Lackey overpowers former club as Sox win

Red Sox starter John Lackey allowed just two hits and one run in seven dominating innings of work, helping lead his new club past his former one in Boston's 3-1 victory over the Angels Wednesday night at Fenway. Lackey (3-1) recorded 14 of his 21 outs by ground balls and now has turned in five quality starts this year, tied for the most in the American League.

 

Though the Sox got just three runs on 11 hits, Lackey was able to make that offensive output stand up. David Ortiz delivered an opposite-field homer as one of his two hits, and Adrian Beltre continued his hot streak (.435 average in his last 12 games) by crushing a homer to center.

 

Jonathan Papelbon delivered a perfect ninth for his eighth save of the young season.

Flying high: Bruins one win from sweep

PHILADELPHIA -- Blake Wheeler and Miroslav Satan scored 94 seconds apart in the first six minutes of the first period to erase Boston's only deficit of the series as the Bruins dominated the lifeless Philadelphia Flyers, 4-1, on Wednesday night at the Wachovia Center to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series. 

 

Philadelphia gained its first and only lead of the series when Aaron Asham scored at 2:32 of the first period. But Wheeler scored less than two minutes later to tie the game. Satan scored his fifth of the playoffs at 5:45 to give the Bruins the lead for good. 

 

Mark Recchi added a power-play goal for insurance early in the third and Patrice Bergeron scored an empty-net goal late for the final tally. Meanwhile, Tuukka Rask turned away 34 of 35 shots.

 

The Bruins can clinch the series in a four-game sweep here on Friday night in Game 4 of the...

Ortiz homers against Angels

Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz homered against Angels starter Joel Pineiro in the bottom of the fourth inning of Wednesday's contest at Fenway Park. Ortiz lofted an 83 mph changeup away into the Monster seats over the left field wall for his fourth homer of the season, giving the Sox a 2-0 lead. Sox manager Terry Francona cited Ortiz' track record of success against Pineiro in explaining the decision to have him start, and in the early stages of Wednesday's game, that logic proved sound, as Ortiz recorded hits in each of his first two plate appearances of the night.
