Rays upset after Tampa fans boo Manny

Rays manager Joe Maddon came to the defense of Manny Ramirez after the former Red Sox slugger was booed by the home fans Tuesday while going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts as Tampa Bay lost for the fourth time in four games this season, 5-3 to the Angels.

Ramirez signed a $2 million free agent deal with the Rays in the offseason. He has just a single and one RBI in 16 at-bats.

"I want the fans to know he works, this man really works, this man really cares," Maddon said. "It's not working for him right now, but he's going to be just fine. … We need to let him be himself and let Manny be Manny and go up there and not try to carry us. The last thing I want him to do is feel like he has to carry us."

Added outfielder B.J. Upton: "Here's a man who has had an unbelievable career. This game is not easy. His start obviously hasn't been what people wanted it to be. But if everybody could do it, everybody in America...

Mashup: Yanks off track with subway slight

The Yankees — who squandered a late four-run lead and lost in 10 innings to the Twins Tuesday night — are involved in a "misunderstanding" with the Metropolitan Transit Authority. The team for many years has had a between-innings scoreboard segment in which three MTA trains race to Yankee Stadium. The MTA allowed the Yankees to use its name and those of the trains — B, D and 4 — because it promoted public transportation, and all the MTA asked was that the team not sell sponsorship of the segment. When the Yankees went ahead and sold sponsorship to Subway restaurants this year, the MTA tried to contact the team. The Yanks not only did not return the MTA's call, they changed the names of the trains. "It would be a win-win for everybody involved to get the numbers and letters of these three subway lines back on the trains," an MTA official said. "Hopefully it will happen."

Pedroia: 'You can't keep a good man down'

CLEVELAND — Here is some of the reaction from the Red Sox after they fell to 0-4 thanks to a 3-1 loss to the Indians Tuesday night at Progressive Field:

JOSH BECKETT: “There’s too much history here. Everybody here knows how to win. We’ve got to figure it out. Nobody is going to come out of the blue and feel sorry for us and help us out. We know what we’ve got to do. We’ve got to go out and execute.”

DAVID ORTIZ: “Everybody’s trying, dog. Everybody’s trying hard. All it’s going to take is one click, man. Just one click. That’s what turns things around.”

“When you’re facing this kind of situation, you definitely want to get the first one out of the way. And keep on moving. That’s how things get started. Everyone’s trying. Probably some of us are trying a little too hard, but that’s baseball. Things...

Rondo: C's made 'a little statement' in win

After scoring 16 points and dishing out 13 assists in a 99-82 win over the Sixers Tuesday night at TD Garden, Rajon Rondo said the Celtics made a statement by shutting down the team they may face in the opening round of the playoffs.

“Tonight was a good test for us," Rondo said. "That might be a first-round team and we did a good job of making a little statement that it’s going to be hard to beat us in a seven-game series."

The Celtics trailed by two after one as Rondo's counterpart -- Jrue Holiday -- had 11 points in the first quarter. Holiday was held scoreless the rest of the game. Now, the 54-23 Celtics prepare for the 57-20 Bulls in Chicago Thursday night with a chance to draw within two games of the Eastern Conference leaders. 

"It’s a different game versus Chicago and Miami," Rondo added. "Obviously, the intensity will be a lot greater, but in the playoffs, the first round, there...

Red Sox still winless after loss to Tribe

CLEVELAND -- The Red Sox' struggles continued despite changing venues, as they dropped a 3-1 decision to the Indians Tuesday night before an announced crowd of 9,025 at Progressive Field.

Josh Beckett took the loss for the Red Sox, giving up three runs over five innings. The Sox starter struck out four, walked four and threw 106 pitches. Beckett allowed two runs in the fourth inning on RBI hits by Orlando Cabrera and Jack Hannahan, before giving up a single run in the fifth when Carlos Santana notched a sacrifice fly.

The Red Sox stranded the tying run at first base in the ninth inning when David Ortiz flew out to left field against Cleveland closer Chris Perez.

The Sox, who managed just four baserunners after the fourth inning, finished with only four hits. Their only offense came in the second inning when Jarrod Saltalamacchia plated Ortiz with an opposite-field single, coming off a Josh Tomlin 0-2 pitch. The visitors' attempt at adding...
