Garoppolo leads way as Patriots edge Saints

Tom Brady got the start, but it was backup Jimmy Garoppolo who really had a good night, completing 10 straight passes at one point and leading the Patriots to a 26-24 comeback win over the Saints Saturday evening in New Orleans.

Garoppolo drove the Patriots the length of the field in the fourth quarter before giving way to Stephen Gostkowski, who booted a 35-yarder with 14 seconds left for the game-winner. Garoppolo finished 28-for-33 for 269 yards with one touchdown and one interception. The Patriots also got impressive performances from wide receivers Brandon Gibson (eight catches, 68 yards), Chris Harper (five catches, 69 yards, one touchdown) and Jonathan Krause (six catches. 55 yards). In addition, running back Dion Lewis (five catches, 36 yards) looked impressive in the win.

Late rally comes up short as Sox fall to Royals

A night after scoring seven runs off Johnny Cueto, the Red Sox couldn’t keep the offensive momentum going.

Royals starter Yordano Ventura was able to keep the Red Sox in check as he limited the Sox to one run over six innings, as the Royals topped the Red Sox, 6-3.

The loss snapped the Red Sox’ season-high four-game win streak.

The Sox’ offense finally was able to get on the board in the sixth on a Travis Shaw fielder’s choice, which scored Xander Bogaerts. Mookie Betts added a solo home run in the seventh inning, which cleared everything in left field and then Bogaerts added an RBI-single in the ninth.

Although they finished with just three runs, they had their chances.

In the first inning Shaw flew out to left field with runners on first and...

Cherington on Hanley in LF: 'It hasn't gone well'

Just because former Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington is out of a job at the moment, it didn’t stop him from attending the Saberseminar at Boston University as previously scheduled.

According to those at the event, Cherington joked, it’s “€œa progressive event that even invites the unemployed.”

Conducting a Q&A with those attending, Cherington was asked a number of questions about the Red Sox‘ organization and some of the recent moves that he and the organization made.

Cherington signed Hanley Ramirez to a four-year, $88 million this offseason, as he...

Porcello (triceps strain) nearing return

Rick Porcello is nearing a return to the Red Sox‘ starting rotation.

Making his second rehab start Friday night, after throwing 3 2/3 innings (rain-shortened) in his first rehab start with Single-A Lowell, Porcello went 5 2/3 innings, allowing three runs, three hits and striking out six on 81 pitches with Triple-A Pawtucket as he works his way back from a triceps strain.

He allowed two runs in the first inning and another in the second, but settled down, retiring the final 13 batters he faced.

“He did well yesterday,” interim manager Torey Lovullo said. “A little bit more conversation that I had with him — the first couple of innings had trouble finding some rhythm, which is to be expected just getting back into the flow...
