Sox make it interesting, still lose to Orioles
By: DJ Bean

The Red Sox were in danger of being no-hit in a blowout Wednesday. Thanks to a five-run ninth, it just looked like a plain old normal 10-6 loss by the end of the game.

Dan Butler ended Wei-Yin Chen’€™s perfect game bid at 16 batters by belting a one-out double in the sixth inning. Xander Bogaerts followed the next inning with a solo homer to make it 8-1, but it was the Sox’€™ busy ninth after giving up two more runs that made things interesting. Daniel Nava drove in two with a double and Carlos Rivero followed with a three-run homer.

Wednesday marked the second straight day in which Bogaerts homered, bringing his total on the season to 11 dingers.

Butler doubled again in the bottom of the eight inning, but as was the case with his previous hit, he was left stranded as...

Brady removed from Patriots injury report

Five players were listed as limited on the Patriots injury report on Wednesday, including tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) and center Ryan Wendell (knee).

Gronkowski, who suffered a season-ending knee injury last December, is still working to get back to 100 percent, while Wendell apparently left the game late Sunday with a knee issue that required attention.

However, three notable players who were not listed include quarterback Tom Brady, who popped up on the injury report last week with a calf issue, and wide receiver Aaron Dobson, who sat out the opener last week against the Dolphins with a foot problem, one that has dogged him all the way back to last year. In addition, it appeared late in Sunday’s game that cornerback...

Boychuk: 'I don't want to be traded at all'
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON — Johnny Boychuk hopes he hasn’€™t played his last game as a Bruin.

With the Bruins in a tight spot salary cap-wise ($3.218 million in space, assuming Marc Savard is put on long-term injured reserve), the team more or less needs to make some sort of move in order to sign Torey Krug and Reilly Smith, both of whom remain without contracts with just over a week before training camp begins.

Boychuk is a potential trade candidate because he is entering the final year of his contract and, should he reach free agency, would be worth more than the Bruins could afford. His limited no-trade clause also expired on May 31. Though he’s a key member of Boston’s blue line,...

Farrell: Pedroia 'moving towards' likely surgery

Red Sox manager John Farrell said while there were no firm plans to do so yet, surgery to address the ongoing inflammation he’s experienced throughout this season represents a likely outcome. For now, Farrell suggested, the surgery has yet to be scheduled, but that appears the likely conclusion of this process after Tuesday’s MRI revealed the worsening inflammation.

“Nothing definitive. He and we are still gathering information. It’s moving towards probably a procedure, but nothing definitive is scheduled right now,” said Farrell.

Of course, the idea of fixing what currently ails Pedroia is one thing. Going forward, the Sox face the...

Brady: Pats see 'quality of life issues' after loss

brightcove.createExperiences();

FOXBORO — Tom Brady knew this would be a long, miserable week. It always is when you go to work at Gillette Stadium after a loss.

“We’re a long ways from the team we’re going to be,” Brady said Wednesday morning. “We hate losing. It’s a terrible feeling, it’s a terrible feeling around here. It’s a quality of life issue I think we all face when we lose, and hopefully it motivates us to go out there and have a great week of practice and be prepared for this game and go out there and try to be a very good team.”

Brady and his teammates were back on the field in full pads Wednesday trying to get ready for...
