Bogaerts homers to help Boston salvage split with Guardians

Xander Bogaerts hit a three-run homer in the sixth inning, and the Boston Red Sox defeated the Cleveland Guardians 4-2 on Thursday night for just their fifth victory in 20 games. Guardians starter Triston McKenzie, who had permitted one run total in four previous July starts, took a one-hit shutout into the sixth before putting two on with one out for Bogaerts. The Red Sox shortstop hit an 0-2 slider out to center field to turn a one-run deficit into a 3-1 lead. Boston scored another off McKenzie, who hadn’t allowed an extra-base hit all month, when Franchy Cordero led off the seventh with a double and scored […]

The Philadelphia 76ers officially stated on Wednesday their new deal with veteran James Harden.

Boston Celtics among teams to engage in talks with Brooklyn Nets on possible Kevin Durant deal

As Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant’s trade request approaches a fourth week, the Boston Celtics have emerged among teams engaged in talks on a possible deal, sources told ESPN. The Celtics appear no closer to acquiring Durant than others in discussions with the Nets, but Boston’s capacity to include All-Star forward Jaylen Brown as a centerpiece in offers does help make the team formidable in its pursuit, sources said. The Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns and Toronto Raptors have been well-known to have varying degrees of interest in Durant, but the Celtics have also been in regular contact with the Nets, sources said.

Giancarlo Stanton, Byron Buxton homer as American League wins 9th straight All-Star Game

The first All-Star Game at Dodger Stadium in 42 years featured Clayton Kershaw starting in front of the home fans and appearances from Albert Pujols and Miguel Cabrera, but the final score looked all too familiar: The American League won 3-2 for its ninth consecutive All-Star triumph and 21st in the past 25 Midsummer Classics. The game turned in the fourth inning when Giancarlo Stanton and Byron Buxton delivered back-to-back home runs off the Dodgers’ Tony Gonsolin. Neither were cheated with their swings. Stanton’s game-tying two-run shot was a 457-foot blast to left-center — longer than any home run hit at Dodger Stadium in the first half of the season. […]

Saratoga 2022: Travers could be Charge It’s coming-out party

The talent has always been there; Todd Pletcher has never had any doubts about that. His colt named Charge It, at some point this year, is going to make some loud noise in the land of the 3-year-olds. That big bang could be coming, and soon. Show up to Saratoga Race Course at the end of August. That very well could be the coming-out party for Charge It, a gray son of Tapit. Just listen to the words from Pletcher, who doesn’t hand out praises like some might hand out M&Ms on Halloween. “From the talent prospective, he can be as […]

Cole, Carpenter send Yanks over Red Sox 13-2; Sale hurt

Gerrit Cole brushed back Rafael Devers and struck out 12, Matt Carpenter drove in three more runs and the New York Yankees pounded the Red Sox 13-2 Sunday after Boston ace Chris Sale broke his left pinkie finger in the first inning. The Yankees reached double-digit runs for the 16th time — no other team has more than 10 such games — and cruised into the All-Star break with a major league-best record of 64-28. Their 64 victories matched the 2018 Astros for third-most prior to the break since the All-Star Game started in 1933. Cole (9-2) dusted Devers off the plate with a low, 99 mph fastball on […]
