The Shield's retort to Triple H's accusations and the return of Evolution.. what is in store for WWE champion Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, and the rest of the RAW roster?

*Justin Gabriel preserves the European title over Roderick Strong, who has not been in action for a few months. He showed some style with a moonsault through the announce table and a dragon suplex for the finish.

*The Usos hit a career benchmark with their first WWE Tag Team championship win, in a barnburner against the Motor City Machineguns.

*William Regal is on the chase for Gabriel's gold. The Blackpool veteran roughed up Nigel McGuinness and British Bulldog to get the chance.

*Cody Rhodes defended the IC belt on a second occasion, this time against Bobby Roode. The ending was a blocked suplex into a Cross Rhodes. He has done well without brother Goldust at his side.

*Bray Wyatt made an emphatic return to the WWE, sending R-Truth into the mat with a Sister Abigail. We will probably hear of his intentions or his target shortly.




*The Shield had decided to go on separate paths, but since COO Triple H called them out, they will make an exception. According to the Game, they had not done what he paid them for and they were not nearly effective enough at eliminating Daniel Bryan. Ambrose, Rollins, and Reigns were offended by that assumption. They maintained that every night for over a year they obliterated the WWE's top stars. At the right time, they broke out of being Hunter's puppets and went back to their true objective: rectify injustice. Unfortunately, the three lost the picture and got greedy.

They weren't about to let Triple H reform one of the more dominant factions in history and take control of the show. Never under their watch would some other team claim to be as powerful as the Shield. The challenge was out: Shield vs Evolution, Extreme Rules.

*HHH would not address the Shield's challenge just yet but he did book the three versus Wade Barrett, Sheamus, and Kane. If Evolution's members were victorious, they would receive title shots at the tag and Intercontinental champions, respectively. He will consider an Extreme Rules battle if the Shield impress him. To end the 12-minute brawl, Reigns took out Barrett with a Superman punch and spear.

*The challenger to Bryan's WWE title is still undecided. Ziggler is vying for it, but Alberto Del Rio and Randy Orton presumably have a more favorable position in the race considering their roles in Evolution. The tag match main event resumed feuds between ADR/Ziggler and Bryan/Orton that raged throughout this year. While Triple H is bothered by the sudden Shield revival, he continues to have his eye on Bryan and the championship situation.

DBry and Dolph stood tall by the conclusion. The leader of the YES! Movement connected on a running knee to Orton while the Showoff knocked Del Rio off the apron. For the second straight week, the Big Red Monster made his presence felt, grabbing Bryan from behind and clotheslining him to close the episode.

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)

TORONTO, ON - Baseball is a fickle game. One week you can't hit to save your life, and the next you seem to hit when you aren't even trying. After months of failing to catch a break the Red Sox have caught on fire, going 10-2 this month. The Red Sox came into the game today with a half game lead in the AL East, and a win would give them the other half. The Blue Jays, starting former Red Sox pitcher Jake Peavy, are officially headed in the wrong direction. If anyone needed to win tonight it was Toronto, but Chris Archer wasn't going to lay down.

Archer and Peavy exchanged shutout innings to start the game, but Boston opened the scoring in the 2nd with two HR. Will Middlebrooks started things off with a solo-HR and Blake Swihart made it 3-0 with a 2R-HR after a David Ortiz double. The Blue Jays came right back in the 3rd with an RBI double by Edwin Encarnacion, thanks to Jackie Bradley Jr. missing a fly ball, and then Jose Bautista drove in Encarnacion to make it 3-2.

The Red Sox were not impressed and hammered Peavy in the 4th. Ortiz slammed a 2R-HR followed by Bradley Jr. hitting an RBI double with two on. Boston kept the hits coming when Swihart smacked a solo-HR in the 6th, and a Bradley Jr. triple paired with a Xander Bogaerts single made it 8-2.



All-Star snub Swihart is having an incredible rookie season.

