    BOSTON — The Boston Celtics’ catastrophic performance in Game 4 of the NBA Finals gave them a chance to clinch another championship on Monday night under the 17 banners already hanging in the TD Garden rafters.
    And, coach Joe Mazzulla reminded them, that they would still have two more chances after that.

    EDMONTON, Alberta — There was lots of chatter at the Florida Panthers’ breakfast the morning after the Edmonton Oilers blew them out 8-1 in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final to send the series back across North America.
    As lopsided as that loss was in their first chance to close out the series, the Panthers return home to South Florida up 3-1 in the final with another opportunity to win the first championship in franchise history in front o

    Before the Dodgers could welcome starting pitcher Bobby Miller back from the Injured List, they lost right-hander Yoshinobu Yamamoto. Yamamoto was placed on the IL Sunday following his early departure from his start Saturday with triceps soreness.
    An examination (including an MRI) Sunday resulted in a diagnosis of a strained rotator cuff. Yamamoto will be out indefinitely.

    SAN FRANCISCO — When the Angels sent struggling Reid Detmers to Triple-A, they simply shifted from one problem to another in the rotation.

    Mookie Betts stayed down for some time after being hit by the pitch in the seventh inning before walking slowly off the field. The injury added an unsettling taste to a 3-0 victory over the Kansas City Royals Sunday afternoon.
