The Red Sox scored runs in every inning except the seventh en route to a 10-1 victory over the A’s on Wednesday night. Boston goes for a three-game sweep of Oakland this afternoon (1:35 pm) at Fenway Park.

Also on Wednesday, the Revolution tied Orlando City 1-1. New England will host Minnesota United on Sunday at 5 p.m.

Tonight at 9 pm, the Celtics take on the Warriors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals at TD Garden. Boston, trailing 3-2 in the series, needs to win to force a Game 7 (which would happen on Sunday in San Francisco).

Julian Edelman on a possible comeback: Since announcing his retirement in April 2021, Julian Edelman has repeatedly denied any speculation about a possible return (April Fools jokes aside).

Recently, however, Edelman offered a slightly different answer.

“I don’t know, we’ll see,” Edelman said at the Sunset Sports Media Festival in Zadar, Croatia, in response to a question about a possible return to play alongside Tom Brady.

“That’s called a little teaser,” Edelman added. “We’ll see. We stay in shape, but you never know. But I’d probably go back to the Patriots. I love the Patriots. Foxborough forever.”

Edelman and Brady worked out together in early 2022, which Brady showed off in a video clip he tweeted in May.

Originally selected in the seventh round of the 2009 draft, Edelman earned his spot on the Patriots’ roster by playing on special teams and defending at various points. He eventually became Brady’s favorite target and ranks fourth in all-time Patriots history for receiving yards.

Trivia: Can you name the three players who top Edelman on the Patriots’ all-time receiving yards list?
