Mashup: Rays' Price injures neck with towel

There were a number of bizarre injuries in baseball last year, and we're off to a strong start in 2012. Rays pitcher David Price injured himself during Thursday's spring training game against the Tigers while using a towel to wipe sweat off his neck. Price said he "felt a little pop," and left the game after two innings (he was scheduled to pitch three) with minor neck spasms.

"It's happened to me two times before," Price explained. "The towel just catches the back of my head and it pulls my neck forward. I just felt it a little bit in back of my neck and just wanted to be cautious with it."

Manager Joe Maddon had a little fun with the situation, suggesting Price assign someone to be a designated towel-wiper for future games.

Johnny Rocket: Big hit, goal in B's win

Johnny Boychuk's slap shot from the right point that beat Jhonas Enroth with just over seven minutes left in regulation gave the Bruins the lead for good, and David Krejci added insurance just three minutes later as the B's beat the Sabres, 3-1, Thursday night at TD Garden. Boychuk's huge hit on Sabres star Thomas Vanek with just under 10 minutes left in the third set the tempo for the defending champs, who won their 40th game of the season and now stand at 40-23-3.  

The Bruins were finally able to claim consecutive wins for the first time in nearly two months, last winning back-to-back games against Winnipeg and Montreal on Jan. 10 and 12. Tim Thomas, who had allowed at least three goals in each of his last three starts -- including four in each of his last two -- rebounded to stop 19-of-20 shots. 

The Sabres broke the ice late in the first period when Jason Pominville came down the right wing and blasted a slap shot just above...

Ainge: Won't deal future assets for present

Celtics president Danny Ainge said on The Big Show that while there's "nothing close" to happening, he won't surrender a future asset to help the current team. "It's a fine line," Ainge said. "But I'm not going to sacrifice future assets to help our bench right at this minute." Ainge said that he gets a "handful" of calls a day but that nothing is imminent as the March 15 trade deadline approaches.

"As of right now we have nothing close to happening," he said. "It's not from a lack of trying. Not necessarily to make major changes, but to make small changes at least."

Ainge said that he feels his roster is in better shape now than in 2003, when he took over basketball operations, both in terms of talent and contracts. 

"You've got to have some good things go your way to rebuild. We've got some good pieces," he said. "We've got some players still under contract...

Iglesias impresses in Sox' loss to Cards

JUPITER, Fla. -- The Red Sox suffered their first defeat in Grapefruit League play, as the Cardinals rallied for six runs in the eighth inning against relievers Chris Carpenter and Garrett Mock to claim a 9-3 victory.

Carpenter, in his first game appearance for the Red Sox since being acquired as compensation from the Cubs for Theo Epstein, had a strong first inning of work in the seventh before losing the plate in the eighth. The hard-throwing right-hander gave up three walks and a single before being lifted for Mock, the former Nationals big leaguer whom the Sox signed to a minor league deal last week. Mock ended up allowing a sacrifice fly and a three-run double along with another run-scoring hit.

For the Sox, Josh Beckett worked three shutout innings and Jose Iglesias delivered a pair of highlights, making a terrific...

Slow start dooms BC in loss to NC State

Boston College did not score a point for more than seven minutes to start the game, and the Eagles' season came to a close Thursday with a 78-57 loss to NC State in the opening round of the ACC tournament in Atlanta.

Ryan Anderson finished his rookie season with a 22-point, 12-rebound outing, and Lonnie Jackson added 10 points for BC (9-22).

Scott Wood hit 5-of-9 3-pointers en route to scoring 22 points for NC State (21-11), which advances to play fourth-seeded Virginia in Friday's quarterfinals.

After giving up the game's first 14 points, the Eagles trailed by 13 at the break before making a run early in the second half. When Anderson hit a layup with 14:47 left, it capped a 9-0 run and got BC within six at 43-37. It was a nine-point margin with 6:44 left after another Anderson layup, but NC State ended the game on a 20-8 run.
