The best-of-five series shifts to Los Angeles for Game 3 on Monday afternoon, with Game 4 there on Tuesday, creating an unusual three-consecutive-days setup in the playoffs, thanks to the loss of a travel day. David Ortiz , usually one of the most clutch players in postseason, has looked flat and only had one hit in the first two games. Tickets to today's game will be good for the game tomorrow.
He held again in the following game to close the gap to 4-3. The Serb made his comeback with a 6-3 6-3 demolition of Fabio Fognini , his first match in a month after failing to defend his Beijing Open title due to an elbow problem, showing intent that he is ready to renew his dominance of the ATP Tour.
Indians 2, Blue Jays 0: Indians lead series, 1-0. Toronto's Marco Estrada pitched a complete game surrendering six hits with five strikeouts and one walk. Happ starts against Josh Tomlin .

The team's current coordinator coached under Ryan as a defensive backs coach with the New York Jets. Heyward had played in 85 straight games since being selected 31st overall by the Steelers in the 2011 National Football League draft.
It's a compelling series between two teams that, like their American League counterparts, had one team (the Cubs) win the regular-season series four games to three. Maybe 2016 will be the year this anniversary becomes a positive footnote rather than a landmark moment in Cubs' franchise history. Is the rotation really OK? .
Tottenham are the only unbeaten side in the Premier League after the opening seven fixtures following their triumph over City at White Hart Lane. They lost their first game against Monaco by 1-2 and won their second game against CSKA Moscow by 0-1 away from home.
And I hope you have enjoyed. "I am only anxious about Motherwell". "When you come back to here, only worry about Celtic". The lad is back at Celtic with a real spring in his step after shining for France's under-20 side when he was on worldwide duty last week.
Last season he was ranked as the 13th best player and this season he fell to 15th on the magazine's annual list. Saying " Anthony's better than Blake" or tweeting " Melo is $#*t" is not really going to help in ending a debate - it only contributes to starting a new one.
Charlton fans have held several protests against owner Roland Duchâtelet and Coventry fans are unhappy with how their club is being run by the Sisu group. They have since oscillated between the Championship and League One. "It followed a well-attended joint march from Charlton railway station by Addicks and Sky Blues fans".
There's only one Kershaw, but there are all those Cubs catching everything with Gold Glove brilliance, making big pitches in high-leverage spots, getting home runs from pitchers , and watching young hitters going back up the middle with veteran discipline to cap an unbelievable rally.
They've had an especially tough time stopping the pass, however, which could be a problem if Newton is able to go. Newton has rushed for more yards (3,354) than any quarterback in the NFL since he entered the league in 2011. If they want to turn the tables on their season, and it is crucial to have their MVP, Newton leading the team. It's the third straight NFC South game the Panthers have on their hands, but the Saints have much to prove after getting their first win of the season in ...
England keeper Joe Hart posted a picture of his wonder save for the Three Lions against Slovenia to his official Instagram account after Gareth Southgate's side laboured to a 0-0 draw in Ljubljana . "My body is in absolute pieces and I'll struggle to get up tomorrow I think". Southgate revealed he had a "long chat" with the 29-year-old earlier in the week.
Malta may only be ranked 176th in the world but Southgate is keen to make his mark ahead of tougher games in World Cup Qualifying Group F. Unlike numerous players, Rooney has not spoken to Allardyce since the manager's unceremonious departure, or even exchanged text messages.
Kaepernick has received more attention for his national anthem protests than his play this season. It's the only move Kelly has right now, and one that may not make much difference. Kaepernick lost job after 2-6 start previous year, and then had season-ending left shoulder surgery . The contract also converts Kaepernick's $2 million roster bonuses this year into guarantees and he can earn an additional $1 million based on meeting certain playing time thresholds, a person familiar with the ...
I want to earn it. "I think those meetings have been pretty dynamic". On defense, the Eagles gave up their first three passing touchdowns of the season _ all in the first half. As a defense coach, when you have a quarterback that can... when you have the ideal defense called, when you have it stopped and then the guy can create with his legs, you know, that's the thing that this kid can do and when quarterbacks can create when things around them break down, that's where it's hard.
It may of only been a matter of time before that happened for Newton. The Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints come into Sunday's game with their season on life support. "And that's something we have to just calm down and play the game", said Jordan, who said his advice to younger players when they face Newton is to not let Newton's big plays snowball.
Buttler was visibly irked, walking back towards the opposing players before turning to leave the field at the behest of the umpires, and suggested they perhaps been over-exuberant. England play Bangladesh in the second one-day worldwide at the same Dhaka venue on Sunday. "Rightly they are happy to get a wicket but there is no need to run in someone's face and celebrate".
We've got a long road ahead. So much for the notion that Brady might be rusty. He didn't throw an interception and was given a little more time off for his efforts, as Jimmy Garoppolo took over at quarterback with a little more than six minutes to play in the lopsided game.
Denver will be without the services of head coach Gary Kubiak , who was taken by ambulance to the hospital Sunday and kept overnight for evaluation. "If he was just the average person, I'd expect him back to work in a week". Palmer thus could be back for Arizona's game next Monday night, at home game against the Jets.
