Sox hold on for comeback win in Bronx

For the second straight night, the Red Sox found themselves in a massive five-run hole early. For the second straight night, they wiped out that deficit to take a two-run lead into the ninth inning, which they entrusted to closer Jonathan Papebon.


But one night after Papelbon allowed four runs in the ninth in a brutal loss, the closer bent but did not break. He allowed one run, but stranded the tying run on third base, allowing the Sox to claim a dramatic 7-6 victory.


The Sox rallied against Yankees relievers Joba Chamberlain and Mariano Rivera, with significant help from the faltering Yankees defense. Boston pushed across four runs in the eighth against Chamberlain, a rally that was commenced by a fielding error by Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez. That opened the door for an RBI double by J.D. Drew (2-for-4), a two-run single from Kevin Youkilis (2-for-3 with a homer and 3 RBI) and a game-tying single from David...

Two for two: Celtics take 2-0 series lead

Paul Pierce had 28 points and Rajon Rondo added 25 as the Celtics beat the Orlando Magic, 95-92, to take a 2-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference finals. It is the first time in their illustrious history that the Celtics have won the first two games of a series on the road. Vince Carter missed a pair of free throws with 31 seconds remaining and Jameer Nelson missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer as the Celtics head home for Saturday night's Game 3 in complete command of the series. 


The Celtics led by 11 early in the fourth on a 3-pointer by Rasheed Wallace but the Magic came all the way back to take a brief lead, 90-89, on Vince Carter's jumper with 3:36 remaining. But Kevin Garnett's fadeaway jumper with 2:46 left put the Celtics up for good, 91-90. The Magic were led by Dwight Howard, who scored a game-high 30 points.

Beckett leaves game with back tightness

NEW YORK -- Red Sox starting pitcher Josh Beckett left his start against the Yankees Tuesday with two outs in the fifth inning with tightness in his lower back. Beckett had missed his last start with back spasms. The righty, who signaled there was a problem when Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell came to the mound to visit after a two-run double from Robinson Cano, allowed five runs on five hits, walking three and striking out six in 4 2/3 innings. Beckett threw 103 pitches and was replaced by reliever Manny Delcarmen. The Yankees held a 5-0 advantage at the time of the pitcher's exit.

Ortiz on Lowell's situation: 'It bothers me'

NEW YORK -- David Ortiz, who was in the lineup as the Red Sox designated hitter against Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia, talked prior to the series finale at Yankee Stadium about how difficult is has been to witness Mike Lowell having to deal with diminished playing time


"As good as a player as he is, there's not a guy like him personally. He's a great player, and the fact that he's stuck here right now not playing, it bothers me," Ortiz said. "I'm not used to seeing Mikey not playing. You can't waste a player like that. But what you going to do?"


Just moments earlier from Ortiz expressing his opinion on his teammate of five seasons, Lowell had relayed his displeasure with his situation, telling reporters that it might be better for the Red Sox if he wasn't on the roster. (Click here...
