Unexpected hero gives Sox walkoff win

The Red Sox claimed a stunning 7-6 walkoff victory over the Rangers, in no small part on the strength of contributions from a pair of players who did not begin the day on their major league roster.

 

Darnell McDonald -- who was added to the roster less than two hours before the game when Jacoby Ellsbury was placed on the D.L. -- hit a bases-loaded, two-out walkoff single off the Green Monster off of reliever Frankie Francisco in the bottom of the ninth to propel the Sox to a win and allow them to snap their five-game losing streak.

 

The Sox erased a 6-2 deficit en route to their first victory since last Wednesday. Trailing 6-2 in the bottom of the sixth, the Sox received something of a gift from the Rangers when Josh Reddick -- called up from Triple-A Pawtucket to fill in for the injured Mike Cameron on Tuesday -- hit a cloud-scraping pop-up with two out and two on in the bottom of the sixth. But Rangers left fielder Josh...

Celtics rout Heat to take a 2-0 series lead

The Celtics defeated the Heat by a final of 106-77 to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven first-round series on Tuesday night. The Celtics had a 21-0 run in the second quarter and an 18-0 run in the third to set the tone in the rout. Miami shot just 38.2 percent in the loss.

 

Ray Allen connected on seven three-pointers and finished with a team-high 25 points. Glen Davis started in place of the suspended Kevin Garnett and scored 23 points with eight rebounds.

Red Sox trade minor leaguer to White Sox

The Red Sox traded minor league pitcher Andrew Dobies to the White Sox in exchange for a player to be named later or cash. Dobies, who turned 27 on Tuesday, was a third-round pick by the Sox in 2004.

 

The left-hander was off to a nice start to the 2010 season, having allowed one run in five innings while striking out eight in three relief appearances for Double-A Portland. In parts of six seasons in the Red Sox system, he had a 24-25 record and 4.08 ERA while striking out 7.1 batters per nine innings and walking 2.5 hitters per nine.

Surgery not ruled out for Cameron

Red Sox outfielders Mike Cameron and Jacoby Ellsbury both were placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday. Cameron was sidelined retroactive to April 19 with a lower abdominal strain, while Ellsbury's D.L. stint was made retroactive to April 12, the day after he absorbed a left chest contusion in a collision with third baseman Adrian Beltre.

 

"I had no choice. If it would have been anything else – shoulder, groin – I’d probably still try to play. But the fact of where this is located at, there’s nothing that you could possibly do," said Cameron. "Most people wouldn’t have been able to get out of bed, let alone play a baseball game. I was trying to play baseball, and my body just said that enough is enough – you can’t go no more. It had to literally lock me up for me to understand that, this is what it’s going to take for you to stop playing and that’s it."