While the Red Sox were finally hitting Archer was putting on a show of his own. Despite allowing 2R, he only allowed a single BB and practically struck out two batters an inning. Swihart added to his amazing day with a 2RBI double in the 7th, giving Archer a 10-2 lead. Archer stayed in for the 8th and used it to make history by striking out 21 Blue Jays. Archer becomes the first to strike out 21 in a 9 inning game, tying Tom Cheney (1962) who did it in 16 innings.

Torii Hunter added to Toronto's misery with a solo-HR in the 9th, but the Blue Jays wouldn't be shut out. Another former Red Sox player, David Ross, would put the Blue Jays on the board with and RBI double thanks to another Bradley Jr. mistake. Whent he dust cleared Swihart finished 5/5 with 2HR and 5RBI.

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)

BOSTON, MA - Things are going well for the Red Sox in August, already 5-2 so far and a series against the middling White Sox coming up. Chris Archer, after a rough outing against Baltimore, would face Marco Gonzalez and try to turn his season around.

Boston started off on the right foot with a 2R-HR from Mike Napoli with Dustin Pedroia on base to start the 1st with a 2-0 lead. Archer cruised and things got even better in the third when Napoli, Will Middlebrooks, and David Ortiz combined for stunning back-to-back-to-back solo-HRs and a 5-0 lead.

Archer, clearly over the outing against the Orioles, blew right through the White Sox lineup. Archer shut out Chicago, a Napoli sac fly in the 7th and a Blake Swihart solo-HR in the 8th gave him a 7-0 lead to basically seal the game. Chicago rallied to score a run off Ranaudo in the 9th, a Ben Coats RBI that drove in Dayan Viciedo, but it was much too little too late.



Napoli's 2HR 4RBI day powered Boston to a victory.

Boston's offense seems to be coming around, with 14 hits and 5HR today. Hopefully this trend holds and they can pass Tampa Bay for the division lead.

Triple H sustains power on Raw, but it seems as though things are calm and in order on Smackdown. As C.M. Punk starts his reign as World Heavyweight champion, it remains to be seen whether things will stay that way. Damien Sandow, Mr. Money in the Bank, waits in the wings.

*The Miz retained the Cruiserweight championship over Fandango via a cradle DDT on the outside. Him and his moneymaker have plenty to brag about at the moment.

*NXT star Leo Kruger made his debut, in a competitive affair with Evan Bourne. He took it with a snapmare driver for his first win.

*Magnus is the new #1 contender to Seth Rollins' United States title after defeating Big E Langston and Drew McIntyre in a triple threat.

*The Duke of Decency Damien Sandow overcame former WHC AJ Styles.

*Seth Rollins kept his US championship away from Jack Swagger in addition to Evolution's Wade Barrett and Sheamus.

*After being triumphant at Wrestlemania, Antonio Cesaro declared himself to be the new American Dream and our nation's next hero. Apparently he was in hot demand after leaving Zeb Colter's stable. Paul Heyman offered his services and thus Cesaro is the newest Paul Heyman Guy. Heyman will go into detail on his fresh client on Wednesday Night Heat.

*The Swiss Superman seizes the #1 contendership spot to the Big Gold in the 6th match of the evening. He defeats some of the blue brand's top talents in Sting, Sami Zayn, Ryback, Kurt Angle, and Samoa Joe. It is unknown whether that match with C.M. Punk will be coming at Extreme Rules or next Friday.

*Punk faced off with Shawn Michaels in HBK's Smackdown return, but the title was not on the line. It was an ambitious effort from the Heartbreak Kid but the World Heavyweight Champion is on his A-game right now. He got the best of Michaels and Sandow teased a cash in but Punk avoided it for now.

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)

BALTIMORE, MD - The AL East race continues to be tight with Boston traveling to Baltimore today. The Rays continue to sit atop the division, but the race is starting to be about more than just the division. The Wild Card is starting to shape up and the AL East is just outside of sending multiple teams to the playoffs. In the NL the Dodgers have asserted themselves and hold baseball's best record (70-38) with the Diamondbacks (66-43) just behind them.

