On The Fly: Red Sox Flashing Some Sizable Numbers

The numbers keep getting gaudier for the Red Sox, who done a sweep of the Mariners with a 12-8 victory Sunday at Fenway Park. Tim Wakefield, who will be 45 on Aug. two, got his 199th career win & two,000th strikeout as a member of the Red Sox. The Sox are 62-37, which makes them 60-27 since April 15. They are 16-3 in July, & they have done this with top beginning pitchers on the disabled list & with outfielder Carl Crawford either injured or underperforming for most of the season. Now Crawford is hitting .375 in 24 at-bats since coming off the DL last week, & Jon Lester will rejoin the rotation on Monday.

The Yankees, 11-9 in July, are hanging in. They beat the A's 7-5 as Mariano Rivera escaped a ninth-inning mess with a line-drive double play. The Yankees are games behind Boston, but still have a seven-game lead in the loss column in the wild card race. � It is been a hard fall for the Mariners, who were fashioning themselves contenders a couple of weeks ago. They have lost 15 in a row now & start a three-game series at Yankee Stadium on Monday. � The Mets, who haven't begun dismantling yet, lost to the Marlins, 5-4.

Is our long, national nightmare finally over? Multiple news outlets are reporting NFL owners & players have reached a deal with no issues remaining & that ratification by the players is thought about a mere formality. It could happen Monday. This will touch off a free agent free-for-all, then an abbreviated training camp &, finally, some footy. � Before camp, a setback for the Patriots: Tully Banta-Cain had surgical procedure after aggravating an abdominal injury in a recent workout, which figures to set him back weeks, according to ESPNBoston.

He is been thought about a favourite several times & come up short, but Cadel Evans at last reached the finish line of the Tour de Spain with the unobstructed view. He is the first Australian to win the race. � Although Michael Phelps swam his leg well, the Americans settled for the bronze in the 4x100-meter freestyle relay at the World Championships in Shanghai, the first relay Americans have lost at a World Championships or Olympics since 2007. Phelps has six more events.
