Baseball

⚾️Red Sox: Boston’s pitching struggled in their 7–2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday and things only got worse from there, as they fell 18–4 to the Jays yesterday. Hey, we thought this was baseball, not football? Hopefully pitcher Nathan Eovaldi will have better luck tonight in the final game of the series, starting at 7:10 p.m. ET.

  • Off the field, beloved broadcaster and former Red Sox second baseman Jerry Remy, who is in remission from cancer, gave us a scare on Friday when he left the booth with shortness of breath. Thankfully, he’s now “resting comfortably” at Mass General. Get well soon, Rem Dawg!

💪Injury updates: 

  • ⚾️Back to the Red Sox pitching situation: ace Chris Sale threw off the mound at Fenway, a major step in his recovery from Tommy John surgery
  • 🏈Patriots quarterback Cam Newton could return to practice as early as today after suffering a hand injury.
