Boston Celtics forward Leon Powe had surgery on his torn ACL and meniscus on Tuesday at the New England Baptist Hospital.
Powe injured his left knee in the second quarter of Game 2 in Boston’s first round series with the Chicago Bulls.
Danny Ainge and Powe are hopeful that the former University of California star can be ready to play by the midway point of the 2009-2010 season.
Red Sox Enjoy First Visit To New Yankee Stadium
Jason Bay and the Boston Red Sox completed a sweep of the New York Yankees on Tuesday night beating New York 7-3 in their first trip to the new Yankee Stadium.
Bay’s three-run blast in the first inning helped set the tone for Josh Beckett (3-2) and the Sox (17-10) to improve their season record against their rivals to 5-0.
Beckett allowed three runs and 10 hits over six-plus innings of work. Beckett’s only costly mistake in the outing was a Johnny Damon three-run homerun in the third. Boston held a 4-3 lead going into the eighth inning when a Jason Varitek sacrifice fly and a Nate Green single helped Boston stake a 6-3 lead.
Jeff Bailey added one more run for the Sox in the ninth with a bases loaded walk.
Hideki Okajimia pitched two innings of hitless and scoreless relief and Takashi Saito shut the door on the Yankees with a scoreless ninth.
Terry Francona and the Red Sox go-ahead with their treacherous streak of games without a day off as they host the Cleveland Indians at Fenway Park on Wednesday night.
NESN announced Wednesday that Red Sox color commentator Jerry Remy is taking an indefinite leave of absence to fully recover from the effects of cancer surgery.
“I want to focus on completing my recovery so that I can return to work without distractions or interruptions,” said Remy, a former smoker who underwent surgery for lung cancer late last year.-Full Story
