Red Sox lost to Baltimore, 7 to 5.
Warriors beat the Cavs, 113 to 91 (video highlights here).
The morning quote:
“You know, I really hate the Orioles.”
—Timmy, the youngest of the WESR interns, echoing just about everyone in the Boston area’s feelings, after watching Baltimore take a 7-1 lead over the Red Sox in the sixth inning.
The morning quote, II:
“I don’t know if I can tell you. I just threw a pitch and my foot got in a bad position and I went down. But nothing crazy. I just landed a bit different and that’s it.”
—Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez, on his strange tumble in the bullpen during pregame warmups (video here). He gave up seven runs in 5 2/3 innings and his delivery never looked quite right all night, as Lou Merloni tweeted.
The morning quote, III
“@stephencurry30 good time to dust these off! @kingjames you got a headband for me?? Good luck champs! #nbafinals #trilogy”
—Tom Brady on Instagram, posting a photo of a Steph Curry shoe by Under Armour, before the varsity season of the NBA finally began last night with Game 1 of the Finals. Way to pick a side, Tom.
ESPN may not have any on-air talent left…
In wake of all of their layoffs (so long, John Clayton). But they do have computers, which have calculated power ratings for every NFL team. The Patriots, are at 92 percent odds of winning the division, 50.7 percent of making the Super Bowl, and 34.7 percent of winning the big game.
What you need to know about last night’s Red Sox game:
Eduardo had only allowed one home run in his first six career starts at Camden Yards, but gave up four dingers in last night’s loss to Baltimore. The Red sox were trailing 7-1 in the ninth until Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a three-run home run in the ninth, to shrink the deficit.
Everyone’s favorite center fielder collected two of his team’s nine hits last night, and slammed his seventh home run of the season, raising his average to .226. Sam Travis and Christian Vazquez also had two-hit games.

The trailer for the two-part “30 for 30” on the 1980s Celtics-Lakers rivalry, here it is. It’s called “Best of Enemies” and airs on ESPN June 13.
Another Tiger Woods police video was released last night.
This one of him struggling to take a breathalyzer test in jail, while handcuffed. How he was able to walk out his front door to his car is a mystery.
That’s the date of the Bruins’ first preseason game. (It’s a Monday.) Mark your calendars.
