TORONTO (AP) - The Red Sox go for their sixth straight win tonight when they take the Blue Jays in Game 2 of a three game set at Toronto. David Ortiz hit the 452nd and 453rd home runs of his career, moving past Boston great Carl Yastrzemski into 36th place on the all-time list, and the Red Sox won last night's opener 14-1. Jake Peavy starts for Boston tonight. He'll face Toronto's J.A. Happ.

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) - A lawyer for Aaron Hernandez says a dispute over records the defense had sought from the New England Patriots has been resolved, though it's unclear whether the documents were turned over. The Patriots had agreed to turn over 317 pages of personnel records but objected to producing scouting reports and a psychological assessment.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - The Patriots have signed rookie free agent defensive lineman Eathyn Manumaleuna (EE-thihn MAH-noo-MAY-lay-oo-nah). Manumaleuna was originally signed out of BYU by the Giants in May before being released last month. The Patriots say they have released rookie free agent defensive lineman Seali'i Epenesa.

DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - Former University of New Hampshire women's hockey coach Brian McCloskey has been charged with assault in an encounter during a game last year. The Strafford County Superior Court Clerk's office says McCloskey is charged with putting "his body on top" of a player's body and threatening her. McCloskey has said that during a loss to Ohio State last season, he grabbed the back of a player's jersey and helmet and reprimanded her for talking back. UNH fired McCloskey over it.

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A former major league pitcher says he didn't intentionally throw at batter Jose Offerman during a 2007 independent minor league game that resulted in a bat-wielding brawl. The Connecticut Post reports Matt Beech gave a video deposition that was presented to jurors yesterday in the civil trial of Offerman, who is being sued by former Bridgeport Bluefish catcher Johnathan Nathans.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The New York Jets are doing away with paper tickets for season ticket holders, while offering those fans a rewards plan for showing up regularly and behaving properly. The high-end rewards include Super Bowl tickets and a trip to a road game on the team plane. Other NFL clubs, such as the Broncos and Chiefs, already have gone to paperless access control systems.
