Sox strand 11 in 2-0 loss to M's

Call it missed opportunities. Call it not performing in the clutch. Call it leaving ducks on the pond.

However you want to characterize Saturday’s Red Sox’ loss at the hands of the Mariners, it will still go down in the books as a 2-0 shutout loss in which the Hometowne Team went a putrid 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position and 0-for-4 with the bases juiced.

Lost in the effort was a solid six-inning, two-run performance out of John Lackey. Lackey had his third quality start in a row to lower his season ERA – which stood at 15.58 before the streak – to a much nicer number of 5.65. With the loss, he drops to 2-3 after the month of April. Seattle starter Doug Fister went 5 2/3 strong, allowing five hits and five walks while striking out four.

Boston finishes April with an 11-15 record while Seattle finishes 13-15.

Stranded again: Red Sox offense stays silent

The Red Sox fell deeper into last-place in the American League East Saturday with a 2-0 loss to the Mariners at Fenway Park. The Sox finish April with an 11-15 mark, having lost their second straight to Seattle.

The Red Sox couldn't solve Seattle pitching when it counted, stranding 11 runners while going 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position. The Sox managed five hits and five walks against Mariners starter Doug Fister, but couldn't scratch out any runs against in the righty's 5 2/3 innings.

Taking the loss was Red Sox starter John Lackey, who gave up just two runs on seven hits over his six innings. The outing dropped Lackey's ERA to 5.65. The Mariners' two runs came on an RBI double from Milton Bradley in the third inning, and Jack Wilson's sacrifice fly in the sixth.

The only member of the Red Sox who managed multiple hits was Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who just missed a home run when doubling off the top of the left field wall. Adrian...

Krejci: Flyers 'let me know' about 2010

PHILADELPHIA -- While the Flyers were playing atrocious defense in front of Brian Boucher, they were also letting their big mouths do some talking, according to David Krecji. The Bruins forward, who got the scoring underway less than two minutes into Game 1 Saturday, said the Flyers were reminding him that the last time he was in Philadelphia for a playoff game, he suffered an injury that changed the momentum of the series. 

Krejci broke his wrist in Game 3 of the series last year, a game the Bruins won, 4-1. But Boston lost its top center - and momentum - as the Flyers came back to win four straight. 

"The guys from the other team, they let me know in the first period about last year," Krejci said. "But I tried to forget about those things. This is a new year, new season, new series. We have so many new players on our team. Half of the guys didn't even experience it last year so we didn't talk about it that much. ...

Bergeron: Flyers 'will bounce back'
By: DJ Bean

PHILADELPHIA -- The Bruins began the Eastern Conference semifinals by lighting up Brian Boucher and the Flyers to the tune of a 7-3 Boston victory Saturday. Boucher allowed five goals before being pulled in the second period, and though it marked the fourth time this postseason that the Flyers have had to make a goaltending change mid-game, the Bruins know better than to expect things to come that easy. 

"Philly's known for their comebacks, even within games, so you've always got to be on your toes," Tim Thomas, who gave up three goals on the other end, said after the contest. 

With the victory, the Bruins lead the series, 1-0, but won't get ahead of themselves. The B's had a 3-0 series lead a season ago before the Flyers won the final four contests to eliminate Boston.

"It's only one game, and yeah, they will bounce back," Patrice Bergeron, who had three assists in the victory, said. "We're going to make...
