Sixth-inning rally paces Sox past A's

The Red Sox scored four sixth-inning runs -- all after starting the frame with two quick outs -- on the way to completing a 5-3 victory over the A's in the teams' series finale Sunday in Oakland. Keying the pivotal frame for the Sox were J.D. Drew, whose bases-loaded double knocked in a pair, and pinch-hitter Ryan Kalish. Batting for Bill Hall, Kalish rifled a single that scored two more, giving the Red Sox their first lead of the game. All the runs in the inning were charged to Oakland starter Dallas Braden. The Sox added an insurance run in the eighth when Adrian Beltre scored on throwing error by Oakland reliever Jerry Blevins.

 

Earning the win was Red Sox starter Josh Beckett, who allowed three runs on five hits and five walks, striking out seven, over six innings. Scott Atchison came on for Beckett to pitch two perfect innings, paving the way for closer Jonathan Papelbon to pick up his 36th save by striking out the side in the ninth...

Ochocinco: 'Better team won today'

FOXBORO -- Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco spoke to the media following the Patriots' 38-24 victory Sunday.

 

"All I know is the better team won today," a somber Ochocinco said when asked to assess his team's loss.

 

The Bengals fell behind by 24 points in the first half, proving to be too much for the team to come back from despite a standout performance from Ochocinco. The star wide receiver had 12 catches for 159 yards and a touchdown.

 

Leading up to the game, Ochocinco and Patriots cornerback Darius Butler were involved in some friendly trash talk via their Twitter accounts. After the game, No. 85 had only good things to say about Butler and the Patriots secondary.

 

"They're very good; I have a lot of respect for those guys. Butler is extremely good," Ochocinco said. "The secondary is fine, regardless of what they have personnel wise, Belichick is...

Moss: Offer would be 'slap in the face'

FOXBORO -- Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss told the media on Sunday that if he had to wait until the offseason to be offered a contract extension, it would be a "slap in the face."

 

"Anything I say will probably be blown out of proportion,” Moss said after the Patriots' 38-24 win over the Bengals. "Earlier in the week, I was asked a question about being unhappy, and being unhappy doesn’t have anything to do with toning my game down. I’m here, and I understand my role is to take the ball deep and take the top off the defense."

 

Moss, who had five catches for 59 yards in the win over the Bengals, said he didn't want to leave the Patriots after this season, but, "if I'm not here, I'm not. It's a job."

 

The veteran wideout was asked if he thought these comments would lead to negative feedback from the fans of New England.

Pats fire opening salvo, smash Bengals

FOXBORO -- Wes Welker caught a pair of touchdown passes from Tom Brady, Gary Guyton returned an interception 59 yards for a touchdown and Brandon Tate returned the opening kick of the second half 97 yards for a score as the Patriots coasted to a 38-24 win over the Bengals in the season opener at Gillette Stadium. 

 

The Patriots, who won their ninth straight home opener raced out to a 24-0 lead as Brady and the offense clicked on all cylinders, outgaining Cincinnati, 217-39, at one point. 

 

Brady finished 25-of-35 for 258 yards and three touchdowns. In addition to the two touchdowns, Welker had eight catches in his first official game since injuring his right knee on Jan. 3 against Houston and offseason reconstructive surgery. Rookie tight end Rob Gronkowski also recorded his first career TD, a 2-yard grab from Brady in the fourth quarter to salt the game away.

Seguin: 'Everything is finally here'
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins top prospect Tyler Seguin took part in his first official practice of this year's training camp on Sunday. After voluntarily skating with Bob Essensa's goalie camp last week, he skated alongside Jamie Arniel and Jared Knight as Peter Chiarelli, Cam Neely and Claude Julien looked on.

 

"I'm very excited," said Seguin, the second overall pick in June's NHL draft. "I just know that everything is finally here and this is where all the big impressions are made. It's nice to be out there to be able to show my stuff."

 

The session was closed to the public, but Seguin has gotten plenty of attention in Boston since his selection. In addition to throwing out the first pitch at a Red Sox game on his first day in Boston, he saw the Ristuccia Arena stands packed for this summer's rookie development camp. Seguin, who racked up 106 points in 63 OHL games last year, doesn't mind the attention.

Bogaerts, Pierzynski, and Bradley Jr. are the most obvious culprits. Also, Buster surmises that the Red Sox front office has to be a little uneasy with the fact that their best offensive player, David Ortiz, is in this LATE 30's.
