Lester, Sox ace test against Angels in 7-3 win

Jon Lester struck out 11 over seven dominant innings Tuesday night, and Adrian Gonzalez hit his first Fenway Park home run as the Red Sox pounded the Angels, 7-3.

The victory marked the third straight for the Sox against one of the American League's elite right-handers. The Sox emerged victorious against Dan Haren (4-2) after having won games featuring Felix Hernandez of the Mariners on Sunday and Jered Weaver of the Angels on Monday.

Haren and the Angels carried a 1-0 lead into the sixth on the strength of a Mike Trumbo solo homer in the second inning, but the Sox rallied against Haren. Jacoby Ellsbury extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a double, then scored on a two-out single to left by Gonzalez. Gonzalez then came around to score on a double by David Ortiz and an RBI single to right by Jed Lowrie that gave Boston a lead it wouldn't relinquish.

The Sox added on a single run in the seventh on Jarrod Saltalamacchia's RBI...

Heat take Game 2 and 2-0 series lead

MIAMI — LeBron James scored 35 points and Dwyane Wade added 28 to lead the Heat to a 102-91 victory over the Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series and a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

The Heat took a 72-67 lead into the fourth quarter, but the Celtics — led by Paul Pierce and bench players Jeff Green, Glen Davis, Delonte West and Nenad Krstic — rallied to tie the game at 80 on a pair of Pierce free throws with 7:09 left. That's when James took over the game, scoring seven points (highlighted by a follow-up dunk and foul on West) in a 14-0 Heat run that put the game away.

The Celtics were paced by Rajon Rondo, who scored 20 points with 12 assists. Kevin Garnett added 16 points (12 in the second half). This is the first time the Celtics are down 2-0 in a playoff series during Garnett's tenure with the club.

Game 3 is Saturday at TD Garden.

Youkilis a late lineup scratch

Kevin Youkilis was scratched from the Red Sox' lineup prior to the first pitch on Tuesday due to illness. In his absence, the Sox will have David Ortiz batting cleanup, with Jed Lowrie shifting from shortstop to third and Marco Scutaro added to the lineup as the shortstop, batting seventh.

While Youkilis is out, Jacoby Ellsbury, who suffered a contusion on the inside of his left knee while sliding into home on Monday, is back in the lineup on Tuesday against Angels starter Dan Haren. Ellsbury carries an 11-game hitting streak into the contest, with his last 10 games coming in the leadoff role.

Also of note: Dustin Pedroia, who is 0-for-12 in his career against Haren, is in the lineup, as he and Adrian Gonzalez remain the two members of the Sox to start every game this year. For matchup information, click here....

Spoelstra: 'We'll see different Rondo tonight'

MIAMI -- Erik Spoelstra met with the media before Game 2 of the Heat-Celtics series and was asked about Rajon Rondo. The Celtics' point guard struggled in Game 1, shooting 3-of-10 with five turnovers (including four in the fourth quarter) in the 99-90 Heat victory. 

"We'll see a different Rondo tonight," Spoelstra said. "He'll be much more aggressive. It was highly unusual for him to have three fouls in the first half and have to sit out. I think the Rondo you saw in the second half is the Rondo that we are prepared for."

BC LB Herzlich selected in UFL draft

Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich didn't hear his name called at the NFL draft this past weekend, but he was taken 51st overall in the UFL draft on Monday by the Omaha Nighthawks. Herzlich, the 2008 ACC defensive player of the year, overcame Ewing's Sarcoma in his left leg — he had a titanium rod placed in the leg — and returned to play for BC in 2010.

It's not known what route Herzlich will take at this time — he could still sign with an NFL team as an undrafted free agent once the lockout is lifted. (As of now, no team is allowed to sign UDFA's because of the labor situation.) However, there is no guarantee labor peace will return to the NFL anytime soon, which could leave the UFL as an option for the foreseeable future.

After the NFL draft, Herzlich tweeted: “Thanking everyone for their support tough times call for perseverance and a tough mind. Today sucked for me but everyone needs to pray...
