In an interview with ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss, Patriots left tackle Nate Solder revealed he was diagnosed and treated for testicular cancer prior to the 2014 season. He said he first became suspicious right before his season physical. After the physical he received an ultrasound and three days later he had surgery.
“I knew nothing about it.

Palmer tweeted: FINALLY Oritz gets tossed with hashtags that included #ZipitOrtiz and #disrespectful. Then, early Monday, Palmer tweeted another not-so thinly veiled shot at Ortiz: O’s fans: Marathon day in Boston. What’s the over under on Ortiz going 9?

Baltimore committed three errors leading to five unearned runs.

The Red Sox-Orioles game Monday was stopped in the middle of the seventh inning for a rain delay with the Red Sox leading 7-1.

The rain delay officially began at 1:25 p.m. The game was officially called almost two hours later.
