The professional sports teams of Boston have formed a fraternity over the years, as franchises have traded championship runs and time in the spotlight across almost two decades of unprecedented success.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick likes what he sees with the Red Sox this year.

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox will conclude their four-game series Sunday night, with Masahiro Tanaka facing David Price.

"What a game that was Sunday". He had plenty to say about Moss and his induction into Canton, and couldn't help but gush about Boston's baseball team following a four-game sweep of their fiercest rival. "I marvel at the way they compete and how consistent they've been, how many people have contributed. They provided us with a great experience in June for our football team". But what he witnessed at Fenway on Sunday was something special. Boston's closer, Craig Kimbrel, is one of them. Brock Holt struck out looking.

The team of former professional players and commentators was said to have ranked in the 99.95th percentile in the world. OpenAI is scheduled to face an active professional squad at The International 8, which kicks off on August 15.

Sandy Leon looped a two-out single off Jonathan Holder (1-3) in the 10th and advanced on a wild pitch. Andrew Benintendi struck out looking. He allowed three walks and J.D. Martinez's two-out, two-run, bases-loaded single over second baseman Gleyber Torres' leaping attempt, cutting New York's lead to 4-3.

Before the dramatic rally lifted the Red Sox to their sixth four-game sweep of the Yankees at Fenway and fourth since divisional play began in 1969, the Yankees scored four times in the seventh.
