    导出博客文章NEW YORK -- The next time David Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox conduct postgame
    interviews, they hope their comments take place in a raucous clubhouse during a
    boisterous celebration for clinching the American League East.The Red Sox did
    not clinch Tuesday as Ortiz was 0-for-5 with two strikeouts and stranded seven
    runners during a 6-4 loss.Their next opportunity will be Wednesday in Ortizs
    penultimate game against the Yankees.The Red Sox won 11 of their last 12 to be
    in position for their eighth division title. They need a win, or a loss by
    Toronto to Baltimore, but neither happened in the series opener.Ortizs comments
    were also as quiet as his bat. He did not field any questions and before exiting
    the clubhouse said: That aint fun. They got me out, just put it down like that.
    They tricked me tonight. Too much talking between the pitcher and catcher. Ill
    trick them tomorrow.If Ortiz can trick the Yankees by getting more big hits in a
    win, the Red Sox will be division champions, doing so after starting their
    11-game streak with four straight victories over the Yankees at Fenway Park.I
    mean its what he always does, Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts said. He comes
    through in those situations. Nobodys perfect so hell be ready to go
    tomorrow.Beside Ortizs inability to add to his 124 RBI, David Price allowed
    three home runs among 12 hits in 6 1/3 innings.The Red Sox hope Clay Buchholz
    can continue his recent resurgence and further improve his chances of being on
    the postseason roster. The Red Sox can use an effective Buchholz since Drew
    Pomeranz (forearm soreness) was scratched from his Thursday start and Steven
    Wright remains out with shoulder bursitis.On the surface, Buchholzs numbers of
    8-10 with a 5.00 ERA in in 36 appearances (20 starts), are not appealing but
    playoff roster construction often is a what have you done for me lately
    business.And for Buchholz, the answer is this: 4-0 with a 3.09 ERA in his last
    six starts. Those wins are not necessarily a situation where he has been blessed
    with tremendous run support.I knew it wasnt going to be bad all year, Buchholz
    told reporters in Baltimore last week. There were a stretch that I didnt really
    know what was going on and I didnt know how to fix it. And when I tried to fix
    it, I was trying too hard and overdoing a lot of things, overanalyzing.His run
    of effective starts began Aug. 16 and 23 in a 4-3 loss and a 2-1 victory against
    Detroit and Tampa Bay, respectively. Three relief appearances followed and then
    came four more starts this month against San Diego, Toronto, New York and
    Baltimore.Only the start against the Blue Jays can be considered ineffective as
    Buchholz allowed six runs and four hits in three innings of Bostons 11-8
    victory. In the other three starts, he allowed four earned runs and 18 hits in
    19 2/3 innings.Buchholz is 6-9 with a 5.99 ERA in 19 appearances (18 starts)
    against the Yankees. On Sept. 16, he allowed two runs and seven hits in six
    innings at Fenway Park.The Yankees have won five of their last 15 games
    following a seven-game winning streak and are barely mathematically alive. They
    are four games behind Baltimore with five to play, but also are behind Houston,
    Seattle and Detroit.Gary Sanchez hit his 20th home run and Tyler Austin had the
    tiebreaking home run in the seventh Tuesday, and at this point the storylines
    for the Yankees are not about postseason plans but development.There are some
    good things that have happened but no because were about winning championships
    and whenever you fall short, theres a ton of disappointment, manager Joe Girardi
    said when asked if this season has been successful. Its very difficult. You look
    and examine everything thats went on with the player and what you need to do to
    get to that level. So I think there are successful stories but as an overall
    success, no.Bryan Mitchell makes his fifth start of the season and eighth of his
    career Wednesday for the Yankees. He pitched in Fridays 9-0 loss at Toronto but
    allowed three runs (one earned) and six hits in a career-high six innings.

    . He just needed to be his best twisting, turning
    acrobatic self. "I didnt need to be anybody else, I just needed to be myself and
    be aggressive," said Burks, who scored a career-high 34 points to spark the Utah
    Jazz to a 118-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night.

