BOSTON (AP) - Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick says the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings is in serious but stable condition and likely can't communicate yet.

Patrick spoke outside Fenway Park after appearing in a pregame ceremony at Saturday afternoon's Red Sox game.

Two bombs exploded at the finish line of Monday's Boston Marathon, killing three people. A Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer was killed during Thursday night's manhunt. More than 180 people were injured in the explosions.

Suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed Friday. His brother, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was captured later Friday inside a boat parked in a Watertown backyard after a furious search. He is recovering at a Boston hospital guarded by armed officers.

Patrick says he thinks the suspect is "not able to communicate yet."