With the Orioles in danger of fading out of the race, this game would be important for them. With Archer and Weaver facing off again, everyone expected this game to be exciting, but nobody would believe how exciting. Boston struck right away, putting together a Jackie Bradley Jr. double with a Xander Bogaerts single to take a 1-0 lead after the 1st.

The second inning would give everyone a taste of what was coming, but Baltimore fans would have to wait. Shane Victorino hit a double and David Ortiz brought him in with a 2R-HR to take a 3-0 lead. Even with Archer on the mound, the Orioles came right back with a little help from Boston. Archer promptly loaded the bases and gave up a 2RBI double, and then Will Middlebrooks fielded a weak grounder from Adam Jones and seemed to forget the game was still going. The Orioles scored thanks to Middlebrooks and made it 3-3.

Archer and Weaver slogged through the 3rd before more fireworks in the 4th. Victorino gave Boston the lead with a solo-HR, but Chris Davis pulled Baltimore ahead with a stunning 3R-HR that left Archer visibly upset. Archer finished the inning, but after 7H and 6ER his day was done in favor of Anthony Ranaudo. Weaver probably wished he had taken a seat as well, but he came out for the 5th and got lit up like a Christmas tree. Bogaerts and Bradley teamed up at the top of the order with an RBI single to make it 6-4, and then a Pedroia single scored Bogaerts on a hit-and-run play to make it 6-5. Weaver put another man on before Middlebrooks drove in Pedroia, and with the game tied and only two out Weaver was pulled for Keven Slowey. Slowey, if you can believe it, was much worse. Ortiz gave Boston the lead with a towering 3R-HR, and Blake Swihart capped off a 7 run inning with a solo-HR for an 11-6 lead.



Ortiz isn't ready to retire just yet.

Ranaudo pitched well, shutting out Baltimore until the 7th when Nolan Reimold drove in a runner. The Orioles looked to score another but JJ Hardy was thrown out at home to end the inning. The 8th inning was basically the final nail in Baltimore's coffin. Bradley would drive in Mookie Betts after a 2B-SB combo would let him score easily from third, and then Bradley would make it to third himself after a throwing error on a pick-off attempt.

With the score 12-7 n the 9th the Orioles would tag one more on, but it was clearly too little too late. When the dust had settled the game would total 20 runs and 29 hits, almost unthinkable with the way the Red Sox had been hitting and pitching.

M's keep streak alive with shutout victory

Seattle - Even with the bats somewhat cooled off, the Mariners still found a way to put another win in the column against the Texas Rangers. Hisashi Iwakuma went 6.1 innings, and the bullpen did the rest as the Mariners got the shutout win. Brad Miller and Robinson Cano were the only offense Seattle needed in this one as Cano got the night started with a solo home run in the first inning. He had another hit in the game as well pushing his average up above .200 and hopefully turning the corner in what has been a rocky start to his Mariner career. The win puts the Mariners back above .500 and the disastrous month of May seems more, and more like a distant memory. The Mariners will see how far they can keep the streak going tomorrow as they go for nine straight against Texas ace Colby Lewis (7-3, 3.26 ERA), while throwing Chris Young (4-5, 3.82 ERA) up against him.

Felix dominates as Mariners roll to seventh straight victory

Seattle - Felix Hernandez continued the Mariners hot streak by bringing the fire himself on Thursday night. He matched his season high by striking out 14 hitters, with his lone blemish a two out home run by Carlos Beltran in the 8th, and after that the bullpen finished it off to sweep the Yankees right out the door of Safeco Field. The Mariners offense got it going too with six extra base hits, and really the score should've been worse, but Sabathia, and crew were able to wriggle out of danger a few times. Still it was no match for the performance that the King put in, in front of his loyal subjects out in the Kings court. The Mariners will now look to climb above .500 for the first time since they were 13-12 on April 28th, as they welcome the Texas Rangers to town, who will throw Tanner Scheppers (2-5, 6.59 ERA) to the wolves that has been the Mariners lineup recently, while Seattle counters with Hisashi Iwakuma (4-5, 3.59 ERA).

