Yankees pop Papelbon, Sox in walkoff

The Red Sox seemed on the verge of completing a monumental comeback in Yankee Stadium. Instead, they absorbed one of their most devastating defeats of the season, as Yankees outfielder Marcus Thames unloaded on a two-run homer to left off of Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon in the bottom of the ninth to give New York an 11-9 walkoff victory.

 

That erased a startling comeback by the Sox that had silenced Yankee Stadium just an inning earlier. After Daisuke Matsuzaka allowed the first six Yankees to reach base and fell behind by a 5-0 count in the first inning, Boston came all the way back on the strength of five homers. Victor Martinez -- who was dropped from third to fifth in the lineup after going 2-for-28 entering the game -- hit a pair of solo homers, while David Ortiz, J.D. Drew and Kevin Youkilis also went deep. Youkilis' two-run, eighth-inning homer gave the Sox their first lead of the game, and the Yankees trailed, 9-7, entering the...

Neely on The Big Show: 'Tough few days'

Bruins vice president Cam Neely called in to The Big Show on Monday afternoon to to talk about the Bruins' collapse in the Eastern Conference semifinals and discuss the future of the club with offseason personnel decisions looming. "We’re going to look top to bottom," Neely said. "Obviously, when you don’t win the last game of the hockey season, you have to improve your club, so we’re looking at all ways at doing what we need to do to improve the club."

 

Added Neely: "I think over the course of this next week, we’re going to sit down as a group and really just evaluate the whole season. I don’t think we should just look at it in this one little snapshot because the year as a whole didn’t go quite the way we had planned or expected."

 

Neely said he's still reeling from the Game 7 disaster. "Oh, it hit hard," he said. "It hit...

Francona: Cameron not quite ready

NEW YORK -- Speaking before his team's game with the Yankees at Yankee Stadium, Red Sox manager Terry Francona said that outfielder Mike Cameron is still experiencing some "tenderness" in his abdominal region, although not in the same spot that forced the 37-year-old on to the disabled list. Because of Cameron's condition he won't be activated to the Sox' 25-man roster and will most likely make another rehab appearance, at Double A Portland Wednesday.

 

"There was certainly some thought about bringing him here today, possibly even getting him on our roster," Francona said. "I don't think we think he's quite ready, and I think he agrees with that. He's tender a little bit in his abdominal region, not where he got hurt, just kind of tender. He's done a lot of work and I think we just want to make sure when we bring him off he's ready. We're not quite there yet."

 

As for the Red Sox other...
