Patriots coach Bill Belichick: ‘It’s good to have all the players’ at minicamp

eagles_080Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski are back, and New England fans couldn’t be more thrilled.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick, on the other hand, could be.

When asked how it felt to have his star quarterback and tight end on the field for minicamp on Tuesday, the Patriots coach wouldn’t single them out.

The Tigers failed to take advantage of a two-out baserunning mistake by Jose Ramirez, and Kipnis hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer two pitches later to lift the Indians over the Tigers 4-1.

Ramirez almost broke the tie himself, hitting Shane Greene’s 3-1 pitch just past the foul pole down the right-field line, but ended up drawing a walk. Yonder Alonso hit a two-out single into the right-center field gap, and Ramirez stumbled as he took a wide turn around third.

The Giants will wrap up OTAs this week before holding mandatory minicamp June 12-14.

Orioles RHP Kevin Gausman (3-5, 4.63) faces Blue Jays RHP Aaron Sanchez (3-5, 4.48) on Saturday. Gausman in winless in four starts, while Sanchez beat Detroit to pick up his first win since April in his previous outing.Choi’s pinch-hit grand slam lifts Brewers over Phillies

PHILADELPHIA Ji-Man Choi casually jogged to first. The jubilation in the Brewers’ dugout indicated otherwise.

Choi and came through with a go-ahead grand slam when he pinch hit in the sixth inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 12-3 on Saturday.

I thought it was a fly ball, Choi said through a translator. I’m just really happy I was able to get this hit.