Comeback kids do it again as Mariners end up cruising to sixth straight victory

Seattle - In what has become a theme during this winning streak, the Mariners again were able to come back late and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. This time they did it without the power surge they have enjoyed in previous games, and instead used timely, clutch hitting, and good plate discipline to their advantage. It started in the 8th inning, after David Phelps had been cruising all night long, building a 4-1 lead without barely breaking a sweat giving up only two hits, but Jesus Montero led off with a single, and that brought out Matt Thornton, who pretty much imploded the proceedings by immediately hitting John Buck, who replaced an injured Mike Zunino earlier in the game. The a James Jones sacrifice attempt turned into a single after he beat out the throw, and that's when it turned real sour for New York. Stefen Romero came on to pinch hit for Dustin Ackley, and immediately laced a single to cut it to 4-2, then Thornton walked Brad Miller to force in another run, and shortly after Endy Chavez lined a two run double to put the Mariners in the lead. Seattle would end up getting two more out of the inning before it was over, lining up Fernando Rodney for an easy save in the ninth. The Mariners will now try to continue the streak tomorrow, and get back to .500 for the first time since April 29th against C.C. Sabathia (6-4, 5.25 ERA) while throwing their own ace Felix Hernandez (6-6, 2.59 ERA) up against him.

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)


Player (Prospect Grade - John Sickels, Current Level)

3B, Garin Cecchini (Grade : B+, AAA Pawtucket)

Not much news here, hitting has ticked up a bit to .256. 14HR and 26SB, made the MiLB All-Star team.

SS, Chris Owings (Grade : B+, AAA Pawtucket)

Similar to Cecchini, continues steady climb toward the majors. Hitting .275 with 8HR and 11SB, made the MiLB All-Star team.

RHP, Leonys Bravo (Grade : B+, AAA Pawtucket)


Looks like the Red Sox may have to pump the brakes on Bravo as he finally struggles. 1-2 mark with a 6.28ERA is quite a jump, though the organization still believes in him these are the first signs of mortality. With a 22K:6BB ratio in 14.1IP nobody is writing him off, but he will need to work on his secondary pitches instead of breezing by on his fastball-change up combo.

RHP, Braden Shipley (Grade : B+, MLB)

LHP, Henry Owens (Grade : B+, AAA Pawtucket)

Owens has been hot in the past month with a 5-0 record in July to bring his season up to 9-6. Dropped his ERA and WHIP down to 2.79 and 1.19, starting to look more and more like he starts 2016 in the majors.

LHP, Trey Ball (Grade : B, AAA Pawtucket)

Still getting beat up, but the stuff is still great and probably won't be demoted. Still needs to work on his command, but Boston is very committed to his future.

RHP, Braxton Davis (Grade : B-, AAA Pawtucket)

Going toe-to-toe with Owens with very similar numbers. 8-5, 2.75ERA, 119WHIP, 121K:52BB.

1B, Issac Koufax (Grade : B-, AAA Pawtucket)

AAA has been a little harder for the fast rising 1B, hitting only .268 with a single HR in July. Small sample size, but starting to look mortal at the plate.

RHP, Allen Webster (Grade : C+, AAA Pawtucket)

Still dragging his feet, rumors are that Boston have been discussing trade options for the off-season.

3B/OF, Rico Berroa (Grade : C+, AAA Pawtucket)

Hitting .364 with 4SB since coming up, nobody is jumping to conclusions yet on his hitting, but defense still remains his strength.

SS, Pedro Santana (Grade : C+, AA Portland)


Hitting .299 with 3HR and 13SB, won't be in AA past this season with Owings / Cecchini expected to be promoted. Ceiling is most likely a .270 hitter with 30SB and Gold Glove caliber defense.

