The Oakland A's completed a sweep of the Boston Red Sox with a 3-2 win Wednesday. It was the first time the Sox had been swept in Oakland since 2008.
After the game, Cody Ross told reporters that the offense needs to do a better job of scoring runs since the pitchers have been throwing well.
The Boston Bruins selected a local kid, Boston University's Charlie McAvoy with 14th pick in 2016 NHL Draft.
*The speedy Charlie McAvoy, who was arguably BU’s best defenseman last season as the youngest player in college hockey: “The thing that impressed me the most is how he handled the physical aspect of college hockey. He was the youngest kid in college hockey and played half the season as a 17-year-old going up against 22, 23 and 24-year old kids. A lot of kids come into college hockey and have good seasons statistically, but can get physically overwhelmed at that level. That didn’t happen with Charlie at all. A lot of times he’d go in one-on-one with guys six or seven years older than him, and he’d win the battle. That says an awful lot about him as a player. You add that to his skating ability, his vision and his hockey sense, and he’s put himself in position to be a top-10 draft pick.”
