New villains rev up Yankees-Red Sox rivalry

While Chris (Kryptonite) Sale is loathed in the Bronx, Aaron Judge and Sonny Gray have yet to break out in Boston. Look for a wild weekend at Fenway.

A 95.8-mph dart to nab a runner daring to score from third on a single is nice, but Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr.'s "dream play" is more daredevil-ish. "I've thought about climbing that right-centerfield wall (at Fenway), standing on top of it in case the ball is a little bit too far, jump in (the bullpen), catch it, and then throw it back in play," Bradley says. "Would that count as an out? Can y'all research that for me?"

Betts' 2-run double caps Red Sox 5-4 comeback win

Mookie Betts lined a two-run double off the left-field wall with two outs in the ninth inning, capping a three-run rally that lifted the Boston Red Sox to a 5-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night.

Red Sox 5, Cardinals 4: Mookie Betts needed that. It has been a struggle since the All-Star break for last year's AL MVP runner-up. But down to his last strike with two out in the bottom of the ninth inning, Betts doubled off the Green Monster to drive in two runs and give the Red Sox a walkoff victory and a sweep of the two-game interleague series. Xander Bogaerts' leadoff homer started the three-run ninth inning that saw St. Louis manager Mike Matheny get ejected and catcher Yadier Molina spar with the umpires.

Carl Yastrzemski won the Triple Crown in 1967. "Yaz had the most impactful season on a franchise in the history of the game," said Ken "Hawk" Harrelson, at Fenway for 50th anniversary of Red Sox's "Impossible Dream" season. "It was a renaissance of baseball in New England because of No. 8 and No. 16 (Jim Lonborg)."

Breakout hitting prospects of 2017

Before he was mashing in the majors, Rafael Devers was exceeding expectations at the plate in the minors. We look at the Boston phenom and others who have outpaced their projections this season.

Andrew Benintendi on getting hit on the left knee: "It felt fine until I stopped moving for a bit. I think I could've stayed in, but we were up 9-0 at that point so John (Farrell) decided to take me out." Asked if he will be able to play Wednesday night, he said, "We'll see how it feels in the morning and go from there."
