The past couple days in Boston sports have been hectic, so here’s a full recap of both Friday and Saturday’s action:
Patriots draft seven players in rounds 2-7 of the NFL Draft:
The Patriots drafted seven players from rounds 2-7 of the NFL draft Friday and Saturday, after drafting Mac Jones on night one of the draft.
They drafted Alabama DT Christian Barmore, Oklahoma DE Ronnie Perkins, Oklahoma RB Rhamondre Stevenson, Michigan LB Cameron McGrone, LSU DB Joshua Bledsoe, Colorado OT William Sherman, and ended on UCF WR Tre Nixon.
Celtics pull off historic comeback against Spurs, win in OT thriller (Friday):
The Celtics went into the locker room down 77-48, but that wouldn’t stop the Celtics.
The Celtics would outscore the Spurs 80-51 in the second half in order to send the game to overtime, and the Celtics would be able to secure the win in overtime.
Jayson Tatum would drop 60, and the Celtics would pull off a comeback to remember. The C’s move to 34-30.
Eovaldi goes six, allowing just one; Red Sox get 6-1 win over Rangers (Friday):
Nathan Eovaldi shined in his outing Friday, allowing just a run on four hits in six innings, fanning five.
JD Martinez had a monstrous night, going 3-for-4 with four RBI’s, as the Red Sox would pile on four runs in the first inning en route to the 6-1 win. Xander Bogaerts and Rafael Devers would homer, as well as Martinez who homered twice in the win.
Eovaldi continues his strong start to his campaign. The righty has posted a 3.63 ERA in six starts this season.
E-Rod struggles; Red Sox’ six runs not enough in 8-6 loss to Rangers (Saturday):
Saturday was not Rodriguez’ night. The lefty went five innings allowing four runs off eight hits, striking out five.
Andriese was also not his best, as in the sixth inning he allowed a two-run big fly, as well as an RBI single to make it three earned runs allowed in his one inning of work.
Hunter Renfroe homered, Xander Bogaerts and JD Martinez would all have RBI hits, and Christian Vazquez and Bobby Dalbec tagged along RBI’s for the Red Sox six runs.
Both Andriese and Rodriguez struggled mightily, and were not there usual selves. The Red Sox take on the Rangers Sunday to try and even out the series in the finale. Garrett Richards has the nod.
Craig Smith notches hat-trick in Bruins 6-2 win over Sabres (Saturday):
Craig Smith would net a hat-trick Saturday, as the Bruins picked up the 6-2 win over the Sabres.
Patrice Bergeron, Nick Ritchie, and Sean Kuraly all notched goals Saturday as well. The Bruins scored four straight goals after Buffalo tied it at one in the first period.
Kuraly’s goal was his first in 31 games, as he scored on a rebound that was shot by Nick Ritche to make it 2-1 in the first.
The Bruins move to 30-14-6 on the season, and they sit at 66 points. They’re just a point behind the third place Islanders, and eight ahead of the Rangers.
Revolution stay undefeated in 2-1 win over Atlanta United (Saturday):
The Revolution grabbed the 2-1 win over Atlanta United, thanks to Carles Gil’s performance, where he potted a goal, along with an assist.
Brandon Bye opened the scoring with a goal in the 19th minute for his first of the season, which was assisted by Gil. Atlanta later scored on a penalty kick in the 41st minute, but the Revs would answer right back with a goal of their own from Carles Gil.
The Revolution sit at 2-0-1, atop the East with sole possession of first place.
BC’s Hunter Long and Isaiah McDuffie drafted (Friday and Saturday):
Boston College Football’s TE Hunter along and LB Isaiah McDuffie were drafted.
Long went 81st overall to the Dolphins, and McDuffie went 220th overall to the Packers.