We had big chances, with wonderful saves and big misses", Mourinho said. "Every game is massive", Mourinho said. "There is always a surprise behind the door when you work with the team for three, four or five months". "They're having a go, they don't want to have a season like they had previous year and you can see the intent in their play". That left them vulnerable in the game's closing stages and Joe Allen smashed home from point-blank range to seal a hit-and-run by the visitors, who ...
We're not buying the "now Brady is mad and even more motivated" storyline some are pushing. "Inevitably, if you are down 20-something points and throwing it every play, people are going to beat the offensive line up because they are giving up sacks in the fourth quarter", Whitworth said .
But Dallas strolled into AT&T and dominated the game from the onset. "Oftentimes people will say, 'We'll give a couple more weeks, ' and all that kind of stuff, [but] you need to get ready for playing a game". Now Jones may be able to focus more on pass-rushing duties. He had five tackles ( one of them for a loss) and 1.5 sacks. Basically, you have to be aggressive and attack the Cowboys , take your chances in some on-on-one situations on the back-end and hope to limit the ability of ...
Jürgen Klopp has expressed bewilderment at Liverpool's new-year fixture schedule and claimed the demands of two Premier League games in less than 46 hours explains why England routinely fail at worldwide tournaments. "The situations are not that different", he added . They have big quality in their team and we have to respect this but, of course, it's Anfield .
The honour of securing the win fell to Moore, who was only chosen as the final wild card seven days earlier after losing out in a play-off for the Tour Championship to McIlroy. U.S. captain Davis Love on Sky Sports: "We have been criticised for eight or 10 years for not coming together". "This was a victory long in the planning and entirely merited for the U.S., who tore into the competition on Friday morning and finished it at similar speed in Sunday's singles".
Patrick Reed took down Rory McIlroy in the opening match and the Europeans were never really allowed back in it. Mickelson's half point put the US on the verge of the win, and Ryan Moore - picked only the Sunday before under a new system championed by Mickelson to find hot players - delivered the winning point in the next group.
A conceivable defeat to Klopp's in-form side could leave United six points behind its great rival and eight behind league leader Manchester City. Three other players whose importance to the Reds is paramount, Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane, returned from the global break injury free.
His teammate Rohit, who rescued India's second innings with a brilliant 82, gained 14 spots to find himself at the No.38 spot. Staying with the same series, New Zealand's Ross Taylor and BJ Watling struggled in hard subcontinent conditions and saw their rankings reflect the same, while captain Kane Williamson's absence due to a viral fever cost him as well.
Campaigning Tuesday in Colorado, Trump's son Eric said conversations like that are "what happens when alpha personalities are in the same presence". Nobody is claiming that locker rooms aren't home to an ample amount of raunchy chats or dirty jokes, but athletes like Kluwe are helping dispel the notion that men's sports locker rooms are safe havens for sexism, debauchery and general intolerance.
Mourinho has favoured Juan Mata - who was sold to United by the Portuguese during his days in charge at Chelsea - ahead of Rooney in recent matches, with the captain having scored just once for the Red Devils this season. "Oh?' and then this Dutch guy (Verheijen) says 'The training is not too good". Do you say "only 50 per cent against City because we have Sunderland on Monday".
However, the second goal came shortly thereafter, which was no more than Chelsea deserved. Yet his frustration in the transfer market, where Conte was forced to make panic buys for defenders David Luiz and Marcos Alonso after missing out on his top targets, was the first sign it might not be all plain sailing at a club notorious for behind the scenes politicking that can make a manger's life hard.
Subsequently, interim manager Southgate announced that Rooney will indeed be a substitute for the Slovenia game - the first time that England's record goalscorer has been dropped since 2004. "He has taken a hard job from Steven Gerrard and grown into the position". "But rather than one man doing so, I don't see any reason why it can't be two of the brightest young talents in the game - Marcus Rashford and Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli".
If the Green Bay Packers keep playing like they did in Sunday night's win against the New York Giants , the storyline of the 2016 season eventually will turn to their dominant defense, and the tale of their inconsistent offense could become an afterthought even if Aaron Rodgers never returns to his MVP level.
His stats in Sunday's 48-33 win were staggering. CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Carolina Panthers are 1-3, their MVP quarterback has a concussion and their young secondary just allowed Matt Ryan to throw for 503 yards and four touchdowns. It's a pretty incredible piece of information when you think about it. In the end, his numbers were ridiculous. His QB rating (80.2) is at a career low and he's only completing 57.9 percent of his passes.
And this 78-point win isn't just the largest margin of victory in a Big Ten conference game, it's the largest deficit in any Big Ten game this century, and by 11 points! Even though his football team has stumbled through the first six games, a stretch that often resembled an obstacle course.
Chelsea , who are at 13 points from 7 games and are placed 7th on the league table are on the verge of back to back home defeats for the first time since 2011. N'Golo is an important player for the present and the future for Chelsea . 'I thought a lot before this game about the 7 matches in 22 days and my team was a little exhausted and now I prefer to change some things.
