Manager Buck Showalter: "Sports is supposed to be ahead of the other parts of society because you have to know each other, have to work toward that goal, every day, all day.

This month A.J. Burnett is 5-0 with a 1.82 ERA. It’s the 2nd time in his career he went 5-0 in a month (also June of 2012 with Pittsburgh).

Xander Bogaerts day to day

The Red Sox SS was hit just above the left wrist Thursday, but X-rays were negative. Bogaerts is dealing with a bruise and is day to day. "Hopefully he'll be ready to go tomorrow," manager John Farrell said after the game.

OTD: Henderson swipes No. 893

On this date in 1990, Rickey Henderson broke Ty Cobb's 62-year-old AL record for stolen bases, snapping the record in under 12 seasons. Henderson finished his career with 1,406 stolen bases ... 468 more than the man in second, Lou Brock.
