Kevin Walsh has the headlines and highlights for Sunday, July 28th, including the Red Sox' 7-3 win over the Orioles.

* For the first time in two months, the Red Sox took the field on Saturday without the A.L. East lead.

But unlike Friday night when the Sox were punchless at the plate, on Saturday the team broke out of it's post All-Star slump.

Stephen Drew hit two home runs and collected five RBI.

Ryan Dempster picked up the win, allowing two earned runs over 5 1/3 innings.

David Ortiz was ejected for arguing balls and strikes.

Ortiz took his rage out on the dugout phone, breaking the cover with his bat.

* The Red Sox remain connected to some of the top available pitchers, and there may be a new name to add to the list.

The Philles are reportedly listening to offers for lefty ace, Cliff Lee.

With Clay Buchholz still unable to take the hill, and Jon Lester inconsistent, Lee would add a reliable veteran arm to the rotation.

* The Patriots went through Day 2 of training camp, and the focus on Saturday was offense.

Tom Brady enters this season without four of his top five receiving targets from last year.

Brady will need to generate some quick chemistry with newcomers and rookies and he may have already done just that.

Rookie receivers Aaron Dobson and Josh Boyce have made an impression through the first two days of camp. Both will have an opportunity to make an impact on the offense, as there are a number of open slots.
