Littlefield On Sports: Uehara Streak Ends, But Sox Still Ahead
A disappointing night for the Red Sox Tuesday night. They lost to the Baltimore Orioles, 3-2, missing their chance to clinch the playoffs. Closer Koji Uehara ended his cub-record streak of retiring 37 consecutive batters Tuesday after Danny Valencia tripled.
Week three in the NFL this Sunday. The Patriots host the Buccaneers. They are 2-0 for the season so far, but both wins were narrow.
And questions are swirling around whether tight end Rob Gronkowski will come back into the game. He has missed the first two games of the season while he recovers from surgeries on his back and forearm. Several reports say there’s a chance he could play Sunday.
