Report: Sox recall Podsednik

According to a report from Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com, the Red Sox will recall outfielder Scott Podsednik from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Rosenthal did not report the corresponding move, but Cody Ross is expected to be headed to the disabled list on Tuesday with a broken bone in his foot. There is also the possibility that Ryan Sweeney could be placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list, which would mean seven Sox outfielders would be on the DL.

Podsednik, 36, was acquired by the Sox from the Phillies on May 11 and hit .323 in nine games with Pawtucket. He has played with the Mariners, Brewers, White Sox, Rockies, Royals and Dodgers during his 10-year major league career but spent the 2011 season in the minor leagues. Podsednik, an All-Star and World Series winner with the White Sox in 2005, led the majors in steals with 70 in 2004.

Garnett calls Philadelphia fans 'fair-weather'

Following the Celtics' 101-85 blowout of the 76ers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, Kevin Garnett praised the hometown Garden crowd for carrying them through the critical third quarter while tossing a not-so-subtle dig Philadelphia's way in the process.

"Not even close," said Garnett of Philly fans compared to Boston fans. "Not even close. You got fans, and then you got fair-weather fans. Take it how you want."

Garnett finished with 20 points on 8-of-17 shooting to go along with six rebounds and a pair of steals, and the Celtics take a 3-2 lead into Game 6 against the Sixers in Philadelphia on Wednesday night.

Youkilis doubles, walks twice for PawSox

BALTIMORE -- Red Sox corner infielder Kevin Youkilis doubled and walked twice in four plate appearances in what was likely the last game of his rehab assignment. He played all nine innings at third base for Triple-A Pawtucket, though he was involved in just one play (an early groundout).

Youkilis went 4-for-11 with two doubles, three walks and four strikeouts in four games with the PawSox. He will now travel to Baltimore on Tuesday to be examined by the Sox. Assuming that there are no setbacks, the 33-year-old -- who has been on the disabled list for three weeks due to a back strain -- is expected to be activated for Tuesday's contest against Baltimore.

"Sounds like he’s just what the doctor ordered," said Sox manager Bobby Valentine.

The Sox are considering keeping Will Middlebrooks on their big league roster with Youkilis back. Given that Cody Ross will be placed on the disabled list on Tuesday, the team is reluctant to...

Patriots sign sixth-round pick Nate Ebner

The Patriots announced Monday night they have signed sixth-round draft pick Nate Ebner. Ebner, a 6-foot, 205-pound defensive back from Ohio State, was selected with the 197th pick overall in the 2012 draft. He was a special teams player and reserve safety during his three seasons at Ohio State. A former world-class rugby player, he originally joined Ohio State as a walk-on in 2009. Last season, he played in all 12 games and was named the team’s outstanding special teams player. Ebner is the fourth member of New England's rookie class to sign a contract, joining second-rounder Tavon Wilson and seventh-round selections Alfonzo Dennard and Jeremy Ebert.

Bass: 'Reverend Dooling' delivered 'sermon'

With the prospects of heading to Philadelphia needing a win just to stay alive in the series facing them squarely in the face, the Celtics needed answers quickly at halftime Monday. They got the answers from Brandon Bass and the inspiration from Keyon Dooling as the Celtics outscored the Sixers, 54-35, in the final 24 minutes to walk away from Game 5 with a 101-85 win in Game 5 Monday night. 

The Sixers dominated the first half, but led by just three at the half, 50-47. That's when Doc Rivers and Dooling spoke to the team about playing better defense. Ironically, it was the 18 points scored by Bass that fired the Celtics up on offense, as he outscored the Sixers, 18-16, by himself. Now Bass and the Celtics can close out the Sixers Wednedsay night in Philadelphia with a win, and move on to the Eastern Conference finals for the third time in five years.

"With the same approach we took tonight, with defensive intensity," Bass said of...
