Mayo on M&M: 'Back to the drawing board'

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo joined the Mut & Merloni show Friday to discuss Thursday's impressive preseason victory over the Buccaneers.

"Coach has been putting in new things each and every day. We've just been trying to see what works," Mayo said. "Last night, some things worked well for us. We'll go back to the drawing board and take those good things out and work on the bad plays and see what happens."

Asked about the Patriots' apparent move to use the 4-3 more often, Mayo was noncommittal. "I don't know what we're going to run," he said. "I'm sure we'll show a lot of different looks."

Rookies attempting to learn the Patriots' system have had a short offseason due to the lockout, but Mayo offers no excuses for them.

"There's no sympathy on Sundays. None at all," he said with a laugh. "At the same time, these coaches are — we're meeting a lot, they're throwing a lot...

Mashup: Georgetown brawls in China

The Georgetown basketball team's goodwill tour of China lacked goodwill Thursday night. A chippy game against the Bayi Rockets in Beijing ended with about 9½ minutes left when a huge brawl broke out. In a video of the incident, Chinese players appear to be the aggressors, throwing punches, swinging chairs and tossing water bottles. That led Georgetown coach John Thompson III to pull his team off the court. Thompson, who was berated by a Chinese player early in the game, did his best to downplay the incident after retreating to his hotel.

Read more about that story and others, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Friday's Morning Mashup.

Gonzalez: Neck not to blame for slump

KANSAS CITY -- After going 0-for-4 in the Red Sox' 4-3 win over the Royals, first baseman Adrian Gonzalez dismissed any notion that his recent struggles at the plate were being caused by the stiff neck referenced by Sox manager Terry Francona prior to Wednesday's game at Fenway Park.

"The neck has been fine," Gonzalez said. "It's something that flared up right before Chicago [July 30], when we were playing [Kansas City] in the day game [July 28]. It flared up the next day and it has been getting better ever since. It created a couple of mechanical things I've been working through."

After his three groundouts and one strikeout, Gonzalez has now gone four straight games without a hit. Prior to current stretch, the first baseman had only gone hitless in back-to-back games three times all season.

"I'm not hitting because my swing isn't good right now, not because of my neck," he explained.

Gonzalez has also...

Belichick: Woodhead 'seemed all right'

With less than five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter of Thursday's 31-14 win over the Buccaneers, Patriots running back Danny Woodhead -- playing on special teams -- took a vicious and dizzying helmet-to-helmet hit from Devin Holland while covering a punt. He made it to the sidelines but medical staff immediately took his helmet away and tended to him.

"I saw him in the locker room," Pats coach Bill Belichick said afterward. "He seemed all right. We'll see how it goes." 

“He got hit pretty hard," added quarterback Tom Brady. "That’s football. There’s guys moving fast out there, especially on punt returns or any of the returns. Things are happening so fast. He just turned his head and the guy really gave it to him good. He’s a tough guy. Everyone’s worried about him, as his teammates would be. Hopefully, he’s OK."

"I'm just trying to coach our team...

Beckett, Pedroia pace Sox past Royals

KANSAS CITY -- Josh Beckett earned his first victory since July 23, and Dustin Pedroia continued his dominance of Royals pitching with three hits, as the Red Sox kicked off their four-game series at Kauffman Stadium with a 4-3 win over KC Thursday night.

Beckett finished his seven-inning stint by giving up three runs on seven hits, striking out four and not walking a batter. The 110-pitch outing was the first time the starter had gone seven innings since he accomplished the feat against the Royals July 28.

Pedroia paced the Sox attack with two singles, a double and three RBI (all coming with two outs). The 3-for-4 effort made the Sox second baseman 12-for-22 against the Royals in five meetings this season. 

The only other RBI for the Red Sox came from Jason Varitek, whose second-inning single scored Josh Reddick, tying the game at 1-1 at the time. 

Beckett did allow the Royals to come back after a Pedroia single plated a...
