BOSTON (AP) — The Red Sox have found different ways to win ball games over the past month. Their latest came thanks to relentless offense and a rare defensive feat. Xander Bogaerts had three hits, Hanley Ramirez, Sandy Leon and Jackie Bradley Jr. all added two RBIs and the Boston Red Sox beat...

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Rickie Fowler, golf's version of an action hero, keeps showing up too late to save himself at the majors. His final six holes at the PGA Championship were nothing short of remarkable, the very reason why Fowler should remain in the category of "when" and not "if" as it...

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — After missing 13 games last season after back surgery, J.J. Watt relishes any chance to compete. So Houston’s star defensive end was positively giddy on Tuesday after he and the Texans had the first of two joint practices with Tom Brady and the New England...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Justin Thomas is a major champion. When he became one is more meaningful than where. If he had to pick a major to win first, the PGA Championship would have been the most appropriate because of his family heritage. The first person he hugged was his father. The first...
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods had the active ingredient for marijuana, two painkillers and two sleep drugs in his system when he was arrested on a DUI charge earlier this year, a report released Tuesday by police said. Police in Jupiter, Florida, released the report less than a week...
MIAMI (AP) — All eyes are on Giancarlo Stanton and he keeps delivering. Baseball's $325-million man homered in his sixth consecutive game to give him a major league-leading 44, but the Miami Marlins fell 9-4 to the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night. "Obviously very dangerous right now,"...
(AP) — Top high school prospect Marvin Bagley III has committed to Duke and is eligible to play in the 2017-18 season, immediately making the Blue Devils a top national-title contender. Bagley made his announcement on ESPN's "SportsCenter" on Monday night. The 6-foot-11 Bagley is widely...
WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts city has overwhelmingly passed a resolution directing the city manager to try and bring the Pawtucket Red Sox from Rhode Island. The Worcester City Council approved the resolution Tuesday night that directed the city manager to “do all that is reasonably...

WINCHESTER, N.H. — Monadnock Speedway was back in action Saturday night with the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series and the Granite State Pro Stock Series for their annual JBH 100. Racing started early due to rain but unfortunately it still shortened the program. The Sportsman Modifieds and Thunder...

MIAMI (AP) — Given Giancarlo Stanton's recent home run binge, Derek Jeter may decide baseball's biggest contract is a bargain. Stanton signed a record $325 million, 13-year deal in 2014 with the Miami Marlins, and they still owe him about $300 million — an eye-popping number even to a former All...
