Mashup: Roenick's 'tears of a clown'

Former NHL star Jeremy Roenick, now an NBC hockey analyst, got emotional during the telecast after the Blackhawks clinched the Stanley Cup Wednesday night.

Pedroia: 'My knee hurts. But I'll be fine'

CLEVELAND -- Speaking after the Red Sox' 8-7, series finale loss to the Indians Thursday night at Progressive Field, Dustin Pedroia said that his right knee is bothering him, but he plans on playing through it. Pedroia wore a knee brace for the first time, during the Sox' walk-off loss. "My knee hurts. But I’ll be fine. I don’t weigh that much, I don’t carry around a lot of weight. I’ll find a way to play through it." Pedroia originally hurt his knee May 15 when sliding into home in Detroit. Since the game against the Tigers, he has gone on to hit .189 (18-for-95), although he did claim his first two hits of the four-game series with the Indians Thursday night. "I'll heal while I play," he said. For more on the Red Sox, see the team page by clicking here.

Bench strength pulls C's even with Lakers

Glen Davis led one of the best bench efforts in Celtics playoff history with a 18 points as the Celtics held on for a 96-89 win over the Lakers in Game 4 of the NBA finals Thursday night at TD Garden. The reserve unit of Davis, Nate Robinson, Rasheed Wallace and Tony Allen played the first nine minutes of the fourth quarter and built the lead up to double figures. 

 

Davis made 7-of-10 shots from the field while Robinson added 12 off the bench to help the Celtics draw even in the championship series. With the best-of-seven match now tied, 2-2, it is assured of heading back to Los Angeles next Tuesday for a Game 6. The pivotal Game 5 is set for TD Garden on Sunday night at 8 p.m. Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 19. 

 

Kobe Bryant had a game-high 33 and Pau Gasol added 21 for the Lakers, whose bench was outscored, 36-18, by the Celtics reserves.

Bard can't close it out in Sox' loss

Daniel Bard allowed a bloop single by Russell Branyan into right field with two outs and the bases loaded, just over the outstretched glove of second baseman Dustin Pedroia, allowing two runs to score and giving the Indians an 8-7 win over the Red Sox Thursday night at Progressive Field. The hit came after Bard began the ninth inning by loading the bases but then getting Travis Hafner on a strikeout and Jhonny Peralta on a pop-up.

 

The Branyan hit ruined the heroics of Adrian Beltre, who had deposited a 2-0 pitch from Cleveland closer Kerry Wood over the left field wall for a two-out, two-run home run in the ninth inning to give the Sox the lead. The homer plated J.D. Drew, who was hit by a Wood pitch after the reliever retired Mike Lowell and Victor Martinez to start the frame.

 

Beltre's homer did prevent Jon Lester from taking his first loss since May 15, with the lefty getting a no-decision after allowing six runs on...

Youkilis leaves game with mild back spasms

CLEVELAND -- Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis was forced to leave the game between the Sox and Indians, Thursday night at Progressive Field, in the seventh inning with mild back spasms. Youkilis, who had led off the seventh with a ground out to third base, finished his night going 0-for-3 with a walk and a run. He was replaced in the bottom half of the seventh in the field by Mike Lowell. Youkilis leads all Red Sox players in games played, having appeared in all but one of the team's 62 games, having started all but two of them. For more on the Red Sox go to the team page by clicking here.
