BC's Jackson to stay in NBA draft

Boston College junior guard Reggie Jackson announced Saturday that he would remain in the NBA draft, forfeiting his final year of college eligibility. Non-seniors who have not hired an agent can pull out of the draft before Sunday.

"I just want to thank BC, the coaching staff and administration for all their help and support throughout my three years here, but I have decided to stay in the draft and forego my senior season," he said in a statement. "The NBA has always been a dream of mine and it is one I wish to pursue. I am truly blessed to have attended and played for such a prestigious university. I would like to say thank you to all the BC fans for all the support and, though I have decided to leave school early, I will always be a BC Eagle."

Jackson averaged 18.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists in his final season at BC. In his college career, he scored 1,254 points in 99 games.

Shaquille O'Neal is active for Game 3

After all the false starts, Shaquille O'Neal is finally active for the Celtics for Game 3 of their playoff series with the Heat. Celtics coach Doc Rivers said that Jermaine O'Neal will remain in the starting lineup and that he honestly had no idea what to expect in terms of minutes. "With him it will just be the eye test and whatever you think he can handle you’ll give him," Rivers said. "As long as he’s playing well." 

Carlos Arroyo will be inactive along with Avery Bradley and Sasha Pavlovic.

Buchholz outlasts rain, beats Twins

As the rain delay lengthened, it became nearly impossible to imagine that Clay Buchholz would return to the mound. The skies had forced the right-hander off the field at 1:53 p.m., when he was warming up for the third, and did not permit play to begin until 4 p.m.

Yet when the game resumed, there was Buchholz again. He re-entered a game in which the Sox had a 1-0 lead and proved relentless in attacking the strike zone to preserve it. Buchholz logged three more shutout innings, finishing the day with six punchouts in five shutout innings in which he allowed just two hits and one walk. He was followed by a bullpen that delivered four shutout innings.

That, in turn, set up the Sox for a 4-0 win, on a day when they got RBI singles from Jed Lowrie (first inning) and Kevin Youkilis (third) and a two-run hit from Jacoby Ellsbury, who extended his hitting streak to 16 games.

The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Sox. For details...

Buchholz returns to mound after delay

After a rain delay of 2 hours, 7 minutes, Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz returned to the mound for the top of the third inning of the Red Sox' contest against the Twins, armed with a 1-0 lead. Buchholz struck out the first batter he faced, Luke Hughes, on three pitches.

The delay began at 1:53 p.m., with the game resuming at 4:00 p.m. The Sox claimed a first inning advantage when Jed Lowrie delivered a two-out RBI single in the bottom of the first.

While Buchholz returned to the game for the Sox, the Twins elected to pull their starter, Brian Duensing. Kevin Slowey will take the hill in the third for Minnesota.

Francona: Pedroia staying put in order

Red Sox manager Terry Francona has had a good deal of success moving players around in his batting order until they find they comfort zone and get hot. Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford are clear examples of that this season but Francona said before Saturday's contest against Minnesota that he has no such plans for Dustin Pedroia. The Red Sox second baseman has just six hits in 53 at-bats in his last 13 games as his average has dropped to .235 on the season. 

"Nah, I'd like to leave him where he is. I've been around him long enough to know that he will get every bit as hot as he got cold," Francona said of Pedroia in the No. 2 spot in the order. "I know my job is to remain positive but this is an easy one. I thought with Carl being new, I thought he was feeling it a little bit. I understand that, it's human nature. I thought it would help him. And Carl's going to really get going."

Pedroia, who got the day off on Thursday,...
