Rioters angered by the death of Freddie Gray, a young black man who died last week while in police custody, looted stores, set buildings and police vehicles on fire and threw rocks and bricks at police. Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan called in the National Guard and declared a state of emergency, and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake ordered a week of curfews.
“We feel like we made the decision that would provide us the greatest possible security in terms of protecting the fans, the players, the umpires, everybody involved in the game,” said MLB commissioner Rob...
Red Sox starter Joe Kelly hit 100 MPH with his fastball a few times in Monday’s game against the Blue Jays.
With most pitchers that would be their go-to pitch, but not Kelly on Monday.
The Blue Jays hitters pounced on Kelly’s fastball and jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning and a 5-2 lead going into the bottom of the fourth. Kelly’s big mistake was to rookie Devon Travis in the second inning when he took a Kelly offering into the Monster seats for his sixth home run of the year.
Kelly managed to settle down (despite 33 first inning pitches) and went six innings, allowing five runs on five hits, while walking three and striking out a career-high 10 batters. He’s recorded at least seven strikeouts in three of his first four starts this season. This comes after not striking out more than six in a game prior to coming to the...

Monday night’s Red Sox game might be a glimpse into what most games will be like for the rest of the season.
The Red Sox got an average start from Joe Kelly, but were bailed out by their offense, as they rallied to come from behind and beat the Blue Jays 6-5.
After tying the game at five in the eighth inning after being down 3-0 and 5-2, the Red Sox capped the rally in the ninth with a walkoff base hit by Mookie Betts.
With one out Xander Bogaerts and Ryan Hanigan singled back-to-back, and moved up a base on a wild pitch. Bogaerts then scored the game-winning run on Betts’ hit.
“Once again, aided by a couple of wild pitches to advance 90 feet, Mookie with a key base hit late,...
Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval was having his best game of the season, going 2-for-2 with a single, a home run and three RBI, but was forced to leave the game in the top of the sixth inning.
The team announced he left the game with neck soreness.
The injury likely occurred in the top of the fourth inning when he dove and caught a Dalton Pompey pop up bunt. After making the catch he did a face plant into the ground. He hit his home run after making the play, but then was removed after an inning in the field.
Brock Holt took over at third base with Daniel Nava moving from first base to right field and Allen Craig entering the game at first base.
Sandoval came into the game hitting .273 with a homer and 8 RBI.