Players Making Noise

RHP, Roddy Gibson (Grade : C+, AA Portland)


A stop in Portland might have been aiming too low, if AAA rotation wasn't full the Red Sox probably should have moved him there. 3-1 record in July with a 1.86ERA and a Bravo-esque 26K:6BB ratio in 29IP.

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)

SEATTLE, WA - It's deja vu all over again as Chris Archer took the mound today against the Mariners again, this time it's at SafeCo Field. Felix Hernandez would get his shot at revenge, and with Boston still struggling to hit he would probably get his way. At this point in the season Boston probably isn't "struggling" or "cold", the team is going to have to accept that they just aren't good on offense this year.

Things were looking up for the Red Sox when a Xander Bogaerts sac fly in the 3rd gave them a 1-0. Most teams wouldn't lean on a single run lead, but Archer was absolutely on fire today no hitting the Mariners through the 3rd. Hernandez struggled with his command, and thanks to his inability to get ahead in the count he couldn't get out of the 6th. Shane Victorino and David Ortiz each hit solo-HR off Hernandez, both on 3-1 counts, and Hernandez took a seat after 5.2IP.

Boston was practically high-fiving themselves up 3-0, especially with Archer carrying a no-hitter through the 6th. Unfortunately for Boston, the BB Monster reared it ugly head and Archer put two on in the 7th with Carlos Quentin coming up. Archer had him on a 2-2 count and tried to sneak a fastball high and inside, but Quentin was waiting for it and parking the ball in the stands for a 3R-HR that tied the game.



Quetin's three-run shot killed Boston.

Archer came back out for the 8th, hoping to staunch the bleeding and give Boston a shot at scoring, but things only got worse. Archer walked two more, bringing his total to 4, and Robinson Cano hit an RBI single to give Seattle the lead. Jackie Bradley Jr. capped of the horrible inning by blowing a "can of corn" pop fly that would have ended the inning but instead became a 2RBI triple for Corey Hart. Boston had nothing and Seattle cruised to an easy 6-3 victory.

Mariners comeback to walk-off in 9th. Win 5th straight.

Seattle - The Seattle Mariners are suddenly the hottest team in baseball. Coming back from deficits twice in this one to finish off the Yankees, and win their 5th straight. The Yankees jumped out early with a three run 1st inning, but after that Taijuan Walker shut them down the rest of the way going eight strong. Meanwhile the Mariners clawed back with home runs by Mike Zunino, and Jesus Montero. However in the 9th inning Alfonso Soriano hit his second home run of the game that looked to doom the Mariners streak, but they would not be denied as Robinson Cano led off the bottom half with a double. After Montero struck out Kyle Seager came up and ripped one over the head of Carlos Beltran for another double that tied the game. Then with two outs Zunino came up with a huge clutch hit the Mariners have been lacking this season. He shot another one into the gap that sealed the deal on the comeback. The Mariners will try to see how far this streak can go tomorrow as they return to face David Phelps (6-2, 3.04 ERA), who is having a great season for the Yankees. They will counter with James Paxton (3-3, 3.59 ERA).

Mariners power surge completes sweep

St. Petersburg - The Mariners clubbed five home runs on Monday afternoon, including two from Robinson Cano, as they completed a four game sweep of the AL East leading Rays. Stefen Romero, Mike Zunino, and Jesus Montero also got in on the fun, as the Mariners hit their season high for dingers in this one. The Rays had a couple solo shots of their own early as it looked early on that they may avoid the sweep in front of their home town fans, but Chris Young was able to keep them at bay long enough for the bats to do their damage, and Lucas Luetge, and Charlie Furbush were able to combine for four scoreless innings out of the pen to make the lead hold up. The Mariners now hop on a plane headed all the way home to get right back after it tomorrow against the New York Yankees who will send Taijuan Walker (4-6, 3.95 ERA) to the mound to face former Mariner Michael Pineda (5-5, 4.73 ERA).
