BOSTON (AP) — The Red Sox held onto Mike Napoli at the trading deadline, and he responded a few hours later with a two-run homer off the top of the Green Monster that led Boston over the Tampa Bay Rays 7-5 on Friday night.

The Red Sox had already blown two leads when David Ortiz drew a two-out walk in the seventh inning and Napoli turned a one-run deficit into a 6-5 lead with a drive that landed on the ledge atop the 37-foot-high wall. The 33-year-old first baseman had...

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Domonic Brown hit a two-run homer and Ryan Howard drove in four runs, helping David Buchanan and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Atlanta Braves 9-3 Friday night.

The resurgent and rebuilding Phillies won for the 11th time in 13 games since the All-Star break on a day they finalized a trade that sent 2008 World Series MVP Cole Hamels to Texas. Philadelphia also dealt Ben Revere to Toronto before the non-waiver trade deadline. Earlier in the week,...
