CHICAGO (AP) — Rookie Christopher Morel homered in his third consecutive game, and the Chicago Cubs rallied to beat the Boston Red Sox 6-5 on Friday.

The Red Sox took a 4-0 lead and looked like they were ready to roll to an easy win after going 20-6 in June.

Jarren Duran, back in the lineup for Boston after missing a three-game series at Toronto because he’s unvaccinated, drove the game’s first pitch from Adrian Sampson to the center-field bushes for a home run.

Jackie Bradley Jr. made it 4-0 with a three-run triple in the second. Rich Hill breezed through the first four innings before exiting with a sprained left knee in a three-run fifth.

The Cubs scored three more with two out in the sixth to go up 6-5, with Morel once again delivering.

The Dominican rookie, coming off a career-best five-hit game in Thursday’s romp against Cincinnati, smacked a two-run drive to left against Hansel Robles (1-3).

Willson Contreras then walked and scored on a wild pitch by Jake Diekman to Nico Hoerner, making it 6-5 and sending the Cubs to their fourth win in five games.

Five Red Sox pitchers combined to walk 10, Boston’s most since 11 at the Los Angeles Angels in a 15-inning game on Aug. 30, 2019.

Hill, who debuted with the Cubs in 2005, gave up three runs and three hits in 4 2/3 innings. He walked four and struck out three.

Hill appeared to be shaking his leg at one point in the fifth and was visited by an athletic trainer. Hill exited after hitting Patrick Wisdom to load the bases with two out.

Tyler Danish came in and walked Rafael Ortega, cutting the gap to 4-3.

Sampson gave up five runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings. Brandon Hughes (1-0) got three outs and earned his first career win, and David Robertson worked the ninth for his 10th save in 13 chances.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Red Sox: LHP Chris Sale (rib) will make at least one more minor league rehab start before the Boston Red Sox decide if their ace is ready to join their rotation after being sidelined all season. Sale struck out seven over four innings for Double-A Portland on Thursday. Cora said his mechanics were sound in his third rehab outing and he felt “physically great.” The 33-year-old left-hander is scheduled to pitch for Triple-Worcester on Wednesday.

Cubs: RHP Marcus Stroman (right shoulder inflammation) and LHP Drew Smyly (strained right oblique) threw bullpen sessions on Friday. .. OF Seiya Suzuki (sprained left ring finger) was to serve as the designated hitter for Triple-A Iowa on Friday. … 2B David Bote (left shoulder) was sore after colliding with SS Nico Hoerner in Thursday’s win over Cincinnati. … 1B Frank Schwindel (strained lower back) took 40 swings.

UP NEXT

Rookie RHP Josh Winckowski (3-1, 3.60 ERA) looks to win his fourth straight start for Boston since being recalled from Triple-A on June 15. RHP Alec Mills (0-1, 9.87) pitches for Chicago.

Miami Heats Mechanic Makes Startling Admission About His Golf Game

Getty Miami Heat center Dewayne Dedmon reacts during warmups prior to a playoff bout with the Boston Celtics.

Perhaps more than any team in the Association, the Miami Heat exemplified the “next man up” mentality during the 2021-22 season. Whether it was the teamwide COVID-19 outbreak that cropped up in December or the myriad injuries that occurred throughout the campaign, the Heat’s lineup was constantly in a state of flux.

And yet, the club managed to remain at or near the top of the Eastern Conference Standings throughout the campaign.

For his part, veteran big man Dewayne Dedmon maintained a consistent presence in Erik Spoelstra’s rotation for much of the season. However, he played a particularly big part in keeping the team afloat heading into the Christmas holiday, starting 12 straight games at the pivot.

It was during this stretch that he scored 20 points and added 12 boards, two assists, a steal and a block while knocking down a pair of three-point shots to lead Miami to a blowout win over the rival Chicago Bulls.

As talented and multi-faceted as he has shown himself to be on the hardwood, though, there are some sports where Dedmon’s skills leave something to be desired (despite his best efforts).

— Miami HEAT (@MiamiHEAT) August 12, 2022

Dedmon just celebrated his 33rd birthday on Friday and, in honor of the occasion, the team’s Twitter account dug up an insightful Q&A with the Heat center. While Dedmon touched on a variety of topics for the feature, the comments he made about his golf game were eye-catching.

When asked about his interests away from the court, Dedmon noted that he’s working to become a master of the links, saying, “I like to golf. I’m trying to get my game together. The weather is nice out here!”

Apparently, the weather is just about the only thing that’s nice when he’s out on the course. “I’m a 100 golfer. I’m still working on it. I’m pretty terrible,” Dedmon revealed.

He does have at least one thing going for him, though. Namely, good equipment. “I have custom clubs. Now I’m comfortably trash at golf,” he added.

Lowry’s Got Golf Cred

Dedmon isn’t the only Heat player known to get out on the course. When asked which of his teammates has the best golf game, he namechecked Miami’s starting point guard as the man to beat.

“Kyle [Lowry]. I mean… I’ve asked him, ‘are you good?’ He tells me he’s playing around 70-80s,” Dedmon said.

Lowry isn’t just blowing smoke, either. His high-school hoops coach and regular golf partner Dave Distal once gave a similar account of the baller’s ability. Via Andscape:

Distal said Lowry has a 14-15 handicap and can “consistently” score in the 80s or 90s. While they have been great friends for years, Distal says, golf has brought them even closer while playing in Great Britain, Scotland, the Dominican Republic, the Bahamas, Spain, and Las Vegas courses, among other places.

Earlier this month, Lowry returned to his old stomping grounds in Toronto to participate in the Nick Nurse Foundation golf tournament.