    Philadelphia is 2-0 against the Senators this season and scored five goals in
    each victory. The Flyers recorded a 5-0 win in Ottawa on Nov. 12 and then earned

    of the last five encounters with the Sens overall and Philly has won two in a
    row and three of its past four tests in Canadas capital city. MIAMI -- Mario
    Chalmers phone has been ringing for the last few weeks, the calls coming from
    teams curious about how his recovery is progressing.Hes about to have a concrete
    answer.Chalmers is on target to be cleared for full basketball activity this
    week, eight months after rupturing his right Achilles tendon. He thinks he could
    be on an NBA floor again by early December.Right now, I can pretty much do
    everything, Chalmers said. Ive been on the court the last two, three months just
    working on getting back. Im back to sprinting, running and jumping.Hes always
    been supremely confident in his game. That hasnt changed.Never will, either,
    Chalmers said.The 30-year-old was a starter on Miamis title teams in 2012 and
    2013 -- among active players, only Tony Parker has also been a starting point
    guard on multiple championship squads. Miami went to the NBA Finals in four
    straight seasons when Chalmers was with Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris
    Bosh, but the 2014 title series still causes Chalmers some angst.My last
    performance in the Finals, thats the one thing I do want to change if I ever get
    the opportunity again, Chalmers said. Thats the one thing that really sticks out
    in my mind.So hell look to sign with a title contender.Chalmers knows itll be a
    prove-yourself deal for the rest of this season, and that hell almost certainly
    be asked to serve in a backup role. Hes fine with that, saying a chance is all
    he needs right now.Ive been to four Finals, Chalmers said. Theres a lot I can
    share. And whatever nervousness I have coming back, its all going to be gone as
    soon as that first shot goes in.---HARDENS STREAKJames Harden is having a
    November to remember.In six games so far this month, the Houston guard is
    averaging 30.3 points, 14.2 assists and 8.5 rebounds. Hes got triple-doubles in
    his last two games, something only Elvin Hayes has done in Rockets history. And
    according to the Elias Sports Bureau, Harden is the first NBA player with at
    least 24 points and 12 assists in six sstraight games.ddddddddddddouston plays
    Philadelphia on Monday. Last season in two games against the 76ers, Harden
    averaged 39.5 points, nine rebounds and eight assists.---VIDEO OFFNBA teams have
    the option this season of reviewing video in real-time on their benches during
    games.It doesnt seem to be widely utilized yet.San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich
    says he has no interest, and Sacramento coach Dave Joerger is among the many
    still wondering what the best way is to add real-time access to their in-game
    routines. Teams have been able to use video on the bench for the past few
    seasons, provided it was uploaded first. This real-time option, the NBA said,
    was in the interest of streamlining.I havent wanted to do it just to do it, Utah
    coach Quin Snyder said. I want it to be productive.The Jazz load their players
    up with tons of film around games. If a player wants more, Snyder will
    accommodate.If one guy wants to do it, Id be ready to do it tomorrow, Snyder
    said.---THE WEEK AHEADSome games to note this week:Orlando at Indiana, Monday:
    Magic coach Frank Vogel gets to reunite with his former club, one that has
    sputtered early.Toronto at Cleveland, Tuesday: The Cavs held DeMar DeRozan to 32
    points on Oct. 28, his second-lowest output this season.Houston at Oklahoma
    City, Wednesday: James Harden vs. Russell Westbrook. You dont need any more
    reason to watch.San Antonio at L.A. Lakers, Friday: The Lakers have wins over
    the Hawks, Warriors and Rockets. Heres another proving ground.Golden State at
    Milwaukee, Saturday: The Warriors went to Milwaukee 24-0 last season, and left
    24-1. Guessing they remember.---STAT OF THE WEEKStephen Curry, Golden State:
    During his NBA-record spree of 3-pointers last Monday, he missed as many shots
    from inside the paint (four) as he did from beyond the arc. Curry finished with
    46 points, shooting 13 of 17 from beyond the arc. ' ' '
