Happy Tuesday to everyone, and also, Happy May, too! Let’s jumpstart the month with some headlines and news from the city of champions… Boston!
* David Ortiz concluded the month of April with two home runs and two RBIs, as Boston defeated Oakland at Fenway Park on Monday, 11-6. Clay Buchholz earned his third victory of the season on the bump – he pitched 6.2 innings, allowed seven hits and six earned runs, but fanned five batters.
* The Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics will play Game No. 2 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinals series on Tuesday — Rajon Rondo won’t be in the lineup due to earning a one-game suspension for bumping a referee on Sunday.
* Doc Rivers told the media on Monday that he’s not planning on rushing back Ray Allen, who is currently battling a right ankle injury. Sources confirmed that Allen will most likely need surgery once the Celtics season concludes.
