SEATTLE — The Boston Red Sox kept Seattle ace Felix Hernandez to his shortest outing in more than a month Saturday night, when they handed him his first loss of the season by way of a 4-2 victory over the Mariners. Hernandez (6-1) allowed four earned runs, two of which came on solo homers, over six innings. Boston (18-19) took advantage of Hernandez’s control problems after the injury, as the Red Sox drew three walks and got an RBI double from catcher Blake Swihart on the way to a 4-2 lead in the sixth. Red Sox third baseman Pedro Sandoval and designated hitter David Ortiz each had solo homers off Hernandez, while Seattle designated hitter Brad Miller hit a pair of home runs for the Mariners (16-20). Boston starter Rick Porcello (4-2) was... Hernandez seemed to settle down from the two solo homers as the game headed into the sixth inning with the score tied at 2. On his fourth pitch of that frame, Hernandez appeared to catch the cleats of his left shoe in a divot on the pitching mound... Another walk, issued to No. 9 hitter Jackie Bradley Jr. , loaded the bases before Brock Holt drove in a run with an RBI groundout to first base for a 4-2 Red Sox lead.
WESTBROOK — The purple reign continued Friday night at the North Southwestern swimming and diving championships, as the boys of Cheverus High won their third straight title. As was the case with his older siblings, Westbrook senior Greg Violette won the meet’s top individual award, four years after his sister, Kathryn, and eight after his brother, Matt. “It feels great to finish the last Southwesterns with a bang,” Violette said after winning the 100-yard backstroke and 100 freestyle. “This is the best high school meet all year long, even more so than states. Eight Greater Portland schools gathered inside Davan Pool for the traditional end to the regular season, the last chance for borderline swimmers to qualify for state championship meets. “The building gets so loud, it not only makes you feel good, it makes everyone feel good,” Violette said. Falmouth was third at 205, followed by Scarborough (169), Greely (150), South Portland (94), Westbrook (84) and Deering (60). Falmouth senior Jake Perron erased a 14-year-old mark in the 200 freestyle. Perron edged Cheverus junior Michael O’Donovan in a nip-and-tuck race, as his winning time of 1 minute, 43. 52 seconds was just. “On almost every wall I look over at him just to see where he is. That’s really what gets in my head. He’s my inspiration to pick up my pace a little bit, kick my legs a little bit harder, even when I feel bad.
— The Green Bay Packers remain in hot pursuit of the No. 1 seed for the NFC playoffs. Making his 100th career start, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 24 of 36 passes for 327 yards and three touchdowns. Led by quarterback Matt Ryan and receiver Julio Jones, whose 259 receiving yards were the most ever against the Packers, the Falcons chipped away at a 24-point deficit to pull within 10 points early in the fourth quarter. The Packers briefly restored order on Rodgers’ 60-yard touchdown pass to receiver Jordy Nelson. The Falcons responded, with Ryan hitting Jones three times to set up a 1-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Roddy White. Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin recovered the onside kick, and Mason Crosby tacked on a 53-yard field goal to extend the advantage to 43-30.
