athletes who requested a trade

Last week, offensive lineman Logan Mankins expressed his frustration with the Patriots by requesting a trade. As is often the case, money is the root of the player’s discontent. Other times, a lack of playing time leads to a request for change of scenery. And there are other reasons as well. We've compiled a list of 10 Boston athletes who requested, demanded or pushed to be traded by their behavior. Check it out at the LEEInks blog.

Red Sox bested by Rockies, Chacin

Jon Lester pitched six strong innings, allowing just one run on six hits while striking out six and walking one, but it wasn't enough as the Red Sox dropped a 2-1 decision to the Rockies Tuesday night at Coors Field in the teams' series opener. Lester was out-dueled buy Colorado starter Jhoulys Chacin, who walked five in his 6 2/3 innings, but only surrendered three hits while not giving up a single run.

 

The lone run given up by Lester came in the fifth inning when Chris Nelson -- who managed his first major league hit -- came around on Todd Helton's two-out single.

 

Helton struck again in the eighth inning when he singled with one out off the right field wall off reliever Hideki Okajima. The first baseman moved to second when Carlos Gonzalez' bloop fell between left fielder Daniel Nava, center fielder Mike Cameron, and shortstop Marco Scutaro. He then came in with an insurance run thanks to Ryan Spilborghs grounder to...
