Belichick: Pats 'nowhere close' to ready

After watching his star quarterback hit the turf six times in the first half, including a pair of crushing hits on the pass rush, Patriots coach Bill Belichick ripped his team after a 30-28 preseason loss to the Buccaneers Friday night in Tampa. Tom Brady was strip-sacked again and forced a pass into triple-coverage that was intercepted and returned for a touchdown.

“Can’t score offensively, give up too many points on defense, couldn’t make any plays in the kicking game, then you don’t have a real good chance to win and that’s pretty much the way it was," Belichick said. "We have a lot of work to do. We’re nowhere close where we need to be. Hopefully, we can close the gap here pretty soon.

“We didn’t do anything offensively except lose yardage and turn the ball over, so yeah, it was tough to watch any of what we did offensively. It wasn’t anything. Throw them the ball, can’t make...

Ridley runs, Demps electric, Brady hit in loss

Stevan Ridley ran 16 times for 87 yards and a touchdown Friday while Tom Brady was 13-of-20 for 127 yards with a touchdown pass to Rob Gronkowski, but the Patriots lost their second straight preseason game, 30-28, to the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. Brady faced constant pressure all night and took several big hits as the Patriots' makeshift offensive line continues to struggle. 

Brady, who played the first three quarters, threw a pass in the first quarter that was tipped by Ronde Barber and intercepted by rookie Mark Barron and returned 22 yards for a Tampa Bay touchdown. The game also marked the debut of Olympic sprinter Jeff Demps. He returned two kickoffs in the second half, one for 23 yards and the other for 21 yards. He returned another punt for 20 yards but that was called back on a holding penalty. Demps also got some work as a running back, breaking out for a 29-yard run on New England's third scoring drive to set...

Lester injured as Sox beat Royals

Jon Lester continued his recent string of strong starts, allowing three runs over seven-plus innings before departing with an apparent leg injury while pitching to the first batter of the eighth inning, as the Red Sox enjoyed a 4-3 comeback victory over the Royals.

It was the fourth quality start for Lester in his last five outings. In that span, he has a 3.12 ERA. For the first time all season, he's also now won three straight starts, improving to 8-10 in the process. The left-hander struck out six and walked four while permitting six hits.

He was on the hook for the loss, as the Sox trailed, 3-2, entering the seventh. After the team took a 2-0 lead in the first on David Ortiz' two-run single in his first game off the disabled list, Lester allowed Kansas City to claim the lead with two runs in the third and another in the fourth. However, Pedro Ciriaco continued his unlikely string of key hits by lofting a flare over the head of Royals third...

Gonzalez scratched from Sox lineup

With rumors that Adrian Gonzalez had been claimed by the Dodgers on waivers and was being discussed in a blockbuster that would send Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto to Los Angeles in exchange for James Loney and minor leaguers, Gonzalez -- slated to bat fifth in the Red Sox lineup -- was scratched about 10 minutes before the scheduled first pitch of Friday's game between the Red Sox and Royals, replaced in the lineup by Mauro Gomez at first base. Loney was also scratched from the Dodgers lineup against the Marlins.

According to an industry source, the Red Sox and Dodgers are currently reviewing medical records as a prelude to a potential deal.
