Mashup: 2nd incident for Braves' McDowell

High-profile attorney Gloria Allred, who on Wednesday stood with Giants fan Justin Quinn and accused Braves coach Roger McDowell of making crude comments, gestures and threats to fans over the weekend, said Thursday that a second fan has contacted her about an incident involving McDowell in another state. The commissioner's office said it is waiting for the Braves to finish gathering information before making a decision about possible punishment.

Also in the news, Major League Baseball acknowledged it is considering how to punish White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen for tweeting during a game Wednesday night in violation of league rules. Guillen had been ejected from the game at Yankee Stadium for arguing with an umpire when he tweeted sarcastic comments about the situation.

Youkilis 'good to play' after jamming hip

Both Red Sox manager Terry Francona and Kevin Youkilis said the third baseman should be ready to when the team returns to Fenway Park Friday to play the Mariners after he left Thursday night's win in Baltimore with a jammed hip.

"I just slid and it got a little locked up," Youkilis told reporters after the Red Sox' 6-2 victory over the Orioles. "As the game went on, it locked up a little bit more, but I should be good to play [Friday]. It was bugging me, and Tito said, 'Give it a rest so you can play tomorrow.' "

The hip injury, which forced Youkilis out of the game in the eighth inning, occurred in the first inning when he slid into second base in trying to break up an eventual double-play. The cleanup hitter made three more plate appearances, coming away with a flyout, strikeout and walk before being replaced by Jed Lowrie.

Youkilis is hitting .208 but has an OPS of .890, best on the team. In eight games on the road...

Pats trade No. 28 to NO for future 1st
By: DJ Bean

The Patriots traded the 28th overall pick of the 2011 NFL draft to the Saints Thursday, acquiring the 56th overall pick and New Orleans' first-round pick in 2012. After securing the 28th pick, the Saints selected Alabama running back Mark Ingram. 

With the move, the Patriots now have three second-round picks on Friday and two first-round picks in 2012.

Solder of fortune: Pats take Colorado OT
By: DJ Bean

The Patriots selected Colorado offensive tackle Nate Solder 17th overall in the NFL draft Thursday night. Solder stands at a mammoth 6-foot-8 and 319 pounds.

Solder is one of the more raw prospects to go in the first round, as he is still getting used to playing tackle after being recruited as a tight end (a transition that is not uncommon). 

“I’ve been playing tackle for three years now, which isn’t a whole lot of time, so there’s things I need to refine with in my technique constantly,” he said at the scouting combine in February. “I take some of that with a grain of salt, but people who know what they’re talking about and that I listen to [say] I need to refine some of that stuff.”

The Patriots had the 17th overall pick as a result of the 2009...

Lester, Ellsbury lead Red Sox past O's

Jon Lester continued his stellar pitching in the season's first month, while Jacoby Ellsbury, Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Carl Crawford all pitched in with important hits as the Red Sox finished off their nine-game road trip with a 6-2 win over the Orioles Thursday night at Camden Yards.

Lester lowered his ERA to 2.52, allowing just two runs on four hits over eight innings. The lefty, who threw 108 pitches, hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his last five starts, with Thursday's outing serving as Lester's longest stint of the season.

Ellsbury paced the Red Sox' offense, coming away with his second straight three-hit night, raising his batting average to .264. The outfielder's biggest hit of the night game in the Sox' three-run eighth inning when he drove in two with a single to center. Ellsbury's RBI single came after Saltalamacchia broke open a one-run game with a bases-loaded, no-out single.

The Red Sox were able to take the lead...
