Pedroia, Gonzalez, Ellsbury win Gold Gloves

Three Red Sox claimed American League Gold Gloves Tuesday night, with second baseman Dustin Pedroia winning his second, first baseman Adrian Gonzalez taking his third, and center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury earning his first.

Playing in a career-high 159 games, Pedroia had the second-highest fielding percentage in the AL (.990), only trailing the Angels' Howie Kendrick (.992). The Sox infielder committed seven errors while notching the third-most chances in the league (772). The Yankees' Robinson Cano won the award last season.

In his first season in the American League, Gonzalez finished second behind Casey Kotchman in fielding percentage (.997), making just four errors while owning the top zone rating among AL first basemen (.893).

Ellsbury was able to win his first Gold Glove thanks to a season in which he didn't make an error in 394 total chances. He also managed six outfield assists.

It marked the first time since 1979 the Red Sox...

Julien: 'Our team was there' in win

For one of the first times all season, Bruins coach Claude Julien felt his team gave the kind of effort he was looking for in a 5-3 win over the Senators at TD Garden Tuesday night. Julien watched as his team fell behind 2-1 on two fluky first-period goals and lost a 3-2 lead early in the third period on a shot through a heavy screen in front of Tim Thomas. 

"I just felt our team was there tonight," Julien said after 13 Bruins recorded points. "Our compete level was better, and our focus seemed to be there. When you look at the way [Ottawa] scored that first goal, it was a little bit snakebitten. But tonight, we looked like a group that wasn't going to let those kind of things beat us."

The Bruins, who were just 3-7-0 entering Tuesday's contest, won the game when Johnny Boychuk beat Craig Anderson with a slap shot from the right point at 6:41 of the third. Daniel Paille followed up with a breakaway goal that sealed Boston's...

Rocket rescue: Boychuk, B's snap funk

Johnny Boychuk and Daniel Paille scored 37 seconds apart in the third period to snap a 3-3 tie, leading Boston to a much-needed 5-3 win over the Senators Tuesday night at TD Garden. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Bruins, who had dipped to dead last among the 15 teams in the Eastern Conference entering the contest. The Senators, conversely, saw their six-game winning streak come to an end.

The home crowd began getting extremely restless after a bumbling first period that had the Bruins misfiring on passes and giving up bizarre goals. After the Senators took a 1-0 lead, Milan Lucic tied the game at 7:12 of the first on the power play. But the good feelings didn't last long as Nick Foligno fired a pass off the backside of Joe Corvo. The rebound landed on the stick of Stephane Da Costa, who flipped it past Tim Thomas just 16 seconds after Lucic got the crowd into the game with his goal. 

But the Bruins -- with 13 players...

Agent: Edelman will fight charges 'vigorously'

Don Yee, the agent for Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, said that his client will fight charges of indecent assault and battery. Edelman was released on personal recognizance after entering a not guilty plea to the charges in a Boston nightclub.

Yee, in a statement on behalf of Edelman, said that the charges "will be fought vigorously within the court system, instead of a rush to judgment elsewhere." For more on the situation, click here.

Edelman has three catches for 25 yards in four games this year. For a closer look at his on-field impact (or lack thereof) this year, check out the It Is What It Is blog. For complete Patriots coverage, visit weei.com/patriots.

Olney on M&M: Mackanin 'perfect' for Sox

Buster Olney of ESPN was a guest of the Mut & Merloni show on Tuesday. Olney was first asked about Pete Mackanin, who interviewed for the Red Sox managerial opening Monday. Olney, who covered Mackanin in the minor leagues, said the Phillies bench coach would be a solid successor to Terry Francona.

"It would be a perfect choice," Olney said. "He's smarter than a whip, he's tremendous in terms of being someone who is adaptable. I'm sure you read the stories today that he has a keen interest in some of the baseball statistics and statistical analysis, which is going to be something that if you are a general manager now you are going to want to hear. The big thing is how he deals with players. … If some guy messes up on the field, he'll deal with it. If something is out of line, he'll deal with it. Guys play hard for him."

The issue of compensation for Theo Epstein continues to linger, with Tuesday as the deadline...
