Hannah Foslien/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) -- The Boston Red Sox placed outfielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring Saturday.

The Red Sox recalled pitcher Matt Barnes from Triple-A Pawtucket to take Victorino's place.

This is the third time in two seasons Victorino has been placed on the DL due to his right hamstring. Despite that, Red Sox skipper John Farrell says the move had almost as much to do with the team as it did Victorino.

"I wouldn't say he stalled, he's actually improving," Farrell said when talking about Victorino. "He worked out today early this morning, ran in the pool. But we felt like with the number of innings our bullpen is pitching, that is the overriding thing at this point.''

With Victorino out, the Red Sox can use Brock Holt, Allen Craig or Daniel Nava in right field.

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(MILWAUKEE) -- With 1.3 seconds left, Jerryd Bayless burned Derrick Rose, caught the inbounds pass, and scored as the buzzer sounded to lift the Milwaukee Bucks over the Chicago Bulls 92-90 Saturday, in Game 4 of their first round playoff series.

The win means the Bucks avoid elimination and force a Game 5 Monday in Chicago.

O.J. Mayo scored 18 points to help the Bucks win their first playoff game in five years.

The Bucks used an aggressive defense that forced the Bulls into 26 turnovers, eight by Rose, in the victory.

Jimmy Butler, who played his college ball in Milwaukee at Marquette, had 33 points and seven rebounds in the loss.

All nine Bucks that played Saturday scored at least six points.

Dallas Mavericks/NBA(NEW YORK) -- Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle was fined $25,000 by the NBA Saturday for his criticizing of officials after his team's Game 3 playoff loss to the Houston Rockets Friday.

"I have strong feelings about how I feel about my team, and I'm going to fight for my team," Carlisle said Saturday. "That's just the way it's going to be. I'm a lot like my owner. I'm going to fight for my guys. I understand the fine. I accept it, and I think they'll put the money to very good use."

At his Game 3 postgame press conference Carlisle complained about some of the physical play on the court. He then talked specifically talked about a play that occurred at the beginning of the fourth quarter that involved Rockets center Dwight Howard.

"We're scrambling like hell defensively and Devin Harris is going to get the ball, and Dwight Howard throws him into our bench," Carlisle said. "He takes the ball, skips it over the top and (Trevor) Ariza gets a wide-open 3. So instead of us getting the ball and a foul on Howard, it turns into essentially a five- six-point swing.

"That stuff's got to stop. The officials got to get that stuff under control, because there's too much physical stuff going on. Howard is throwing people all over the place, and that can't happen in Game 4."

The Rockets lead the best-of-seven series 3-0. Game 4 is Sunday night in Dallas.

Bruce Bennett/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After losing six times to the Atlanta Hawks this season the Brooklyn Nets finally won a game.

Brook Lopez had 23 points and 13 boards to lead the Nets to a 91-83 victory over the Hawks Saturday, in Game 3 of their first round playoff series.

Brooklyn, which lost all four games it played against Atlanta in the regular season, trailed by four with 2:39 remaining in third quarter before going on an 18-0 run. The Nets never trailed from there as they win to cut the best-of-seven series deficit to 2-1.

"I think they're a confident group, just like we are. It's the playoffs," Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer said. "I think they've played well really for stretches from the beginning and it's going to be a series."

After scoring only two points in Game 2, Thaddeus Young bounced back with 18 points and 11 boards in the win.

"No matter what or how I felt about Game 2, I knew I had to come back and bounce back in Game 3 for us to get a win," Young said.

DeMarre Carroll scored a playoff career-high 22 points in the loss.

The eighth-seeded Nets will try to even the series in Brooklyn on Monday.

Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images(OAKLAND) -- The Oakland Athletics have placed Ben Zobrist on the 15-day disabled list as he will undergo surgery to repair torn cartilage in his knee.

"I'm disappointed. I just didn't feel like I could be the player that this team needs me to be in the condition I was trying to play in," Zobrist said. "So I got to get it cleaned up and get back out here as soon as possible."

Zobrist hurt his knee sliding into second base when Oakland was playing Kansas City on Sunday. He rested for a few days but could not play through the pain when the team utilized him as a designated hitter Thursday against the Angels.

