A 16-15 loss to Boston last night in a Major League Lacrosse Eastern Conference showdown left the previously unbeaten Barrage in a first-place tie with the Cannons. Conor Gill did most of the damage for Boston (5-1), scoring two goals and adding four assists in front of 6,190 at Nickerson Field. David Evans netted four goals and had an assist. For the Barrage (5-1), 11 goals were scored by midfielders. Justin Smith led the team by scoring four times and assisting once. Matt Striebel had three goals and an assist.

DENVER - They ran onto the field like kids fleeing school at the start of summer vacation. They whooped and hollered and laughed and jumped up and down and doused each other with champagne and beer. The Boston Red Sox, in other words, did all the things that baseball teams do after winning the World Series. And they did more than just stake their claim to another championship last night by completing an impressive sweep of the Colorado Rockies with a 4-3 win last night at Coors Field.

The Boston Red Sox yesterday named former catcher Carlton Fisk a special assistant to general manager Dan Duquette, bringing the New England native back to where he started his career. Fisk, 52, won the 1972 American League Rookie of the Year Award and played the first nine seasons of his 21-year major-league career with Boston. The native of Bellows Falls, Vt., probably will make public appearances for the team and work with minor-league catchers, the team said. Fisk, who in January fell 43 votes shy of the 373 needed for induction into the Hall of Fame, hit one of the game's most famous home runs.

Boston won the annual intercity team golf series for the Griscom Cup with a score of 29 points yesterday at Salem (Mass.) Country Club. New York finished second with 19 1/2 points, and Philadelphia, the defending champion, was third with 14 1/2. Each side was represented by seven singles players in match-play competition. PGA PRO-AM Frank Dobbs of Spring-Ford Country Club scored his first local victory of the season in taking individual pro honors with a 1-under-par 69 in the $5,000 Pro-Amateur golf tournament of the Philadelphia PGA at Philadelphia Cricket Club.

There was a time when Sixers-Celtics, national television and stretch drive could combine, along with the appropriate adjectives and prepositions, to provide the promise of memorable basketball. The old elements will come together again today, but the expectations have been sorely diminished. The promise has not been dimmed by the Celtics, who have injected new life into fading glory and run away with first place in the Atlantic Division. The Sixers are the laggards now. They lost point guard Johnny Dawkins early in the season, traded away their only legitimate center to bolster a sagging offense, and have bumped uneasily through the regular season.

NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue yesterday endorsed a plan to build a domed stadium in Boston for the New England Patriots. Tagliabue met with Mayor Raymond Flynn, who pitched the concept of a stadium that could seat 70,000 people and host 100 athletic and cultural events a year. "It was a very positive meeting," Tagliabue said. "We think the concept of a domed stadium in Boston is a super idea. " Flynn, who is facing a preliminary re-election vote on Tuesday, has not said where the stadium would be built.

In terms of rock history, last night was an eagerly awaited occasion, when Boston, performing in Philadelphia for the first time in nine years, opened a three-night stand at the Spectrum. Musically, it was pretty ho-hum, as Boston ran through a medley of early hits before playing Third Stage, their latest album, in its entirety. Tom Scholz, the creative force in the band, writes airy little pop songs with formal choruses. Onto these flimsy structures, Scholz grafts imposing guitar textures.

Maren Meinert and Jen Tietjen, separated by a few inches, sprinted downfield during the 70th minute of last night's game, fighting for position just a few feet from Charge keeper Melissa Moore. A few seconds later, Tietjen, Philadelphia's star defender, cleared the ball, thwarting a Boston scoring effort. That sequence occurred often last night, leaving the game scoreless until the last 10 minutes. Then two substitutes added some excitement. In the 84th minute, Boston keeper Tracy Ducar's kick landed near Liu Ailing of the Charge.

Certain people enjoy certain situations better than others. In baseball, some players thrive in East Coast cities such as Boston, New York and Philadelphia - places where the expectations are high and the fans are tough. They love the attention. They thrive under the pressure. Others simply could do without it. Florida Marlins pitcher Chad Fox knows this too well. He signed with Boston in the off-season and lasted half a season before the Red Sox released him July 31. He went 1-2 with a 4.50 earned run average in Boston before he signed a minor-league contract with the Marlins on Aug. 8. After his call-up Aug. 12, he went 2-1 with a 2.13 ERA in 21 appearances.

It can drive you nuts, working two months on location on a big TV project, killing time until a call to do the next scene. Especially if you're only 20 years old. "There were many weeks just waiting," says Erika Alexander, one of the very impressive young stars of the CBS mini-series Common Ground, based on J. Anthony Lukas' Pulitzer-Prize-winning book about Boston school desegregation in the mid-'70s. The show airs next Sunday and March 27 at 9 p.m. on Channel 10. Were there really weeks of waiting?

