Mashup: Flyers pilfer pucks

The Flyers are down 2-0 in the Stanley Cup finals to the Blackhawks, but they aren't going away quietly — or with class. Philadelphia defenseman Chris Pronger has taken the puck at the end of each of the first two games and, according to him, tossed it in the garbage, "where it belongs." This led to a postgame confrontation after Game 2 and a minor controversy. Read more about that, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Wednesday's Morning Mashup.

Cameron to see specialist

Red Sox outfielder Mike Cameron will see a specialist on Wednesday to determine the status of his abdomen. An MRI on Tuesday revealed that the original tear that the 37-year-old suffered on the right side of his abdomen is now healed. Now, however, the outfielder has been dealing with similar pain on his left side, and the specialist will determine whether there is a new tear on that side.

 

"He's got a lot of pain. We've got to figure out what and how to deal with it," said Sox manager Terry Francona. "We'll try to make a good judgment on wehre he is."

 

Cameron said that he came through the game on Sunday (his third straight, and his first day game after a night game since returning from the disabled list) without a problem. However, after he flew home to Georgia following the game, he started experiencing significant discomfort that was reminiscent of the injury (which he referred to as sports hernias...

Late explosion powers Sox past A's

A Red Sox offense that could muster little over the first four innings against Athletics starter Gio Gonzalez exploded for nine runs over the next four frames to extend the team's winning streak to three games. Much of the damage was delivered by Victor Martinez, who went 5-for-5 with four doubles, two runs and two runs batted in, matching his career high in hits and setting a new career standard for two-baggers. Four of his hits came against left-handers, against whom he's now hitting .431 with a 1.306 OPS.

 

The Sox commenced their comeback from a 4-0 deficit when Adrian Beltre slammed his sixth homer of the season on a hanging curve from Gonzalez in the bottom of the fifth inning. From there, the Sox continued to pile on, amassing nine runs and 10 hits in innings five through eight.

 

That made a winner out of...

McHale on coaching C's: 'See where it goes'

Celtics great and Hall of Famer Kevin McHale, in an NBA TV media conference call on Tuesday, was asked if he was interested in the Celtics' head coaching job should Doc Rivers leave at the end of the season.

 

"That's down the road, we'll see where it goes," said the three-time NBA champion and long-time friend of Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge. "Doc staying or leaving will be his choice."

 

McHale picked the Celtics to beat the Lakers in the finals but admits that there may be bias involved in the decision-making process.

 

"It's going to be an interesting series," said McHale. "Paul Pierce was the best player [in the 2008 finals] and and swung that series over in favor of the Celtics. It's a coin-toss series. Just because my heart is into it, I'll go with the Celtics."

Sox notes: Cameron has abdomen soreness
By: DJ Bean

Speaking with reporters prior to the first of three with the Oakland Athletics, Red Sox manager Terry Francona said that outfielder Mike Cameron is experiencing abdomen soreness, which is why he was left out of the lineup for Tuesday night's game. Francona said that Cameron, who went 2-fot-3 on Sunday with two doubles and a pair of RBI, will see the Red Sox team doctor Tuesday.

 

"We were really excited Sunday that he felt good," Francona said. "Some of that excitement we felt Sunday is a little tempered now."

 

In other Red Sox injury news, Francona said that Jacoby Ellsbury took some swings in the batting cage and that the team is still figuring out a plan for Josh Beckett, who has been on the DL with a lower back strain since May 19. Francona said the team will check with the right-hander Tuesday and "figure out where to go the next couple of days."
