Even playing in wild chills below freezing couldn’t slow down the red-hot Boston Red Sox.
Andrew Benintendi got three hits and the Red Sox extended the best start in their 118-year history, beating the Baltimore Orioles 3-1 Sunday at frigid Fenway Park.
I was miserable, nothing short of miserable, Boston ace Chris Sale said. I said it when I came out of the game: `This is the most miserable I’ve ever been on a baseball field, by far, not even close.
Kids Omri Casspi Jersey Mitch Moreland also had three hits for the Red Sox, who improved to a major league-best 13-2 under new manager Alex Cora.
It was tough, Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. Obviously, Chris Sale is an outstanding pitcher and we think Dylan is, too.
Trailing 1-0 in the fifth, the Red Sox tied it on Benintendi’s RBI triple. They went ahead the next inning when J.D. Martinez scored on a wild pitch after reaching on third baseman Danny Valencia’s fielding error and advancing on Moreland’s double. Tzu-Wei Lin’s RBI double made it 3-1.
Wade turned in a vintage performance, scoring 28 points to end the 76ers’ 17-game winning streak and lead the Miami Heat to a 113-103 Game 2 win over Philadelphia on Monday night and even the first-round playoff series.
It’s just in my DNA, Wade said. I love the stage.
The 36-year-old flashed the form of a three-time NBA champion with the Heat, not the Authentic Joffrey Lupul Jersey journeyman who bounced around the last two seasons with forgettable stints in Chicago and Cleveland.
Wade made 11 of 17 shots and put on a show in the second quarter and put it away in the fourth.
I saw moments, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. That’s what defines Dwyane Wade.
The 76ers could soon get their defining Process moment from Embiid.
