⚾️Red Sox: The Sox aren’t heading into the All-Star break on a high note after falling 5–4 to the Philadelphia Phillies yesterday. That said, there’s plenty to celebrate off the diamond as the Sox drafted projected No. 1 pick shortstop Marcelo Mayer at No. 4 in the MLB Draft. Welcome to the Hub.

  • As for current stars, tune into tomorrow’s MLB All-Star Game to root for the dynamic left side duo of Xander Bogaerts and Rafael Devers, along with the other three Sox All-Stars. Get your game on.

🏈Football: Thanks to Saturday’s 63–3 rout of the Tampa Bay Inferno (take that, Champa Bay!), the Renegades advanced to their fourth straight Women’s Football Alliance (WFA) title game. And if they win the title on July 24th, it’ll be the Renegades’ third straight championship. They don’t call us Title Town for nothing.
