In the NBA, the search in Boston to replace Doc Rivers is over. The Celtics hired Butler's Brad Stevens as head coach. Stevens has spent the last six years as the head coach of Butler, twice leading the Bulldogs to the NCAA championship game.
Moving over to baseball news, pinch-hitter Jonny Gomes led off the bottom of the ninth with a homer to end Boston's 2-1 win over San Diego. Mike Carp had two hits and scored a run for Boston, which is 7-1 on its nine-game homestand.
