Game Wrap: Brewers defeat Dodgers, lead NLCS 2-1


Mason Crosby hits FG as time expires to help Packers top 49ers

A pick, a penalty and a game-winning kick. Quite a final minute for the Green Bay Packers. Mason Crosby kicked a 27-yard field goal as time expired to cap an 81-yard drive set up by Kevin King’s interception with 1:07 left, and the Packers outlasted the San Francisco 49ers for a 33-30 win on Monday night. The final drive was extended after 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman was called for an illegal contact penalty on third-and-15 that wiped out a sack of Rodgers with 43 seconds left. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers rushed up the middle for a 21-yard gain on the next

Brewers blank Dodgers to retake NLCS lead

A veteran starter, an intimidating bullpen and a twice-demoted shortstop who is suddenly flashing power helped the Milwaukee Brewers take a 2-1 lead in the NL Championship Series. Jhoulys Chacin combined with four relievers on a five-hitter and Orlando Arcia hit a two-run homer in a 4-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday. Los Angeles loaded the bases against Jeremy Jeffress in the ninth inning, but the struggling closer shut the door. He struck out Yasmani Grandal and pinch-hitter Brian Dozier to complete Milwaukee’s third shutout in six playoff games this year. “Our guys that we’re giving the

Red Sox ace Chris Sale released from hospital, will rejoin team for Game 3

Boston Red Sox ace Chris Sale was released from the hospital Monday and will rejoin the team in Houston before Game 3 of the AL Championship Series. Sale was released from Massachusetts General Hospital, where he had gone because of a stomach illness after he pitched in the series opener. He was hospitalized Sunday night for observation. Manager Alex Cora said “everything is fine” and Sale would be back with the team before Game 3 on Tuesday. When asked about Sale’s status for the rest of the ALCS, Cora said he wanted to see the pitcher first before making that

Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, owner of NFL’s Seahawks and NBA’s Blazers, dead at 65

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, the man who persuaded school-friend Bill Gates to drop out of Harvard to start what became the world’s biggest software company, died on Monday at the age of 65, his family said. Allen left Microsoft in 1983, before the company became a corporate juggernaut, following a dispute with Gates, but his share of their original partnership allowed him to spend the rest of his life and billions of dollars on yachts, art, rock music, sports teams, brain research and real estate. Allen died from complications of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of cancer, the Allen family said

Changing of the guard as Scott Arfield takes over as Canada soccer captain

A changing of the guard is under way with the Canadian men’s soccer team with Scott Arfield taking over as permanent captain from Atiba Hutchinson. Health permitting, Arfield will lead out the 79th-ranked Canadians against No. 177 Dominica in CONCACAF Nation League qualifying play Tuesday at BMO Field. The Glasgow Rangers midfielder also wore the captain’s armband for last month’s 8-0 win over the U.S. Virgin Islands. Arfield, who left practice early Sunday as a precautionary move with a minor knock, has won 13 caps for Canada since making his debut in March 2016. The 35-year-old Hutchinson, arguably Canada’s best

Gleb and Vadim Alekseenko banned from tennis for life for match fixing

Ukrainian twins Gleb and Vadim Alekseenko have been banned from tennis for life and each fined $250,000 (£190,018) for match fixing. The pair were found guilty of multiple match-fixing offences at a number of ITF Futures tournaments between June 2015 and January 2016. They also arranged for another person to bet on matches which they contrived the result. The case was based on an investigation by the Tennis Integrity Unit. The match-fixing offences occurred at tournaments in Romania, Russia, Germany and Turkey on the Futures tour, tennis’ third-tier of tournaments. Vadim Alekseenko is 1,113th in the ATP rankings, having reached

The British Masters is upon us as the players take to Walton Heath this week with several European Ryder Cup stars in action.

Justin Rose is the tournament host and fans will no doubt be delighted to see Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari back on the course.

Rose skipped his media duties ahead of the competition getting underway due to illness but is still hopeful he’ll be fit to play.

He said: ”I’m going to be doing everything I can to be out here as fresh as a daisy, or as a rose!

“I’m having a great time. The Pro-Am was fun, even though I wasn’t feeling great.

“I’m a little fragile at the moment, but I think I’ve heard nothing but good reports about the golf course and we’re all excited to get it underway tomorrow.”

Rose is due to tee-off with Ireland’s Paul Dunne, won this event last year, and Matthew Fitzpatrick, the 2015 champion.

Live coverage of the British Masters comes from Sky Sports in the UK and Ireland.

Betfair golf expert Joe Dyer said: “It’s all about the Ryder Cup on the European Tour this week with three stars from 2018’s victorious team vying for favouritism in Betfair’s British Masters market.

“Tournament host Justin Rose sits atop the pile, at 7/1 to back, a smidgen ahead of 15/2 Francesco Molinari.

“Tommy Fleetwood, second in last week’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, is 10/1.

“Seven places are available for each-way punters this week at one fifth the odds.

“The Ryder Cup theme continues as we look down the betting with another star from Le Golf National, Thorbjorn Olesen, next up at 22/1, the same price as Matthew Fitzpatrick, the winner of the 2015 British Masters.

“Walton Heath is expected to demand the sort of strategic golf that Fitzpatrick can deliver, and he is a selection for the Betfair golf team in our weekly each-way column.”
