Homeless pizza delivery spurs Sox HR barrage

It might have been strictly a coincidence. Then again, maybe it wasn’t.

One night after Blake Swihart hit two home runs in the Red Sox‘ Tuesday night win over the Yankees, Mookie Betts repeated the feat in the Sox’ 9-5, 11-inning victory at Yankee Stadium.

What did they have in common? Pizza and selflessness.

“Me and Blake yesterday when we got to eat we had a pizza left and he said the night before he had given it to a homeless guy and he hit two home runs so I had a pizza and I gave it to a homeless guy and hit two home runs so maybe pass it onto the next person,...

Closing Time: Betts lifts Red Sox to 6th straight

The quest for .500 lives. If only there was more season to go along with it.

The Red Sox won their season-high sixth in a row on Wednesday, beating the Yankees 9-5 in 11 innings.

The winning run came off the bat of rookie Deven Marrero, who sliced a hit-and-run single up the middle to score Travis Shaw from third. Outfielder Mookie Betts later added his second homer of the game, and 18th of the season, to put it away.

The Red Sox improved to 78-80 with four games remaining. If they can win three more, they’ll finish 81-81, an impressive feat for a club that was 14 games under ....

Padres make Orsillo hiring official

Don Orsillo is officially a Padre.

The Red Sox broadcaster, whose de facto firing caused a firestorm in New England, will join the Padres next season as a TV and radio broadcaster, the team announced. He’ll shift to TV full-time in 2017 after broadcasting icon Dick Enberg retires.

“We are excited to add Don to our broadcast lineup,” said Padres president and CEO Mike Dee in a statement. “Over his 15 years broadcasting Major League Baseball, Don has established himself as one of the premier play-by-play men in the game. We look forward to both his fun-loving personality and outstanding play-calling ability resonating with Padres fans during what we expect will be a very long career in San Diego.”

Report: Hooman dealt to Saints; Thompkins cut

FOXBORO — The last day before the four-day bye was a busy one for the Patriots.

The team traded veteran tight end Michael Hoomanawanui to the Saints, according to a report from the Boston Globe’s Ben Volin. The Saints have been struggling on offense and are still trying to make up for the loss of tight end Jimmy Graham in an offseason deal to Seattle.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that the Patriots are receiving defensive end Akiem Hicks in return from New Orleans. The Patriots got an up close and personal look at Hicks in August when the Patriots and Saints held two days of joint practices in West Virginia prior to their game on Aug. 22. Hicks started that game at left defensive end and had one tackle.

The 27-year-old Hoomanawanui is in his sixth NFL season and played the last three seasons with the Patriots. The big blocking tight end was...
