Mashup: Jets coach Ryan loses 100 pounds

Jets coach Rex Ryan went public Thursday about his weight loss, saying that he wanted to reach a milestone before commenting. Ryan, who underwent Lap-Band surgery in 2010, said he has lost 106 pounds -- including 50 since the end of last season -- and is down to 242. His waist went from 48 inches to 38.

"I wanted to break that 100-pound barrier before I really said, 'All right, guys, this is what it is,' " said Ryan, who was not paid to have the surgery but has since been hired by the company to talk about his experience.

Ryan, 49, said it was a wakeup call when he checked his weight before the 2009 AFC championship game.

"I thought, 'Let me get on the scale,' I'm thinking I'm going to be 300 or 310, around that range. I'm 348 pounds," he recalled. "I was like, 'I've got to do something.' I couldn't believe it. I swear to you, I turned around to look to see if there was somebody behind me. But it was just me."...

Ross again: Walkoff HR lifts Sox to win

Cody Ross did it again for the Red Sox, belting a three-run, game-winning walkoff homer to the Monster seats in left in the bottom of the ninth to lift the Red Sox to a dramatic 3-1 win over the White Sox Thursday night at Fenway.

For six innings, White Sox rookie Jose Quintana was nearly unhittable. He retired 18 of the first 19 batters, with only Pedro Ciriaco reaching on a triple to left-center with two outs in the third after the first eight Red Sox went down in order. Quintana allowed five hits over eight scoreless innings, striking out two and walking none.

Clay Buchholz was nearly as impressive, allowing his only run in the fourth when Adam Dunn opened with a leadoff walk, Paul Konerko singled Dunn to third and Alex Rios drove Dunn home with a sacrifice fly to make it 1-0. Buchholz held the White Sox to just six hits and one run over eight strong innings, throwing 107 pitches, striking out six and walking just one.

Melo injured in C's summer league loss

Jimmer Fredette's 19 points led a balanced Kings attack in a 91-82 defeat of the Celtics in the Las Vegas summer league, and Fab Melo's bruised left hand added injury to insult.

Melo grabbed three rebounds in 13 scoreless minutes and will be re-examined by the C's training staff. He joins fellow Syracuse product and Celtics second-round selection Kris Joseph (hyperextended knee) on the injury list. The C's also played without JaJuan Johnson, E'Twaun Moore and Sean Williams, all of whom appear headed to the Rockets along with a second-round pick in a sign-and-trade deal for restricted free agent swingman Courtney Lee, according to multiple reports.

The Celtics fell to 2-1 in Las Vegas and 6-2 overall after finishing 4-1 in Orlando last week. Dionte Christmas led the C's with 19 points against Sacramento, while Jared Sullinger grabbed 10 rebounds but scored only six points. Fredette and Thomas Robinson (15 points, 16 rebounds) led five Kings in...
