Listen to the British commentary of Saturday's Red Sox-Yankees game in London

Listen to the British commentary of Saturday's Red Sox-Yankees game in London

The Red Sox fell to the Yankees in a wild one Saturday in London, 17-13.

Sox fans probably don't want to relive the highlights of a loss that leaves Boston 10 games behind New York in the American League East standings, but the British commentary for Game 1 of the London Series makes it worth it. Darren Fletcher had the call for BT Sport, and it was "brilliant."

"We have a tied ballgame in London, 6-6! A three-run homer from the bat of Michael Chavis. Masahiro Tanaka cannot believe it!" Amazing.

The Red Sox will look to split the London Series on Sunday with southpaw Eduardo Rodriguez on the mound. First pitch is set for 10:10 a.m. ET.

Red Sox star Mookie Betts meets distant relative Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex

Red Sox star Mookie Betts meets distant relative Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex

More than a year ago, The Boston Globe's Peter Abraham reported that Mookie Betts may be distantly related to the Meghan Markle, the American-born Duchess of Sussex, who is married to Britain's Prince Harry.

“That would be cool to meet her. I wonder if she’s a baseball fan?” Betts told Abraham at the time when he relayed the news, which came from the work of Burlington, Mass., amateur genealogist Jim McNiff.

Today in London, ahead of the Red Sox and Yankees first-ever MLB series there, Mookie met Meghan.

If not kissing cousins, at least hugging cousins now.

According to McNiff, the ancestors of Betts and Markle were from the same part of Alabama more than 150 years ago.
