Tuesday night, the Mariners had a dramatic win over the Red Sox — with Robinson Cano scoring a three-run homer off new Red Sox pitcher Fernando Abad.

The Patriots are into their training camp now and all eyes are on quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. He will play the first four games of the season as Tom Brady fulfills his suspension. Brady is banned from engaging "in any team football-related activities or discussions with teammates, even if away from the club facility.”

Finally, the US women's soccer team plays New Zealand Wednesday night at the Olympics — before the opening ceremonies.  Bill tells us the US teams to watch out for in the 2016 Olympic games.
