It’s Tuesday, which means this particular week is motoring along. And while we anxiously await for another weekend, let’s get the day started with some headlines and news from Boston.

* The Boston Red Sox needed a ninth inning rally to pick up their first win of the 2012 season, as they defeated the Toronto Blue Jays, 4-2. Darnell McDonald and Cody Ross scored the team’s third and fourth runs, while Alfredo Aceves picked up his first save after a 1-2-3 ninth inning.

* Boston will attempt to double their win total on Tuesday when Daniel Bard opposes Kyle Drabek at 7:07pm in Toronto.

* According to reports – Boston’s Kevin Youkilis is frustrated about his 12 plate appearances this season. The third baseman is currently 0-for-12 at the dish, and leads the team with five strikeouts, (Adrian Gonzalez also has five strikeouts, too).

* The Boston Celtics will look to earn a critical victory on Tuesday when they travel to Miami to face the Heat. The Green and White have 10 games remaining before the playoffs, and will certainly have their hands full during this final stretch.

* ESPNBoston confirmed on Monday that the Celtics were tabbed as the No. 6 team in basketball according to the recent ESPN rankings. Last week, the Celtics were slated at the No. 7 team, but recent victories bumped them up to their newest spot.

* Lastly, we’re two days away from the Boston Bruins first playoff contest against the Washington Capitals, which is scheduled for Thursday, Apr. 12 at 7:30pm.
