Olympic Sports

The GIST: As soon as we saw Jason Varitek pushing Dustin Pedroia in the home run cart, we knew it was going to be a good sports weekend. Hey Google, play our favorite video of all time.

โšพ๏ธRed Sox: Rafael Devers went three-for-four and blasted his 19th home run of the year yesterday, helping the Sox to a 9โ€“2 win and a series sweep over the NY Yankees. Itโ€™s the second time Boston has swept the Yankees this season. Some rivalry, huh?

  • The Sox now face the Kansas City Royals tonight at 7:10 p.m. ET, but while you wait, you can vote for Bostonโ€™s four All-Star finalists beginning today at noon. 

๐Ÿ‘ŸTrack & Field: Massachusetts will be well-represented on the international stage in Tokyo. As we mentioned, Harvard grad Gabby Thomas qualified for her first-ever Olympics with a blazing fast finish in the 200m.

  • Sheโ€™ll be joined by Peabody-native, UMass Amherst alum and Dunkinโ€™ lover Heather MacLean, who finished third in the 1,500m, and former UMass Boston star Wadeline Jonathas, who qualified in the 400m. Wicked proud.
