Seattle's Felix Hernandez threw the first perfect game in Mariners' history with a 12-strikeout performance against the Rays, capped off by a strikeout of Tampa's Sean Rodriguez to end the 1-0 game. Hernandez was dominant late as he struck out the side in the sixth and seventh innings, and added three more in the eighth and ninth innings.
It was the 23rd perfect game in MLB history, with three happening this season. Ironically, it wasn't even the first one at Safeco Field this season. Chicago's Philip Humber was perfect against Seattle earlier this season. The Giants' Matt Cain also threw a perfect game this season.
BALTIMORE -- Adrian Gonazalez told WEEI.com that the characterization of him in a Yahoo! Sports story involving a meeting between players and management in July about manager Bobby Valentine wasn't accurate.
"The source is inaccurate," Gonzalez said. "He says that I was animated and one of the most vocal guys in the meeting and that's false. If somebody's going to try to be an unnamed source, they better be right with what they say, because this is putting our integrity and everyone about us out there and that's just unfair."
He continued, "Just like every story around here there's parts that are true and parts that are false. I think that's wrong for the fans to get half of a story, half of a truth. Our focus has been to go out and play ball and just worry about baseball. Things come up like this that we have to respond to, but or focus is just to play ball."
Gonzalez said it was owner John Henry...
FOXBORO -- For the first time since playing in Thursday night's preseason opener against the Saints, Rob Gronkowski was back in uniform for Wednesday's full pads practice on the upper fields outside Gillette Stadium. Gronkowski fully participated in all parts of practice after spending the previous three days in just sweat pants and a t-shirt.
Also returning Wednesday were tight end Aaron Hernandez and wide receiver Brandon Lloyd. Hernandez was in only shorts on Monday and wasn't seen Tuesday while Hernandez and Lloyd were sweats on Tuesday.
The Patriots are not required to release injury reports during training camp or the preseason, a fact that coach Bill Belichick alluded to during his Wednesday press conference.
All three players appeared to be running at full speed with no apparent injuries visible.
Meanwhile, starting left guard Logan Mankins was in full pads for the first time Wednesday and saw more...
FOXBORO -- Jabar Gaffney missed most of full pads practice on Wednesday afternoon after pulling up and grabbing his right quadriceps during one-on-one drills between wide receivers and cornerbacks.
Just 30 minutes into practice, Gaffney blew by Devin McCourty on a sideline route down the right side trying to catch a ball thrown by Tom Brady. Gaffney clutched at his right leg and limped off to the sideline on his own power. He was seen by the Patriots medical staff and then treated at midfield, where he remained with his pads off for the rest of practice. Team doctor Tom Gill and trainers spent several minutes with Gaffney before leaving him to rest on the sidelines.
Gaffney has been practicing with the starting unit for most of training camp, as he fights for a starting job in the deep Patriots receiving corps.
Also injured on Wednesday was backup defensive lineman Marcus Harrison, who left during 11-on-11 drills later in...
