Mashup: Donald Trump out at Indy 500

Businessman and presidential candidate Donald Trump was supposed to ride the pace car for this month's Indianapolis 500, but he announced Thursday that he was stepping aside due to "time and business constraints."

Havlicek to Big Baby: Remember 1969

WALTHAM -- Glen Davis said he was inspired Thursday at practice by John "Hondo" Havlicek, who reminded Davis of another Celtics team that was in a 2-0 playoff hole, only to overcome all the odds and win the NBA title. 

“The frustration, things not working out, you can get all messed up," said Davis. "But I was talking to Havlicek today, you know, ‘Havlicek Stole the Ball’ and I said which one of these [championship] banners were you 0-2, and he said the one that stood out to him was 1969. When they were down 0-2, they came back to win it in Game 7 against the Lakers."

Davis - who was born on New Year's Day 1986 - said Havlicek kept reminding him of the will of that '69 Celtics team. 

“He was just saying, ‘It’s going to take everything in you to fight and claw back and get back to get to 2-2 even but then it’s going to take something special to finish them off,'...

Lackey: 'I just didn't pitch very well'

Speaking after the Red Sox' 11-0 loss to the Angels Thursday afternoon at Fenway Park, Sox starting pitcher John Lackey lamented the fact he simply didn't execute well in giving up eight runs on 10 hits over four innings against his former team.

"I didn't locate as well," Lackey said when comparing the outing to his previous meetings with the Angels, which had resulted in four wins in as many starts. "I probably fell into a few patterns. They might have been sitting on a few things."

When asked if the Angels, who had scored just eight earned runs in 29 1/3 innings against Lackey coming into the series finale, adjusted their approach this time around, the righty responded: "If I pitch the way I can pitch, it doesn't matter how they approach me. I just didn't pitch very well."

Lackey also talked about the importance of giving the Sox a quality start with the team coming off a loss that wasn't completed until 2:45...

Wakefield to start Friday, Daisuke Sunday

Red Sox manager Terry Francona announced after his team's 11-0 loss to the Angels Thursday afternoon that Tim Wakefield will get the start against the Twins Friday after the regularly scheduled starter, Daisuke Matsuzaka, was forced to throw a 20-pitch inning in relief Wednesday night.

Wakefield also appeared in Wednesday night's Red Sox loss, throwing 12 pitches in 2/3 innings after having made his first start of the season May 1 against Seattle. In the outing vs. the Mariners, the knuckleballer lasted 5 2/3 innings, giving up just one run on three hits.

Clay Buchholz will pitch Saturday, leading into Matsuzaka's first start since he experienced elbow soreness on April 29. 

"Just want to try and put a day in between for Dice for obvious reasons, because he pitched last night," Francona said. 

In other post-game news, the results from the MRI taken on Bobby Jenks right arm were encouraging, according to Francona,...
