First innings have become the Red Sox‘ worst nightmare of late. For the third consecutive game, they gave up at least two runs in the initial frame, harpooning their chances the rest of the way.
The misery may have begun in the first, but it didn’t end until just after 11 p.m. Wednesday when the White Sox, sealed their 9-2 victory. The Red Sox have now dropped the first three games of their four-game set with Chicago, and 13 of their last 16 dating back to July 10.
It didn’t take long for the...
Sandoval went 0-for-1 with a walk before being replaced in the top of the sixth by new infielder Josh Rutledge. The game-time temperature was 91 degrees.
Sandoval had a rough night before departing. After walking to lead off the third, he was waved home on a double by Ryan Hanigan, but thrown out in a bang-bang play at home plate by a relay from right fielder Avisail Garcia to second baseman Carlos Sanchez to catcher Tyler Flowers.
He also continued to show limited range at third base, particularly on a...
The NFLPA filed an appeal Wednesday on behalf of Tom Brady in U.S. District Court of Minnesota to vacate the four-game suspension upheld by commissioner Roger Goodell based on the following points, directly from their press release.
— There was no direct evidence in the Wells Report so the discipline was based on a made up “general awareness” standard to justify such absurd and unprecedented punishment.

— A collectively bargained policy already exists regarding tampering with equipment that...
The Patriots placed running back LeGarrette Blount, defensive lineman Alan Branch and offensive lineman Caylin Hauptmann on the non-football injury list on Wednesday, according to the NFL transaction wire.
No reason was given for the move, but players who have been placed on NFI prior to the start of camp in year’s past have often found themselves there because they have failed the conditioning test and/or their physical. (Players on the non-football injury list are there because they are classified as unable to practice as a result of conditions unrelated to football. They are eligible to return to the practice field at any time.)
In addition, the transaction wire revealed that the Patriots came to terms with exclusive rights free agent James Develin. The fullback has been with New England the last three seasons. And the team officially announced the signing of veteran cornerback Tarell Brown. The 30-year-old Brown is a veteran of eight...
In the wake of a crushing fall over the right field fence during Tuesday night’s 9-4 loss to the White Sox, Red Sox center fielder Mookie Betts will be placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list.
According to manager John Farrell, the 22-year-old underwent extensive testing after the game, all of which ruled out further injury.
“[Betts] has been placed on the seven-day concussion DL,” Farrell said. “Obviously, it was confirmed, consistent with the symptoms last night and the further testing, it’s clear he’s got a concussion. The timetable for this is unknown, but every...
