Sobotka on penalty: 'I heard my name'

The too-many-men penalty that the Bruins took at 11:10 of the third period occurred when center Marc Savard had signaled for a change with his stick up heading toward the bench and then passed the bench to continue on the back-check. Center Vladimir Sobotka jumped on the ice and took a few steps before circling around and coming back to the bench, but at that point the referees had called the penalty. Simon Gagne scored for the Flyers on the power play 1:42 later for the series-deciding goal.

 

"I don't really know. I knew that [Marc Savard] was changing and I heard my name and I jumped on the ice and we had six guys on the ice," Sobotka said. "I thought he was going for a change but I didn't see that he was on the back-check. ... I just heard my name. I don't want to talk about it."

Ortiz, Sox smash Tigers

The Red Sox slammed four home runs on Friday, including a pair by designated hitter David Ortiz, en route to a 7-2 victory over the Tigers.

 

The Sox jumped out to a 5-0 lead they would never relinquish in the top of the first inning, with Dustin Pedroia putting his team on the board with a two-run bomb (his eighth of the year), and Ortiz adding a three-run moonshot against starter Max Scherzer. Ortiz later tacked on a solo shot, and now has six homers this season, while Bill Hall went deep in the ninth for his second homer of 2010.

 

That support proved ample for Sox starter Clay Buchholz. Though the right-hander struggled at times with his command, walking five and striking out three in 6.1 innings of work, he allowed just three hits and one run. He is now 4-3 with a 3.86 ERA.

Too many men again: Flyers finish comeback

Simon Gagne scored a power play goal with 7:08 remaining in the third period and the Flyers erased a 3-0 first period deficit and rallied to shock the Bruins, 4-3, in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals at TD Garden. The goal came while the Bruins were trying to kill a penalty for too many men on the ice. And like in 1979 against Montreal, the goal came in the third period of Game 7 and helped eliminate the Bruins from the playoffs. 

 

The Bruins become the first team in major North American sports to blow a 3-0 series lead since the 2004 New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series while the Flyers join the '04 Red Sox, the 1975 New York Islanders and the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs to overcome a 3-0 hole.

 

The Bruins came out blazing and roared to a 3-0 lead and were just a crossbar and a post away from two more scores in the first period. Milan Lucic scored on the power play and then even...

Ortiz homers in first two at-bats

Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz crushed homers in each of his first two at-bats on Friday against Detroit Tigers starter Max Scherzer. In the top of the first inning, he hit a three-run homer to right-center. In the top of the fourth, he hit a solo bast down the right field line.

 

The multi-homer game was the second of Ortiz' season, the 36th of his career and the 34th of his Red Sox career. Ortiz ranks third in franchise history in multi-homer games, just behind Ted Williams (37) and Jim Rice (35).

 

He is now hitting .355 with a 1.253 OPS and five homers in 34 May plate appearances.

Minor Details Ep. 98: Youth without the transition - Rusney Castillo and Brock Holt

How can teams acquire players who are entering their primes without having to live through the potentially massive transition of prospects coming from the minors to the big leagues? The Red Sox have two such case studies. The signing of Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo represents one effort to acquire a player for his prime years for whom the transition to big league-caliber competition might not be turbulent. Red Sox assistant director of player personnel discusses the scouting process involved with landing Castillo. The episode also features Brock Holt, the one rookie who played at a consistently high level for the Red Sox this year. Holt explores some of the distinctions that might help to explain why he did not experience some of the struggles that characterized the seasons of Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr.
