LOS ANGELES - The people started streaming for the exits during the top of the ninth inning Sunday after the New York Yankees, the better goliath for at least the weekend, tacked on their final run at Dodger Stadium. They produced it in opportunistic fashion, the way runs must come so often in the postseason, when games like this heavyweight tilt matter beyond bragging rights and tiebreakers. ...

MINNEAPOLIS - Holton Hill said he won't do it again. He will not be suspended again. We'll see. One week from starting his eight-week banishment from the NFL, the talented second-year cornerback said in no uncertain terms that the Vikings will be able to count on him beginning Oct. 28 when he returns from two NFL drug suspensions and is eligible to play at Kansas City on Nov. 3. "Everybody ...

DETROIT - There was a time when Reggie Jackson was the most important player on the Detroit Pistons roster. That time wasn't so long ago, but it seems like eons ago, with the subsequent trade for Blake Griffin, the emergence of Andre Drummond and a complete overhaul of the roster. For much of 2015-16, in Jackson's first full season with the Pistons, he was the offensive catalyst and averaged ...

Maybe they learned something from the way the Detroit Lions handled Calvin Johnson's retirement, or maybe they knew it was the right thing to do all along. Whatever the case, the Indianapolis Colts will not force quarterback Andrew Luck to repay a prorated portion of his signing bonus after Luck's surprise retirement Saturday, ESPN reported.

LOS ANGELES – Wracking up his highest strikeout total of the year, Clayton Kershaw was still not immune to the Yankees' immense power. And it began with the game's first batter. D.J.

And if this is ...

OAKLAND, Calif. - Evan Longoria picked up his 1,000th career RBI in the third inning Sunday with a solo home run to center field. But he didn't stop there. Longoria's two-run single with the bases loaded in the seventh inning proved to be the difference as the Giants came away with a 5-4 win over the A's at the Coliseum to capture the Bay Bridge Series three games to one. After seeing Buster ...

ST. LOUIS - The Cardinals scored six runs in the second inning, rallying from an early deficit to beat the Colorado Rockies 11-4 Sunday at Busch Stadium before a crowd of 45,551 in a game delayed by more than 2{ hours by rain. It was the Cardinals' fourth consecutive victory over the Rockies. Heading into a three-game series that begins Monday in Milwaukee, St. Louis has won seven of eight and ...

SEATTLE - If there is such a thing as a smile that is part sheepish and part sly, Marco Gonzales might have it mastered. It's the combination of being the guy you want your daughter/sister to marry and also being the rip-your-opponents-heart competitor you wish there were more of on your team. It appeared again following Sunday's 3-1 victory over Toronto that secured a fourth straight series ...
