Cards' Wainwright has HR, 4 RBIs in first win of season

Ryan Braun's throw beat Wong to the plate, which would have given Peralta an inning-ending double play, but a review revealed that catcher Manny Pina never applied a tag to Wong.

The 49ers Should Select Cornerback Sidney Jones in the NFL Draft

That's a virtual lock. She also discussed what the Bears could do with their high first round pick with Jarrett Payton and Josh Frydman.

And the United boss believes the victory proves his team would have beaten Chelsea in last month's FA Cup quarter-final tie, had Herrera not received a controversial red card in that match at Stamford Bridge.

Rose, Garcia tied for lead at Masters in prelude to finale

Garcia nudged out England's Justin Rose, who also finished on nine under par at the end of the fourth round on Sunday in Augusta , Georgia. With 2013 US Open champion Rose and two of the best players in golf not to have won a major yet in Garcia and Fowler, as well as Spieth, whose first three Masters finishes have been second, first, second, there is plenty of quality at the top of the leaderboard and bubbling under.

Fans react as Everton sensation Tom Davies is snubbed for PFA nomination

Although he has been nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year, the same he won in 2016, he has been overlooked for the senior prize. Tottenham's Dele Alli must be considered a warm favourite to retain the PFA Young Player of the Year Award.

Cleveland Cavaliers beaten by Miami without LeBron James and Kyrie Irving

To some, at least. "We didn't have a clue", Richardson said after playing all 17 minutes of the fourth quarter and overtime, a stretch in which the Heat (40-41) outscored the Cavaliers by 13 points to escape with the win. Of course, it should be noted that Sanders hasn't played professional basketball since 2015. Miami finishes by hosting Cleveland and Washington - two of the top four teams in the conference.

Mumbai too good as Warner's Sunrisers flop

Vary of the statistics; MI Captain Rohit Sharma will be hungry for redemption - what a fitting script it would turn out if in front of their home crowd at Wankhede.

Ailing Josh Donaldson not starting in Blue Jays' home opener

And yes, they've won only once, their 1-5 record tied for worst in the majors after the season's first week.

Maple Leafs beat Penguins to clinch final playoff spot

A main reason behind the Blue Jackets three goal outburst was the fact Toronto lost two defencemen in the second period and were forced to play with only four defencemen for most of the second and third period. Even the most optimistic Leafs fan couldn't have predicted they'd be in the playoffs at the start of the season. He batted a puck out of the air near the blue line, tracked it, maneuvered around Justin Schultz and beat Marc-Andre Fleury from the slot.

Reds recap: Cincinnati tops St. Louis, 8-0

Wichita State accepted an invitation Friday to join the American Athletic Conference, ending a relationship with the Missouri Valley Conference that dated back almost a half-century.

NFL's Raiders: Las Vegas - 1; Oakland - 0

Also, some are curious if Oakland has any authority to terminate the lease agreement early, not even giving Davis and the team two seasons.

Sol Campbell: 'Arsenal can not allow Alexis Sanchez to leave'

Wenger made similar comments before he sanctioned the sale of Robin van Persie to Manchester United in 2012 and it is inconceivable that Arsenal will not cash in on Sanchez this summer if he confirms he will not sign a new contract with the north London club.

Cowboys QB Tony Romo is reportedly retiring

It has always been accepted that Romo would become a network analyst once his playing days were over. Adam Schefter reported that the Dallas Cowboys quarterback will get that release he's wanted Tuesday.
