Blue Jays hammer Paxton in 14-4 rout that puts big dent in Mariners’ postseason hopes

TORONTO — James Paxton’s first game in his native Canada in more than seven years turned into a epic fiasco Monday night that pushed the Mariners’ postseason aspirations to the brink. Paxton gave up four runs in the first inning and five more in a third inning he failed to complete in turned into a 14-4 carpet bombing by the Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre. It was, if anything, worse than it sounds. Paxton (6-4) had not allowed more than three earned runs in any of his previous 15 big-league starts. The Jays got that on one swing in … Read more »

Indians shut out in Monday's regularly-scheduled game to Royals 2-0, drop to 3 1/2 games behind KC

Monday marked Royals starter Danny Duffy’s first start in three weeks after being shut down with left shoulder tightness. Unfortunately for the Indians, he didn’t appear to be very rusty. The left-hander tossed six shutout innings, scattering six hits and striking out five, leading the Royals to a 2-0 win over the Tribe that gave back Kansas City the game they lost a couple hours earlier in the completion of a suspended game played before the evening’s regularly-scheduled contest. That means the teams will face off again Tuesday at Progressive Field with the visiting Royals...

Ainge says trading Rondo

Ainge says trading Rondo "not out of the question"

Ainge spoke about the Celtics upcoming season, and about the All-Star point guard that's currently still on the roster. Ainge does his best way to save face on this one. He basically puts the ball in Rondo's court by saying we would love him here, but he's a free agent, so if we trade him, it's because he didn't want to stay. Ainge can spin anything his way. That's how I took the quote. ESPN BostonBoston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Sunday that the possibility of trading point guard Rajon Rondo is "not out of the question" given his impending free-agent status...

Gerald McCoy back at practice, Mason Foster still out

Gerald McCoy is back at practice -- and that's where the good news ends. Injury updates! The Tampa Bay Buccaneers got back to practicing today, after the debacle that was Thursday Night Football against the Atlanta Falcons. So, good news: Gerald McCoy was back at practice. Bad news: defensive ends William Gholston and Michael Johnson were out, as was Mason Foster. All of that per Roy Cummings. Johnson was technically active against the Falcons, but only played six snaps. Gholston may have suffered a setback as he did play a decent amount on Thursday, while Foster is still dealing with a...

Bears rookie DT Will Sutton gets off to bad start

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Rookie defensive tackle Will Sutton started in place of the concussed Jeremiah Ratliff on Monday night against the Jets. He made an impact quickly, the wrong way: On the first play from scrimmage, he was flagged for unnecessary roughness after hitting Jets quarterback Geno Smith late on the sideline. Later, he and fellow rookie Ego Ferguson teamed up to sack Smith. Sutton had Smith in his grasp; when he escaped, Ferguson finished him off....

The Cardinals now lead the division by 2.5 games with just five to go. This game is what happens when skill and luck meet Travis Wood. Adam Wainwright St. Louis's resident wagonmaker entered tonight's game with nineteen wins and a newly undead arm. Would he reach twenty wins for the second time in his career? Or would he fall one win short, as he did in 2009 and 2013? Only time would tell... And here's what time told: Twenty wins! (Pitcher wins don't matter.) Yay yay yay! (They're stupid and pernicious.) It's a pretty neat achievement, so congrats to Waino. (Harrumph.) Here was his line...