"I just wasn't getting out of the box well at all, and frankly, the worst thing out of it was just trying to swing," he said. "When I swung right-handed specifically it put a lot of pressure on that front knee, the left knee. I just didn't feel like I was in the kind of condition I need to be to help the club."

Zobrist has one home run, eight RBI and is batting .240 through 56 plate appearances this season.

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) -- Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay won't put any pressure on head coach Chuck Pagano, who is entering the final year of his contract.

Irsay said that Pagano's future doesn't depend on winning a Super Bowl title next season.

"These things are ongoing a lot of times behind the scenes," Irsay told The Indianapolis Star.  "We're working on contracts, whether it's management, coaches, players. We had discussions and it doesn't mean that they won't continue. It's not a Super Bowl-or-bust season or anything like that."

The Colts were smacked around by the Patriots in the AFC Championship game in January and fell short of quarterback Andrew Luck making his first Super Bowl appearance.

"We were proud of our (2014) season and I really feel positive about Chuck and what he's done for us," Irsay told the paper. "There's no question that he's accomplished a lot since he's been here."

Indianapolis has the 29th pick of Thursday's NFL Draft after finishing 11-5 last year.

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(ALAMEDA, Calif.) -- The Oakland Raiders are hopeful headed into Thursday's NFL Draft.

New head coach Jack Del Rio and general manager Reggie McKenzie wouldn't give away who they are targeting on Thursday, but said they're doing everything they can to improve the roster.

"We always hope that you get some productive players," McKenzie said. "We were excited and happy that they were productive. We’re just trying to get it right. We want to get the player that we feel can best help our team and that’s what we’re going to do. Whether there’s pressure or not, I want to hit on my seventh-round pick, too."

Del Rio comes over from the Broncos after spending the last three seasons as the defensive coordinator.

"The measurables are one piece, the college film is one piece. Live exposure, watching them interact with their teammates, is one piece. Background checks are another piece," said Del Rio, who was the 68th pick in the third round of the 1985 draft. "There’s so many different factors. Their health is obviously a big piece. That’s one of the main reasons you have the combine, to collect the medical data on some of these prospects. Play history is obviously a big part of it, what guys have done. Productive guys tend to remain productive guys."

The Raiders have failed to make the playoffs since their Super Bowl appearance in the 2002 season and have the fourth pick in the draft.

(NEW YORK) -- As the Stanley Cup Playoffs roll on in the NHL the intensity of both the player and the fans has been ratcheted up.

 NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman was asked if he found any issue with Anaheim Ducks winger Corey Perry having chants of "Katy Perry" directed at him by the fans.

 “You’re suggesting that the crowd saying ‘Katy Perry’ to Corey Perry was sexist? Or misogynist?” he asked. “I don’t think taunting chants at players on the other side of the ice is intended to be sexist in the slightest. It’s like when you call a goaltender a sieve, they chant that. Is that now inappropriate also?”

 The Anaheim Ducks swept the Winnipeg Jets in the first round of the playoffs. Perry had seven points in the series, scoring three goals and adding four assists.

NBATV/ABC News(DALLAS) -- NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is open to changing the rules about the Hack-a-Shaq strategy that was used this season and in the playoffs primarily on Clippers forward DeAndre Jordan.

Silver spoke with ESPN.com about possibly making new rules to avoid team's going that rout throughout a game and could start discussing a solution this summer.

"It's something that I'm on the fence about," Silver told ESPN.com on Friday.  "My thought used to be that we should definitely change the rule, and then having sat through several general managers meetings, competition meetings and having heard from some of the game's very best, the view is the players should hit their free throws. That's changed my view a little bit."

"Having said that, when I watch some of these games on television, frankly, it's not great entertainment for our fans, and that's important as well," Silver continued.  "What I've said is we have another general managers meeting coming up in May, we have a competition committee meeting in June, and I'm sure it's going to be a hot topic of discussion. Then, we have an owners meeting in July, so I think at all three of those meetings we're going to be having full-throated conversations about what the right rules should be going forward."

Shaquille O'Neal was famously fouled on purpose because of his poor free-throw shooting throughout his career and other teams have tried the same thing to opposing poor free-throw percentage players.

"We're very conservative when it comes to changing the rules of the game," Silver said.  "That's why changing the rules of the game requires more than the majority of the owners; it requires a super majority. So we've got to be very careful, but it is something that we're looking at closely."
