Scalabrine had own song, big poster in Italy

When E'Twaun Moore returned from playing basketball with Brian Scalabrine in Italy, the Celtics rookie brought with him perhaps one of the greatest songs you can't find on iTunes.

The unofficial Italian Scal anthem.

This isn't the standard "Scal-a-bri-ne" chant heard in the NBA, either. The ditty was a hit at all the Benetton Treviso home games.

"Scal is the White Mamba," he explained to CSNNE.com on Media Day. "We had a big sign, a poster of him with the headband with the curly hair that said, White Mamba. And he had his own song."

Moore smirked, and without being prompted belted out, "Ohhhhhh Scalabreeene."

An overnight sensation.

"The fans would be singing it and hed be waving his hands like a conductor," Moore continued. "Theyd be like, Ohhhhhh Scalabreeene (trails off off laughing). He had his own song and his own poster in the gym during game time. Huge."

Red Sox take weekend series against Cubs with 6-2 victory

BOSTON - Marco Hernandez scored the go-ahead run on Pedro Strop's wild pitch in Boston's four-run eighth inning, helping the Red Sox beat the sloppy Chicago Cubs 6-2 on Sunday night.

The Red Sox took two of three in the lively weekend series that featured a strong showing for Cubs fans, chants in support of each side and the World Series trophies that ended long title droughts for the once-frustrated franchises.

Hanley Ramirez hit a two-run homer for Boston, and the Red Sox got two more runs on shortstop Addison Russell's throwing error in the eighth.

Kris Bryant hit a solo homer for Chicago, extending his hitting streak to 11 games. The Cubs closed a nine-game road trip at 5-4.
