Red Sox Recap: Knees and lower halves

While the Red Sox and Tim Wakefield were getting roughed up by the Royals, 12-5, Friday night at Fenway Park, there was plenty of injury drama to go around. Before the game Jacoby Ellsbury talked about how he came back too early from his rib injury -- resulting in a trip to the disabled list -- while Daisuke Matsuzaka explained what he meant when describing his "sore lower half" Thursday night. After the the Sox loss Dustin Pedroia fired back in regard to the line of questioning about whether or not his knee was to blame for a recent slump. There was also David Ortiz talking about how he was slapped with a new perspective on life after attending Jose Lima's wake. Oh, and Bill Hall actually pitched a perfect ninth inning.

Pierce: 'All 28 teams have to watch us now'

Paul Pierce, appearing on the post-game dais with Ray Allen, took time to relish his second trip to the NBA finals in three seasons following a 96-84 win over the Orlando Magic in Game 6 Friday night at TD Garden. 

 

"You never take these moments for granted," said Pierce, who led the Celtics to the Eastern Conference title with 31 points and 13 rebounds, his best performance of the series. "This is an opportunity for my second trip to the finals. There's nothing like it."

Pedroia: 'Nothing wrong with my knee'

Following the Red Sox’ 12-5 loss to the Royals, Dustin Pedroia insisted that the knee he injured on a slide in Detroit on May 15 wasn’t the cause for his recent hitting slump.

 

 

“There’s nothing. There’s nothing wrong with my knee,” he said after going 0-for-5 Friday night. “I don’t make excuses for my play. I play hard every day. I don’t make excuses if I get injured or something. I go out there every day and try to hit a thousand. I’m tring to get a hit every time up. It’s really not working out right now. I can guarantee you that I won’t end the year hitting .260 or whatever the [expletive] I’m hitting now. I can guarantee you that. I don’t guarantee a lot, but that’s for damn sure.
