Wilson’s late heroics lift Seahawks over Packers

After a shaky beginning, Russell Wilson got hot in the fourth quarter, Bobby Wagner and Seattle’s defense stymied Aaron Rodgers and the Seahawks stayed in the middle of the NFC playoff race. “We’ve been through so much throughout this season it was time to get over the hump,” Wagner said. “We’ve been down, we’ve been up, we’ve lost close games, we’ve won close games. It was time.” Wilson threw for 225 yards and his 15-yard touchdown pass to Ed Dickson with 5:08 left was the difference in the Seahawks’ 27-24 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night. In

Red Sox’s Mookie Betts caps off winning year with MVP award

Mookie Betts is ready to become an ambassador for baseball, now that he’s won a batting title, World Series and Most Valuable Player award with Boston. “I enjoy being kind of a face around the game. I’ve kind of used this pedestal or whatever you want to say to spread knowledge that the game is fun,” he said Thursday after his runaway victory for the AL MVP award. Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich was close to a unanimous pick for the NL honour. A 26-year-old outfielder just like Betts, Yelich also won a batting championship and led his team to a division

Matt Wallace FINED £3,000 for slow play despite back-to-back Dubai birdies

This season’s triple Tour winning Wallace was adjudged to have taken too long to putt out for par on the ninth hole and this after bizarrely being timed in birdying both the seventh and eighth holes on the Earth Course. The Tour’s Chief Referee, Andy McFee, was waiting for Wallace as he headed to the scorer’s hut having ended his round by also birding four of his closing five holes. His round of 68 saw him share fifth place in the closing Rolex Series event. Wallace had been advised by McFee he was ‘on the clock’ during the time he

Khris Davis powers Athletics past Blue Jays

Khris Davis smacked his 29th home run among three hits Tuesday night, powering the Oakland Athletics to a 6-2 win over the visiting Toronto Blue Jays.

Right-hander Trevor Cahill (3-2) limited the Blue Jays to two runs in six innings and the Oakland bullpen cleaned up with three innings of one-hit relief, helping the A’s open an eight-game homestand with a second straight win.

The Blue Jays scored in the top of the first against Cahill on a double by Randal Grichuk and an RBI single by Kendrys Morales, before Davis contributed a single to a two-run bottom of the first that gave the A’s the lead for good.

M​att Olson drove in the two runs with a bases-loaded single, scoring Nick Martini and Matt Chapman, who had opened the inning with consecutive walks off Blue Jays starter Sam Gaviglio (2-4).

Davis’ homer, his eighth in the last 10 games, led off a three-run third inning. Doubles by Olson and Mark Canha made it 4-1, before Canha stole home on the front end of a double-steal with Marcus Semien, who had singled.

Gaviglio couldn’t finish the inning. He left after 2 2/3 innings, charged with five runs on eight hits. He walked two and struck out two.

Justin Smoak got Toronto within 5-2 in the fourth with a solo homer, his 17th of the season. But Oakland countered with its final run in the sixth when Chapman doubled and scored on Davis’ third hit, an RBI single.

The three-RBI game was Davis’ 10th of the season, raising his season total to 84. Cahill allowed five hits in his six innings. He walked two and struck out six.

Chapman scored twice, while Davis and Olson drove in two runs apiece for the A’s, who had won six in a row before losing three straight in a series at Colorado that ended Sunday.

Olson, Canha and Semien collected two hits apiece for Oakland. Morales had two hits for the Blue Jays, who have lost six straight to the A’s this season by a margin of 43-15.
