Former Jet botches J-E-T-S spelling during pick

FOXBORO -- The NFL had former and current players announce picks during the second and third rounds of the NFL draft Friday night. Some went better than others. 

Perhaps not surprisingly, the Jets were one of the teams that exerienced less-than-smooth sailing. Former Jets fullback Tony Richardson, who was announcing the team's selection at No. 79 overall, attempted the team's "J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets" cheer, but whiffed on the spelling. 

"With the 79th pick in the 2017 NFL draft," Richardson said, "the New York J-E-T-E Jets select ArDarius Stewart, receiver, Alabama."

Benintendi, Red Sox hang on to beat Cubs, 5-4

BOSTON - Andrew Benintendi hit a solo homer off Jake Arrieta during a five-run first inning and the Boston Red Sox held on to beat the Chicago Cubs 5-4 Friday night.

Every Boston starter had at least one hit, and Hanley Ramirez, Mitch Moreland, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Christian Vazquez also drove in a run each.

Left-hander Drew Pomeranz (2-1) got the win with six innings of two-run ball, surrendering solo homers to Kris Bryant and Albert Almora Jr. in the early innings before settling in. He allowed six hits and two walks while striking out seven.

Boston has won its last nine interleague games at Fenway Park.

Arrieta (3-1) logged his shortest start since Aug. 28, 2014, lasting only 4 1/3 innings and giving up 10 hits and three walks with five strikeouts.