BOSTON - Johanna Hantel got up Wednesday morning and went for a half-hour run around Boston Commons. It seemed appropriate. The Malvern woman was in Boston to speak for the runners. Hantel was 10 feet from the first bomb, closer than almost any other runner, when it exploded April 15, 2013, killing three and injuring 254. A police officer later died in a shootout with the bombers. One of the proudest days of Hantel's life was the first time she qualified for Boston. Wednesday was even prouder.

A PRETTY good indication that Ruben Amaro Jr. has made the right move in holding on to Cole Hamels is the number of general managers and personnel executives anonymously bellyaching about him in the national press. Amaro starring in "Little Big League 2" is an easy narrative to peddle, and his colleagues seem happy to play it up, but his culpability for the Phillies' current mess does not mean every decision he makes is a terrible one, and the decision to hang on to Hamels has proved to be the smart play.

Kim Lewullis and Nikki Watts have a lot of things in common. They live on the same block in the same style house in Collegeville. They both teach at the YMCA. They both have three children. This makes sense because they were born minutes apart. They're twins. They do one more thing together, too: They run. On Monday, they'll run their second Boston Marathon. "We try to do all of our long runs together," said Lewullis, 40, who is older by two minutes. "Knowing that we're in this together provides strength and just peace of mind.

NO OFFENSE, but you cannot get away with this every night, rewriting the same story 150 or so times over the course of a 6-month season. No offense, but the good people who put a dollar's worth of quarters into the machine, or subscribe daily, or log on to the website, deserve better. No offense, but, yeah, that's just it. No offense. Righthander David Buchanan could barely get out of his own way in a disastrous third inning that came to an end only shortly after he did just that, getting out of the way of a rocket comeback line drive off the bat of opposing pitcher Justin Masterson, the ninth batter of the frame.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Cole Hamels will almost certainly take the mound in a Phillies uniform on Opening Day, 2 weeks from yesterday, at Citizens Bank Park against the Boston Red Sox. Spring training trades - particularly spring training blockbuster trades - are extremely rare. After holding firm this winter, the Phillies are probably best suited to wait until early in the summer, when at least a handful of teams will have interest in acquiring a pitcher of Hamels' ability before the trade deadline.

BOSTON - Nerlens Noel has had lackluster homecomings. The 76ers rookie center hopes to change that Monday against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden. Noel's hometown of Everett, Mass., is less than four miles from the arena. Yet, his family and friends have witnessed some of the emerging rookie-of-the-year candidate's worst outings. Perhaps overly anxious to play in Boston, Noel rushed shots and was too revved up for his own good. He made 2 of 9 shots to finish with four points, six rebounds, four turnovers and a technical foul before fouling out in 27 minutes in a preseason opener won by Boston on Oct. 6. He later scored eight points on 1-for-5 shooting to go with seven rebounds and four turnovers in 27 minutes of a 107-96 regular-season loss on Feb. 6. Ineffective, the 6-foot-11, 221-pounder was taken out with 5 minutes, 50 seconds remaining and the Sixers (15-51)

For the last week, Flyers coach Craig Berube has talked about his team's singular focus, saying no one would look past an opponent - even with a key game coming up in Boston. Now that game in Boston is upon the Flyers, Saturday's 1 p.m. meeting at TD Garden that should have a playoff feel. The Flyers trail Boston by four points for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff berth, but they have played two more games than the Bruins. "It's a little extra [excitement] because you are chasing them, obviously," Berube said after the Flyers' brief practice Friday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees.

On Jan. 13, 1968, in what was a more telling indictment of my social life than my taste in sports, I was sitting in the basement TV room of a college dormitory in Wisconsin watching a Saturday night hockey game between the Minnesota North Stars and Oakland Seals. It wasn't by choice. I was 18. It was Saturday night. And if I had to spend it in front of a TV, I'd have preferred the Jackie Gleason Show , Get Smart , or The Dating Game . But I was a freshman, and this was Wisconsin.

NEW YORK - It had been a long time, more than three months to be exact, since Christian Hackenberg looked like the confident quarterback who had excited Penn State fans during his 2013 freshman year, who was on everyone's top-10-in-the-nation list at the start of the season. On Saturday at Yankee Stadium, Hackenberg showed a captivated sellout Pinstripe Bowl crowd of 49,012 that he could still be that guy, leading the Nittany Lions back from a two-touchdown deficit against Boston College and carrying the game into overtime.
